Sample Reading Passage:

Seeds are being brought here from all over the world, from seed banks created by governments, universities, and private institutions. Soon, there will be seed varieties from at least 100 crops in the Svalbard vault – extending to examples of all of the 1.5 million known crop seed varieties in the world. If any more are unearthed, either in the wild or found in obscure collections, they can be added, too – the vault has room for at least 4.5 million samples. Inside the entrance area, it is more than 10°C below freezing, but in the chambers where the seeds are kept, refrigerators push down the temperature even further, to -18°C. At this temperature, which will be kept constant to stop the seeds from germinating or rotting, the wheat seeds will remain viable for an estimated 1,700 years.

Questions:

1.Seed varieties from almost 100 crops will be spread out at the Svalbard vault. 

2. There can be a collection of almost 4.5 million known crop seed varieties in the Svalbard vault. 

3. The wheat seeds aren’t suitable to be stored in the Svalbard vault. 

4. At the 18C temperature, the wheat seeds will remain feasible for almost 1700 years approximately. 

5. At the entrance of the Svalbard vault, the temperature is 10C which is further pushed down to 15C when the seeds are kept. 

Answers:

1. Seed varieties from almost 100 crops will be spread out at Svalbard vault – Yes. 

2. There can be a collection of almost 4.5 million known crop seed varieties in the Svalbard vault -Yes. 

3. The wheat seeds aren’t suitable to be stored in the Svalbard vault – Not given. 

4. At the 18C temperature, the wheat seeds will remain feasible for almost 1700 years approximately – Yes. 

5. At the entrance of the Svalbard vault, the temperature is 10C which is further pushed down to 15C when the seeds are kept – No. 

Explanation of the answers:

For the first question, it is mentioned in the passage that the seed varieties from at least 100 crops will be seen in the Svalbard vault. So, the answer is Yes. 

For the second question, it is clearly mentioned in the passage that the Svalbard vault will consist of 1.5 million known crop seed varieties and there’s room for 4.5 million samples. So, the answer is Yes. 

For the third question, it is not mentioned anywhere in the passage that the wheat seeds aren’t suitable to be stored in the Svalbard vault. So, the answer is Not Given. 

For the fourth question, we come to know from the passage that the wheat seeds will remain viable for an estimated 1,700 years when it is stored at 18c temperature. So, the answer is Yes. Here, viable refers to feasible and estimated means approximately. 

For the fifth question, it is given in the passage that inside the entrance area of Svalbard vault, the temperature is more than 10C below freezing and it is further pushed down to 18C when the seeds are kept. So, the answer is No.
