By the late nineteenth century, the Antarctic Continent remained as the last great territorial prize for geographers and explorers. The way south was known as a remarkable journey through regions of natural wonder and danger, marked by exotic scenes and creatures. The penguin was a noted inhabitant of these places. The first sight of penguins was a significant experience for the southern visitor. A source of entertainment and nutrition, penguins were marked on maps, illustrated in expedition records petted, and made into survival food. With no vegetation or human marks of occupation, such as buildings or roads, and with the sense of the normal scale of things broken by enormous ice walls and glaciers, a sense of unreality was created, enhanced by cold, dry air and long silences. And penguins presented a very strange sight indeed. The fact that these birds seemed to survive readily, almost easily, only added to the sense of unreality. Where the bleak and strange wilderness brought a longing for human society, people often described penguins and penguin behavior as if they too were human Penguin rookeries were described as cities, penguin groups as committees or gangs. It is as though this mode of expression were fulfilling a need for (A).

“There has been a lot of research on the effects of caffeine on your body and health. Caffeine is contained in many drinks and sweets such as coffee, tea, and chocolate. One of the well-known effects of caffeine is keeping you awake. Some people drink a lot of coffee before exams and try to study until late at night. There are some other effects on you that caffeine might cause. I can, for example, sometimes increase your heart rate or blood pressure. It is used to add a bitter taste to some drinks, as well. So, you may want to consider the amount of caffeine you take in each day.”
