I- Read the following text and answer the questions below:

II- Read the following text then do the tasks below:

The law related to computer crime is changing very quickly. Modern criminals are using computers to help them commit crimes like identity theft and to make it easier to commit old crimes like theft or fraud. One issue that makes it hard to fight computer crime is that this type of offence is often more difficult to solve than traditional crimes because the criminals are invisible and their actions may be hard to prove. Another issue is that it is quite difficult to prosecute a computer criminal successfully because usually nothing is actually stolen or physically damaged. Computers allow criminals access to millions of people whom they may persuade to pay for something worthless.

The oral tradition of literature is therefore very old indeed, and for many generations stories, songs, poems and the history of the tribe were transmitted orally from one generation to the next. There is some evidence that in those days, in the absence of reading and writing, storytellers had a much better memory than their literate successors, and that it was possible for a storyteller to remember and pass on to the next generation stories of great length and complexity. The ancient Greek poet, Homer, for example, was probably illiterate. His epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey were passed on orally for several generations before being written down. In printed form, they run to four or five hundred pages each, so remembering every word would have been a considerable achievement.

Answer the following questions:

(6 marks)

1. What examples of old and new crimes does the writer give? 2. Why makes it hard to fight computer crime? 3. Why is it difficult to prosecute a computer criminal?
