Exercise 7: Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Years ago, there lived a very wealthy widower and his devoted young son. They
shared a passion for art collecting and travelled around the world in search of the finest
art treasures to add to their priceless collection at home.

One winter, war came. The young man had to leave home to serve his country. He 5
never returned. It was later confirmed that he had died while carrying a wounded soldier 10
to a medic. The old man spent Christmas Eve heartbroken and lonely. In the early hours
of Christmas morning, a knock on the door awoke the old widower. A soldier with a large
package in his hand greeted him. “I was a friend of your son. I was the one he was
rescuing when he died. May I come in? I have something to show you,” the visitor
explained.

As they talked, the old man realized that his son had rescued dozens of wounded 15
soldiers before he was killed by a bullet. The grieving father’s heart swelled with pride. As
the soldier took his leave, he said, “I’m an artist, and I want to give you this.” The old man
unwrapped the package. It revealed a portrait of his son. Although it could not be
considered the work of a genius, the painting featured the young man in striking detail.
He hung it on the wall and it became his most prized possession. It was more valuable to
him than any other item in his art collection. It was the greatest gift the old man had ever
received.

The old man fell ill in the following spring and passed away. He left a will dictating 20
that his art collection be sold at an auction on Christmas Day. The day he had received
his greatest gift. The art world waited in great anticipation for this.

The day arrived and art collectors from around the world gathered to bid for some 25
of the most sought-after works of art. The auctioneer began, not with a painting that was
part of the most sought-after list, but with that of the man’s son. The auctioneer asked for
an opening bid. There was silence. “Who will open the bid with $100?” the auctioneer
called out. The silence continued. Nobody wanted the painting. Suddenly, from the back
of the room, a voice was heard, “Who cares about the painting?” It’s just a picture of his
son. Let’s move on to the masterpieces.” The audience echoed in agreement.

“No, we have to sell this one first,” replied the auctioneer. “Now, who will take this 30
painting?” Finally, a friend of the old man spoke. “Can I have it for ten dollars? That’s all I
have. I know the boy and I’d like to have it.” The auctioneer called out for higher bids but
there was no response. “Going once, going twice. Gone!” The hammer came down and
spontaneous cheers filled the room.

Unbelievably, the auctioneer announced that the auction was over. The audience 35
was stunned. “What do you mean it’s over? We didn’t come here for a picture of a son.
We’re here for the masterpieces that are worth millions of dollars. We demand an
explanation!”

The auctioneer replied, “It’s very simple. According to the will of the father,
whoever takes the portrait of the son gets it all.”
