Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions. Like many constructions, it started small; but now thousands of children with autism are making friends and learning social skills by playing a version of online building game Minecraft. Stuart Duncan, a web developer in Timmins, Canada, got the idea through a popular blog he ran about his own experiences with autism as well as bringing up a son with autism. Other parents with autistic children started telling him that their kids were enamoured with a game that let them explore a randomly generated wilderness. However, many of the children were being bullied by other players. So, in 2013, he set up a server to run a version of Minecraft exclusively for children with autism and their families. At first, he thought the invite-only server would attract 10 or 20 people. To his amazement, hundreds requested to join in the first few days. Now, almost three years later, the community boasts nearly 7000 members, along with a team of admins help manage its many activities. “Parents see such a benefit themselves and their children,” says Duncan. Everyday social situations can be challenging for autistic children, who may struggle to pick up on social cues or understand another person’s perspective. Minecraft strips away the pressures typical of the real world. There is no noisy or unfamiliar environment to distract you, no pressure to track the other person’s facial expressions or worry about eye contact. “With Minecraft, you can really just be yourself,” he says. To join Autocraft, you must fill out an application. Once approved, you are free to roam the landscape and build your own structures. You can also take part in group games or build things as a team. However, you have to stick to some rules. Harassing other players or destroying their property can get you banned. Joining a community like Autcraft could be a good first step to feeling lesssocial anxious and more engaged, says Elizabeth Laugeson, director of the PEERS Clinic at the University of California, Los Angeles. The server also caught the eye of Kate Ringland at the University of California, Irvine. She sees Autcraft as not just another online community, but as a tool that helps autistic children practise social skills. “There’s a lot of reflection going on,” she says. “Autcraft is supporting a lot of social behaviours.” (Adapted from https://www.newscientist.com/) Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? – Question and Answer English online

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions. Trees are useful to man in three very important ways; they provide him with wood and other products, they give him shade, and they help to prevent drought and floods. Unfortunately, in many parts of the world man has not realized that the third of these services is the most important. In his eagerness to draw quick profit from the trees, he has cut them down in large numbers, only to find that without them he has lost the best friends he had. Two thousand years ago a rich and powerful country cut down its trees to build warships, with which to gain itself an empire. It gained the empire but without its trees, its soil became hard and poor. When the empire fell to pieces, the country found itself faced by floods and starvation. Even though a government realizes the importance of a plentiful supply of trees, it is difficult for it to persuade the villager to see this The villager wants wood to cook his food with, and he can earn money by making charcoal or selling wood to the townsman . He is usually too lazy or too careless to plant and look after trees. So unless the government has a good system of control, or can educate the people, the forests will slowly disappear. This does not only mean that there will be fewer trees. The results are even more serious. For where there are trees their roots break the soil up, allowing the rain to sink in and also bind the soil, thus preventing it being washed away easily, but where there are no trees, the soil becomes hard and poor. The rain falls on hard ground and flows away on the surface, causing floods and carrying away with it the rich topsoil, in which crops grow so well. When all the topsoil is gone, nothing remains but a worthless desert. In the writer’s opinion, ________________ or the forests slowly disappear.
