3 In addition to multiple -choice type questions, students will have to answer open-ended questions that require written responses. Students may be required to prove their answers using information from the story. They should also write in complete sentences. Students have been practicing these types of questions on their reading tests. Use the story to answer the following questions. You may go back to the story to help you answer the questions. What is the character s problem in the story? How is the problem solved? Use part of the story in your answer. Problem How is the problem solved? Tell the story in your own words.
