Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. Shade on your answer sheet the space which bears the same letter as the answer you have choosen.


My two friends and i were sitting astride a log which floated on the water, with the intent of catching fish with the hooks and lines we had made. Our attention was suddenly attracted by ripple on the sea, just a few meters away from us. Ibimari shouted to us to paddle in that direction, and we might have a chance of catching it. But, Osazua, instead of doing as Ibimari said, replied in a cold, serious voice, ”pull up your line, Ibimari seize your paddle” quick, its a crocodile.”

The horror with which we heard this may well be imagined, for it must be remembered that our legs were hanging down in the water and we dared not pull them up without upsetting the log. Ibimari immediately pulled in his line, and seizing his paddle, worked as hard as he could. While we also did our best to make for shore.

But we were a long way off, and the log being heavy, only moved slowly through the water. We now saw the crocodile quite distinctly, swimming round and round us, its head sticking out above the water. It was making up its mind to attack us.

Osazua called to us to paddle for our lives then suddenly he shouted, “look out! Here he comes!”. In a second we saw the crocodile swim fast towards us. But we all made a great noise with our paddles which frightened it away for that time. “throw the fish to it” cried Osazua in an excited voice.” “we‘ll reach the shore in time.
