    A: When Mother hyena was away, Anansis, the spider, went to her den and informed her cubs that he was their uncle, For-you-all. "Wake me up when your mother brings food," he said and curling up in a corner, went to sleep.
    P: The hyena came in just then. "Which of you was the rascal I was chasing!" she demanded. The spider pointed to the dog. "He has been running," he said. "See how he's panting with his tongue hanging out."
    Q: In the evening when Mother hyena came home the cubs started crying for food. "Still hungry after all the meat I gave you?" she asked, surprised. "Uncle ate it all!" they wailed. The spider, realizing that it was time to run, darted out of the cave and sprinted away.
    R: "That's Uncle For-you-all!" shouted the cubs. "Is he!" said their mother, grimly, and bounded after the spider. Anansis rushed into Dog's house and sat beside him. "I've just finished eating," said the dog. "I've nothing to offer you." "That's all right," said the spider, "I've already eaten. That's why I'm here."
    S: Presently Mother hyena came with meat which she gave to her cubs, saying: "This is for you all." The cubs woke up the spider and gave him the meat which he devoured. Mother hyena brought meat twice more, on each occasion saying, "This is for you all," while handing over the food to her cubs. Each time, the cubs dutifully woke up Anansis and gave him the meat.

    Arrange P, Q, R and S between A and B in order to make a sensible story:
    A: In the days when whites ruled South Africa and apartheid was the law of the land, two middle-aged blacks met in a 'whites only' section of Johannesburg. One of them had a permit to work in the area, the other did not, which meant he could be put behind bars for trespassing into an exclusive zone.
    P: Suddenly they saw a policeman coming towards them/and froze. "Run!" whispered the man with the permit to his friend. "I'll follow." They started running and the policeman shouting "Stop, stop," began chasing them. Finally he caught the second man.
    Q:  The policeman became red with anger. "You think you're very smart, don't you?" he snarled. "But tell me, if you were only running for your health why didn't you stop when you saw me running after you? And don't tell me you didn't see me chasing you... I know you did!"
    R: "When you had a permit why did you run!" he bawled. "Doctor's orders," said the man. "He has asked me to run a mile every evening."; "Oh, yes?" sneered the policeman. "Then why was your friend running?" "His doctor too has ordered him to run," said the man.
    S: "Did you think you could outrun me!" he snarled. "Show me your permit!" The man, playing for time, began fumbling in his pocket and finally produced his permit. The policeman was taken aback. He realized that he had been tricked. The man without the permit was now too far away to be caught.
    B: "Of course I knew you were running after me," said the man. "Then why didn't you stop?" asked the policeman, triumphantly. "It was stupid of me," said the man, "but I thought you too had been ordered to run by your doctor."

    Arrange P, Q, R and S between A and B in order to make a sensible story:
    A: Many tales are told about Neptune the Roman god of the sea. Neptune was said to be one of the most generous of the gods.
    P: One day a woman who lived close to the sea went down to the beach and began singing songs in his praise. Finally the god came to the surface and asked her what she wanted.
    Q: Yet the woman was not satisfied. There was a large rock at her feet. She felt that if she removed the rock there would be place for one more cow there. So she picked it up and summoning all her strength heaved it into the sea.
    R: The woman went on singing and every time she stopped for breath there would be another cow on the beach. The beach was small and so as the number of cows started growing it started getting crowded. Finally there was just enough room for her to stand.
    S: "I want a cow," said the woman. The next moment there was a cow standing beside her. The woman was thrilled. She began singing another song. At the end of it there was another cow beside her.
    B: Unfortunately for her, Neptune himself was coming to the surface at that moment to bestow his blessings on his devotee. The rock hit him on the head. The god was so angry he dived back into the waters taking with him all the cows he had given the woman.

    Arrange P, Q, R and S between A and B in order to make a sensible story:
    A: The Sun while going on his daily rounds saw a princess and fell in love with her. Whenever he could slip away from the heavens he would take human form and go down to the princess to spend some time with her. The princess too became quite fond of him and would wait for him to come.
    P: Believing that it was the Sun's way of telling her that he did not care for her, she flung the bag away, rushed to her palace, and never came out again. When the Sun learnt of what had happened he was furious. So great was his anger that when he turned his scorching gaze on the crow, its feathers were burned black. Its feathers have been black ever since.
    Q: One day the Sun decided to send her a blood-red ruby as a token of his love for her. He put the gem in a silken bag, and calling a crow that was flying past, asked the bird to deliver the gem to his beloved. Crows had milky white feathers in those days and it was considered auspicious if a crow came anywhere near one. So the Sun was pleased that he had found a crow to deliver the gem.
    R: When he opened the bag and saw its contents he almost swooned in joy. Quickly pocketing the ruby, he filled the bag with dry cow dung that was lying there, and then deftly returned the bag to the branch. It was all done so quickly that the crow missed all the action. After having its fill, it flew up to the tree, and picking up the bag took it to the person it was intended for. The princess was in the garden. When the crow gave her the bag, she took it eagerly, knowing that it was from the Sun. But when she saw its contents she reeled back in shock and anger.
    S: As the crow sped through the sky with the silken bag, the aroma of food reached its nostrils. Looking down it saw that a wedding feast was in progress, and immediately it was distracted from its mission. Food was one thing it could never resist! Alighting on a tree nearby, it hung the bag on a twig and went off to find some food. While the crow was feasting, a merchant passing by saw the bag on the tree, and knocked it down with a pole.
    B: The story goes on to tell us that the ruby did not stay with the man who stole it. It fell out of his pocket and rolled into a deep pit. Men have been trying to dig it out ever since. Many precious stones have been found in the process, making Burma (now Myanmar) one of the richest sources of rubies and sapphires, but the ruby that the Sun sent to the princess is yet to be found.

    Arrange P, Q, R and S between A and B in order to make a sensible story:
    A: Duan Guangqinj was a Chinese magistrate who lived about a hundred years ago. He was famous for the fairness of his judgements. One day while the magistrate was walking through a market he saw a crowd outside a poultry shop.
    P: Fear had made the peasant's speech incoherent. Nobody could understand what he was saying. "The price put on the chicken is hundred coins," said the magistrate, to the peasant. "I advise you to pay." There was a gasp from the crowd. Everybody had expected the magistrate to rule in the peasant's favour. The owner of the chicken was overjoyed.
    Q: His argument was that the chicken would have grown into a plump bird in another two years and then it would have fetched him the amount he was asking for. Somebody recognized the magistrate, and everybody made way for him. "Judge our case, My Lord!" said the owner of the chicken, letting go of the peasant and bowing obsequiously to the magistrate. "This man, through his carelessness has caused the death of a chicken that would have fetched me a hundred coins in another two years!"
    R: "They said you were fair in your judgements, My Lord," he said, rubbing his hands in glee, "now I can say there is no one fairer than you!" "The Law is always fair," smiled the magistrate. "Tell me, how much grain does a chicken eat in a year?" "About half a sack," said the poultry shop owner.
    S: On enquiring what the matter was he learnt that a peasant had accidentally dropped a heavy sack on a chicken, crushing it to death. The chicken was small, worth only about five coins, but the owner of the shop had caught the peasant by his throat and was demanding a hundred.
    B: "So in two years the chicken who died would have eaten a whole sack of grain," said Duan Guangqinj. "Please give the sack of grain you've saved to this man." The chicken owner turned pale. A sack of grain would cost more than hundred coins. Cowed by the jeers of the crowd, he declared he would not take any money from the peasant, and retreated into the safety of his shop.

    Arrange P, Q, R and S in order to make a sensible story:
    A: The Dough family was an unusual one. The head of the family, Dough, as his name suggested, was a ball of dough. His wife was a slab of butter. They had two children. Ant and Cotton. One morning. Mother Butter asked her son. Ant to go and get some resin from the mepche tree, as resin  made good fuel.
    P: When he didn't return, Father Dough decided to go in search of him. "Don't go too near the edge of the road," said his wife. "You could easily slip and roll down the side." "What does she know?" thought Dough as he rolled out of the house. "If I follow her advice and walk down the middle of the road, I could get crushed by the carts going by. I'm safer at the edge."
    Q: He zoomed to the edge of the road, lost his balance and went rolling down the side of the steep hill. When her husband did not return, Mrs. Dough asked her daughter, Cotton, to go out and look for him. "Take care not to walk in open spaces, my child," warned Mother Dough as Cotton got ready to leave. "You could get blown away by the wind."
    R: "Stay away from fresh resin," she cautioned. "You could get stuck. Get a small dried piece." "She thinks I'm still a baby," thought Ant as he climbed jauntily up the tree. "She doesn't know how strong I've become." He saw a big blob of resin emerging from a crack and rushed forward to grab it. And of course he got stuck.
    S: Cotton thought her mother was being too fussy and went dancing down the street. Then disregarding her mother's advice she decided to take a short cut across a meadow. She didn't even get halfway. A gust of wind picked her up and carried her away into the mountains.
    B: Mother Butter waited for her family to return. The day got hotter and hotter and Mother Butter began to melt and became smaller and smaller till finally there was nothing left of her except a puddle of liquid.
