THE HUMAN SCARECROW
Being told to
ing a deckchair and a good book for the first day in a new job might not be the kind of advice you’d expect to receive from your new boss, but that’s exactly the advice Jamie Fox was given when he took up a post to help out a local farmer.
    Fox, twenty-two, a music graduate from Bangor University, uses a range of musical instruments to scare off partridges that have been destroying crops because ordinary scarecrows don’t quite seem up to the job. Despite working from 7.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. for a minimum wage, Fox,

who is saving up to finance a trip to New Zealand, is quite content with his unique position. Indeed, he’d much rather be out in the open air reading and playing instruments, he says, and time passes much quicker than sitting at home doing nothing and claiming unemployment benefit.
    Fox can do anything he likes to pass the time. As well as playing musical instruments and reading to relieve the monotony, other perks of the job include doing Sudoku puzzles, observing the wildlife and daydreaming. He does, however, need to get out of the comfort of his chair occasionally to scare the partridges off the fields. And although the work is far from lucrative, some of Jamie’s friends, including those with more generously paid jobs, are reportedly envious of his position and the fact that he spends the best part of the day doing largely as he pleases.
    His employer, farmer William Youngs, claims that he was forced to take someone on as a human scarecrow after the partridges didn’t respond to more traditional methods of frightening them away. Since losing thirty acres worth of crops to the birds at a cost of thousands of pounds, Youngs has tried a variety of approaches to protect his livelihood. Now, however, he is happy with the solution and claims that Jamie’s presence in the fields is proving very effective and making a real difference.
Question 31: Jamie Fox’s plans include________
A. becoming a farmer. B. earning more money. C. joining a band. D. travelling a
oad.
Question 32: What is true about Jamie’s job?
A. He gets uncomfortable.    B. He doesn’t need to move.
C. He makes a lot of noise.    D. He has replaced another person.
Question 33: Mr Youngs decided to employ Jamie because________
A. he can pay him a low wage. B. he wants to help with the problem of unemployment
C. he considered Jamie a good worker. D. he lost lots of crops previously.
Question 34: Jamie’s friends are envious because of________
A. the fact he enjoys what he is doing.  B. the hours he works.
C. the money he earns.    D. the nature of his work.
Question 35: Jamie Fox is happy with his job because________
A. he never gets bored.   B. he has plenty of free time during the day.
C. he uses his educational background. D. he thinks it is better than being out of work.
Question 36: The phrase “up to the job” is closest in meaning to________
A. good enough to do the job   B. over-consuming
C. unable to fulfill it     D. unsuitable for the job
Question 37: Which word is the synomym with “lucrative”?
A. profitable  B. lu
icious   C. successful  D. glistening
 
Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the co
ect answer to each of the questions from 38 to 44.
    Entrepreneurial schoolboy Tommie Rose, made £14,000 towards his university fees by selling sweets from a 'black market' tuck shop at his school. Tommie, fifteen, bought chocolate, crisps and fizzy drinks in bulk from discount stores and sold them to fellow pupils at a competitive mark-up. For three years, he saved his £60 to £70 daily earnings towards the £9,000-a-year tuition fees for university, and has his eye on studying business at Oxford or Cam
idge.
   However, teachers at Buile Hill High School in Salford, Greater Manchester, threatened to suspend the teenager from school if he didn't shut down the unofficial tuck shop. Tommie, who lives in Salford, was suspended from his previous school for ten days for running a similar business, which he said was inspired by television shows such as Dragons' Den and The Apprentice.
  His parents, Gary, thirty-three, an office worker, and Tracy, also thirty-three, a gym manager, said they would struggle to support their son through university on their own. 'He's a typical teenage boy who saw what he wanted and worked hard for it,' said Mr Rose. 'He realised that if you want to get ahead in business and in life, you have to start at a young age. I could only dream of making that sort of money at his age.'
   James Inman, the head teacher at Buile Hill School, said, 'We admire this pupil's entrepreneurship, but school is not the place to set up a black market for junk food. We have extremely high standards and with our healthy-eating policy, we do not allow fizzy drinks or large amounts of sweets.'

   Faced with the threat of suspension, Tommie has decided to close his tuck shop business for now and donate the remaining snacks and drinks to the homeless in Manchester. However, aware of the advantages of working as he studies, Tommie plans to continue earning money and gaining valuable experience. The young entrepreneur is meeting his head teacher with a business plan for a healthy tuck shop, and has found himself back in the news again as he attempts to sell a signed bottle of a well-known energy drink online to the highest bidder. He also has plans for a new business involving T-shirts and has been offered work experience at a recruitment firm in Manchester.
