    Correct Answer
    A. I didn’t have an interest in science. 
    Explanation
    The answer "I didn't have an interest in science" is supported by the speaker's statement "I didn't have an interest in science" in the given text. The speaker explicitly states that they did not have an interest in science, which explains their initial lack of interest in science.

      It was badly taught.

    • C. 

      He preferred arts subjects.

    Correct Answer
    C. He preferred arts subjects.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "he preferred arts subjects." This suggests that Speaker A had a personal preference for arts subjects over science, which is why they disliked science. It implies that their interest and inclination were towards subjects related to arts rather than science.

      The science books were boring.

    • C. 

      His daughter thinks science is exciting.

    Correct Answer
    B. He didn’t attend all the science lessons.
    Explanation
    Speaker B didn't attend all the science lessons. This can be inferred from the statement that the science books were boring. If Speaker B had attended all the science lessons, they would have had a firsthand experience of the subject and would not have solely relied on the books to form an opinion. Therefore, the fact that Speaker B found the books boring suggests that they missed some of the lessons.

    Correct Answer
    C. Is passionate about science.
    Explanation
    The given answer "is passionate about science" is the most appropriate explanation for Speaker C. This is because the statement "has loved science since she was eight" implies a long-standing interest in science, while "loves science and doing magic tricks" suggests a broader range of interests. However, "is passionate about science" captures the intensity and enthusiasm that Speaker C has for the subject.

    Correct Answer
    A. Used to want to be a science teacher.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "used to want to be a science teacher." This is because the statement suggests that Speaker D had a previous desire to become a science teacher. The other options, such as always getting bad marks in science or only liking biology, do not directly relate to the statement about wanting to be a science teacher.

    Correct Answer
    C. Was quite naughty at school.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "was quite naughty at school." This can be inferred from the statement "didn't go to school but learned at home." If Speaker E didn't go to school, it implies that they were not able to be naughty at school. Therefore, the correct answer must be the opposite, indicating that Speaker E was quite naughty at school.
