Read the text and answer the questions 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 : (Competency based)
On a hot summer day a crow felt very thirsty. It was flying to and fro looking for water. But it did not find water anywhere. At last it found a pitcher of water at some distance. The pitcher had some water but it was beyond the reach of the crow. It tried its best to drink water but its bill could not reach into it. It became very sad and hopeless.
Suddenly the crow saw some small pieces of stones near the jar. A good idea came into its head.
It then picked up the stones and dropped them into the jar one by one. As a result, the water came up to the brim. Then the crow drank water from it to its heart’s content and flew away with a joyful mind.
In fact where there is a will there is a way. So we should not be hopeless. Rather we should try every possible way to meet our utmost need.
