PASSAGE-1 

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said: For cutting the grass: $5.00, for cleaning up my room this week: $1.00 

For going to the store for you: $.50 Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25 

Taking out the garbage: $1.00 For getting a good report card: $5.00 For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00 Total owed: $14.75. Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote: For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: 

No Charge For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: 

No Charge For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years: 

No Charge For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead: 

No Charge For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose: 

No Charge Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is: 

No Charge. When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, “Mom, I sure do love you.” And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL”.

PASSAGE-2 

In Rio, Kenya secured 13 medals—six gold, six silver and one bronze—making it the 15th highest-ranking country. But the sweetness of victory was tainted by Kenya’s national Olympic committee’s spectacular mismanagement, which highlighted the growing menace of corruption not just in the country’s sports, but in the country “at large”. 

The Kenyan Olympic team’s journey to Rio was troubled by issues from the beginning. Firstly, Kenya was nearly banned from participating in the Games after the World Anti-Doping Agency declared the country non-compliant. After missing two deadlines to prove it was tackling the doping problem, Kenya amended its anti-doping laws and secured its spot in the Games. 

Despite the false start, Kenyan athletes were primed to compete in Rio. Then they encountered more mishaps. The javelin star, Julius Yego, who taught himself the sport from YouTube, arrived at the airport and found that he didn’t have a ticket. If the incompetence and poor planning weren’t bad enough, there was also the misappropriation of funds—a hallmark of Kenyan corruption. 

Hundreds of hangers-on joined the Olympic delegation, reportedly for little reason beyond a free trip to Brazil. At the opening ceremony, Kenya’s team came out in mismatched outfits, raising eyebrows and questions. 

Q.6. In Kenya there was also the misappropriation of- 

A. Players 

B. Managers 

C. Medal 

D. Funds 

Q.7. How many medals did Kenya secure In Rio Olympics? 

A. 11 medals 

B. 23 medals 

C. 13 medals 

D. 33 medals 

Q.8. What is the meaning of the expression “at large”? 

A. Finally 

B. Generally 

C. Customary 

D. Adversary 

Q.9. The World Anti-Doping Agency declared the country- 

A. Nonchalant 

B. Nonpareil 

C. Non-compliant 

D. Nonplussed 

Q.10. After missing how many deadlines Kenya amended its anti-doping laws? 

A. Three deadlines 

B. Five deadlines 

C. Four deadlines 

D. Two deadlines
