English Comprehension – Very Short Passages 1-10

Passage 4 – Every year, Americans use over one billion sharp objects to administer healthcare in their homes. These sharp objects include lancets, needles, and syringes. If not disposed of in puncture-resistant containers, they can injure sanitation workers. Sharp objects should be disposed of in hard plastic or metal containers with secure lids. The containers should be clearly marked and be puncture resistant.

a. do not place sharp objects in puncture resistant containers.
b. come in contact with sharp objects that have not been placed in secure containers.
c. are careless with sharp objects such as lancets, needles, and syringes in their homes.
d. do not mark the containers they pick up with a warning that those containers contain sharp objects.
