Read the story below and answer the questions that follow.A milkmaid had been out to milk the cows and was returning from the field with a shiny milk pail balanced nicely on her head. As she walked along, her pretty head was busy with plans for the days to come.This good, rich milk, she mused, will give me plenty of cream to churn. I will take the butter which I made to the market, and with the money I get for it, I will buy a lot of eggs for hatching. How nice it will be when they are all hatched and the yard is full of cute, little chicks. Then when the right time comes I will sell them, and with the money, I will buy a lovely new dress to wear to the fair. All the young men will be attracted to me. They will come and try to date me.As she thought of how she would settle that matter, she tossed her head scornfully, and down fell the pail of milk.
