I decided to go to the market to buy a few handkerchiefs, the old ones :

Since I had nothing better to do, I decided to go to the market to buy a few handkerchiefs, the old ones had done vanishing. On the way I met an old friend of mine and I took him to a nearby restaurant for tea and snacks. Afterwards I went to the shop and selected a dozen handkerchiefs, I pulled out my purse to make the payment, and discovered that it was empty; I then realized that it was not my purse, it was a different purse altogether. How that happened is still a source of wonder to me and I refuse to believe that it was the work of my good old friend, for it was his purse that I held in my hand.

  1. The man could not buy the handkerchiefs because
    (a) he did not like the handkerchiefs
    (b) his friend did not have any handkerchiefs
    (c) the slop did not have any handkerchiefs
    (d) he had no money in the purse
  2. When he tried to take out the purse, he discovered that
    (a) it was not there
    (b) it was lost
    (c) it was a new purse
    (d) it was his friend’s purse
