In ancient times, the king placed a boulder on a roadway. Then, he hid and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it.

                Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything to get the big stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. On approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After lots of pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. As the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying on the road where the boulder had been.

                The purse contained a lot of gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many other never understand.

What does the last paragraph tell us?

  1. The roads that people built with the king

  2. The person who liked keeping the roads well

  3. The purpose of putting the boulder and purse.

  4. The way the peasant removed the boulder on the road.

Jawaban "The roads that people built with the king" dan "The person who liked keeping the roads well" salah karena pernyataan tersebut tidak ada dalam teks di atas. Jawaban "The way the peasant removed the boulder on the road." juga tidak tepat karena jawaban tersebut adalah isi dari paragraf kedua bukan ketiga. Sedangkan jawaban "The purpose of putting the boulder and purse" menunjukkan isi dari keseluruhan paragraph terakhir.
