Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions. 

The La Tomatina is a festival held on a Wednesday towards the end of August in the town of Bunol in the Valencia region in Spain. The weeklong festival includes music, parades, dancing, and fireworks.

About 30,000 people come to the tomato fight, while Bunol's population is only 9,000. There are not many accommodations for people who come to La Tomatina, so many participants stay in Valencia and travel by bus or train to Bunol, about 38 km outside the city.

Many trucks transport tomatoes into the center of the town, Plaza del Pueblo. The tomatoes come from Extremadura, where they are less expensive. The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of the cannon, and the chaos begins. Once it begins, the battle is generally every man for himself. People who partake in this event are strongly encouraged to wear protective safety goggles and gloves. In addition, they must squash the tomatoes before throwing for safety precautions. Another rule is that no one is allowed to bring into this fight anything that may lead to a more serious fight, such as a glass bottle. People must also stay away from trucks and must not out someone else's clothing. Somewhere between an hour and two hours, the fighting ends and the cannon is fired once more to signal the end. At this point, no more tomatoes can be thrown. The cleaning process involves the use of fire trucks to spray down the streets, with water provided from a Roman waterway. People find water to wash, most likely at the Bunol River.

Read the passage below carefully and choose the best option.

On average, more than 100,000 wildfires, also called wildland fires or forest fires, destroy two million hectares of land in the U.S. every year. A wildfire moves at speeds of about 20 kilometers an hour and can last for weeks, consuming everything - trees, brush, homes, and humans - in its path.

There are three conditions for a wildfire to burn: fuel, oxygen, and a heat source. Fuel includes trees, grasses, bushes, and even homes. Oxygen is necessary for a fire to burn. Heat sources help start the wildfire. Although most wildfires are started by people, natural factors like lightning, hot winds and even the sun can all provide enough heat to start a wildfire.

Firefighters fight wildfires by removing the conditions for a wildfire to burn. Traditional method include using water and fire retardants to put out the fires. Firefighters also fight wildfires with “controlled burning”. These controlled forest fires remove small trees, bushes, and ground litter from a forest. This will deprive a wildfire of fuel and prevent future forest fires.

Although often harmful and destructive to humans, wildfires play an important role in nature. Even healthy forests contain dead trees and decaying plant matter. When a fire turns them to ashes, nutrients return to the soil. They also remove sick plants and harmful insects from a forest. And by burning through thick leaves and branches, wildfires allow sunlight to reach the forest floor, making it possible for a new generation of trees to grow.
