Read the following passage and then answer questions 26 to 38.
They were yelling behind me and I was frightened. "I have to run fast." Bondi told himself. He vowed never to allow the blood thirst crowd to catch him. He flew past some hawkers; some of the hawkers dropped their goods and fled out of his way. Some courageous ones tried to throw anything they could find at him. At this time, he knew his life was hanging on a razor's edge. He knew too well that if he doesn't run very fast then the crowd would not spare him. The mob was determined to catch him. He turned right into a dark alley and the mob lost track of him. He had escaped death yet again by whisker. His speed, luck and knowledge of streets had saved his neck.
Why was Bondi running away? You see, Bondi had been walking quietly behind a young woman going as he goes about his usual business. She was smartly dressed and had a nice handbag that matched the colour of her attires. Then she tumed and saw Bondi. Maybe she thought Bondi was about to snatch her handbag, she started to shout at the top of her lungs, "Thief! Thief! Help me!" When Bondi saw her staring at him and pointing in his direction, Bondi realized she thought he was a thief. A small crowd was gathering as curious onlookers sought to satisfy their seemingly insatiable curiosity. Bondi didn't need a sixth sense to guess what was likely to happen. Knowing crystal clearly that no one would give him a chance to explain himself, he took to his heels at a dare devil velocity. He had to save his neck at all costs. Are you wondering why everyone is suspicious of Bondi? Come to think of this. A street boy, dressed in tatters, deriving his food from the garbage and of course sniffing glue! Don't you think he is scary? Nevertheless, does it make him a criminal? It is such a pity. All his friends are street children. As a matter of fact they are his only family. The terrns „father" and mother are alien to him. But why should the public treat all the street children with suspicion? Must they check their pockets every time a street child pass? Do they deserve to be an object of insults and stones? They, too, have a right to live.

Read the following passage then answer questions 39 to 50.
Although I was born and brought up in the countryside, I spent most of my time in the city. However, I have not found the city life as appealing as the countryside's. There are countless reasons why I would rather spend the rest of my life in the rural areas.
First and foremost, the clean and fresh air of the village makes one feel healthy and refreshed at all times. It is relaxing and pleasant to enjoy the pure air wafting with the exciting fragrance of fresh flowers and trees. It is possible to take an evening strollin the woods. This is unlike in the cities that are crowded most of the time. People are more worried of the traffic jam that characterises the city roads. By the time commuters get home, they are so tired that they have no time for a stroll. As a matter of fact, who would enjoy having a stroll in overcrowded streets where human beings compete with automobiles for space? Besides, the air is rather polluted hence resulting in strange ailments.
Secondly, people living in the countryside feel safer than the city dweliers. The city dwellers are in a state of fear every day. City dwellers are exposed to violent deaths caused by careless drivers and thoughtless motorcyclists. Furthermore, in the past few years, the crime rate in cities has increased to such a degree that people are afraid to even walk in the streets for fear of falling victim to a snatch thief, a gun-wielding gangster or a rapist. While there are cases of crime in the villages, they are not as serious as they occur in the cities.
In the countryside, people can walk freely and confidently both day and night without being attacked by anyone. In fact, in the streets you will come across friendly, helpful neighbours who are all smiles and full of warmth, unlike the unfriendly city dwellers. When there is a function, happy or sad, all the villagers are there to lend a helping hand: something that is quite unheard-of in the cities.
People living in the countryside are closer to nature. In the village, you are woken up by the singing of birds rather than by the irritating noise from the traffic; that is quite common in urban areas. Homes in the countryside are surrounded by nature which has a soothing effect on both the mind and the body. In the rural areas, you do not have to leave your home to feel closer to nature because here, nature comes to you. It is common to see wild animals like monkeys, hares and antelopes roaming about.
The fact that people living in the countryside are able to produce their own food makes life cheap and casy Why would someone have to buy vegetables and fruits from the grocer if he can grow his own? People eat fresh foods hence are not prone to lifestyle diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Time tends to run more slowly in the countryside which takes away a great deal of stress that is experienced by city dwellers who are always in a hurry to get somewhere.

    1. All people are generous
    2. Police officers patrol the villages

    4. Only people move about on streets
  8. What do you think happens when one is bereaved in the city?

    4. They keep wild animals at home.

    3. people don't have to buy certain types of food
