Part 04 – This part is for the Q and A session. Here I will tell you a story and ask you questions, and you will have to listen carefully and answer those questions.

Once upon a time, there was a kid called John. One day he went to the playground to play cricket. But no one was at the ground. Near the big farm tree, there was a big bench.

John went there and sat on that bench, hoping that someone would come to play with him. John waited for more than two hours, but no one showed up.

Then he felt tired of waiting and stood up to go back home. But unfortunately, the rain came from nowhere. He ran to the house as fast as he could. When he went back home, his mom was at the front door, worrying about where her kid was. John Ran to his mother, and mom gave him a big hug.

  • What was the kid’s name?
  • Why did he go to the playground?
  • What happened after he went to the playground?
  • Why did he go to the bench? 
  • How long does he wait?
  • Why did he have to run to the home?
  • Why did his mom worry?
  • What did her mother do after John came to the home?
