1 ) What do you know about spiders ?
Spiders belong to the arachnid family which includes scorpions . There are different species of spider . Every year , scientists discover new species that are added to them . A spider spins a web that it uses to catch insects . That is why scientists believe spiders are useful to us as they help us to get rid of insects . Male spiders are often much smaller than females . A female spider lays about 2000 eggs and encloses them in sacs of white silk . The females of the spider develop quickly and within a few weeks, there can be millions of them . Most of spiders are not deadly . They spiders in modern Egypt are not dangerous . However , in ancient Egypt there were deadly spiders . Our story is about a certain species of spider which lived in ancient Egypt and is still living in Egyptian tombs . They are deadly and are black with two thick yellow lines in colour on its back .
2 ) What do you know about the internet ?
The internet is a huge “ network “ of computers connected to smaller networks all over the world . Such networks are connected through public and private telephones with cables made of fibre glass or copper wire so that they can carry a large body of information at great speeds . Some networks are also connected through radio . Networks all through theworld are connected with under- sea cables or satellites .
3 ) What are the uses of the Internet ?
As soon as you are connected with the internet , you can do a lot of different jobs . You can play games , engage in an interesting chat , exchange messages . listen to music , do the shopping and academic work . You can ask for a search for a topic you are doing research on ; the net will provide you with all the books and periodicals on it . Moreover , they can provide abstracts of all that has been written so far . People often use the internet for sending e-mail or for participating in debates and dialogues with people of your interest all over the world .

If characters are evaluated according to the part they play in the story . they the Female spider can truly be considered the main female character . It is the prime mover of all the events of the story . Since it first appeared , it had set the whole world in motion . Everbody had to be prepared and ready to confront . When all the people with all their technology waged war against it , it stood firm and steadfastly fought back . It had to face the police , Ayman and his family , professor Jones and many others . However, it bravely stood and fought to the end . We can’t deny that it tried its best to defend its young but technology was by far stronger . Actually it had its own admirers such as professor Jones who was very sympathetic . Again it was as all spiders of noble origin because it didn’t bite until it was disturbed . If nobody had disturbed it , it would have never tried to hurt anybody . It was so brave that when the tank fell on one of its legs, it used its fangs t cut its entrapped leg off and free itself . It is like a soldier who would rather kill himself than fall in the hands of the enemy . It never surrendered but fought to the end .
The Female Spider
1 – Description
The female spider was black with two thick lines yellow in colour on its back . Its body was as big as a small apple . It had eight eyes like most spiders and two as long as a pencil . It had two long fangs each about a centimeter long in its mouth .
2 – An Unidentified Species of Spider
That spider was not like the Indonesian type with black and yellow . spots nor was it like garden spiders of the USA with its seven yellow spots . It was an unidentified species of spider similar to the Ancient Egyptian spiders found near Bawiti .
3 – Its Reproduction
The female spider laid 2000 eggs . It carefully enclosed them in four sacs of white silk . These eggs could develop quickly ; four weeks was the maximum . Therefore . within few weeks there would be millions of them .
4 – Where the Spiders lived
