Read the passage below and answer the questions.

Once upon a time, there was a little girl, pretty and dainty. However, in summer time she
was obliged to go barefooted because she was poor, and in winter, she had to wear large
wooden shoes, so that her little instep grew quite red. In the middle of the village lived an
old shoemakers wife; she sat down and made, as well as she could, a pair of little shoes
out of some old pieces of red cloth.
They were clumsy, but she meant well, for they were intended for the little girl, whose
name was Karen. Karen received the shoes and wore them for the first time on the day of
her mothers funeral. They were certainly not suitable for mourning, but she had no
others, and so she put her bare feet into them and walked behind the humble coffin.
Just then, a large old carriage came by, and in it sat an old lady; she looked at the little
girl, and taking pity on her, said to the clergyman: Look here, if you give me the little
girl, I will take care of her. Karen believed that this was all on account of the red shoes,
but the old lady thought them hideous, and so they were burnt
