Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
It was a glorious sunny day in southern France and three friends, Jimmy, Benoit and Pierre, were walking to school. Jimmy hadn't done his homework and was trying to persuade the other boys that it would be a good idea not to go to school. Although the other boys had dutifully done theirs, Benoit did not think his was very good, and Pierre loved being out in the sunshine and really did not want to spend all morning in a boring maths lesson.
When the three boys reached the small footbridge that crossed their local river, Jimmy waved a stick in the air and suggested that they stop there and play a game. They could decide to go to school a bit later and, although they would probably be disciplined, they would at least miss some of the lessons. Jimmy also hoped that he might get away with not handing his homework in, although he did not share this with his friends. Benoit and Pierre agreed to this plan and started to look on the path for suitable sticks.
After a few moments the boys examined each other's sticks. Jimmy had selected his first, when he proposed the idea, and his was about 10 cm long and quite straight. Benoit's was shorter, had a kink in it and a leaf growing from one end. Pierre's was the longest and also had several branches. When they were satisfied that all sticks were suitably distinguishable they dangled them over the side of the bridge and counted to three. On the count of three, they dropped the sticks so that, when they hit the torrent of water below, they would flow under the bridge. The boys then ran to the other side and waited, peering down to see which one would emerge first. On this first round of the game, Benoit's stick came through before the others which meant he won. Strangely, Jimmy's completely disappeared, and they presumed it must have got stuck or sunk. They liked this game a lot, no skill was needed but they could still be competitive and experimental with the sticks they chose. They played it for a few hours and completely missed maths class.

The boys liked the game because ___________.

Ait was not easy and there was no room for error
Bit meant they could miss school
Cit involved trial and error
Dthey had to be skilled and competitive

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
There are two species of elephant seals, the northern and southern. Northern elephant seals can be found in California and Baja California, though they prefer to frequent offshore islands rather than the North American mainland.
Southern elephant seals live in sub- Antarctic and Antarctic waters that feature brutally cold conditions but are rich in the fish, squid, and other marine foods these seals enjoy. Southern elephant seals breed on land but spend their winters in the chilly Antarctic waters near the Antarctic pack ice. Do you know southern seals can dive over 4,921 feet (1,500 metres) deep and can remain submerged for up to two hours?
Southern elephant seals are the largest of all seals. Males can be over 20 feet (6 metres) long and weigh up to 8,800 pounds (4,000 kilograms). But these massive mammals with flippers aren’t called elephant seals because of their size. They take their name from their trunk like inflatable snouts.
The northern elephant seals live up to nine years whereas the southern ones can live up to 22 years. When breeding season arrives, male elephant seals define and defend territories. They collect a harem of 40 to 50 females, which are much smaller than their enormous mates. Males battle each other for dominance. Some encounters end with roaring and aggressive posturing, but many others turn into violent and bloody battles.
Sea elephants, as these seals are sometimes called, give birth in late winter to a single pup and nurse it for approximately a month. While suckling their young, females do not eat—both mother and child live off the energy stored in ample reserves of her fat. Females give birth to a single pup each year after a 11-month pregnancy.
Elephant seals migrate in search of food, spending months at sea and often diving deep to forage. They return to their rookeries in winter to breed and give birth. Though both male and female elephant seals spend time at sea, their migration routes and feeding habits differ: Males follow a more consistent route while females vary their routes in pursuit of moving prey.
Elephant seals were aggressively hunted for their oil, and their numbers were once reduced to the brink of extinction. Fortunately, populations have rebounded under legal protections.
Female seals are _________ in size compared to male seals.

Bbigger
