Read the text and answer the questions 5, 6, 7 & 8.
One night three thieves stole a lot of money from a rich man’s house. They put the money in a bag and went into a forest. They felt very hungry. There was no food in the forest. So one of them went to a nearby village to buy food. The other two remained in the forest to take care of the bag of money.
The thief that went for food had an evil idea. He ate his food at a hotel. Then he bought food for his two mates in the forest. He mixed a strong poison with the food. He thought, ‘Those two will eat this poisoned food and die. Then I will get all the money for myself and become rich.’ Meanwhile, the two wicked men in the forest decided to kill their mate on his return with food. They thought that they would then divide all the money between the two of them.
All the three wicked men carried out their cruel plans. The thief who wanted all the money for himself came to the forest with the poisoned food. The two men in the forest fell upon him and killed him. Then they ate the poisoned food and died. As a result no body could enjoy the money.
