G. Read the text and choose the correct answer for questions 37-41. Have you ever wondered if the weather affects your mood and behaviour? If you have, then youre right! The way you think and feel can actually change depending on the weather. Many people complain of feeling down or having the blues in winter. This may be because there isnt as much sunshine in the winter and our brains respond to natural light. In Britain, for example, many people suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) which makes them tired and bad-tempered because there is little sunlight in the often grey and cloudy United Kingdom. Of course, we all know that a bright, sunny day can make us really cheerful and put us in a good mood. In New York City, however, the police blame hot weather for rises in crime. During heatwaves in the summer crime levels can rise as people get angry and aggressive because of the change in temperature. Some scientists have discovered that low air pressure can cause people to have problems concentrating and make them forgetful. So, if youre the kind of person thats always forgetting where you left your house keys, blame it on the weather! What about the wind? Does it drive you mad? It actually could be making you crazy! Strong and constant winds really can get to you. Children tend to be more troublesome in school and behave badly when its windy. Another result of windy weather is that there are more traffic accidents. Therefore you should also take extra care while driving. So, next time you watch the weather report it could even predict your mood for the day!

e.g. The article is about A predicting the weather. B how the weather changes how we feel. C sicknesses caused by the weather. D changes in the seasons. 37 People in Britain are said to suffer from SAD in winter because A there isnt a lot of sunshine. B there arent many clouds. C they are tired. D their brains dont respond. 38 Summer heatwaves are blamed for A people becoming forgetful. B car accidents. C crime levels getting higher. D making it difficult to concentrate.

39 If you are forgetful, it could be because A of rain. B of a heatwave. C of low pressure in the air. D of no air pressure. 40 During windy weather children might A have more traffic accidents. B be more careful at school. C be more tired. D not be well-behaved. 41 The writer suggests that when its windy A teachers should close the windows. B drivers should be more careful. C people should take care crossing the road. D children should try to be happy.
