SUBJECT:    ENGLISH LANGUAGE                                                     CLASS:  J.S.S 2

General Instruction:  This paper contain section A, B and C.  read the instructions carefully before you answer the questions.


Instruction:  Answer all the questions in this section.

            Mount Vesuvius, a volcano located between the ancient Italian cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, has received much attention because of it’s frequent and destructive eruptions.  The most famous of these eruptions occurred in A.D. 79.

            The volcano had been inactive for centuries.  There was little warning of the coming eruption, although one account unearthed by archaeologist says that a hard rain and strong wind had disturbed the celestial calm during the preceding night.  Early the next morning, the volcano poured a huge river of molten rock down upon Herculaneum, completely burying the city and filling the harbor with coagulated lava.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the mountain, cinders, stones and ash rained down on Pompeii.  Sparks from the burning ash ignited the combustible roof tops quickly.  Large portions of the city were destroyed in the conflagration fire. However, it was not the only cause of destruction, poisonous sulfuric gases saturated the air.  These heavy gases were not buoyant in the atmosphere and therefore sank towards the earth and suffocated people.

            Over the years, excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum have revealed a great deal about the behaviour of the volcano.  By analyzing data, much as zoologist dissect of an animal specimen, scientists have concluded that the eruption changed large portions of the area’s geography. For instance, it turned the Sarno River from it’s course and raised the level of the beach along the Bay of Naples.  Meteorologist studying these events have also concluded that Vesuvius caused a huge fidal wave that affected the world’s climate.

            In addition to making these investigations, archeologist have been able to study the skeletons of victims by using distilled water to wash away the volcanic ash.  By strengthening the brittle bone with acrylic paint, scientists have been able to examine the skeleton and draw conclusions about the diet and habits of the residents.  Finally, the excavation of both Pompeii and Herculaneum have yielded many examples of classical art such as jewelry made of bronze, which is an alloy of cooper and tin.  The eruption of Mount Vesuvius and its tragic consequences have provided everyone with a wealth of data about the effects that volcanoes can have on the surrounding area.  Today, volcanologist can locate and predict eruptions saving lives and cultures.
