SECTION A READING
 
Q.1 Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
 
FIGS FOR THE EMIR
 
(1) Hassan was generously rewarded when he gifted the Emir some pomegranates. A few months later, he got a bumper crop of turnips and decided to present a sackful to the Emir. When his neighbour got to know this, he said to Hassan, “How could you even think of presenting such a lowly vegetable to the Emir?” he yelled. “They’ll drive you away! Take some figs instead. Your figs are the sweetest I’ve ever tasted!!”
 
(2) Unfortunately for him, the day he brought the figs to the royal court, the Emir was in a foul mood. When he was told that a farmer had brought figs he was so annoyed that he ordered his guards to pelt the farmer with the figs and drive him away.
 
(3) Hassan was bewildered when the guards began pelting him with the figs. He tried to protect his face with his hands, all the while shouting, “Thank you, Qadir!” This aroused the Emir’s curiosity.
 
(4) “Who is this Qadir, and why are you thanking him?”
 
(5) “Qadir is my neighbour”, explained the farmer., “I was bringing turnips, and he advised me to take figs instead. My head would have broken by now if I had brought turnips”.
