Passages with Question Answer
I. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:

Fire may have puzzled early man but we now know that fire is the result of a chemical reaction. When the oxygen in the air combines with carbon and hydrogen in a fuel, a chemical reaction takes place. Energy in the form of heat and light is released in this process. This is what we call fire.

Questions:

1. Name the lesson.
2. What puzzled early man?
3. What is fire? See Answers



II. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:

Fuel and oxygen do not make fire by themselves, or else a newspaper or a stick lying in the open would catch fire on its own. To burn a piece of paper or wood, we heat it before it catches fire. We generally do it with a lighted match. Every fuel has a particular temperature at which it begins to burn. This temperature is called the ‘flash point’ or ‘kindling temperature’ of the fuel.

Questions:

1. What is ‘flash point’?
2. Write two uses of fire?
3. Do fuel and oxygen make fire by themselves? See Answers

III. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:

Long ago, there were no firemen. When fire broke out, everybody became a firefighter. People formed human chains (they still do if required) and passed buckets of water from a well or a pond to the blaze. Now there are laws about building construction which ensure that space is left between buildings to reduce the fire risk. Every new building, especially a public place, must ensure observance of fire prevention norms. Bands of firefighting workers with special equipment, known as fire brigades, are there to put out fires.

Questions:

1. Name the lesson.
2. When there were no firemen, how did people control the fire broke out?
3. What are fire brigades? See Answers
