Read the following passage and then questions 6 – 9.


Drug use is on the rise among the youth today. Young people experiment with both hard drugs and alcohol. Some claim it gives them a shared experience. Others say drugs help them to calm down. There are those who are tricked into believing that drugs would help them solve whatever problems they have. The end result is getting addicted.

Alcoholism for instance, is a chronic disorder in which a person is unable to refrain from frequent and excessive consumption of alcohol. Excessive drinking damages the liver and leads to liver cirrhosis. The alcoholic has impaired judgement and disturbed sleep.

The government of Kenya has ensured that there is no sale of alcohol for children under the age of 18. In Kenya, it is illegal for minors to consume alcohol. According to the Alcoholic Drinks Control Act 2010, it is an offense for a person to sell, give, or supply alcoholic drinks to a person under the age of 18. It is also an offense for a person under the age of 18 to purchase, attempt to purchase, or consume alcoholic drinks.

Surprisingly we still find some rogue businessmen doing the contrary. This menace of drug and substance use should be fought by everyone. It should not be left to the government alone. We all need a society that will develop tomorrow. We all need leaders tomorrow. We all need a generation after us. For us to achieve all that, we must bring up our children in the right way. They should know that drug and substance use is something to be avoided like the plague.

    1. knowingly by following in the footsteps of their siblings.
    2. unconsciously by believing that they have a solution to all their troubles.

Read the passage below and then answer questions 10 – 12.


The lion, the donkey and the zebra were very good friends. They lived together in the forest. They also hunted together and ate together as well. Whenever the lion went out to hunt, her children would be well taken care of. The problem was she did not know who between the zebra and the donkey looked after her cubs. Every time she dared ask; both would respond and say they did. This confused her even more.

To make matters worse, the lion was unable to identify who the donkey was and who the zebra was because they looked so much alike. One day, the lion came up with an idea to paint stripes so that he could tell them apart. He would thereafter hide somewhere in the bush and watch who actually cared for her cubs. When he did so, all the other donkeys that were in the land felt that their friend the zebra was more beautiful and decided to also paint stripes on themselves.

The hare who did the job for the lion had an idea; he would charge them more. But before he decided on that, he talked to the lion. The lion was not only angry with the hare but also with the donkeys. Eventually the hare charged them double the price and painted them the same way he had done to the zebras. To date, the lion cannot know who is the zebra and which one is the donkey. Their friendship died as well.

  1. Why was the lion unable to distinguish between the zebra and the donkey?
    1. animals looked beautiful.
    2. They both responded whenever the lion asked a question.
    3. They looked so much alike.

    2. ven today.
    3. till kingdom come.
    4. up to when.

    1. The lion and the donkey.
    2. Why zebras have stripes.
    3. The lion and the zebra.
    4. The end of the lion, donkey and zebra friendship.
