    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Using context clues determine which creature Doon found in the tunnels? His father had been at least a little bit right: there were interesting things in the Pipeworks if you paid attention. Already he had found three new crawling creatures; a black beetle the size of a pinhead, a moth with furry wings, and the best of all, a creature with a soft, shiny body and a small, spiral-patterned shell on its back. Just after he found this one, while he was sitting on the floor watching in fascination as the creature crept up his arm, a couple of workers came by and saw him. They burst into laughter. "It's bug-boy!" one of them said. "He's collecting bugs for his lunch!" Enraged, Doon jumped up and shouted at them. His sudden motion made the creature fall off his arm to the ground, and Doon felt a crunch beneath his foot. The laughing workers didn't notice - they tossed a few more taunts at him and walked on - but Doon knew instantly what he's done. He lifted his foot and looked at the squashed mess underneath.

    • A.

      Snail

    • B.

      Rat

    • C.

      Chicken

    • D.

      Ant

    Correct Answer
    A. Snail
    Explanation
    Based on the passage, Doon found a creature with a soft, shiny body and a small, spiral-patterned shell on its back. This description matches that of a snail. Additionally, when the workers saw Doon with the creature, they referred to him as "bug-boy" and joked about him collecting bugs for lunch. This suggests that the creature he found was indeed a snail, a type of bug-like creature.

This suggests that Doon was looking for information related to fires and was unable to find any. As a result, he decided to shift his focus to reading about the meaning of words and phrases instead.
