    "You had better go back and wash again," said Grasshopper. "All that hopping in the dirt has made your forelegs dirty again."

    Toad hopped back to the water jar, washed again, then hopped back to the table, and was ready to reach out for some food from one of the platters when Grasshopper stopped him: "Please don’t put your dirty paws into the food. Go and wash them again."

    Toad was furious. "You just don't want me to eat with you!" he cried. "You know very well that I must use my paws and forelegs in hopping about. I cannot help it if they get a bit dirty between the water jar and the table."

    How to Ride an Elevator
    1. Press the "up" or "down" button.
      When you arrive at the elevator, decide which way you are going, press the "up" or "down" button, and be ready to wait.
    2. Allow any people to leave before entering.
      Stand clear of the door. Take a step aside and allow passengers enough space to make their way out of the elevator.
    3. Make certain the elevator is going in your direction.
      Most elevators have signals to show if they are going down or up. In case you cannot find any signal, ask the passengers on the elevator which way they are headed.
    4. Decide if the elevator has enough space.
      Before entering the elevator, assess what space remains. If you cannot see enough room for you, let the door closes and wait for another elevator.
    5. Enter and find an empty spot in the elevator.
      Locate a section in the elevator where you will feel comfortable and it is convenient for your exit. The back of the elevator is the ideal location; it leaves room for other passengers to enter or exit, and it secures a good spot for longer rides.
    6. Select your floor.
      The majority of the floor buttons in an elevator are numbered; basement, garage, street level, lobby, etc. may be represented by letters. In some elevators, double-tapping on a lighted button allows you to cancel a floor call.
    7. Pay attention to the stops.
      As you ride, be aware of stops for two reasons. First, you have to give people space to help them enter or exit. Second, being ready will help you get to your floor without any issues
    8. Make sure the door opens on your floor.
      When the elevator stops, the door should open either automatically or manually. If the door won't open, search for an intercom or alarm button. If the elevator is jammed, qualified assistants will be notified.
    9. Exit quickly.
      Missing your floor will only delay you. Also, be mindful that other passengers may need to exit as well. Being swift about your exit helps everyone.

  51. Questions 44 - 48 refer to the following text.
    Joko Widodo, known as Jokowi, was born on 21 June 1961. His education began in State Primary School 111, Tirtoyoso, known for being a school for the less wealthy citizens.

    At the age of twelve, he started helping his father in his furniture workshop. After primary school, he continued his studies in SMP Negeri 1 Surakarta (middle school) and SMA Negeri 6 Surakarta. In 1985, he graduated from Faculty of Forestry at Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta.

    He then worked for his grandfather’s furniture factory before establishing his own company called Rakabu, whose namesake is the name of his first child. The company’s fine furniture product started penetrating the European market where he met a customer named Bernard who gave him the nickname “Jokowi”.

    Jokowi became the mayor of Surakarta after winning the mayoral election in 2005. His leadership style, including his 'blusukan' culture, was successful in establishing an interactive relationship with the people of Solo, through which he was able to induce people’s strong faith in him. He adopted the development framework of European cities (which he frequently traveled to as a businessman) into his own city of Surakarta.

    Jokowi won Jakarta's gubernatorial election in 2012. He continued his 'blusukan' practice to local communities, often in quite poor areas and slums across Jakarta. During these visits, he wore simple informal clothes and stopped at markets or walked along narrow Jakarta alleys to listen and witness firsthand about issues addressed by local residents such as the price of food, housing difficulties, flooding, and transportation. Polling and media coverage suggested that Jokowi’s hands-on style proved very popular both in Jakarta and elsewhere in Indonesia.

    During his governance, numerous achievements were made, such as the initiation of KJS (Kartu Jakarta Sehat) and KJP (Kartu Jakarta Pintar), the construction of Jakarta MRT, initiation of transparency programs, such as online taxes, e-budgeting, e-purchasing, and a cash management system, relocation of street vendors in Pasar Minggu and Pasar Tanah Abang to a new building, renovation of traditional markets, and initiation of dredging and reservoir normalization projects, including the normalization of Pluit Reservoir, Ria Rio Reservoir, and Pesanggrahan River, which was effective in reducing the flood problems in Jakarta.

    On 20 October 2014, Joko Widodo took his first presidential oath after winning the presidential election and became the seventh President of Indonesia. He won his second presidential election in 2019. Jokowi was the first Indonesian president to not be from the military or political elite. He stated that growing up under the authoritarian and corrupt New Order, he had never expected someone with a lower-class background to become the president of Indonesia.

    Geoparks as sustainable approach to promoting economic recovery
    24th December 2022, ANTARA

    It certainly comes as good news for Indonesia, with four of its national geoparks having received the green light for endorsement as new UNESCO Global Geoparks (UGGp).

    The UGGp Council, at its meeting in September 2022, proposed seven geoparks from six countries, including Ijen in East Java and Maros-Pangkep in South Sulawesi, for endorsement during the 2023 Spring Session.

    Thereafter, in December, it proposed 11 other geoparks, including two from Indonesia: Raja Ampat in West Papua and Merangin in Jambi.

    This good news should be viewed as an opportunity for Indonesia. With the government currently promoting the tourism sector as one of the main drivers of the country's economic recovery, geoparks that offer the beauty of nature, culture, and geoheritage are expected to increase tourist visits.

    Indonesia has focused on 10 priority destinations in tourism development: Lake Toba, Borobudur, Mandalika, Labuan Bajo, Likupang, Wakatobi, Raja Ampat, Bangka Belitung, Bromo, and Morotai.
  58. Which geoparks will be endorsed as new UNESCO Global Geoparks?

    B. Raja Ampat, Merangin, Papua, and Jambi
    C. Raja Ampat, Merangin, Ijen, and Maros-Pangkep
    D. Raja Ampat, Merangin, Bromo, and Wakatobi

  59. According to the text, the endorsement will provide the following opportunities for Indonesia, EXCEPT ....
    A. promoting the country's tourism sector
    B. increasing domestic and international tourist visits
    C. boosting the country's economic recovery
    D. viewing the beauty of nature, culture, and geoheritage
