B.1. Choose the correct alternative.
(i) ________________ pleases the children.
(a) Cottage cheese (b) Tomato (c) A rare dish
(ii) They will ask for more of ______________
(a) Ice-cream (b) cottage cheese (c) chocolate cake
Tomatoes, onions, peppers, fish,
Garlic nor cottage cheese;
Oh, it's a dish uncommon rare
That truly seems to please.
No red sauce may the ice cream have,
"It's bleeding," they will say;
And gravely hand it to their mum
To take it clean away.
But let us speak of chocolate cake,
It must be frosted o'er;
Then they'll devour three full slabs,
And calmly ask for more.
Oh, I do so always love to eat
With picky little pests,
Whose parents joy to make them
The most undesirable guests!
