    The elephant is a symbol of conservation. Due to rampant development, it is virtually impossible for them to roam without encroaching upon plantations, estates and villages.

    The evolution of sports in the modern world is an interesting one. What used to be essential skills in survival, such as running, shooting and jumping, for getting a bigger supply of food, are now skills that are tested primarily in the sports arena. Man no longer has to aim well to shoot at a deer grazing in the grassland or jump over difficult terrain in pursuit of his prey. What he does have to do now is to prove to others that he can shoot further or more accurately than the other competitors, or outrun his opponents in a race. However, what significance does sports hold for the ordinary people - people who cannot perform extraordinary feats like the sports icons of modern times? Thankfully, sports exist for the other, very vital reason. They promote health. When we engage in a sport, whether it is cycling, swimming, playing football or tennis, it helps to build up our physical as well as mental strength. When the body is strong, it means that we are able to fight off infections or illnesses, such as cold or fever, better and faster than someone who is not physically healthy.
    What helped man to survive earlier?

    A) A bigger supply of food

    B) The primary skills of present sportsmen

    Teens need to be aware that what they see and hear in music, movies and on television is not an accurate reflection of reality. Advertisements are designed to see things. Beer ads may feature happy and attractive men and women, but we never see them binge drinking, dying from alcohol poisoning, or becoming alcoholics. Parents can help their teens see through the hype and make informed decisions. The captain of the Titanic chose to steer his course at a disastrous price. Changing direction and shutting the engine was certainly a better option. But that's not to say that change is a sure way of preventing disasters. The teenage years are a time of experimenting and the need for adventure is high. We can help our teens find safe ways to explore new positive ventures through sports, outdoor activities and special interests. You have other truths to teach your teens, truths that offer ballast on a stormy sea. You may need to change directions now and then or shut your engines when an iceberg appears. After all, we don't want to repeat the mistakes of the Titanic.
    Which of the following can be inferred?

    A) Parents are influenced by advertisements.

    B) Advertisements are only meant for teenagers.

    C) The life that media depicts is unreal.
