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

(1) Comic strip detective Dick Tracy is 75 years old today! He made his debut on Oct. 4, 1931!

(2) "Little Face" "Rhodent" "Flat Top" Tracy's villains were purposely created with hideous faces and weird names so they were easier to identify as the bad guys!

(3) With uncanny foresight, strip creator Chester Gould envisioned futuristic personal electronic devices and in January 1946 he introduced the 2-way wrist radio --- It was later upgraded to a 2-way wrist TV in 1964 and then to a 2-way wrist computer in 1987!
