Read the story and answer the question.

Once upon a time, there was a wealthy woman that had very poor eyesight. She decided to call a doctor to ask if he could restore her eyesight. The doctor promised to cure her but told her that she had to pay him a huge fee. He also told her that throughout the treatment she had to keep her eyes closed. The woman agreed to both requirements.

The doctor began the treatment in the women’s home. Every day the doctor stole something from the lady’s house. The treatment lasted a lengthy period of time. Finally, when he had emptied her house, the doctor told her that he had finished her treatment and that eyesight was restored.

The woman was very happy that the treatment was over, but she refused to pay the doctor. The doctor was very angry that she refused to pay his hefty fee. He told her that he was taking her to court. She just laughed at him.

When the judge asked the woman to explain why she didn’t pay the doctor, the woman said, “Sir, before the operation, I was partially blind, but at least I could see the things in my home.” She continued, “But now after the treatment, I am unable to see anything in my home. The woman solemnly told the judge, “I must be totally blind because I can see nothing.”

The judge looked at the doctor, who hung his head in shame. He realized that the woman knew that he had stolen all her things. He felt ashamed and returned everything he had stolen. The doctor also said the woman did not owe him a fee for the treatment.

Read the story and answer the question.

One day, a small little baby elephant was happily dancing through the jungle, nodding his head and lifting up his trunk to trumpet loudly.

The loud sound woke up a monkey who was sleeping in a tree nearby. He was very angry. He scolded the elephant and asked him to keep quiet.

“You silly animal”, he said. “Can’t you keep quiet? I’m sleeping”.

“Oh, sorry”, said the little elephant and walked on. After sometime, the little elephant reached a river and saw some beautiful swans there. He gazed at the beautiful birds. The swans looked at him and began to laugh.

“Oh! Look at that big creature,” they said. “What a long nose, his ears are like fans, and look at his skin, it’s much too big for him. He looks like a big wrinkled bag with all of those folds!” They laughed at him, and swam away.

The little elephant was very sad. He tried to smooth out his skin with his trunk but it was no good. He thought, “Why am I so ugly?" "Let me hide myself so that no one can see me.”

He tried to hide himself in a thick bush but he disturbed some nests. The birds flew above his head crying loudly while trying to peck at him.

The little elephant ran for cover. He went behind a big rock to hide. Suddenly, he saw a big bear coming towards him. It was growling, and appeared to be very angry. The little elephant was very frightened and trumpeted loudly. Just as he trumpeted, he heard a loud crashing and stomping. A herd of wrinkled elephants came charging to the rescue.

Seeing the herd, the frightened bear ran away.

The little elephant joyfully ran to the big elephants, thanked them, and said, “I wish I could be like you. You’re so mighty and strong.” he continued.

“But you are,” replied the elephants “You’re a perfect little elephant.”

The little elephant danced for joy, he trumpeted loudly, and walked away happily with the other elephants following behind.
