Now read the article.

There are three versions of the same article.  All versions have the same information but the language in the first version is more simple.  The third version is the original.  The second is in the middle.  Start with the first version.  After reading it, if you want to read something more challenging, read the second version.  If you are able to read the second version try the original!
