KP- COMPREHENSION –3
The Mohan house is located at the end of the street. This house sits farther back from the curb than the other houses. It is almost difficult to see from the road without peering behind the
deformed oak tree that has obscured it for years. Even so, the Mohan house stands out from the other houses on the street. It is tall and white. However, this white is no longer pristinely white, but a dingy greyish cream color. Long vines hang from the tattered roof. The Mohan house is two stories tall and has a large yard in the back that has never been mowed. The other houses on the street are a mere one story and have been painted a variety of
colors. The newer, single story properties all appear to have been built around the same time; the yards mostly being of the same size, and the houses appearing to be clones of one another. Aside from the Mohan house at the end, this street is a perfect slice of city. The inhabitants of the other houses wonder who lives in the ancient, dilapidated house at the end of the street.
