A 58–year–old grandmother in Massachusetts won one of the biggest prizes in U.S. history—$294 million. If she had taken the 26–year payout, Doris Stevens would have received $11 million a year for 26 years, before taxes. Mrs. Stevens decided to take the lump sum payment. People who take the lump sum get paid within 60 days, but their total payment is reduced by almost 40 percent. Mrs. Stevens' lump sum was $168 million, but luckily, she didn't have to pay federal tax on her winnings. What is Mrs. Stevens going to do with her windfall? "Well, the first thing I'm going to do is to help out my children and grandchildren, of course. Second, I hope to revolutionise the housecleaning industry." A housecleaner for her entire life, Mrs. Stevens says she's going to establish a National Housecleaner Helper Corporation to help other cleaners open their own companies. Her corporation would focus on giving money to various people and research firms to develop more efficient and more powerful housecleaning solvents and tools.
"When was the last time you saw something new in housecleaning?" Mrs. Stevens asked. "They keep claiming they've invented new cleaning products that remove any and all blemishes, but they still haven't invented a product that removes an ordinary ballpoint ink stain from your ordinary white shirt. This industry needs some new products. I hope to revolutionise the cleaning world, so that my 'sisters' will have an easier time of it in the future. We've all spent too much time on our hands and knees. If men had to do housecleaning, you know that they'd be inventing more powerful products every week."

Socks are an item of clothing that we commonly wear on our feet. We might wear them to keep our feet warm or to stop them rubbing when we walk, or simply as a fashion accessory. Today, most socks are knitted with natural or synthetic fibres and can often be brightly coloured or patterned. However, humans have worn socks for millennia and they have evolved during this time.
The first known 'socks' are probably those worn by the ancient Greeks, who were wearing socks made of matted animal hair in the 8th century B.C. By the 2nd century A.D., the Romans were wearing woven socks that were sewn up and pulled over the foot. Although perhaps used by only the elite, they were used in much the same way as we do when we put on our socks. The oldest pair of knitted socks reported was found in Denmark as is thought to be from 1500 B.C. However, the oldest pair that still exists, dates back to the 3rd - 6th century A.D. and was found in Egypt. This pair of socks has an unusual division so that the toes could be separated, and the socks worn with sandals. Today, most socks keep the toes together, but some designed specially to separate toes. These toe-separating socks are popular amongst long distance runners as they can prevent blisters forming easily and allow more area to circulate around the toes.
Long socks, which are also called stockings, became popular in the 12th century across Europe. These were tied up at the top around the knee area. However, in the 16th century the knitting machine was invented and the fabric that was knitted could have a denser weave, meaning that these garters were no longer required. Generally, these would have been worn by men and not women. They can be seen wearing them in portraits of the time whereas women would wear floor length dresses. As time passed and fashions changed, these long socks became more commonly worn by women. It was only when men's trousers became long, and their socks shortened, that socks became socks and were no longer referred to as stockings. The invention in America of nylon in 1938 made it possible to make socks that were more stretchy and comfortable, so now, socks are often made with a nylon blend.
Depending on where you live in the world, socks may be more or less popular to wear. This might be related to the climate, or the fashion. Their design and length also vary from place to place. In Japan, decorated socks adorned with cartoon characters are popular and sold in shops dedicated to selling socks and only socks. There are also ways to modernise your sock wearing and sock buying. Now, you can have a constant supply of new socks selected for you and delivered to your home. This 'sockscription' is for those with busy lifestyles and not enough time to waste on sock buying.

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.
Which paragraph explains what happens when a person is bitten by a snake?

A 1
B 2
C 3
D 4
