A. There were three reasons why the building of St Petersburg meant Russian Tsar Peter I became famous for being a cruel
leader. Many workers died either on the journey or from disease and overwork in the city build itself. The Tsar did not pay
his workers or provide food and because of this, many more died.
B. Russian Tsar Peter I wanted a new capital city so that he could compete with other European capitals. He built the city on
a river so that it would be easier to bring workers and materials into the city to help with the building process.
C. There were three challenges with the construction of St Petersburg: the unsuitability of the wet land in the location he
chose, the difficulty of transporting builders to the remote location, and the poor conditions they were working in and the
lack of raw materials for the construction process.
D. St Petersburg was the first city to be built on water and this is why the construction process was so challenging. it was
such a big project requiring so many men and materials that building in other parts of Russia stopped while the city was
being built. 08.

Well, a survey carried out in the nineteen eighties confirmed that this owl is most likely to be found in woodland. If you look at a map of tawny owl distribution across Britain, you’ll only see gaps
in the treeless mashy areas of western England, and in some of the more inland parts of north-west Scotland. However, you
can sometime find people of tawny owls in urban areas too, either in parks or in large garlands. 12. The tawny owl shows some obvious adoptions to its nocturnal habit. For example, both its wings and its tail are short, which helps it to manage through the trees. Also the bird’s pilgrimage is a mixture of brown and grey, and this provides
suitable camaraderie for when the owl perches up against a tree trunk. Then, there are its large eyes. The tawny owl's
visual capacities are significantly better than those of humans, and although it can’t see in complete darkness, it’s
adequately well designed to be able to cross its way around woodland on all but the most overcast nights. Emdad’s PTE & IELTS. +613 9016 9015, +61430 468 056, +91 175 508 0053, +91 88376 57451. Write from Dictation
