which is used to make carvings, jewelry and other products although it is illegal to sell ivory since

illegal ivory trade,” Ginette Hemley, Fund’s vice president for species conservation, told The

Read the passage and choose the correct answers:
Scientists often divide resources into two groups: renewable and non– renewable. When a
resource is used, it takes some times to replace it. If the resource can be replaced quickly and easily, it
is called renewable. If it cannot be replaced quickly and easily, it is non-renewable. All fossil fuels are
non-renewable resources. Solar energy, air, and water are usually called renewable because there is an
unlimited supply.
However, this definition may change if people are not careful with these resources. The amount
of solar energy that reaches the earth depends on the atmosphere. If the atmosphere is polluted, the

13

solar energy that reaches the earth may be dangerous. If humans continue to pollute the air, it will not
contain the correct amounts of these gases.
Many resources are limited and non- renewable, and many are in danger of pollution. As a
consequence, resources must be conserved and the environment protected. Conservation must become
an important part of everyone’s life.
