Read the passage and answer the question.

1. Daniel and Yvonne were twins. As they were boy and girl they were not identical, but they did look very similar. They both had dark hair, dark eyes and little dimples in their cheeks. When they were very small, you could not tell them apart. However, as they grew older, Yvonne's fringe grew lighter in colour and it was easier to tell them apart. Daniel had a small mole, just below his eye, and Yvonne did not. This was a good way to distinguish between them if they were both wearing hats!
2. Not only did they look similar, but they also liked similar things. When they went to school, they both loved playing cricket and they were both quite good at it too. Many of their friends thought Yvonne was definitely a better bowler than her brother, but they would never tell them this as the twins always had a strong onfield rivalry. If they had told Yvonne that she was better, she would have boasted. If they had told Daniel that Yvonne was better, he would have tried to catch her out and force her to make mistakes.
3. Generally, Daniel and Yvonne would always be on the same team. However, one day, Daniel and Yvonne were put on separate teams and had to compete against each other. Their friends worried that the two might fall out when one sibling's team inevitably beat the others. However, while they played they completely ignored each other's existence. The problem was that both played really strangely. It appeared that if they were not on the same team, they could not play to the best of their abilities. This is something that caused issues as they grew older, and they wanted to be considered for the school cricket teams. At school there was a boys' team, and a girls' team, but no mixed team. When they were not in the same team, Daniel and Yvonne could not play well enough and neither of them even made it through the try-outs for the school teams.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Scientists in Iceland and Denmark confirm existence of a narwhal-beluga hybrid whale (narluga - a mash up of both names together) through tests on a 30-year-old skull. The skull was originally found by a hunter in Greenland and stored at the Natural History Museum of Denmark.
In a 1993 study, researchers at the Society of Marine Mammalogy thought the skull belonged to a hybrid whale because of its unusual teeth and size. Narwhals have only one or rarely two long spiraling tusks whereas belugas can have up to 40 pointed teeth in straight rows. The hybrid skull had a mix of both - a set of long, spiraling and pointy teeth. It was also larger in size than a narwhal or a beluga skull. But at the time, lack of DNA knowledge kept the skull's owner in the dark, until recently, when a new study was published in Scientific Reports that finally uncovered the truth.
The findings proved it belonged to a hybrid offspring with a narwhal for its mother and a beluga for its father. "Even with the absence of a tusk and different mating systems, successful mating can still occur between a male beluga and a female narwhal," the study said. Normally, scientists have a hard time observing both narwhals and belugas during their mating season (late winter to late spring). However, there are a few places where there is enough population of both marine animals. Disko Bay, where the skull was discovered, is one of them. Scientists believe this skull might be the only evidence that proves narlugas exist.
They used powdered bone samples from 18 narwhals and 18 belugas skulls and compared the skull to the DNA found from eight narwhals and eight belugas from Greenland. And voila! A 30-yearold skull's story makes way for a new scientific discovery.
This is not the only mix of species that has happened, but it is the first-time cross breeding has been proved in marine life. One reason for this is the fact that the evidence is so difficult to find and often when it is, it is found by hunters who destroy it.

Scientists think the skull may be ______.

Afake
Bunique
Ca juvenile
Done of many

Read the following stories and poetry and answer the questions choosing the most appropriate option :
King Metabo
King Metabo was a famous javelin thrower. One day he went out hunting with his daughter, Camille on his back.
of a sudden, the king was attacked by a band of enemies. He had to flee from them until he came to a fast flowing river, which he was unable to swim across because of his daughter on his back. It seemed as if he was lost until he thought of a way out.
Tying his daughter to his javelin, he hurled it with all his strength to the other side of the river; then he dived in himself and swam across to where Camille was. His enemies were so amazed that they gave up the chase.
How did little Camille cross the river?

A She crossed the river with her own efforts.
B The king tied her to his javelin and hurled it to the other side of the river.
C The king tied her on his back and crossed the river.
D None of the above.


Good story
