SAMPLE PASSAGE FOR LISTENING SKILLS: No one, it seems, is very fond of a rat. Except another rat perhaps, and as the rat population of the world exceeds the human one, we are told, there is a problem. City dwellers or villagers alike, we are never more than thirty metres from a rat; well that s what they say. It s a sobering thought if you remember that rats spread diseases, sometimes terrible diseases like bubonic plague for example. All of which makes it doubly unfortunate that while we don t like rats, rats evidently do like us; they like our houses, our barns, our warehouses and granaries; they like the warmth and shelter we provide; above all, they like sharing, i.e., stealing, the food we eat. I know that in India there are some temples where the rat is welcome, indeed revered, but its devotees are well outnumbered by those who think it a pest. How do we get rid of them if they become so numerous as to constitute a real menace, even to life and limb? It isn t easy, for though we may exterminate a few, their powers of rapid reproduction are legendary, and they say the female rat makes the best mother in the world. Poison them? Gas them? Well you can try but the modern rat has become virtually immune to these methods and, in any case, the disposal of dead carcasses, down rat runs or under floorboards is itself a difficult business which, if neglected, leads to thoroughly unpleasant odours and yet more fear of disease. Over the centuries and in different lands throughout the world, many different remedies have been tried, and usually found wanting. Morocco for instance dealt with its plague of rats by importing thousands of domestic cats mainly from England. But though cats and certain dogs, like terriers, might keep numbers down, they will never totally rid a place of what so many regard as vermin. One old gentleman resorted to rat psychology. The rat, he said, is a wonderfully clean animal and if it can, will preserve itself and its surroundings in as clean a state as possible. So, he argued, why not make it impossible for a rat to stay clean? the answer, he thought, was tar, for rats dislike it more perhaps than anything else, for once it gets on to their fur, they find it most difficult to remove. Adapted from Rats by PJO Taylor. __________________________________________________________________________________ ISC Class XI 2012
