The following text is for questions 6 to 10.
Once upon a time, there lived an orphan named Yaoh. As winter rolled in, he had no wood to start up a fire to warm up the
house. He was cold. So, he decided to look for some wood to build a fire. He went searching down a flat hill with an axe. Yaoh looked and
looked, as he came across a huge tree. He was thrilled and started chopping it. The echoes of the chopping sound lingered across the
mountains.
On top of the tree was an eagle’s nest. She heard and felt the chopping vibrations and thought it was an earthquake. “What is that
annoying noise?!” she asked herself. Frightened, the mother eagle looked down to see what was going on, only to find out someone was
about to hop her family down. The mother eagle swiftly flew down and asked, “What are you doing?” Yaoh replied, “I am cold, I have no
wood to build a fire so I came down here to get some wood. I need this wood to heat up my house.” The eagle looked at him with fear in
her eyes and said, “You’re going to destroy my family if you chop this tree down. My babies have no feathers yet so we cannot move.”
Yaoh felt sorry for the eagle. He then stopped chopping. When he was about to leave, the mother eagle said, “If all you need is wood, I
can take you to the moon to get some gold so you can buy wood. Just go home, get some rest, come back very early tomorrow morning
with a big bag. I will take you there to get some gold.” After the mother eagle assured the orphan Yaoh a few times, he believed her and
went home. Yaoh got as much material as he could to sew a bag. He was poor so he didn’t have much. He spent that whole night sewing
the bag and before he realized, it was morning already.He rushed down to the valley where the eagle said she would meet him.Then,
Yaoh climbed onto the eagle’s back, and she flew him all the way to the moon. He stuffed his bag with as much gold as he could. “The
sun is going to rise and burn us! You’d better
hurry up!” the eagle said. Frightened but satisfied with what he got, he jumped up onto the eagle’s back and they flew off as the sun
started rising. “Whew! You almost got us burned!” the eagle cried out. After this, Yaoh lived like a rich man. He bought himself wood,
clothes, food, all that a rich man could buy, but most importantly he built himself a house.

The Three Brothers and the Pot of Porridge
Three brothers were traveling all day through the dense rainforest. They were very tired and needed a suitable place to rest for the
night, a place where they would be safe from nocturnal animals.They spotted a little isolated hut in the distance. When they arrived at
the hut, they met a kindly old woman who invited them in and offered them a place to spend the night. The old woman offered them
some porridge which she was cooking in an iron pot over some firewood. The brothers declined because they knew that the old woman
was very poor,and there was enough porridge only for herself.Then, they went to sleep. However,sometime in the night, the youngest of
the three brothers wokeup. He was very hungry. So he went into the kitchen to see if there was any porridge left. He saw that there was
enough porridge for one person. He ate it. However, he then realized his folly, and decided to cover it up. He went out to pick some
stones to put in the pot. He hoped the old woman would not notice.
The three brothers were up early the next morning to continue on their journey. They bade farewell to the old woman and thanked
her for her kindness.The old woman discovered the stones in her pot soon after the brothers left and immediately set out after them.
She accused them of stealing her porridge and filling her pot with stones. The three brothers denied doing it, so the old woman
challenged them to take a test.They went to a nearby river which had a log laying across it. Each one of them would have to walk across
the river on the log.The first two brothers walked confidently across the river. But the youngest brother was so scared as he walked. His
step faltered several times, and he eventually fell into the river.The youngest brother then asked for help. Because the woman was kind,
she helped him with her boat. The youngest brother was regretful and expressed his gratitude to the woman many times. To express his
gratitude, he then worked for the woman as her servant.
