Text 2: ExplanationAll planes need air to presure under their wings to stay up in the air. As they move forward. The higher air pressure underneath their wings pushes them upward and gives them lift.
The smooth, streamlined shape of the plane allows the air to flows easily over its surface. This helps to reduce the drag caused by the air pushing against the plane and allows it to move rapidly through the air.
Planes move forward using engines. This movement is called thrust. Moving forward keeps a stream of moving air passing over the wings. If the engines fail, theplanes will begin to descend very quickly.
The air above the wing moves faster, so it is at a lower pressure than the air under the wing.
The air under the wing moves more slowly and is slightly squashed, so it is at a higher pressure than the air above the wing.

Text 4 : Review
One day, a young farm boy named Eragon nds a blue stone while hunting and tries to sell it for money. Unsuccessful in his attempts, he takes the stone back to his cabin and lets it sit there until it hatches into a beautiful blue dragon. Eragon realises he can talk to this secret pet dragon with his mind, and eventually learns that he and the dragon are part of a legacy of secret heroes called the Riders.
With the help of Brom, a wise man, Eragon matures into his destiny. The challenges he face include fighting
along-standing war, helping an ethereal elf, and dealing with tragedy and revenge. Certain details, such as Eragon’s revelation that he cannot read, develop this rich work and blend together to produce a number of plot twists. The story builds suspensesteadily until the end.
Remarkably, author Christopher Paolini began writing Eragon at the age of 15. Now 19, he has already established himself as an exciting new creator whose influences include Tolkien, McCaffrey, and others. His world is intricate, his characters believable, and his writing engaging.
Both casual readers and hardcore fans of fantasy and science fiction novels will be enchanted by this well crafted fantasy and unquestionably will look forward to parts two and three of this exciting trilogy.— Reviewed by Amy Alessio
