Must Practise Delsu Post utme Questions

Read the passage carefully and answer questions

Bida is the capital of Nupeland: an ancient and alluring walled city of round clay houses with pargeted walls, sometimes painted in bold red or black designs, and arranged in quarters according to their owners’, crafts.

For Bida is a nest of craftsmen, still organized into hereditary guilds. The houses stand in clusters, their
small fanns round them; although the soil looks light and sandy, everything grows; groundnuts, guinea corn,rice, cotton, beans, tomatoes, maize. The guildsmen, however, do not cultivate; they are too busy.

Every day except Friday – for Bida is a Muslim city they start at dawn and ply their craft with speed and skill until about four O’clock. No Trade Union here, no regulated hours,no shop- stewards, no five-day weeks; and those who work for wages draw about one thousand naira a day.

And yet they manage, and do not seem in the least oppressed or exploited. On the contrary, these glass workers, bead-makers, weavers, brass- and silversmiths are honoured citizens of Bida, higher as it were, ranking only below the Fulani aristocracy. The glass-workers are perhaps the most spectacular. In the hut’s centre is a sunken furnace, its clay wall built up about a foot above the ground.

A boy feeds it continually with logs; it is a Moloch of timbre. Another, or an apprentice, works a leather bellows by means of two sticks. He pumps these two sticks up and down with a rhythm fast and regular, and seems to continue for hours without a break.

This work must be very exhausting, but the boy or youth never falters, for the red-hot furnace must not for an instant cease to roar and flow. Some of the raw material derived from melted-down bottles, of which the dark-blue and amber medicine bottles are the most popular.
