ВЫДЕРЖКИ ИЗ КОНТРОЛЬНОЙ РАБОТЫ:
Task 1: a) Translate the text in writing, answer the questions.
In the traditional English detective story, written by someone like Agatha Christie, the crime is nearly always murder. It often takes place in a country house and the local inspector, who undertakes the investigation, is incapable of solving the case and needs the private detective's help. The detective begins by making inquiries and looking for clues. The suspects usually belong to upper-class and have a motive for killing the victim. The detective eventually invites all those who are under suspicion to meet and thus resolves the mystery. Someone like Hercule Poirot sets a trap for the murderer and establishes his guilt by analyzing the evidence very thoroughly. Finally the murderer gives himself away and confesses his guilt. The grateful police inspector arrives to make the formal charge and put the murderer under arrest.
In real life the crime is usually an offence against property, ranging from shoplifting through theft to burglary and robbery with violence. Other offences involving money like fraud and forgery are also much more common than murder. If the case is solved, it is usually because the police receive information that puts them on the track of the criminal or the criminal himself leaves traces such as fingerprints. Sometimes offering a reward helps to convict someone. But few thieves or robbers confess unless they know they will be found guilty and hope to get a lighter sentence.
