6. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow: [5x2=10]

Research shows that the children who have a parent who smokes are more likely to smoke and to be heavier smokes at young ages. When parents quit smoking, their children become less likely to start smoking and more likely to quit if they have already started smoking.

If you smoke, share your struggles to quit with your children. Kids greatly underestimate how difficult it is to quit smoking. Showing how hard it is to quit (and making sure quitting doesn't look easy) can help eliminate this misperception. Continuing to try to quit, despite the difficulties, also sends a strong anti-smoking message.

A smoke free home makes children less likely to smoke, even if their parents smoke. By not allowing anyone to smoke in their homes, parents not only make smoking less convenient for their kids but also make a powerful statement that they believe smoking is undesirable. Parental attitudes, opinions, and feelings about their kids' smoking status greatly influence whether or not kids will smoke, even when the parents smoke.

Questions:
a. What are the circumstances in which children are less likely to start smoking?
b. What do the kids normally underestimate?
c. What does a smoke-free home help children? 
d. What message does a smoke free home give the kids?
e. Summarise the passage in a sentence or two.
Answer:
a. The circumstances in which children are less likely to start smoking are:
- a smoke free home,
- sending a strong anti-smoking message.
b. The kids normally underestimate to quit smoking.
c. A smoke free home helps children less likely to smoke by not allowing anyone to smoke in their home even their parents smoke.
d. Parents from smoke free home make smoking less convenient for their kids and make them believe smoking is undesirable.
7. Answer any two of the following questions. [2x10=20]
a. Describe a big public event that you attended as an important person. Explain what it was like and what made the event memorable.
b. Write an article on "good and bad effect of watching TV frequently, especially for the children and college goers".
c. You are a student. Write a letter to your parents describing your study in new accommodation. (Write XYZ in place of address and signature)
