Question

In the following passage, the numbered gaps indicate missing words. Against each number in the list below each passage, five choices are offered A to E. For each question, choose the word that is the most suitable to fill the numbered gap in the passage.

A nation that wants to -76- her citizens cannot rely on traditional methods of -77- but a large scale -78- Rather than depend on simple -79- like the hoe and the cutlass, it is high time we thought in terms of -80- . Large areas of -81- land must be open up, and aid must be given to young farmers to acquire their own -82-. The effort must start from schools, where students need to be taught both -83- of crops as well as animal -84-. To make land available to more people, the land -85- practices in most parts of the nation need to be revised. Above all, -86- should be generated through loans with reasonable -87- rates.

The -88- to have children is deep rooted in the hearts of both men and women, and on entering into -89- union they regard the -90- of children as the first and most -91- duty. A childless marriage in an African -92- is practically a failure, for children bring joy not only to their parents but also to the -93- as a whole. The -94- of a family brings with it a rise in social -95-. The social position of a -96- who has children is of greater importance and dignity than that of a bachelor or -97-. After the -98- of the first child, the married -99- becomes the object of higher -100- among their fellows than they were before.
