The Sun God (Text - Exercise)

Oi, gente! Então, que tal ler o texto abaixo e responder as perguntas? Vamos praticar vocabulário e interpretação.

The Sun God

The creation of gods, goddesses, or myths was a product of the early period of mankind's life on earth; but some myths sometimes develop about heroes or prominent people in any age or time.
Not long ago a scholar with a sense of humor presented the theory that Napoleon Bonaparte never existed but was just a myth. His name was really Apollo, the sun god (N-Apoleo-n); his two wives were the earth and the moon; his four brothers were the four seasons; his twelve generals were the twelve signs of the zodiac, and so on. 
The scholar was just having fun, but many other myths probably began in just the same way.

1) True or false?

(   ) Gods, goddesses and myths are modern creations.
