Group A
1. Read the following passage carefully:
Two men were traveling together, when a bear suddenly met them on their path. One of the men
quickly climbed into a tree and concealed himself in the branches. The other, seeing that he
would be attacked, fell flat on the ground. When the bear came up and nudged him with his
snout, and smelled him all over, he held his breath and feigned the appearance of death as well
as he could. The bear soon left him, for it is said bears will not touch a dead body.
When the bear was quite gone, the other traveler descended from the tree, and jocularly
inquired of his friend what the bear had whispered in his ear. “He gave me this advice,” his
companion replied. “Never travel with a friend who deserts you at the approach of danger.”
