If the steam engine mobilized industry, the automobile mobolized people. While ideas for personal vehicles had been around for years. Karl’s Benz’ 1885 Motorwagen, powered by an (26) combustion engine of his own design, is widely considered the first automobile. Henry Ford’ improvementsin the production precess – and (27) marketing – brought the price and the desire for owning an auto into the reach of most Americans. Europe soon followed.
The automobile effects on commerce, society and culture is hard to (28) . Most of us can jump into our car and go wherever we want whenever we want, effectively (29) the size of any community to the distance we’re willing to drive to shop or visit friends. Our cities are largely designed and built around automobile access, with paved roads and parking lots taking up huge amounts of space and a big chunk of our goverments’s (30) . The auto industry has fueled enormous economic growth worldwide, but it’s also generated a lot of pollution.
Reading the following passage and do the tasks below.
It’s important for people to eat as much as they need to give them energy. If they eat too little food or the wrong food they won’t have enough energy. If they eat too much, they will need to make more exercise; otherwise they will put on weight. When we eat the correct quantity of food for the exercise we take, we call this the energy balance.
Fat is very high in calories, and so is no help at all in keeping energy balance. Fat has also been linked with heart disease, and many experts believe that eating less would help to reduce it.
Sugar isn’t good for the energy balance either. The only value of the diet is to provide energy, and you can get that from other foods. There’s no doubt that too much sugar makes you fat and it doesn’t do your teeth much good either.
Fibre, on the other hand is something that we eat too little of. One of the simplest ways of eating more fibre is to eat more bread, particularly whole meal, granary, or high fibre bread. It’s a good, cheap source of fibre and nutrients without too many calories. Potatoes are good, too. Like bread, they are underrated, but they’re excellent for filling you up without making you fat, especially if you don’t cover them with butter or fry them in fat.
So eat less fatty food (sweets, chocolate, cakes pudding, jam) and eat more fibre foods (bread, potatoes, pasta, fresh fruit and vegetables).
Are these sentences true or false? Justify.

Where would we be without muscles? Probably a mess on the floor. Muscles are pretty interesting things. Everybody has lots of them. Some people (36) them better than others. (37) want to have really big muscles. The bigger the better. They spend hours in the gym (38) to make their muscles as big as they can. (39) work on the specific muscles they need for their sport. If you look at a hundred-metre runner, you’ll notice they have large shoulder and arm muscles. This is so they can (40) when they run. An interesting thing about muscles is that it takes more face muscles to frown than it does to smile. This means smiling uses less energy, so we should do it more.
