97. For questions 97-101, you need to read this story about a discovery of dinosaur footprints first:

The remarkable tracks of a predatory dinosaur have been discovered at a quarry in Oxfordshire by scientists. This is the first discovery of its kind anywhere in Britain. The tracks were left as the dinosaur, a close relative of the famous meat-eater Tyrannosaurus Rex, first walked then started running, probably chasing a meal. They most likely belong to a 26-foot tall theropod named Megalosaurus bucklandii, which was the first dinosaur ever identified. Theropods, the only meat-eating dinosaurs, walked upright on two legs. Theropods varied in size but all had a long, muscular tail in relation to their size, which they carried straight out behind them for balance. Their forelimbs were short and they had teeth like knives. The tracks show that these large two-legged dinosaurs, which lived about 163 million years ago, were able to accelerate to almost 20 miles an hour, much faster than previously thought. The findings will alter scientists’ ideas about the way it hunted. ‘We knew that the small theropods could run fast, but before we found these tracks, it wasn’t clear if the same was true for large theropods,’ said Dr Julia Day. ‘They also show that they walked in a very strange way, with their feet wide apart, almost like a clown with big feet.’
