no attention then. He turned towards me a very gently pair of dark eyes and said his name: Huge

Belfounder. He added:" I thought you didn't want to talk." I said that I was not at all against talking, that I

had just been rather busy with something when he arrived, and I begged his pardon if I had appeared rude.

It seemed to me, even from the way he spoke, that he was not only mentally ill, but was highly

intelligent; and I began, almost automatically, to pack up my papers. I knew that from now on I should do

no more work. I was sharing a room with a person of the greatest fascination.

VII. Every sentence has one mistake. Correct these nine mistakes:

.........................

.........................

........................



Thirteen-year-olds not spend as much money as their parents suspect - at

least not according to the findings of a recent survey, Money and Charge.

The survey included three hundred teenagers, 13-17 years old, from all over

British.

By the time they reach their teens, most children see its weekly allowance

rise dramatically to an amazing national average of ₤5.14.



........................

.........................



Two thirds think they get enough money, but most expect doing something to

get it.



.........................



Although they have more cash, worry about debt is increasing between

teenagers.



.........................

.........................

.........................



Therefore, the majority of children do an effort to save for the future.

Greater access to cash among teenagers does not, however, mean that they

are more irresponsible as result.

The economic recession seems to have encouraged cautious attitudes to

money, even in the case of children in these ages.

Instead of wasting what pocket money they have on sweets or magazines, the

13-year-olds took part in the survey seem to respond to the situation by

saving more than half of their cash.
