Narrative Text Soal dan Jawaban: Ant and Dove
The following text is for question 1 to 4.

Ant and Dove
An ant went to the river to get a drink. The water rushed so fast that he was washed off from the bank into the river.

“I shall drown” he cried. “Help! Help! Help!”, but his voice was so tiny that it couldn’t be heard.

A dove was sitting on the tree hanging over the water. She saw the ant struggling and quickly nipped off a leaf and let it fall into the water. The ant climbed upon it and floated down the river until the leaf was washed upon the bank of the river.

The ant called out in its tiny voice. ‘Thank you, kind dove, you have saved my life”, but of course the dove couldn’t hear him.

Several days after ward, the dove was again sitting on the tree, a hunter crept carefully up to the tree. His gun was pointed at the dove and he was about to shoot, when he was bitten in the leg by an ant.

He cried out with pain and dropped his gun. This frightened the dove, and she flew away. “thank you, kind ant” cooed the dove. The ant heard it and happy that he could help her.
