Third Level “C” Reading Comprehension Quiz
Name: ……………………………………………………………………..Date: ……………….. Score: …………….. Mark: ………………………. Objective: Read comprehensively and answer questions
Read the text and answer the following questions.

Dear readers,
I’m one of those guys who have “the quite normal” problem: I’m in love with a girl, but I don’t know what to do. I have already had a crush on some girls, never with any success, but this is something different. My problem is actually that I’m too cowardly to tell her anything. I know that she likes me and we’re very, very good friends. We’ve known each other for about three years, and our friendship has constantly become better. We often get into quarrels, but we always make up. Another problem is that we often talk about problems with each other, and so I know she is having problems with her boyfriend (who I think is no good for her). We meet almost every day. We always have very much fun together, but is it really so difficult to love someone who has been a good chum to you until now? Male, 15
