Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 

Sloth was well known throughout the forest as the laziest animal. He would eat and sleep all day, curled up comfortably on the tree branches. All the other animals would be busy singing and playing but not Sloth. They told him, "You are a good for nothing." But Sloth just ignored them and carried on lazing around.

One day, a bird built her nest near Sloth's branch. She laid her eggs and watched over them until they hatched. Then, she had to fly off and look for food. She asked Sloth to keep an eye on he babies. Sloth was too lazy to even answer.

"You are good for nothing," said the bird angrily and flew off. Soon, a snake slithered up the tree looking for baby birds to eat. It did not notice Sloth on the branch. It was just about to strike the baby birds when it felt a sharp pain on its side !

Sloth had clawed him ! The snake fell to the ground and slithered away. The mother bird saw what Sloth did. She felt so ashamed of herself. "Sorry," she said to Sloth. Sloth simply went back to sleep.
