Extra word, 6

For questions 41-55, read the text below and look carefully at each line. Some of the lines are correct, and some have a word which should not be there.

If a line is correct put OK  by the number. If a line has a word which should not be there, write the word next to the number. There are two examples at the beginning (0 and 00).


Soon a rather low sound was being heard and the float plane 0 being

appeared, flying towards us. It landed gently on the lake, turned 00 OK 

and then came slowly up along the landing stage. We loaded 41

equipment while Jim was been talking with the pilot, wanting 42

to know how about the weather was ahead of us. The pilot said 43

that the conditions in the valley were all right at the moment for 44

landing and taking it off, but that the weather was rapidly 45

getting more worse and we would have to get away as quickly as 46

possible. We all worked silently for quite a while, because of we 47

did not want to waste time. Finally the plane was being ready. 48

Jim he also boarded it so that there was one less person to take 49

on the next trip. The plane moved over the surface of the water 50

and rose into the air. The plane carne back on the time and it was 51

Chris’ turn to go, with the rest of the film gear. Unless the plane 52

was not back in time, we would be in trouble. The clouds 53

were getting so thicker and blacker. We began to be anxious 54

about our safety and whether the plane would be back to pick us up. 55
