Passages with Question Answer
I. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:
Let me put it more clearly, since no one will believe that a thirteen-year-old girl is completely alone in the world. And I’m not. I have loving parents and a sixteen-year-old sister, and there are about thirty people I can call friends. I have a family, loving aunts and a good home. No, on the surface I seem to have everything, except my one true friend. All I think about when I’m with friends is having a good time. I can’t bring myself to talk about anything but ordinary everyday things. We don’t seem to be able to get any closer, and that’s the problem. Maybe it’s my fault that we don’t confide in each other. In any case, that’s just how things are, and unfortunately they’re not liable to change. This is why I’ve started the diary.
1. Anne feels alone. Why?
2. What reasons does she give for writing the diary?
3. Which word in the passage means the same as ‘to trust someone’ or ‘to share a secret’? See Answers
II. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:
I get along pretty well with all my teachers. There are nine of them, seven men and two women. Mr Keesing, the old fogey who teaches maths, was annoyed with me for ages because I talked so much. After several warnings, he assigned me extra homework. An essay on the subject, ‘A Chatterbox’. A chatterbox — what can you write about that? I’d worry about that later, I decided. I jotted down the title in my notebook, tucked it in my bag and tried to keep quiet.
1. What are the speaker’s relations with her teachers?
2. Why does he issue warnings to the speaker?
3. Find a word which means ‘angry’. See Answers
III. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follows:
I finished my poem, and it was beautiful! It was about a mother duck and a father swan with three baby ducklings who were bitten to death by the father because they quacked too much. Luckily, Mr Keesing took the joke the right way. He read the poem to the class, adding his own comments, and to several other classes as well. Since then I’ve been allowed to talk and haven’t been assigned any extra homework. On the contrary, Mr Keesing’s always making jokes these days.
1. Why does Anne say that the poem was beautiful?
2. How does Mr. Keesing react to it?
3. Which word in the passage means the same as ‘given a particular job to somebody’? See Answers
