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) 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.

Katika nchi ya ughaibuni kulikuwa na mfalme mwenye dharau na maringo sana, aliwaona wananchi wake kama wajinga. Watu wake waliishi bila amani na walichukia vitendo vya mfalme wao. Mfalme huyo alikuwa anajigamba kuwa yeye ni tajiri kuliko wafalme wote katika nchi za jirani. Kwa ujumla mfalme huyo alikuwa mnyanyasaji na mwenyekebehi nyingi.

imageimageMfalme alikuwa mwenye kufuru sana, hata alidiriki kutamka kwenye mkutano wa hadhara kuwa hajawahi kuona njaa. Mzee mmoja mwenye busara aitwaye Bwana Adili alimwambia mfalme kuwa asihofu atampeleka mahali njaa inakopatikana. Bwana Adili kwa kukubaliana na mfalme walipanga siku ya safari ya kwenda kumwonesha mahali ilipo njaa. Safari hiyo ilikuwa na masharti kuwa hakuna kula chochote asubuhi na hakuna kubeba masurufu yoyote yakiwemo maji, ingawa Bwana Adili kwa ujanja wake alibeba.

Safari ilianza asubuhi mapema huku mfalme akiwa na furaha kubwa ya kwenda kuona njaa. Walitembea mwendo wa saa zisizopungua ?ita, mfalme akawa amechoka sana akamwomba Bwana Adili wapumzike. Uchovu huo imageulitokana na ukweli kwamba mfalme hakuwahi kwenda mwendo mrefu kwa miguu. Wakati wa mapumziko mfalme alimwomba Bwana Adili maji na mkate lakini Bwana Adili alimnyima, walipumzika kwa muda wa saa moja na safari ikaendelea. Ilipofika jioni mfalme alikuwa amechoka kabisa kwani mwendo ulikuwa mrefu na njaa ilimuuma mno. Walipumzika chini ya mti, mfalme alimuuliza Bwana Adili, mbona hatufiki safari yetu? Bwana Adili hakumjibu chochote bali alichukua mkate akala na kunywa maji, mfalme alihisi njaa kali, alimwomba Bwana Adili mkate na maji lakini alimnyima.

Hali ya mfalme ilizidi kuwa mbaya sana, ndipo Bwana Adili akamwambia nitakupa maji na mkate ule lakini uahidi kwa maandishi kuwa utaacha dharau na majivuno kwa watu. Mfalme alipiga magoti mbele ya Bwana Adili na kuchukua karatasi na kalamu aliyopewa na Bwana Adili na kuahidi kwa maandishi kuwa ataacha kabisa tabia ya dharau na majivuno. Bwana Adili alipokea maelezo ya mfalme na akampa mkate na maji. Mfalme alipomaliza kula alimshukuru sana, ndipo Bwana Adili alipomgeukia mfalme na kumweleza kuwa hakuna maskani ya njaa bali hali aliyokuwa nayo mtu asipokula chakula. Waliporudi mfalme aliitisha mkutano wa hadhara. aliwaomba radhi wananchi wake na tangu siku hiyo mfalme aliishi kwa upendo na wananchi wote.
