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.
