Model Test:Eng-1st Paper

Mr. Grasshopper didn’t like to work during the lovely hot summer days. ‘It’s not really necessary,’ he told Mr. Ant. ‘Why do you work so hard when there’s plenty of food to eat?’ Mr. Grasshopper asked him. ‘There is plenty of food now,’ agreed Mr. Ant. ‘But what about the future?’
‘Oh, the future!’ exclaimed Mr. Grasshopper. ‘Why do you care about the future, Mr. Ant? It really doesn’t exit! Only the present exists!’ Mr. Grasshopper laughed. Then he started to sing a song. Mr. Grasshopper sang very well and Mr. Ant stood and listened to him.
‘Would you like to sing a song with me?’ Mr. Grasshopper asked Mr. Ant. ‘Oh, thank you,’ replied Mr. Ant politely. ‘But I’m afraid. I don’t know it. What’s it called?’ ‘Well, really it’s a poem,’ exclaimed Mr. Grasshopper. ‘It’s called Leisure, and it’s my favorite, because I’m very fond of leisure,’ Mr. Grasshopper laughed loudly.
‘But I do work sometimes, you know, Mr. Ant’, continued Mr. Grasshopper more seriously. ‘Guess, who wrote the music!’ ‘Would you like me to tell you?’ ‘Yes’, I would,’ replied Mr. Ant. ‘Was it written by someone famous?’ ‘Yes, that’s right,’ laughed Mr. Grasshopper. ‘It was written by me! And now I’ll sing it to you again!’
