       From time to time people in different parts of the world see a very strange
creature. It is half animal and half man.
       People call him a Yeti, a snowman or a bigfoot. They say he is 3 metres tall
and weighs more than 230 kilogrammes! He has got brown hair on his body, but
his face isn’t hairy. It looks like a man’s face.
       Like you or me, the Yeti walks on two legs. But his feet are much bigger. In
fact, they are very, very big.
       His neck is short. His arms are long and strong. The Yeti lives high in the
mountains, in the snow. People try to catch the Yeti but they can’t. No one has
caught the Yeti yet. The photos of the creature aren’t very good. Don’t worry if
you meet a Yeti. He looks dangerous, but he isn’t. He will eat a plant before he
eats you.

       6. Reading. Read the text carefully. Answer the questions below.
       People all over the world love cats because they are beautiful and gentle.
They are not expensive to keep, and they are very clean.
       There are about forty breeds, or kinds of cats. They come in many different
colours, and can have short hair or long hair. Siamese cats come from Thailand,
where the weather is very hot. They have creamy white fur. However, the tips of
their ears, tails, paws and noses, are darker.
       The Korat cat also comes from Thailand. This short-haired cat has large eyes
and deep blue-grey fur. Because it looks like a rain cloud, people carry it in rain
ceremonies, when farmers sing and dance to bring rain.
       Normal Thai cats have kinked tails. There is a legend which explains this. A
Thai cat was sitting beside a bathing pond when a beautiful princess came along.
First the princess took off her rings and looked around. ‘Where shall I put these?’
she asked. The cat heard her. It wanted to help the princess, so it held out its tail.
The princess put her rings on the cat’s tail and went to bathe. The cat kinked its tail
so that the rings could not fall off. And that is why Thai cats have kinked tails.
       There are cats everywhere. There are cats in Egyptian tomb paintings and on
coins from ancient Greece. There are cats in stories and poems. Can you think of
any cartoon cats?

       6. Reading. Read the text carefully. Answer the questions below.
       The human history without horses could be very different. Scientists believe
that the horse first appeared in North America. But it was not the horse we know
today. It was not larger than a fox. But these small creatures kept changing and
growing and about a million years ago, pony-sized horses galloped across ancient
lands around the world.
       At first people hunted horses for food, but it was not easy. About 50,000
years ago people learnt to keep horses in groups and walk them together from one
place to another. People used first domestic horses for meat, possibly also for milk
and to carry things when people had to move from one place to another. The horse
was becoming a worker and a man’s helper not just a meal walking on four hoofs.
       Most scientists think that the first horses were used to pull carts, not for
riding, because at those times horses were too small to carry an adult human. Other
scientists believe that riding came first, because not only horses but people also
were small at those times. Still it took people many years to learn how to ride.
They had nobody around to teach them.
      33. Where did the horse first appear?
          …………………………………………………………….
      34. What did the first horse look like?

                                      Test 4

      I. Part I. Reading.
      Read the text.
                             Where does rain come from?
       Rain always comes from clouds. But where do clouds come from? How does
all that water get into the sky?
       Think about your bathroom. There is hot water in your bath. Steam goes up
from the hot water. The steam makes small clouds in the bathroom. These warm
clouds meet the cold walls and windows, and then we see small drops of water on
the walls and windows.
       The world is like your bathroom. The water in the oceans is warm when the
sun shines on it. Some of this water goes up into the sky and makes clouds. The
wind carries the clouds for hundreds of kilometres. Then the clouds meet cold air
in the sky, and we see drops of water. The drops of water are rain.
       The rain falls and runs into rivers. Rivers run into oceans. And the water
from oceans makes clouds and more rain. So water is always moving from oceans
to clouds, to rain to rivers, to oceans. So the rain on your head was on other heads
before! The water in your garden was in other gardens in other countries.
       Are the sentences about the text true (T) or false (F)?
       1. Rain never comes from a blue sky.
       2. Clouds come from the bathroom.
       3. Hot water makes rain in the bathroom.

       8. The same water falls from the sky again and again.
       9. The steam always goes down.

       Reading. Part 1. Read the text and write T for true and F for false
sentences.
       1. Coca-Cola is a famous alcoholic drink.
       2. Dr Pemberton was a real doctor.
       3. Dr Pemberton kept the secret of his drink.
       4. Asa Candler worked for Coca-Cola.
       5. People can buy Coca-Cola only in America.
       Coca-Cola is one of the most popular soft drinks in the world. Dr Pemberton
first made it in Atlanta, America, in 1886. Dr Pemberton was not a real doctor but
he sold syrops to people who were ill. He made his first Coca-Cola drink with
syrop and soda water. He gave it to his friends to try. They liked it and asked him
to make it even better.
       Although Dr Pemberton’s drink was 99% sugar and soda water, 1% of it was
coca leaves and cola nuts (that is why he called the drink ‘Coca-Cola’) and some
other things. Dr Pemberton didn’t not tell anyone what these other things were. He
kept them a secret. The drink did not sell well at first so he sold his secret. Two
years later he died.
       In 1892, Asa Candler bought the secret and started The Coca-Cola
Company. Until 1899, people could not take the soft drink away from the shops to
drink it at home. They had to drink it in the shops. However, when the Coca-Cola
became very popular people wanted to take home bottles of it, so Mr Candler
agreed to sell it in bottles.
       Today, the Coca-Cola Company is one of the largest companies in America.
In 1992, it sold 506 million bottles of Coca-Cola each day. People can buy it in 195
countries. It is still the same drink that Mr Pemberton made in 1886.

                                    Basketball.
       Basketball is one of the most popular games in the world. People play it in
most countries. It is a good game for the rich or the poor and some basketball
players have become rich from playing the game. Some people think it is a very
old game, but the basketball people play today is quite new.
       Dr James Naismith invented basketball in America in 1891. He invented it
because he wanted a game people could play inside or outside, in the daytime or at
night. He wanted it to be a team game and one that both men and women would
like and could learn easily. He wanted it to be exciting to watch and to play. He
wanted the players to use a ball, but not a bat. The ball had to be large and light.
He wanted it to be easy to catch and throw, but not easy to hide. The winning team
would be the team that could throw the ball the most times through a high basket.
It is from the word ‘basket’ that the game got its name.
In Naismith’s game there were only 13 rules, but these changed many times until
1934. In that year, people stopped changing the rules.
       Although Naismith’s basketball is a new game, the Mayan people of Mexico
played a game like it many thousands years ago. However, this was not a very nice
game, because the losers died. The most famous basketball team is American and
is called the Harlem Globetrotters.

       1.   Mac and Dick McDonald lived in Hong Kong.
       2.   The McDonald brothers decided to have a smaller menu and use plastic
plates.
       3.   The first customers had chairs to sit.
       4.   Ray Kroc started working for McDonald brothers.
       5.   Nowadays, McDonald’s is very popular.

       There were two McDonalds – Mac and Dick – and they were brothers. In
1948, they owned a restaurant in California. They liked working in the restaurant,
but they got tired of the customers ordering so many different things to eat. “If we
gave the customers a smaller menu, we could make some food before they come,
and so they wouldn’t have to wait long for their meals”, said one of the brothers.
The other brother agreed and added, “ We could also use plastic plates so there
wouldn’t be any washing-up”.
       There were such good ideas that McDonald brothers used them, and the
customers were very pleased. They got their meals very quickly - in less than a
minute – and they paid only 15 cents for hamburgers and 10 cents for fries. The
first McDonald restaurant had no seats for customers to sit on. That meant that
people had to take their food away, and that no one had to clean up any tables after
them.
       Then a man called Ray Kroc came to the brothers and asked to buy their
business. They agreed to sell it for $37 million. Before long, there were
McDonald’s restaurants all over the world – even in China and Russia. The most
successful McDonald’s business is in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong McDonald’s
sells more hamburgers every day than any other McDonald’s anywhere else in the
world. McDonald’s restaurants are so successful because children love going to
them, they like the food and they like the toys and games they can get at
McDonald’s.

     1. Jazz was created by white Americans.
     2. It is a mixture of work songs and church music.
     3. Jazz bands were first organised at the beginning of the 19th century.
     4. Jazz sounds the same each time it is performed.
     5. Today people only play jazz in New Orleans.

                                        Jazz.
       Americans have contributed to many art forms, but jazz, a type of music, is
the only art form that was created in the United States. Jazz was created by black
Americans. Many blacks were brought from Africa to America as slaves. The
black slaves sang and played the music of their homeland.
       Jazz is a mixture of many different kinds of music. It is a combination of the
music of West Africa, the work songs the slaves sang, and religious music. Jazz
bands formed in the late 1800s. They played in bars and clubs in many towns and
cities of the South, especially New Orleans.
       New Orleans is an international seaport, and people from all over the world
come to New Orleans to hear jazz. Improvisation is an important part of jazz. This
means that the musicians make the music up as they go along, or create the music
on the spot. This is why a jazz song might sound a little different each time it is
played.
       Jazz became more and more popular. By the 1920s, jazz was popular all
over the Untied States. By the 1940s, you could not only hear jazz in clubs and
bars, but in concert halls as well. Today, people from all over the world play jazz.
Jazz musicians from the United States, Asia, Africa, South America and Europe
meet and share their music at festivals on every continent. In this way jazz
continues to grow and change.

                                    Frozen Food.
       It was not until 1930 that people could keep food fresh for a long time. They
did this by freezing it.
       Clarence Birdseye was the first person to sell frozen food. He had watched
fishermen catching fish in the coldest part of Canada. The fish came out of the water
and froze in the cold air. Months later, these frozen fish were still fresh, and the
fishermen could cook and eat them. Mr. Birdseye started a freezing company with
some friends. He put fresh vegetables into large boxes of water. Then he put the
boxes in a large freezer. He later sold his part of this business and started another
one on his own. He called his new company ‘Birds Eye’.
        The Birds Eye Company made frozen foods from all kinds of vegetables. It
sold the frozen foods in ten different shops in America. At first the frozen foods
did not sell very well. Many people did not have anywhere to keep them because
they did not have fridges. Also the price was high. However, when more people
had fridges, frozen foods became more popular and people did not have to pay so
much for them. By 1933, there were 516 shops selling frozen foods.
        Soon after this, The Birds Eye Company started freezing meat, and today
there are many companies selling all kinds of frozen foods. Birds Eye, however, is
still the name many people think of when they think about frozen foods.

          A fish         B meat           C vegetables
      8. Frozen food did not sell well at first because
          A people did not know about it
          B people did not have refrigerators
          C people did not like the taste of it

       Hollywood was just farmland at the beginning of the century. Early
American movies were made in other places, for example, in New York or
Chicago. In 1917 a director was making a movie in Chicago. Because of the cold
weather, he couldn’t finish the film. He took a trip to southern California and there
he found just the weather and the scenery he needed to finish the movie. The
director realised that southern California was the perfect place for making movies.
The next year his company built a movie studio in Hollywood. Other companies
followed. Before long nearly all American movie studios were in Hollywood, Los
Angeles.
       The next thirty years were Hollywood’s greatest years. Thousands of movies
were made, most by a few large and powerful studios. Directors, actors and writers
worked for these studios. They made some films that today are considered great
art. Many famous and glamorous film stars, like Bette Davis and Clark Gable lived
in Hollywood.
       Today, Hollywood is not what it used to be. Many movies are made outside
Hollywood. Many movie stars have moved in areas like Beverly Hills and Malibu.

sentences:
       Thor Heyerdahl was interested in different countries and the people who
lived there. He noticed that some things were the same in different parts of the
world. He noticed how statues and old stories in South America were the same as
in the islands far away in the Pacific Ocean. He thought that perhaps, many years
ago, people had travelled from South America to the islands. So, in 1947, he made
a wooden raft which he called Kon- Tiki and made the same journey. In the 1960s
he started to look at America and Africa and again he noticed that some things
were the same. There were pyramids in Egypt and also in South America. Ht
noticed that statues in two places were similar. He also knew that people in both
places made boats from reeds.
       He thought that perhaps many years ago people from Africa had sailed
across the Atlantic Ocean to America. He decided to make this journey himself. In
1969 he built a boat from papyrus, the reed which grows in the river Nile. The boat
was just like the boats which the Ancient Egyptians made. He called the boat Ra,
the name of the Ancient Egyptian sun god. He sailed west towards America but
after 4,500 kilometres the boat sank (broke down). The next year, Thor Heyerdahl
tried again. He built another reed boat Ra II. He started his journey from Morocco.
Fifty–seven days later he landed on the island of Barbados. He had sailed right
across the Atlantic Ocean. Perhaps other people had made the same journey 4, 000
years ago.

        Part II. Read the text and questions below. For each question choose the
correct letter A, B, C or D.
                                        Waiter!
        I went to the cinema last week and laughed all the way through the new film
Waiter! which is set in a restaurant. American actor Tom Waters plays the worst
cook the world has ever seen and he employs one of the worst waiters, played by
John Vermont.
        The London restaurant where the filming took place does actually exist. Jane
Connors, the owner, runs a successful business with many regular customers.
However, although she thinks Waiter! is a good film, she is very annoyed with the
director. When she agreed to the filming, she wasn’t told that the film is about a
restaurant where everything goes wrong and the food is disgusting. Although the
film might make Jane’s restaurant famous if it is a success, she is afraid that people
will stop coming because they will think that the food and service is terrible - like
it is in the film. Jane is worried she will lose business and may even have to close
and start again with a new restaurant.
        Having seen the film, I agree that she has a problem. The film company paid
her a very small fee, and she has since asked for more. The best solution, though is
for her to contact the newspapers. I am sure they will be very interested in her story
and it will actually help her business in the end.
      6. What is the writer trying to do in the text?
         A) advertise a restaurant
         B) review the film
         C) explain someone’s problem
         D) take someone’s advice
      7. What do we learn about Jane’s restaurant?
         A) it is very popular
         B) the food is not very good.
         C) it is in a beautiful building.
         D) the waiters are unhelpful.
      8. What did the director not tell Jane?
         A) that the film would be a success
         B) that the restaurant in the film would be very bad
         C) that she would not be paid
         D) that she would need to employ extra staff
      9. What does the writer think Jane ought to do?
         A) open a new restaurant
         B) ask the film company for more money
         C) improve the quality of the food in her restaurant
         D) write to the newspapers
      10. Which of these is an advert for the film?

          A Waiter! Comedy film set in a typical American town. Laugh at
            mistakes of crazy cook.(Tom Waters) and mad waiter (Joe
            Vermont)
          B Waiter! Learn how to cook and to be amused at the same time at
            this film made specially for television by well-known cook, Tom
            Waters.
          C Waiter! All the action takes place in a famous London restaurant.
            Find out the truth about what happens in the kitchens.
          D Waiter! Sit back and enjoy the performances at Tom Waters and
            Joe Vermont in this comedy filmed in a London restaurant.

      Part III. Read the text and decide if each statement is correct or
incorrect.
      11. More people in Sri Lanka ride a mountain bike than any other kind of bike.
      12. The writer says that you can go on a satisfactory distance each day on a bike.
      13. The writer says a bicycle is a restful way of travelling through Sri Lanka.
      14. The canals provide water for rice growing in spaces in the jungle.
      15. The writer admired the colours of the countryside.
                          On two wheels in a green land

       It is often said that the best way to see a country is to use the method of
transport which is traditional in that particular place. So people should see
Argentina on a horseback, Nepal on foot and the US by car.
       If this is true, then a bicycle is the perfect way to visit Sri Lanka. Although
the 18-speed mountain bike I used is not an everyday sight, more traditional
models are popular all over the country.
       Sharing the same kind of transport as local people changes the way you see
the place. You are travelling at a speed that somehow fits the scenery – not so slow
that you only see a small area each day, and not so fast that the details of the
countryside are missed. Better still, you can stop whenever you want to listen to
the birds or a waterfall, talk to people, smell their cooking or take a photo.
However, this doesn’t mean cycling in Sri Lanka is relaxing. If you want to see the
whole country, you have to leave towns and villages and cycle through jungle,
where the temperature is 37 degrees, cross streams, climb hills and go over paths
which are made of mud, rock or sand.
       The most pleasant paths in the jungle follow the irrigation canals. These
carry water into the bright green rice fields which appear at regular intervals
among the trees. During the afternoon, groups of children, farm workers and water
buffalo all come to swim in the canals. Then, when you climb from the jungle up
into the hilly area in the centre of the country, you see every hillside is covered
with neat rows of tea bushes in another brilliant shade of green. In fact, the whole
country is covered in more different and beautiful shades of green than I ever
thought possible.
       Now I am wondering where to ride my bike next – perhaps alongside the
canals of the Netherlands, or through the city streets of China…

                                Living in the Ice Age.
        I’m a scientist and I arrived here in Antarctica three months ago in
December. The temperature is cold but not unpleasant yet. Since arriving, I’ve
worked with about sixty other people getting everything ready for the Antarctic
winter. It’s been a lot of hard work, but it was fun, too. However, a few days ago
the ship left taking most of the staff with it, and it won’t be back to fetch us until
next December. So the hardest thing to get used to is that there are now just
fourteen of us because I’m used to working in a large company.
        I’m living on the same work station I was ten years ago. It was new then and
it’s still in good condition and unchanged. The dried food we get is also the same –
you forget what real food tastes like after a few weeks. The people working here
with me are all different from then, but I’m always happy getting to know new
people. Ten years ago, we were able to send faxes to friends and families once a
month, but today we can send e-mails and talk on the phone so we don’t feel so far
away.
        Last week we went out exploring for a few days. We slept in our very thick
sleeping bags to keep the cold out. We always have to wear the right clothes and
boots for walking on ice and snow. We were joined together by a rope all the time
in case we fell into any holes in the ice. They’re too deep to climb out of. The skies
were clear and I was reminded how lucky I am to be here. Soon we will get
amazing sunsets, too.
      6. What is the writer trying to do?
         A Persuade people to work in the Antarctica
         B Complain about his life in Antarctica
         C Describe his own experiences in Antarctica
         D Suggest ways of improving life in Antarctica
      7. What is difficult to the writer at the moment?
         A He is working with a small number of people.
         B There is too much work to do.
         C The weather is too cold.
         D The ship won’t return for months.
      8. In the writer’s opinion, what had improved since ten years ago?
          A The living accommodation is better.
          B The food is more tasty.
          C Communications have improved.
          D His colleagues are easier to work with.
      9. What particular danger was there when they were exploring?
          A the cold
          B the holes in the ice
          C getting lost
          D slipping on the ice
      10. Which of the following e-mails did the writer send to a pen-friend?
          A I’m getting used to being in Antarctica. Although people had told me
              what it was like, it’s still a shock to experience it myself.
          B There hasn’t been much to do here yet, so I’ve spent the time getting
              to know my colleagues and relaxing.
          C It’s good to be back here. I’ve forgotten how beautiful it is. I’m
              looking forward to seeing some wonderful sunsets.
          D I’ll send you my news as often as I can. It won’t be long till I’m home,
              as I’ve already been here nearly a year.

incorrect.

                                  See Tasmania!
       Rich in old-world charm and with magnificent National Parks, Tasmania is
well covered by a good road network. Light traffic and wonderful views make
driving these roads a pleasure. Though the bus system is reliable, on many routes
services may only run once daily. So hire a car and see this beautiful and
interesting island at your own speed.
       There is a variety of places to stay, and although booking is strongly
advised, particularly at peakholiday times, it should not be too difficult to arrange
things as you go, if you prefer. We sell you a set of Taz Hotel Pass vouchers and
Tasmania is yours.
       The Taz Hotel Pass offers the visitor a simple and convenient way to stay
anywhere in Australia. Each hotel ticket is paid for in advance and is for one
night’s accommodation. There is no maximum or minimum number of hotel tickets
you can buy, and we will give you your money back on unused tickets, less than a
small administrative charge. Taz Hotels are divided into simple colour categories,
with Ruby being the most basic and Diamond representing the highest quality. We
recommend that you buy a mixture of tickets, as we cannot give you your money
back if you use a higher-value ticket when staying at a lower-value hotel. If you
travel to an area where Taz have no hotels, then we will find other reasonably priced
accommodation for you in exchange for your Taz ticket.

                            The Future of the Cyberspace.
         Peter Taylor finds out how computers and the Internet are going to affect our
lives.
       In the last thirty years, the Internet has grown dramatically. In 1983, there
were only 200 computers connected to the Internet; now there are around 50
million and this growth is clearly going to continue.
       Some experts are pessimistic about the future. One worry is the activities of
cybercriminals. Even now, young hackers can get into the computers of banks and
governments. In the future, cyberterrorists may attack the world’s computers, cause
chaos, and make planes and trains crash.
       However, many people are optimistic about the future of the Internet.
Already, users can buy books, find out about holiday offers, book tickets, and get
all sorts of information from the Internet. ‘In the next few years,’ says Angela
Rossetto of Cyberia magazine, ‘it is clear that we are going to see an explosion of
shopping on the Internet.’
       She also believes that, in the future we will get entertainment from the Net
and that television will probably disappear. The postal service may also disappear
with the increasing use of e-mail.
       Some specialists see our future in virtual reality - the use of computers with
sounds and images that make you feel as if you are in a real situation. ‘Personally,
I think virtual reality will become part of modern life,’ says Australian expert Peter
Wojciechowski. ‘I see people living and working in a virtual world. We will work
in virtual offices, shop in virtual supermarkets, and we will even study in virtual
schools.’

         Are the sentences about the text true (T) or false (F)?
         1. Computers are going to influence our lives in the future.
         2. Only a few computers nowadays are connected to the Net.
         3. Cybercriminals work in banks.
         4. Hackers can cause explosion of shopping .
         5. Many people think good of the Internet.
         6. A system where people can send messages to each other by computer is
             called postal service.
         II. Choose the correct item.

      Reading. Part 1. Questions 1-8.
      Read the text and choose the best answer.

                                  Silly but successful.
       Randolph James is a wonderful example of how somebody with no ability
can become a great success. He had always dreamed of being a film director, but
he didn’t have much idea about making films. However, he was lucky and, what is
more important, he could sell himself.
       One night in a pub where many film men hang out, he told a drunk director
about his experiences in the film industry. They weren’t many, but, surprisingly
enough, the director was convinced by Randolph’s stories and took him on as an
assistant for his next film. Randolph was delighted. He left his old job
immediately, told everybody he had become an Assistant Director and turned up in
the studios the following Monday morning. However, the director had forgotten to
tell Randolph that assistants work for love and not money, and Randolph had to
live from his savings for four weeks, which is how long it took to make the film. It
was a third-rate comedy about Henry VIII and his six wives. But it was enough for
Randolph. To hear him talk you’d have thought he’d made a hundred films and
won ten Oscars.
       Still, as the British say, there’s a fool born every minute and the next fool
Randolph met was an American, Ransom T. Dealer. Ransom Dealer had made too
much money and paid hardly ant tax and so now the tax man was chasing him.
Ransom Dealer needed to invest some of his income quickly to make the tax man
leave him alone. Ransom was really looking for a keen experimental director who
would make a film that nobody would go to. The film could then be declared a
financial loss and he wouldn’t have to pay as much income tax.
       Unfortunately, he met and hired Randolph, who, admittedly, talked about
art, the theatre and God, but made a film about a vampire that loses his teeth and
has a new set made by a dentist. The film was terrible, but, believe it or not, it
became a success. You see, by chance, it had good songs and good music and so
all the young men came, sang with the actors, danced between the seats and
ignored the content. Randolph became a multi-millionaire and retired immediately.
       Ransom Dealer not only had to pay his old tax debts, but he got another tax
bill for over a million dollars as well.
       1. Randolph James became a successful film director because
          a) he was very talented.
          b) people were impressed with him and he was lucky.
          c) he always got drunk with film directors.
          d) he was good at selling films.
       2. Randolph got the job as an assistant because

          b) Randolph was a well-known film maker.
         c) the director wanted to help Randolph.
         d) Randolph had done a similar job before.
      3. When the director gave Randolph the job of assistant, he
         a) gave Randolph high wages.
         b) paid him a low salary.
         c) gave him some money from the bank.
         d) offered him no money at all.
      4. After they had made the film about Henry VIII, Randolph
         a) retired with the profits.

         c) demanded high wages.
         d) convinced people he was a great director.
      5. Ransom Dealer agreed to finance Randolph’s next film because he
         a) wanted to make even higher profits.
         b) liked art and religious films.
         c) wanted to get rid of money for tax reasons.
         d) needed the profits to pay a tax bill.
      6. Ransom Dealer chose Randolph as the director because
         a) he didn’t think he would make a successful film.
         b) he’d heard Randolph was a well-known director.
         c) Randolph was known to be very good.
         d) Randolph was good at making historical comedies.
      7. Randolph’s new film became a big success because
         a) terrible films are always successful.
         b) young people came to listen to music.
         c) the film had an interesting story.
         d) it cost over a million dollars to make.

       D Circling the entire Park, the drives provide three long distance routes –
6.1 miles, 5.2 miles or 1.7 miles - or shorter distances if you cross the Park at a
number of scenic locations. Cycling is prohibited on the pathways. It is possible to
rent bicycles at East 74th Street, daily from March through October from -10:00am
to 7:00 pm.

      E Almost 200 different species of birds can be found in Central Park during
the year. Most birds are more active in the early morning and late afternoon,
although there will be some activity throughout the day. Some birds live in Central
Park all year long while others visit only at certain times of the year. Each spring,
many birds migrate from their wintering grounds in Latin America and the
Caribbean to breeding areas as far north as Canada; each fall, the birds migrate
back. In late spring and summer, many birds in Central Park build their nests, lay
eggs, and raise their young. Watch for young birds learning to fly.

      F Central Park Conservancy Family Programs and Events Fishing is
allowed in several of Central Park’s water bodies. All fishing is on a “catch and
release” basis only, meaning that all fish caught must be put back into the water
immediately. The use of barbs on hooks and lead anchors are strictly prohibited.
The use of bread dough or bread products is discouraged as it has been found to be
harmful to both the wildlife and the waterbodies.

                              The pen and its ancestors.
       Man has never been satisfied with simply talking. For some reason he has
always considered his words and ideas to be so important that he had forever tried
to find ways of recording them on paper. Just as man has developed so many
systems of writing, so he has also developed various tools with which to write.
       One of the first instruments developed by man for writing was the stylus.
This was a sharp instrument made of bone or metal and with it the writer could
scratch his message onto stone or wood. It was used for thousands of years and
was very practical; it could also be used as a weapon. Julius Caesar was killed with
one in 44BC.
       The idea of a pen and ink was developed by the Egyptians. Their version of
the pen was made from bamboo. They sharpened one end of the stem to make a
nib; that is the point with which you actually write. They then filled the hollow part
of the stem with ink and squeezed it to force the ink onto a nib. It was a good idea,
but, as you can imagine, when paper was later introduced, a much finer instrument
was needed.
       The problem was solved with the introduction of the quill pen. The quill is
one of the large feathers on the wing or tail of a swan or goose. The quill also gave
us the word “pen”. You see, feather in Latin is “penna”. However, because this pen
was in fact a feather, it had to be sharpened quite often and so a special instrument
was made for this purpose – the penknife.
       The quill was used from the 6th to the 18th century, and then in the 19th
century a machine was invented which successfully made a nib out of metal and
this could then be fitted into a holder and put into a bottle of ink. Finally, in 1884,
a young American, Lewis Waterman, found a way of putting the ink into the
holder and the fountain pen as we know was complete.
       Although the fountain pen was very popular, a new kind of pen was
introduced just before the last war, which became more popular. This was the ball
pen or, as a lot of people call it, the biro. It was developed by a Hungarian living in
Argentina whose name was, interestingly enough, Jozsef Biro.

      10. a sea voyage;
      11. a family;
      12. the interior of a room;
      13. a person’s appearance.
      A George Meadows was now a man of fifty, and his wife was a year or two
younger. They were both fine people; and their children, two sons and three girls,
were handsome and strong. They all were merry and kind. They were happy and
they deserved their happiness.
      B King Bardolph was probably the most handsome monarch who had ever
ruled over the fine and prosperous country of Carsovia. He was tall, and dark, and
broad, and upright. His black hair was thick and curly, his teeth white, his
complexion ruddy, and his strong legs were as straight as his trees.
       C Saturday morning came and all the summer world was bright and fresh
and brimming with life. There was a song in every heart, and if the heart was
young, the music issued at the lips. There was cheer in every face, and spring in
every step. The locus trees were in bloom, and the fragrance of the blossom filled
the air.

        D I read in this morning’ paper that Edvard Hyde Burton had died at Cobe.
He was a merchant and he had been in Japan for many years. I knew him very
little. He was a tiny little fellow, very slender, with white hair, a red face, and blue
eyes. I suppose, he was about sixty when I knew him. He was always neatly and
quietly dressed in accordance with his age and station.

       E During the afternoon, the ship crossed the equator, or ‘The Line’ as the
sailors call it. All that morning the older members of the crew had been extremely
busy making secret preparations for the reception of Neptune, King of Five
Oceans, Amphitrite, his Queen, and their royal court. A large decorated platform
had been erected on a desk, and two thrones placed in the centre of the raised
stage.

       F I fastened my door and glanced round for the bed. The whole furniture
consisted of a chair, a clothes-press, and a large oak case, with squares cut out near
the top resembling coach windows. Having approached this structure, I looked
inside, and perceived it to be a singular sort of old-fashioned couch.

      Read the text.
                         Is there a Doctor in the House?
      Doctor Jim Bruce was on the night duty when the hospital received an
urgent call. A doctor was needed at once to attend a birth. Jim was given a sheet of
paper with the address. Without delay, he hurried to his car and set off for the
house, which was about ten minutes’ drive from the hospital. He had been driving
for about five minutes when his car broke down. Jim tried to start the engine again,
but nothing he did had any effect. He gave up trying and set off walking.
      It was two o’clock when he reached his destination. The journey, which
should have taken ten minutes, had in fact lasted one hour. On the sheet of paper
the number of the house was not very clear. It was either fourteen or sixteen. Jim
knocked at number fourteen.
      A man, whose name was Jones, took Jim into a bedroom. Much to his relief,
Jim seemed to have arrived in time. Mrs. Jones was suffering from strong pains.
“How often do you feel the pain?” Jim asked. “All the time, Doctor,” she replied.
Jim hurried to the kitchen and asked Mr. Jones to boil some water. Jim washed his
hands and put his instruments in boiling water. On seeing the instruments, Mr.
Jones turned pale. “What are you going to do, doctor?” he asked. “I am going to
deliver your wife’s baby, of course,” Jim said calmly. Mr. Jones fainted. Jim was
in need of assistance. Through the kitchen window he could see a light in the next
house. He went and knocked on the door. It was opened by a policeman. “Excuse
me, “Jim said. “Could you come and help me?” “I am sorry,” the policeman said,
“but I am very busy here. We have been waiting for over an hour for a doctor to
come. I have just had to deliver a baby myself. And then there’s Mrs. Jones at
number fourteen. She has fallen down and broken her leg. It’s disgusting. You can
never find a doctor when you want one!
