4.Read the following passage carefully and then answer the questions that follow:

A wildfire is unplanned fire that burns in natural areas such as forest, grassland, or prairie. The wildfire can spread quickly and can devastate not only wildlife and natural areas but also communities.

The risk of wildfires depends on a number of factors, including temperature, soil moisture, and the presence of trees, shrubs and other potential fuels.

Wildfires can disrupt transportation, communications, power and gas services as well as water supply. They also simultaneously impact weather and the climate by releasing large quantities of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and fire particulate matters into the atmosphere. Resulting air pollution can cause a range of health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular problems. Another significant health effect of wildfires is on mental health and psychosocial well-being.

The magnitude of the physical and human costs from wildfires can be reduced if adequate emergence prevention, preparedness, response and recovery measures are implemented in sustainable and timely manner. This includes strengthening human resources for disaster management, containing the release of harzadous materials, putting in place early warning systems and issuing health and air quality advisories.

(a)Suggest the suitable title for the passage:

A non-democratic government is a form of government that normally does not come into power by popular election. It is the government which gets into power without majority will and peoples legitimacy. In most cases, this government results from coup detat, manipulation of election process or changing a democratic government into dictatorship after a leader has attained power through elections. Adolf Hitler of Germany was an example of a person who led his country using dictatorship style. He had come to power through popular election eventually changed into a dictator thereafter.

In this kind of leadership only one person or a small group of people who are either economically powerful or with many supporters control the government. Also they are responsible for decision making in the society. A good example of a non-democratic government is totalitarian like that of Hitler or Mussolini of Italy. Other examples of authoritarian or dictatorship governments are like those of former Zaire under Mobutu Seseseko and Uganda under Idd Amini. The basic feature of non-democratic governments is the absence of democratic principles.

A non-democratic government is a form of government that normally does not come into power by popular election. It is the government which gets into power without majority will and peoples legitimacy. In most cases, this government results from coup detat, manipulation of election process or changing a democratic government into dictatorship after a leader has attained power through elections. Adolf Hitler of Germany was an example of a person who led his country using dictatorship style. He had come to power through popular election eventually changed into a dictator thereafter.

In this kind of leadership only one person or a small group of people who are either economically powerful or with many supporters control the government. Also they are responsible for decision making in the society. A good example of a non-democratic government is totalitarian like that of Hitler or Mussolini of Italy. Other examples of authoritarian or dictatorship governments are like those of former Zaire under Mobutu Seseseko and Uganda under Idd Amini. The basic feature of non-democratic governments is the absence of democratic principles.
