Read the passage below. Then answer the questions that follow. Devin was amazed by what he saw when he jumped into the water.

Some shimmered so brightly that they must have been made of silver. Others were bright blue, red, and yellow. It was as if a museum full of paintings had been turned into fish and let loose among the coral. To his left he could see his sister Brianna swimming near a big fan- shaped piece of coral. He motioned toward the surface, and they both swam up and stuck their heads out. “Is this great or what?” Devin asked. “Yeah!” said Brianna. “I’m going to spend my whole vacation out here.” 1.
