Q 1 Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :
Suddenly, Bee- Mason touched my arm and pointed across the grass .“There’s something moving near that pool” he said in a strange voice. I looked where he was pointing and saw an unusual movement in the grass. It was unusual because it seemed to be happening over several feet of ground.

Meanwhile, the snake had approached to within twenty yards, and was paying no attention to me. Keeping its head an inch or two above the ground, it slid through the grass as though it had no interest in anything. Calmly and gracefully, this long, spotted, brownish green creature
