Exercise 2.
most of you just copy the words from the text literally.

So as to justify your answer you should use your own words and explanation besides some literal quotesusing:
The text says...
the text states...
the text recognises...
According to the text, ...
If you look close at paragraph two, the text clearly establishes...
Some of your texts, do not follow an organised pattern.

Remember to follow this pattern:
1. introduction
2. body
3. conclusion (do not add extra information in the conclusion)

Come on! Cheer up! You are about to start the second term! You will make it better soon! It is all about practice; the more you practice, the better: better results, and it will tire you less and less. I believe that we learn by practice and remember: Tomorrow's battle is won during today's practice.

Let's get to work!
