A/ Read the passage and decide if the following statements are true (T) or false (F).

Ruth Lawrence made history yesterday when she came a clear first out of the 530 candidates who sat the entrance exam for St. Hugh’s College, Oxford. The all-women’s college is likely to offer her a scholarship. Ruth sat three three-hour papers – Algebra and Geometry, Calculus, Probability and Statistic; and Math, Pure and Applied. Ruth has never been to school. Her father, Harry Lawrence, a computer consultant, gave up his job when Ruth was five to educate her at home. Her mother, who also works in computers, is the family breadwinner. Besides Mathematics, Ruth also enjoyed English, History, Geography, Nature Study and other subjects. She began to read at four and started academic subjects at five. Because she does not go to school, Ruth has not mixed much with other children. She enjoys serious conversations with adults. She works harder than other children, and concentrates on what she enjoys, principally Mathematics. If she does well at the college, Ruth expects to take a further degree and eventually hopes to become a research professor in Mathematics – an ambition she may achieve while still in her teens.

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE HOLIDAY

My most memorable experience happened three months ago when I went to the south of France with my husband. We went by boat and car. We were there for two weeks and we stayed in a small hotel. We had a very good time. We sunbathed and read books. We went to the beach every day. We visited a lot of historical places. The weather was lovely and the food in France was wonderful.

But on the last day our car broke down. We didn’t speak French and we needed to get to Boulogne to get the boat to England. Luckily, we met another Englishman, Simon Pike. He was very friendly. He had a car and he took us to Paris to get the train to Boulogne.

When we arrived at the station, Simon said, “don’t worry. I speak a little French.” He ran to the ticket office and bought us two tickets. He asked a guard in French, “Excuse me! Which platform for Boulogne?” “Platform 7,” said the guard, ‘but hurry! It leaves in two minutes.”

We ran to platform 7 and got on the train. We said goodbye and thanked Simon. “You’re welcome,” he said. “Have a good trip!” The train left, and we started to talk to an Italian tourist.

“What time do we arrive in Boulogne?” we asked. “Boulogne?” he said. “I think you have a problem. This train goes to Toulouse.”
