Example Question #1 : Compare And Contrast The Adventures And Experiences Of Characters: Ccss.Ela Literacy.Rl.1.9

Fox and Friends

Today, I woke up feeling sad. In a forest full of other animals, I do not have a friend. No one wants to be friends with me because I am a fox. When animals see me coming they run away.

As I walk to the pound, I hear laughing and a lot of splashing. I see a deer and a rabbit playing in the water. The deer is laughing and smiling. He looks very happy.

I decide to hide behind a bush and ask them if I can play. This way they can hear me but not see me. “Can I come play with you?” I yell.

The deer and rabbit look for me, but they cannot see me. The deer says, “Yes, but you have to stop hiding!”

When I come out the rabbit seems scared, but the deer comes straight to me and gives me a big hug. As I play in the pond with my two friends, I feel so happy.

Select the answer that best describes the deer and the fox. 

Possible Answers:

The deer was sadder than the fox. 

The fox was lonelier than the deer. 

The deer was lonelier than the fox.

The fox was happier than the deer. 

Correct answer:

The fox was lonelier than the deer. 

Explanation:

In the story, we first learn that the fox is sad because he doesn't have any friends. If you don't have any friends, you would be lonely. The deer had a friend, the rabbit, who was playing with him in the water. Because of this, the fox was lonelier than the deer.
