Section B COMPREHENSION (20 marks)

Dele groaned and got out of bed. There was no clock on the mantelpiece and the room was still dark, but he knew he was already late for work, probably by an hour.

He was a commercial bus driver and had to get started as early as 5.00 a.m. and go almost non-stop till about 9.00 p.m. to make the daily returns that the bus owner demanded.

On the previous day, he had attended an all-night party – a late uncle’s burial ceremony – where he had drunk himself almost senseless before crawling home in the early hours of the morning.

Now, he got up shakily, splashed water on his face, and hurried off to work, but not before carefully fastening on his upper left arm the amulet he had always worn for protection against accidents.

A similar amulet hung concealed under the steering column of his bus.

On his way, still feeling groggy, he caught his left toe against a stump and had some misgiving. It was a bad sign, and he was supposed to go back home and then set out again.

But there was no time for that now, so he hurried on. At the bus station, Dele quickly loaded his bus and sped off with none of the checks on the vehicle.

He had to make up for the lost time. It was the rush hour, so it overloaded the bus as it often was, with many passengers hanging on to the doors.

The tyres were threadbare; the brakes were faulty, and the road was wet, but, still feeling a little sleepy, Dele sped on.

Many passengers protested about his reckless driving, but he would not listen. After all, didn’t he have protection against accidents?

As the vehicle took the last turn before its destination, Dele saw a broken-down truck blocking his side of the road.

Under normal circumstances, he could have brought the bus safely to a halt, but the circumstances were far from normal. The careering bus hit the parked vehicle, swerved wildly across the road, and plunged into a ditch.

Dele’s surprise before he sank into oblivion was the failure of his supposedly protective amulets.

(a) Why did Dele wake up late?

(b)… He caught his left toe against a stump and had some misgivings. What does this tell us about Dele?

(c) Give two reasons Dele drove recklessly.

(d) Why was Dele unable to stop his faulty vehicle?

(e) What was Dele’s condition after the accident?

(f) After all, didn’t he have protection against accident? What literary device is used in this expression?

(g)… wildly across the road…

(i) What grammatical name is given to the expression as it is used in the passage?

(ii) What is its function? (h) For each of the following words, find another word or phrase which means the same and can replace it in the passage: I. . probably; ii. returns; iii. groggy; iv. misgiving v.  threadbare vi. reckless.

Section C (SUMMARY) [30 MARKS]

I advise you to spend about 50 minutes in this section. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions in it.

You cannot expect to go through life without meeting problems. Difficulties, perplexities and frustrations are an inevitable part of the human experience.

Accepting this idea of the inevitability of problems will help you approach them in a robust frame of mind rather than thinking that you are a victim especially singled out by malignant fate.

When confronted with a problem, the first thing to do is gather all relevant data to get acquainted with the facts of the case.

Then write exactly what the problem is, stating it simply in black and white. This gives you something definite with which to come to terms. The problem is assessed and you will now have something concrete to deal with.

Next, give serious thought to the problem, making sure that such a thought does not degenerate into worry as worry accomplishes nothing.

Aim at clear, dispassionate thought, viewing the problem as if it were a friend’s and not your own. Look at it from all angles and from the point of view of all concerned.

You court disaster if you are entirely selfish in your outlook. The single important purpose of all this is to discover all possible solutions to the problem.

Having examined the problem broadly and impartially, carefully examine all the solutions or courses of action.

The knowledge that you have done this will keep you from useless regrets later when you can remind yourself that all courses of action were examined and you chose what appeared to be the best.

Next, eliminate all proposed solutions which are seen on further thought to be impracticable.

You now find that it has whittled your list down to two or three possibilities. At this stage, it is often a good plan to get out into the open air. Go for a walk or a ride, preferably somewhere with wide horizons.

There, out in the open, review the problem afresh. You will find it appears less formidable.

Ask yourself how the difficulty will appear in ten years’ time or even one!

This fresh review will enable you to make a final choice as you turn to the remaining solutions and, before you return home, decide which one you are going to adopt.

As you go to sleep that night, let your last thoughts be upon your decision. If, in the morning, you still feel it is the best one to take, go ahead.

If you have a friend who can give sound advice, consult him. Do this before your final decision, so that you will have the benefit of his views before you decide. Talking things over with another is always a great help.

It enables you to isolate the problem and to decide which on which factors are important. Even if the friend offers no advice, a sympathetic ear will help you.

As you describe to your friend the courses open to you, you will see them in clearer light. Some will appear impossible even as you speak.

Alternatively, one will appear most attractive. In dealing with problems, remember the time factor.

Although some problems solve themselves in time and delaying tactics is, therefore, the best form of action for them, most other problems get more complicated the longer they are left.

You should therefore get to grips with the problems immediately they occur.

Reasonable foresight and imagination can prevent many problems from ever arising. Tact, thoughtfulness and responsible conduct can also keep life largely problem-free.

In six sentences, one for each, summarise the steps to be taken when faced with a problem and state why each step is necessary.
