SECTION C

COMPREHENSION

Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow. 

The weather all over the world in 1997 – 1998 was very unusual. In Tanzania and other parts of East Africa, there was a lot of rain. Some parts of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and other neighboring countries were flooded. Houses were destroyed and many people became homeless. This destruction affected not only houses but also crops and this led to poor health because people did not get enough harvest 

Roads and railways were swept away, so transport and transportation became another problem. Some people were killed. In some parts of East Africa, diseases became a problem. Stagnant and dirty water affected people in two different ways. Stagnant water made the breeding of mosquitoes easier and many people were affected by malaria. Oher diseases such as typhoid and cholera were caused by dirty water which was used for domestic activities like cooking, drinking and bathing. The results of this weather change affected people psychologically, socially and economically.

The cause of this unusual weather was El Nino. This is a large current of warm sea water. The name El Nino means “the CHILD”. Peruvian fisherman gave the current of warm sea water this name because it appeared in Christmas time. It does not appear every year. It appears after every 5 years. We can describe El Nino as a current of warm sea water that moves eastward across the Pacific Ocean. The current of sea water is very large.

QUESTIONS

  1. As used in the passage, the word “usual” means ……
  2. Why did many people become homeless?
  3. Why were many people affected by malaria?
  4. What does the name El Nino mean?
  5. After how long does El Nino appear?

PASSAGE TO BE READ

The captain blew the whistle. “Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to request those of you who are travelling to Nairobi to board the train.

 The train will leave in ten minutes, ”he said.

We all boarded and took our seats. Our bags were safely placed in the luggage racks above the seats and the journey began.

For the first time I was afraid of travelling in long machine. The engine was pulling along twenty-two carriages. As I sat on the train, I wondered who else was travelling with us, and how many people were in the train.

The train’s engine was very noisy. After a short while the train picked up speed and it looked as if we were overtaking buses, trailers and even small cars. It moved fast because of its strong engine.

As the train moved away from Kisumu, I could see the Kano plains. I also saw the rice plantations in Ahero. Before long the train reached Nakuru, it stopped for about thirty minutes and then continued with the journey.

We did not fall asleep throughout the journey because we wanted to see the beautiful places we were passing through. We did not even realize that we had reached Nairobi until one the boys shouted, “we are in the big city!”

At the railway station, the conductor bade us goodbye as we alighted from the train. The journey by train was very enjoyable.

SECTION C: COMPREHENSION:

Sea – Lions 

Sea – lions bear some resemblance to seals, though they are much larger. When fully grown they are from twelve to twenty  feet in length and from eight to fifteen in circumference; they are extremely fat, so that having cut through the skin, which is about an inch in thickness, there is at least a foot of fat before you come to either lean or bones.

Their skins are covered with short grey hair, but their tails and fins, which serve them for feet on shore, are almost black. They have a distant resemblance to an overgrown seal, though in some particulars there is a manifest difference between them, especially in males. These have a large snout, or trunk, hanging down five or six inches below the end of the upper jaw, which the females have not. Those animals divide  their time equally between the land and the sea, continuing at sea all the summer, and coming on shore at the setting in of winter, where they reside during the whole of that season. In this interval they bring forth their young and have generally two at a birth, which they suckle with their milk, they being at first about the size of a fully – grown seal. During the time these sea – lions continue on shore, they feed on the grass and small plants which grow near the blanks of fresh – water streams.

 

They often, especially the males, have furious battles with each other, principally about their females; and we were one day surprised by the sight of two sea – lions goring each other with teeth until they were covered with blood. 

Questions:

  1. Which is the bigger, a sea – lions or a seal? ________________________________
  2. What is the length of a fully grown sea – lion? ______________________________
  3. What is the thickness of a sea – lions skin? _________________________________
  4. What thickness of fat lies between the skin of a sea – lion and its flesh or bones?________________
  5. What purpose is served by the sea – lions tail and fins when it’s on shore? _____________
  6. Where does the sea – lion spend the summer? ____________________________________
  7. Where does it spend the winter? _______________________________________________
  8. What time of the year are young sea – lions born? _________________________________
  9. How does the face of a male  sea – lion differ from that of a female?___________________

 

  1. What do the male sea – lions fight about chiefly? __________________________________
