Read the text about
the Simpsons and write questions for the answers below. Follow the example.
Simpsons are a typical family who live in a fictional "Middle
American" town of Springfield. Homer, the father, works as a
safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant - a job
which doesn’t really fit his careless, clown-like personality.
He is married to Marge Simpson, a stereotypical American
housewife and mother. They have three children: Bart, a ten-year-old
troublemaker; Lisa, a precocious eight-year-old activist; and
Maggie, a baby who rarely speaks, but communicates by sucking on
a pacifier. The family has a dog, Santa's Little Helper, and a
cat, Snowball II. Both pets have had starring roles in several
episodes. The first Simpsons episode was shown in 1987. Despite
the passing of the years and celebrations such as holidays or
birthdays, the Simpsons do not physically age and still look the
same as they did at the end of the 1980s.
= descuidado, despreocupado
precocious = precoz / to suck = chupar
pacifier (US) / dummy (UK) = chupete
role = papel
