Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 

Tyler attended a friend's birthday party today. It was an army-themed party. The moment he arrived, he had to give a salute at the door entrance. He was asked to report his name and purpose of visit.

"What is your name, soldier ?"

"Tyler, sir !"

"And why are you here ?"

"To attend Matthew's birthday party, sir !" Once the 'commander' was satisfied with Tyler's answer, he was allowed to enter.

The first activity was a camouflage competition. There were tubes of camouflage face paint available. Everyone had to apply it on the face like a real soldier. Tyler had never done anything like this before so it took him a rather long time to get the hang of it. He realized that putting on different shades of green and black was much more effective. Once everyone was ready, their camouflage had to be tested. A camouflage netting was placed in front of each person and the person who was the most well-hidden behind the netting was the winner. Surprisingly, Tyler won the second prize.

Once the competition was over, there was a short break for lunch. After that, the children were provided with toy guns and army print sunglasses. They formed two teams and played army war games. The two groups had a 'war' and fought to see who would emerge victorious. It was chaotic as the children were running everywhere and shooting and shouting It sounded like a real war.

The last thing before the party ended was the cake cutting. Matthew had a mango sponge cake. The children sang the birthday song and Matthew blew out the birthday candles. That day, Tyler had tremendous fun. He really enjoyed the camouflage competition. He had fun applying the gooey cream on his face and looking like a real soldier.
