Aufgabe 1


Read the text, find the information in the text and answer the questions.

Every morning at breakfast Jenny asked, “Dad, can I have a pet?” And every morning Mr Thomson, Jenny’s father, said, “No, I’m sorry, you can’t. The flat is too small for a pet.” “But all my friends have got pets,” Jenny continued. “And where do they live? Do they live in a flat?” “No, they all live in houses.” “And do the houses have gardens?” “Yes, they do.” “We live in a little flat with no garden so you can’t have a pet,” said Jenny’s father. “But if I can have a little dog, then I will take it for a walk in the park every day,” replied Jenny. “No, Jenny, I’m sorry, you can’t have a dog. You can’t leave a dog alone all day.”
Jenny’s father found it very difficult to say “No” to Jenny. “What about a rat?” she asked. “The flat is big enough for a rat.” She knew the answer. “No rats in this flat!” “And a cat?” Again she knew the answer. Mr Thomson was already late for work so he said, “No cats. You know that I am allergic to cats. If you really want a pet, then it must be one with feathers. Now I must go to work. I’m late.”
When Mr Thomson got home that evening Jenny was not at home. But after fifteen minutes she came home. “Hi, Dad, I’m home. I was in the park with Hector. Come and say ‘Hello’ to Hector, my new pet.”
Mr Thomson went into the kitchen. Jenny was in the kitchen with Hector, her new pet, a duck. He didn’t know what to say.
