Ai Ai, a chimpanzee at the Qinling Zoo in Xi'an, China, was forced to stop smoking cigarettes in 2005 after she began the habit following the loss of her mate.

Snails eat with their tongues --- which are covered with sharp, tearing teeth --- similar to a chain saw!

"Done yet?" The cathedral of St. Pierre in Beauvais, France, was under construction for 350 years but was never completed!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) Why did the chimpanzee start to smoke cigarettes?

(2) What kind of tongues do snails have?

(3) How many years was the cathedral under construction?
