Prediction List-9: Dec-2019: Read Aloud

The Only Family
Imagine living all your life as the only family on your street. Then, one morning, you open the front door and
discover houses all around you. You see neighbors tending their gardens and children walking to school. Where
did all the people come from? What if the answer turned out to be that they had always been there—you just hadn’t seen them?

The elephant is the largest living land mammal. During evolution, its skeleton has greatly altered from the usual
mammal, design for two main reasons. One is to cope with the great weight of huge grinding cheek teeth and
elongated tusk teeth, making the skull particularly massive. The other is to support the enormous bulk of such a huge body.

The Most Measurable Benefit
Perhaps the most measurable benefit of the program has been the opportunity to meet in small groups. Something that is difficult to arrange such a desperate organization. Many officers would have to work together for thirty years but would not know other’s weaknesses and strengths.

Teenage Girls
Teenage girls are continuing to outperform boys in English while the gender gap in achievements in math and
science has almost disappeared. The figures show that last year 80% of 14-year-old girls reached at least the
expected level 5 in English, compared with 65% of boys. But in math, the girls are just 1% ahead of boys, while
in science the difference is 2%.

Black Swan
Before the discovery of Australia, people in the old world were convinced that all swans were white, an
unassailable belief as it seemed completely confirmed by empirical evidence. The sighting of the first black
swan might have been an interesting surprise for a few ornithologists, but that is not where the significance of
the story lies.

Important Values of Literature 
Certainly one of the most important values of literature is that it nourishes our emotional lives. An effective
literary work may seem to speak directly to us especially if we are ripe for it. The inner life that good writers
reveal in their characters often gives us glimpses of some portion of ourselves. We can be moved to laugh, cry,
tremble, dream, ponder, shriek, or rage with a character by simply turning the page instead of turning our lives
upside down.

Internal Combustion Engine
Internal combustion engine enables the driver to decide which source of power is appropriate for the travel
requirements of a given journey. Major US auto manufacturers are now developing feasible hybrid electric
vehicles, and some are exploring fuel-cell technology for their electric cars.
