Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Writing... Do you enjoy it? Most people don't enjoy it. Have you ever wondered why then, do a select few write? These writers are inspired to tell stories. This inspiration comes either from their life experiences or others whom they know. Sometimes it's their own imagination that makes them create wonderful stories. There are other times when writers write to provide information about different topics or to convince their readers about something. Whatever the circumstances, writers have a reason for writing and this is called the ‘writer's purpose'. The most common types of writers' purpose are: to share the excitement of an event, to entertain, to provide information, to influence the reader and to stimulate imagination.
Think about the last time a story made you laugh, cry or tremble with fear. These stories are written with a particular purpose in mind: to entertain the reader. Have you read books like the Chronicles of Narnia or Lord of the Rings? These stories transport you into an entirely different world and encourage you to create vivid images and scenes. Also, as a child you might have read fairy tales and fables. These stories usually have a moral in order to teach values. In addition, there are humorous stories as well as tragedies. Such writing is also known as fiction.
While fiction entertains, non-fiction writing makes you think as it usually has different opinions supported by facts and real-life examples. Non-fiction writers spend a long time researching their subject by reading extensively on it. They may also interview other people to get to know various view points. They do this to ensure that they convey accurate information to the reader.
Examples of this type of writing are news articles, encyclopaedia entries, biographies, diaries, scientific papers and histories. Writers also write to persuade their audience about something. These texts use specific techniques to make the reader aware of a subject and then care about it by thinking about it in a certain way. Examples of this are letters to the editor, discursive and argumentative essays or persuasive speeches. So, the next time you read a text, story or article, see if you can identify the writer's purpose.

Which of these is not mentioned in the text as a source of inspiration for writers?

AFriends, family and acquaintances
BTheir own creative intellect
CTheir own lives
DPersuasive speeches

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
The Emperor Penguin is the worlds largest and tallest penguin. It is also the heaviest penguin, with some individuals recorded at nearly 100 pounds. Adults have a black head, back, tail, and black wings. The under parts are dingy white. The sides of the neck are marked with a large golden or yellow stripe.
Emperor Penguins eat crustaceans, krill, and small fish. Emperor Penguins will dive to depths of 800 feet in search of food. Most dives last 3-6 minutes.
The Emperor Penguin is found throughout the Antarctic perimeter. It is the only species of penguin to breed during the Antarctic winter. Female Emperor Penguins lay a single egg in May or June. After the egg has been laid, the female must immediately feed in the ocean. First, the egg is carefully transported to the male, who incubates the egg under a brood patch that rests above the feet. Occasionally, the transfer is unsuccessful and the egg rolls onto the ice and instantaneously freezes.
The male will incubate the egg for up to 65 days! During this time, he will not eat a single meal. On particularly cold days, hun-dreds of male penguins may gather together in a compact huddle to warm themselves in the pounding Antarctic winds. In about two months, the female returns and locates her mate and chick by sound. she regurgitates (throws up) the food stored in her stomach to feed the growing chick. The male then takes his turn feeding in the ocean and returns after about a month, at which point both parents tend to the chick by bringing food and keeping it off the ice. Once the chick is about seven weeks old, it joins other chicks in a creche (huddle) to keep warm.
Who takes care of the egg first?

AThe female
BThe male
COnly 'A'
DBoth 'A' and 'B'


How there is a difference between option 'A' and option 'C' ? as option C says only A while option A also indirectly says the same
