1.Read the passage given below.                                                                       

  The Importance  of Sports

Sports are an important part of just about every society, every country, and every part of our planet.  In one way or the other, everyone is involved in sports, whether they're playing or watching or just know someone who does. There are many types of sports. Golf is an individual sport. Even though golfers play on the same course, they are really competing  against one another only with  their  scores. Unlike  tennis,  in which one player must beat the other to finish  a match, golf features each player against every other player, with the one who takes the fewest strokes to sink the ball into 18 holes is declared  the winner.  Baseball,  basketball,  and soccer are team sports where teams of five, seven, nine  or eleven  play against each other, with  team members helping  each other to win as a team. Sports are played for fun or for  money or sometimes both. Just about every sport has both professionals (those who compete for money) and amateurs (those who do not compete for money).  Many amateurs who are really good at their sport become professionals.  Sports bring people together and also set people apart. A team,  whether professional  or college  or amateur, can inspire  many fans to cheer for that  team. Each team has its own fans. So, when two teams or two individual athletes compete against each other, the fan base is  divided  in two. Such  classic  rivalries as Yankees-Red Sox in baseball and Liverpool v Everton in football can last for years and years, with  fan traditions  being  passed on from father to son.

(a)    Sports  are enjoyed by people who
