  5. 5. Sample Question: List 10 details from the article that suggests polar bears can be dangerous. Extract from the passage: (possible 7 answers in this part) Help! Its the scare bear bunch When 200 bears pay an annual visit, its time for the people of Churchill in Canada – polar bear capital of the world – to keep their heads down. Peter Baumgartner reports on an adventure holiday he took there. Churchill is the polar bear capital of the world; every year in November, the town’s 1000 inhabitants have to share their living space with 200 of them. The bears invade Churchill while waiting for Hudson Bay to freeze over so that they can hunt on the ice for seals, their favourite food. Just before the winter begins in earnest, Churchill has a six-week ‘season’, and adventure tourists from around the world make the Arctic Circle to watch them. But amusing and clumsy as they look, polar bears are among the most dangerous predators on earth. Fast, strong and unpredictable, they weigh up to 600kg and attack without warning.
