Read the following story and answer the questions that follow :
The monkey and dolphin

A sailor, embarking on a voyage to Greece, took along a monkey to amuse him on shipboard. Off the coast of Greece, near Athens, a violent storm arose. Angry waves beat against the ship and dashed it to pieces. The sailor, his monkey, and all the crew jumped into the sea and swam for their lives. A dolphin saw the monkey struggling in the water and came to his assistance. The dolphin swam with the monkey on his back towards the shore. Then the dolphin, thinking the monkey was a man, asked, "Are you,sir, an Athenian?"
"Certainly I am," the monkey replied, "and furthermore I am descended from one of the noblest families of Athens."
"Then of course you know Piraeus," the dolphin said. The monkey did not know that Piraeus was the famous harbor of Athens. "Oh yes," he said, "I know Piraeus very well. He is one of my closest friends." The dolphin was so angered at these lies that he dived into the water and swam away, leaving the monkey to flounder helplessly in the sea. Then he called back to the monkey,
"Those who tell falsehoods sooner or later find themselves in deep water."
Why did the sailor take along a monkey while going on a voyage?

A To get his help.
B For entertainment.
C In order to sell him abroad.
D None of the above.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
Six tons of pure power whacks an ice floe floating in cold Arctic waters. The seal lying on top of the ice doesn't stand a chance. Knocked into the sea, the seal becomes a meal for one of the ocean's top predators–the huge orca, or killer whale.
Orcas hunt everything from fish to walruses, seals, sea lions, penguins, squid, sea turtles, sharks, and even other kinds of whales. Depending on the season and where they are, their diet varies - some orcas eat more fishes and squid than seals and penguins. But wherever they are in any of the world's oceans, average-sized orcas may eat about 500 pounds (227 kilograms) of food a day. Orcas have many hunting techniques, and bumping seals off ice is just one of them.
Often referred to as wolves of the sea, orcas live and hunt together in cooperative pods, or family groups, much like a pack of wolves. They work together as they hunt. Groups of orcas cooperate to herd fish into a compact area so that they're easier to eat. They will also slap their tails onto the water's surface, causing a wave to wash prey, such as penguins or sea lions, off ice floes and into the water. Sometimes, a pod of whales will join forces to surround a larger animal, such as a blue whale. They chase, bite, and wear it down until it becomes a meal.
Orcas' teeth, numbering about 45 and each measuring about 3 inches (7.6 centimetres) long, are shaped for ripping and tearing prey. Orcas do not chew their food. They can swallow small seals and sea lions whole. The prey easily slides down the orcas' throats. Bigger prey is eaten in chunks. Ocras' backs are black and their stomachs are white. Animals looking down on an orca from above, such as a seal on an ice floe, might not see it because the whale's dark back blends with the water below. On the other hand, the whale's white underside blends with the light streaming down into the sea from the surface, making it hard to be spotted from below. The colour pattern of orcas help them sneak up on their prey and attack them. With orcas camouflaged so well, those prey fish, penguins or seals are likely to miss the danger heading their way, as the killer whale once again proves it is the oceans' superbly designed hunter.
Which of the following statements is true?

A Orcas have three canine teeth, each measuring 7.6 cm.
B Blue whales are the ocean's top predators.
C An average sized orca eats about two hundred and twenty seven kilograms of food every day.
D None of these

Yes. What you say is correct but the word 'unique" is pronounced as 'yoo-neek'. So the pronunciation does not have the sound of the vowel 'u'. I have elaborated it below: AN Umbrella A University In the case above, the word 'umbrella' is pronounced with the sound of the vowel 'U'. While the pronunciation of the word 'university' is done in a distinct manner as mentioned before. I hope I have been helpful in clearing your doubts.
