My name is Keshav and when I was young I always liked visiting zoos. It was great to see animals that didn’t live around my house. Around my house I could see cows or horses, but not zebras or lions. I could see dogs and pigs, but not crocodiles or deer. I loved spending my weekends at the zoo learning about the animals.
One day I learned there was an animal shelter near my uncle's house. It wasn't a regular shelter. The ones I’d been to before were places where you could adopt dogs, cats and sometimes even a pot-bellied pig or goat. This place had lions, tigers and bears, so I was really keen to go there immediately.
As I arrived, I was surprised because I heard the lions from the parking lot. The place was small, but nicely kept. It was clean and the volunteers working at the entry were very helpful. My family and I toured the place at our own pace, examining the cages and habitats the animals lived in.
I was immediately struck by the differences between this place and a normal zoo. Zoos usually have beautiful habitats set up for each animal, but you can’t get near the animals at all. At this shelter, I was almost close enough to reach out and touch the animals, even though there were two fences between the animals and I. There weren’t as many people, either, so it seemed like a more personal experience. The paths were narrow and covered with trees that made the animals feel more at home and provided them shade.
It was interesting to stare a lion in the eyes when you could almost reach out and touch it. It was fun to watch the bears pace back and forth and wiggle their lips at you with great expressions. They were silly creatures. There were leopards lazing in the midday heat and monkeys grooming themselves.
The best part about the place was the stories. The animals had a story posted up on the sides of their cages. Each had been rescued from abuse or taken when they were no longer wanted These were sad stories with a happy ending. Someone at this shelter had worked hard to take care of the animals, and now I could enjoy meeting them and learn from them.
When it was finally time to go, we all thanked the volunteers and made a donation of 500 rupees. Shelters always need money, food for the animals and help. It made us feel good to help out any way we could for the care of the animals. It was a great place, and I couldn't wait to return to it.
Which of the following is NOT a reason why Keshav likes this shelter better than a zoo?
A People can get closer to the animals.
B There is a rescue story for each animal.
C The shelter has better snacks.
This is a bit confusing.....Not a reason that he likes the shelter more than the zoo... that probably means why he likes the zoo better right????so the answer should be (B)....how can it be (C)... i mean i would rather take (A) than (C) but the answer is (C)........ this is VERY CONFUSING
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.
