Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions, from 1 to 5 Despite extensive regulation, the chemical by-products of industrial firms continue to pollute the environment, whether by intentional release into the air and water or by accidental escape from toxic dump sites. Too costly to prevent entirely, such pollution can be controlled naturally. Scientists have found that bacteria, fungi, and similar primitive microbes with a taste for chemicals are readily found in contaminated areas. These tiniest of creatures are capable of adapting to a poisonous environment by developing the metabolism to convert toxics into food or by producing enzymes which can break down the chemicals. The tricky part is to find a way to make the micro-organisms populous and hungry at the same time. Bioremediation is appealing to industrial companies because it is both simple and cost effective. It is cheaper than incinerating the chemicals, the only other way to eliminate them completely, and does not produce the toxic ash that burning does. Although it works best on organic compounds such as gasoline or pesticides, bioremediation will probably work on highly resistant as scientists engineer more powerful bugs.
