Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 

The miser looked around cautiously. He checked his garden, the bushes and up the tree. Satisfied, he went to his favorite spot and started digging. Soon, a chest came into view. When he opened it, the glitter from the contents almost blinded him. He looked happily at the contents. Suddenly he heard a noise. He quickly shoved the chest back into the hole and covered it up. He looked around to see whether there was anyone but to his relief, there was no one. He went into his house. Later that night, a stranger came knocking at his door. The stranger asked for some money and food as he was poor and had a family to feed. The miser quickly said that he himself was poor and had nothing to give. The stranger gave him a knowing look and said, "Those who can help but don't will regret it later." And the stranger left. The next day, the miser went to his favorite spot and started digging. When he opened the chest, he got a shock. it was empty. Instead there was a note inside it. It simply said "Thank you."
