Jawaban (many people liked the peasant) tidak tepat karena pernyataan tersebut tidak ada dalam teks. Jawaban (the boulder was realy small) dan (the king was very stingy) salah karena berlawanan dengan isi bacaan yaitu pada pilihan jawaban (the boulder was realy small) kalimat kedua paragraf pertama “… removed the huge rock ” (memindahkan batu besar) dan pada jawaban (the king was very stingy) tepatnya pada kalimat pertama paragraph terakhir “ The purse contained a lot of gold coin and a note indicating the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway ” (Dompet itu berisikan banyak koin emas dan surat yang menyatakan emas tersebut untuk orang yang memindahkan batu dari jalanan)
