Read the following conversation and then answer questions 1 to 5.

Father:   Mueni, did I tell you the other day that animals can be grouped into two major groups?
Mueni:   Yes you did, daddy. But you did not tell us the animals in each of the two groups.
Maingi:   I remember in our yesterday's Social Studies lesson, Madam Machoine told us that some animals live with human beings at home and                         others  live in the forests.
Father:   Absolutely. The ones living with humans at home are called domestic animals while the other group is made up of wild animals. Most wild                      animals live in game parks and game reserves.
Mueni:    I like domestic animals because they help us. Cows give us milk and meat, same to goats and camels, pigs gives us pork and sheep give us                 wool and meat called mutton,
Maingi:  Yes, and again, some domestic animals are kept for services. A dog is a good guard. It alerts the family whenever there is danger. Donkeys                   help us carry luggage on carts. Cats help us control destructive rats and mice.
Father:   On the other hand, wild animals attract tourists who come to visit our country. As they see them, we earn foreign exchange which our                             country  uses for various development projects. All animals, therefore, are important to us.
