1.       Read the text. In each questions choose the right answer, A,B,C or D.

  Christohper Columbus was a famous explorer. He came from Genoa, a seaside city in the north of Italy. When he was a boy, Columbus knew he wanted to become a sailor, and he first went to see when he was only 14 years old.

  In Columbus’s time, getting to Asia was very important for Europeans. This is because Asia had wonderful things that Europeans wanted to buy. Europeans  knew of two different ways to get to Asia:  over land through the east or by sea around the coast of South Africa. But both these journeys were difficult, dangerous and tooka very long time.

  Columbus had an idea to sail west, instead of south, across the Atlantic Ocean because he thought he could reach Asia more quickly and easily this way. Columbus told the king of Portugal about his idea and asked him to give him ships for his voyage. The king said no. He asked the kings of France and England. But they said no too. After many years, the king and queen of Spain agreed to help Columbus. In August, 1492, Columbus set sail from Spain. Two months later, he landed on an ireland in the Americas. This landing was one of the most important in European history. It was the start of  the Europeans living in America. But Columbus didn’t understand he was in a new part of the world! He was certain he was in India. This is the reason he called the natives who lived in Americas “Indians”. Columbus returned to the Americas three more times during his lifetime. Each time, he believed he was in Asia. During his life, Columbus never realised he was in a new part of the world. Even though Columbus was wrong about being in Asia, people today still consider Christopher Columbus a great explorer.
