Part B. Reading Comprehension – Read this passage and answer the questions which follow based on the information in it. Put the letter of the correct answer in the blank space.

In oppidō Tūsculō magnum forum est. In forō est templum antīquum. Iūlius in forō est cum quattuor servīs, neque Mēdus in iīs est. Ubi est Mēdus? Mēdus quoque in oppidō Tusculō est, neque is in forō est cum dominō, sed sine dominō in templō. Mēdus sōlus est in magnō templō vacuō. Quid agit servis Iūliī in templō? Nummōs numerat.

Mēdus: "quot nummī sunt in sacculō meō. Ūnus, duō, trēs, quattuor, quīnque, sex, septem, octō, novem, decem. . . . nōnāgintā. Ecce nōnāgintā nummī. magna pecūnia mea est.!"

". . . mea est!" respondet templum vacuum.

Mēdus: "Quid? Num dominus adest?"

". . . adest" respondet templum vacuum.

Sed sōlus est servus in templō. Nūllus dominus verba eius audit. Nōn in templō, sed in forō est Iūlius. Quid agit Iūlius in forō Tūsculānō. Dominus servum suum quaerit.

Iūlius imperat: "Quaere Mēdum, Dāve!"

Dāvus: "Ubi?"

Iūlius: "Quaere eum in templō!"

Dāvus ab Iūliō discēdit. Iam Dāvus in templō est et Mēdum quaerit. Dāvus Mēdum in templō videt.

Dāvus: "Ō Mēde. . .!"

Mēdus: "St, tacē, Dāve! Tacē et discēde!"

Dāvus: "Dominus in oppidō est et tē quaerit. Īrātus est dominus."

Mēdus: "Mēne quaerit dominus? Cūr mē quaerit?"

Dāvus: "Quia nummī eius in sacculō tuō sunt! Dominus pecūniam suam quaerit."

Mēdus: "Iūlius meus dominus iam nōn est. Neque nummī eius in sacculō meō sunt."

Dāvus: "Ō improbe serve!"

Mēdus: "Age, discēde, Dāve – et tacē! Improbus est servus quī servum accūsat."

Dāvus tacet, neque ab eō discēdit. Mēdus ex sacculō suō sūmit duōs nummōs.

Mēdus: "Ecce nummī tuī, probe serve!"

Dāvus: "Nōn meī sunt nummī, neque tuī, sed Īuliī sunt."

Dāvus nummōs nōn sūmit, et sōlus discēdit ex templō. In forō Iūlius Dāvum interrogat: "Estne Mēdus in templō?" Dāvus tacet.

Iūlius: "Respondē, Dāve! In templōne est servus meus?"

Dāvus respondet: "In templō est. . . servus tuus nūllus. (Mēdus servus tuus iam nōn est.)"

Iūlius, quī prīma tantum verba Dāvī audit, ex oppidō discēdit sine Mēdō. Mēdus sine dominō ex oppidō discēdit.
