Write a composition (350-400 words) on any of the following: (25) a) What are the problems affecting transportation in your town or city?

Your composition may be about the subject of the picture or you may take suggestions from it; however, there must be a clear connection between the picture and your composition. Question 2 (Do Not spend more than 20 minutes on this question) (10) Select ONE of the following: a) Write a letter to the editor of an English language newspaper highlighting the problem of noise pollution around your school. Identify the causes, and offer solutions. b) Write a letter to your friend who has moved to a different city telling her or him how much you miss them. Question 3 Read carefully the passage given below and answer the questions (a), (b) and (c) that follow. Once during my lunch break I witnessed an extraordinary comedy that was performed, I felt, for my special benefit. On the tree-trunk where I was sitting, not six feet away, out of a tangle of thick undergrowth, up over the bark of the trunk, there glided slowly and laboriously and very regally a giant landsnail, the size of an apple. I watched it as I ate, fascinated by the way the snail s body glided over the bark, apparently without any muscular effort whatever, and the way its horns with the round, rather surprised eyes on top, twisted this way and that as it picked its route through the miniature landscape of toadstools and moss. Suddenly I realized that as the snail was making its slow and rather vague progress along the trunk it was leaving behind it the usual glistening trail, and this trail was being followed by one of the most ferocious and bloodthirsty animals, for its size, to be found in the West African forest.
