English JAMB Questions and Answers 2024 [Numbers 41 – 50]

Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

So far, I have been speaking of science in its universality, viewed from the perspective of the world at large. For in the context of our own country and our sister developing countries, many of the factors mentioned earlier are not very important. For example, pollution, deterioration of the environment and population explosion are not yet serious problems for us in the country.

Let me now turn to a more specific area, namely, the question of scientific choice for developing countries. There is no doubt that the role which science and technology have played in the upliftment of the material and economic well-being of the developed nations will, and does, influence the criteria that the Third World nations must choose in order to establish their science policies and priorities.

But the criteria to be used by these nations do not have to be the same as those which have brought the developed countries to their present stage of evolution. For while human beings have the same problems, their solutions, to be meaningful, will have to be sought within some relevant frame of reference, such as the available resources and expertise, social values, place and time in the historical scale.

41. “Frame of reference” in this passage means
A. Point of information
B. Range of authority
C. Economic pattern

A. 2, I and 6 only
B. 3, 2 and 4 only
C. 5, 3 and 6 only
D. 5, 2 and 6 only

44. The main idea of this passage is that
A. there is a yawning gap between the haves and have-nots
B. there could be atmospheric pollution and population explosion
C. the concerns of science and technology are the same in all countries
D. each nation must plan its development according to its needs and resources

45. The term our “sister developing countries” implies
A. Britain, Gambia and Canada
B. Ghana, Germany and Togo
C. China, India and Holland
D. Liberia, Sierra-Leone and Gabon

In each of the following questions, choose the option that has the same consonant sound as the one represented by the letter(s) underlined.

46. vision
A. attention          B. repression
C. intention          D. illusion

47. waste
A. surtax          B. cursed
C. paused        D. washed

48. Yolk
A. Could      B. Build
C. Silk          D. Sulk

49. Osmosis
A. Ostrich       B. Music
C. Scene        D. Sign
