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

(1) "Lotsa Luck?!" George Kaminski, imprisoned in Mercer, Pa., has collected over 72,000 four-leaf clovers from the prison grounds during his confinement!

(2) W. Durley Boyle of Hennepin, Ill., first elected in 1936, served 10 consecutive terms as county prosecutor --- a record in Illinois. Today, at age 92, he still works full-time in a private firm!

(3) While most other towns celebrate Christmas with a bedecked tree, officials in Claymont, Del., find and decorate the largest weed --- proclaiming it the town's Christmas weed!
