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

(1) "Eek! Eek!" During late 2004 in Peru, a large number of rabid vampire bats attacked over 1,100 people, killing 11 children.

(2) "Progeria" causes premature aging in children, leaving them wrinkled and bald a few years after birth. The disease is very rare --- just over 100 cases have been reported since its 1886 discovery!

(3) "Get witch - quick!" The stagnant economy of Zimbabwe has driven away many of its university-educated doctors and now most of the country has returned to visiting traditional witch doctors!
