    Vincent's heart pounded furiously when he saw the white crystalline substance fall out of his sister's jeans. It was Vincent's turn to do the laundry for the week and he had taken the jeans from the laundry basket and emptied its pocket. His mind raced to recall the anti-drug talk he had attended in his school. He walked to his school bag and pulled out a pamphlet the school had given him. He stared intently at the white substance in his hand and stared at the picture of 'Ice', also known as 'Crystal'. He felt uneasy as he read about what 'Ice' could do to one's body. It said, 'Ice' abusers become mentally dependent on the drug and prolonged use can lead to inflammation of the heart muscle and even death. "Hmm..." Vincent thought, "to think of it, Betty has been acting rather strangely. She burst into tears last week, locks herself up in her room all the time and hardly plays with me anymore. She only goes out once a day when I'm away in school." He sighed. He wondered if he should tell his parents. Their parents loved both him and his sister, who had just turned fifteen two weeks ago. "No," he decided, "I'll ask Betty first. If it is really serious, I'll consult Father." He knocked on his sister's door. Mumbles and slamming of drawers could be heard. The door slowly opening. He gasped. His sister looked like the living dead. Her face was pale and her lips were chapped and dry. His voice came out squeaky as he said, "Sis, are you alright?" She curtly replied, "Scram! Can't you see I've got better things to do than to talk to you?" A lump formed in Vincent's throat. During the past twelve years of his life, she had never spoken rudely to him. In fact, she loved him deeply and took care of him when their parents were working till late into the night. Q1) When Vincent saw the white substance fall from his sister's jeans, he ________________.
    • A. 

      Was furious

    • B. 

      Quickly emptied it

    • C. 

      Recalled a talk he had attended

    • D. 

      Threw it into the laundry basket
