Coconuts!!
 
          A cluster of coconut trees or palms is a common 1-(place/sight/scene) on the shores of many warm seas. The seeds of these palms are 2-(called/named/thought of) coconuts. Coconuts are 3- (between/among/around) the biggest seeds in the world.

            A coconut has a 4-(wide/strength/thick) husk around it when it comes from the tree. Fibers from this husk can be used in 5-(making/doing/using) coarse cloth and rope. They can also be used in weaving 6-(so/such/such as) things as hats, baskets and mats.

            The seed inside the husk is much 7-(more/less/very) important though, because it has thick walls of white “meat”. The coconut which we eat in candy, cakes and pies is made by cutting this flavourful meat into 8- (tiny/huge/enormous) pieces or shreds, a process called“shredding”. The coconut meat 9- (gives/contains/retains) a lot of oil and this oil is highly 10-(prized/priced/prised) in not only cosmetics like hand creams, lotions and soap, but also in food such as a margarine or cooking oil.

The center of the coconut is also 11-(filled/contains/full) with a clear or milky coloured liquid called coconut milk or coconut water. It’s good to drink fresh from the coconut. Many 12-(plates/dishes/menus) throughout the world use this “milk” in their elaboration

It is not easy to 13-(pick up/take on/gather) coconuts from coconut palms since they can be as tall as a ten storey 14-(building/skyscaper/apartment) and there are

 no branches to 15-(catch/take/give) a hold of. But 16-(even if/even though/despite) they did not bear coconuts, these amazing trees would be 17- (worthless/worthful/worth) having around. Their huge leaves can be used in making thatched roofs for homes  18- (when/while/but) their  trunks can be used in building.  In fact, every 19 -(part/section/top) of  the coconut palm has some value or usage.
