They could not see. They were blind. One day, one of the blind men said, ‘There’s an elephant in Kampung Bahru.’ The second man said,’An elephant? What is an elephant?’ The first man said,’I don’t know’. The second man said,’I don’t know what an elephant is like. Do you know what an elephant is like?’ Nobody knew. So they all went to Kampung Bahru to find the elephant. The first man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its trunk. ‘Ah,’he said, ’Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s like a snake. It is long and rubbery.’ The second man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its tusks. ’Ah,’he said, ’Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s not like a snake. It’s like a kris. It’s sharp and smooth.’ The third man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its ear. ‘Ah,’ he said, ‘Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s not like a snake. It’s not like a kris. It’s like a big leaf. It’s smooth and thin.’ The fourth man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its leg. ‘Ah,’ he said, ‘Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s not like a snake. It’s not like a kris and it’s not like a big leaf. It’s like a tree. It’s round and hard.’
  • 2. The fifth man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its side. ‘Ah,’ he said, ‘Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s not like a snake. It’s not like a kris. It’s not like a big leaf and it’s not like a tree. It’s like a wall. It’s high and wide.’ The sixth man touched the elephant. He couldn’t see it, but he could feel it. He felt its side. ‘Ah,’ he said, ‘Now I know what an elephant is like. It’s not like a snake. It’s not like a kris. It’s not like a big leaf. It’s not like a tree and it’s not like a wall. It’s like a rope. It’s long and thin.’ The six men began to quarrel and shout at each other. The elephant just couldn’t keep quiet anymore. He said, ’Excuse me. Everybody is right. My trunk is like a snake. My tusks are like krises. My ears are like big leaves. My legs are like trees. My sides are like walls. My tail is like a rope.’ Additional instructions: Print the question paper. The question paper is to be attached with the answer script.
