Level: third year THIRD TERM TEST


Nine known planets revolve around the sun. They greatly in size, mass, temperature, rate of rotation, and composition. They are commonly divided into two groups: the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars) and the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto). The inner planets are small and are composed primarily of rock and iron. The outer planets (except Pluto) are much larger and consist mainly of hydrogen, helium, and ice.

Mercury is surprisingly dense, apparently because it has an unusually large iron core. With only a transient atmosphere, Mercury has a surface that still bears the record of bombardment by astreoidal bodies early in its history. Venus has a carbon dioxide atmosphere 90 times thicker than that of Earth, causing an efficient greenhouse effect by which the Venusian atmosphere is heated. The resulting surface temperature is the hottest of any planet-about 477C. The Earth is the only planet with abundant liquid water and life. Strong evidence exists that Mars once had water on its surface (and still has below the surface, in the form of ice), but now its carbon dioxide (CO2) atmosphere is so thin that the planet is predominantly dry and cold, with polar caps of solid carbon dioxide, or dry ice. Jupiter is the largest of the planets. Its hydrogen and helium atmosphere contains pastel- coloured clouds, and its immense magnetosphere, rings, and satellites make it a planetary system into itself. Saturn rivals Jupiter, with a much more intricate ring structure and more satellites, including one with a dense atmosphere- Titan. Uranus and Neptune are deficient in hydrogen compared with the two giants; Uranus, also ringed, has the distinction of rotating at 98 to the plane of its orbit. Pluto seems similar to the larger, icy satellites of Jupiter or Saturn. Pluto is so distant from the Sun and so cold that methane freezes on its surface.

READ THE TEXT CAREFULLY THEN ANSWER TH QUESTIONS:

Section one:

1/ how many sentences are there in the first paragraph?

2/ Are these statements true or false:

Planets are identical in composition.

Jupiter is one of the inner planets.

Early in its history, Mercury was bombarded by asteroids.

Because of its CO2 thick atmosphere, Venus is the hottest planet.

3/what do the underlined words refer to?

4/ answer the following questions according to the text:

How many planets revolve around the sun? Name them.

Does Mars appertain to the inner planets?

Why is Mercury dense?

Why is the atmosphere in Venus hot?

5/find in the 2nd paragraph words opposite in meaning to the following:

1. late≠.............................

2. thinner≠........................

3. scare≠............................

4. Very small≠....................

5. melts≠............................

6/Rewrite sentence (b) so that it means the same as sentence (a).

a- Many new satellites have been discovered by astronomers.

b- Astronomers.......................................................................

a- The moon can be seen from Earth the without help of telescopes.

b- People..........................................................................................

7/ Fill in the gaps with the following words:

As- beings- its- that- Sun solar

The Sun is the star that dominates the.............systemthe planetary system......... includes the Earth. By the radiation of its electromagnetic energy, the .............furnishes directly or indirectly all of the energy supporting life on Earth. For most of the time that human..........have been on the Earth, the Sun has been regarded.........an object of special significance. Many ancient cultures worshipped the Sun, and many more recognized................

significance in the cycle of life.



8/Add the appropriate suffix to form nouns
