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.
A. UNEXPLAINED EVENTS                                       E. FAILED HOPES                                       
1. When Neil Armstrong first set foot on the Moon in July 1969, many people around the world thought that it was the beginning of mankind's journey to the stars. They expected to see people flying on the Moon in special bases. However, it wasn't to be. Getting to the Moon was expensive and of limited scientific value. Those who were expecting a golden age of space exploration were dissappointed.
2. Astronauts face many dangers in space. The take-off and landing are dangerous, and there's always a chance that a meteor is going to hit your spacecraft. Other threats come from something you can't see: radiation. X-rays and other forms of radiation can cause health problems for astronauts above the protection of Earth's atmosphere.
3. For the first time, it's possible to buy yourself a ticket to space - that's if you've got $20 million to spend. Dennis Tito, an American businessman, and Mark Shuttleworth, a businessman from South Africa, have both visited the International Space Station. They were taken up on Russian Soyuz rockets and enjoyed a week of weightlessness before returning to Earth.
4. Look up into the sky at the right time and the right direction and you'll see Saturn. It will look like a bright star, but a pair of binoculars or a small telescope will give you an amazing view. Saturn has rings around it, giving it a beautiful appearance unlike anything else in the night sky. No wonder Saturn has been called the 'Jewel of the Solar System'.
5. Discovered in 1930, the planet Pluto circles the Sun at a distance of approximately six billion kilometres. That's about forty times further away from the Sun than the Earth is! At that distance, the Sun looks just like a bright star and provides very little heat. A spacecraft launched from the Earth would take twelve or thirteen years to get to Pluto, so don't expect to see close-up photographs any time soon!
6. We're used to the idea of modern telescopes giving us views of the universe and astronauts flying to the space station and back again. But did you know that the roots of astronomy go back thousands of years? The Egyptians studied the night sky, as did the original people of North America. The famous circle of stones at Stonehenge in Britain shows that people there knew about the movements of the Sun and the Moon at least 2,500 years before Christ was born.
7. When we look at the stars in the night sky, what do we see? Strange! One of the things we see is the past. We don't see the stars as they are now, but as they were a long time ago. Why is that? It's because the stars are very far away, so the light coming from them takes a long time to reach us. Even the light from the Sun, our closest star, takes about eight minutes to reach us here on Earth. So, next time you look at the stars, remember that, in some ways, you've gone back in time!

The ticket inspector handed the ticket back to Dora with a nod of his head and continued on his way down the train. He was a handsome young man, Dora thought, and he reminded her a little of her husband when he had been the same age. She smiled a little at the thought as she watched the countryside roll past the window of the train. She was now eighty-four and although she regularly forgot things that other people found so easy to remember, like where she had put her glasses, that March day when she and Ralph had got married stood out clearly in her mind. They hadn't known each other long, and relatives had tried to advise Dora against it, but they had both known that it was the right thing to do. They quickly found a house to buy and the wedding was organised in a couple of days. Dora was grateful for the forty happy years they had had together.
The sound of someone sniffing brought Dora's attention back to her surroundings. Sitting opposite her in the carriage was a woman, who Dora estimated to be in her early thirties. She looked up at Dora, who realised that the woman would welcome conversation. Dora pulled a tissue from her bag and passed it over.
'What's his name?' Dora asked with a friendly smile. The woman wiped her eyes with the tissue.
'Michael. He's just got a new job ... 'the woman began, then laughed a little. 'How did you know?'
'I wasn't always old, you know', Dora said and looked more closely at the woman. She was smartly dressed, although her clothes weren't new. Clearly she had had money in the past but now couldn't afford luxuries. Dora noticed that she had brought her own sandwiches on the journey, rather than spend money on the train. She had the air of someone who is educated but who has never had much luck at turning that education into money. Dora knew what it was like to keep up appearances on a small income and her heart went out to her fellow traveller.
'Tell me about it', she said. For the next half an hour, the woman, whose name turned out to be Sandra, told her story. Dora listened. The details of the relationship escaped her and Sandra mentioned people without explaining who they were, but Dora knew it wasn't important. Sandra wasn't looking for solutions from Dora. The only thing that mattered was that she gave Sandra a shoulder to cry on and a sympathetic ear. She nodded in all the right places and by the time the train pulled in at the next station, Sandra seemed a lot happier. Sandra looked up and cried, 'Oh, this is my stop!' She grabbed her bags, thanked Dora for listening and hurried off the train.
Dora sat back and closed her eyes. A feeling of sadness came over her for a moment. Listening to Sandra talk had been what she imagined being a grandmother was like. It would have been nice to have had children and watch their children grow up. Still, it wasn't to be and she and Ralph had spent many happy years travelling the world. She opened her eyes and looked out onto the platform as the train pulled away. Sandra was looking up at the train window and waving at her. Dora waved back and smiled, watching over her shoulder as the train station got smaller and smaller. She turned back to see a teenage girl standing beside her seat. She had a suitcase in one hand and the make-up around her eyes had run as if she had been crying. She looked exhausted.
'Excuse me', she said in a quiet voice. 'Is anyone sitting here?' She pointed to the seat where Sandra had been sitting.
'No, my dear. Sit down', said Dora, and began to reach into her bag for a tissue. It's going to be one of those days, she thought to herself.
A15 Dora has problems remembering
1) how long she was married to Ralph.
2) simple, everyday things.
3) where her husband had gone.
4) what her wedding day was like.
A16 Before getting married, Dora and her husband
1) waited until they knew each other well.
2) asked their families for advice.
3) arranged everything very carefully.
4) made sure they had somewhere to live.
A17 Dora thinks the young woman
1) would like to chat.
2) wants to ask her for a tissue.
3) looks younger than she really is.
4) is looking at her in a strange way.
A18 The young woman seems to
1) be poorer than she once was.
2) like only home-made food.
3) have problems finding a job.
4) be careless about her clothes.
A19 While Sandra talks about her life, Dora
1) gives her some useful advice.
2) tries to focus on the important details.
3) asks her to explain things more clearly.
4) acts as if she understands everything.
A20 When Sandra leaves, Dora feels unhappy for a moment because she
1) misses her husband.
2) never had children.
3) feels sorry for Sandra.
4) doesn't see her grandchildren often.
A21 Dora thinks it's going to be 'one of those days' because
1) she would prefer the girl to sit somewhere else.
2) she can't find the tissues in her bag.
3) the girl seems to have the same problems as Sandra.
4) the girl doesn't realise that Dora is exhausted.

Mr and Mrs Atkinson sat at the breakfast table. The toast was in its usual place, to the left of the teapot. And Mr Atkinson, as usual, wasn't in a good mood.

'I A23 ………………. a very strange dream last night,' she said. 'You won the lottery.' 'Hmm?' Mr Atkinson responded, without taking his eyes from the TV screen. 'Yes,' his wife continued. 'You won millions of pounds and bought us a lovely house in the country.' 'No chance of that while I'm working for Simpson's,' he said.
His wife A24 ………………. No attention to his negative comment. 'Wouldn't it be wonderful, though, to live in the countryside, instead of in this flat?' Mr Atkinson smiled at the thought. 'Yes, it would be nice,' he said, before he frowned once more.
'But we'll never be able to A25 ………………. it.' He stood up and went to collect his coat and briefcase. Mrs Atkinson sighed. Every week she bought a lottery ticket, and every week she checked the numbers. Of course, every week she was disappointed.
She thought that maybe it was time to A26 ………………. up and just accept that this was her life. She sighed again.
The TV news was A27 ………………. to an end. ' ... and finally, here are this week's winning lottery numbers ... 17, 28, 29, 37, 40 and 42.' Mrs Atkinson went white.
She A28 ………………. her breath for a moment, then walked over to her desk. She opened a drawer and, very calmly, pulled out a small piece of paper. It was a lottery ticket. Mr Atkinson came back into the room. 'Right. I'm off. I shouldn't be too late, so ... Wendy, are you all right?' Mrs Atkinson handed him the lottery ticket and then very slowly sat down.
