  • USSR/CLOZE 2010 Secondary 4/5 NA R Name: _______________________ No: ____ Date: ________ Class: __________ KEY Main Instructions: 1. Fill in each blank with a suitable word. 2. Write each answer in the space provided in the passage. Important information: 1. Spelling errors. You receive a ½ mark if the word is a correct fit, but wrongly spelt, e.g. “missery” for “misery” or “sufficent” for “sufficiently”. You receive 0 if the spelling is so bad that the word is unrecognizable by the marker. The marker’s decision is final. 2. Grammatical errors. You receive O if the grammatical form is incorrect, e.g. “construct” for “constructed” or “suppose” for “supposing”. CLOZE 7: Another 2 Letters on “Getting Fit for NS” T1W4.2010 Letter from Muhd Farouq Osman, 20, an NUS first year Arts and Social Sciences student Basic Military Training – the three words young and uninitiated Singaporean males loathe. It is of no [1] surprise that the very thought of having to serve an extended training period on Singapore’s Pulau Tekong would [2] pressure many pre-enlistees to get into shape [3] before national service. Why would anyone risk getting a prolonged stint in a boot camp on a secluded island, cut off from [4] civilization? They are merely seeking an “escape route” from what is commonly [5] perceived as an unnecessary quagmire of hardship. Even though I failed my physical fitness test [6] prior to enlistment and had to go in four weeks early, I also wanted to make my life [7] easier as a recruit. That was [8] why I trained on my own. The Ministry of Defence should initiate outreach programmes in schools to [9] create awareness of the rigours of military training. Showing a video of recruits going through the standard obstacle course would surely scare the [10] wits out of young boys, convincing them of the need to prepare [11] themselves for national service. Letter from Bryan Toh, 17, an NAP second year Mass Communications student I admit it – I am [12] looking forward to national service. About a year ago, I started working out in the gym to toughen up and [13] improve my self-esteem. One year [14] on, I have problems keeping up with the rigorous gym schedules. I am sure anyone who works out will agree that a huge problem with working out regularly is motivation. There are days when I just feel like staying home to sleep instead of hauling myself to the gym. That is where national service comes in. Since it is going to take up two [15] precious years of my youth, I might as well make the most of it and treat it as something I can use to improve my physical fitness and build up both muscle and willpower. I can do so only if I am already approaching peak fitness – hence I am hitting the gym regularly again. That is national service for me – the best motivation ever. 1. 4. 7. 10. 13. 2. 5. 8. 11. 14.
