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

(1) "Close call!" Although Alexander Graham Bell gets credit as inventor of the telephone, he and Elisha Gray Both applied for the patent on the same day --- just hours apart!

(2) If we kept the same body proportions as adults that we had as babies, our head would be about 8 times as heavy as it is now!

(3) The pink-flowered orchid of Yunnan, China, grows in areas with little wind and few insects, requiring it to do a 360-degree twist to pollinate itself!
