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
