5) Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

You are at a restaurant and you bite into a chilli pepper. Your eyes start

to water. You cough. You sweat. Your lips, tongue and mouth burn. It feels

like your head is going to explode. Your only thought is: 'Help! How can I

put out this fire?' What makes it burn is a chemical called capsaicin (or

capsicum). Capsaicin is the oil found in no other plant except hot pepper. It

is colourless and odourless. But if you put one drop of that oil into 100,000

drops of water and drank it, you would still feel the heat. Here is why it feels

like a fire in your mouth: your tongue has sensors that cause you to feel pain

from high temperatures. These sensors make you feel such pain. Some kinds

of chilli pepper are hotter than others. Therefore, the extra heat has to do

with the type – not the amount– of capsaicin.

A- Answer the following questions:

1- What is the effect of capsaicin on the human body?

6) Read the following passage, then answer the questions:

A Japanese professor has produced evidence to show that computer games

can have a bad effect on children. Many parents and grandparents have been

saying this for years, but they were largely ignored, being regarded as

technophobes. Parental worries about computer games often relate to their

effect on their children's health and on their own social skills. They feel that

they should be outdoors; getting exercise and enjoying the fresh air while

playing with their friends. Since many of them usually play by themselves,

they live rather isolated lives, with little opportunity to interact with other

people. As a result, they may be very poor at communication. Parents are

also worried in case the violence of many of the games will cause their

children to become more aggressive and violent themselves. This anxiety

also applies to television, which often shows scenes of extreme cruelty.

A- Answer the following questions:

1- Why are many parents and grandparents regarded as technophobes?

2- What does the underlined word 'themselves' refer to?

3- How far do you agree with the evidence produced by the Japanese

professor? Why?

4- 'poor at communication' means.................... .

a. unable to use their mobile phones

b. clever at making fewer phone calls

c. having difficulty in socializing with others
