Read the article about Debbie Sullivan.
For questions 1 - 7, mark А, В or С on your answer sheet.
Debbie Sullivan's a very busy woman. She's got ten children. Every morning she wakes up at six o'clock. The older children get up at six-thirty and start school at eight-thirty. Debbie spends most days at home with her babies, cooking and cleaning. She doesn't have time to go out to work, but she doesn't mind her life. She'd like to have more children. Debbie's husband, Bob, works in an office. He doesn't enjoy it, but he earns lots of money. Debbie spends most of it on food and clothes for the children.
Debbie likes the evening best. After dinner, she sits down in the living-room and tells the children a story before they go to bed. She doesn't read from a book, because these are her own stories. Every week she tells a different story that starts on Monday and ends on Sunday. Once the children are asleep, Debbie can relax. But she doesn't sit and watch television with Bob. She writes her latest story in a notebook before she forgets it.
Bob sent one of Debbie's stories to a competition in a newspaper and it won. They said she should become a writer, but Debbie wasn't sure that she was good enough. But the children thought it was a great idea, so she decided to try. She took them to a zoo. They liked the elephant best, so Debbie wrote a story about it. The book company loved it. You can now buy this story in the shops.
