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 a 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).


If the experts could not agree on it the reason for the worst  0 it 

floods of the century in northern Europe, they are no wiser 00  OK

 about the drought which it is taking place in the south. The 41 

people are looking forward at the sky for the rain clouds which 42

never come. A lot of people think it might be such a good idea if 43

the planes do not fly over their areas so they do not frighten of 44

the clouds away. In some areas the drought that has been going 45

thousands of residents have been left without some homes and 49

have had to stay in other people’s homes. Many farmers have lost a 50

lot of money because their crops which were destroyed and could 51

not be sold. Although some farmers tried to get back to their 52

farms they were not allowed to by the police. Besides from the 53
