A negligible number of the candidates who answered this question wrote off the point. They were to write on Elijah’s flight to Mount Horeb and how God planned to punish the house of Ahab. Majority of them did not answer the question well as they mainly wrote on the mount Carmel experience.
They failed to mention that:
(i) Elijah ran away to Beersheba;
(ii) he preferred to die because they wanted to kill him;
(iii) he came to Mountain Horeb and hid in a cave;
(iv) he was ordered to return to Damascus.
The candidates did not perform well in (b) part as they could not mention the following points:
(i) Elijah to anoint Hazael King over Syria.
(ii) Anoint Jehu King over Israel
(iii) Elisha to succeed Elijah as prophet.
