PART C. READING (3.0 points)

I. Read the text below and answer the questions. Write your answers in the spaces provided (you can give short but enough information answers). (1.2p)

I had been chosen by my teacher to attend a leadership training course which would be held at the Girls’ Brigade campsite. As I stepped into the campsite at Sembawang, I saw the ropes that were fastened from tree to tree and some structures built for climbing. “I hope I don’t have to climb up all those trees,” I said to myself. I suffered from acrophobia.

After Debbie and I had settled into our dormitory, we went for the briefing. The camp commandant told us that we need not worry about climbing the awesome structures as she and the other officers were there to help us. “To be a good leader, you must lead by example and be brave,” the commandant said.

The day came when all of us had to climb up the structures. “This is the moment of my life,” I told myself. It was a sunny afternoon as I stood under the tree and told myself I would be able to do it.

Debbie was among the brave ones who volunteered to climb up the man-made ladder to the top of the tree where the ropes were. The task was to walk across to the middle of the ropes supported by the two trees and jump down. Although we had support ropes around our bodies, I was still afraid and tried very hard to overcome my fear of heights.

My heart pumped so hard while waiting for my turn. When it was finally my turn, I climbed up the ladder with legs shaking. The higher I climbed, the faster my heart beat. Finally, I reached the top and took a deep breath. “Phew, that was easy,” I told myself. Then I looked down. “I think I am going to faint,” I thought.

I could not think for the next few seconds. I shook my head and asked myself, “How am I going to show the people in the Girls’ Brigade that I am a good leader if I have no courage?”

From the top of the tree, I could see the entire campsite as well as the officiers and the other participants. I hummed a tune. Then I held on top the ropes tightly and began to move one step at a time towards the centre. I was enjoying the view around me. “This is fun after all!” I thought.

Then I heard cheers and claps from below. I realized that I had made it to the centre. I closed my eyes and jumped. I landed on the ground swiftly. It felt good to be on the ground again although my legs were still shaking. At the same time, there was a feeling of triumph.

The Sahara’s meager resources are being plundered right to the present day. This is shown most clearly in the dramatic fall in the region’s precious water reserves. The rock is of a type which hinders easy underground storage so the water supply depends on rainfall. (0       B      . However, the seriousness of the situation goes far beyond mere seasonal changes.

There’s one district where observations go back at least 125 years. Here it is known that wells of the balance beam type were once used in cultivated areas.

(1) ______. They have all been replaced by wells from which the water has to be raised by draught animals, because it is now 25 metres down. (2) ______.
