Mercury and the Woodman
A Woodman was felling a tree on the bank of a river, when his axe, glancing off the trunk, flew out of his hands and fell into the water. When he stood by the water’s edge was sad by his loss, Mercury … and asked him the reason his sad. On learning what had happened out pity for his distress, Mercury dived into the river and, bringing up a golden axe, asked him if that was the one he had lost. The Woodman replied that it was not, then Mercury dived a second time, and bringing up a silver axe, asked if that was his. ‘No, that is not mine either,’ said the Woodman. Once more Mercury dived into the river and brought up the missing axe. The Woodman was overjoyed at recovering his …, and thanked his benefactor warmly. The latter was so … with his honesty that he made him a present of the other two axes.
Berdasarkan ceritanya, dapat diketahui bahwa Mercury memberikan si Tukang Kayu dua buah kapak sebagai hadiah dari kejujurannya dan karena Mercury merasa senang sehingga pilihan jawaban (A) adalah yang paling tepat karena ‘pleased’ dapat bermakna ‘senang/gembira’. Pilihan (B) salah karena artinya ‘jijik’, Pilihan (C) salah karena artinya ‘terkejut’, Pilihan (D) salah karena artinya ‘khawatir’, dan (E) salah karena artinya ‘lega’.
