    Lawn care problems

    UNDERSTAND

    CONFUSE

    Many people depend heavily on the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers to keep lawns 28 . These chemicals, however, can cause damage to plants that are not being sprayed but are in the vicinity, can cause harm to passing or land-dwelling animals, and in extreme cases can cause soil and water pollution if they are overused or used 29 .

    PROPER

    It   has   been   said  that  where  these  chemicals  are  used  by  many  30 , they can enter into the food or water supply. Therefore, they can either 31 the risks of ill-health or become a direct danger to people's well-being. For these reasons, it's important that we keep our lawn-care methods as natural and organic as possible.

    Did Mars once have Martians?

    A new phase in the exploration of the Red Planet has begun now that SpaceX CEO Elon Musk 32 _______ an updated version of his Mars colonization plans during a widely anticipated talk at the 68th International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, Australia, in 2017.

    Our   return   gives   Mars   scientists   a  new  shot  at  an  old  question,  one  that  has  33 _______ intrigued them: Is there life on Mars? Or, just as intriguing, was there ever life there? One of the previous successful missions to Mars, the Viking project in 1976, focused in vain on the 34 _______ for life. Its two landers touched down at distant but similar sites on the northern plains of Mars. They analyzed the composition of the Martian soil and atmosphere, 35 _______ meteorological observations for three Mars years, and most importantly analyzed the Martian soil for evidence of microbial life.

    The soil incubated in the Viking biology experiments showed activity which in some ways mimicked what scientists expected from life but which was unlike activity seen in any soils tested on Earth before the mission. The mass spectrometer did not, however, 36 _______ any organic molecules in the soil, even at a level of just a few parts per billion.

    37 _______ life on Earth literally teems with organics, it is hard to imagine that life could exist on Mars today with no trace of organics in the soil. This evidence against life is compounded by a general problem: the absence of liquid water.

    Temperatures on Mars are so cold and the atmospheric pressure so low that water cannot exist as a liquid on the Martian surface, and liquid water is an essential feature of  life  on  Earth.  Thus  the  lack  of  organics  and  the  absence  of  liquid  water  rule  38 _______ the possibility that life now exists on the surface of Mars.
