One day, when an Ant was nimbly running about in search of food, came across a Chrysalis that
was close to its time of change. The Chrysalis moved its tail, and thus attracted the attention of the Ant,
who then saw for the first time that it was alive. “Poor, pitiable animal!” cried the Ant disdainfully.
“What a sad fate is yours! While I can run hither and hither, at my pleasure, and, if I wish, ascend the
tallest tree, you lie imprisoned here in your shell, with power only to move a joint or two or your scaly
tail.” The Chrysalis heard all this, but did not try to make any reply.
A few days after, when the Ant passed that way again, nothing but the shell remained. Wondering
what had become of its contents, he felt himself suddenly shaded and fanned by the gorgeous wings of a
beautiful Butterfly, “Behold in me, your much pitied friend!” said the Butterfly, “Boast of your powers to

The following text is for questions 30 to 32

When I was in senior high school, my school held a study tour to Bali and all of the 11th-grade students
participated. I went there with my teachers and friends. We left our school at about 08.00 a.m.
The trip from Blora to Bali only took about one day, but it was quite exhausting because I had to sit along the way.
Luckily, the trip felt short because it was fun. I spent the whole time along the way singing, joking around, and playing
games with my friends.
All of my tiredness has suddenly gone when we arrived at Sanur Beach. It was early in the morning, so I could see
the sunrise. It was really beautiful. Then, we headed for the hotel to take a rest and had breakfast first before
continuing our adventure.
After my energy had fully recharged, then we went to the Nusa Dua Beach. We could do a lot of fun activities
there, such as playing parasailing, banana boat, and so on. I skipped those fun stuff and preferred to go to a little island
which had a lot of reptiles in there, such as snakes, turtles, etc. The view was wonderful because the island looked like
in the middle of the sea.
Next, we went to Garuda Wisnu Kencana. There were two gigantic statues of Wisnu and his bird named Garuda.
The relief on the rock was also amazing but I did not really know the story on it. At last, we went to one of the biggest
bottled tea beverage companies in Bali to do some observations. We learned how tea bottled beverages were
manufactured from the first until the last step.
Finally, our study tour in Bali was over and we went back to Blora. Although the trip was so tiring, I felt really
happy because I could learn a lot from it and spent the time with my dear friends.

Questions 39 to 42 refer to the following text.


CACTI
Cacti or cactuses are member of the plant family Cactaceae. The word "cactus" derives from the ancient
Greek, kaktos, a name for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain. Cacti occur in a wide range of shapes and
sizes.

Most cacti live in extremely dry environments, even being found in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest
places on earth because cacti can conserve water by doing many adaptions. Almost all cacti have thickened,
fleshy parts adapted to store water. Most species of cacti have lost true leaves, retaining only spines, which
are highly modified leaves. The spines help prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and
providing some shade.

Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the
north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka. Cacti have a variety of uses:
many species are used as ornamental plants and others for food (particularly their fruit).
