Read the following passage and answer the question blow.Everyone must play a part in protecting the environment. There are many things you can do on your own every day to help save the planet. Here are some suggestions. Really, the best thing we can do for the planet is to use less of it. Our consumer society is mainly responsible for the environmental crisis. Here are some questions you can ask yourself before buying something, “Do I really need this?”  or “Is there another product which would do the same thing but more sustainable?” Or ask the question, “Will this last a long time?” some other questions may be, “Do I know how this item made, how it will be used and how it will be disposed of?” What do you think of using your own ceramic cup or mug at your school or local club? It means there are no plastic cups to throw away. You can wash it and reuse it every day. Unfortunately, we are encouraged to bay a new “improve” item if the one we have can be repaired or reused. When we buy things, we should buy items which are durable; we should use them properly, and have them repaired when necessary. if we practice this, many things can not only last a life-time, but also be passed on to future. However, if something is truly unusable for its original purposes, try to be more creative and thing of how else it might be used. When you’re done with it, thing of whether someone else might be able to use it. You can donate some of the things to the poor. You may also sell some of your used items.

Read then following passage and answer the questions no.4-5 
William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 (baptized) -23 April 1616) was an English playwright, actor and poet also known as the “Bard of Avon” and often called England’s national poet. Born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England he was an important member of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men company of theatrical players from roughly 1594 onward. Written records give little indication of the way in which Shakespeare’s professional life molded his artistry. All that can be deduced is that, in his 20 years as playwright, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict. Known throughout the world, the works of William Shakespeare have been performed in countless hamlets, villages, cities and metropolises for more than 400 years. And yet, the personal history of William Shakespeare is somewhat a mystery. There are two primary sources that provide historians with a basic outline of his life. Our source is his work- the plays, poems and sonnets – and the other is official documentation such as church and court records. However, these only provide little on the person who experienced those events.
