Continual Assessment 2 (#2): Section H

Read the passage carefully and answer questions 1 to 5.

Answer the following questions in complete sentence.


 Devi was eating her strawberry cupcake when her friend, Weili, exclaimed, "It's your turn to race! What is that on your face?"


 "It's cream from my strawberry cupcake," Devi replied. She wiped her face on her sleeve and ran to the starting line.


 The other five racers grinned at her. She smiled back. She thought to herself, "There must still be cream on my face!"


 As the teacher blew the whistle, all the six runners started to run as fast as they could. Devi was not sure what it was but her first few steps put her in front of the others and she won the race.


 Weili was surprised and asked Devi what made her run faster than usual. Devi laughed and said that it could be the power of the cupcakes. After that, she bought two more cupcakes and gave one to Weili. She felt that the cupcakes brought her good luck so she ate another one before the next race.


 When the second race started, Devi could not run as fast as she did the first time as she was too full. In the end, she came in last in the race.


 Weili and Devi no longer believed in the power of the cupcakes.
