Section II – LANGUAGE IN USE (40 points)

For questions 21 – 40, read the text below. Decide which word or phrase (A), (B), (C) or (D) best fits each space. There is an example at the beginning (00). Example: 00 – (C)

I recently wrote a book involving a 00 - (C) chaotic pub crawl around the major battlefields of the English Civil War. I won’t cheapen and belittle myself by naming the book in 21 to sell more copies, but it is 22 now in all good bookshops. I thought I’d tell you about my brush with death while researching the book. I was run 23 in possibly the lowest-speed road accident of all time.

On that particular day I was very excited to 24 Newbury Berkshire, England (and it’ll be a long time before you hear somebody 25 that again), scene of some historically significant Civil War 26 back in the 1600s. Upon parking at the side of a busy road, I let Peter and his dog Dave (my sidekicks throughout my travels) 27 the car and watched them run into the nearest pub.

I stood and 28 my surroundings. This busy, built-up, traffic-choked area looked very little 29 a bloody battlefield now, but I was delighted to 30 a huge Civil War monument on the opposite side of the road. So delighted in fact, that I stepped straight out in front of the oncoming traffic without a useful thought in my head. The car that hit me didn’t stand a chance. Fortunately for me it 31 by a lady of advanced years at a speed approaching three miles per hour.

I waved an apology to her for having the 32 to drive so slowly on a major highway. By the beeps coming from behind her, I guessed this appreciation 33.

I carried on across the road, aware the beeps were getting louder. The elderly lady had 34 her vehicle in the middle of the road and was walking towards me at an alarmingly slow pace. I called that I was OK, but she kept on coming. Finally she 35 me and looked me square in the face. “Oooh, sorry love, I thought you 36 Jean Muckridge’s boy! You’re not a Muckridge, are you?” “No,” I replied, aware that car doors were now opening and that a great many angry people were heading my way. Suddenly and 37, the area reminded me of the battlefield I’d originally been hoping for. “I’m really sorry 38 out like that. You really should go back to your car you know.”

She waved my suggestion aside. “Well,” she said, “I 39 my life on you being a Muckridge.” I reassured her I wasn’t and she finally turned back towards her car. Then, just when I thought my 40 was over, she called over her shoulder, “All you Muckridges are stupid idiots. Stepping out like that! Pah.”
