Ratatouille is a dish that has grown in popularity over the last few years. It features eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, and garlic chopped, mixed, sautéed, and finally, cooked slowly over low heat. As the vegetables cook slowly, they make their own broth, which may be extended with a little tomato paste. The name ratatouille comes from the French word
, meaning to stir or mix together.

Which of the following is the correct order of steps for making ratatouille?
a) chop vegetables, add tomato paste, stir or mix together
b) mix the vegetables together, sauté them, and add tomato paste
c) cook the vegetables slowly, mix them together, add tomato paste
d) add tomato paste to extend the broth and cook slowly over low heat

Ratatouille can best be described as a
a) French pastry.
b) sauce to put over vegetables.
c) pasta dish extended with tomato paste.

Many animals hibernate during parts of the year, entering a state that is similar to a very deep sleep. But hibernation is more than simply a deep sleep. The animal's body temperature drops well below its normal range, the animal does not wake up for a long period of time, and its metabolism slows to the point that the animal does not need to eat or relieve itself during that period.

In order to prepare for hibernation, the animal must build up its body weight and increase its body fat. This is important, since the animal will be living off its own body fat during the months of hibernation. Of course, once the period of hibernation is over, the animal "wakes up" to find itself slim and trim once again!

How does an animal prepare for hibernation?
a) It exercises for two months.
b) It gradually increases its sleeping habits.
c) It grows extra fur.
d) It eats more food than usual.

This passage best supports the statement that
a) all animals hibernate to some degree.
b) food is scarce in the winter.
c) hibernation is very different from normal sleep.
d) bears hibernate every year.
