    Those remarkable pictures of
    Jambo the gorilla tenderly stroking
    and then standing guard over uncon-
    scious six year old Levan Merritt
    moved everyone who saw them---
    and surprised most people , too. (1)



    The gorilla's reputation as a killer
    is one that dies hard. (2)


    He discovered that the child had
    something on its back---a shirt. To
    Jambo that was certainly different
    and puzzling. (5)


    But neither of these things alarmed
    him. When the boy came round and
    began to cry, Jambo did no more than
    to move away, taking his family with
    him. (6)


    Jambo did not behave like that. That
    is not only an indication of his true
    nature as a gorilla. It is also a tribute
    to the skill and understanding with
    which Jersey Zoo looks after its
    gorillas and has given them, as far as
    possible, all they need to grow into a
    contented and well adjusted family. (8)

    The dominant male allowed young
    babies to crawl over him and pull
    his ears with the tolerant affection
    of a human grandfather spoiling his
    adored grandchildren. (13)
    Q) Complete the following statements.

    a. The shirt was puzzling to the gorilla because ...................... (5)
    a child looked him like his own offspring but he was not familiar with shirt.

    b. The tribute is to the skill ................................. (8)
    of the Jersey Zoo authorities and keepers who look after gorillas and understand them by providing what they need.

    d. The gorillas could think that the ............. were a possible source of danger.
    humans

    Hi Ibn,

    Your answers all look right, but there seem to be some grammar mistakes:


    c) The monsters are probably 'a myth'

    e) 'Should be ... attacked by a gorilla.'

    f) 'Regained consciousness'.

    i) 'We're a well-adjusted family'.

    Hi Ibn,

    Q2: OK
    Q3: OK
    Q4: OK
    Q5: both OK
    Q6: OK, but some grammar/punctuation mistakes:

    The writer thinks that gorillas are gentle giants, unfortunately misunderstood by humans. His thinking is based on the following facts:

    1) Gorillas, unlike other beasts, are entirely vegetarian and live in groups or families; they behave affectionately to each other.

    2) Gorillas don't attack until they feel threatened by humans or other animals. The writer tells his own experience of how a mother gorilla didn't mind her baby's climbing all over her.

    3) Films usually present these giants as offensive monsters, but it is against the true nature of gorillas, as Jumbo didn't harm a child but stroked the boy gently.

    4) The writer thinks that the reason for gorillas' occasional offensiveness is solitary confinement. They are social animals and can't live alone. They need a contented family to live a normal life. That's why sometimes those gorillas who live alone turn into neurotics and attack their keepers.

    Q7 (5?): Gorillas' behaviour towards people is very misunderstood. Because of the gorilla's size and strength, people think of them as monsters and killers. To make matters worse, film makers represent them as violent and dangerous creatures.
