Third Term Examination
PART I : (15 pts)
a. Comprehension ( 8pts)
Read the text carefully then do the activities.
Astronomy is the science that deals with the origin, evolution, composition, distance and motion of all bodies and scattered matter in the universe. It includes astrophysics, which discusses the physical properties and structure of all cosmic matter.
Until the invention of the telescope and the discovery of the law of motion and gravity in the 17th century, astronomy was primarily concerned with noting and predicting the position of the sun, moon and planets, initially for calendar and astrological purposes and later for navigational applications and scientific interest.
During the 20th century, astronomy has expanded to include astrophysics, the application of physical and chemical knowledge to an understanding of the nature of celestial objects and the physical processes that control their formation, evolution and emission of radiation.
Its great advances notwithstanding, astronomy is still subject to a major constraint, it is inherently an observational rather than an experimental science. All measurements must be performed at great distances from the objects of interest, with no control over such quantities as their temperature pressure or chemical composition.

7. Fill in each gap with one word so that the passage makes sense :
light – hotter – by – energy

A star is a giant ball of gases held together …………… gravity. It makes heat and …………. Different stars produce different amounts of ………... The amount of energy given off determines the star's surface temperature and color. Red stars are cooler, yellow stars like our sun are a little …………….,and blue stars are the hottest.
PART II: Written Expression(5pts)
Choose one of the following topics.
Using the following notes, write a composition of about 100 words comparing the planet Earth and the other planets.
Start like this: Unlike the other planets, our planet Earth ….
Classified as the third planet
Neither far nor close to the sun
Oxygen availability, plants, trees, animals and people
Convenient to live in
Topic 2 :
Imagine you represent an association that protects hungry people in the world. You attend an international summit about ‘Space Exploration’. You prepare a speech talking about the money spent in space exploration instead of helping the needy. Write your speech.
