1. Read the following text and answer the questions that follow: [4x3=12]

It was snowing a little outside quick, eager little Luxlike flakes that melted as soon as they touched your hand. I don't know where the snow came from, for there were stars out. Or maybe the stars were in my eyes and I just kept seeing them every time I looked up into the darkness. I waited a moment. You know, to start to skate at a crowded rink is like jumping on a moving merry-go-round. The skaters go skimming round in a coloured blur like gaudy painted horses and the shrill musical jabber re-echoes in the night from a hundred human calliopes. One in, I went all right. At least after I found out exactly where that rough ice was. It was "round, round, jump the rut, round, round, jump the rut, round, round-" And then he came. All of a sudden him arm was around my waist so warm and tight and he said very causally, "Mid if I skate with you?" and then he took my other hand. That's all there was to it. Just that and then we were skating. It wasn't that I'd never skated with a boy before. Don't be silly, I told you before I get around. But this was different. He was a smoothie! He was a big shot up at school and he went to all the big dances and he was the best dancer in town except Harold Wright, who didn't count because he'd been to college in New York for two years! Don't you see? This was different.

Questions:
(a) Why could the writer see star in the sky in a snowy night?
(b) Why did the speaker have to wait for some time before jumping into the rink?
(c) How did the boy propose her to skate with him?
(d) How was skating with this boy different from others?
