Read the passage below carefully and then answer, in your own words as far as possible, the questions on it.

It happens on the streets of many cities in Africa. A shabbily dressed man clutching a purse or a

money belt, races through crowd of startled pedestrians. An enraged mob follows hard on his

heels, screaming, “Catch him! Kill him!!, Kill the Thief!!! They trap the man in an alley and

begin kicking and punching him, if he is lucky, the police will come to his rescue. But more

often than not, the thief is beaten to death or burned alive.

Although mob justice is a common phenomenon in Sub-Sahara Africa, there are fewer countries

that experience it with such regularity or such brutality than Kenya. There between nine and

eleven people, most of them petty thieves are executed every week across the country. That

number is rapidly growing. In 1992, 432 people were murdered by mob; in 1994, the figure rose

to more than 500. They are put to painful death, stabbed, slashed with matches, stoned, kicked or

trampled upon

Some psychologists generally ascribe the resort to violence to the exposure to violence and

instant justice on the screen, but in Africa, much of the street justice is a reaction to the

ineffectual criminal justice system. Not only do the police lack essential equipment like radios

and vehicles to carry out their work efficiently and quickly; they are so poorly paid that they

demand and readily receive bribes from criminals. Even when cases end up in court, it takes too

long a time for judgement to be handed down.

And it certainly exasperates many a layman when a thief caught in the act is set free to walk

away from the court with his booty. No wonder many have now accepted mob justice as the only

effective way to punish thieves.

Critics also say the vigilantes, who usually dispense justice in the streets take their cue from

politician, particularly those in power, Government-sponsored thugs are often accused of burning

homes and beating up members of the opposition in full view of the police. In an African

country, the secretary-general of a political party warned that his opponent would receive another

beating if they dared visit his home constituency again; and other officials openly supported the

assault. Wherever politics remains steeped in violence, citizens seem likely to follow suit.

It is a very sad reflection on African countries that such developments stand in the way of their

march to democracy. Many African politicians regard being in government not as an opportunity

to serve their country but as a means of making a Tor pine and living well

Hence, they regard opponents as enemies who must he crushed by any means possible, Some

men, however, know that violence begets more violence, unleashing chaos and undermining the

rule of law. No matter how inadequate a country’s institutions, there can be no justification for

violence and, in particular, mob justice.

SUMMARY

Read the passage below carefully and answer the questions that follow it.

When Pierre and MarieCurie were jointly awarded half the NobelPrize for Physics in 1903 (the other half going to Henri Becquerel), it was the crowning glory of achievement for Madame Curie, the result of long years of hoping, awaiting, and working under almost impossible conditions.

As Marie Sklodowska had enrolled as a student at the Sorbonne’s faculty of science, and within two years she had distinguished herself by her brains and her application. She became skilled in handling instruments and familiar with the exactness needed for scientific experiment. Her professor began to entrust her with researches of greater importance, which gave her the opportunity to show the skill and originality of her mind.

It was in her third year, while looking for laboratory space to do some special research entrusted to her, that she met Pierre curie. Pierre too was a physicist, a brilliant scientist who had got his master’s degree in science at the age of eighteen. When Marie met him he was already an established lecturer and researcher. The meeting was the beginning of one of the finest partnerships that ever united man and woman.

Marie became MadameCurie, but it never even occurred to her to give up her pursuit of science for family life. With characteristic determination she resolved to perform her duties as wife, mother, and scientist equally creditably. She sat and passed her fellowship examinations, kept house, continued with scientific research, and looked after first one, then a second, little daughter.

For her doctorate, Marie decided to study radioactivity. Very little was known about this besides the recent observation of Henry Becquerel, a chemist that the rare metal uranium gave off rays of an unknown nature, Starting off with experiments on the uranium rays,

MadameCurie went on to establish that some of this ‘radioactivity’ – a name she invented- was coming not from the uranium itself but from other unknown elements mixed with it. Her husband, who had watched the experiments with interest and often helped her with advice, now put aside his own research work to provide her with the collaborator she needed in the search for elusive substances. They soon discovered a new metal which they named polonium after Marie’s native Poland, and some months later discovered radium.

For four years they had to work in a miserable shed, with an earth floor and a leaking roof, spending hour after endless hour trying to obtain an extraction of pure radium in order to study its properties. Neither repeated disappointment, nor the failing of her health from overwork, nor the problem of how to obtain the expensive ore needed for their experiments could discourage Marie.

By the time she had obtained pure radium chloride in 1902 it was already known to the world that the new substance could be wonderfully useful. In the field of medicine, especially, it was found useful for the treatment of certain hitherto incurable diseases. Now was the time for Marie and Pierre to reap worldlywealth as a reward for their years of labour, if they had chosen to commercialise the secrets of the production of radium. But Marie and Pierre thought this would be against the scientific spirit, and so they published their findings without claiming any financial benefit, giving the world one of the most powerful substances known to modern science.

PARTS OF SPEECH

Identify the parts of speech of the underlined words in the passage below.

Somewhere at the beginning, and at strategic points in your speech, you should introduce flavour

into what you are saying. You would not want to serve tea without sugar after all. So, you should

inject some humorous remarks once a while. But this calls for skill. To start with, you cannot

introduce humour indiscriminately; otherwise, you might sound like a jester. Experienced speakers

most often introduce humourearly in their speeches, presumably to ease the tension in the hall.

But these jokes must be brief, purposeful and closely related to the point. Many speakers are

scared by the countenances of the listeners. Not all their looks are friendly. However, there are

bound to be a few friendly ones, and it is advisable to pick them out, look at them from time to

time, and ignore the hostile ones. Looking at the friendly faces keeps you at ease.

You are advised to write out your speech in full after which you should read it several times

before the day. You could get a wailing listener to criticize your delivery. Do this several times

until you can almost recite it. Note that we are not advising you to memorize it, because you

could forget vital areas due to anxiety. Writing out and practising the speech would make you

much familiar with the content, indeed with every word

Read the passage below carefully and then answer, in your own words as far as possible, the questions on it

Groundnut oil is used for eating. After it has been taken out of the nuts the oil is treated in

different ways to make it very fine and pure. It is changed from a dark yellow colour to nearly

white. The nutty taste and smell are taken away. This is so that it can be used with other foods

without making them taste different

British people eat the groundnut oil in three-well-known foods- margarine, ice-cream and fish

and chips.

Groundnut oil for margarine is sent by barge from the Erith factory to another factory on the

other side of the river Thames. Here it is mixed with other oils and with milk, and is made hard

and solid. This makes it into a yellow fat like butter, You can buy margarine in tins in some

shops in Nigeria, British people use a lot of margarine. They mix with flour and sugar to make

cakes, biscuits and puddings, or they spread it on bread.

Groundnut oil is also sent to ice-cream factories. Here it is mixed with sugar and four and milk

and cooked. Then it is frozen, of made as ice Have you ever felt ice? In Nigeria it is not easy to

Find You may be able to see some in a refrigerator, in a food shop in a big town. In many parts

of the world, people, particularly children, eat ice-cream on hot summer days, In Britain, ice-

cream traders put special refrigerators in vans and drive them along the streets. Every now and

again they stop and ring a bell, which makes the children run out of their houses to buy some ice-

cream, if they have any money!

Some of the oil is sold in big barrels and tins to shops which sell fried fish and fried potatoes.

Fried potatoes are generally called ‘chips’, Many people in Britain like fish and chips as a meal

and there are fish and chip shops in every town

The cake’ that is left when the oil is taken out of the nuts is sold to makers of animal feeding

stuffs. “Cakes’ from several different kinds of seeds are mixed together. The mixture made for

hens is different from the mixture made for cows and other different mixtures are made for pigs,

sheep and other animals. British farmers give these foods to their animals to make them grow fat

and strong quickly.

QUESTIONS

  1. In two sentences for each, state the two main substances for groundnut
  2. In two sentences for each, state any two uses of groundnut oil
