SUBJECT: ENGLISH LANGUAGE   NAME:…………………………………………………………………………………… Comprehension Read the passage and answer the questions that follows, THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLD A long time ago, there lived a family whose youngest boy was called Joseph. Every day, Joseph took his family’s goats to eat the grass on the side of the hill, close to a stream. He made extra money for his family by taking the other villagers’ goats out too. However, Joseph was quite a naught boy. His parents told him to look after the goats each day to keep him out of trouble. At first, Joseph was happy with h9is job because it meant that no one would tell him what to do. However, after a few weeks, Joseph grew bored. He started throwing stones into the stream and complained to himself that he had nothing  to do. This was because he took the same goats to the same place and sat under the same tree everyday. He was now very bored and wanted some excitement in his life. One of his responsibilities was to watch out for wolves. These are wild animals that look like big fierce dogs. There was a large pack of wolves living in the hills and they would often come down to the village and kill goats. Joseph was particularly fed up, and he often sat down, thinking about the wolves. Then he had an idea. He decided to make something exciting happen.   Answer these questions: 1.)   What did Joseph do everyday? __________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________   2.)   Why did Joseph’s parents tell him to look after the goats? _____________________________  ___________________________________________________________________________   3.)   Why was Joseph happy with his job at first? _______________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________   4.)   Where were the wolves living? _________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________   5.)   Why did Joseph watch over the goats?____________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________   Section B: English Grammar Choose the correct answer from the options A, B, C and D. 6.)   Please don’t _____________ to pay your bills (a) forgetting (b) forget (c) forgets (d) forgot 7.)   “__________ I join you?” asked Yetunde (a) may (b) please (c) would (d) might 8.)   Don’t _________ the music so loud,” said Mrs. Tan.
