    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The reading states that the most important requirements to work as a smokejumper are height and weight. This implies that these two factors play a crucial role in determining whether someone can work as a smokejumper or not. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    The statement "Only men work as smokejumpers" is incorrect because both men and women can work as smokejumpers.

    Smokejumpers stay in hotels and don’t have to worry about living in a forest.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Smokejumpers are highly trained firefighters who are specially trained to parachute into remote areas to combat wildfires. They do not stay in hotels, but rather live in remote base camps or fire camps close to the fire zones. They have to be prepared to live and work in the forest for extended periods of time, as their job requires them to be on the front lines of the fire, often in rugged and isolated environments. Therefore, the statement that smokejumpers stay in hotels and don't have to worry about living in a forest is false.

    • C.

      USA

    • D.

      England

    Correct Answer
    B. Russia
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Russia because Alexi Tishin, the smokejumper, stated that this is the best job for tough guys. Since Alexi's name sounds Russian and the statement implies a preference for tough jobs, it is reasonable to assume that Alexi comes from Russia, a country known for its tough and rugged landscapes.
