SOAL UJIAN HARIAN BAHASA INGGRIS

On Saturday night, we went to the Town Hall. It was the last day of the year and a
large crowd of people had gathered under the Town Hall clock. It would strike
twelve in twenty minutes time. Fifteen minutes passed and then, at five to
twelve, the clock stopped. The big minute hand did not move. We waited and
waited, but nothing happened. Suddenly someone shouted,Its two minutes past
twelve! The clock has stopped!
I looked at my watch. It was true. The big clock refused to welcome the New Year.
At that moment, everybody began to laugh and sing.
