people do not know the word sun.
Everybody lives in a Warren. A Warren is a very big city under the ground. Think of
the Paris metro or the London tube, but a thousand times bigger. And a Warren is not a
transport system; people live there all the time. They are there all their lives, from the
day they are born to the day they die. People must live in a Warren. They cannot leave
their city under the ground. Millions and millions of people live in these Warrens. There
are nine Warrens in the world and Warren Number 5 is the biggest.

STUDY CLAIMS AGATHA CHRISTIE HAD ALZHEIMERS
An in-depth analysis of Agatha Christie's novels has suggested that the much-loved
author of more than 80 mysteries was suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Academics at
the University of Toronto studied a selection of Christie's novels written between the
ages of 28 and 82, counting the numbers of different words, indefinite nouns and
phrases used in each. They found that the vocabulary size of the creator of Poirot and
Miss Marple decreased sharply as she neared the end of her life, by 15 to 30%, while
repetition of phrases and indefinite word usage (something, thing, anything) in her
novels increased significantly. "We found statistically significant drops in vocabulary, and
increases in repeated phrases and indefinite nouns in 15 detective novels from The
Mysterious Affair at Styles to Postern of Fate," said the academics, Dr Ian Lancashire
from the English department and computer scientist Dr Graeme Hirst. "These language
effects are recognized as symptoms of memory difficulties associated with Alzheimer's
disease."
The most abrupt decline was seen in a novel Christie wrote aged 81, Elephants Can
Remember. The book showed, they said, 30% fewer word types than Destination
Unknown, which she wrote aged 63, 18% more repeated phrases, and almost three
times as many indefinite words. Lancashire told Canadian current affairs magazine
Macleans that the title of the novel, a tweaking of the proverb "elephants never forget",
also gives a clue that Christie was defensive about her declining mental powers, while
the protagonist is unable to solve the mystery herself, and is forced to call on the aid of
Hercule Poirot. Although Christie, whose books have sold over two billion copies
worldwide, was never diagnosed with dementia, the authors of the study conclude that
the changes in her writing are consistent not with normal ageing, but with Alzheimer's
disease. "These signs, especially indefinite word usage, are present in her writing from
her early 70s," they said.

III. Reading comprehension
Read the following text.
STUDYING IN THE UK: TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS
On degree and postgraduate courses, you do not have to attend all your classes all
the time, and you have much more time to study on your own. Your
instructors/teachers/lecturers will not always provide you with answers. Instead, they will
show you ways to find the answers yourself. You will not always be dealing with facts,
and there will not always be right or wrong answers. Classroom teaching may be much
less formal than you may be used to. You will be encouraged to ask questions, join in
discussions, and even argue with tutors. The teaching and learning methods you are
most likely to encounter include lectures, seminars and tutorial, and research.
Lectures are the most formal, traditional teaching method, whereas seminars are
small discussion groups of about 8 to 16 students who join their lecturer or tutor to
discuss a particular topic and exchange ideas. Seminars usually last one to two hours.
Unlike lectures, attendance is often obligatory. If you are in a postgraduate research
programme, you will spend little time in lectures, seminars and tutorials. Instead, most
of the time will be spent on independent research. When your research is complete, you
write a dissertation about it. A typical dissertation should explain what you set out to
learn and why, how you conducted your research, what you discovered through your

research, and what conclusions you have reached. This stage can take several months
for a Masters degree, or a year or so for a doctorate.
