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

(1) In 2002, Princess Anne of England was fined after her dog bit two children. She became the first British Royal convicted of a crime in more than 350 years!

(2) Leaving your bed unmade is good! It allows air to circulate amongst the blankets which helps kill allergy-causing dust mites.

(3) "That'll teach 'em to mess with us!" In January 2005, a New Jersey woman while trying to kill cockroaches, accidentally set her house on fire. The house was severely damaged but the cockroaches survived unharmed!
