A role model’s responsibilities
When Mo Farah ______ (Варіанти:beat, won, scored, came) gold medals in both the 5,000 metres and the 10,000 metres at the 2012 Olympic Games, he became an instant hero and role model to many young people in Britain.
Mo was born in Somalia but he _______ (Варіанти:arrived, reached, left, came) to England at the age of 8. He was soon winning titles and _______ (Варіанти:getting, winning, setting, making) new records, including running the fastest ever 3,000 metres by a British runner in January 2009. His performances improved, and he ______ (Варіанти:broke, got, did, gained) his own record just a few months later.
However, in early 2014, he __________ (Варіанти:downloaded, interacted, posted, followed) photos of himself on one of the social media sites, ________ (Варіанти:throwing, catching, jumping, kicking) into the sea from 30-metre high cliffs. Critics said that young people who __________ (Варіанти:looked, saw, viewed, considered) up to him might copy his behaviour. Many young people have been killed or have suffered spinal __________ (Варіанти:conditions, illnesses, diseases, injuries) and become permanently disabled doing similar things because the water wasn’t as deep as they had thought.
However, __________ (Варіанти:viewers, fans, spectators, audience) of the runner were quick to defend him. They argued that his profile page was not widely viewed, and the pictures hadn’t ____ (Варіанти:made, got, come, gone) viral. They said that it was the newspapers who had drawn attention to the photos by printing them, and they were therefore far more irresponsible than Mo Farah.
Read the extract from a novel. Choose the answer (A, B, C or D) which you think best fits according to the text.
The lights went off in the studio. Almost immediately, the tension in the air seemed to disappear. Some of the actors stood and chatted together. Others stood alone, stretching their aching muscles. The extras left the area quickly, no longer a part of the team, unappreciated and unwanted. Any who stayed hoping for a kind word of praise or advice were sent running by the security men who were there to protect the studio’s stars from anything that might disturb them.
Only one actor noticed this and felt guilt and anger at the same time. Dan had worked his way up from being an extra himself. Anger because he remembered the way he had been treated and, although he wasn’t close to the extras he was working with, he hated it happening to them. Guilt because he wasn’t brave enough to speak out. He was still very much a junior member of the cast and he knew he could be sent back to where he came from if he upset his more famous colleagues.
As he stood, lost in thought, he noticed Elmira Ray, the highest-paid star in the studio and one of the romantic leads in this movie. He smiled and made a friendly remark about the difficulties she’d had getting one of her scenes right. Elmira glared at him with hatred and turned away to where the director was deep in discussion with the producer. Elmira’s screaming voice was very unlike anything her fans had ever heard but it was well-known by all who worked with her. Her message was clear. She wanted Dan off the set, off the movie and, if possible, out of Hollywood. The director and producer exchanged knowing glances. They disliked Elmira intensely but they also knew how much she was worth to the studio. Whatever their feelings for Dan, if Elmira didn’t want to work with him, he would have to go.
They called Dan over. They didn’t have to say anything. One look was enough for Dan. He’d been in the business long enough to know how things worked. ‘Oh well,’ he thought, ‘It has been fun while it lasted.’ He knew he could ask around at the other studios for work but his heart wasn’t in it anymore. He disliked the work, he disliked the people and he hated living in Los Angeles. He would go to the party that he had been invited to earlier that week but he would spend the time having fun, not desperately trying to impress people and begging for work. Tomorrow, he’d pack and head back east to New York.
At eight o’clock that evening, wearing jeans rather than the usual dark suit, he arrived at an already packed villa high in Beverly Hills. As he walked in, he noticed Elmira. She glanced at him with no sign of recognition. He was no-one important. Nothing to do with her or her life. She passed him and moved on, searching for more famous faces to spend her time with. Suddenly Dan knew what he had to do.
