Passage :

“A rabbit caught swine flu in Puri yesterday.  It was confirmed that no other cause of infection was detected.  A school of fish were living close to the rabbit hole and have decided to close down for the next 3 weeks.  Further precautions will be announced after jungle committee meeting has taken place.   Article obtained from Puri Times”

Did the story change by the time the Student B told the story?

Did the story change by the time Student D heard the story?

Do you think Student E would have got the wrong information if he/she had just read the story

If you hear some news from friends, do you think you should confirm the news from the original source?

Scientist are trained to confirm the information for themselves before going ahead with the next step.
