Read the passage below and answer questions 26-38

The bell for lesson one had just rung. It was the second day of the third week of terra three. Tana sat on her seat and her heart was beating unusually harder. She had just completed the work given the day before. She knew the maths teacher was just about to enter the classroom and demand for the books. Mrs. Hardy was a no nonsense teacher. She never put up with any sort of laziness. Tana was well aware of this and she began to shake a little

She was still thinking about this when from the pavement the sound of shoes as they hit the ground filled her ears. Tana was already sweating. Then the heavy door was pushed and the figure of Mrs. Hardy filled the classroom. Her face was as hard as her name suggested. Not a single trace of smile could be seen. Then she ordered for all the maths exercise books. The class monitor did not hesitate. She hurriedly collected the books from the class members.

"Teacher, I'm feeling terrible pains on my belly. I think I'm very sick and can even die. Please allow me to go outside." Tana said this amid tears. She was holding her stomach with both hands and her eyes looked pale. When she finally collapsed on the floor and twisted on the ground like a snake, Mrs. Hardy believed her. She gave her a piteous look and beckoned some three boys. Together they lifted Tana who was now groaning and carried her outside. The headteacher was informed of Tana's condition and a car was hired to rush her to hospital. The driver in trying to save life, drove at the speed of lightning. They were rounding the last bend to the hospital gate when something breath taking happened.

The car must have lost control and it swerved out of the road and rolled eight times. When it finally stopped rolling, the wheels were facing the sky as the top part supported the rest of the car. When the ambulance came ten minutes later to carry the victims to the hospital, all the four occupants of the car were unconscious. The driver was not very lucky, he died at the scene of the accident. Both Mrs. Hardy and Mr.Riziki the teacher on duty had sustained fractures on the legs. Tana had lost her right arm which cut off at the elbow. The three stayed in the hospital ward for four months in plasters. When Tana recalled the events that led to the accident, she burst into fresh tears. She cried more and more. When she looked at the state of both Mrs. Hardy and Mr. Riziki. She felt her body burning with guilt.

Eyes are the second most complex organ after the brain Only one sixth of the human eyeball is exposed. If the human eye was 2 digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels.

Blind people can see their dreams as long as they weren't born blind. 80% of our memories are determined by what we see. Your eyelashes keep dirt out of your eyes. We all have unseen, harmless microscopic creatures living in our eyelashes. Yuck!

Your eyebrows prevent sweat dripping into your eyes. It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Although the function of tears is to keep eyes clean, scientists dor upset.

Your nose gets runny when you cry as the tears drain into your nasal passages. Some people have a fear of eyes; it's called omatophobia.
