Reading Comprehension

Time: 45 minutes

Part 1

Read this article about forks and decide whether statements 1-10 are true or false according to the text. Write T or F in each box.

In 1608 an Englishman whose name was Thomas Coryate visited Italy. He liked the country and noted down every interesting thing he found. But there was one thing which he found more interesting than the others. In his diary Thomas wrote, ‘When the Italians eat meat, they use small forks. They do not eat with hands because, as they say, people do not always have clean hands.’

Before leaving for England, Thomas Coryate bought a few forks.

At home Thomas gave a dinner party to show the invention to his friends. When the servant brought the steak, he took out a fork and began to eat like they did in Italy.

Everybody looked at him in surprise. When he told his friends what it was, they all wanted to take a good look at the strange thing. All his friends said that the Italians were very strange people because the fork was very inconvenient.

Thomas Coryate tried to prove the opposite. He said it was not nice to eat meat with one’s fingers because they were not always clean.

Everybody got angry at that. Did Mr Coryate think that people in England always had dirty hands? And weren’t the ten fingers they had enough for them?

Thomas Coryate wanted to show that it was very easy to use the fork. But the first piece of meat he took with the fork fell to the floor. His friends began to laugh and he had to take the fork away.

Only fifty years later did people in England begin to use ' forks.



  1. Thomas Coryate brought forks to England because he believed it was not nice to eat meat with fingers.

  3. Thomas Coryate wanted to make business selling forks.

  6. Coryate’s friends didn’t pay any attention to the forks

  7. The first piece of meat fell to the floor when Thomas took it with the fork because he had not used to eating with a fork.

  8. The steak was too tough so it fell down.

  9. People in England began to use forks in 1658

  10. People in England don’t use forks nowdays.





Part 2

Read the following text. For Questions 1-5, choose the answer (A, B, C)

Safari Parks

A safari park is like a large zoo, where the animals live in natural conditions. There are several safari parks in Britain and they are very popular places for visit. One of the most famous is at Windsor, which is close to London airport.

You can visit some parts of the safari park on foot. Here you can see the animals that are not dangerous, like giraffes, zebras, camels and antelopes. The animals walk around as if they were in Africa.

But safari parks also have lions, tigers, leopards and other dangerous animals. These cannot be kept with the other animals, because they would eat them. They would also eat the visitors, so they have to drive through the parts where these animals live. You have to keep your windows closed and you must not get out of the car. It is not a good idea to take a new car into this part of the park, because the monkeys climb on the cars.

Safari parks are much better than ordinary zoos, because the animals do not have to live in small cages.

  1. How do the animals live in safari park?

A in natural conditions

B in small cages

C in comfortable rooms

  1. You can visit some parts of the safari park with non-dangerous animals .

A by little locomotive

B by special bus

C on foot

  1. How do the visitors have to behave in safari park?

A They must not get out of the car

B They must keep windows closed

C All variants are correct.

  1. The dangerous animals .

A can eat non-dangerous animals

B live with non-dangerous together

C live apart in small cages

  1. What is the one of the most famous safari park in Britain?

A Blackpool safari park

B Windsor

C Manchester safari park


Part 3

Put the scrambled paragraphs in the right order (from A to E)

A I decided to call the police. On tiptoes I went downstairs and dialed 999. The police answered and I explained what had happened. They promised to come at once.

B One night I was alone at home with my little daughter Pat. My husband had gone on a business trip. Pat woke me up in the middle of the night: ‘Mummy, there’s a man outside the house. He was watching me through the window.’

C Soon a police car pulled up in front of the house. I opened the door and let in a young police officer. After listening to my story he went out. Five minutes later he returned. ‘It’s all right,’ he said, ‘the man was only walking his dog, and it ran into your garden.’

D ‘And why was he looking at our window?’ I asked the officer. ‘Probably out of curiosity,’ he said. ‘There’s nothing we can do, Madam. It isn’t a crime to walk a dog at night.’

E I went quickly into my daughter’s room and looked out of the window. I could see the dark figure of a man in our garden. Who was he and what was he up to? Why was he looking at our window? Was he going to break in?
