READING Comprehension

Read the text below, then choose the BEST answer for each item.

The water cycle is a fascinating process our Earth goes through every day. To understand how it works, we need to examine in detail how evaporation and condensation function.

We will begin with evaporation. Have you ever wondered why the mud puddles dry up after a rain? The water in the puddles absorbs heat from the sun, which causes the water to warm up and to leave the ground as vapor. This is because some of the water molecules (tiny particles), when they are heated, can move around fast enough to break away from the surface of the water. Once free from the water surface, the tiny particles rise up in the form of gas, or vapor. This gas will continually rise into the atmosphere until it cools down.

Next, let’s look at condensation. As the water vapor (or gas) rises in the atmosphere, the temperature around it becomes cooler and cooler. When the vapor rises high enough, it will cool down and lose heat. This will cause the water vapor to condense and return to its liquid state and fall down as rain. How do we get snow? The temperature of the air must be cold enough to condense the vapor and then freeze it into snow or sleet.

So, after a rain water is heated by the sun, and when enough heat is absorbed, water will evaporate and rise up into the atmosphere. In the atmosphere, the water vapor will cool down and lose heat, then condense and fall back down as rain. This process continues endlessly, and this is how the water cycle works on our Earth!

Your refrigerator is a good example of how heat is transferred. The refrigerator creates a low-temperature environment that takes in the heat from the food and drinks and then carries the heat away. This is what is known as a refrigeration cycle, and it helps to keep our food cold and fresh.
