Which animal is on the left of the cow?

In the picture, we can see four animals in a line: a sheep, a cow, a dog, and a chicken. And the question asks us, which animal is on the left of the cow? Now, these words “on the left of” are important. They tell us the position of the animal we’re looking for. And they tell us the position of this animal compared with the cow. So, the first thing we should do is find the cow.

Now, which animal is on the left of the cow? Is it the sheep or the dog? Which direction is left? Well, perhaps you already know your left and right. One way that we could remember each direction is we can put our hands out flat like this. Our left hand is the one where we can see the L shape. And so, we know this direction is left and this direction is right. But let’s forget about right for now. We’re asked which animal is on the left of the cow. And if we look to the left, we can see the sheep. The animal on the left of the cow is the sheep.
