    Correct Answer
    A. When Uncle Jim died, he left it to them.
    Explanation
    Uncle Jim's death resulted in Sophie's family inheriting the run-down farm. This means that the farm was passed down to them as part of Uncle Jim's will or estate.

This can be inferred from the fact that she was seen sneaking around the chicken coop and was caught with a bag of chicken feed in her possession. Additionally, Sophie noticed that some of the chickens were missing after Ms. Griegson's visits. These actions suggest that Ms. Griegson had ulterior motives and was attempting to steal the unique chickens.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. Take back the three hens she had stolen.
    Explanation
    Sophie decided to go to Ms. Griegson's farm to take back the three hens she had stolen. This suggests that Sophie had previously stolen the hens from Ms. Griegson's farm and now wants to return them. The other options, such as seeing how Ms. Griegson takes care of her chickens, warning her not to steal more chickens, or helping her set up for a poultry show, do not align with the fact that Sophie had stolen the hens and wants to return them.
