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

(1) "I'm here to pay my taxes!" In 1996, a French businessman used 20 tons of one-franc coins to pay over 3.7 million francs in back taxes and fees!

(2) Q: After surveying his surroundings, Johann the explorer walked one mile due south, then turned and walked one mile east, and finally turned and walked one mile north. He realized he was back where he started and was promptly eaten by a bear! What color was the Bear? "Burp!" Answer --- The bear was white. If Johann walked one mile south, then one mile east, then one mile north, and returned to his starting location, Johann started on the north pole. So it had to be a polar bear that ate him!

(3) With an asking price of at least £500 million, Prince Michael of Sealand wants to sell his private "kingdom," a former anti-aircraft platform in the North Sea!
