1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
Fleming was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to eke out a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired till his waist in black muck was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman‟s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy farmer Fleming had saved. “I want to repay you,” said the nobleman. “You saved my son‟s life.”
“No, I can‟t accept payment for what I did,” the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer‟s son came to the door, “Is that your son?‟ the nobleman asked. “Yes,” the farmer replied proudly. “I‟ll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good education. If the man is like you, he‟ll grow up to be a man you can be proud of.” And that he did
In time, farmer Fleming‟s son graduated from St Mary‟s Hospital Medical School, London. He went on to become the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Lions generally hunt in couples and occasionally alone. They feed on deer, buffaloes and even porcupines. A herd of lions is known as a pride. The lions usually wait for their prey at the water points. When a deer or a buffalo is sighted by the male lion, it drives it toward the lioness.
