Passage Reading and English Comprehension

Read the following passage and answer the following questions based on it

Long ago there was a King of Britain whose name was Lear. He was over eighty years of age. So, old and worn with cares of his kingdom, he decided that the time had come to give up his crown and his possessions and spend his few remaining years in peace.

But King Lear had no son to succeed him; he had only three daughters. The eldest of these was Goneril, wife of Duke of Cornwall; and the youngest and most beautiful, Cordelia was still unmarried. The aged king determined to divide his kingdom among his three daughters; so he called them together to tell them of his purpose, saying that he would give the largest share to the one that loved him most.

Goneril, a selfish cold-hearted woman, pretended that she loved him more than her eye-sight, grace, health, beauty, honour - more than life itself. Regan, who was like her elder sister in character, protested that even the extravagant declaration of Goneril's love for her father was not strong enough for her. All her joy, she said, was in finding favour with her father.

Carried away by the loving words of these false, selfish women, the old king gave each a third of his kingdom; but when the kind-hearted Cordelia, who did truly love her father, would not exaggerate the terms of her love beyond those which a dutiful daughter should employ, Lear was enraged at her and gave her nothing, dividing his share of his kingdom between her two sisters.
