Read the passage below carefully and choose the best option.

  The star of every New Year is when we make plans to change our life for the better over the forthcoming twelve months. Psychiatry professor Jayashri Kulkarni says, “January 1st is a ‘magical’ date and a vow made on this day is much more powerful than the one made on June 1st, for example.” So, we make a list of things to quit, start or change. Unfortunately, most of these promises are, more often than not, broken by January 31st. They are usually the identical resolutions that were not fulfilled from the previous year, and the years prior to that.

  Researches show 45 percent of us make a New Year’s resolution. The most common vows including losing weight, volunteering to help others, quitting smoking, saving money and getting fit. Others include eating healthier food, drinking less alcohol, and going on overseas trips. However, researches also show that most of us are not so good at sticking to these. A study from the University of Scranton reveals that 71 percent of ust stick to our annual promises for the first two weeks; six months later, less than 50 percent are still on track to keep their resolutions. Most people who give up on their do so because of a lack of willpower and the use of the ‘escape clause’ that they will ‘try again next year.’

Read the passage below carefully and choose the best option.

  Sloth was famous for being the laziest animal in the forest. He would eat and sleep all day comfortably on the tree branches. All the other animals would be busy singing, playing and looking for food and shelter but not Sloth. They told him, “You are a good for nothing.” But Sloth just ignored them and carried on lazing around.

  One day, a bird built her nest near Sloth’s branch. She laid her eggs and watched over them until they hatched. Then, she had to fly off and look for food. She asked Sloth to keep an eye on her babies. Sloth was too lazy to even answer. “You are good for nothing.” said the bird angrily and flew off.

  Soon, a snake slithered up the tree looking for baby birds to eat. It did not notice Sloth on the branch. It was just about to strike the baby birds when it felt a sharp pain on its side. Sloth had clawed it. The snake fell to the ground and slithered away. The mother bird saw what Sloth did. She felt so ashamed of herself. “Sorry,” she said to Sloth. Sloth simply went back to sleep.
