    The Wolf and the Goat A wolf saw a goat grazing at the edge of a high cliff. The wolf smacked his lips at the thought of a fine goat dinner. “My dear friend,” said the wolf in his sweetest voice. “Aren’t you afraid you will fall down from that cliff? Come down here and graze on this fine grass beside me on safe, level ground.” “No, thank you,” said the goat. “Well then,” said the wolf, “Aren’t you cold up there in the wind? You would be warmer grazing down here beside me in this sheltered area.” “No, thank you,” said the goat. “But the grass tastes better down here!” said the exasperated wolf. “Why dine alone?” “My dear wolf,” the goat finally said, “Are you quite sure that it is my dinner you are worrying about and not your own?” (P12.19-22.UN.0809)   What did the wolf ask when he saw the goat grazing at the edge of a high cliff?

    • A.

      To be his friend

    • B.

      To graze on the level ground.

    • C.

      To climb up higher

    • D.

      To be dinner

    Correct Answer
    B. To graze on the level ground.
    Explanation
    The wolf asked the goat to graze on the level ground instead of the edge of the high cliff. The wolf tried to convince the goat by suggesting that it would be safer and more comfortable to graze on the ground rather than risking falling down from the cliff or being cold in the wind. However, the goat saw through the wolf's ulterior motive and realized that the wolf was actually concerned about his own dinner rather than the goat's well-being.

    • A.

      Don’t look down on other creatures.

      Don’t judge others by their appearance.

    • D.

      Don’t easily beat other creatures.

    Correct Answer
    B. Don’t be gullible.
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that we should not be gullible. The story demonstrates this by showing how the wolf tries to manipulate the goat by pretending to be concerned for its well-being. However, the goat sees through the wolf's deceit and realizes that the wolf is only looking out for its own interests. This teaches us the lesson of not trusting someone solely based on their outward behavior or appearance.

      The wolf was a helpful animal.

    • C.

      The wolf was eager to eat the goat.

    • D.

      The goat was going to fight with the wolf.

    Correct Answer
    C. The wolf was eager to eat the goat.
    Explanation
    From the story, it is evident that the wolf was eager to eat the goat. The wolf tried to lure the goat down from the high cliff by offering various reasons like fear of falling down, being cold, and better tasting grass. However, the goat saw through the wolf's intentions and realized that the wolf was more concerned about his own dinner rather than the goat's well-being. This indicates that the wolf had ulterior motives and was indeed eager to eat the goat.

    The Old Grandfather and His Grandson Once upon a time, there was a very old grandfather. His eyes were almost blind, his ears were deaf, and his knees shook. When he sat at the table, he could not hold a spoon strongly. He spilled soup on the tablecloth. Besides this, some of his soup would run back out of his mouth. His son and his son's wife were annoyed by this. Finally, they made the old grandfather sit in the corner behind the stove. They gave him not enough food in a clay bowl. He sat there and looked sadly at the table. He was almost crying. One day the old grandfather could not hold the bowl because his hands were too weak. The bowl fell to the ground and broke. The woman scolded. However, the old grandfather did not say anything. He could only cry. Then, they bought him a wooden bowl and made him eat from it. Once when they were all sitting there, the four-year-old grandson put some pieces of wood together on the floor. His father asked him what he was doing. The little grandson said that he was making a little trough for his father and mother to eat from when they were old." The man and the woman looked at one another. They began to cry. They brought the old grandfather to the table immediately. Since then, they always let him eat there. If he spilled a little, they did not say anything.

Outraged, he growled, "You are muddying my drinking water. Now, I shall eat you." The lamb protested, "But, Sir, how can I be muddying your drinking water? I am farther downstream than you are. The water is flowing from your part of the stream to where I am." "Upstream or downstream, your drinking is muddying my water, and I shall eat you."
