Question 3
Read about 5 tips on a good nights sleep below. Then, answer questions (a)
(j).
How to get a good nights sleep.

Tip 1 : Most adults need on average between seven and nine hours a night,
while others need less hours of sleep.
Tip 2 : Rather than the clock striking 12, we should look to our internal
biological clocks idea of midnight. This biological midnight happens not at
12am, but somewhere between 3am and 4am. This ensures that a greater
proportion of the nights deep-sleep phases where our recovery processes
are especially effective happen before this low point.
Tip 3 : To ensure a good nights sleep, keep your bedroom temperature at
around 18C. However, use blankets or a hot water bottle as being too cold
can prevent you from getting a good nights sleep. That doesnt mean you
should shut the windows tight, though, as stale air with lower levels of
oxygen will tend to disturb the restorative effect of sleep.
Tip 4 : Being physically tired helps you to sleep well. Yet exercise serves to
stimulate the body and increase body temperature, so exercising just before
you go to bed is not a good idea. Allow your body to rest for at least two
hours after exercise before going to bed.
Tip 5 : Despite the fact that many people nod off while watching TV, the
truth is that the sound and flickering light reach the brain even after we have
fallen asleep, preventing us from achieving healthy deep sleep. Devices such
as laptops, tablets and phones are even worse. They make noises and give
off light and youre tempted to check them.

QUESTION 4
Read the text below

Hi, I am Nursarah. I have several friends at school . Some are my


schoolmates and some are my classmates . However the best among them is
Arrisa, who is my classmate.
Arissa is a fair, pretty girl with dimpled cheeks and comes from a respectable
family. She is of my age but is much taller than I am. She and I first met at
kindergarten and we became great friends. She is kind, jolly and helpful. We
are classmates again this year and we go to school together each morning.
Arissa is very neat and clean in her dress. She likes wearing a white blouse, a
long skirt and black shoes. Her clothes are always costly but never showy.
Her dress gives her a respectable look. It shows that she is not foppish at all.
Arissa likes to joke and play games. She lives near my house. In the
evenings, we usually meet at my house. We sit in the garden and read story
books. Sometimes, when my parents go out in the evening, she comes over
to keep me company and we watch television together. That way I do not feel
lonely.
My best friend is very good in her lessons especially at Mathematics. She
never neglects her studies. In the last examination she stood second in the
class but was the best scorer in English and Mathematics. So, whenever I find
difficulties in my Mathematics homework, I would ask her to help me.
Arissa is active and smart. She is good at both studies and games.No wonder
she is loved by all the teachers. She is frank and honest. She also helps her
parents in the house with the chores. She never wastes her time at home or
school.
Arissa is a girl of excellent moral character. She is expected to be a great
lady in the years to come. All her good qualities have attracted me. I hope
Arissa and I will be in the same class again next year. I like her very much
and she is my best friend.
