Q. Reading Comprehension

In the early days, when the earth was young, the land was hot and dry. Water was scarce as a hen’s teethacross the great land and scattered. The spring was a haven to animals far and wide. At one such spring a monkey came along, and greed lead him down a dark path. He made himself guard of the spring. He lit a fire to warm himself at night.

He chased off other animals who wanted a drink, telling them that the water was his. Many days and nights passed, and the animals grew weary with thirst thanks to the cruel-hearted greedy monkey.

One morning a zebra came to quench his thirst after a long and tiring journey. In the early days the zebra didn’t have his stripes, he wore a coat of fine white fur. As he approached the water the monkey jumped up angrily and said “Go away, I am the lord of this water and it is mine!”

The thirsty zebra challenged him and said “Water belongs to everyone, not just you.” This infuriated the monkey who then shouted “If you want a drink of water, you’ll have to fight me for it.” The two animals were soon engaged in a fierce combat that seemed to go on forever. The monkey used his strength and large teeth, the zebra kicked and bit back.

Finally the zebra gave a mighty kick and sent the monkey flying onto the tall rocks behind the pool of water. The zebra kicked so hard he stumbled and staggered backwards, falling into monkey’s fire. This sent burning sticks flying high into the air, and as they fell back to earth they skimmed the zebras beautiful white coat. This left black scorch marks all over the zebra.

Hurt, the zebra ran off into the grassland where it lives to this day. Eventually it came to accept its stripes as something that made him stand out.
