With the cost of producing and distributing food becoming increasingly expensive, consumers are paying much higher prices for their food. In many cities around the world, this has led to a new movement to produce locally grown food. The idea is to cut the distance food has to travel and have a reliable source of fresh vegetables available to people living in big cities. The main difficulty of growing vegetables in the city is that land is very expensive, so using currently wasted space, such as roofs, is seen as a solution. There are hundreds of unused sites that can play an important role in creating a more sustainable environment. However, it is clear that it is not possible to have a rooftop garden to provide all the vegetables needed for the whole city, especially when the roof is not the easiest place to grow vegetables. There needs to be a good supply of rainwater and the plants need to be protected from the wind.

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.A number of factors related to the voice reveal the personality of the speaker. The first is the broad area of ​​communication, which includes imparting information by use of language, communicating with a group or an individual and specialized communication through performance. A person conveys thoughts and ideas through choice of words, by a tone of voice that is pleasant or unpleasant, gentle or harsh, by the rhythm that is inherent within the language itself, and by speech rhythms that are flowing and regular or uneven and hesitant, and finally, by the pitch and melody of the utterance. When speaking before a group, a person’s tone may indicate or fright, confidence or calm uncertainty. At interpersonal levels, the tone may reflect ideas and feelings over and above the words chosen, or may belie them. Here the participant’s tone can consciously or unconsciously reflect intuitive sympathy or antipathy, lack of concern or interest, fatigue, anxiety, enthusiasm or excitement, all of which are.usually discernible by the acute listener. Public performance is a manner of communication that is highly specialized with its own techniques for obtaining effects by voice and /or gesture. The motivation derived from the text, and in the case of singing, the music, in combination with the performer’s skills, personality, and ability to create empathy will determine the success of artistic, political, or pedagogic communication.Second, the voice gives psychological clues to a person’s self-image, perception of others, and emotional health. Self-image can be indicated by a tone of voice that is confident, pretentious, shy, aggressive, outgoing, or exuberant, to name only a few personality traits. Also the sound may give a clue to the facade or mask of that person, for example, a shy person hiding behind an overconfident front. How a speaker perceives the listener receptiveness, interest or sympathy in any given conversation, can alter the tone of presentation, by encouragement or discouraging the speaker. Emotional health is evidenced in the voice by free and melodic sounds of the happy, by constricted and harsh sound of the angry, and by dull and lethargic qualities of the depressed. Why does the author mention “artistic, political, or pedagogic communication” ?
