Simu ni chombo cha watu cha kuwasiliana. Simu hutumia mawimbi ili kupokea sauti au picha. Kuna aina mbili za simu. Rununu na simu ya ofisi.

Simu ya ofisi au simu ya nyumbani mara nyingi hutumiwa ofisini ama nyumbani. Simu hii huwekwa mahali fulani maalum katika ofisi. Simu hii huwekwa katika mapokezi. Inapopigwa, huwezi kuona nambari ya anayepiga.
Rununu pia huitwa simu tamba, selula au rokono. Rununu ni simu ndogo ambayo unaweza kuibeba mahali popote unapoenda. Rumunu hutuinia simu kadi. Pia hutumia kadihela ili kupata muda wa maongezi. Manufaa ya rununu ni tumbi tumbi. Hata kama ni ndogo wahenga walisema usione wembamba wa reli, gari moshi hupita.
Manufaa ya rununu ni kuwa huweza kutuma arafa. Arafa ni ujumbe mfupi unaotumwa kwa njia ya kuandika. Pia, hutumika katika biashara kwa kutuma pesa za kununua bidhaa.
Simu pia hutumika kuwapa watu ajira kwa kuajiriwa katika duka la M-pesa, kuuza rununu na vifaa vyake. Watu wengine huzitengeneza simu zilizoharibika kwa malipo na wao hupata ajira.
Hakuna kizuri kisichokuwa na hila. Rununu ina hasara pia. Inaweza kutumiwa na waovu kuwaibia watu pesa. Aidha kutuma ujumbe wa chuki, matusi na picha chafu zisizofaa.

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.

Soma kifungu kifuatacho kisha ulibu maswali 31- 40.
Vita ni hall ya kukosa amani na utulivu. Hall hiyo husababisha kutoelewana na kupigana. Mara nyingi, vita husababishwa na ugpmvi. Vita huweza kutokea kila mahali na kwa kila umri. Pengine hata mahali unaposomea, shuleni au darasani, umewahi kuona wanafunzi wenzako wakipigana. Pengine hata wewe mwenyewe umewahi kuhusika katika vita. Je, umewahi kuona watu wakipigana njiani ukielekea nyurnbani kutoka shuleni? Kuna nyakati ambapo vita hutokea kati ya watu wazima kama vile wazazi au makabila mawili ambayo ni tofauti. Kiwango cha juu cha vita huwa ni vita katika nchi. Vita kama hivi huweza kutokana na kutoelewana katika jambo la kitaifa kama vile matokeo ya uchaguzi. Vita vina madhara gani?

Ifahamike kuwa vita husababisha kuumia kwa watu na mifugo. Watu walioumizwa wakati wa vita hulia kwikwikwi kutokana na maumivu. Wengine huishia kuaga dunia kutokana na majeraha katika vita. Mali nayo huharibiwa mno. Utapata kuwa maduka ya watu na nyumba zao huchomwa bila sababu maalum. Magari hupigwa na kuvunjwa vioo au kuchomwa. Uharibifu huu wa niali hurudisha nyuma uchumi wa taifa letu. Masomo, biashara na kazi haziwezi zikafanyika kwa kuwa ni vigumu kusafiri katika mazingira yaliyo na vita. Wanafunzi na walimu hubakia katika nyumba zao wakihofia kuangamizwa na wapiganaji. Hakuna awezaye kuuza wala kununua chochote kwa kuwa maduka yote hufungwa. Upendo na umoja katika nchi nao hurudi chini. Hilo ni tatizo kubwa kwa kuwa umoja na ushirikiano ni muhimu sana.
Kunapotokea kutoelewana, njia ya pekee huwa ni kupigana ama kuna njia nyingine? Mwenzako anapokukasea shuleni ama nyumbani, unafaa kufanya nini? Jinsi tunavyojua, kupigana hakufai hata kidogo. Mazungumzo yanafaa kuwapo kati ya watu wawili waliokosana ama makundi mawili ambayo yamekosana. Kama hakuna kuelewana, husisheni mtu au watu wengine iii wasaidie kuleta utulivu. Aliyekosea hushauriwa kuomba msamaha na aliyekosewa amsamehe mwenzake. Tukumbuke kuwa kiln mtu hukosea. Hakuna mkamilifu ila Mungu pekee.

mitano. Musa alipenda kufanya rnzaha na kuchezea wenzake. Wakati mwingine alipokuwa shuleni, alianguka chini na kuanza kulia. Walimu na wanafunzi waliingiwa na wasiwasi sana. Baada ya kuulizwa kwa mucla mrefur Musa alisema kwa sauti ya unyonge, "Mimi ni rngonjwa, ninaumwa na tumbo." Walimu walitafuta njia ya kumrudisha nyumbani kwao. Kula nyumbani alilala kidogo kisha akasimama na kusema kuwa amepona. Aliifanya hii kuwa tabia yake hasa alipojua kuwa hakuwa amefanya kazi yoyote ya mwalimu. Alijifanya mgonjwa kiasi cha kushindwa kutembea. Wanafunzi wengine walimsikia siku moja akimwambia mwenzake kuwa hiyo ilikuwa njia rahisi ya kutonaswa vvameiti tura' Wakati akiwa katika likizo ya Disemba, alikuwa akitumwa na wazazi wake kuwapeleka mifugo msituni wale nyasi. Kwa kuwa hakutaka kuifanya kazi hiyo, alitafuta njia ya kuwafanya wazazi waache kumtuma msituni. Baada ya muda mfupi wa kuwafikisha ng'ocr be malishoni, angeanza kupiga kelele, "Uuuuwi! Wooi! Weziii!" Wanakijiji walifika pale kwa kasi sana. Ajabu ni kuwa mifugo wote walikuwa wametulia tuti wakila nyasi. Musa naye alikuwa juu ya kitima fufani akiruka na kupiga kelele.

Alipiga kelele na kuomba msaada. Hakuna aliyeonekana iii kumsaidia. Mwizi mmoja alimshika na kumfunga kwenye mti.

There was plenty of food and he had numerous places to hide whenever he smelt danger. One day, lie countryside mouse invited his friend who lived in a distant town to spend a few days with him in Lhe countryside. The friend honoured the invitation and was received with open arms upon his arrival. The two friends shared exciting stones about their homes and life in general. The host served his guest a variety of sumptuous dishes. The town mouse enjoyed the meal and expressed his gratitude'. He had eaten to his fill besides enjoying some really nice local drinks.
Although the town mouse treasured the hospitality he got from his friend, he felt life in the countryside was rather boring. There was no entertainment of any kind. There was no electricity and darkness reigned supreme at night, Furthermore, the entire neighbourhood appeared d.ull and untidy. He preferred the excitement that the town provided. His friend had asked him to spend a fortnight in the countryside but he felt he missed the fun that characterised life in town. A couple of nights was enough. He opted to return to his home. Before he left, he asked his host to visit him the next weekend. The countryside mouse promised to pay his friend a visit at his earliest convenience. He assured the town mouse that he would bring him some fruits and vegetables from the countryside since he knew such foods were scarce in towns.

He was dressed to the nines. Having packed his luggage, set off just after the morning meal. The journey took him roughly five hours. When he arrived in town, he was both fatigued and starving. His host picked him from the bus terminus and took him home. The countryside mouse was greatly amazed at what he saw. Flis friend lived in a big house, in the heart of the city. He lived especially in a banquet hail, where dozens of delicious dishes were served to a party of revellers and other guests, He was green with envy. He wished he got a chance to five in such a magnificent house. The food he was served was more delicious than any other food he had ever eaten. His mouth watered the moment food was brought to table.
While the two mice were enjoying a finger-licking meal, something unexpected happened. The barking of dogs rent the air. The countryside mouse was alarmed. He knew what such sounds meant. He would have scampered for safety had his host not assured him that his safety was guaranteed. Suddenly, the door of the banquet hail flung open. A party of dancers, together with four huge dogs entered the room. The two mice were frightened beyond measure. They jumped off the dining table and hid themselves in a far corner of the room.
When the things calmed down and the dancers went away with their huge dogs, the two friends came out of the hiding, still trembling with great fear. The country mouse bidding 'good-bye' to his friend said, if this is the fine way of living in the city, l would best prefer to have only my simple barley bread in the countryside. While there my safety is guaranteed i don't want to
