Question

In the following passage the numbered gaps indicate missing words. Against each number in the below each passage, four options are offered in columns lettered A to D. choose the word that is the most suitable to fill the numbered gap in the passage.

Jide bought his car last year and now there is the need to renew the -76-. The first time he went to Mr. Olumide, the -77-, he was advised to -78- a -79- rather than a -80- cover. Mr. Olumide had carefully explained the merits and demerits of both types, which included the fact that one was far more -81- than the other.

Now Jide has cause to smile because of his entitlement to a no-claim -82- Being a careful owner-driver, he had not been involved in any -83- during the period. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for his friend, Jackson, whose car was a total -84- after a -85- with a truck. He could not even make any claim for -86-, because he was not -87- at all Jackson's experience clearly points to the need for insurance -88- to educate prospective -89- on the benefits of insurance.

The persistent fuel -90- in the country paralysed all aspects of life especially in the cities. The streets were often -91- of the usual hustle and -92- that characterized city life. A visitor might erroneously think it was a public holiday, until he came near a -93-. There he would find long -94- of haphazardly parked vehicles waiting to buy the non-existent fuel from the idle -95-.

Another look at the bus stops would reveal groups of people anxiously trying to get to their places of work. Even car owners used the few -96- buses, the drivers of which had increased the -97- by anything from 100 to 500 percent.>

Though this could be very annoying, -98- should not blame the drivers for the -99- rates because the drivers had to pay through the nose to procure fuel at the -100-.
