Read the passage below and then answer questions 26 to 38
Long time ago, in the village of Bobo, there lived two men. They were both hunters and they depended on what they caught in the forest for their meals. The younger one was Thomas, while the older one was called Bernard. One season, they went for months without catching any game in the forest. It was dry season and most animals had immigrated to other regions in search of food and water. Both men were very desperate as their only food reserves were running out and they did not know where to get food.
One day, as Thomas was hunting in the forest, he met an old man carrying two bags, one was large and another smaller one. The man appeared tired and thirsty and Thomas shared with him his little water supplies and offered to carry his bags for him. Thomas carried the old man's bags across the forest to his destination.
One day, the king got an idea. He decided to teach them a lesson in humility. He invited his ministers to his palace for a special banquet. A room was set aside for this purpose where they were to have their party. The day came and the ministers arrived in great style. Each seemed to out do the other in manner of dressing. Some came with special horse carriages made ofleather.
The older man offered Thomas one of the bags. Tom, being a humble man, chose the smaller one. He opened it and to his surprise, there were beautiful ornaments and gold jewellery. He looked around to thank the old man but realised he had disappeared.
When he returned home, he sold the jewellery and bought lots of food which he shared with his hunter friend. Bernard asked him where he got the money to buy food and Thomas told him. Bernard decided to go look for the old man the next day in the hope that he would also be showered with gifts.
On arrival at the same spot in the forest, Bernard found the old man seated. Bernard asked him what he would pay if he carried his bags. The old man refused to answer and asked for some water to drink instead.
Bernard had water in his bag but he lied that he didn't have any. The old man then told him where he was needed after Bernard took the bags and started carrying them. But he complained all the way that the bags were heavy, thinking he would be paid more than Thomas.
When they got to the man's destination, Bernard was asked to choose a bag. He greedily took the bigger bag and rushed home with it to brag to his family. However, on opening it, he realised that it was full of rocks and sand. He then realised that if only he hadn't been greedy, he might have got a better reward.

Read the passage below and then answer questions 39 to 50.
Road accidents are very common on our roads today. Many of them are caused by recklessness by road users in the past few years, hundreds of people have lost their lives in fatal road accidents. Pedestrians and cyclist make up half of the deaths in our roads. The other half is made up of passengers. Among those killed and injured have been children. Some parents fear travelling with children, dreading what could happen.
However, there are measures parents can take to keep their children safe on the road. This is especially so when using private cars. Here, they have control of the activities that take place in the car. Parents should therefore equip themselves and their children with the knowhow ca presenting and dealing with road accidents. Adults seat belts are not designed for children. They also expose the child to harm in case of crash. Although a child can travel safely in the front seat of the car, it is safer for them to travel in the back seat.
When travelling, the parent may need to adjust the seat the child will use. If a parent is travelling with a newborn baby they should put them in a rear-facing seat. If you must travel with your child in the front scat, you should ensure that the air bag is turned off. The air bag could seriously injure the child during an accident. Aparent should only consider allowing a child to use an adult seat belt when they attain a height of 135 centmeters and above. If the adult seat belt does not lie on the child's hips, chest and shoulder but rather lie on their tuinmy and neck, the parent should continue keeping them in their car seat. Children should never jump, stand or play on their seat when a vehicle is moving. In addition, they should not walk on the seat when the vehicle, especially a bus, is moving. When buying a car seat, parents should bear in mind the price, comfort and the child's height and weight.
When walking, parents should teach their children to use paths and pavements. They should learn to use traffic lights and pedestrians' walk. They should always put down whatever they are holding, look right, left and right again before crossing the road. They should learn to make eye contact with drivers and watch out for vehicles that may be reversing or turning. A reversing driver may fail to see small children if they are behind the car or are below the height visible from the car's side mirror. Children's band should be held in car parks just as on roads. Finally, when walking with a child along a pavement, ensure that they are further from the road than you! are.
