Jeremy was getting ready for his birthday party. He was turning fifteen. He put on (19) his new pair of jeans and a polo shirt. Then he looked at himself in the mirror and smiled. Feeling great, he went downstairs to wait for his friends to show up (20). The table was all set with mouth-watering dishes. His father even came home with a huge birthday cake. After an hour, his mother became curious when none of his friends turned up. Suddenly he realised that he had not invited them so he had to call off (21) the party. However, the food did not go to waste as he decided to share it with the orphans at the 'House of Love'. It turned out to be the most meaningful birthday in his life.

Questions 29 - 34 are based on the following passage.

In today's society, it's not surprising to see children holed up in their homes. In fact, the sight of children engaging in outdoor sporting activities is becoming increasingly uncommon.
We need to ask ourselves whether we are denying our children the option of

being outdoors because we feel that we are unable to control the situation. There are measures that parents can take to ensure that their children can still have their fair share of outdoor playtime. It is widely acknowledged that sports can greatly assist the physical and mental development of a child. It also nurtures a healthy lifestyle. What parents can do is to ensure a chaperone or supervisor at all times and that children are playing in bright and well-kept parks. Additionally, parents can send their children for sporting activities at school fields where teachers are present to supervise them. The main goal is to ensure that our children are not deprived of the joys of outdoor playtime as this represents a very important aspect of their childhood as well. Adapted from New Straits Times, April 17, 2009
