COMPREHENSION OF A PASSAGE - PASSAGE NO. 1

2. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end. 
     One day a wolf felt very hungry. He wandered here and there in search of food but he could not find anything to eat. At last he saw a flock of sheep grazing in a pasture. He wanted to eat one but they were guarded by a hound. The shepherd's son was also tending the flock vigilantly. The wolf found himself helpless. At last he hit upon a plan. He hid in the skin of a sheep and safely went into the flock. The hound could not find out the wolf in disguise. He killed a sheep and ate in without being caught. In this way he ate up many sheep and their number began to fall every day. The shepherd was greatly worried but could not find out the thief.
