Highlight​ ​Correct​ ​Summary You​ ​will​ ​hear​ ​a​ ​recording.​ ​Click​ ​on​ ​the​ ​paragraph​ ​that​ ​best​ ​relates​ ​to​ ​the​ ​recording. 07. 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. A​.​ ​Kinship​ ​in​ ​monkeys​ ​is​ ​determined​ ​and​ ​recognised​ ​in​ ​the​ ​way​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​monkeys​ ​grow​ ​up​ ​together. B​. Monkeys at the receiving end of aggression that choose to attack a relative, instead of a friend, of the original aggressor do​ ​so​ ​as​ ​it​ ​is​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​be​ ​more​ ​beneficial​ ​in​ ​the​ ​long​ ​run. C​. Monkeys retaliate assaults in a weird way. Older monkeys single out the relatives of the original aggressor in taking revenge,​ ​while​ ​the​ ​younger​ ​ones​ ​prefer​ ​a​ ​close​ ​associate​ ​of​ ​the​ ​original​ ​aggressor. D​.​ ​Monkeys​ ​hang​ ​around​ ​with​ ​their​ ​close​ ​associates​ ​so​ ​as​ ​to​ ​protect​ ​themselves​ ​from​ ​potential​ ​threats.

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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
