46 – 50. Choose the item among A, B, c or D that best answers the question about the passage:

Computer programmer David Jones earns £35,000 a year designing new Computer games, yet he cannot find a bank prepared to let him have a cheque car. Instead he has been told to wait another two years, until he is 18.

The 16-year-old boy works for a small firm in Liverpool, where the problem of most young people of age is finding a job. David’s firm releases two new games for the expanding home Computer market each month.

But David’s biggest headache is what to do with his money. Despite his salary, earned by inventing new programmes within tight schedules with bonus payment and profit-sharing, he cannot drive a car, take out a mortgage, or obtain credit cards.

David got his job with the Liverpool-based company four months ago, a year after leaving school with six O-levels and working for a time in a Computer shop. “I got the job because the people who run the firm knew I had already written some programmes,” he said.

I suppose £35,000 sounds a lot but actually that’s being pessimistic. I hope it will come to records and clothes and he gives his mother £20 a week. But most of his spare time is spent working. “Unfortunately, computing was not part of our studies at school,” he said. “But I had been studying it in books and magazines for four years in my spare time. I knew what I wanted to do and never considered staying on at school. Most people in this business are fairly young anyway.”

David added, “I would like to earn a million and I suppose early retirement is a possibility. You never knew when the market might disappear.”

46. What is David different from other young people of his age?

A. He earns an extremely high salary. B. He is not unemployed.

c. He does not go out much. D. He lives at home with his parents.

47. David’s greatest problem is ……

A. making the banks treat him as an adult B. inventing Computer games

C. spending his salary D. learning to drive

48. He was employed by the company because ……

A. he had worked in a Computer shop

B. he had written some Computer programmes

C. he works very hard

D. he had learned to use computers at school

49. He left school after O-levels because ……

A. he did not enjoy school

B. he wanted to work with computers and staying at school did not help him

C. he was afraid of getting too old to start computing

D. he wanted to earn a lot of money

50. Why does David think he might retire early?

A. You have to be young to write Computer programmes.

B. He wants to stop working when he is a millionaire.

c. He thinks Computer games might not always sell well.

D. He thinks his firm might go bankrupt.
