A week later to almost surprise the farmer found and egg in his yard. This was no ordinary egg. It was a golden egg. He was suddenly overcome with joy.

Soal ini menanyakan tentang pelajaran yang dapat kita petik dari cerita di atas.
Cerita di atas menceritakan tentang seorang petani miskin kehilangan seluruh ternaknya karena banjir. Kemudian, suatu hari ada seorang lelaki tua datang memberinya angsa. Seminggu kemudian petani menemukan telur di halaman rumahnya. Setelah itu, mata pencahariannya meningkat pesat tetapi petani itu telah melupakan kesulitannya sebelumnya. Dia menjadi malas, sombong dan boros. Anehnya, angsa hanya bertelur satu telur emas setiap enam bulan. Petani serakah kehilangan pasiennya dan menyembelih angsanya.

Pernyataan tersebut sesuai dengan pilihan jawaban "it taught not to be greedy and contented with what we had" yang artinya "itu mengajarkan untuk tidak serakah dan puas dengan apa yang kita miliki".
Jadi, jawaban yang benar adalah A.
