It is often said that books is always good friends and reading is an active mental process. Unlike TV, books make you use your brain. By reading, you think more and become smarter. Reading improves concentration and focus. Reading books takes brain power. They requires you to focus on what you are reading for long periods. Unlike magazines, Internet posts or e-mails that might contain small pieces of information. "Books tell the whole story". Because you must concentrate in order to read, you will get better off concentration. Many studies show if you do not use your memory, you lose it. Reading helps you stretch your memory muscles. Reading requires remembering details, facts and figures and in literature, plot lines, themes and characters.

There will be no heat and very little light, and the solar system will be a cold, dead place. Questions 56 -- 60. Read the passage and choose the best answer to each question that follows. Write A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet. 

Twenty-three million years ago, a giant carnivore larger than any modern-day lion or polar bear stalked sub-Saharan Africa, according to the fossils of a previously undiscovered species that spent decades in a museum drawer at the National Museum of Kenya. The fossils were originally found in Kenya decades ago, but at that time researchers were searching for ancient apes, so the fossils were put aside. 

The skull of the fossil is comparable to that of a rhinoceros, and given its size and giant sharp teeth, the carnivore was at the head of its food chain. Researchers estimate that it weighed 1.6 tons and could prey on large herbivores akin to today's elephant and hippopotamus. Its canine teeth and molars would have been able to tear flesh and crack bones easily. 

The researchers dubbed the newly discovered species Simbakubwa kutokaafrika, which is Swahili for "big lion coming from Africa." But it's not a close relative of lions, other big cats or even mammalian carnivores that roam the Earth today. Instead, Simbakubwa was part of the hyaenodonts, an extinct group of mammalian carnivores that lived in Africa. 

After the extinction of dinosaurs, they enjoyed a 45 million-year reign as the key predators. Additionally, tectonic plates shifted, allowing Simbakubwa to cross a landbridge into Eurasia and flourish on other continents as well. And even though they lived for millions of years, they went extinct between 15 million and 18 million years ago. 

"We don't know exactly what drove hyaenodonts to extinction, but ecosystems were changing quickly as the global climate became drier. The gigantic relatives of Simbakubwa were among the last hyaenodonts on the planet," said Matthew Borths, study author and curator of the Division of Fossil Primates at Duke University. Nancy Stevens, study co-author and professor in the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University, noted in a statement that "This is a pivotal fossil, demonstrating the significance of museum collections for understanding evolutionary history. Simbakubwa is a window into a bygone era. As ecosystems shifted, a key predator disappeared, heralding Cenozoic faunal transitions that eventually led to the evolution of the modern African fauna."
