(Total 50 marks) Section A Part I (B1 DB 1 E1) Read the passage below and then answer the questions that follow. It was the rainy season. Pak Harun and his aged parents spent most of the time indoors. Whenever there was rain the coconut trees would sway dangerously. Then one day the wind blew furiously. Lightning flashed across the sky. The thunder that followed was frightening. Suddenly there was a loud cracking sound. Pak Harun looked out. He was horrified to see a coconut tree on the roof of his house. Although the roof was badly damaged, nobody was hurt. Pak Haruns parents, however, were in a state of shock. After half an hour the thunderstorm subsided. All the neighbours who had heard the noise rushed to Pak Haruns house. Is anybody hurt? That was the first question they asked. They were relieved to find all of them safe. We must do something to help them, said one villager. We mustnt delay, said another. They came back with all the necessary tools. They worked hard and tirelessly to remove the tree trunk. When this was done, other men repaired the roof. All of them worked voluntarily.Some of the villagers donated money to buy zinc sheets for the roof. After four days, the repairs were completed. In fact the house looked better and stronger. Pak Harun and the old couple thanked all the villagers for their co-operation and selflessness. 1.Why did Pak Harun and his parents spend most of their time indoors? __________________________________________________________________________ 2.

HELP SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT As towns get more crowded by the day, the land that s used to bury rubbish becomes more and more scarce. Do you know how much rubbish is generated in a year? Take a guess. Malaysia produces 15 000 tonnes of rubbish every day. This is enough to fill the Petronas Twin Towers in just 9.6 days. One way to overcome this problem is to practise the 3Rs Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Here are some tips that will give you an idea of what you can do: a) Use old clothes as rags instead of throwing them away. b) Old bottles can be decorated and used, for instance, as vases. c) Take apart an old clock. Use the pieces to make interesting earrings. d) Give old magazines to your friends. e) Donate old toys to orphanages. f) Always use both sides of sheets of paper. g) Paste a label on an old envelope and write the new recipients name and address over it. h) Instead of throwing away your watch, see if you can get it repaired. i) If you have an item that is still working, do not buy a new one. Think of other ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. Remember-just one person can make a world of difference. 1. This notice aims to _________________________________________________________________ 2.
