II Reading Comprehension

You are going to read an extract from an autobiography. For questions 1-10, choose the answer (a, b, с or d) which you think fits best according to the text.

There was nothing unusual about Wellington Street, or so I thought as I was growing up. The cobbled street, one of four identical streets next to each other, was calm, apart from the occasional sound of raised voices from the pub on the corner. Everybody said hello to each other. Although rarely much more than that. It was the kind of street that in the past had covered the whole of the north-west of England, affordable housing for the workers, the kind of street that used to be the heart of a community. Now it was a relic, unchanged while the modern world went on around it.

The first time I got a sense that my childhood world was not going to remain the same forever was when a letter arrived from the local council saying that a meeting was being held locally to discuss the development of the area. I remember wondering why areas had to be developed and I asked my father. He said that people just liked changing things for the sake of it but my mum interrupted him and explained that the houses needed modernising. Even then I could see this as another move in their ongoing argument about money and location. Mum, with her keen sense of social position and always very aware of what the neighbours thought, wanted to move into a better house, which Dad took to mean a more expensive house.

The evening of the meeting came around and my dad and I went along. It had already started when we got there and one of the councillors was trying to explain the plans, although the general reaction from the audience was far from positive. I don’t remember the details, but I remember some shouting, until finally one of our neighbours stood up and said that he wasn’t giving his permission for any of it. I remember the councillor saying then, ‘We don’t need permission. We’re telling you, not asking you.’

The mood when we got home was tense. Although she tried to hide it, I think Mum was secretly quite pleased. Dad sat and frowned at the TV for a while, before Mum brought him a cup of tea. I was surprised when it was he who broke the silence after a minute or two and said, ‘There are one or two nice places up around Ladybridge.’ Mum said nothing. She just sipped her tea and looked at me and smiled.

Text

THE TRAVELS OF MARCO POLO

Marco Polo was born in Venice in 1254. He was the most famous European who visited Asia during the Middle Ages. He wrote a book about his travels. He described all the things he saw and heard. Many people read the book, but few believed what Marco Polo said. He spoke of strange people and places that nobody knew about at that time.

His father, Nicolo Polo, and his uncle were rich traders and travelled a lot. They visited Cathay (the Old name for China) and became friends with Kublai Khan, the great Mongol Emperor.

Marco was fifteen when he joined them for their next voyage. It took them more than three years to travel to the capital of the Mongol Empire. The great Kublia Khan gave them a fine welcome and they stayed in his large palace. Soon the young Marco became a great trustful friend of the Emperor. Marco quickly learned the language and customs of the Chinese because he travelled around and talked to many people.

When they finally returned to Venice their family and friends were surprised to see them again. They had been away for almost 25 years and everybody thought that they must have died a long time ago.

Not long after Marco came home pirates captured him during a battle at sea. While he was a prisoner he met a writer called Rustichello who wrote down the long story that Marco told him about his travels.

When people read that book they thought Marco had made it up. Nowadays, of course, we know that everything he wrote was true.

Marco Polo did not make any more journeys after the publication of his book but he has a place in history — he was the first European ever to travel to the East.
