4. List any five techniques of using languages effectively with an example for each technique.   [5]
Answer: Five techniques of using languages effectively with an example are;
a. Use parallel construction: Be consistent in presenting a series of ideas in a sentence. Example: I like businesspersons who are honest, hardworking, reliable, and show philanthropic character, Correct: I like businesspersons who are honest, hard-working, reliable, and philanthropic.
b. Place descriptive words and phrases as close as to the words they modify: It is difficult to find out which words modify which one if they are replaced apart. Example: She has a cell phone that her brother bought for her in the purse. Better: In the purse, she has a cell phone that her brother bought for her.
c. Avoid double negatives in sentences to avoid confusion: Using double negatives creates confusion, so avoid using negative sentences. Example: I am not uninterested in your proposal. Better: I am interested in your proposal.
d. Use active voice: Another technique for using language effectively is to use the active voice. The active voice makes the sentence more direct and engaging, while the passive voice can make it sound distant and unemotional. Example: Instead of saying, "The report was written by the manager," you could say, "The manager wrote the report."
e. Use of metaphors and analogies: Metaphors and analogies can help to clarify complex ideas and make them more accessible to the audience. They are also a powerful way to create images in the audience's mind and make the information more memorable. Example: "The brain is like a computer processor that receives and processes information."

9. Write a paragraph of at least seven sentences and explain how your paragraph is coherent. [7]
10. Read the following paragraph and answer the questions that follows: [6]
       A vexed enemy of mankind, as people have discovered, is not science, but war since science merely reflects the prevailing social forces. It is found that when there is peace, science is conservative, when there is war, and science is prevented to destructive ends. The weapons which science gives do not necessarily cause war, they make war increasingly terrible. Till now. it has brought us to the doorstep of doom. Our main problem, therefore, is not to curb science, but to stop war - to substitute law for force, international government for anarchy in the relations of one nation with another. That is a job in which everybody must participate including the scientists. But the bombing of Hiroshima suddenly woke us up to the fact that we have very little time. The hour is late, and our work has scarcely begun. Now we are face to face with an urgent question ..... *Can education and tolerance, understanding and creative intelligence run fast enough to keep us abreast with our own mounting capacity to destroy?* This is the questions which we shall have to answer one way or the other in our generation. Science must help us in arriving at the answer, but the main decision lies within ourselves.

    ......................for psychologists, its origin can have biological, economic causes.

12. Read the paragraph and edit, as necessary. There are five mistakes in verb form and one mistake in punctuation. [6]
     If people continue to choose to move from small towns into cities for greater opportunities, cities will have to adapt to the changes in their populations. Cities will need to create more affordable housing for new residents. They are need to build schools for their children so that they will study, and parks so that they will play. Transportation and other services will need to be expanded to accommodate larger numbers of people. If the city meets this challenge, people will be able to move to and from their jobs easily. If it does not, people probably earn less money, as they will only be able to accept work that is close to their homes. As cities expand, new neighbourhoods will being created in areas that are now uninhabited. Areas that were once considered suburban will most probably be swallowed up by urban expansion and become part of the city. As new neighbourhoods are established, new businesses will also open to meet the needs of these new residents. With these new businesses are coming new jobs.
