READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
A zoo employee was bitten recently by a large poisonous snake called an African puff adder. He was trying to put the snake into a bag so that it could be moved to a new snake house. The snake handler was wearing thick gloves and thick boots, but the adder still bit him in his arm. The handler squeezed the snake's neck tightly, forcing the snake to withdraw its fangs. He then put the snake into the bag and tied the bag.
He called the emergency services to report that the adder had bitten him; when doctors arrived at the new snake house, they could not find the snake or man. They started walking back toward the old snake house. A few moments later, they found the handler lying unconscious on a pathway. Curiously, the bag with the snake still in it was covering the man's head and part of his chest.
The paramedics handed the bag to another zoo employee, who delivered the snake to its new home. They then transported the handler to the city hospital. Later, a hospital spokesman said that the handler was in good condition. He said that viper bites can cause a lot of damage in the immediate area of the bite if not treated properly and quickly, but it looked like this man would recover completely.
The zoo director said that this particular adder had a nasty reputation. This was the fifth time in six years that it had managed to bite someone. Fortunately, the previous victims also recovered fully. Although the penultimate one now has a fear of snakes which is why the new handler that was bitten was working with the snakes. In the future, the director joked, they might call the bomb disposal unit to handle the snake.

Read the following stories and poetry and answer the questions choosing the most appropriate option :
My mother saw a Dancing Bear
My mother saw a dancing bear By the schoolyard, a day in June The keeper stood with chain and bar And whistle-pipe and played a tune. The bruin lifted up its head. And lifted up its dusty feet, And all the children laughed to see It caper in the summer heat. They watched as for the Queen it died They watched it march. They watched it halt. They heard the keeper as he cried, “Now, roly-poly! Somersault” And then my mother said, there came The keeper with a begging-cup, The bear with burning coat of fur, Shaming the laughter to a stop. They paid a penny for the dance, But what they saw was not the show; Only, in bruin’s aching eyes, Far-distant forests, and the snow.
–Charles Causley

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.
Why are the orcas referred to as wolves of the sea?

A Orcas live and hunt together in cooperative pods.
B Orcas work together to herd fish into a compact area.
C At times, pods of whales join forces to surround a larger animal; they chase, bite and wear it down.
D All of these
