The Old Man and the Durian Tree
In a very quiet little village, lived an old man whose age was over 80 years old. He was planting a durian tree when a neighbour observed him. The neighbour asked the old man, “Do you expect to eat durian from that tree? The durian tree will take about 8 years to bear fruit.”
The old man rested on his spade and smiled. He said, “No, at my age I know I won’t. All my life I have been enjoying durians, but never from a tree I have planted before. I wouldn’t have had durians if other men haven’t done what I’m doing now. I am just trying to pay the other men who have planted durians for me.” No wonder he looked so happy.
We should give first and can get something in return. We will not only get what we want but will actually be really happy in the end, because we need to sow first before we can reap.
The neighbour wondered about the old man because...
the old man loved planting durian tree
he planted a tree that took time to bear fruit
the old man planted a tree to sell the fruit
the old man enjoyed eating durian so much
Para penduduk heran kepada pria tua itu karena ia menanam buah yang lama untuk berbuah. Hal ini tercantum pada kalimat terakhir paragraf pertama, The durian tree will take about 8 years to bear fruit (Pohon durian membutuhkan waktu 8 tahun untuk berbuah). Maka jawaban B adalah jawaban yang tepat.
