American English Proverb - If you can't beat them, join them!

Mrs. Sanches had never been much of a sports fan — unlike her husband and two children. On weekends the others would take in either a baseball or a football game, while she stayed home alone. After a while the situation became a source of great annoyance to her. One weekend, to the utter amazement of her husband and children, she announced that she wanted to attend the football game with them. She thought, If you can't beat them, join them. Mrs. Sanches realized that since she could not talk her family out of attending the games, she might as well join them in one of their favorite pastimes. By joining her family on the weekends she would alleviate her loneliness, and in time she might even come to like sports as much as her husband and children did.

Texto curto em inglês - leitura e interpretação (reading) pré-intermediário

For many years people believed that the cleverest animals after man were chimpanzees. Now, however, there is proof that dolphins may be even cleverer than these big apes. 
Although a dolphin lives in the sea it is not a fish. It is a mammal. It is in many ways, therefore, like a human being. 
Dolphins have a simple language. They are able to talk to one another. It may be possible for man to learn how to talk to dolphins. But this will not be easy because dolphins cannot hear the kind of sounds man can make. If man wants to talk to dolphins, therefore, he will have to make a third language which both he and the dolphins can understand. 
Dolphins are also very friendly towards man. They often follow ships. There are many stories of dolphins guiding ships through difficult and dangerous waters. 

Question 1: Which animals do people think may be the cleverest?

a) Chimpanzees
b) Dolphins
c) Big apes
d) Mammals
