PART-1: READING TEST
1. Read the following text and answer the question A and B.
The persona of a traffic police man has always been a curious one. It has often found important space and close treatment in literature and other arts. Besides the many poems about this fascinating character there is at least one movie where the central character is a traffic police man. In 1963, Greek film maker Filippos Fylaktos made this film named ‘My brother’ the traffic police man. It featured a slightly manic traffic police man. Antonius Pikrocholos, who is utterly devoted to service and duty, and applies the traffic code with unyielding severity. Tickets rain down upon law- breakers in particular taxi-drivers and especially Lampreys, who happens to be in love with Pikrocholos’ sister, Fofo. In his turn, the traffic police man is in love with a business man’s daughter, Kiki, who is afraid to reveal her feelings to her father. Besides, Antonis has given lots of traffic tickets to father’s company. For all these reasons, the road to marriage for both couples is long and strewn with obstacles, but the outcome is a happy one for everyone involved.
