WORKSHEET- Revision Worksheet 2 ,SA 1
Q.1 On the basis of your reading of the above passage, complete the following statements by choosing the correct option from those given below –
The oldest stone buildings in the world are the pyramids of Egypt. They have stood nearly for 5000 years, and it seems likely that they will continue to stand for thousands of years yet. They are over eighty of them scattered along the bank of the Nile, some of which are different in shape from true pyramids. The most of these are the ‘Step’ pyramid and the ‘Bent’ pyramid. Most of the damage suffered by the pyramids has been at the hands of men who were looking for treasure, or more often, for stone to use in the modern buildings. The dry climate of Egypt has helped to preserve the pyramids and their very shape has made them less likely to fall into ruins.
One thing is certain: there must have been months of planning before they could begin to build. Certain rules had to be followed and certain problems overcome. The pyramid has to build on the west side of the Nile ; the side on which the sun sets. This was for religious reasons. The pyramid also had to stand well above the level of the river to protect it against the regular floods. The pyramid could not be too far from the Nile, however, as the stones to build it needed to be carried in boats down the nearest point. The builders also had to find to find rock, which was not likely to crack under the great weight of the Pyramid. Finally, the pyramid to be near the capital, or better still, near the king’s palace so that he could visit it easily and personally check the progress being made on the final resting place of his body.
