COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

  1. Read the passage below carefully and answer the questions which follow.

The film industry in Tanzania has been doing great of late. This growth can be attributed to high end production managers and marketing authorities, also, the fact that Tanzania is ripe digitally, is also an added advantage towards this growth. Most of the local channels are flooded with local content unlike in previous years whereby soap operas and other violent television series from Korea and Philippines were order of the day.

Interestingly, local contents reflect our daily lives, and more appealing, these actors live amongst us, we meet some of them in our neighborhoods in churches and in mosques. We are happy when we take pictures with them and post in our social media platform and share with friends; this makes them as well to have similar feeling/s. However, the growth of film industry may not be stable in the near future when contents lack creativity as the case for now, whereby most of them are repeated.

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY

I. Read the passage below carefully and then answer the questions that follow

My name is Nianjema; I had not travelled to Mwanza before. My sister, Ananijali invited me to her house in Mwanza so that 1 could see the rocks. My mother told me to be polite to my sister and her husband during my stay with them. 1 was so excited and 1 told my friends about the journey. My sister told me that my brother-in-law will come to pick me over the weekend.

It was Saturday evening, when my brother in-law arrived at our place. He told me that, we would travel by bus as it was faster than the train and cheaper than the plane. On Sunday we bought tickets at the booking office in Dar-es-salaam and we managed to board the bus at 8,00a.m. The conductor was very respectful and polite in attending his passengers. When we reached Dodoma, I heard a screech of tyres and the bus started to move in a zigzag manner and finally stopped. •

Most of the passengers were screaming and I did the same. M.y brother in-law who was concerned with my safety held my hands and urged me to stop panicking. He told me that it was only a tyre bust and there was no more danger. The bus was moving at the speed of 80 kilometres per hour. We were all grateful to the driver, Mr_Ntoi, because if he Was moving with the high speed than that; we could have been involved in a very bad accident.

We all got out of the bus and the tyre was changed before we continued with our journey. We then stopped to refuel at Manyoni Kobil fuel station. The Amp attendant looked up and saw me looking at him. He smiled at me and I smiled hack. He told me that, I will be enjoying very much to see the wonders in the rock city where rocks are setted as if they are going to fall. He finally told me to bring him some fish on my way back. What he told me stimulated me a lot and I could not wait to get to Mwapza to see the rocks and tell my sister about the journey.

 The killing of a lion must be done in a special way. A group of twenty or thirty young Maasai finds a lion and come up to it from all sides. They wear no clothes or ornaments that might hamper them and carry only their spears and shields. They move closer to the lion until it leaps at the nearest man, who throws his spears and protects himself with his shield.  Immediately the other warriors throw their spears at the lion, usually kills it before it can attack them.

COMPREHENSION AND SUMMARY.

1. Read the passage below carefully and then answer the questions that follow.

My pet is a dog, his name is Nene. He has brown and black fur and his hind legs are slightly shorter than the front ones. His ears are always upright. I can remember certainly well the day my father brought him home. It was on 17th December, 2015. At that time he was a puppy of two months, it was surely the best day of my life. I held him and tried to be good at him, but it was a bad day for him since he had been separated from his mother and other puppies.

Nene did not eat or drink anything the whole day. Of course I was happy to have him for my own, but his cries made me feel sorry for him and I promised to take good care of him. After three days, he started eating well and even played with me.

Nene is a lovely dog, he is loved by all members of our family. He comes to great me whenever I come back from school. He wags his tail and lies down ready to play. He is an intelligent and obedient dog I have ever seen.

After finishing my homework, I always play with him. My mother often tells me, "Mark, I am happy you got what you have always wanted". We feed him once a day, we provide him with plenty of water throughout the day, along with dog-food. To make him clean we give him a bath with dog-shampoo once a week. We also clean his kennel every day. Every year, we take him to the veterinary clinic for vaccinations. He is both a protector and a friend.

QUESTIONS

(a) Answer the following questions by using the right information from the passage.

(i) Who was keeping the dog?

(ii) When was the dog brought home?

(iv) How many times was Nene fed in a day?

(v) Why was Nene taken to the veterinary clinic?

(ii) Nene was a protector and a friend ......

(iii) Mark did not like to play with the dog......

(iv) Nene's ears were always upright......

(v) Nene was brought home when he was three months old........

2. Read the following passage and answer the question that follows in the blank spaces provided.

Sports and games are necessary for maintaining health and physical fitness. Involving oneself in competitive sports and games encourages the sense of competition. Being a captain helps to provide the person with leadership qualities. Playing as a team encourages cooperation among players.

You may ask yourself, “If I spend my time in sports and games when should I study?” Here is the solution; study in the morning as the mind is still fresh and play in the evening as the mind is tired since sports and games make us mentally active. Remember the saying which says that “all study and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.

SECTION A 
1. Read the passage below carefully and then answer the questions that follow

HIV lives in the body fluid of an infected person. The virus is spread when these fluids get into the body of another person. This means that HIV is transmitted through having sexual intercourse with an infected person, using unsterilized surgical instruments such as knives, razor blades and syringes.

HIV is not spread from one person to another by touching, shaking hands, sitting together or eating together.

However, one can protect himself/herself from HIV infection by avoiding
 unprotected sex and the use of contaminated syringes, knives or razor blades.

Some people who are living with HIV/AIDS are afraid of death of live regrettably about how they got HIV/AIDS. The best thing to do for a person with AIDS is to spend time with his/her family and feel that he/she is just like other people who are not infected.

All children all over the world have certain things that they need to be given by their parents. These are called rights of the child. These can be divided into four groups.
