READING 1. Read the text. Then answer the questions. Cleaning the River The River Thames is in London. Many years ago, when London was a small town, the River Thames was beautiful and clean. There was fish in the river and birds sang in the trees near it. People could swim in the river too. But, as London grew, the river became dirtier. People built factories near the river and pollution from them and from ships killed the fish. In 1950 people began to worry. The water was black and it had a bad smell. There weren’t any fish in the river and there weren’t any animals, plants or trees near it. In 1961, the people of London began to clean up the river. They stopped throwing their rubbish into the river and they planted trees. When the river was clean enough, they put fish back into it. Now the River Thames is cleaner than it was forty years ago and people hope it will stay clean. 1.
