      Did not have much money

    Correct Answer
    A. Was a good and kind man.
    Explanation
    The given answer, "was a good and kind man," is the correct explanation because the previous statements about Darkie and Pet's master being good and kind imply that he possessed positive qualities. The other statements about him not liking running with other horses, wanting to get rid of them, and not having much money do not directly support or explain his character as a good and kind man.

    • C.

      Was dangerous.

    • D.

      Was stopped after the horse fell.

    Correct Answer
    C. Was dangerous.
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that rabbit hunting was dangerous. This implies that there were potential risks or hazards associated with this activity. It can be inferred that either the rabbits posed a threat to the horses or that the hunting process itself was perilous. The fact that the activity was stopped after a horse fell further supports the notion that it was indeed dangerous.

    Correct Answer
    B. Had a star on his head.
    Explanation
    The given answer, "had a star on his head," is correct because it is the only statement that provides a specific physical characteristic of Darkie. The other statements mention his color, an injury, and his emotions, but do not mention any distinctive feature on his head. Therefore, the correct answer is the statement that sets Darkie apart from the other horses by mentioning the star on his head.

    • D.

      Because he was being sent away

    Correct Answer
    C. So he would get used to the loud noise
    Explanation
    Darkie was sent to a farm where a train ran by so he would get used to the loud noise. This suggests that Darkie was sent to the farm specifically to acclimate to the loud noise of the passing train. This could be for various reasons such as preparing Darkie for a future environment where loud noises are common or to help him overcome any fear or anxiety he may have had towards loud noises. The purpose of this training was to ensure that Darkie would not be startled or frightened by the loud noise of the train.

    Explanation
    The given answer, "was something Darkie had to get used to," suggests that wearing a saddle was initially unfamiliar or uncomfortable for Darkie, but over time, he had to adapt and become accustomed to it. This implies that Darkie had to go through a process of adjustment and acceptance in order to feel comfortable with wearing a saddle.

    Explanation
    Darkie's mother advised him to carry his head high. This means that she encouraged him to have confidence and pride in himself. By carrying his head high, Darkie would be showing that he is not afraid or intimidated by others. It is a metaphorical expression that suggests self-assurance and a positive attitude.
