    Read the following stories and answer the questions that follow:
    A donkey and a rooster lived peaceably together in the farmyard One day, a hungry lion passed by. His eyes brightened at the sight of the plump donkey, and he thought of the fine meal in store for him. But just as the lion was about to pounce on the donkey, the rooster began to crow. Now, it is said there is nothing a lion hates more than the sound of a cock-a-doodle-doo. Perhaps it is true, for the lion turned and fled at the sound of the rooster's crowing.
    The donkey laughed "Why, the lion is a coward! The mighty king of beasts runs from a rooster." And the donkey felt so bold that he began to chase the lion. He had not gone very far, however, when the lion turned with a great roar, he leapt upon the donkey.
    The rooster, watching from the farmyard, said sadly, "Alas! My poor friend did not realize what he could or could not do."
    "False confidence often leads to misfortune."
