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

(1) Michael Garton was paralyzed in a fall down Norway's Troll Wall, the tallest vertical rock face in Europe, but survived because a tourist spotted him through a telescope from several miles away and reported the fall to authorities!

(2) William Topaz McGonagall (1825-1902) of Scotland, was often considered the world's worst poet, even by his own publisher, yet his writings are still in print a century after his death!

(3) "You are soooooooo good-looking!" Tom Greaves built a "Compliment Machine" which he placed on a street corner in Washington, D.C. It dispensed words of encouragement to passersby!
