Question 1:

Here is a short story.

Once a lion lay fast asleep in the Ranathambore forest of Rajasthan. Some mice were playing hide and seek near him. One mouse got trapped under the lion’s paw. The lion woke up, laughed loudly and let the mouse go!

After some days the mouse heard the lion’s roar. He saw that the lion lay in great pain as he was tied with many ropes. The mouse used his sharp teeth and cut the rope. ‘‘You are a true friend,’’ said the lion.

From Aesop’s Fables

Indeed, a friend in need is a friend indeed. What does this mean? (i) We must be there for friends in trouble. (ii) Only a good friend will be with us when we are in trouble.
