·         Prepare your desired waffle batter.
·         Preheat the waffle maker. Set the waffle maker onto a flat, heat-safe surface and plug it in.
·         Grease the waffle maker plates, if needed. You can use cooking spray, melted butter, or oil. This will prevent the batter from sticking and makes cleaning up easier.
·         Pour the batter in a spiral. Measure out about ¾ cup (180 milliliters) of batter. Pour it onto the plate in a spiral, starting from the outside edges.
·         Close the lid and allow the batter to cook. As your waffle cooks, it will release steam. Wait until the steam stops coming out before checking on the waffle for doneness.
·         Remove the waffle using a plastic, rubber, or silicone utensil. Do not use any metal utensils, as they may scratch the surface.

The Monkey and the Cat

Once upon a time a Cat and a Monkey lived as pets in the same house. They were great friends and were constantly in all sorts of mischief together. What they seem to think of more than anything else was to get something to eat, and it did not matter much to them how they got it.
One day they were sitting by the fire, watching some chestnuts roasting on the hearth. How to get them was the question.
“I would gladly get them,” said the cunning Monkey, “but you are much more skillful at such things than I am. Pull them out and I’ll divide them between us.”
Pussy stretched out her paw very carefully, pushed aside some of the cinders, and drew back her paw very quickly. Then she tried it again, this time pulling a chestnut half out of the fire. A third time and she drew out the chestnut. This performance she went through several times, each time singeing her paw severely. As fast as she pulled the chestnut out of the fire, the Monkey ate them up.

The following text is for questions 35 and  36.
Lightning is a powerful burst of electricity that happens very quickly during a thunderstorm. Lightning is caused by an electrical charge in the atmosphere that is unbalanced. The movement of rain and ice inside a thundercloud creates an electrical charge, with the negative charge (electrons) forming at the bottom of the cloud and the positive charge (protons) forming at the top. Opposites attract so the negative charge at the bottom of the cloud seeks out a positive charge to connect with.
Lightning is usually produced by cumulonimbus lightning that are very tall and dense. Lightning can occur inside lightning, between lightning and from lightning to the ground. Around one quarter of lightning is from cloud to ground. There are bolts of lightning striking somewhere on Earth every second. Most lightning occurs over land rather than oceans, with around 70% of it occurring in the Tropics. Lightning strikes usually last around 1 or 2 microseconds. Lightning contains millions of volts of electricity. The average temperature of lightning is around 20,000oC (36,000oF).
When lightning strikes the ground, it seeks out the shortest route to something with a positive charge, this might be a tree, a tall building or if they are very unlucky, a person. Thousands of people are struck by lightning every year. Direct lightning strikes are usually fatal. Lightning rods (also called conductors) are metal rods or similar objects that divert lightning safely to the ground, they can often be seen at the top of tall buildings.
Thunder is the sound caused by lightning can also occur during volcanic eruptions, dust storms, snow storms, forest fires and tornados. The study of lightning is known as pulmonology while astraphobia is the fear of thunder and lightning.
