JSS1: English 2nd Term Questions – Comprehension

Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Passage

As the boys were playing, two young boys have set us an example of honesty. They found nearly a million naira in a rubbish bag and returned it to its rightful owner.

The two young boys were playing near a rubbish dump when they found a black plastic bag which they thought might make a good football. But when they kicked it, it was too hard.

“It hurt my foot, so we opened it to see what was inside, it was stuffed with money”, said one of the boys, aged 9.

They called their elder brother for advice. He suggested giving it to a local politician who was in the area.

Finally, the money was taken to the police station, where the DPO announced on the local Radio station about the missing but found money, but no one could describe the amount in the bag.

Eventually, one man did manage to convince the authorities that the N500,000 (Five hundred thousand naira) was his. His sister had thrown the bag away when she was cleaning under his bed.

“I didn’t know there was money in the bins when I emptied them,” she said. After receiving his money, the owner gave the young boys N50,000 naira each.

We need courage honesty in our young people if we are to defeat the curse of corruption in our society said one elder.
