1 Gozo College Boys Secondary Victoria - Gozo, Malta Ninu Cremona Half-Yearly Examination Form 3 Sec. ENGLISH Time: 15mins TEACHER S PAPER This Valentine's Day, millions of people will exchange heart-shaped gifts of all kinds, from candy to cards. But did you know that the human heart does not actually look like the typical valentine shape? National Geographic Kids spoke with heart specialist Robert DiBianco to learn more about this important organ. According to Dr. DiBianco, the human heart is about the size of a fist. "Because [the heart] is a muscle with lots of blood supplied to it, it looks red like meat," he explained. "In people who are overweight... the heart looks yellow because it is covered with yellow fat." In the United States children are taught to place their hands over their hearts when pledging allegiance to the flag. Most people have heard that the heart is on the left side of the chest. In reality, the heart is in the middle of the chest, tucked snugly between the two lungs. But what does the heart actually do? DiBianco explained that the heart is a pump that pushes blood throughout the body. The heart moves blood by expanding and contracting (getting bigger and smaller). "Each living part of the body needs blood to live, and that's why it's important for the blood to go to different parts of the body," DiBianco said. When you're exercising, it takes your blood about ten seconds to get from your heart to your big toe and back. In fact, a kid's heart has to push blood through about 60,000 miles (96,560 kilometers) of blood vessels that's long enough to circle the Earth two and a half times! All that pumping takes a lot of effort. To push blood, an average heart beats a hundred thousand times a day. That means that in a lifetime, the average human heart will beat more than two and a half billion times. Because the heart is so important, the American Heart Association reminds people that they need to treat their hearts with care. Exercise and healthful foods can help the heart do its job. This Valentine's Day, heart-shaped gifts will be everywhere. Maybe that's why February is also American Heart Month! Gozo College Boys Secondary Page 1 of 10

5 B. Reading Comprehension (20 marks) Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions below. Tourism Coconut Island is a beautiful, tropical island with coconut palms, golden beaches and clear blue sea. I m sorry, I made a mistake! Coconut Island was a beautiful island. There are still coconut palms, golden beaches and clear blue sea but not like before. So, what happened? Well, the beach is full of people, sunbeds and umbrellas. The sea is full of speedboats, noisy jets skis and surfers. There are fewer palm trees because there are more buildings. Hotels, holiday resorts, guest houses, restaurants, swimming pools can now be found on Coconut Island. Paradise is no longer here, but the Paradise Hotel is. The tourists seem happy: the weather is wonderful, the food is tasty and cheap, and the sea is warm. The local people seem happy: there are many people selling things on the beach, there are more jobs and better roads. The developers are certainly happy, there is construction work everywhere. So, why am I unhappy? Well, I have a friend who was here five years ago. Her photo album is full of wonderful pictures of empty beaches. She also has pictures of small, wooden bungalows on the beach. No need to book, she said, just turn up and you have the place to yourself very basic, very cheap, very quiet and very peaceful. Not anymore! The beach is never empty it s packed all day! There is music blaring from the cafés, children are shouting and screaming, and the hotels are very expensive. Most of the hotels are full of holidaymakers who booked their trip months ago. I m lucky to have a small room at the back of one hotel, and it s still expensive. Then I see an old woman trying to cross the road from her house to the shops. It s no longer a small, quiet road but a large and very busy one. She looks nervous and waits for someone to walk with her. The children no longer ride bicycles but race around the island on motorbikes. It s not so safe either my friend stayed in a bungalow on the beach that had no lock. Now the hotel room says it s a good idea to put things in the safe box. Is this progress? Page 5 of 10
