Task 1: LISTENING AND SPEAKING Read the following conversation and then answer questions 1 to 5.
Lion: As your all time king, I called you to this meeting so that we can together discuss matters pertaining our safety, comfortable life and any other we shall find burning. It is an important meeting because it is the first since we started this rainy season."

Gazelle: Mr. Lion, representing other gazelles, I feel that some animals like tiger and cheetah must stop depending on our meat for their dietary needs. If anything, they can as well feed on vegetation as we do. We need to live!

Rhino: That aside, we are tired of travelling long distances looking for water. I think we can drill our own well from which we can have water. This, I think, should be the first thing to be done after this meeting.

Antelope: Over the last three seasons, my family members and I have suffered acute famine due to lack of adequate pasture. This caused poor health and even death among us. I'd want us to start farming activities so that we can save food for consumption during famine.

Leopard: For quite sometime, there have been conflicts between some of us and human beings. I will not mention any of us but the ones who always walk into human residence and cause destruction and loss must stop it with immediate effect.

Rhino: I also think that we should hold occasional competitions in different games, abilities and talents. This will go a long way in improving our physical fitness. These areas can be dancing, running, singing among others. We can together come up with more areas.

Lion: Very well my members. My secretary had been taking your points. Together with my able committee, I shall have another meeting soon to deliberate on your matters. A day like this next week, I shall convene another general meeting and let you know the way forward.

Task 4: Intensive Reading (Trickster Narrative)
Read the story below and answer questions 26 to 30.
Once upon a time, hare was caught stealing yams. The people took him to the village and tied him to a pole. All the people came to see the thief who had been a manace to their farms. Hare felt very embarrassed. They then decided to kill him, and the best way to do it, they all agreed, was to build a fire around him and roast him alive. So, off they went to collect firewood. While the people had gone to collect firewood leaving hare alone, the jackal, who was looking for people's leftovers, happened to pass near the place where hare was tied. Hare saw him and called him over. The jackal came and was astonished to find his friend there.

"Why have you been tied up?" he asked, "Oh, it is simple," the hare replied, "The people of the village are preparing a feast for me. They have killed two cows and four goats and there is also some beer ready. They have tied me because I don't want to join their feast. They want to make sure I don't run away."

"But really," said the jackal. "You must have been very stupid to refuse that honour. If it had been me, I would have been delighted". "Well, that's easy enough," said the hare. "Just come and untie me and I'll tie you here instead. I don't wart their silly honours and feasts. You can have them all if you want."

So, quickly the jackal untied the hare and was instead tied up. The hare left and hid himself close whereby we could not be seen. Soon, the people returned and found the jackal tied to the pole instead of the hare. Now, since the jackal was more of a threat to their domestic animals than the hare, they were even happier to have him captive. They heaped up firewood around the pole and set it ablaze. The jackal's protests and pleas for mercy fell on deaf ears. The fire blazed, the wood crackled and the jackal perished. The hare then skipped out of his hiding place, showed himself once to the people and was gone.

  1. Why did the villagers leave hare alone tied to a pole?
  2. Where was the jackal going when he saw hare tied to a pole?
  3. Why were the people happier to find jackal instead of hare?
