02. Write a summary of the passage below in five sentences (FTNA KATAVI REGIONAL MOCK, 2018)
Mobile phones have the advantage that one can take the call almost anywhere instead of waiting at home for a phone call. However, they may have several advantages. Secret information may be accessed by intended people through mobile phones and this may lead to breaking up social relations and leakage of restricted information such as examinations. Youths may waste a lot of their productive time chatting with friends or playing games. Sometimes they access information that will end up destroying them morally. Worse still, the electromagnetic waves given to us by phones can damage the brain.
Iddi and Pili were staying with their aunt who lives just outside Jinja. One day she asked the children to go shopping for her. “It is easy to find the way to shops,” she said. “Just go straight along this road and turn left at the Post Office. Go straight over the crossroads. Then go straight on till you come to a fork. Take the right fork. Then take the second turning on the right, the first on the left and then the third on the right. You will see the shops on your left.”
