Read the poem below and answer questions 6 to 8

I started this life with fear, I was only six years old.
When I started to realize, that girls world is cold.
Just like a useless device, it's not right to complain.
I should withstand all emotional and physical pain.

I heard that one of my friends became a hero.
Because she took the out-dated cut.
That makes her so, a member of a cult
I knew my day would soon come anyway

It was never an option, it was compulsory
I had to bite my lips, hold back my tears
As I feel the knife's tip, as it painfully tears.

I grew up in pain of waiting for pain
Seeking for something to separate us
But people still wanted to hurt me
I got used to everything even if so horrible..

I guess they never cared about my emotion.
Or they would empathize knowing the sensation.
Inside me was a tremendous commotion.
I was lost in an invisible and painful ocean.

F. G. M is a nightmare, oh come the golden age.
When it will all vanish, wait for the golden age.
Come end this punishment, get me out of the cage.

Read the following passage and answer questions 12-15.

A budget is simply a spending plan that takes into account estimated current and future income and expenses for a specified future time period, usually a year. Having a budget keeps your spending in check and makes sure that your savings are on track for the future. Budgeting can help you set long-term financial goals, keep you from overspending, help shut down risky spending habits, and more.

A budget helps you figure out your long-term goals and work towards them. If you just drift aimlessly through life, tossing your money at every shiny, new object that happens to catch your eye, how will you ever save up enough money to buy a car or put a down payment on a house? A budget forces you to map out your goals, save your money, keep track of your progress, and make your dreams a reality. By seeing what money you earn and what money you have going out through a budget, you can create a map for where you need to go to get your goal, whether that is purchasing a home in a few years or going to graduate from school.
