One day Linda’s mother gave her some money to buy her favourite ice-cream. 41
The man looked hungry. Linda thought he was the poorest man in the world.
Linda looked at the ice-cream in the shop and the man outside for a while. 42
The man smiled and said, “Thank you, little girl. You are very kind. 43 In fact, I’m the richest man in the town and sometimes I wear old clothes to see what people will do.”
Then the rich man took Linda to a big shop and said to her, “ 44 You can choose anyone of them, even the most expensive one if you want.”
Linda asked, “ 45 ”
“Of course,” answered the man.
Linda took a big cup of ice-cream for herself, and a new coat for the man.
A. Choose a gift for you.
B. Then she decided to give the money to the poor man.
C. But I’m not a poor man.
D. Can I choose two?
E. When she arrived at the ice-cream shop, she saw a homeless man outside it.
