Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Travelling was always something Peter had wanted to do and as he got older he began to plan. He decided that he must leave his home in Asia to get a good sense of the world. He thought that he should probably try and visit each continent. He sat down in front of his laptop and listed the continents: Oceania, Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica. Some of the continents he knew, but he was shocked to see that the closest continent he could visit was Africa. He had thought that it was a long way away.
It looked like planning this would be fun. When he looked at different maps of the world it turned out that there were different quantities and names of the continents which confused him a lot. Before he continued he asked his father's advice about how many continents there were. His father told him that for them, in their schools, they were taught that there were 7 continents. And although some other countries taught that there were 6 or 5, and that he should stick to what he understood for this project of his.
For the purpose of travel, Peter decided that he would use the system he knew, and this meant he would have to visit 6 more continents. He looked at the maps of the world and decided that he could go and visit his uncle in Africa and then his sister and her family in Europe really easily. He took this idea to his father who agreed with him although he thought it would be simpler to go east to Oceania. Peter knew that this was just because Oceania was where his father had always wanted to go because his brother lived there.

Which continent was closet to where Peter lived?

AEurope
BAsia
CAfrica
DSouth America

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
'10 Downing Street' is the official abode and the office of the first Lord of the Treasury and hence the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The headquarters of Her Majesty's Government, it is situated on Downing Street in the City of Westminster, in London. Number 10 is perhaps the most famous address in the United Kingdom and one of the most widely recognised houses in the world. Almost three hundred years old, the building contains about one hundred rooms.
There is a private residence on the third floor and a kitchen in the basement. The other floors contain offices and numerous conference, reception, sitting and dining rooms where the Prime Minister works and meets with and entertains government ministers, national leaders and foreign dignitaries. There is an interior courtyard and behind, a terrace overlooking a half acre garden. Adjacent to St. James Park, Number 10 is near the Palace of Westminster, the Houses of Parliament, and the Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the British Monarch.
Originally Number 10 consisted of three houses that were offered to Robert Walpole as he was given the office of first Lord of Treasury. There after Walpole commissioned William Kent to join the three houses together. It is this larger house that is today
known as 'Number 10 Downing Street. The arrangement was not an immediate success. Despite its size and convenient location near Parliament, only a few early Prime Ministers lived there. Costly to maintain, neglected, and run-down, Number 10 was close to being razed several times. Nevertheless, Number 10 survived and became linked with many statesmen and events in British history. In 1985, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said Number 10 had become "one of the most precious jewels in the national heritage".
How many rooms are there in '10 Downing Street'?

AThree hundred rooms
BA private residence
CAbout one hundred rooms
DNone of these
