Comprehension and Vocabulary

Q.1. Read through the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :  

         If you do not use your arms or your legs for some time they become weak, when you start using them again, they become strong. Everybody knows this, yet there are many people, who do not seem to know that the memory works in the same way. When someone says that he has a good memory, he really means that he keeps his memory in practice by exercising it regularly, consciously or unconsciously. When someone else says that his memory is poor, it means that he has not given it enough opportunity to become strong. The position is exactly the same as that of two persons, one of whom exercises his limbs and the other sits in a chair all day. 

               If a friend complains that his hands are weak, we know that it is his fault. But if he tells us that he has a poor memory, we consider him unlucky. Few of us realize that it is just as much his own fault as if it was his arms or legs that were weak. Not all of us can become extremely strong or extremely clever; but all of us can, if we have ordinary bodies and brains, improve our strength and our memory by the same means practice. 

                Have you ever noticed that people who cannot read or write, usually have their memories better than those who can ? Why is this ? Of course those who cannot read or write have to remember things; they cannot write them down in their notebooks. They have to remember dates, time, names, songs and stories, so their memory is constantly being exercised. Those who want to have good memories have to learn this lesson from the humble and the illiterate.
