Read the story about Angela and Christine. Then answer the questions.
Angela and Christine are best friends. They do things together every day. One day, Angela came to school with a new girl. “Who is that girl, Angela?" Christine asked. “This is my cousin Sonia. Her family moved to our town. She's going to study with us,” Angela replied. “I see. Hi, I'm Christine. Welcome to our school,” Christine said. “Do you want to get some ice cream after school?” Christine asked. “Sorry, but I have something to do with Sonia today,” answered Angela. “Oh, OK," said Christine. “Then maybe next time.” Christine acted as if she were OK, but she wasn't.
After school, she felt upset about what had happened. “Angela has changed. We used to do things together, but since she has her cousin, she doesn't need me anymore,” Christine thought.
“Happy birthday, Christine!” said Angela to Christine as she gave her a jewelry box the next day. “I couldn't pick out your birthday present with you, so I brought Sonia and we found this together. Do you like it?” Angela asked. “I thought you didn't want to be friends with me anymore,” said Christine, feeling embarrassed. “What? That's not true. You are my best friend. I love hanging out with you. Now let's go get some ice cream,” Angela said.

Ted receives 2 dollars every week from his parents. He usually kept all his money in his desk drawer. One day, he opened the drawer and saw a bunch of one-dollar bills that he had been keeping there. He asked his mom, "Mom, what should I do with my allowance? I want to keep it safe." His mom answered, "Why don't you put it all in the bank?" "The bank?" asked Ted. "Yes," his mom replied. "It is safe and you also get interest." "What's interest?" Ted asked. "It is extra money you get for keeping your money at a bank." "That's good," Ted said. "Can you come to the bank with me and help me open an account?" Ted asked.
Ted and his mom found a bank near their home. "Hi, I would like to open a savings account, please," said Ted. "May I see your ID, please?" the teller asked. Then she gave some papers to Ted to read and sign. He also chose his PIN. "Are you going to make a deposit today?" the teller asked. "Yes, I want to save one hundred dollars in my account," Ted answered. The teller counted the money, and printed the record out on Ted's new bankbook. "Here is your bankbook," she said. "Just bring your bankbook if you want to deposit or withdraw money next time," the teller added. "Thank you very much," Ted replied.
"Wow, now you have your own bank account. I am very proud of you," said Ted's mom. Ted also felt great because he had done something special.

"I have to write down five things I do in my house, but I can't think of any," Judy replied. Judy's mom looked surprised and asked, "What do you mean? We do many things in the house." "We do?" Judy asked. "Sure. First, what are you doing now?" Judy's mom asked. "I'm trying to do my homework in the living room," Judy replied. 'Well, that's one thing. And what am I doing now?" Judy's mom asked again. "You are preparing dinner." "That's correct. Now, think about what do you do in each room," said her mom. Judy thought carefully for a minute. 'Well, I sleep in my bedroom, eat in the kitchen, watch TV in the living room, and take a shower in the bathroom," Judy answered. "I think you have just finished your homework," Judy's mom said with a smile. "Wow, you are great. I just need to write these down in my notebook. Thanks, Mom," Judy said. "You're welcome," Judy's mom replied.
"Mom, I'm done with my homework now. Can I have a cookie?" Judy asked. "No, we are going to have dinner in fifteen minutes. Go wash your hands," answered her mom.
