There are several points to remember when buying food. First of all, larger shops sell goods at lower prices than smaller shops. As most people know, supermarkets often sell their own brands of many products. ‘Own brands’ are, on average, cheaper than the brands of leading manufacturers. For example, on items such as peas, beans, soap and soap powder, own brands can be up to 15 percent cheaper. On some lines, such as washing-up liquid, the savings can be even greater. There is no reason to suppose that own brand ones are inferior. They are commonly produced in the same place as the branded ones . Often the difference is the packaging and the price.

(3)

After she won the money some of her friends at university thought that maybe she had made the wrong decision. 'Some people said I should have saved it for a deposit to buy a house or to pay back my students loan.' Lydia said. 'That really annoyed me. Students  eem to live in an unreal world, where they always complain about being poor. But there's an enormous difference between our situation and people who have absolutely no money.'

For years, it has been assumed that obesity is the result of ‘too much food and too little exercise’. While this maxim is largely correct, the etiology of obesity can be much more complex. There is a well-documented familial tendency, but whether this is of environmental or genetic origin is unclear. Studies of twins separated at birth and living apart provide strong evidence for a substantial genetic influence. Children of overweight parents, when adopted by lean families, have a greater tendency to become obese than do adoptee from nonobese natural parents. ‘Energy efficiency’ may contribute to obesity; with reserves of fat deposits readilyavailable to metabolize in the obese, a given amount of activity requires a smaller expenditure of energy. This theory has been invoked by those who complain that they ‘gain weight whether they eat or not’, and indeed there is evidence of differences in energy efficiency among individuals. Similarly, obesity has been attributed to abnormally low basal metabolic rates (BMRs) since obese individuals do show lower BMRs. However, this fact is due to an artifact of BMR measurement; a larger proportion of the total fat mass of an obese person is inert,low-metabolizing fat, a fact that makes BMR calculations lower.

27) The main idea of this passage is __________.

a) to discredit the idea that there is a greater degree of energy efficiency in the obese.

b) that the environmental and the genetic causes of obesity are more or less the same.

c) To establish that the factors behind obesity are highly complex and even contradictory.

d) That obesity is a serious health hazard and that a great deal more research into the treatment of it is required.

28) What does the word ‘assume’ mean?

a) suppose b)satisfy c) affirm d) promise

29) Find the word in the paragraph which means ‘provide, supply’.

a) gain b) contribute c) metabolize d) require

30) Find the word in the paragraph which means ‘proof, verification’.

a) expenditure b) artifact c) lean d) evidence
