< TASK 1 > Read the articles (1) to (3). And figure out which article they come from. Answer A, B, or C.

(1) A man at the university of Wales at Bangor is able to read the emotions on people's faces, --- despite being totally blind!

(2) In the 1800's, New York farmer Phineas Dodd's barn was struck by lightning. He sued his local minister and his congregation --- because they had prayed for rain!

(3) Viking warriors didn't actually wear horned helmets into battle! Horns were only worn in religious ceremonies as they would've been disastrously inconvenient in combat.
