The people at the fair were leaving (because/ but) the lights were
Answer πŸ‘‰
The people at the fair were leaving because the lights were going out. The last two people in dodgem cars also left as it was getting dark. The big wheel stopped and the merry-go-round had already stopped. The stalls closed down, and the stall-owners went home. At 2 a.m., four nightwatchmen walked round the funfair to see if there was anyone to be seen. "I'm fed up walking around," one of them said, "What can we do so that there is nothing we can do?" "We can sit and talk." They were bored because there was nothing to do on that quiet warm night. "We can have a ride on the merry-go-round!" one of them cried. "That'll be fun!" Three of them jumped on merry-go-round horses, so the fourth started the motor. Then he jumped on too, and round they went. They were having the time of their lives. Suddenly they realized there was no one to stop the machine, so all of them were on it. They weren't rescued till morning, as they felt very sick indeed!

B. What is your favourite food? Write a recipe to prepare it. Mention the ingredients and the methods to cook it.

My favorite food is spaghetti carbonara. Here's a recipe to prepare it:


  • 8 ounces (225 grams) spaghetti
  • 4 slices of bacon, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Cook the spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set it aside.

  2. In a large skillet, cook the diced bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, leaving the bacon drippings in the skillet.

  3. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic to the bacon drippings and sautΓ© for about a minute until fragrant.

  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and grated Parmesan cheese until well combined. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  5. Add the cooked spaghetti to the skillet with the garlic and bacon drippings, tossing to coat the spaghetti evenly.

  6. Remove the skillet from heat and slowly pour the egg and cheese mixture over the spaghetti, stirring quickly to combine. The heat from the spaghetti will cook the eggs and create a creamy sauce.

  7. Return the skillet to low heat and continue to toss the spaghetti until the sauce thickens slightly and coats the pasta. Be careful not to overcook the eggs, as they can scramble.

  8. Stir in the crispy bacon pieces, reserving some for garnish.

  9. Remove the skillet from heat and transfer the spaghetti carbonara to serving plates. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon pieces and fresh parsley for garnish.

  10. Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious homemade spaghetti carbonara!

Note: You can customize the recipe by adding cooked peas, mushrooms, or other ingredients of your choice to enhance the flavor and texture.

Chef Shah's expertise in elevating the flavors and presentation of momo would captivate the judges and the viewers, as he infuses his personal touch and innovative techniques into this beloved Nepali delicacy. His culinary skills and ability to experiment with ingredients and flavors would truly shine through in his interpretation of Momo.

In summary, if I had the privilege of being a judge in the competition, I would undoubtedly request Chef Shah to prepare Momo.

Answer πŸ‘‰ 
Why is Neelam smiling? It sounds like an easy question: she is having a good time with friends and she feels good after a good shot. But psychologists often argue about this question. Some believe that smiling is an individual act: we smile because we feel happy unless we are trying to hide our emotions. Others claim that we smile to build social relationships. Some animals use a grin to show that they will not fight, for example. Perhaps our smile serves the same function. So, who's right? In one study, researchers filmed people bowling. If you watch people doing a very social activity like this, it looks as if they always smile. They stop smiling only when they concentrate on their next shot. But when do they start smiling again? After each good shot, the researchers took photographs to identify when the smile starts — while the player is still looking down the alley or a few seconds later when they turn round to share their happiness with the group.

Writing II

Nowadays, many Nepali prefer fast foods like noodles, pizza, burger, etc. to typical Nepali foods. This has an adverse effects on their health, To what extent do you agree or disagree with this claim? Write a couple of paragraphs giving reasons to support your view.
Answer πŸ‘‰ In today's society, it is undeniable that many Nepalis have developed a preference for fast foods such as noodles, pizza, and burgers over traditional Nepali cuisine. While this shift in dietary preferences may offer convenience and novelty, I strongly disagree with the notion that it is without adverse effects on their health.

Firstly, fast foods are often high in unhealthy fats, sugars, and sodium, which can lead to a range of health issues. Regular consumption of these foods can contribute to weight gain, obesity, and an increased risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Moreover, fast foods are typically low in essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are vital for maintaining good health. By consistently choosing fast foods over nutritious Nepali meals, individuals may be depriving themselves of the balanced diet necessary for optimal well-being.

Additionally, the cultural and culinary heritage of Nepal should not be overlooked or undervalued. Nepali cuisine offers a rich variety of flavorful and nutritious dishes that have been enjoyed for generations. Traditional Nepali foods often incorporate a diverse range of ingredients, including vegetables, lentils, grains, and spices, which provide a wholesome and well-rounded nutritional profile. By neglecting these local culinary traditions in favor of fast foods, individuals may be missing out on the unique flavors and health benefits that come with consuming traditional Nepali meals.
