Comprehension Passage Test 02

Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions given below them: 

               Once a man went to the zoo and thought he would have some fun by teasing one of the elephants. He held up a bun to an elephant, but as soon as the elephant tried to reach it with his trunk, he pulled it away. The elephant took this calmly at first, but got angry as the trick was repeated. However he did not show his anger. Soon after this the elephant was allowed to come out of the cage to take his usual walk on the grounds of the zoo. Suddenly he saw the man who had teased him. He walked up to the man and took away his straw hat. He held it in his trunk for some time and then offered it to its owner. But as soon as the man tried to take it, the elephant quickly pulled it back again. After doing this for some time, the elephant put it into his mouth, swallowed it and walked away quietly. Thus the man was left bare-headed among the crowd who laughed loudly at the way the elephant had so cleverly punished him.
