Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Fiona walked across the kitchen to the far end where she saw a door leading to the backyard of the house. When she tried to open the door to the back she struggled because it was locked. She thought that this was strange because it had never been locked before and she had no idea where the key was. There was music playing in the background and she noticed that it was her father's favourite song about a cowboy or something; it wasn't a tune that she particularly favoured.
She chose to go and find her mother who she thought might be at the front of the house on the veranda with her uncle and aunty. It turned out that her mother was with them and that she had left the key on the table in the kitchen. Fiona went back and checked but couldn't find it. She looked around and eventually found it on the sideboard next to the fruit bowl.
When Fiona eventually got outside into the back garden it had started to rain lightly and it made the garden look like a movie set. She set up her table and got her tea and book and sat down to relax. As she did she heard a loud banging noise coming from over the wall. This was not good, and it was really vexing her and ruining her quiet time. Fiona decided to text her neighbour who was in the same year as her at school. She asked what all the noise was about and how long it would last. There was no reply to her text, so she packed up and went inside again.
Where did her mother leave the key?

AWith her uncle
BOn the table
CNext to the fruit bowl
DIn the door


It is also Fruit Bowl

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
It was a glorious sunny day in southern France and three friends, Jimmy, Benoit and Pierre, were walking to school. Jimmy hadn't done his homework and was trying to persuade the other boys that it would be a good idea not to go to school. Although the other boys had dutifully done theirs, Benoit did not think his was very good, and Pierre loved being out in the sunshine and really did not want to spend all morning in a boring maths lesson.
When the three boys reached the small footbridge that crossed their local river, Jimmy waved a stick in the air and suggested that they stop there and play a game. They could decide to go to school a bit later and, although they would probably be disciplined, they would at least miss some of the lessons. Jimmy also hoped that he might get away with not handing his homework in, although he did not share this with his friends. Benoit and Pierre agreed to this plan and started to look on the path for suitable sticks.
After a few moments the boys examined each other's sticks. Jimmy had selected his first, when he proposed the idea, and his was about 10 cm long and quite straight. Benoit's was shorter, had a kink in it and a leaf growing from one end. Pierre's was the longest and also had several branches. When they were satisfied that all sticks were suitably distinguishable they dangled them over the side of the bridge and counted to three. On the count of three, they dropped the sticks so that, when they hit the torrent of water below, they would flow under the bridge. The boys then ran to the other side and waited, peering down to see which one would emerge first. On this first round of the game, Benoit's stick came through before the others which meant he won. Strangely, Jimmy's completely disappeared, and they presumed it must have got stuck or sunk. They liked this game a lot, no skill was needed but they could still be competitive and experimental with the sticks they chose. They played it for a few hours and completely missed maths class.

Read the following events. Which was last in the sequence?

AThe boys found sticks.
BThe boys reached a river.
CThe boys walked to school.
DThe boys looked into the river.


The answer should be (B) right? why (D)?
