fairly recent quake. Some birds screeched and flew about wildly; dogs yelped and ran around uncontrollably.
Line 5. Scientists believe that animals can perceive environmental changes several hours or even days before the
mishaps. Animals were notes as being restless for several weeks before a Tashkent , Uzbekistan , earthquake. An
hour before the disaster, domestic animals refused to go indoors and dogs howled and barked furiously. In 1960,
earthquake struck Agadir in Morocco . Survivors recall that stray animals, including dogs, were seen streaming out
of town before the earthquake. In a safari zoo nearSan Francisco , llamas would not eat the evening before a 1979
quake, and they ran around wildly all night.
Line 12. Unusual animal behavior preceding earthquakes has been noted for centuries. British Admiral Robert
Fitzroy reported huge flocks of screaming seabirds over Conception, Chile , in 1835. An hour and half later, dogs
were seen fleeing, and ten minutes later the town was destroyed. Similar stories of chickens running around in
apparent states of panic, horses trembling and dogs barking incessantly were recorded throughout the eighteenth
and nineteenth centuries by survivors of earthquake destruction in India, Yugoslavia, Peru, Mexico and the Unites

Answer: Assume that number of boys graduated from City High School = B
Therefore, number of girls graduated from City High School = 2*B
