Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, and are known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in nine recognized families though many are undescribed and the actual number is probably higher. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants. Bees have a long proboscis (a complex "tongue") that enables them to obtain the nectar from flowers. They have antennae almost universally made up of 13 segments in males and 12 in females, as is typical for the super family. Bees all have two pairs of wings, the hind pair being the smaller of the two; in a very few species, one sex or caste has relatively short wings that make flight difficult or impossible, but none are wingless. The smallest bee is Trigona minima, a stingless bee whose workers are about 2.1 mm (5/64") long. The largest bee in the world is Megachile pluto, a leafcutter bee whose females can attain a length of 39 mm (1.5"). Members of the family Halictidae, or sweat bees, are the most common type of bee in the Northern Hemisphere, though they are small and often mistaken for wasps or flies. 32.What is the text about? A. Describing bees in general. B. Explaining bees in Antarctica. C. Telling the habitat of the bees. D. Giving information about bees in the Northern Hemisphere. 33.What is the main idea of paragraph one? A. Bees live on every continent. B. Bees belong to flying insects. C.

It has 13 antennae. C. Its length is 39 mm. D. Its tongue is complex. 35. “They are found on every continent except Antarctica,…” The word “they” refers to … . A. ants B. bees C. insectsF D. flying insects MAKING CANDLES Making coloured and scented candles is really quick and simple. What's more, you'll save so much money. If making candle is easy, why do you ever buy one from a shop? What you need in making candle are wax, moulds, wick, dye discs, essential oils, and a double boiler. All these materials are available from craft shops. Or if you do not want to buy them, you can improvise with an old saucepan, Pyrex jug, or even a sturdy can, in a pot of water. After providing the materials, follow this procedure or instruction in making candles! First of all, melt the wax. All wax has a flash point, so to prevent it bursting into flames; you must melt it in a double boiler, with water in the bottom of the pan. Then, prepare the mould with the wick. Thread the wick through the mould and make sure that you leave a good few centimeters sticking out of the hole in the bottom. After that, add the scent. If you want a scented candle, add a few drops of essential oil to the melted wax. You can use any essential oil you like, as long as it doesn't contain water. Next step, pour the wax into the mould. Try and tip the wax into the mould quickly, all in one go, to minimize spillage and air bubbles. Then, release the bubbles and top it up. Releasing the air bubbles will eventually make the candle sink, so you will need to top it up with more melted wax. Finally, remove it from the mould. After four or five hours, the candle can be taken out of its mould. Your candle is now ready for display. Remember, you must always leave it for a day before lighting it. 36. What does paragraph one tell us about? A. The steps in making candles. B. The materials we need in making candles. C. The goal of the text in making candles. D. The way to make candles. 37. What should you do after melting the wax? A. Pour the melting wax into the mould. B. Remove the melting wax from the mould. C. Prepare the mould with the wick. D. Release the bubbles and top it up. 38. Where can you buy the materials for making candle? A. At the handicraft shop. B. At the super market. C. At the stall. D. At the craft shop. 39.“…, so to prevent it bursting into flames you …” The word “bursting” means … A. exploding B. melting C. satisfying D. becoming Read the text and answer questions 40 to 44.
