A. Read the story and rewrite it in reported speech. Answer why the first manager couldn't insure the man's life.


A young man went into an insurance office. He wanted to get some life insurance. The manager of the company wanted to ask him a couple of questions. The young man agreed to answer them.

When asked about the health of his mother, the man said that she had had problems with her health all her life. About his father he told that he had heart problems. The manager was sorry to hear that and asked at what age the man's parents had died. He answered that they had died at an early age: mother at 35 and father at 40. The manager sighed and refused to give the man any life insurance.

When the man was leaving the office, another manager came up to him. He advised the young man not to be so honest with people and use his imagination.

The young man went to another insurance company. The manager immediately asked him about the health of his parents and about the age when they died. But this time the young man was ready with an answer. He told the manager that his mother had been very keen on sports. She died when she was ninety because she fell off her bike.
