Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
The first English settlers in America soon discovered that they had to learn to make the best of the local foods. They had brought wheat and rye seeds with them, but these were difficult to grow in fields still full of tree stumps after the colonists’ amateurish clearing operations. Corn, on the other hand, was easy. From the North American Indians they learned not only how to grow it but how to cook it in a dozen simple and enjoyable ways – as porridge, flatbread, and as a kind of frumenty. They were pleased, too, to recognize their friend, the turkey (the Indians’ furkee). From the Indians the settlers discovered not only what was edible but how to cook it. One example is the seacoast clambake, a way of cooking clams and corn. Another cooking technique discovered was the barbecue, which seems to have filtered north from the Caribbean where the Carib Indians salted and smoke-dried meat over a fire of animal hides, a technique they called boucan.
