1. Read the following passage and answer the question below; [5*3=15]
I must have been very young at the time. While I don’t remember exactly how old was I, i do remember that when people saw me with my grandfather they would pat me on the head and give my cheek a pinch-thing they didn’t do to my grandfather.

The strange thing was that I never used to go out with my father, rather it was my grandfather who would take me with him wherever he went, except for the morning when I would go to mosque to learn the Koran while most of the children of my age grumbled at having to go to mosque to learn the Koran, I used to love it. The reason was, no doubt, that I was quick at learning by heart and the teacher always asked me to stand up and recite the chapter of the Merciful whenever we had visitors, who would pat me on my head. Directly after we finished our Koran reading in the morning, I would throw down my wooden slate and dart off, quick as a genie, to my mother, hurriedly swallow down my breakfast, and run off for a bath in the river.
