Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions: Once a greedy dog was wandering in the town in search of food. Suddenly, it saw a butcher's shop. It came to the shop and stole a piece of meat from the shop and ran out of town. It wanted to eat the meat at a lonely place. There was a small river in the way. The river had a wooden bridge on it. The dog stepped on to the bridge to cross the river. When the dog reached the middle of the bridge it looked downwards in the clear still water of the river. It mistook its reflection for another dog with a piece of meat in the mouth. As it was greedy, it could not bear it. Without losing any time the dog barked at its own reflection. As it did this, the piece of meat fell into water. The greedy dog realized this. But what could be done now?
