E) READING

Read the text about Clem Quinn and answer the questions.

                                      SKY-DIVER
Clem Quinn was always interested in flying. When he was five, he tried to fly by jumping off the
garden shed with a gold umbrella, but when he grew up he didn‟t become a pilot, he became a taxi
driver. Then 20 years ago he did a parachute jump and loved it. He decided that being a taxi driver in
London was a lot more dangerous than jumping out of a plane, so he moved to the country to learn
parachute jumping and sky-diving. He is now a full time teacher of sky-diving. He says:
„I love sky-diving because the world looks so good - blue sky, green fields, white clouds. You float
through the air, it‟s like floating in water. You can see forever, all the way to the French coast. The
views are fantastic. You can forget all your worries. People think it is dangerous but it‟s very safe.
Football is much more dangerous. Footballers often have accidents. When did you last hear of a sky-
diving accident? Next July I‟m going to do a sky-dive with 100 people from six planes. That‟s a
record. I‟m never going to retire. I‟m going to jump out of planes until I‟m an old man.‟

B. Read the text.


Queen Victoria was born in 1819. She didn't have any brothers or sisters so she was probably quite a
lonely child. She studied with a private teacher, Fraulein Lehzen, at home. She had lessons every day
from 9.30 until 5.00. From 5.00-6.00 she learned poetry in English, French and German. She had an
interesting hobby - she collected dolls and made clothes for them. She had 132 dolls.

When she was only eighteen her uncle, William IV, died and Victoria became Queen. She married her
cousin, Prince Albert, in 1840 and they had nine children (five girls and four boys). She loved Albert
very much and when he died in 1861 she was very unhappy and wanted to die. However, she was
Queen for another forty years until she died in 1901.
