Read the following passage and answer questions number 99-102 that refer to the passage.
The gypsies are a tribe of strange people. They do not have any fixed home, but wander about from place to place and live in tents. They were originally natives of India. But as they reached England from Egypt, the Enghish took them for Egyptians. This is why they came to be called gypsies. They were believed to possess strange powers. They could tell your fortune by reading the palm of your hand. It was thought they stole little children to train them in their way of life. Whenever a child was lost, it was thought that it had been carried away by gypsies. So they were arrested and sent for trial. But this attitude towards the gypsies has gradually changed.
