    Q. The bowling alley was crowded with people. The rumble of bowling balls down the polished wooden alleys—followed by the crash of pins—resulted in screams of delight or moans of disappointment throughout the large room. A group of teenagers gathered near one of the doorways, laughing loudly at their friends as they bowled. Near the far end of the area, a group of children gathered around a table belting out “Happy Birthday” to a friend.

    Q. The skilled violin player’s long, slender fingers danced upon the strings as one hand slowly drew the bow across the instrument. The stage lights reflected off the highly polished, varnished surface of the violin, giving it a glow. The musician—a young woman dressed in a long, blue satin gown—played with her eyes closed. Her head was tilted slightly to support the violin beneath her chin, and her long, auburn hair flowed loosely to her shoulders.

  • Question 7
    45 seconds
    Q. According to the Global Hunger Index, people in southeast Asia (specifically India) are most susceptible to hunger. India is the second most populous nation in the world. About one third of people living in India live in poverty and are unable to afford food, even when it is available. In addition, farming in India is done primarily by small farmers whose crops can be devastated by a single weather event, which impacts the food available to thousands of people. Finally, there are few social services in place to help those who cannot afford or access food. So, if someone cannot afford food, there are very few charities or government services who can help them.

    Q. Scientists and doctors have studied the relationship between people and dogs for many years and come to the conclusion that owning a dog is, overall, very good for a human’s health. First, taking care of a dog gives people a purpose. For older or depressed people who might not have jobs or classes to attend, having a reason to get up and get going every morning is very helpful. In addition, dogs are affectionate and attentive creatures, which can help diminish feelings of loneliness or isolation.

    Q. While sports organizations like Little League are considered part of growing up in the United States, some families are choosing not to participate in leagues outside of school. Some families believe that aggressive coaches and parents make the leagues less enjoyable for children. To address this growing problem, one league, the Optimists Baseball Club has established a contract for parents, players, and coaches. Yelling on or off the field is not only discouraged but will result in being barred from practices and games.
