Void: an empty space or vacuum.
Fluorescent: able to give off visible light after being exposed to a source of heat, light, or other form of energy

Is a void messy? Why or why not?
no because it is a empty space.
Which color is the most fluorescent at night? Why?
yellow because when a car goes past when it's lights are it reflects.
Why are elderly people more vulnerable than children? Why?

a vine because they are connected to each other.

The plants in the garden are die during a frost
There were lots of different paths that joined each other
I made a shot from halfway while facing backwards.
We are still exploring outer space.
I can find my key ring easily in the dark.
How might each pair of words be connected?
If you were wearing dark clothes you will be vulnerable because you could get by a car.
Because you can connect together and clean the room to make it an empty space.
Think of a time when you felt as though you were in a void or when you saw something that happens seldom. Write a paragraph about this.
It was in my summer sport cricket last season. I got out and I had only got about 10 runs in my innings. With about 4 games to go I somehow stepped up and got not outs and 20-30 runs each game. I also bagged a few wickets in these games as well. It turned out to be a good end to the season for me.
