- Read the following passage, then choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d: Sometimes, people may be punished for things they didn't do. Do you think that we should stop doing good things in case we feel danger or we should continue doing it? On the night of April 14, 1865 President Abraham Lincoln was attending the theater in Washington. In the middle of the performance, an actor named John Wilkes Booth, seeking to avenge the defeat of the South, slipped into the presidential box and shot the president. Booth escaped the theater, but broke his leg when he leaped from the president's box seat to the stage. Five hours later, Booth and his companion arrived at the home of a doctor called Samuel Mudd. He knew nothing about the assassination of the president. He set the leg and persuaded the two travelers to stay in his house for the rest of the night. The next morning, Booth and his friend, using false names, paid the bill and departed, but Dr. Mudd was arrested, taken to Washington, and tried on the charge that he was a friend of Booth's and therefore helped plan the assassination. He insisted that he knew nothing of the plot, but the court sentenced the unfortunate doctor to life imprisonment. He was imprisoned at Fort Jefferson. The warm, humid climate at the fort was a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Again and again, these pests spread yellow fever germs to prisoners and guards alike. Dr. Mudd volunteered his services, because he was the only doctor on the island. He had to fight the disease, even after he was infected himself. In spite of the fact that the guards and other inmates called him "that Lincoln murderer," and treated him very badly, he worked hard to fight the disease. Meanwhile, his wife was working heroically back in Washington for her husband's cause. After a four-year struggle, she secured a pardon for him for a crime he never committed. - Choose the correct answer from a , b, c or d: 1. The best title for this passage is …..
