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

(1) Shot in the head during a robbery, Larry Taylor of Georgia then walked 2 miles so he could die at his mother's house. When he arrived he found that she had moved! Larry ultimately survived the ordeal!

(2) After one of their employees was injured while walking through a revolving door in 2004, the British Broadcasting Corp. issued a memo to its staff in Birmingham, England, telling them the proper way to do so --- without getting hurt!

(3) The largest known object ever taken from a human brain, an 8-inch survival knife, left Michael Hill with surprisingly little brain damage when it was removed!
