Opgave 1


Find alle verberne (udsagnsordene) i præteritum (datid) i nedenstående tekst, og omskriv dem til præsens (nutid). Skriv hele teksten som dit svar, og markér verberne (udsagnsordene) tydeligt som i eksemplet.

Eksempel: The Black Cat leapt upon it,…

The Black Cat leaps upon it,…


The Black Cat leapt upon it, and in seconds they became a rolling, writhing thing, moving faster than my eyes could follow. […] And then a low roar – down the country road at the bottom of our drive, in the distance, lumbered a late-night truck, its blazing headlights burning bright as green suns through the binoculars. I lowered them from my eyes, and saw only darkness, and the gentle yellow of headlights, and then the red of rear lights as it vanished off again into the nowhere at all.
    When I raised the binoculars once more there was nothing to be seen. Only the Black Cat, on the steps, staring up into the air. I trained the binoculars up, and saw something flying away – a vulture, perhaps, or an eagle – and then it flew beyond the trees and was gone.
    I went out onto the porch, and picked up the Black Cat, and stroked him, and said kind, soothing things to him. He mewled piteously when I first approached him, but, after a while, he went to sleep on my lap […].

Neil Gaiman, “The Price”, 1999

Said something about knowing my way around the PC – “excellent Microsoft Office Skills”, that’s me in a nut shell.

I know how to work alone, keep myself going. And I really need the job. And people tend to like me, U know, like to talk to me. Which I’m good at. Talking. 32 by the way.
