My favourite thing is aquarium. It is a place in which aquatic plants and animals, particularly fish, are kept. The term is applied to single tanks for home use in which fish are kept for their decorative effect and interesting habits and to public institutions with tanks for exhibition and scientific study of aquatic life.

I make home aquariums to simulate a natural environment. Aquatic plants supply the oxygen needed by the fish, but often an aerating device is used to furnish additional oxygen. Goldfish enjoy cool water, but the popular tropical fish must have water at a constant temperature of 22°C (72°F) or more. I must keep the water pure and free of algae for long periods by sufficient aeration and by keeping mollusks in the aquarium. A layer of sand or gravel at the bottom of the tank will hold the roots of such important aquatic plants as tape grass, vallisneria spiralis, and aid in the removal of debris. My home aquariums range in size from small fishbowls holding two or three pets to huge tanks.


10.  To give additional oxygen, ... is used in a home aquarium.
A. a natural environment
B. aquatic plants
C. an aerating device
D. a layer of sand

11. Which is not needed to stimulate a natural environment in a home aquarium?
A. Putting aquatic plants in the aquarium
B. Using a suitable aerating device
C. Keeping mollusks in the aquarium
D. Removing the debris regularly

12.  What is the above passage about?
A. The writer's home aquariums
B. A natural environment

I have. Last year, I went to Situ Cileunca. At first, I thought the place was only the same as, other places in Bandung. But I was very surprised to find that it was the most beautiful place I've ever visited.

There were fantastic meadows, a lake, and a river. The meadow was very large. In the middle of the meadow there were many cows and sheep. All the animals were fat and healthy because they could easily get some grass in that large meadow. At the edge of the meadow, there was a small river. The water in the river was very cold. But, the sound of the streaming water was good to hear, especially in the evening.

Not far away from the herd of cattle, there was a lake. The lake wasn't too big, but it was very beautiful. The water was very clear and clean. We could see many fish in the lake. The most amazing thing was the water itself. It was not cold although the weather around was extremely freezing.

tall animal. In fact, it is the tallest animal in the world.

A giraffe has a very long neck. Unfortunately, the giraffe cannot bend its neck easily. Thus, when it wants to drink water at a pool, the giraffe has to spread its front legs apart, so it can reach the water.

A giraffe feeds on plant only. Hence, it can reach the leaves on trees easily because of its height. Also, a giraffe has a very long tongue — about 0.5 metres long. The giraffe uses this long tongue skillfully to pick leaves off plants and trees.

This tall animal can protect itself very well. It has a very good sense of smell and sight. It can hear very well, too. It can also gallop very fast —at a speed of 50 km.p.h.

The giraffe's hind legs and long neck are also very useful. For example, a giraffe can kick its enemy with its hind legs or even hit out with its long neck.
