II Reading (10рoints)
Part 1.Read the text and choose the best possible answer to the questions given below
In the 1400s, merchants and traders from Europe travelled long distances to the east by land and by sea. They
exchanged, bought, and sold things to people in Asia. Merchants from Italy, Spain, and Portugal travelled to Asia to buy
such things as jewels, gold, tea, and silk. They also bought salt and spices that were necessary to preserve food. The trade
route back and forth to Asia by land was very long and difficult. On the sea, ships had to travel all the way around Africa.
It was a long and dangerous trip.
An Italian sea captain and mapmaker named Christopher Columbus believed that there was an easier way to travel
to Asia from Europe. In the 1400s, many people believed that the world was flat! They believed that ships would fall off
the earth if they travelled too far west. Columbus believed that he could travel west across the Atlantic Ocean and arrive
in Asia. He believed the world was round. Many people laughed at Columbus, but the queen of Spain believed Columbus
was correct. She gave him money, ships, and men. He went to look for a faster trade route to Asia.
In 1492, Columbus travelled across the Atlantic Ocean with three ships. After about 30 days, he reached a land. He
thought he had arrived in India. In fact, he had really found Islands of North America. Columbus showed the world's
people that the Earth was not flat! He opened up a «New World» for exploration, for trade, and for settlement.
When Columbus reached the islands of North America, he thought he was in India. He called the people on island
Indians. Of course, they were not Indians.
They were Native Americans whose ancestors had migrated from Asia thousands of years ago. Millions of Native
Americans lived in the Americas. They lived in many beautiful cities in over 2,000 separate and advanced societies. Many
of these societies were attacked and totally destroyed by the Spanish and Portuguese who came after Columbus in the
1500s. These explorers came to find gold and other riches. They came to take new land for their countries. They killed the
Native Americans, stole their women, their gold, their land, and their possessions. These explorers became rich and
powerful. Spain and Portugal controlled all of the people and land in what are now the southern and western parts of the
United States and all of Mexico, Central America, and South America. France and England also controlled land in North
