Read the passage and mark A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions .
Over the past 600 years, English has grown from a language of few speakers to become the dominant language of
international communication. English as we know it today emerged around 1350, after having incorporated many elements of French
that were introduced following the Norman invasion of 1066. Until the 1600s, English was, for the most part, spoken only in England
and had not expanded even as far as Wales, Scotland, or Ireland. However, during the course of the next two century, English began
to spread around the globe as a result of exploration, trade (including slave trade), colonization, and missionary work. Thus, small
enclaves of English, speakers became established and grew in various parts of the world. As these communities proliferated, English
gradually became the primary language of international business, banking, and diplomacy.
Currently, about 80 percent of the information stored on computer systems worldwide is in English. Two thirds of the world's
science writing is in English, and English is the main language of technology, advertising, media, international airport, and air traffic
controllers. Today there are more than 700 million English users in the world, and over half of these are non-native speakers,
constituting the largest number of non-native users than any other language in the world.
