    Answer all questions in this paper.

    The text below is about a students first day in a secondary school.

    Question 1

    Read the text below. The first and last lines are correct. For the remaining lines, there is

    one grammatical error in each line.

    Underline the error. Then, write one word to correct the error in the space provided. An

    example has been given. The correct word must not change the meaning of the

    sentence. There are no spelling and punctuation errors in this text.

    When I sit back and recall my first-day experience in a secondary school, I

    often laugh at myself. I reached school early that day but was excited to see

    new faces. Many parents accompanied their children whom looked smart in

    their new uniforms. I was looked forward to seeing my former classmates but I

    did not see any of them. All Form One students was told to go to the hall right

    away. Later, all the form teachers took the students to his respective

    classrooms. The teachers started to call out our name. When I did not hear my

    name, I quick approached her. She went over the list again and informed me

    that my name was not above it. That puzzled me since I was sure I had

    registered my name. I was then told to check with an office. I finally located the

    office and meet the school clerk. I was told that I was not registered there. Only

    then did I realise that in her excitement, I had went to the wrong school. On

    arriving at the correct school, I told my friends what had happened and they had

    a good laugh.
