Reading : Read the paragraph carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Millions of people around the world today are undernourished or nutritionally

deficient. The reason is because there is a grave shortage of food.
Young children are mostly the victims of malnutrition followed by pregnant and
nursing mothers. And in most cases, also the girls are less fed than boys. Most victims
of malnutrition are found in rural areas. It is not surprising because most poor people
are found in rural areas.
The problem of money as the concomitant cause of malnutrition is often
aggravated by poor nutritional practices. Thus in a way, the problem of malnutrition is
not caused by poverty but by ignorance. Some mothers for example prefer to give milk
formulas to their babies instead of breastfeeding them.
Thus, nutrition education is one instrument in solving the malnutrition problem.
In this regard, the education for the girls is a most pressing need if only to eradicate the
pernicious beliefs about the way food is distributed within the family.
