BELOW IS A SAMPLE FOR KCSE ENGLISH PAPER TWO QUESTION PAPER

1. COMPREHENSION (20 Marks)

Read the passage below and then answer the questions that follow.

1.

Over the years man has cultivated to exhaustion the better in the plains. This has led to progressive destruction of land to the point where some of the steeper hill slopes are cultivated so that widespread erosion has been initiated. Meanwhile, the livestock are continuously being forced on to smaller areas of the poorer land and further up the hill slopes where they have to compete with foresters. As a result, the quantities of animal proteins, so necessary to human health, have steadily declined. Surprisingly, instead of accepting the responsibility for all this destruction, man blames livestock and in particular goat.

Man has repeatedly failed to do anything to restore the fertility of soils he has ravaged. After the last miserable crop has been harvested, the land has been left to weeds. No attempt has been made to plant grass or under-plant the last agricultural crop with fodder species. Had this been done, rehabilitation would have been quicker and sure erosion would have been reduced. Thus , the gradually worsening situation would be arrested.

If man would shoulder the responsibility for his own greedy misuse of the land, the goat could easily carry the blame for its own much smaller share in this degradation. Unfortunately, because human nature is what it is, man will find something to blame for his own carelessness. The goat has been chosen to carry this blame largely because it is often the last animal to be seen wrestling a precarious living from the area where man has done his worst and from which cattle and sheep have long since been forced to move.

Conservation of land depends on proper planning. Livestock numbers therefore, irrespective of species, should be strictly limited to a density which will permit pasture renewal instead of causing its degeneration. This adjustment of numbers should help man to have a balanced mixture of livestock. Many writers in recent years have tried to show that there has been considerable improvement in mountain grazing areas after the banishment of the goat. Most, however, fail to indicate to what extent this has been due, solely, to the removal of the goat or to a reduction in other livestock densities or other measures such as erosion control, terracing, the building of gabions and grass planting. It is essential to ensure that results which are obtained in one environment are not automatically applied to a different one.

2. EXTRACT (25 Marks)

Read the passage below and then answer the questions that follow.

2.

DR. STOCKMANN:

I will tell you that too, later on (holds out the card to PETRA). There, Petra, tell sooty –nose to run over to “ the Badge’s with that as quick as she can. Hurry up’ (PETRA takes the card and goes out to the hall.). Well, I think I have had a visit from every one of the devil’s messengers to- today; But now I am going to sharpen my pen till they feel its point, I shall dip it in venom and gall, I shall hurl my inkpot at their heads; They’ll find out that a pen is mightier than an umbrella.

MRS. STOCKMANN: Yes but we are going away, you know Thomas.(PETRA comes back).

DR. STOCKMANN: Well? PETRA: She has taken it.

DR. STOCKMANN: Good! Going away, did you say? No, I’ll be hanged if we are going away’. We are going to stay here, Katherine! PETRA: Stay here?

MRS. STOCKMANN: Here, in this town?

DR. STOCKMANN: Yes, here. This is the field of battle this is where the fight will be. This is where I shall triumph; As soon as I have had my trousers sewn up I shall go out and look for another house. We must have a roof over our heads for the next winter.

HORSTER: That you shall have in my house.

DR. STOCKMANN: Can we really?

HORSTER: Yes, quite. I have plenty of room, and I am hardly ever at home.

MRS. STOCKMANN: How good of you, Captain Horster! PETRA: Thank you!

DR. STOCKMANN: (shaking his hands): Thank you, thank you: That is one trouble over! Now I can set to work in earnest. There is an endless amount of things to look through here, Katherine! Fortunately I shall have all the time; because I have been dismissed from the Baths, you know. MRS. STOCKMANN: (with a sigh); Oh yes, I expected that.

DR. STOCKMANN:

And they want to take my practice away from me too. Let them! have got the poor people to fall back upon, anyway- those that don’t pay anything; and they need me most, too. But, oh, they will have to listen to me: I shall preach to them in season and out of season, or whatever the phrase is! MR. STOCKMANN: But, dear, Thomas, I should have thought events had showed you what use it is to preach.

DR. STOCKMANN:

You are really ridiculous, Katherine. Do you want me to let myself be beaten off the field by public opinion and the ‘compact majority’ and that nonsense? No, thank you’ And what I want to do is very simple and clear and straight forward. I only want to drum into the heads of these mongrels the fact the liberals are the most insidious enemies of freedom- that party programmes strangle the new truth- that consideration of expediency turn morality and justice upside down – and that they will end by making life here impossible. Don’t you think, Captain Horster that I ought to be able to make people understand that?

HORSTER:

Very likely: I don’t know much about such things myself.

DR. STOCKMANN:

Well, look here – I explain! It is the party leaders that must be destroyed. A party leader is like a gluttonous wolf. He requires a certain number of smaller victims to prey upon every year, if he is to live. Just look at Hovstad and Aslaksen! How many smaller victims have they finished off or at any rate maimed mauled until they are fit for nothing except to be householders or subscribers to the people’s…………………… Messenger!(sits down on the edge of the table). Come here, Katherine – look how beautifully the sun shines to –day! And this lovely air I am drinking in!

MRS. STOCKMANN:

Yes, if only we could live on sunshine and fresh air, Thomas.

While driving in the back seat with his darly

Between his legs without the driver seeing at a thing!

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Look at the driver chasing the children away

They want to see the pistol in the door pocket
Or the button that lets out bullets from the machine

Thought the eyes of the car – Sshhhhhhhh

But I tell you that Motoka can run

It sails like alyato, speeds like a swallow

And doesn’t know anyone stupid on its way
