ANSWER:The true storv is C.

TRUEOR FALSE- extension

Comprehension

You could extendthis game by making up or findinginterestingderivationsof words and then reading
them to the playerswho have to decidewhetherthe explanationis true or false.For examote:
The word 'news' comes from the initial lettersof the words 'north', 'eas|, 'west', 'south'. This is
because it is the latestinformatroncomtngin from the four pointsof the compass.
(False:lt comes from the olC French word 'noveles'.)
The expression'CK' comes from the initialsof a Mr Otto Keiserwho worked for the Ford Motor
Companyin the USA in the early part of this century.Mr Keiser wcrked as chref checker for Ford and
hi< inh anncictoglof standing at the end of the assemblyline checking that the newty finished cars
were road-worthy.Mr Keiser had the habit of chalking his initialson the cars that passed his tests.And
in time these initials'OK' have come to mean OK.
(False:There are many theories for the derivationof 'CK' but this is certainlynot one of them.)
uarotEansare named after the Britishnobleman,the Earl of Cardigan who began the fasnionfor
wearing this garment in nis efforts to try to keep warm while fightingin the Crimean War.
