Ques) read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:

US president barrack Osama’s energy plan calls for higher efficiency standards for cars as well as greater use of ethanol. It aims to cut US oil demand by about four million barrels a day. That’s equal to the combined oil consumption of France and Canada, and would knock the bottom off the world oil market. That has to be a good thing in a world of energy shortages, even though a study conducted at Stanford’s wood institute for the environment claims that reliance on bio fuels is not a good strategy.

If Osama’s new energy plan takes off, it would promote interest in research and development of clean, alternative energy options like those of wind, water, solar and hydrogen resources as well as develop hybrid vehicles. It could find ways of making crop based bio fuels viable. Oil’s long term

Now, complete the following statements:

1) President obama’s energy plan is aimed at:

2) A study at Stanford’s woods institute claims:


3) Osama’s new energy plan could find:


4) America’s ethanol-from-corn have driven:


5) find out the synonym of ‘planning’ from the passage.
