Read the following Passage and answer questions 1-5
Although not the longest river in America, the Rio Grande is one of the most important. But,
unlike other significant rivers, it is not used for shipping. In fact, oceangoing ships cannot
navigate the waters. No, what makes the Rio Grande so important is its location. Since 1846,
it has been the official border of Texas and Mexico.
The Rio Grande is either the fourth or fifth longest river system in North America. It all
depends on how it is measured. Because the river twists so much, it occasionally changes
course. And these course shifts can cause it to be longer or shorter. At its last official
measure, the Rio Grande clocked in at 1,896 miles. The river starts in Colorado and extends
, downward to the Gulf of Mexico. Downward is the best way of describing it too. Not only
does the river extend south, but it also starts in the mountains and gets lower and lower in
elevation as it extends to · the Gulf. Its name is Spanish for the “Big River,” but the· Rio
· Grande is actually known as Rio Bravo in Mexico. “Bravo” translates as “furious,” so the
name makes sense. Because of Its twists and turns, it certainly does seem to be angrier than
most rlversl.The Rio Grande today is mostly used as a source of drinking water. Sadly, much of the water has been drained from the river. Parts of the river are almost dry! This is because people use
more water from the river than the river can get back from rain and other sources. Experts
are working to correct this, though, with hopes of restoring the .river to its past strength.
Today, the river is important as a source of water for Texans and Mexicans. More important,
it is a symbol of cooperation between two nations. Though borders like the Rio Grande
separate nations, they are also shared spaces. The Rio Grande is therefore a symbol of
friendship and peace between two peoples.
