Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions below...

Chike must have passed the house five times, yet he was still not sure. Was this the house he had visited so often in the past? The house he used to visit was a bungalow, but this house was also a bungalow. The old house was situated between two-storey buildings; this one too was so situated. But despite this feeling of certainty, Chike had a vague suspicion that the house he had passed so often that day might be the wrong house after all. Could an absence of two years have blurred his memory so badly?

After a few moments of hesitation, Chike began to move towards the house and then stopped as if held back by an invisible hand. His attention had been distracted by a girl of about twenty-four, who was tripping along the pavement to his right. He turned and advanced towards her, and was about to call her by what he felt was her name when he discovered that he had made a mistake concerning her identity.

Just as Chike turned from the girl to continue his quest, he heard voices shouting ‘thief! thief!’ and saw a crowd materialize in seconds. At the head of this justice-impelled rabble was a ludicrously fat woman who inspite of her size, bounced along with the agility of a prize athlete. This barrel bellowed loudest and clapped her hands vigorously to punctuate her outburst. And as she did so, the surplus flesh on her podgy arms quivered. ‘They are all the same!’ the woman screamed, addressing nobody in particular. ‘They dress gorgeously, but underneath they are rogues’.

Again, she clapped her hands and again, there was a quivering of loose flesh. Chike was so busily occupied with watching the antics of this woman that he did not notice at first that the object of her venom was the girl that he had seen earlier. It was this girl that was now surrounded by the crowd, with many people groaning, sighing and hissing in unison. Chike relaxed and prepared to watch the drama unfolding before him.

________________________________________

One fact we have to comprehend is that in our unconscious mind, we cannot distinguish between a wish and a deed. We are all aware of some of our illogical dreams in which two opposite statements can exist side by side – very acceptable in our dreams but unthinkable and illogical in our waking state.

Just as our unconscious mind cannot differentiate between the wish to kill somebody in anger and the act of having done so, the young child is unable to make this distinction. The child who angrily wishes his mother to drop dead for not having gratified his need will be traumatized greatly by the actual death of his mother – even if this event is not linked closely in time with his destructive wishes. He will always take part of or the whole of the blame for the loss of his mother. He will say to himself – rarely to others – ‘I did it. I am responsible. I was bad, therefore mummy left me’. It is well to remember that the child will react in the same manner if he loses a parent by divorce, separation or desertion.

Death is often seen by the child as impeachment and therefore has a little distinction from a divorce in which he may have an opportunity to see a parent again.


6. Our unconscious minds and dreams are alike in that.

A. both are out of our control

B. both can accommodate contradictions

C. neither functions in a continuous manner

D. both deal with non-real issues

7. From the child’s point of view, in what ways is death likened to divorce?

A. Both are losses.

B. Both are temporary.

C. Both would involve his mother.

D. Both are consequences of his wishes.

8. This passage emphasizes.

A. the young child growing up in ignorance

B. our unconscious mind

C. a child’s inability to distinguish between imagination and reality

D. illogical dreams and wishes

9. The child would feel responsible for his mother’s death even if it is unconnected with his wishes because.

A. he regards his wishes as a curse

B. he hates her and wants her dead

C. his needs are gratified

D. he cannot distinguish between imagination and reality

10. ‘Traumatized’ as used in the passage means.

A. angered

B. happy and satisfied

C. sad and dejected

D. feel guiltless
