Read the short story and answer the questions that follow.
MYSTERIOS STRANGER

My name is Oliver and I live in a small beach town. The town is famous for its huge fishing nets and many tourists come to see the nets every year.
One day I saw a boy. He really did look like a tourist, with a small camera in one hand and a bottle of water in the other. The slim boy sat on the bench by the tree, sipping water and pretending to look at a glossy cruise brochure. His thick glasses masked his eyes, but I knew he wasn’t looking at the brochure. He hadn’t turned a page for the last ten minutes.
As I walked up to him to say hi, he looked at me briefly and pretended that his parents were calling him and walked away. I tried not to stare at the tiny scar just above his left eyebrow. I walked back to where I was sitting under the tree shaking my head. He looked familiar, but I couldn’t quite place him.
Then it hit me. The bicycle accident. The mysterious stranger who helped me get up and park my bicycle on the side of the road. I rushed back to the bench but he was gone. I sat on the bench and saw the water bottle along with a card left on the bench. The card said:
I am deeply indebted to you. The evening of your bicycle accident, I was looking for my parents as I had lost them in the crowd. Helping you made me stay in the same spot for sometime and because of that my parents spotted me. We are going back to our home today. Hope you are better now. Thank you. Rajan.
I felt glad that my little accident brought a family together again. I said a silent prayer for him and got back home, smiling.
The boy had a mark on his skin on his ______.

Ahand
Bforehead
Cear
Deyelid


But, the scar was above the eyebrow, basically on the forehead, more accurately, the temple. Can the answer please be explained, for I cannot understand where I'm going wrong.Thanks.

Read the passage and answer the question that follow.

Some virus experts might not consider viruses to be alive. Yet viruses can reproduce. To do so, they hijack the cells of a host. They borrow the "machinery" in the host's cells to copy the virus' genetic code. Those host cells may spit out hundreds or thousands - even millions - of copies of the original virus. These new viruses then go on to infect more cells. Maybe the host will also sneeze out the viruses or otherwise release some to infect other potential hosts. And those hosts might be anything from people or plants to bacteria.
But each time a virus is copied, there's some risk the host's cell will make one or more errors in the genetic code of that virus. These are known as mutations. Each new one alters the genetic blueprint of the virus a bit. Mutant viruses are known as variants of the original.
Many mutations won't affect how a virus works. Some might be bad for the virus. Others might improve how well the virus can infect a cell, or help the virus evade its host's immune system. A mutation might even allow the virus to resist the effects of some therapy. Scientists refer to such new-and-improved variants as strains.
And although coronavirus variants made news throughout much of the COVID-19 pandemic, any virus runs the risk of spawning new variants through mutation.
Indeed, mutations are one basis of evolution. Mutationsthat don't benefit an organism (or virus), often die out. But those that make an organism more fit - better adapted to its environment - tend to become more dominant.
Scientists refer to some new versions of the coronavirus as "variants of concern". Compared to the original virus, these variants might infect or spread between people more easily, respond less well to treatments or impair how well vaccines work against the virus. A more serious class of viruses are so-called "variants of high consequence".
Treatments or precautions work far less well against these viruses than they had against earlier forms of the virus. For instance, the new variants might resist current vaccines. They may not show up well in current tests. They might even ause more severe disease.
