1. Read the following passage and answer the questions given below: [15]

Many African mothers carry or nestle, their babies, especially on their backs. This particular custom has advantages for both mother and child. A working mother who has nobody to look after the baby at home knows he is safe on her back, while her hands are free for her work. Meanwhile, the baby also stays in close contact with his mother and feels warm and safe. This sense of security may suddenly be broken, however, when the child can no longer be carried. He may be put down and expected to behave like a grown-up child. But he has been over-protected for so long through nestling that he feels very insecure now and may behave like a baby.

Children really need freedom and the chance to use their limbs. They need to be able to observe and explore their environment. They also require to learn how to make and do things on their own. Therefore, even when mothers must carry their babies everywhere, they should try to set them free whenever possible. Moreover, during hot months, the less back-nestling the better.

Many women, however, prefer to carry their children all day long. They feel the children are safe, sleep longer, keep quieter and do not make a mess! Once, I visited a friend's home where the mama-nurse was nestling my friend's eleven-month-old child. Seeing he was restless, I asked the mama-nurse to put the baby down. At first, she didn't want to because she thought the child would make the room untidy. When she finally agreed I asked for some kitchen pots, spoons, unopened tins and boxes since there were no toys to play with. Immediately, the child started examining the things one by one. Then he started banging the pots and boxes with the spoons. The different sounds fascinated him. But mama-nurse didn't like the noise or the mess.
