Read the following passage and then answer questions 6 to 10.


Do you have a friend? I hope so. If you don't, then it is high time you got one. Everyone needs a friend they can depend on. Friends can be a great company and can lend a helping hand when need arises. Human beings depend on friends. It is the same way that animals depend on each other.

There is always a unique friendship that may exist between animals of different species. For example, honey bagger and honey guide are known to be great friends. These two animals depend on each other for their survival. Honey guide upon identifying a honey comb, would make a special sound which would inform the honey bagger of the existence of honey. The honey bagger would come and extract the honey from the comb. Meanwhile, the honey guide would fly down and eat the combs that drops on the ground. At the end of it all, the two animals would both benefit from this unique relationship.

Another unique relationship is between the giraffe and a small bird called oxpecker. In Africa, oxpeckers can usually be seen riding on the back or the head of a giraffe. One may think that a passenger of this type may be annoying, but the giraffe and the little bird depend on each other for meals and for protection from their enemies.

The oxpecker gets its meal by using its thick beak to eat the fleas, ticks and flies off the skin of the giraffe. It helps its friend by munching on annoying pests that are in hard-to-reach places.
