Much of what we throw away could be used again. Recycling puts “garbage” to good use. Recycling helps preserve precious resources because it saves on the use of raw materials and energy. It also reduces the pollution caused when the waste is dumped.
Glass can be re-melted. This is better than making fresh glass from raw materials, but it is even better to reuse the bottle whole.
Metals can be recycled by being re-melted and then used to make other new items. The metals to recycle from an ordinary household are aluminum and steel from cans. Scrap from cars gives several different metals for recycling.
Paper is easy to recycle. Every home and office should have a paper reclining routine.
Plastics are the worst problems because they do not biodegrade (breakdown) easily. They are also hard to recycle and cause harmful pollution when burned.
It is important to use as few plastics as possible, and then only ones that are recyclable or biodegradable.

Text 5 ( This is for questions no. 14 to 18 )

We are writing to complain about ads on TV. There are so many ads, especially during our favorite programs. We think they should be stopped for a number of reasons.
Ads are a nuisance. They go on for a long time and there are so many. Sometimes there seems to be more ads than programs.
Ads are a bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to buy unhealthy food like beer, soft drink, candy and chips. And they make people want things they do not really need and cannot afford.
The people who make ads have too much say in what programs people watch. That is because they want to put all their ads on popular programs that a lot of people watch. Some programs which are not so popular get stopped because they do not attract enough ads, even though those programs may be someone’s favorites.
For those reasons, we think your TV station should stop showing ads. They interrupt programs. They are a bad influence on people, and they are sometimes put a stop to people’s favorite shows. We are sick of ads, and now we mostly watch other channels.

Snake In the Bath

How would you like to find a snake in your bath ? A nasty one too !
We had just moved into a new house, which had been empty for so long that everything was in a terrible mess. Anna and I decided we would clean the bath first, so we set to, and turned on the tap.
Suddenly to my horror, a snake’s head appeared in the plug hole. Then out slithered the rest of his long thin body. He twisted and turned on the slippery bottom of the bath, spitting and hissing at us.
For an instant I stood there quite paralyzed. Then I yelled for my husband, who luckily came running and killed the snake with the handle of a broom. Anna, who was only three at the time, was quite interested in the whole business. Indeed I had to pull her out of the way or she’d probably have leant over the bath to get a better look.
We found out later that it was a black mamba, a poisonous kind of snake. It had obviously been fast asleep, curled up as the bottom of the nice warm water-pipe. It must have had an awful shock when the cold water came trickling down! But nothing to the shock I got ! Ever since then I’ve always put the plug in firmly before running the bath water.
