English SSC board exam


Q.1. (B) Read the following passage and answer the questions given below :
T
hat Monday at school, Keryn sat with her chin propped up on one hand. "You're looking very thoughtful today, Keryn," said her teacher, Mrs.Ngeru. As soon as she got home, Keryn hurried to her bedroom mirror. The spot was bigger. She could see it even when she stood right back from her mirror, against her bedroom wall.
She took a book, curled up on the corner of the living room sofa, and tried to forget about her chin. She was still reading when her father came home from work half an hour later. "That's a nice little spot you've found there, love," he said. Keryn jumped up and slammed into her room. "What's the matter? What did I say?" She heard her father asking behind her.
At dinner that night, Keryn said she didn't want any lemon meringue, thank you. She'd just have a raw carrot instead. "You want to be careful of those raw carrots," Jason told Keryn while he ate her share of the lemon meringue. "They might be good for your skin, but they make your top teeth grow, and your ears get all long floppy,"
On Tuesday morning, Keryn got out of bed, washed her whole face hard with warm soapy water, and then looked in the mirror. The spot on her chin was even bigger than it had been the night before. "I'll never get rid of this spot before Thursday afternoon's prizegiving!" She wailed at breakfast time. "Isn't there anything I can do?" "You could try plastic surgery," suggested Jason, "or a flamethrower."
