Первый  этап Республиканской олимпиады  школьников по английскому языку для 9 класса

 

 

I.    READING

1)Match the texts with the titles. One title is extra.

1.     Shopping in comfort.

2.     Professional sport.

3.     First computers.

4.     Digging for the past.

5.     Risky sport.

6.     Difficult task.

7.     Shopping from home.

8.     New users.

 

A. Another generation of computer fans has arrived. They are neither spotty schoolchildren nor intellectual professors, but pensioners who are learning computing with much enthusiasm. It is particularly interesting for people suffering from arthritis as computers offer a way of writing nice clear letters. Pensioners have now discovered the Internet and at the moment they are the fastest growing user group.

B. Substantial remains of an octagonal Roman bath house, probably reused as a Christian baptistery, have been uncovered during a student training excavation near Faversham in Kent. The central cold plunge pool was five meters across, and stood within a structure which also had underfloor  heating and hot pools, probably originally under a domed roof.

C. For many years now, mail-order shopping has served the needs of a certain kind of customer. Everything they order from a catalogue is delivered to their door. Now, though, e-mail shopping on the Internet has opened up even more opportunities for this kind of shopping.

D. Potholing is a dull name for a most interesting and adventurous sport. Deep underground, on the tracks of primitive men and strange animals who have adapted to life without light, finding unusual landscapes and underground lakes, the potholer lives an exciting adventure. You mustn’t forget, though, that it can be quite dangerous. Without the proper equipment you can fall, get injured or lost.

E.  Not many people know that, back in the fifties, computers were very big, and also very slow. They took up complete floors of a building, and were less powerful, and much slower than any of today’s compact portable computers. At first, the data they had to process and record was fed in on punched-out paper; later magnetic tape was used, but both systems were completely inconvenient.

F.  A group of university students from Brazil have been given the job of discovering and locating all the waterfalls in their country. It is not easy because very often the maps are not detailed. The students have to remain in water for long periods of time. Every day they cover a distance of 35 to 40 kilometers through the jungle, each carrying 40 kilos of equipment.

G. Shopping centers are full of all kinds of stores. They are like small, self-contained towns where you can find everything you want. In a large centre shoppers can find everything they need without having to go anywhere else. They can leave their cars in the shopping centre car park and buy everything in a covered complex, protected from the heat, cold or rain.

 

 

2)Read the text and answer the questions A8-A12

Daniel Defoe

Daniel Defoe is the originator of the realistic novel. He was also a brilliant journalist and in many ways the father of modern English periodicals. He founded and paved the way for many magazines (The Revue, The Spectator).

Daniel Defoe was born in London: his father, a butcher, was wealthy enough to give his son a good education. Daniel was going to become a priest, but he wanted to become wealthy. His wish was never fulfilled: Daniel went bankrupt several times and was always deep in debt. The only branch of business in which he proved successful was journalism and literature. When Daniel was about 23 he started writing pamphlets on the question of the hour. He started writing pamphlets praising King William III who was supported by the Whig Party. No matter whose defense his brilliant pamphlets were written in, their irony was so subtle that the opponent didn’t understand it at first. But as soon as his enemies realized the real character of the pamphlets, Daniel was sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment. It was a cruel punishment and when they came to set him free, people carried him on their shoulders. This was the climax of his political career and also the end of it. In 1719 he tried his hand at another kind of literature, fiction, and wrote Robinson Crusoe, the novel he is now best known for. After the book was published Daniel became famous and rich and was able to pay his creditors in full. Other novels that Daniel wrote were also very much talked about during his lifetime, but we don’t hear much about them now. These novels include Captain Singelton (1720) and Moll Flanders (1722).
