Continual Assessment 2 (#2): Section C

Choose the correct punctuation to complete the passage.

"What a joke (1) thought the hare, as he stood on the starting line of the five-kilometre race. He sneered at his opponent. The tortoise stood there, calm and unaffected.

"On your marks, get set, go (2)" shouted the beaver. At that, the hare took off like a rocket on his long, strong legs. The tortoise heaved himself up onto short, squat stumps and settled into a gentle amble.

After about hundred metres, the hare stopped and looked back through the dust. He could not even see the tortoise. Suddenly, he spotted a shady tree to the right of the path. "It looks so inviting. It can't hurt to have a little nap here," he thought (3) That slow old fool doesn't have a chance against me."
