Below is a passage from Alices Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Read


the story and answer the questions.
In her journey through Wonderland, Alice has become very small. She knows she
needs to become her normal size again, but shes not sure how to do that.
FROM Alices Adventures in Wonderland
It sounded an excellent plan, no doubt, and very neatly and simply arranged; the only
difficulty was, that she had not the smallest idea how to set about it; and while she was
peering about anxiously among the trees, a little sharp bark just over her head made her look
up in a great hurry.
An enormous puppy was looking down at her with large round eyes, and feebly stretching out
one paw, trying to touch her. Poor little thing! said Alice, in a coaxing tone, and she tried
hard to whistle to it; but she was terribly frightened all the time at the thought that it might be
hungry, in which case it would be very likely to eat her up in spite of all her coaxing.
Hardly knowing what she did, she picked up a little bit of stick, and held it out to the puppy;
whereupon the puppy jumped into the air off all its feet at once, with a yelp of delight, and
rushed at the stick, and made believe to worry it; then Alice dodged behind a great thistle, to
keep herself from being run over; and the moment she appeared on the other side, the puppy
made another rush at the stick, and tumbled head over heels in its hurry to get hold of it; then
Alice, thinking it was very like having a game of play with a carthorse, and expecting every
moment to be trampled under its feet, ran round the thistle again; then the puppy began a
series of short charges at the stick, running a very little way forwards each time and a long
way back, and barking hoarsely all the while, till at last it sat down a good way off, panting,
with its tongue hanging out of its mouth, and its great eyes half shut.
This seemed to Alice a good opportunity for making her escape; so she set off at once, and
ran till she was quite tired and out of breath, and till the puppys bark sounded quite faint in
the distance.

Informal Letter
Dear John Collins,
Hi there! I am fine and hope that this letter will find you in good health. Anyway, the purpose
of this letter is to invite you to watch your favorite movie next part, Transformer: The Age of
Extinction, next week with me. Please, allow me to elaborate more.
Firstly, I think that this movie will be very interesting, because all the other parts of it had a
huge hit in the theaters in the past. Moreover, it is a 3-dimensional picture, and has lots of
computer graphics effects in the actions. Additionally, a person, whom I met accidentally on
the morning walk yesterday, told me that the story of this movie is superb. Therefore, we
should see this picture.
Secondly, I have booked the tow tickets of the morning show of this movie in the Surya
Cinema, which is 3 kilometers away from my residence. Furthermore, it is a beautiful theater
and he has a high definition screen. For travelling to this picture hall, fortunately, my fathers
motor bike is free that day. So, I have completed all the arrangements to see this film.
Finally, I hope that you will accept my proposal, and we will meet soon.
With lots of love,
James Smith.
FORMAL LETTER
I am a third grade girl at Heritage School. I love your extraordinary ice cream store. I am
writing to ask if you would consider making candy cane brownies.
I would love it if you made candy cane brownies and I would definitely come and spread the
word.
One reason why you should make candy cane brownies is all my classmates would probably
come to your store and you would make a lot of money. Also my best friend loves your store
and can spend a lot of money there. I think you are the best store ever!
I hope you consider my idea of making candy cane brownies.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely
