Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions

Aaron spelling is said to be the richest and most successful television producer in Hollywood and, in a city famous for its wealth, his wife Candy is the biggest spender. They recently paid more than 10 million for the huge house the famous American singer, Bing Crosby, used to live in. Then they had it torn down so that an even bigger, more wonderful mansion could be built. Not only will it have a more luxurious swimming pool, but there will be an indoor ice-skating rink and a private zoo as well. Will come to at least $25 million.

They say that a few years ago, on a typically warm Californian Christmas Eve, Candy had a huge amount of real snow delivered to the Spelling mansion and spread all over the green lawns so that their :"children could enjoy 'a white Christmas'.

Not long ago, Candy decided she needed a few more clothes. She had a whole fashion show flown out to her from New Yolk, along with the designer and three models. Not only did she buy the entire collection but — so the story goes at least — the bags and hats the models travelled with, as well. A lot of people in Hollywood wonder what she is going to boy next. "What more can she possibly want?" others ask.

Martin and Rebecca Granger used to teach in a tough secondary school in London. Two years ago, they moved to a small cottage in Cornwall, in the extreme south-west of England. 'We got tired of trying to make kids learn things they had no interest in,' Martin says. Martin's mother died, leaving the cottage to them. 'It was in a terrible state when we came. There were leaks in the roof. There wasn't even an indoor too. Rebecca and I have rebuilt the place with our own hands.'

It is a pleasant, small place by the sea. In their large garden they grow most of their own vegetables and keep a goat. They also make all their own clothes. 'Money is still a problem, but we've learned to get by on very little,' Rebecca says. She does some part-time teaching in a school in a village nearby. Martin paints water-colour of the wild Atlantic and the brilliant sunsets they see almost every day. He has sold a few recently.

Water Sports in Hawaii

If you enjoy water sports, Hawaii is the place for you! You can go swimming all year round in the warm water. You can go sport fishing from the shore or from a boat. If you like boats, you can go sailing, canoeing, or windsurfing. Or, you can also try some other water sports that are especially popular in Hawaii: surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Surfing is a sport which started in Hawaii many years ago. The Hawaiians called it "he'enalu," which means "to slide on a wave." If you want to try surfing, you need, first of all, to be a good swimmer. You also have to have an excellent sense of balance. You must swim out from the beach with your surfboard under your arm. When you get to where the waves begin to break, you wait for a calm moment. Then you try to stand up on the board. The wave will begin to rise under you. You must try to steer the board with your feet so you stay on top of the wave. The important thing is to keep your balance and not fall down. If you can manage this, you will have an exciting ride all the way in to the shore.

Scuba diving and snorkeling are two ways to get a close look at the beauty lying below the surface of the ocean. The waters off the Hawaiian Islands are clean, clear, and warm. They contain hundreds of kinds of colorful fish. The undersea world is made even more colorful by the coral reefs of red, gold, white, and light purple. Among these reefs there may be larger fish or sea turtles.

Scuba diving allows you to see the most interesting undersea sights. "SCUBA" means "Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus," that is, equipment for breathing and swimming around far under water. In Hawaii, you can take special courses to learn how to scuba dive. After the courses, you can get a certificate that will allow you to dive alone. Since it can be dangerous, proper instruction and great care are always necessary when you are scuba diving.

If you are less adventurous, you might try snorkeling instead of scuba diving. Less equipment is needed, just a face mask, a breathing tube (snorkel), and Hippers for your feet. It only takes a few minutes to learn how to snorkel. Although you cannot dive deep into the water, you can swim with your face below the surface. Breathing through the tube, you float on the surface and keep yourself moving with your flippers. Even from the surface like this, there will be plenty of color and beauty to see.
