    1. The milkmaid and her pail
    A milkmaid was on her way to the market. On her head she carried a large pail of milk. As she walked along she thought of all the money she would have as soon as she sold the milk. "I shall buy hens from Farmer Brown," she thought, "and they will lay eggs every day. I will sell the eggs to the parson's wife. She will pay me well. With the money from the eggs, I will buy myself a new frock and bonnet. What colour shall they be? I think green ? a lovely green, for that colour becomes me best. When I go to market, I will wear my new clothes. All the young men will want to speak to me, of course, but I shall pretend not to see them. When they follow me, I shall walk proudly on. I'll toss my head-like this." And with that, she tossed her head. The pail slipped off from her head, and the milk spilled all over the ground. The milkmaid brought her empty pail and her sad tale home to her mother. "Ah, my daughter," said her mother, "Do not count your chickens before they are hatched."
    Where was the milkmaid going?

    A) To sell eggs to the parson's wife.

    B) To buy hens from Farmer Brown.

    C) To the market to sell a pail of milk.

    D) To the market to buy a lovely dress.

    2. The monkey and dolphin
    A sailor, embarking on a voyage to Greece, took along a monkey to amuse him on shipboard. Off the coast of Greece, near Athens, a violent storm arose. Angry waves beat against the ship and dashed it to pieces. The sailor, his monkey, and all the crew jumped into the sea and swam for their lives. A dolphin saw the monkey struggling in the water and came to his assistance. The dolphin swam with the monkey on his back towards the shore. Then the dolphin, thinking the monkey was a man, asked, "Are you, sir, an Athenian?" "Certainly I am," the monkey replied, "and furthermore I am descended from one of the noblest families of Athens." "Then of course you know Piraeus," the dolphin said. The monkey did not know that Piraeus was the famous harbor of Athens. "Oh yes," he said, "I know Pi-raeus very well. He is one of my closest friends." The dolphin was so angered at these lies that he dived into the water and swam away, leaving the monkey to flounder helplessly in the sea. Then he called back to the monkey, "Those who tell falsehoods sooner or later find themselves in deep water."
    Why did the sailor take along a monkey while going on a voyage?

    A) To get his help.

    B) For entertainment.

    C) In order to sell him abroad.

    4. The Holiness of Saint Joan of Arc
    Joan of Arc was a young girl of seventeen. She believed that if France could put together a strong army, it could free itself from foreign rule. France was at that time ruled by Prince Henry of England. Joan was a simple, uneducated daughter of a farmer. Girls those days did not have the freedom they have now. It was amazing that a simple girl like Joan should have such ambitious ideas. Her conviction that her country could be free was so strong that she met Prince Charles of France and convinced him that he was the right-ful ruler of the country. After a great deal of persuasion, Joan of Arc convinced Prince Charles to allow her to command a force to relieve Orleans. Prince Charles gave his permission and Joan of Arc led an army of French soldiers to the city of Orleans which had been conquered by the English. So great was the courage of her conviction that this young girl whipped up tremendous enthusiasm and patriotism among her soldiers. They fought fearlessly against the English. The English soldiers were taken aback by the fervour of the attacking French soldiers and retreated from Orleans. After this grand victory, she persuaded Charles to be crowned as "King of France". She led the armies of France in many other campaigns after this and restored her country's national pride. Joan of Arc thus achieved what had seemed an impossible task through her courage and determination. She continued to lead the French army from victory to victory but was captured in an encounter in 1420 and handed over to the English. The English put her through a trial which was a mockery of justice and burned her at the stake as a witch. The French people adore Joan as their greatest national heroine. She was made a saint in 1920.

    4. The Holiness of Saint Joan of Arc
    Joan of Arc was a young girl of seventeen. She believed that if France could put together a strong army, it could free itself from foreign rule. France was at that time ruled by Prince Henry of England. Joan was a simple, uneducated daughter of a farmer. Girls those days did not have the freedom they have now. It was amazing that a simple girl like Joan should have such ambitious ideas. Her conviction that her country could be free was so strong that she met Prince Charles of France and convinced him that he was the right-ful ruler of the country. After a great deal of persuasion, Joan of Arc convinced Prince Charles to allow her to command a force to relieve Orleans. Prince Charles gave his permission and Joan of Arc led an army of French soldiers to the city of Orleans which had been conquered by the English. So great was the courage of her conviction that this young girl whipped up tremendous enthusiasm and patriotism among her soldiers. They fought fearlessly against the English. The English soldiers were taken aback by the fervour of the attacking French soldiers and retreated from Orleans. After this grand victory, she persuaded Charles to be crowned as "King of France". She led the armies of France in many other campaigns after this and restored her country's national pride.
