Answers:
1 Robert Scott led an expedition to Antarctica in 1901 as the result of a request by Sir Clements Markham, the former polar explorer and then President Royal Geographical Society. This was an expedition of research and discovery. He led a subsequent expedition in 1912 with the aim of being the first to the South Pole. He was keen to lead because he enjoyed the challenges of scientific work and being in command, and he had a sense of adventure.

2 During his first expedition he used a balloon to gather information about Antarctica. He also took a scientific equipment with which he and his party also collected data, such as weather contions, and survival.

3 Biscuits Pemmican Butter and cheese Sugar Cocoa
Apparently one of the reasons for not surviving the final expedition was lack of sufficient food.

4 The expedition travelled by motorized sledges because Scott distrusted dogs.
