Раздел 2 Чтение


Установите соответствие между заголовками A -G и текстами 1-7. Занесите свои ответы в таблицу. Используйте каждую букву только один раз. В задании один заголовок лишний.
1. There are two main types of newspaper: 'broadsheets' and 'tabloids'. Broadsheets are often larger than tabloids, and are 'serious' newspapers. They present the news in detail, and do not have many stories about the private lives of famous people. Tabloids, on the other hand, are much more interested in news and scandals involving stars than they are in serious news. They often have very big headlines, particularly on the front page, and have lots more photographs.
2. There is an organisation in the UK called the Plain English Campaign. Their aim is to try to get official documents, such as government leaflets, written in a style of English that is easy to understand. They say that a lot of written English, particularly when it's talking about legal issues, is confusing, even to British people. They have had a lot of success, and many government departments now make sure that the documents they produce are checked to make sure they're understandable.
3. The Tolstoy family have contributed much to Russian society and culture for many hundreds of years. One of the most famous Tolstoys, Count Lev Nikolaevich, better known to the world as Leo Tolstoy, was born in 1828. He was a writer, politician and philosopher, and is now considered to be one of the greatest novelists of the 19th century. Many of his books, including War and Peace and Anna Karenina, are still extremely popular today. Leo Tolstoy died in 1910.
4. If you're reading a newspaper and you want to find out what's on TV at 8 o'clock tonight, you don't read every word on the TV page. You ignore all the programmes on earlier in the day, and just look at the information about programmes on at 8 pm. With a news report, however, you may read the whole thing through quickly to get a general idea of what it's about. If it looks interesting, you might decide to read it in more detail.
5. When we want to find a company's telephone number, we look in a telephone directory. The Internet, however, doesn't have a directory of websites, so how can we find the web ite of a business we're interested in? The answer is to use a 'search engine'. One of the most popular earch engines at the moment is Google. Let's say you want to find a company called Haymarket. You do a quick search on Google, and all the websites which have the word Haymarket in them appear in a list.
6. Many people suffer from some form of dyslexia. This means that their reading or writing ability is not as good as you would expect from their level of intelligence. There are actually many different types of dyslexia. If you have 'scotopic sensitivity syndrome', for example, you find it difficult to read black print on white paper. Other colours, however, are much easier to read.
7. With some languages, such as English, Russian and Greek, words are written and read from left to right. In other words, the person writing or reading starts on the left-hand side of the page and then moves to the right. With some other languages, however, the opposite is true. To get from the beginning to the end of a sentence in Arabic, for example, you start on the right-hand side of the page and move to the left.

'Congratulations, Angela! You've won the car, you've won the holiday for two in the Caribbean, and now you're through to the final for a chance to win one million pounds!'
Angela was sure that even the screaming and clapping of the audience wouldn't be able to drown out the sound of her beating heart. She couldn't believe it - the first time she'd ever taken part in a game show and here she was in a potentially life-changing situation.
'Stay calm,' she thought to herself. 'Don't lose control now.'
'Okay, Angela,' said Bob, the presenter. 'Now, skill has got you this far but, as you know, there's always an element of chance in the final and this week is no exception.' Angela nodded. She'd never missed an episode and knew what every round entailed. 'So let's have a look at how you could win one million pounds!'
A brightly-coloured board descended from the ceiling of the studio. On the board were three large doors. 'Angela, behind one of these doors is one million pounds. Pick the right one, and you're going home today a millionaire. Pick the wrong one and you're going home with...
'The audience didn't hesitate to complete Bob's catchphrase for him: '... just your bus fare!' Even Angela mouthed it, she knew it so well.
'That's right! And we don't want that, do we? So pick a door, Angela, and may luck be with you!'
Angela thought carefully before answering.
'The middle door please, Bob,' she said finally.
'The middle door!' repeated Bob. 'Okay! But before we have a look, I'm going to open a door that you were wise not to choose. He opened the door on the far left, revealing a picture of a bus ticket. The audience cheered. Angela's heart started beating faster.
'Now, Angela,' said Bob. 'We're going to be nice to you. You've got another choice to make. You can either stick with your original choice - the middle door - or you can change your decision and opt for the door on the right-hand side. What's it to be?'
As a mathematician, Angela had come across the very same problem at university. Now, here she was, facing it in real life. She couldn't believe her luck. She knew what not many people know, a fact that seemed to contradict all reason and common sense. She did the maths in her head one more time just to make sure she wasn't mistaken. She wasn't. When she'd picked the first door, she had a one in three chance of being right. Looking at it the other way round, she had a two in three chance of being wrong. Those were not good odds. But one of the wrong doors had now been eliminated, so if she changed her choice to the other possibility, she would double her chances of being right, of winning the million. It seemed impossible, but she knew it was true.
'What are you going to do Angela? Stick with your original choice or switch to the other door?'
'Bob, I'd like to switch, please,'
'Angela's going to switch! Let's get this right, Angela. You now believe - you now hope – the million pounds is behind the right-hand door. Is that correct?'
"The right-hand door, yes,' said Angela weakly.
'Not the middle door?'
'No, not the middle door.'
'What are you going to do if it is actually behind the middle door?' asked Bob.
'Cry, probably!' said Angela.
The audience laughed.
'I'm going to open the door you chose, Angela - the right-hand door. Let's hope there isn't a bus ticket behind it. Here we go!'
Time seemed to stand still as Bob outstretched his arm and began to open the door. Angela had never known a feeling like this. Surrounded by so many people, she felt like the only person in the universe. Here was the moment of truth, and she was not sure she could face the consequences, whatever they were.
A15 When she got through to the final, Angela couldn't believe that
1) her heart was beating so loudly.
2) she'd never taken part in a game show before.
3) the audience were supporting her so much.
4) her life might be about to change completely.
A16 the presenter tells Angela that
1) she will need some luck to win the money.
2) she won't make an exception for her.
3) her skill will increase the chances of her winning.
4) there is a small chance her skills will be useful.
A17 When the presenter doesn't finish a sentence, it's clear that
1) the audience has already been told what to say.
2) the presenter is unsure exactly what to say.
3) the presenter is well known for saying something.
4) Angela had to complete a well-known saying.
A18 When the presenter opens the first door,
1) he knows that Angela has won the money.
2) he doesn't know which door the money is behind.
3) he knows which door the money is behind.
4) he thinks she has made a bad choice.
A19 Angela 'couldn't believe her luck' that
1) her education would help her with this decision.
2) the presenter was giving her an extra chance.
3) he'd been in the same situation at university.
4) she knew far more facts than most people.
A20 Angela was absolutely certain that
1) her money was behind the right-hand door.
2) she could increase her chances of winning.
3) she had an impossible decision to make.
4) she had to analyse the problem in a different way.
A21 Bob began to open the right-hand door, Angela felt
1) there were too many people around her.
2) knowing the truth was the most important thing.
3) worried by what the future would bring.
4) annoyed by Bob being so slow.

How was Jackson going to get rid of Simon? That was the question that had kept him awake for the previous three nights, and which he pondered as he now walked home from work. It had all started so innocently, as a favour to a friend.
'Could you put me A22 _______ , Jackson?' Simon had asked. 'Just for a couple of nights.'
Jackson of course had said yes, thinking that it would be just for two nights. How wrong he had been. Now, more than four months on, Simon was still in the flat and there seemed little evidence to suggest he was A23 _______ to leave. The evidence, in fact, pointed to quite the opposite conclusion.
Simon seemed to have A24 _______ in so comfortably, Jackson wondered sometimes if it was actually Simon's flat, and he, Jackson, was the one staying there as the guest.
Jackson knew he should A25 _______ his feelings clear to Simon - that he valued his own privacy, that he didn't want to live with someone else on a permanent basis, that he felt Simon was abusing his hospitality - but the truth was he was scared.
Not scared of how Simon would react physically, but scared that Simon would take offence, and would A26 _______ him of being selfish and not caring about a friend who was in trouble.
And Simon was in trouble. With no job, no money and nowhere else to stay, where would Simon go if Jackson A27 _______ him out? 'Maybe I am being selfish,' Jackson thought, 'but the situation just can't go on like this.'
He made the decision to bring the subject up sometime that evening. 'I won't ask him to leave immediately,' he reasoned. 'That would be unfair, and would put him in a difficult A28 _______. But I'll explain that the whole arrangement was meant to be temporary, has gone on for a very long time now, and that, while it's been nice having Simon as a flatmate, it just can't go on indefinitely.'
