1. Read the following excerpt.

Foley artists use props to create sound effects for movies. Their principal job is to immerse viewers in what they see by including the dimension of sound to add to the experience. Foley artists rarely capture the sounds during live taping that are included in the edited version you view. But, just how is this accomplished? How can the tiptoes of a child or the boom of thunder be recreated? A Foley artist sees the opportunity to use an everyday object to capture the sound: swishing a feather duster across a sheet of paper brings thoughts of a ballerina dancing across center stage, and waving a large piece of heavy aluminum evokes thoughts of a thunderstorm!

What is a central idea of this paragraph?
A Foley artists use everyday objects to create sounds in movies.

B Foley artists can use aluminum to make a sound like thunder.

C Foley artists use props to help create sounds.

D Foley artists create sounds after a movie is made.

2.Use this excerpt to answer the question.

Hollywood movies originated without sound, and silent movies told stories using visuals only. Eventually, background music was added to create feelings of suspense, melancholy, or romance, but there were no lines of dialogue spoken aloud by actors. As microphone technology improved, the stage was set to add dialogue, and this is when the role of the Foley artist became so important.

The movie industry is now known for creating more than silent movies, and Foley artists are part of that industry's work in elevating the viewers' senses. The term Foley artist is named after Jack Foley, an innovator in the realm of sound effects. His vision paved the way for sound to be included in the world of movies and added the dimension that what our eyes miss, our ears will pick up.
