TEST 18 A

(Module 18)

Reading
F. Read the story and, for each question, choose A, B, C or D.

A pale, yellow moon was rising as I was walking home from my friends house. We had spent the evening
babysitting her younger sister and had watched two really frightening horror films on TV.
Imagine my shock when, suddenly, from the distance I heard a loud cry and saw a strange white form flying
towards me at top speed through the air. My mouth opened but no sound came out. The terror I felt stopped
me from screaming for help. I fell to the ground to escape as I was certain it was a ghost. I kept my eyes
tightly shut, in case I would end up staring into the eyes of a terrible monster.
After a couple of minutes, when I realised that I hadnt been hurt, I carefully opened my eyes and looked
around. It was then that I heard the hooting coming from a nearby tree. I looked up and saw a large, white
owl sitting on a branch, watching me with what seemed to be a puzzled expression on its face.
I could have kicked myself for being so stupid. Its strange how the mind can play tricks on you. I promised
myself that that was the last time I would go wandering around late at night after watching horror films!

A babysitting her sister.
B babysitting her sisters child.

C a car.
D a man.

37 When the writer saw the ghost


A she ran away.
B she screamed for help.
C she couldnt scream for help.
D she knew it wasnt real.

40 At the end of the story, the writer felt


A frightened.
