Read the following and then answer the questions :
One day, I was standing outside an underground station in London waiting for a
friend, when I saw two men . One was sitting on the pavement. His clothes were
old and dirty and had a hat in front of him. As people passed by , he said, “
Can you give me some change, please ? “ A few people tossed some coins into the
hat but mist people ignored him .
The other man was wearing
a suit and holding a plastic petrol can . He stopped people and told them his
car had run out of petrol and he had forgotten his wallet. He asked them to
lend him some money for petrol. Most people happily gave him money. Some gave
him coins, but most gave him notes. I watched him for ten minutes . In that
time he collected a lot of money. He put it in his pocket, but he did no
go to the petrol station. It became clear to me that both men were beggars. The
one in the dirty clothes needed money more than one in the suit. But the one in
the suit was much more successful . Isn’t that strange ?
