The Simpsons

Read the text about the Simpsons and write questions for the answers below. Follow the example.

The Simpsons are a typical family who live in a fictional "Middle American" town of Springfield. Homer, the father, works as a safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant - a job which doesn’t really fit his careless, clown-like personality. He is married to Marge Simpson, a stereotypical American housewife and mother. They have three children: Bart, a ten-year-old troublemaker; Lisa, a precocious eight-year-old activist; and Maggie, a baby who rarely speaks, but communicates by sucking on a pacifier. The family has a dog, Santa's Little Helper, and a cat, Snowball II. Both pets have had starring roles in several episodes. The first Simpsons episode was shown in 1987. Despite the passing of the years and celebrations such as holidays or birthdays, the Simpsons do not physically age and still look the same as they did at the end of the 1980s.
Ayudacareless = descuidado, despreocupado
precocious = precoz / to suck = chupar
pacifier (US) / dummy (UK) = chupete
role = papel

Write the questions for the answers.

Question: Where do the Simpsons live?

1. Homer
2. at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
3. He’s a safety inspector
4. Marge Simpson
5. three
6. by sucking on a pacifier

8. Snowball II
9. In 1987
10. No, they look the same as they did at the end of the 1980’s.
