Questions 31-35

Direction: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

The first thing the children wanted to do at the zoo was to ride the elephant. They were frightened as they climbed the ladder to take their seats on the swaying back of the huge beast. Elephants seem awkward creatures as they move along heavily, their legs covered with loose folds of tough skin and their trunk swinging from side to side in search of food or drink. An elephant has great strength in its trunk, and can drag heavy loads with ropes, but it can also use its trunk to pick up small articles such as coins or nuts from the ground.

After their ride on the elephant, the children went to see the lions and tigers. Crowds of people stood watching, protected from the cruel beasts by the strong metal bars of the cages.

From there, they went to see the monkeys. Those merry creatures were jumping about the rocks, swinging on the wires of their cages, or begging for the nuts from the passers-by. If anyone annoyed them, they would scold him angrily and beat their chest with their hands.
