1. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. [5x3=15]

There is quite a debate on whether or not computers have positively affected education. Some proponents of computers in school argue the fact that computers are vast in the supply of resources as well as the fact that computers dominate society and will continue to do so. Opponents of computers in education take the position of experiencing things actually, and not just on a computer screen, a reality versus virtual reality argument. In addition, there is the aspect of time involved with using a computer as opposed to interaction with actual living things. Computers have in many ways enhanced education but it has also weakened other skills taught in school as well.
The first skill lost is obvious with the use of the word processing programmes today. Of course they are convenient for typing papers because of the neatness and uniformity they provide as opposed to hand writing.
