Mr. Robinson was driving to Oxford one cloudy day when he saw a hitch-hiker holding a sign above his head which said CAMBRIDGE. Mr. Robinson thought it unwise to take hitch-hiker, because he had read frightening stories of what some of them did to drivers, but he was a kind man, so he stopped and said, ‘You’re going to get wet. You’re on the wrong road for Cambridge. This road goes to Oxford.’

‘Yes, I know,’ answered the hitch-hiker gaily, as he got into Mr. Robinson’s car. ‘That’s where I want to go. I only started to wait here a minute ago, and I knew someone would be likely to stop to tell me I was on the wrong road. If I’d held up a sign with OXFORD on it, I might have had to wait for an hour for someone to stop!’

Answer the questions.

1. Why did Mr. Robinson stop to talk to the hutch-hiker? 2. Did he usually help hitch-hikers? 3. Why didn’t he usually stop for them? 4. Why did he think the hitch-hiker was going to get wet? 5. Why had the hitch-hiker held the wrong sign above the head?
