Section – A (Reading) 
A.1. Read the given passage: 
My cat died last week. It had been here since I was three years old, so I really miss her 
and still feel sad. 
My cat had been sick for a long time. My dad said it would be best for the vet to end 
her life because she was suffering so much. I knew my dad was right, I could see the 
pain in my cat?s eyes. The vet said that here was nothing more we could do to save 
her. 
At the vet?s we sat in the waiting room. I nursed my 
cat. She had her head on my arm. I think she knew 
what was going to happen because she seemed 
quiet and calm, sort of resigned. 
The receptionist was typing in the details of what 
the vet was going to do, on the computer keyboard. 
I could see my cat?s name on the monitor with 
„euth?, beside it. That probably stood for 
euthanasia. I suppose it was the right word but I 
wished it had said something kinder, like „put to 
sleep.? 
Soon it was our turn to go in . I won?t tell you 
everything except to say that the vet was very gentle 
with my cat and very nice to dad and me. My cat 
had an injection and I could see it didn?t hurt her. 
She died very quickly and peacefully. Dad and I 
both cried and the vet left us with my cat for a 
while. 
That night I couldn?t stop thinking about my cat and how she used to come and curl 
up on my bed. My mum came and sat with me until I fell asleep. 
1.1 Why did the writer?s dad think that the cat should be put to sleep?   (2)
