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.
