You have 10 minutes to finish this task. Your response will be judged on the quality of your writing and on how well your response presents the key points in the passage.

1.Eleven countries bordering the Indian Ocean—all relatively poor and vulnerable—suffered devastation after tsunami hit Indian ocean. Hardest hit were Indonesia , Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and the Maldives. The catastrophic damage included the destruction of entire cities, the contamination of farmland and forests, and the depletion of fishing stocks. Some areas faced starvation and increased susceptibility to disease. Even countries with relatively low death tolls suffered enormous damage—the Maldives, for example, had less than 100 deaths, yet the tsunami left 14 of the archipelago’s islands uninhabitable, requiring its inhabitants to be permanently evacuated, and another 79 islands without safe drinking water.

2.Fats are a group of chemical compounds that contain fatty acids. Energy is stored in the body mostly in the form of fat. Fat is needed in the diet to supply essential fatty acids, substances essential for growth but not produced by the body itself.

There are three main types of fatty acids: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. All fatty acids are molecules composed mostly of carbon and hydrogen atoms. A saturated fatty acid has the maximum possible number of hydrogen atoms attached to every carbon atom. It is therefore said to be “saturated” with hydrogen atoms.

3.Some people don’t want to eat food that has been sprayed with pesticides. Nor do they want genetically modified food . What’s the alternative? Organic food. For a food to be certified as organic by the government, it must be grown without artificial pesticides and fertilizers. Milk, meat, poultry and eggs are designated as organic if they are not treated with hormones or antibiotics. (Hormones make animals larger; antibiotics keep them disease-free.) In addition, food can’t be labeled organic if it is genetically altered or irradiated (processed with radiation to kill harmful germs). Organic foods are often more expensive than regular foods, but some people think the more natural products are worth the extra money.

4.For thousands of years, farmers have improved their crops by crossbreeding plants that have good traits. They take pollen from one plant and add it to the flowers of another plant to produce a plant with the traits they want. But cross-breeding is slow and unreliable.

Scientists say the new techniques have created crops that are pest-proof, disease resistant and more nutritious. For example, a rice has been modified so it gets an extra boost of vitamin A from a daffodil gene. The rice was made for those who don’t get enough vitamin A in their diet.

Not everybody thinks bioengineering is a good idea. Many people say these genetically modified, or GM, foods may end up harming the environment and humans. They fear that plants with new genes forced into them will accidentally crossbreed with wild plants and create pesticide-resistant superweeds. They also say GM foods could carry genes that trigger allergies or other side effects.

So far, GM foods haven’t harmed anyone. Most genetic researchers believe that if troubles do crop up, they will be manageable.

  1. After tsunami in Indian Ocean, the bordering countries of this ocean got damaged extremely which included destruction of whole cities, forests or might be the islands left for uninhabitable.

  2. After tsunami hit Indian ocean and it’s bordering countries , it caused severe damage to entire cities, farmland and forest, as some areas face starvation, lack of water and increased susceptibility to many diseases and leaving many islands uninhabitable.

  3. The tsunami that hit the eleven countries bordering Indian Ocean brought an enormous damage especially to Madives and left the island uninhabitable place for human.

  4. 1. The Tsunami attacked countries bordering the Indian Ocean, including India and Thailand, results cities destruction, land and water contamination, and residents’ permanent evacuation.
    2. Fat is essential in daily diet, since fatty acid contains plenty of hydrogen and carbon atoms especially saturated fatty acid.
    3. Fertilizers, artificial pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and altered process are forbidden in organic foods, therefore organic foods are more expensive but with great demands.
    4. People think GM foods, which are created by using new techniques instead of cross-breeding, may bring side effects to environment and human, though scientists claimed that GM foods are in control.

  5. ofter tsunami 11 country’s facing food problem,by using organic food to face this problem and by improving bio engineering is a good idea to face this problem.

  6. The Tsunami caused severe damage to several countries surrounding the Indian Ocean and in particular Maldives effected significantly.

  7. Food is considered as organic if it is grown without artificial pesticides,hormones,antibiotics and this organic food is more expensive than regular food.

  8. 2.Fatty acid is different chemical compound of fat,all fatty acid is made from maximum binding of carbon and hydrogen atom known as “saturated” fatty acid;which is responsible for storing energy and essential substance for growth.

  9. Tsunami caused devastation to coastal countries beside Indian Ocean, including damage to public property, evacuation of inhabitants and contamination of potable water.

    Different types of fats in foods are required not only for growth of body but also for energy.

    Some people prefer to consume organic foods which are grown in natural environment, free from agricultural toxic and genetic engineering with relatively high price.

    Genetic researches modified some crops with the help of bio engineering, though slow and unreliable, which are rich in vitamins and without any known harm.

  10. 1. Author is talking about aftermath of tsunami in Indian ocean in which Indonesia was hit hardest and evacuation of many islands due to damage of natural resources needed for living.

    2. Author is talking about fat acids influence in our body and it’s chemical formation as well as it’s types.

    3. Author wants to describe significance of organic food in human life and trying to defer it with food synthesized with pesticides as people prefer organic food over altered food.

    4. Author is describing significance of genetically modified plants that may impact negatively on humans and environment with many unknown diseases though researchers thinks they can manage this.

  11. The effects of disastrous tsunami strike in Indian ocean led to damaging numerous countries such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand, generating destruction of cities, evacuation of residents, contamination of soil and drinking water and , in some extreme situation, emergence of illnesses .

  12. There are three types of fatty acids which goes into fats composition, who are based on a carbon -hydrogen chemical structure and being saturated or unsaturated function to the number of hydrogen atoms linked by each carbon atom.
