    Read this sentence from the story.          Pepita mumbled to herself, “It is not a wonderful thing at all, not when you have to speak twice.”          Which answer gives the best meaning for the word mumbled as it is used in the sentence in the box?

    • D.

      Saying something angrily

    Correct Answer
    A. Saying softly or unclearly
    Explanation
    The word "mumbled" in the sentence suggests that Pepita is speaking softly or unclearly. This is supported by the phrase "not when you have to speak twice," implying that her words were not easily understood or heard.

      She would ignore the people speaking Spanish to her.

    • B.

      Pepita would pretend to talk Spanish.

    • D.

      Pepita pretend that she understood them then leave.

    Correct Answer
    C. She would try to remember Spanish words she had learned from other people.
    Explanation
    If Pepita could only speak English, the most likely thing she would do is try to remember Spanish words she had learned from other people. This suggests that she values her ability to communicate in both languages and wants to maintain her knowledge of Spanish, even if she can only speak English. Ignoring people speaking Spanish to her or pretending to talk Spanish would not be effective ways for her to navigate her language barrier, and pretending to understand them and then leaving would not help her maintain her Spanish skills.
