Mid Year Examination (#2): Section D

Read the passage below and answer questions.

  Thomas was excited. It was Saturday. His parents had promised to take him out shopping for the upcoming Chinese New Year. He could not wait to buy new clothes. The last time he went to Orchard Road was during Christmas when he bought a new set of stationery and some comic books from a bookshop. They even had some ice-cream after shopping.

  It was the weekend and there were many people shopping in preparation for the New Year. Thomas's parents told him to stay close to e them. As they were walking in New Point Mali, Thomas could not help but stare at all the beautiful toys on display in front of the toy shop.

  "Mum, can we please go to the toy shop?" Thomas begged.

  He tugged at his mother's skirt, trying to get her attention but she ignored him. Thinking that they would be close by, he dashed towards the toy shop to have a quick look.

  After admiring the toys, he decided to persuade his parents to buy a toy train for him. To his dismay, his parents were nowhere in sight. Beads of   15 perspiration trickled down his forehead as he continued to search for his parents. Realising that he had indeed lost his parents, Thomas burst into tears.

  Some shoppers stopped and tried to calm him down. As they were coaxing him, a security guard, who was doing his rounds stopped by.

  "Excuse me, is there something wrong?" the security guard asked.

  Realising that Thomas was lost the security guard immediately took him to the information counter. The receptionist at the counter made an announcement to the shoppers over the public address system.

  Ten minutes later, Thomas saw his parents rushing towards him. His face lit up as he ran towards them. He promised his parents never to wander off again.
