Kimchi, the reddish fermented cabbage is served at every meal. It has


kept obesity at bay in Korea as it is high in fibre and low in fat. It is
also loaded with vitamins A, B, and C but its biggest benefit may be in
its "healthy bacteria" called lactobacilli, found in fermented foods like
kimchi and yogurt. These good bacteria help with digestion. Some
studies show fermented cabbage has compounds that may prevent the
growth of cancer.

1 From the statement above, we can conclude that kimchi


A disrupts digestion.
B produces bacteria.
C promotes weight-loss.
D enhances growth of cancer.

Questions 26-31 are based on the following passage.

1 By the age of seven, I was used to being top of my class. I was the one who would
help other pupils who had difficulties. “Malala is a genius girl” my class fellows
would say. I was also known for participating in everything – badminton, drama,
cricket, art, even singing, though I wasn‟t much good.

2 Around that time, we moved away from where we had been living to an area 5
where I didn‟t have any friends. On our new road, there was a girl called Safina
who was a bit younger than me and we started to play together. She was a
pampered girl who had lots of dolls and a shoebox full of jewellery. But she kept
eyeing up the pink plastic pretend mobile phone my father had bought me which
was one of the only toys I had. My father was always talking on his mobile so I 10
loved to copy him and pretend to make calls on mine. One day, it disappeared.

3 A few days later, I saw Safina playing a phone exactly the same as mine. “Where
did you get that?” I asked. “I bought it in the bazaar,” she said. I realized now she
could have been telling the truth but back then I thought she is doing this to me
and I will do the same to her. 15

4 I used to go to her house to study, so whenever I was there, I would pocket her
things, mostly toy jewellery like earrings and necklaces. It was easy. At first
stealing gave me a thrill but that did not last long. Soon, it became a compulsion. I
did not know how to stop.

5 One afternoon, I came home from school and rushed into the kitchen as usual for 20
a snack. “Hello, Bhabi!” I called. “I‟m starving!” There was a silence. My mother
was sitting on the floor pounding spices, brightly coloured turmeric and cumin,
filling the air with their aroma. Over and over she pounded. Her eyes would not
meet mine. What had I done? I was very sad and went to my room. When I
opened my cupboard, I saw that all the things I had taken were gone. I had been 25
caught.

6 My cousin Reena came into my room. “They knew you were stealing,” she said.
“They were waiting for you to come clean, but you just kept on.” I felt a terrible
sinking feeling in my stomach. I walked back to my mother with my head bowed.
“What you did was wrong Malala,” she said. “Are you trying to bring shame on us 30
that we can‟t afford to buy such things?”

7 “It‟s not true!” I lied. “I didn‟t take them.” But she knew I had. “Safina started it,” I
protested. “She took the pink phone that Aba bought me.”

8 My mother was unmoved. “Safina is younger than you and you should have taught
her better,” she said. “You should have set an example.” I started crying. “Don‟t tell 35
Aba,” I begged. I apologized over and over again. I couldn‟t bear for him to be
disappointed in me. It‟s horrible to feel unworthy in the eyes of your parents.

9 My mother took me to say sorry to Safina and her parents. It was very hard. Safina
said nothing about my phone, which didn‟t seem fair, but I didn‟t mention it either.

SULIT 12 1119/2

Since that day, I have never lied or stolen. Not a single lie nor a single penny, not 40
even the coins my father leaves around the house, which we‟re allowed to buy
snacks with. I have also stopped wearing jewellery because I asked myself,” What
are these baubles which tempt me? Why should I lose my character for a few
metal trinkets?” But I still feel guilty and to this day I say sorry to God in my
prayers. 45

10 Aba soon found out why I was so sad. I could see in his eyes that I had failed him.
However, he told me that great heroes also made mistakes when they were
children. His words calmed me.

The Living Photograph

My small grandmother is tall there,


straight-back, white broderie anglaise shirt,
pleated skirt, flat shoes, grey bun,
a kind, old smile round her eyes.
Her big hand holds mine,
White hand in black hand.
Her sharp blue eyes look her own death in the eye.

It was true after all; that look.


My tall grandmother became small.
Her back round and hunched.
Her soup forgot to boil.
She went to the awful place grandmothers go.
Somewhere unknown, unthinkable.

But there she is still,


in the photo with me at three,
the crinkled smile is still living, breathing.
