    2. Read the passage below and answer the questions that follows.

      Many years ago, each animal was blessed with an exceptional talent. Lion was the strongest animal and was approached for help when strength was needed. Tortoise was the wisest animal whose wisdom was highly valued at times of making decisions. Dog could sniff from far and would always alert other animals when he smelt danger. Hyena was the village witchdoctor and herbalist. Hare could hear sounds from far away.

      Every animal strived to put their talent into use for the betterment of the animal community. However one animal was not satisfied with his God-given talent. He believed that he deserved better than what he had. This was Hare. He wanted to be able to listen not only to far away sounds but also to other animals secrets. He was determined to make this happen. After thinking hard he approached Hyena the witchdoctor for a solution. Hyena listened keenly and promised him a brilliant solution the next day.

      Early morning the next day Hare arrived at Hyena's residence hoping to emerge successfully. Hyena immediately got to work. He had herbs that would help stretch Hare's ears and after that he would be able to hear all that was said around him. Hare agreed to this proposal. In the evening he left with his supposedly newly acquired talent.

      On his way home, he saw the other animals talking to each other and giggling. He couldn't hear what they were saying yet he knew he was supposed to. He began to doubt the transformation. No sooner had he entered his house than his wife collapsed. He stared into the mirror for the first time and couldn't believe what he saw.

      He looked ridiculous. He cried and asked Hyena to transform him the way he looked but it was impossible. As time went by, he could take the ridicule and embarrasment no more and thus took refuge in the bush. To this day, when Hare sees any person or animal approaching, he runs into the bush.
