Revision Question Bank (English)

PODAR INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL (CBSE)
Question Bank Cycle Test – 2 (2016-17)
Std: III
Subject: English
Section A (Reading Comprehension)
Q. I Read the following passage carefully.
We  use  our  teeth  to  cut  up  and  chew  our  food.  Our  teeth
also help us to speak. They help us to form certain sounds.
We can’t speak properly if we have no teeth in our mouth.
Most babies are born without teeth. When the baby is about
six  months  old,  the  first  tooth  (called  milk  tooth)  begins  to
grow.  By  the  age  of  two  and  a  half,  the  child  has  all  the
twenty milk teeth (ten in each jaw).
As  the  child  grows,  these  milk  teeth  become  loose  and  fall  out.  They  are replaced by a set of permanent teeth. In all, there are thirty – two teeth, sixteen in the lower jaw and sixteen in the upper jaw.
Each tooth is divided into two parts. The part of tooth inside the gum is the root.
The part that can be seen in the mouth is the crown. The crown is covered with a very hard substance called enamel.
The most common cause of toothache is decay. If the teeth and the gums are not properly cleaned, tiny pieces of food are left on them. Germs begin to grow from these particles. The sugar in our food acts with these germs and acids are formed.  These  acids  cause  the  enamel  to  rot.  When  the  enamel  is  gone,  the
tooth can’t live long.
You can’t eat and chew your food well if you don’t have strong teeth. Therefore, you must take care of your teeth. Brush your teeth daily. Go to the dentist too.
Visit the dentist about twice a year if there seems to be nothing wrong.

1) Our teeth help us to ________.
(a) listen

(b) twice
(c) thrice
7) Brush your teeth ________.
