    Classical Indian dances are among the most graceful and beautiful in the world. Dancers use their eyes, hands, arms, legs, hips, knees, waist and feet to express various emotions like love, anger, hatred and amusement. They dance to vocal and instrumental accompaniment.
    There are five major styles of Indian classical dance: Bharatanatyam, Kathak, Odissi, Kathakali and Manipuri. Though these dances were developed in different regions of India, they share the common thread of telling stories of Hindu gods.
    Bharatanatyam is a style of dance from the south of India. It is probably one of the oldest styles of Indian classical dance. A solo dancer performs it. Kathak is a style of dance of north India and was created in the courts of the Mughal rulers. It involves energetic footwork and expressive eye movements. Kathakali comes from the state of Kerala. The entire dance is like a play and the dancers dress in enormous, colourful costumes. They also wear heavy make-up on their faces, which they have to learn to do by themselves, and which takes several hours to get on. There was a time when only men performed the Kathakali dance but now women also perform it. Manipuri dance is typical style from Manipur in north eastern India. Odissi is from Orissa. It is similar to Bharatanatyam but the dancer makes a lot of different stunning poses in this dance. Initially only women performed Odissi but later men dressed as women for performances.

    Environmental pollution is the biggest danger faced by our planet, the Earth. And this danger is posed because of things that humans do which harms the natural environment. Some kinds of pollution are visible, e.g., a heap of rubbish, black smoke being let out from a truck. There are also other kinds of pollution that are invisible, for example, noise from traffic or machinery.
    There are many kinds of environmental pollution. All parts of the environment are connected with one another, one pollutant like pesticides can damage more than one natural system like sea life, trees, crops and others. This can cause the greenhouse effect or warming all over the Earth that happens when the Earth's atmosphere traps the Sun/s heat. Some of the pollutants are untreated sewage, solid waste like plastic and food, industrial waste like harmful chemicals, oils spills into the oceans from sinking oil tankers, pesticides, fuel exhaust from vehicles, indoor pollution and fertilizers. What these pollutants damage are water, soil and the air that we breathe.
    Some of the things that you can do to save our Earth are recycling as many different materials like paper and glass, not using disposable like plastic containers, using public transport or car pools to reduce car exhaust fumes. Save electricity and water when and where you can, by using them wisely So do your bit and save your planet.

    If you think a taxidermist has anything to do with driving a taxi then you will learn something new by the end of this passage. A taxidermist is a person whose job is to preserve dead animals and show them as they looked when they were alive. The word taxidermy comes from two Greek words meaning arrangement and skin.
    A taxidermist first takes exact measurements of the body of the dead animal. He/She then carefully removes and cleans the skin with a preservative or a special soap. The taxidermist then makes a drawing of the animal?s body structure, including its muscles and bones. This is done so that by looking at the drawing he/she makes a skeleton frame of the animal out of metal or wood. Or he/she may use the real skeleton of the animal if it is available. To this skeleton, the taxidermist adds clay and completes the animal's shape to make a mould. Once the shape is ready, it is used to make casting from the mould. Finally, the skin of the animal is glued and sewed on to the casting or sculpture of the animal.
    To become a taxidermist, a person needs to be proficient at natural history, drawing, sculpture, mechanics and dyeing.
    The first thing a taxidermist does is to ______.

    A) Make a mould

    B) remove the skin

    C) take measurements of the animal

    D) Both [a] and [b]

    A glacier is a huge block of ice that flows very slowly over land. Glaciers are formed in the North Pole and South Pole and in high mountains. The cold climate and low temperatures in these areas help large amounts of ice to collect and turn into ice blocks.
    Glaciers begin to form when more snow falls during the winter months than it evaporates in the summer months. The snow builds up in layers and these layers get heavy because of their weight. Gradually, the ice becomes so thick that it begins to move because of its own weight and starts to move down the mountains. This happens due to the Law of Gravity As they move down the slopes of mountains they melt very slowly getting heat from the Earth.
    As glaciers move downwards, they also change the shape of the land they move on. Most glaciers flow extremely slowly and move less than 30 centimetres a day But some glaciers can also flow up to 15 centimetres a day. The various parts of a glacier move at different speed. The central and upper part of a glacier flows the fastest. The sides and bottom move more slowly because they rub against the walls and floor of the valley.
    World's most famous glaciers are in Europe. They lie in the French and Swiss Alps. They are Mer de Glace and the Aletsch Glacier. There are glaciers in North America as well, such as the Malaspina Glacier in Alaska.
    The ______ climate and ______ temperatures help large amounts of ice blocks to form.

    A) low, warm

    B) humid, cold

    C) Cold, low

    D) cold, moderate
