2. Read the text, find the answers to the questions below

Travelling became a part of our life. Thousands of people travel every day either on business or for pleasure. They travel by road, by train, by air or by sea.

Of course, travelling by air is the fastest and the most convenient way, but it is the most expensive too. Travelling by train is slower than travelling by plane, but it is less expensive. You can see many interesting places of the country through the window. Modern trains have comfortable seats: there are sleeping cars and dining cars that make even the longest journey more pleasant. Speed, comfort and safety are the main advantages of trains and planes. That is why many people prefer them to all kinds of travelling.

Travelling by the sea is popular mostly for pleasure trips. Tourists can make voyages on large ships to foreign countries.

As for me I prefer travelling by car. I think it’s more convenient because you don’t have to buy tickets, you can stop any place and spend as much time as you like.
