Once upon the time, somewhere in the deep of the jungle, The Birds and the Beasts declared war
against each other. No compromise was possible, and so they went at it tooth and claw. It is said the
quarrel grew out of the persecution the race of Geese suffered at the teeth of the Fox family. The
Beasts, too, had cause for fight. The Eagle was constantly pouncing on the Hare, and the Owl dined
daily on Mice. It was a terrible battle. Many a Hare and many a Mouse died. Chickens and Geese fell
by the score—and the victor always stopped for a feast. Meanwhile the Bat family had not openly
joined either side. They were a very politic race. So when they saw the Birds getting the better of it,
they were Birds for all there was in it. But when the tide of battle turned, they immediately sided with
the Beasts. When the battle was over, the conduct of the Bats was discussed at the peace conference.
Such deceit was unpardonable, and Birds and Beasts made common cause to drive out the Bats. And
since then the Bat family hides in dark towers and deserted ruins, flying out only in the night.

Text for questions number 23 to 26.

Last week my friend and I were bored after three weeks of holidays, so we rode our bikes to Smith
Beach, which is only five kilometers from where I live. When we arrived at the beach, we were
surprised to see there was hardly anyone there.
After having a quick dip in the ocean, which was really cold, we realized one reason there were not
many people there. It was also quite windy. After we bought some hot chips at the take away store
nearby, we rode our bikes down the beach for a while, on the hard, damp part of the sand. We had the
wind behind us and, before we knew it, we were many miles down the beach.
Before we made the long trip back, we decided to paddle our feet in the water for a while, and then sit
down for a rest. While we were sitting on the beach, just chatting, it suddenly dawned on us that all the
way back, we would be riding into the strong wind.
When we finally made it back home, we were both totally exhausted! But we learned some good
lessons that day.
