“Koko, where are you?” Hamid called softly to his cat. “He may have wandered to the harbor,” said Hamid’s friend, Muchtar. Soon, the boys were at the harbor’s gate, marked “Gate 6”, of Tanjung Priok Harbor. Two policemen were guarding the gate. The boys moved quietly so that the policemen could not see them. The boys knew the policemen did chase them if they saw them.
The boys knew koko was somewhere near the gate because they had heard him meowing. The sound seemed to come from a taxi that was parked nearby. Hamid and Muchtar saw two men standing beside the taxi. The men were talking in low tones. Then, one of them opened the car trunk and Hamid saw Koko crouching among some bags.
Not long after that, those men left. Hamid quickly ran to the taxi. Finding the car trunk unlocked, Hamid lifted the lid. What a shock! There were bags of explosive! At the moment, Hamid heard the men coming back. He swept Koko into his arms and ran back to where Muchtar was keeping watch.
“Those men are smugglers trying to bring explosive into the harbor,” Hamid whispered to Muchtar. “What shall we do?” asked Muchtar fearfully. “We must alert the policemen at the gate.” Hamid said.

The following text is for questions no. 70-72.
Silkworms live for only two or three days after laying eggs. About 36,000 to 50,000 eggs are laid, and these are carefully stored at the silkworm farm until they are ready to hatch. The eggs hatch into caterpillars, which feed on mulberry leaves. Soon the caterpillars are ready to spin their cocoons. Not all caterpillars can spin silk cocoons. Only the caterpillars of a silkworm moth known as “Bombyx mori” can do such spinning.
This caterpillar has special glands which secrete liquid silk through its lower lip. The liquid produced later hardens to form thin strands. The caterpillar makes its cocoons using these strands. The threads on the outside of the cocoons are rough, while those inside are soft and smooth.
Some fully-spun cocoons are heated. This kills the pupa inside. The cocoons are then put into hot water to loosen the fine threads. Finally, these threads are reeled out the cocoons. The length of unbroken thread produced by a single cocoon measures about one-and-a-half kilometers. Twist several of these threads together can make single women material.
