I. Read the article about two sisters. Are the sentences Right or Wrong? If there is not enough
information to answer Right or Wrong, choose Doesnt say.

Something very strange happened to Tamara. She never knew she had a twin sister until she started
university!
Tamara was born in Mexico. Her parents could not look after her so she went to live with a family in
Manhattan, USA.
When Tamara was twenty years old, she started university in Long Island. She enjoyed her university life.
But one day she was walking home from class, and a student smiled at her. Hello Adriana! said the
student. Im not Adriana, said Tamara.
This happened to Tamara again and again. People Tamara didnt know kept calling her Adriana. It was
very strange. One day, when a woman called her Adriana, Tamara asked Why do you keep calling me
Adriana?
The woman replied, You look like my friend Adriana. You have the same face and the same hair. Is
Adriana your sister? Tamara said that she did not have a sister called Adriana. But she was interested in
this girl Adriana. Finally she asked someone for Adrianas email address.
When Tamara wrote to Adriana, she found out that they both had the same birthday, they looked the same
and both of them were from Mexico. When Tamara went to live with the family in Manhattan, Adriana
moved to Long Island to live with a family there. It had to be true! Adriana and Tamara were twin sisters!
