IV Translate the following extract.

As well as the normal navigation lights which are shown by the vessel at night or in restricted visibility she will use appropriate sound signals for her status to warn other of her presence. The effective range of a sound signal is very much less than the range of visibility of a navigation light on a clear night and its direction is also difficult to fix. If a vessel maintained full speed in restricted visibility it might not be able to manoeuvre clear of a vessel on collision course when finally sighted. For this reason it is prudent to set the vessel`s speed appropriate to the prevailing conditions.
