The answer for
question 7 b).

Page | 29

The answer :

a) Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants and greenhouse
gases collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off
the earth’s surface. Normally, this radiation would escape into space—but these pollutants,
which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to
get hotter. That's what's known as the greenhouse effect.

b) The effect of global warming are:
- Melting glaciers, early snowmelt, and severe droughts will cause more dramatic water
shortages and increase the risk of wildfires in the American West.
- Rising sea levels will lead to coastal flooding on the Eastern Seaboard, especially in Florida,
and in other areas such as the Gulf of Mexico.
- Forests, farms, and cities will face troublesome new pests, heat waves, heavy downpours,
and increased flooding. All those factors will damage or destroy agriculture and fisheries.
- Allergies, asthma, and infectious disease outbreaks will become more common due to
increased growth of pollen-producing ragweed, higher levels of air pollution, and the spread
of conditions favorable to pathogens and mosquitoes.

The answer for
question 9 b).

Page | 38

The answer :
a) Euthanasia refers to deliberately ending someone’s life, usually to relieve suffering. Doctors
sometimes perform euthanasia when it’s requested by people who have a terminal illness and
are in a lot of pain.
It’s a complex process and involves weighing many factors. Local laws, someone’s physical
and mental health, and their personal beliefs and wishes all play a role.
b) When most people think of euthanasia, they think of a doctor directly ending someone’s life.
This is known as active euthanasia. Purposely giving someone a lethal dose of a sedative is
considered active euthanasia.
Passive euthanasia is sometimes described as withholding or limiting life-sustaining
treatments so that a person passes more quickly. A doctor may also prescribe increasingly
high doses of pain-killing medication. Overtime, the doses may become toxic.
