In A.2 ‘Monday Morning Blues’ (Unit-Growing Up) of My English Reader, you have read about Tom Sawyer. He always keeps on making excuses so that he does not have to go to school. The day his tooth was taken out, he sat down at night to write his diary.
Because Tom was very tired, he slept, leaving his diary page open. When Aunt Polly came in the morning to wake him up, she looked at the diary page. She read it and decided to write a note of advice to Tom in his diary. Help her complete the note by filling in the blanks. Use the Aid Box given below, you may use some words more than once.
I’ve just read what you have written. You can take rest today but you must have told me the truth. You should have come up to me and asked me. I would have said ‘yes’. But I believe that you will never stop making excuses. You should try and mend your ways, then only could you be able to win the love and respect of others.
All the underlined words that you have read in Tom’s diary and all the words that you have filled in are used to express ‘possibilities’, ‘permissions’, ‘requests’. Words like ‘may’, ‘can’, ‘might’, ‘could’ given in the Aid Box above are Modals.
