Full Name (Surname First): School: Read the passage below carefully and answer the question that follow by choosing the most appropriate of the options lettered A - EThere were three activities Musa enjoyed so much while growing up. These are the recitation of nursery rhymes, which increased his retentive memory, playing of football, which enhanced his physical fitness and storytelling, which boosted his thinking ability and taught him several moral lessons. Of all these, his favourite was storytelling.His friend, Ibe, on the other hand, liked watching cartoon network and playing violent video games and films. He concentrated more on violent video games. For him, children should play more violent video games because they make a child smart and creative. More so, they bring about quick thinking and fast decision-making.One day, Musa and Ibe met in school during break time and discussed the advantages and disadvantages of those activities they liked. Musa succeeded in discouraging his friend from playing and watching violent video games and films.This was done by telling Ibe a short about Clinton, an American boy who picked a gun and shot his father as a result of what he learned through playing and watching violent video games.His father died and Clinton regretted his action.
