III. Passage Comprehension

Read the following text and then answer the questions.

            Have ever seen a greenhouse? Most greenhouses look like a small glass house.

Greenhouses are used to grow plants, especially in the winter. Greenhouses work by trapping heat from the sun. The glass surface of the greenhouse lets light in but keeps heat from getting out. This keeps the plants warm enough to live in the winter. The earth's atmosphere is all around us and is the air that we breathe. The atmosphere works like a greenhouse, too. The sun makes the earth warm. The earth sends some heat back into space, and that helps keep the earth from getting too hot. Most of the earth's heat is trapped by the atmosphere. Like the glass roof of a greenhouse, the atmosphere keeps most of the heat from going back into space. The fact that the atmosphere traps heat is called the "greenhouse effect". It's similar to what happens in a greenhouse. Without the greenhouse effect, the earth would not be warm enough for humans to live. But if the greenhouse effect becomes stronger, it could make the earth warmer than usual. The point is that even a little extra warming may cause problems for humans, plants and animals.

a. harmful gases are produced

b. plants needing warmth are grown

c. we can peacefully breathe

d. dangerous gases go into effect

52. The atmosphere is similar to a greenhouse since it     …       .

b. is made of glass

c. traps heat

d. has harmful effect

53. Without the greenhouse effect,      …            .

a. there would be no life on the earth

b. plants would grow normally

c. there would be no pollution

d. the earth would be too hot to live on

54. A small increase in the earth's temperature     …         .

a. may put our lives in danger  

b. can make the greenhouse effect stronger

c. can be ignored

d. may cause the heat go back into space
