At the Great Ape Trust near Des Moines, Iowa, Sue Savage-Rumbaugh studies bonobo chimpanzees that are being raised to understand and use human language!

"It's baaack!" Christopher Linton-Smith, Steve Glum and Tim Arnheim have taken turns giving each other the same fruitcake as a Christmas gift for the last 20 years!

The giant water lily of South America grows leaves that span 6 feet and are buoyant enough to support a child!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) Why is Dr. Sue raising bonobo chimpanzees?

(2) How long have Christopher and two of his friends taken turns giving each other the same fruitcake as a Christmas gift?

(3) How big and how buoyant are leaves of the giant water lily?
