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

(1) "Floating Furniture" William Calderwood of Peoria, Ariz., holds a patent for lighter-than-air furniture that floats against the ceiling when not in use --- freeing up space in a room!

(2) "It takes a licking..." After a leg injury, Mitch Bonham of Wales had his leg saved from amputation after his dog started licking it --- stimulating the blood flow and causing the leg to heal!

(3) Believe it or not! The only living part of the human body with no direct blood supply is the cornea. It receives all its oxygen directly from the air!
