  • Question 1
    120 seconds

    Carrie loved her phone and her tablet. She was always looking at one or the other. Her parents would try to talk to her about her life, but she would just ignore them or give them brief answers until they left her alone. When she was at school, she'd sneak peeks at her phone under her desk whenever she could get away with it. When she was at parties, she spent more time interacting with the devices in front of her than with the people around her. Even at concerts and sporting events, Carrie seldom removed her eyes from these tiny screens. One day Carrie was walking home from a friend's house and watching a funny video of people slipping on ice. She began crossing the street just after the light changed. She was so into the video that she did not notice the oncoming traffic. She walked directly into the traffic while laughing at the falling people on her tiny screen and was hit by a bus. Carrie sustained mild injuries, but both of her devices were destroyed. As far as she was concerned, her life was over.

    Tammy and Sammy were both students in Mr. Morton’s reading class. Mr. Morton wasn’t too strict about

    deadlines, and Sammy took advantage of that. He did all of his homework in his other classes but never bothered

    to complete Mr. Morton’s reading assignments, figuring that he could complete them later. Tammy, on the other

    hand, completed each assignment Mr. Morton assigned the night that he assigned it. She had to stay up a little

    later, but she didn’t want to get a penalty for turning in her reading work late. Tammy knew reading was a core

    subject and that she had to keep “C” average for the entire year or she would have to go to summer school. When

    the end of the quarter came, Tammy and Sammy had both planned on going to the Enchanted Castle amusement

    park, but Mr. Morton called Sammy’s mother, and she grounded Sammy until he turned in all of his work. That

    weekend was horrible for Sammy. He stayed up until 2:00 AM each night and still couldn’t complete all of the

    assignments. The whole while, Tammy had a great time eating pizza at Enchanted Castle, watching movies late

    at night, and enjoying her weekend free of stress and pressure. At the end of the quarter, Sammy was lucky to

    squeak by with a “C” minus in reading while Tammy earned an “A.” Sammy still hasn’t learned his lesson and

Jack asked, “What will you give me in return for my cow?” The man answered, “I will give you five magic beans!” Jack took the magic beans and gave the man the cow. But when he reached home, Jack’s mother was very angry. She said, “You fool! He took away your cow and gave you some beans!” She threw the beans out of the window. Jack was very sad and went to sleep without dinner.

    The next day, when Jack woke up in the morning and looked out of the window, he saw that a huge beanstalk had grown from his magic beans! He climbed up the beanstalk and reached a kingdom in the sky. There lived a giant and his wife. Jack went inside the house and found the giant’s wife in the kitchen. Jack said, “Could you please give me something to eat? I am so hungry!” The kind wife gave him bread and some milk.

The giant cried, “Fee-fifo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” The wife said, “There is no boy in here!” So, the giant ate his food and then went to his room. He took out his sacks of gold coins, counted them and kept them aside. Then he went to sleep. In the night, Jack crept out of his hiding place, took one sack of gold coins and climbed down the beanstalk. At home, he gave the coins to his mother.

Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” The wife said, “There is no boy in here!” The giant ate his food and went to his room. There, he took out a hen. He shouted, “Lay!” and the hen laid a golden egg. When the giant fell asleep, Jack took the hen and climbed down the beanstalk. Jack’s mother was very happy with him.

Once again, the giant’s wife gave him bread and milk. But while Jack was eating, the giant came home. “Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Be he alive, or be he dead, I’ll grind his bones to make my bread!” cried the giant. “Don’t be silly! There is no boy in here!” said his wife.

    The giant had a magical harp that could play beautiful songs. While the giant slept, Jack took the harp and was about to leave. Suddenly, the magic harp cried, “Help master! A boy is stealing me!” The giant woke up and saw Jack with the harp. Furious, he ran after Jack. But Jack was too fast for him. He ran down the beanstalk and reached home.
