1. When one hears the term “reality” applied to a television show, one might expect that the events occurred naturally or, at the least, were not scripted, but this is not always the case. Many reality shows occur in unreal environments, like rented mansions occupied by film crews. These living environments do not reflect what most people understand to be “reality.” Worse, there have been accusations that events not captured on film were later restaged by producers. Worse still, some involved in the production of “reality” television claim that the participants were urged to act out story lines premeditated by producers. With such accusations floating around, it’s no wonder many people take reality TV to be about as real as the sitcom.

Select one of the following:

  • A. It is fun to watch reality shows like Pinoy Big Brother.

  • B. Reality TV shows are unrealistic.

  • C. Reality TV shows earn a lot of money from their sponsors.

There are many types of lethal venom in the animal kingdom, but perhaps no stranger carrier than the platypus. The platypus is one of few venomous mammals. Males carry a venom cocktail in their ankle spurs that paralyzes victims with excruciating pain. Stranger still, the platypus is the only mammal that uses electroreception. What this means is that the platypus uses its bill to sense the electricity produced by the muscular movements of its prey. The platypus neither sees, hears, nor smells its prey while hunting but, rather, pursues it through electroreception. Perhaps most odd, the platypus is the only mammal that lays eggs rather than giving birth to live young. The platypus is an odd creature indeed.

Which is the best summary for this passage?

Select one of the following:

  • A. The platypus is a unique mammal just like the porcupine.

  • B. The platypus is a strange mammal because it has venom and lays eggs. It also its beak to sense prey

  • C. The platypus is a mammal with special abilities like it is great in swimming.
