         Have you ever wondered how people get chocolate for? In this article we’ll enter the amazing
world for chocolate so you can understand exactly what you’re eating
         Chocolate starts with a tree called the cacao tree. This tree grows in equatorial regions,
especially in place such as South America, Africa, and Indonesia. The cacao tree produces a fruit about
the size of small pine apple. Inside the fruit are the tree’s seeds, also known as cacao beans.
         The beans are fermented for about a week, dried in the sun and then shipped to the chocolate
maker. The chocolate maker starts by roasting the beans to bring out the flavor. Different beans from
different place have different qualities and flavor, so the are often sorted and blended to produce a
distinctive mix. Next, the roated beand are winnowed. Winnowing removes the meat nib of the cacao
beans bean from its shell. Then, the nibs are blended. The blended nibs are ground to make it a liquid.
The liquid is called chocolate liquor. It tastes bitter. All seeds contain some amount of fat, and cacao
beans are not different. However, cacao beans are half fat, which is why the ground nibs from liquid. It’s
pure bitter chocolate.

        Wood chpping is a process used to obtain pulp and paper product from the forest. The wood
chpping process begins when the trees are cut down is in selected area of the forest called a couple.
        Next, the top and branches of the trees are cut out and the logs are taken to the mill. At the mill,
the back of logs is removed and the logs are taken to a chipper, which cut them into small pieces called
woodchip. The woodchips are the screened to remove dirt and other impurities. At this stage, the are
either exported in this from or made into pulp by chemicals and heat. The pulp is then bleached and the
water content is removed.

         Nearly all energy is derived from the sun, either indirectly or directly, in the form of the form of
heat rays and light rays. Electrical energy is derived from the sun indirectly. It can be derived from the
power of the earth’s surface, by mean of the sun’s heat. This water vapour rises, condenses on cooling,
and falls as rain.
        The light and heat energy from coal is also derived in directly from the sun. Coal was formed by
the pressure of the rocks on vegetation which died million of years ago. That vegetation grew with the
aid of sunlight, from which carbohydrates were formed, thus converting solar energy into chemical
energy. When coal is burn some of this energy is released.
        Energy used to drive car engines is derived from petrol, which is also formed with the indirect
aid of the sun. Plants and animal were pressed under the rocks in the earth. These dead animals and
vegetables remains formed petroleum, from which petrol and oil are now obtained.
        Thus the sun can be said to be source of nearly all energy, and in the absence of the sun’s heat
and light, no life could exist on earth.

                                         Why do Volcanoes Erupt?
         A volcanic eruption occurs when hot, liquid rock from far beneath the earth’s surface bursts
outward through an opening in the earth’s crust. A volcano that is eruption is said to be ‘active’. An
‘extinct’ volcano is one which will not erupt again.
         There are active volcanoes in many parts of the world, both on land and under the ocean. As
gases in the liquid rock or ‘magma’ build up pressure, they force the magma upward through the vent of
the volcano.
         The magma bursts through an opening in the surface of the earth called a crater, together with
ash, smoke, and steam. The magma is now called lava. The lava oozes down the outside of the volcano,
where it cools and hardens in layers to from the volcano’s ‘cone’.

        Rain always comes from clouds. But where do clouds come from? How does all the water get
into the sky?
        Think bout your bathroom. There is hot water in your bath. Steam goes up from the hot water.
The steam makes small clouds in the bathroom. These warm clouds meet the cold walls and windows,
and then we see small drops of water on the walls and windows.
        The word is like your bathroom. The water in the oceans is warm when the sun shines on it.
Some of this water goes up into the sky and makes clouds. The wind carries the clouds for hundreds of
kilometers. The clouds meet the cold air in the sky, then we’ll see drop of water. The drops of water are
        The rain falls and runs into rivers. Rivers run into oceans. And the water from oceans changes
into clouds and become rain. So water is always moving from oceans sto clouds to rain to river to

            a. How rain falls
            b. What steam is
            c. The formation of rain
            d. The changing of clouds to rain
            e. How the steam changes into clouds

    28. Which of the following is the right sequence in the formation of rain?
           a. Cloud – rain – water – steam
           b. Steam – cloud – rain – water
           c. Water – steam – cloud – rain
           d. Rain – steam – cloud – water
           e. Water – cloud – steam – rain

    29. In what in way is the world like your bathroom?
            a. In their function
            b. In how to make the water hot
            c. In changing the water into rain
            d. In the sequence of their formation
            e. In the formation of small drops of water

    30. What will happen if the cloud carried by the wind meet the cold air in the sky?
        It will become ....
