III)-Read the passage carefully, and then answer the questions below.
In the 1970s, skateboarding suddenly became very popular. At first,
skateboarders moved slowly on flat, smooth areas. Then they began to ride
quickly. This is called ‘freestyle’ skateboarding. Soon they were skateboarding
skillfully up ramps and doing tricks in the air. This is called ‘ramp’ skateboarding.
Then they started skateboarding and doing tricks on the street. This was ‘streetstyle’ skateboarding – a combination of freestyle and ramp. For this, the
skateboarders needed protective clothing such as knee and elbow pads and
helmets. This allowed them to skateboard safely.
Today skateboarding is still a very popular sport, and there are lots of
competitions.
