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

(1) 11-year-old Kelsey Nolan of Ardwick, England, sent a letter to the head of the Royal Navy, asking if she could borrow a helicopter for a school project --- and he agreed!

(2) Magnetite, a magnetic iron compound, appears in animals all over the world --- in bird brains, in bees, and in fish --- forming a living compass!

(3) Truman Duncan of Cleburne, Texas, lost his legs when a train ran over him on June 25, 2006, but he remained conscious long enough to make an emergency cell phone call for help!
