III. Прочтите текст и выполните задания 1 – 7. Ответьте на вопрос, выбрав одну букву, соответствующую правильному ответу.
November the nineteenth. That was definitely a new record, Sam noted darkly. Last year it had been November the twenty-sixth. He could clearly see that when he was fifty or sixty he’d be hearing his first performance of “Santa’s Super Sleigh” in July or August.
This year it was a busker at the bottom of the escalator at the Angel station, a cheerful, attractive young woman with a violin who was obviously trying to supplement her music scholarship. Sam looked at her with all the hatred he could muster, a look intended to convey not only that he wouldn’t be giving her any money, but that he would like to smash up her instrument and throw it down the escalator steps.
Sam hated Christmas, for the obvious reason: people knocked on his door, singing the song he hated more than any song in the world and expected him to give them money. It had been worse when he was a kid, because his dad hated Christmas too, for the obvious reason (although Sam hadn’t realized it was the obvious reason until he was much older – back then, he just thought that his dad was as sick of the song as everybody else): it was a terrible reminder of how badly he had failed in his life.
Quite often people wanted to interview his father about “Santa’s Super Sleigh”, and they always used to ask what else he had written, and he would tell them, sometimes even play things, or show them records which featured another of his songs. They would look embarrassed, cluck sympathetically and tell him how hard it was for everyone who was famous for only one thing, a long time ago, and ask him whether the song had ruined his life, or made him wish he’d never written it. He would get angry, and tell them not to be so stupid and patronizing and insensitive, and when they had gone, he would complain bitterly that the song had ruined his life, and say he wished he’d never written it. One radio journalist even went away and made a series called One-Hit Wonders inspired completely by his interview with Charles Freeman, all about people who’d written one great book, or appeared in one film, or written one famous song; the journalist had had the cheek to ask him for another interview and, perhaps understandably, Sam’s father had refused.
So Christmas was the season of anger and recrimination. It was a season of presents by the chimney too, but even when he was nine Sam would gladly have swapped his toys and his Bat-mobiles for a little peace and goodwill.
But things changed. His father died, and then his mother, and he lost touch with his stepbrother and stepsister, who were old and dull anyway, and Christmas was usually spent with friends, or girlfriends’ families, and all that was left was “Santa’s Super Sleigh” and the cheques it carried to him through the snow. But that was more than enough. Sam had often wondered whether there was any other stupid song which contained, somewh ere deep within it, as much pain and despair and regret. He doubted it. He still felt he needed a stiff drink, or counseling, or a good cry, when he heard it in a department-store lift or in a supermarket in the weeks leading up to 25 December. Maybe there were others like him somewh ere.
He had no plans for this Christmas whatsoever. There was no girlfriend, and so there were girlfriend’s parents, and though he had friends on whom he could inflict himself, and he didn’t feel like it. He would sit at home and watch millions of films. Why not? He was as entitled to a break as anyone else, even if there was nothing to break from.

As Good As It Looks
Did you ever want to know why the food in TV ads always looks 1_________? Did you ever wonder why it looks so much better on TV than it does in real life?
