SECTION B – READING
Question 3. (10 points) Read the passage below and choose the best answer.

Getting good results in your studies comes from developing good study habits. The best
place to study is a comfortable room with good lighting . The best chair for studying should be one
which you would be comfortable in, but not so comfortable that you may fall asleep in it after
while ! Before you study, look for a quite environment with no distractions. If you find your home
too noisy for studying , try the library or community centre instead.
When you study, set realistic targets for yourself to achieve. For example. do not aim to study
five chapters of Geography in one sitting when you know that you take more than an hour to read
one chapter . Furthermore , remember not to push yourself too hard. When you have studied for a
period of time , reward yourself by taking a short break. You could perhaps take a short walk or
listen to some music for a while.
If you begin to feel sleepy when studying , do not force yourself to go on as you may lose your
power of concentration. Instead, you may want to take a short nap to refresh yourself. Studying
may also be strenuous on the eyes. When you study, it may be a good idea to lift your eyes away
from your books occasionally. Looking at objects at a distance or at greenery can help soothe tired
eyes..
