Read the following passage and choose the correct answers to the questions.

Visitors to London are struck by the proud splendour and glamour of one of the world’s oldest capitals, admiring iconic sites like Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster and Buckingham Palace. However, visitors seeking a glimpse into the city’s everyday life should not miss Portobello Market, which is the most-visited market in London.

This vibrant market has been featured in a number of films, documentaries and best-selling books, the most famous being the film “Notting Hill” starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, which brought Portobello Market to the attention of audiences all over the world.

Portobello Market is divided into different sections selling second-hand items, clothing, jewellery, souvenirs and vegetables. The most sought-after area is devoted to antiques. Visitors may feel overwhelmed as there are over 1,000 booths manned by antique dealers from throughout England. It’s  a great fun to browse through antique cameras, watches, pottery and paintings that date back 300 years. They are sold at different prices, so it’s possible to find a few food bargains. It seems that both buyers and sellers look forward to the weekends when they can meet and escape the city’s fast pace at Portobello Market.

When tired from exploring the market, visitors can drop into the nearby food courts to savour an Indian curry, Italian pizza or sandwiches from Europe. It’s a great pleasure to drink a cappuccino while listening to street performers. These represent the lively fun of Portobello Market, offering exciting experiences that keep people coming back.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answers to the questions.

Cambridge University is considering axing compulsory written exams, allowing students to use laptops or iPads instead, after tutors complained that students' handwriting is becoming illegible. Academics say the move, which would bring an end to over  800 years of tradition, has come about because students rely too heavily on laptops in lectures, and are losing the ability to write by hand.

Dr Sarah Pearsall, a senior lecturer at Cambridge University, said handwriting is becoming a  ''lost art''  among the current generation of students. She added, ''It's increasingly hard for our examiners to read students' scripts.  Those  with illegible writing are forced to come back to their college during the summer holidays to read their answers aloud in the presence  of two university administrators. It's extraordinarily  commendable  that the University is considering reforms to its examination practices.''

Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham, said it is inevitable that universities will move to computers as handwriting  deteriorates  in the coming years. ''We have to accept the reality. Handwriting has now become an optional, not a necessary, part of education. There simply isn't the same time in the curriculum for learning elegant, beautiful handwriting. Life is so quick now.  Everybody writes as if they were  a doctor writing a prescription,'' he said. ''Handwriting is not necessary for great thought, great English, or great intelligence. Some of our finest  wordsmiths  today write using laptops, and we have to fight to preserve what is really important, such as the use of great English or great sentence structures.''

Others, however, were not very positive about the move. Tracey Trussell, a handwriting expert, urged Cambridge to ensure that students continue to write by hand. She said, ''It's vital that people continue to write by hand. Writing by hand improves memory and equates to a higher rate of comprehension and information retention.'' There is also concern that schools could follow Cambridge's example by moving away from handwriting. Dr Jane Medwell, Associate Professor of Education at the University of Nottingham, is concerned that  scrapping  handwritten exams in universities could prompt ''downward curriculum pressure'' on primary and secondary schools to follow suit.
