Story A Eleven-year-old Dina visited a zoo last year. There was a man with a hat watching the gorillas. When the wind blew, the mans hat fell down in front of the gorillas cage. The man climbed down to get it. One of the gorillas put its hand outside the cage to get his hat too. But the gorilla didnt take the hat. It caught the man by his arm. Gorillas are big and strong animals. The man was very frightened. When Dina saw this, she climbed down to help. She was carrying a bag and she hit the gorilla on its head. When Dina did this, the gorilla dropped the mans arm and the man was safe. Story B One night, nine-year-old Ali was reading a story in bed. His two sisters were sleeping in the bedroom next to his. His father was watching television downstairs. Suddenly, Ali smelled smoke. There was a fire on the stairs to the bedrooms. Ali shouted. Alis father couldnt climb the stairs because of the fire, so he ran from the house and stood under Alis bedroom window. Ali picked up his small sister from her bed and carefully dropped her into his fathers arms. Then he did the same thing with his baby sister. Finally, Ali jumped down and his father caught him safely.

Officer Marzouk continued to ask questions. Marzouk: What did you do, Mr. El Masry, when the guard phoned you? Mohab : I was very worried. I came here immediately to see what had happened. Marzouk: What did you see? Mohab : Osman is telling the truth. When I arrived, he showed me everything. The thieves had broken the glass door to the shop and had turned off the electricity. I saw the glass on the road outside the shop. After Osman had fainted, the thieves broke into my room and stole the money from there. Marzouk: Thank you, Mr. El Masry. Now Osman, please show me where to switch off the electricity. Osman : Certainly. Please come this way, officer. We switch off the electricity in my room at the back of the shop. Narrator: But Officer Marzouk did not follow the guard. He called to the two policemen with him. Marzouk: Osman is the thief. He stole the money from Mr. El Masrys office. Officer Marzouk knew that Osman was the thief for these reasons: First, the broken glass was outside the shop, so someone had broken it from inside the shop. Second, Osman said the thieves had turned off the electricity before he came out of his room. However, he was sitting in the room where you must go to turn off the electricity.
