It was an awful sound. I was pushed forward in my seat and felt the straps pulling me back. I looked around and saw that our car was off the road, and we were crunched up against a telephone pole. There was no possible way to avoid the accident, but I knew that our seat belts had saved our lives.

Read the passage.
Friday was going to be a big day! It was the championship game of the season in soccer, and Joe was the team captain. He wanted to lead his team to their first district championship in the history of their school. They only had enough players to use 3 substitutes, so they always had to be in excellent shape in order to play almost the entire games and run at their fastest speeds the whole time. Alex was one of their fastest players, and Joe knew that without Alex, it was be
difficult to win on Friday. The school held a huge pep rally to encourage the team and cheer them on that morning. The cheerleaders were planning a special presentation during half time, and it seemed that the entire community was going to be at the game to witness the historic victory. The game was supposed to start at 5:00 that evening, so Joe asked all the players to meet in the locker rooms at 3:30 to suit up and have a quick warm up before the game. Excitement and tension were in the in air, and Joe was feeling both confident and nervous. He didn’t want to let everyone down. As he walked up to the locker rooms to get ready for all the other players to arrive, he saw the coach standing at the door. He looked very upset and told Joe that three of the players had come down with the flu, and they would be unable to play in the game today. They didn’t have to forfeit the game as long as the rest of the players were still willing to play, but this would mean they would have to stay in the whole time and have no substitutes.

At the very time of the humiliation at Fort Duquesne—when George Washington, Daniel Boone, and General Edward Braddock were defeated by French and Indian foes—a Mohawk Indian was readying himself for a warriors’ dance. The Mohawk—name Warraghiyagey (war-rag-ee- YAH-gay)—painted bright designs on his naked chest, stepped into a deerskin kilt adorned with porcupine quills, and donned a cap topped with a single eagle feather. Tied to his wrists and
ankles were dried deer’s hoofs that rattled as he moved. He ate of ceremonial dog meat and threw a red-painted hatchet onto a war post. Soon he would lead the strenuous dance.

Question 13 of 15
Read the passage.
Plants need nutrients to make their food and get energy. Some plants that grow in poor soil get the nutrients they need by “eating” animals. A sweet-smelling liquid attracts insects to a pitcher plant. Once an insect enters the tube-shaped leaf of the plant, hairs that point downward stop it from leaving. The insect falls into the pool of liquid inside the leaf. The liquid dissolves the insect, and the plant uses the nutrients.Copyright Info: Harcourt, Inc. 2002.
