There was once a severe drought. Ivan's well was low on water, and he wasn't sure what would happen to the fruit plants in his yard. He was just about to leave when he observed three men staring intently at his residence. He was afraid the three strangers were plotting a robbery attempt on his home. He took action fast. “My son, money has become scarce due to the drought,” he shouted to his son. There are numerous thieves. Let us protect our assets by placing all of our jewelry in a box and throwing it into the well. They will be safe there. ” He instantly instructed his kid to gather some huge stones and place them in a box to be thrown into the well. The thieves were overjoyed when they heard the box fall into the well.

They arrived at the well that night. The box was large and had sunk to the bottom of the well. They'd have to take part of the water to get it. They started to take water from the well and dump it onto the ground. Ivan had set up a system to ensure that the water got to his fruit trees. From the well, he had channels leading to each of the trees. The thieves had already drained enough water from the box to water the trees by the time they discovered it. It was almost dawn. Ivan called the soldiers, and the thieves were caught as they attempted to open the box.

What would a good title be for the above story?

Correct! Wrong!

Correct answer: "A Clever Idea"

The word “cunning” means one full who is of tricks. In the beginning of the passage, Ivan would be best described as “cautious”, because he was trying to prevent the thieves from robbing him. The “well” is just an element in the story that creates the problem. The “thieves” are the villains in the story. At the end, Ivan does become clever and outwits the thieves. However, the best title for this story is “The Clever Idea,” because it sums up what was done to catch “the thieves” and solve the problem.
