1- 3: Read the following story and answer the questions that follow by choosing the right answer from the options given along with each question.
On the coast of Cuba lived an old fisherman. He was thin and had deep lines on the back of his neck. His skin was dark, and his hands had marks made by pulling heavy fish out of the ocean. His eyes were cheerful.
For eighty-four days the old man did not catch any fish. People said that he was unlucky. But the old man still loved the sea. On the eighty-fifth day, the old man sailed farther out to the deep sea. Soon his fishing – line was pulled gently by a big fish which was swimming very deep in the water. The fish was so powerful that it pulled the boat after it. It took the small boat far out in the sea. The old man could no longer see the land.
“Fish,” he said softly, “I will stay with you until I’m dead”.
The old man pulled the line a little tighter. But he did not dare pull it suddenly. The fish might jump and escape. But the fish was strong and brave. It pulled the boat on and on.
When the fish rose at last to the top of the water, the old man saw that it was two feet longer than his boat. The old man had seen many fish, but this one was the largest he had ever seen.
On the morning of the third day the end came. Tired and out of pain, the old man threw his warpoon into the heart of the large fish. The fish rose high out of the water, showing all its power and beauty. The next moment it was dead.
Slowly and painfully, the old man tied the fish to the side of the boat. Then he turned back and sailed towards the distant coastline. When he reached the land, no fish was left. Only the large white backbone.
The next morning the fishermen in the village stood round the small boat. They measured the big bone of the fish. It was eighteen feet long.
“What a fish it was!” Someone said, “We have never seen such a fish”.
