Read the passage below and answer questions 41-50

Probably no legendary sea monster was as horrifying as the kraken. According to stories this huge creature, with its many tentacles, could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship's main mast. A kraken wouId attack a ship by wrapping its tentacles around the hull and capsizing it. The crew would drown or be eaten by the monster. Of all the greatest sea monster tales, those concerning the kraken are the best evidence that such a creature was based on something real.

Tales of huge horned sea creatures with many heads and tentacles exist from ancient times. In 1555, Swedish Archbishop, Olaus Magnus, described a sea creature 'about 2 metres long, very black, and with huge eyes...

Although the term 'kraken' is first found in print in 1735. stories about this monster date back to twelfth century Norway. These often referred to a creature so big that it was mistaken for an island or "series of islands. As late as 1752, the Bishop of Bergen (in Norway) described the kraken as "incontestably the largest sea monster in the world" with a width of up to two kilometres. The Bishop also noted that it had tentacles like an octopus: 'It seems these ar the creature's arms, and, it is said, if they were to take hold of the largest fighting ship, they would pull it down to the bottom.' Despite this, the Bishop said that the greatest dangers the kraken presented to ships were the disturbance it made as it came to the surface and the whirlpool created as it descended below. Because fish were attracted to where the kraken was, Norwegian fishermen would often fish directly above the creature, despite the risk to their ship and their lives.

Recent research suggests that the legendary kraken was a giant squid. A colossal octopus might also fit the description but a squid is thought to be much more agressive and more likely to come to the surface where it might be seen by the hun an eye. Although giant squids are considerably less than two kilometres across, some are thought to be large enough to wrestle with a whale. On at least three occasions in the 1930s giant squids reportedly attacked ships.
