Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 
"Today is spring cleaning day !" mother announced cheerily. Sharon and her sister groaned. This could only mean one thing -- a lot of hard work. However, they put on a brave smile and got ready to work. They knew that their mother needed their help. She was already working two jobs to support them and had very little spar time. So, they quickly got on with the job.

Sharon opted to clean the study while her sister was asked to clean their room. While dusting and rearranging the book and stuff in the study, Sharon came across a picture of her late father. It was a picture of them having a wonderful day at the beach. Sharon felt tears coming to her eyes. She really missed her father. When her mother came in, Sharon quickly wiped her tears and busied herself with the shelves. She did not want to upset her mother. She knew her mother missed him just as much as her.

Sharon suddenly went to her mother and hugged her tight. "What's wrong, Sharon ?" asked her mother.

"Nothing, I just want to tell you that I love you very much. Don't work too hard, Mum," said Sharon. Her mother just smiled at her. After the cleaning was over, they had a well-deserved treat at McDonalds.
