Read the text and choose the best answer to fill in the blanks.

I was raised on a farm in a remote village in the 1950s. The winter months were endless and everything was covered in snow. I was always for the warmer weather to come. When spring arrived, everything came alive- flowers would bloom and the animals would come out of hibernation. I would follow the bear tracks and search for them. Once, however, I an angry mother bear who saw me as a threat. At the sight of the bear, I did what my father had told me. I stood still until she stopped growling and walked away. The trick was effective, but looking back now, I realized that the situation was more serious than I thought at the time. By the age of twelve, I had lots of camping experience, as I used to go camping with my dog on my school holidays. We would spend days the forest, catching fish for dinner, looking at the frogs and the of birds and the insects hopping up and down on the surface of the water. Of course, this was possible only during the warm months. When the autumn came, everything went quiet, which was quite usual in those parts. It wasn’t long before the animals disappeared, the birds flew south and the snow took over. The place became deserted once again.

Read the passage and answer the questions.

Walt Whitman, born in New York in 1819, was one of American’s unusual literary figures. As an individualist, he rambled through the countryside seeing people and places and making them his own. His experiences in earning a living were varied: at times he was a printer, a teacher, a carpenter, a nurse, and a newspaper editor. He was a big-hearted man, open and accepting. He gave freely of his time by caring for the wounded during the Civil War. Though he lived in the city, he often spent time in the country, developing his strong sense of nature, which carried through to his poems. In 1855, he collected the verses he had written, and published them in one thin volume, “Leaves of Grass” a book which he revised and rewrote all the rest of his life. The book was ridiculed by some poets and generally ignored by the others, probably because his verse forms were not traditional. He had felt that it was necessary to achieve a new poetic form in order to communicate his views. His reputation didn’t grow until after his death, and it reached a high point in the 1920s. Since then, Whitman’s style has greatly influenced modern poets.
