Read the following conversation and then answer questions 1 to 5.
Sam: Hello Pam. Where are you going? It is still break time.

Pam: Hello Sam. I am taking this book back to the library. I was just finishing the last page. It is one of the most interesting storybooks I have ever read.

Sam: What is the book all about?

Pam: It is about a boy, Kanusu, who was addicted to drugs and substance abuse. The boy dropped out of school and joined the bad boys in town.

Sam: Oh my! Why did poor Kanusu decide to do that?

Pam: It was because his new friends in town persuaded him to do so. They also threatened to chase him from their group if he refused to comply.
