Q.1-5. In the following passage from question Nos. 1 to 5, some of the words have been left out. First read the passage over and try to understand what it is about. Then fill in the blanks with the help of the alternatives given. 

According to the author of The Big Necessity: The Unmentionable World of Human Waste and Why the use of toilet paper even matters, we should be using bidets or baby wipes to _____ (1) our behinds. Not only are bidets environmentally more friendly, but they clean our behinds better and reduce our risk of ____ (2) problems down there. 

A gastroenterologist, said regular bidet use has been shown to reduce a person's risk of haemorrhoids. " ____ (3) can be useful with patients who suffer from haemorrhoids since toilet paper can be quite irritating," he said. "Haemorrhoids can be further aggravated due to the friction of toilet paper, so bidets offer a ____ (4) harsh alternative.” Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swellings of enlarged blood vessels inside and around your bottom. In most cases they don't cause any symptoms, but they can cause bleeding, itching, mucus or discharge after going to the toilet. Another potential side ____ (5) of leaving poo behind after your wipe is a urinary tract infection (UTI). Anyone who has ever had one will tell you how painful it is. UTIs happen when the urinary tract becomes infected, usually by bacteria. 

They can cause pain, burning and stinging when weeing, an urgent need to pee, urine that's dark and strong smelling and pain in your lower tummy. But you can't exactly carry a bidet with you at all times, so what's your best option when you are out and about? Baby wipes are a great option for keeping yourself clean, and don't create as much friction as toilet paper so your bum will thank you for it too.
