Не пойму я что-то - то ли опечатка в учебнике, то ли крышка моя съехала))))
а вот заданиеUnfortunately, over the last century the Sahara desert has steadily crept southwards, eating into once productive Sahel lands. United Nations surveys show that over 70 per cent of the dry land in agricultural use in Africa has deteriorated over the last 30 years. Droughts have become more prolonged and more severe, the most recent lasting over 20 years in parts of the Sahel region. The same process of desertification 15 is taking place across southern Africa as the Kalahari desert advances into Botswana and parts of South Africa.
Меня интересует утверждение под номером 2. В ответах оно обозначено как NG....неужели здесь разница между over and just over? Тогда было бы False....1 The Sahara has spread slowly northwards into the Sahel region.
2 Just over 70 per cent of the dry land in agricultural use in Africa has deteriorated over the last 30 years.
3 Desertification is taking place faster in southern Africa than in the Sahel.
4 The advance of the desert is not the result of poor agricultural land use.
5 The loss of tree cover is a minor cause of desertification.
6 If there is a loss of tree cover, the deterioration in the soil is halted.
7 Tree conservation is more effective than sustainable agricultural land use in reducing the consequences of lack of rain.
Decide whether the statements in exercise 2 are False or Not Given according to the passage.
