  • 1. Reading Comprehension – POST-MORTEMT2W1-4 Short Paragraph Comprehension T2W1.2011 The Arabian Sea Prepared by Yeo Yam Hwee
  • 2. The Arabian Sea• The Lakshadweep Islands lie in the Arabian Sea, off the coast of India, near Mumbai. What pirate fantasies a person could spin there among the coral reefs, swaying palms and sugary beaches. Lately, that fantasy has become grim reality, as Somali pirates search ever more distant waters for vulnerable vessels. With an international naval task force patrolling the sea off the Horn of Africa, the pirates have extended their range as far south as Madagascar and as far east as the islands off India. The latest band of suspected pirates was captured on 10 February and loaded onto an Indian coast-guard vessel. Not a “Yo ho ho” to be heard – but as long as Somalia is in chaos, there will be no shortage of buccaneers. – David Von Drehle Reading Paragraph
  • 3. The Lakshadweep Islandsand how close they are tothe Indian subcontinent.
  • 4. 1. Write down a word found in the paragraph which has the opposite meaning of the word, “fantasy”? The Lakshadweep Islands lie in the Arabian Sea, off the coast of India, near Mumbai. What pirate fantasies a person could spin there among the coral reefs, swaying palms and sugary beaches. Lately, that fantasy has become grim reality, as Somali pirates search ever more distant waters for vulnerable vessels. The word is “reality”.
  • 5. 2. What kind of policing force do you expect to see in “an international naval task force” guarding the seas? With an international naval task force patrolling the sea off the Horn of Africa, the pirates have extended their range as far south as Madagascar and as far east as the islands off India. I expect to see a policing force making up of officers coming from many different countries co-operating in guarding the seas.
  • 6. 3. Write down another word in the paragraph which has the same meaning as the word, “pirates”. Not a “Yo ho ho” to be heard – but as long as Somalia is in chaos, there will be no shortage of buccaneers. The word is “buccaneers”.
  • 7. 4. Which country do the pirates mainly come from? The pirates mainly come from Somalia.
  • 8. SOMALIA
  • 9. 5. Write down the phrase that implies that Somalia is politically unstable? Not a “Yo ho ho” to be heard – but as long as Somalia is in chaos, there will be no shortage of buccaneers. The phrase is “in chaos”.
