Here are two drafts of the first part of Carol’s story. Use them to answer questions 22-25.
My friend Tony Donato asked me to be his campaign manager in his bid for junior class president. I quickly agreed. I thought it would be very easy to get Tony elected, especially when I found out that his competition was Lorna Sadler, a quiet girl who was in the French Club and on the math team. It wouldn’t be hard to beat her.
To my surprise, one day after school Lorna approached me. She said she knew I was Tony’s campaign manager, but she asked me to work on her campaign instead. She calmly explained why she thought she would make a better class president than Tony. When I told her that I wouldn’t desert Tony, she smiled as if she had expected me to say that. She said I had to be true to myself. Then she told me to let her know if I changed my mind. I was shocked at her nerve, but at the same time, I had to respect her self-confidence. This girl was no pushover after all.
Warning Tony that he needed to prepare really well for the approaching debate with Lorna, he wouldn’t listen to me. He just laughed. For the first time, I felt a prickle of doubt about him. He was a great buddy, but would he make a decent class president?
