Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow.

Pollution is the release of unwanted materials such as plastic bags, can, untreated waste products, and smoke into the land, atmosphere, rivers and oceans. These disturb the natural process of the earth. These materials are known as pollutants. Very often, these pollutants are waste products from industrial, agricultural or domestic processes. The earth has natural processes which are very good at breaking down and recycling natural waste. However, waste has become excessive in most places and the natural recycling systems have become overloaded.

There are different kinds of pollution such as air, land and water pollution. The air we breathe can be dirty and dangerous because of the pollutants it may contain. This could lead to illnesses like cancer, asthma and reduced brain growth in children.

Power stations, factories, motor vehicles and fuel burning in homes are the main causes of air pollution which is carried by the wind and spread in our environment. We can stop pollution by doing the following: buy and use environmentally friendly products, never drop used materials/containers everywhere, join in a local project to clean up your neighborhood, save energy and remember to turn off the radio, cooking fire, TV and lights when they are not being used.

SECTION A

For question 1-5 listen careful to the passage being read and answer the questions that follow.

Stigma is what a person suffers because of the belief that something, - a condition, feature or person is disgraceful. There are three types of stigma.

Stigma may be linked to physical features, weight, height, looks, physical or mental disability or medical conditions that people fear like HIV, cancer, leprosy and mental illness.

It is also connected with behaviour that does not fit with the standard of society such as alcoholism or criminal behaviour. Some are stigmatized because of someone else's unacceptable actions - rape victims or a child conceived through rape often suffer such stigma.

Someone's race, religion, nationality or tribe can carry stigma too. Stigma leads to harmful myths and discrimination. People are labelled bad or as not fit to be part of a society because of it. In fact disease and disability are often seen as punishment for sins.

Stigma leads to violence even to the killing of an individual or group. This includes ethnic cleansing, removing or murdering people because of their racial or tribal background - or genocide - attempting to murder an entire group. This happened to the Jews in Mazi ceremony and to Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994.

Fear of stigma! Labelling people is too easy. Think of yourself. See each person as an individual.

SECTION C.

A long time ago hare and the elephant were great friends. They ate together and drank together and even wore same clothes. It was unusual to see the hare wearing oversized clothes that belonged to the Elephant. The Hares clothes went only as far as the head and so in an attempt to please the hare, the elephant wore the Hares clothes on his head. One day as the hare was walking around the village, he found a pair of shoes. The shoes belonged to Assumpta, the chief’s daughter. The Hare tried them and when they fitted he took them and went on his way proudly showing off to the elephant. The elephant wanted a similar pair of shoes. They had to be exactly the same size and Colour. The hare said he would make the Elephants feet smaller first. He said they should start working the next day at a secret place where no one else would see him. The Hare made a big fire and heated an iron on it with the red hot iron he started slicing the Elephant’s feet. The Elephant did not want to show any signs of pain, when at last he could not bear the pain, he yelled out loudly.

“Elephant”, said the hare mockingly, “your size does not allow you to cry like a baby. Don’t you want the shoes?” actually I don’t feel any pain at all,” lied the Elephant.
