Sample Reading Passage:

Nature is abundant with sweet foodstuffs, the most common naturally occurring substance being fructose, which is found in almost all fruits and berries and is the main component of honey. Of course, once eaten, all foods provide one or more of the three basic food components – protein, fat, and carbohydrate – which eventually break down (if and when required) to supply the body with the essential sugar glucose. Nature also supplies us with sucrose, a naturally occurring sugar within the sugar cane plant, which was discovered and exploited many centuries BC. Sucrose breaks down into glucose within the body. Nowadays, this white sugar is the food industry standard taste for sugar – the benchmark against which all other sweet tastes are measured. In the U.S.A. a number of foods, and especially soft drinks, are commonly sweetened with High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), derived from corn starch by a process developed in the late 1960s. And man has further added to nature’s repertoire by developing a dozen or so artificial sweetening agents that are considered harmless, non-active chemicals with the additional property of sweetness to cater to his sweet tooth.

Questions:

1.Fructose is the main constituent of honey and is present in almost all fruits and berries. 

2. Sucrose is known as table sugar and chemically consists of glucose & fructose. 

3. Sucrose is a common form of sugar found in the sugarcane plant, which was earlier discovered and exploited. 

4. Artificial sweeteners developed by man are considered to be harmful as they consist of active chemicals. 

5. High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is a sweetener made from corn starch which is commonly used in soft drinks. 

Answers:

1.Fructose is the main constituent of honey and is present in almost all the fruits and berries – Yes. 

2. Sucrose is known as table sugar and chemically consists of glucose & fructose – Not Given. 

3. Sucrose is a common form of sugar found in the sugarcane plant that was discovered and exploited earlier – Yes. 

4. Artificial sweeteners developed by man are considered to be harmful  as they consist of active chemicals – No. 

5. High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is a sweetener made from corn starch which is commonly used in soft drinks – Yes. 

Explanation of the answers:

For the first question, it is mentioned in the passage that fructose is the most common naturally occurring substance which is mainly found in fruits and berries and is the main component of honey. So, the answer is Yes. Here component refers to a constituent. 

For the second question, it is not mentioned anywhere in the passage that sucrose is known as table sugar, and it chemically consists of glucose & fructose. So, the answer is Not Given. 

For the third question, it is given in the passage that sucrose is a naturally occurring sugar within the sugarcane plant that was discovered and exploited. So, the answer is Yes. 

For the fourth question, we understand from the passage that human-made artificial sweeteners are harmless and are made up of non-active chemicals. So, the answer is No. 

For the fifth question, it is clearly mentioned in the passage that soft drinks are commonly sweetened by using High Fructose Corn Syrup derived from corn starch. So, the answer is Yes. Here, derived means made up of.
