Dear Future Generations,
I think I speak for the rest of us when I say
Sorry, sorry we left you with our mess of a planet
Sorry that we were too caught up in our own doings to do something
Sorry we listened to people who made excuses
To do nothing
I hope you forgive us
We just didn’t realize how special the earth was
like a marriage gone wrong
We didn’t know what we had until it was gone
So I’m sorry, I’m sorry that we put profit above people
Greed over need, the rule of gold above the golden rule
I’m sorry we used nature as a credit card with no spending limit
Overdrafting animals to extinction
Stealing your chance to ever see their uniqueness
Or become friends with them
Sorry we poisoned the oceans so much that you can’t even swim in them
But most of all, I’m sorry about our mindset
’cause we had the nerve to call this destruction
Write true or false. (5×1=5)

Read the following text and answer the following questions.
The sound coming from Alper’s room was absolutely awful…His mum opened the door. “Son, I’ve got a headache. Can you give it a rest?” “But I’m practicing the guitar.” “Practicing? Sometimes you hit the strings and sometimes you slap the guitar… And your mouth is open all the time. And you keep shouting. That’s not singing! We send you to a guitar course but it’s a waste of time and money!”
“Didn’t they give you songs you’re supposed to practice with? You should learn how to play these first until you get them right.” “Oh, I do play those songs sometimes. They’re really boring though. Anyway, it hurts my fingers when I play the strings according to the rules, they
teach us at the course. I play with my heart. Not according to rules… It’s a lot more fun that way”
“Well I hope your dad doesn’t hear that after spending all this money. It’s disturbing the neighbours. Last night, Mr. Arif from upstairs was making a fuss. He said that your singing sounded as if you had fallen into a pot of boiling water!
It had all started with Alper’s friend, Serkan. When Serkan’s father had bought him a guitar, Alper wanted one as well…He began to dream of having a classical guitar. Alper nagged his father to buy him a guitar even though his father couldn’t really afford it. In the end, Alper’s father took out an advance on his salary to buy his son the guitar. Alper was delighted…He spent days and days writing lyrics…The light in the air… cats…birds…sweet breezes…Alper wrote about everything! But…Alper had no music for his words. He couldn’t write music. He didn’t know any notes at all.
His mum’s words really depressed him. At first he thought that he only needed to touch the guitar and beautiful music would just come out on its own. But instead it was only practice, practice, practice. Not real music. How many more times would he have to take lessons just to play Baris Manco’s ‘Domates, Biber, Patlıcan’? He couldn’t stand this…It was taking such a long time to learn how to play his own music!
Answer the following questions. (4×1.5 =6)
Give a suitable title to the story.
Why was Alper’s mother annoyed with him?
Who complained about Arif’s guitar practice? And why?
How did Alper’s father buy him a guitar?

Crossing the Bar
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Everything in the universe has its uses and abuses. The same applies to science and people have different opinion about scientific inventions. Science is responsible for all progress, prosperity and comfort in human life, but it is also responsible for the chief cause of the suffering of humanity today.
Science has made man’s life happier and more comfortable. Agriculture, business, transport, communication, medicine and many more are the wonders of science. It has discovered electricity, coal, petroleum, natural gas, etc. Science has given man the means of travelling like cars, trains, aeroplanes, ships, etc. and man has even travelled to the moon.
Moreover, science has enabled people to find essential facts about earth, satellites, planets and stars. The computer, television, video, radio, internet, etc. have enabled man to get knowledge about various things. We have become scientifically more advanced from our ancestors. This is because of rapid progress in science and technology.
However, science is also destructive for humankind. It has also led to the discovery of disastrous things like bomb, missiles and other fatal weapons. If science is misused it can cause ruin of mankind and can threaten to bring about extinction of the human race.
To sum up, science is like a knife. A knife can be used to cut vegetables. The same knife can also be used as a deadly weapon. In the same way science can be used as a tool for the development, but it can be disastrous when it is in wrong hands or is abused.
Write ‘True’ for the true statements and ‘False’ for the false ones. [5 × 1 Ö 5]
The things available in the universe have no abuses.

Where is this deliverance to be found?
Our master himself has joyfully taken upon him the bonds of creation;

I’m delighted to have the honour of opening this international conference on the Joint Programming Initiative “A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life”. It’s a topic that’s never out of the media, with endless variations on whether carbs, fat, sugar or protein are good or bad, or reports on the latest wonder-food that will stop cancer in its tracks or help us live longer.
We are now relying on science and innovation to help us tackle the new public health challenge that is diet and lifestyle-related diseases such as overweight and obesity – sometimes described as the greatest public health challenge of our times. It’s a challenge that all member states are facing to different degrees, so it makes perfect sense both scientifically and economically – to pool our knowledge together. That’s why this Joint Programming Initiative is so important. When Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life was launched, the Council of the European Union noted that in the last three decades the levels of overweight and obesity in the EU have risen dramatically, particularly among children, and that the trend of poor diet and low physical activity is getting even worse.
Many chronic conditions such as cancer, neurological and mental disorders, cardiovascular diseases, obesity and type 2 diabetes can be prevented or modified through better lifestyles and healthier diets. Different projects are delivering insights such as how diabetes and obesity can be prevented, how they progress, how early diagnosis can improve quality of life, and how to select the best treatments. But despite the improvements, much more needs to be done, particularly because of the trans-generational effects of obesity and diabetes. Horizon 2020, Europe’s 80-billion-euro research and innovation programme, is designed to tackle society’s biggest challenges.
The two things that are most relevant to ‘A Healthy Diet for A Healthy Life’ are food safety and the bio-economy, and health, demographic change and wellbeing. For the next seven years (2014-2020), these challenges will fund the very best research on nutrition, health, diet-related disease and ageing and translate the knowledge gained into innovative and effective products, treatments, services and strategies to benefit all patients, and to prevent many people from developing disease in the first place.
Match the descriptions in column ‘A’ with the correct words in column ‘B’. One word does not have a match. (5×1=5)

|a. relating to the study of the nervous system||i. diagnosis|

The train was moving fast. Outside the window, the freezing cold of winter ruled. The compartment was filled with cold, bored passengers.
Suddenly, a little boy pushed his way through the discourteous grown-up legs. His father chose to stay by the door behind us. The train continued to wobble its way down into a tunnel. Then something very strange happened. The little boy slid down from his seat and put his hand on my knee. For a moment, I thought that he wanted to pass me and return to his father. But he leaned forward and stretched his head up towards mine. He wanted to say something to me. I thought, so I bowed my head to receive the message. Wrong again! What I received was a loud kiss on the cheek.
The boy calmly returned to his seat, leaned back, and continued casually looking out the window. I was shocked. What just happened? A kid kissing cactus-like creatures like us? Soon enough, all of my neighbors were duly kissed. Nervous and bewildered, we grinned at the father. When he saw our questioning glances as he got ready for his stop, he offered a clue. “He’s so happy to be alive,” the father said. “He’s been very sick.” Father and son disappeared into the crowd moving toward the exit. The doors closed, and the train rumbled on.
On my cheek, I can still feel the child’s kiss – a kiss that has triggered some soul-searching inside me. How many grown-ups go around kissing each other from the sheer joy of being alive? How many even give much thought to the privilege of living?
The little kisser had taught us a sweet but serious lesson: Be careful you don’t let yourself die before your heart stops!
Fill in the blanks with an appropriate word(s) from the passage: 5×1=5
