Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    One of the best series on TV at the moment is Penguin Island on Tuesday evenings at 7.30. Next Tuesday will be the last one. If you didn’t see the first five programmes, you can still watch them online, but hurry! It’s a brilliant series about Phillip Island, an island off the coast of Australia which is home to thousands of Little Penguins. These penguins are very small – the smallest in the world and they make their homes and lay their eggs a few hundred metres from the beach. Every day the adult penguins go to sea and swim hundreds of miles to find fish. Then they bring it back for their babies (called chicks) every night.These penguins only live in one or two places in Australia and New Zealand so it is very important to protect them. A few years ago, there were holiday houses for Australians on the island which were too close to the penguins. So the government started a penguin protection plan – they bought all the houses and then knocked them down.​Now people can come to the island, watch the penguins on the beach and hopefully want to help them. When the penguins return with their food, they have to walk the few hundred metres to their homes. This walk is called the Penguin Parade! So, people can still enjoy watching the penguins, but they don’t live close to them anymore. In the last programme we will learn about Tilda, a young female chick. Will her parents come back with food or will she have to go and swim for the first time to find some? Watch on Tuesday to see what happens. I love this programme and I’m sure you will, too!

    • A.

      In Australia.

    • B.

      Near the sea.

    • C.

      On the beach.

    Correct Answer
    B. Near the sea.
    Explanation
    Penguins are known to inhabit regions close to the sea, such as coastal areas and islands. They rely on the ocean as a source of food and for their survival. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that penguins live near the sea rather than in Australia or on the beach.

     The penguins leave their chicks alone all day...........

    • A.

      To look for food.

    • B.

      Because they like swimming.

    • C.

      Because people come to the island.

    Correct Answer
    A. To look for food.
    Explanation
    The penguins leave their chicks alone all day to look for food. Penguins are known to be excellent swimmers and spend a significant amount of time in the water hunting for fish, squid, and krill. Leaving their chicks alone allows the adult penguins to dive deep into the ocean and search for food to sustain themselves and their young. This behavior ensures that the chicks are not endangered by the potentially dangerous and challenging hunting expeditions undertaken by their parents.

      To build new ones.

    Correct Answer
    B. To keep the penguins safe.
    Explanation
    The Australian government knocked down the holiday houses to keep the penguins safe. This suggests that the holiday houses were posing a threat to the penguins in some way, either by disturbing their habitat or endangering their well-being. By removing the holiday houses, the government aims to create a safer environment for the penguins to thrive.
