It took us half an hour to reach the school. I saw many students on the school campus. Some were playing and some were talking to each other. I didn't know anyone, So I was a little afraid. My mother soon took me to the Head teacher. He asked me a few questions and I answered them intelligently. 

The Headteacher was very pleased. He put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Good! You're a highly intelligent child. You know a lot. I'll take you in my school. I hope you'll be happy here." 

I was admitted to class 1. The Head teacher was a very nice person. He called a teacher and said to her, "Ms Laila, this is Flora. She is a new student in class 1. Take her to the class, please.' 

Ms Laila took me to the class. The class teacher welcomed me and gave me a seat. All the students in the class were staring at me. I felt a bit nervous to see all the new faces. But soon I felt easy. I could make friends with two or three students sitting close to me.

Section A: Reading (40 marks) 

1. Read the following text and answer the question that follows. 

“Don’t be sad, Farabi, and don’t think seriously about what your friend Harun did. ... I know a story about friends. Listen.” Two friends were walking through a desert. After a while they had a quarrel, and one friend slapped the other in the face. The friend who got slapped was hurt. But without saying anything he wrote in the sand: Today my best friend slapped me in the face. They kept walking until they found an oasis. There they decided to take a bath. The one who was slapped before got stuck in the quicksand and started going down, but his friend saved him. After he was saved he wrote on a stone: Today my best friend saved my life. The friend who slapped and saved his best friend asked, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone . Why?” The other friend replied, “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in the sand. The wind can erase it away. But when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it on stone, so no wind can erase it.” “Do you know the moral of the story?” Flora asked.
