Tattoos are a very old form of art all around the world. For example, some mummies from ancient Egypt had tattoos; Otzi, a man found who lived more than 5000 years ago and was found in the Italian Alps, had more than sixty tattoos; and Romans had tattoos too.
Different cultures use tattoos for different reasons. Experts think tattoos helped ancient Egyptian women with pregnancy and childbirth. Otzi's tattoos protected against illness. However, only criminals and prisoners in Rome had tattoos, so the reason was very negative. These days, people get tattoos for personal reasons. Some people get tattoos for religious reasons, other people get tattoos with the names or pictures of someone they love. And some people get tattoos just because they look cool.

Read the passage below and answer the questions 23-26.
There is bad news for banana lovers. The most common banana in the world is in danger of becoming extinct. It is called the Cavendish banana and people eat it all over the world. A fungus called Tropical Race 4 (TP4) is killing millions of banana plants. The fungus blocks small tubes that absorb water inside the plant. This means the plant cannot get the water it needs and so it dies. Scientists first discovered TP4 in Malaysia in 1990. It quickly spread to other parts of South-East Asia and then to Australia and Africa. TP4 is spread in dirt that is carried by the wind, water, cars and even people's boots. A tiny amount of TP4 can spread across large areas very quickly. Some scientists believe TP4 could kill the banana industry.
This is not the first time that a variety of banana has become extinct. Before we started eating the Cavendish banana, we ate a variety called the Gros Michel. Fifty years ago, the Gros Michel banana was the main banana grown around the world. However, it was hit by a fungus called Panama Disease. The Gros Michel banana became extinct in 1965 and banana growers switched to the Cavendish banana. The problem for the banana industry is that even if they burn all their banana plants, the fungus stays in the soil. This means new plants cannot be grown. Scientists say one option is genetically modified (GM) bananas that are resistant to diseases like TP4 and Panama Disease.
23. Which of the following is NOT the carrier of TP4? A. people B. birds C vehicles D wind
24. What was the name of the banana that was extinct? A. TP4 B. The Gros Michel C. Cavendish D. GM
25. What is TRUE of the Gros Michel banana based on the passage above?
A. It was not consumed fifty years back. B. It is still consumed in some parts of the world. C. It’s half a century since it became extinct. D. People never liked that type of bananas.
26. From the scientists’ point of view, one option is to move to GM bananas because …
A. they are cheaper. B. they are easier to grow. C. they are resistant to the diseases mentioned in the passage. D. they are more productive than natural ones.
