Section B: Summary
[10 marks]

.Read the passage below and answer the question that follows.

Often, when you go jungle trekking, you get bitten by leeches. There are several ways to avoid getting
bitten by leeches. Here are a few methods that you can follow.
One way to stop leeches from biting you is by spraying insect repellent generously on your socks
and shoes before you start your trek through the jungle. This will cause the leeches to curl up and drop
off before they bite you. If you prefer not to do this, there is another way. You can try soaking your
clothes in salt solution or tea. Make sure you dry them in the sun before wearing them. This will stop
leeches from coming near you. You can also wear special "leech socks" that you can pull over your
trouser legs.
If you find leeches on your body, you can make them drop off by putting a burning matchstick
close to them. Make sure you do not burn yourself, though. Leech bites will bleed. To stop the bleeding
you can rub some fire ash or sea cucumber oil on the bite. Once the bleeding stops, wash the wound
with soap and water. This will prevent the wound from getting infected.

Write a summary on how to stop leeches from biting you while on a jungle trek.

Your summary must:


• not be more than 60 words, including the 10 words given below
