Read the passage and answer the question that follow.
A girl named Johnsy catches pneumonia. Her bed was near the window which overlooked the brick wall of the opposite house. A very old ivy vine climbed halfway up the brick wall. It was winter and its leaves were falling. A strange idea took hold of Johnsy's mind. She began to think that when the last ivy leaf fell, she would also pass away. Her condition went from bad to worse with the falling of each leaf from the ivy. Her friend, Sue, tried her best to get this foolish idea out of Johnsy's mind but in vain. When only one leaf was left on the ivy, Johnsy began to prepare herself for death. Then Sue thought of a plan to save the life of her friend. When Johnsy was asleep at night, Sue went to an old painter named Behrman. It was raining hard and the last ivy leaf fell during the night. Behrman painted a leaf in green colour, which looked exactly like the real leaf.
Next morning when Johnsy woke up, she began to wait for the last leaf to fall. But the leaf didn't fall even after two days and two nights. It filled Johnsy with a new hope. Her condition began to improve. When she was completely out of danger, Sue told her that the last leaf was not the real leaf, but a mere painting by Behrman. She also told her that Behrman worked in rain during the night and caught pneumonia. He died the next day.
Behrman had desired all his life to paint a masterpiece but had never been able to begin it. But the last leaf that he painted before his death, really proved to be a masterpiece.

BSue tried her best to get death out of Johnsy’s head.
CSue left Johnsy.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Once upon a time there was a little white hen. She lived in a little blue house, and she had a little green garden. Every day she worked in the house and garden. Near her home lived a family of foxes. One day mamma fox said to papa fox, "I want a fat hen to eat." There was nothing in the pantry for the baby foxes, so papa fox started out to find something for them all.
He ran down the road until he came to the woods. "Surely I will find something here," he said, but he found nothing to eat in the woods. As he came near the little green garden he said, "Oh, I smell fresh cake. Oh, I smell a little white hen."
Sure enough, there was the little white hen eating her cake. Papa fox snuck up quietly behind her and grabbed her and put her into the bag on his back; then he ran quickly off down the hill toward his home. The little white hen was so frightened that she could only whisper, "Oh, dear. Oh, dear. Oh, dear."
Just then she had to sneeze, and when she put her claw into her pocket for her handkerchief, she felt her little scissors. Quick as a flash she took them out and cut a little hole in the bag. Peeping out she saw a great hill just ahead, all covered with stones. As papa fox stopped to rest on his way up the hill, with his back turned toward her, she cut a big hole in the bag, jumped out and quickly put a big stone in the bag in her place. As papa fox kept on up the hill, he thought the bag was pretty heavy, but he said, "Never mind, she is a fat little white hen."
Mamma fox met him at the front door with all the baby foxes. "The water is boiling," said she. "What have you in your bag?" asked the baby foxes. "A fat, little, white hen," said Papa Fox.
As he held the bag over the pot, he said to mamma fox, "When I drop her in, you clap on the lid." So he opened the bag. Splash! went the boiling water. It spilled all over papa fox and mamma fox and the baby foxes. Never again did they try to catch the little white hen.
