Read the passage below and answer the questions below.

Long ago, a wicked and lazy hunter was sitting under a tree, gazing idly at a large clearing below where a herd of fat antelopes were peacefully grazing. The hunter was thinking that is was far too hut to bother himself with a long and tiring stalk through the bushes, when he suddenly noticed a movement off to the right. It was a female cheetah which had chosen this herd to hunt.

Keeping downwind of the herd, she was moving closer to them slowly, inch by inch and keeping well under cover. The hunter watched, fascinated, as she crept closer and closer to an antelope which had unwisely wandered away from the main herd.

Suddenly, she gathered her long legs under her and sprang forward like an arrow. With dazzling speed she raced down upon the antelope and caught it just as it started to leap away. Panting from her effort, the cheetah dragged her prize away to some shade on the edge of the clearing. The hunter watched, marvelling at the speed and skill he had just witnessed. But as he watched, he saw to his surprise that three beautiful cheetah cubs had also been watching and waiting in the shade.

Now the hunter was filled with envy for the cubs and wished that he too could have such a good hunter to provide for him.
