1.Read the following passage and answer the following questions:

Many scientists believe that music soothes the plant. It also helps it to grow. This is now a scientific fact. Lee Harsten, a sound engineer from New York, carried out some exciting experiments. Here is one of them. Harsten‟s theory was that plants definitely react to music. In his experiment, he used two banana plants. He gave both plants the same light, heat and water. But for about an hour a day one of the plants „listened‟ to some music. This music was in fact a high – pitched humming sound. He found that this plant grew faster. It also grew 70 percent faster than the other plant. Harsten explained this in a very scientific way. He said the hum (or similar music) stimulated the plant‟s breathing cells and made them stay open for longer periods. Because of this the plant took in more nutrients from the air than it normally would, and thus it grew faster. He also said that if the sound was played continuously, the breathing cells would not be able to close. Therefore the plant would grow so fast that it would kill itself. Lynn and Joe Rapp, the authors of a book called „Indoor Plants‟ say that plants respond to all sound, whether it is music or voices. These sound waves make vibrations which stimulate growth. They say plants have definite likes and dislikes in music. They certainly like classical music and they dislike bad, harsh, rock music.

Answer the following questions taking help from the passage above:

a) What is the scientific fact mentioned in the passage?

b) Why do the banana plants grow faster?

c) Who wrote the book “Indoor Plants” and what did they find out?

d) Whose theory concluded that plants definitely react to music?

Harsten explained that if the sound is _______________ continuously, the _______________ cells would not be able to close. Therefore the ___________ would grow so fast that it would ____________ itself.
