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 others never understand.
From the story, we know that …
many people liked the peasant
the peasant was a good man
the boulder was realy small
the king was very stingy

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)
