Question 5

Write a story to illustrate the saying: The devil makes work for idle hands.



This was not a popular question but many of those who attempted it did not show a clear understanding of the saying so, they ended up writing irrelevant stories. Also, many candidates muddled up the tenses in the course of the narration. Candidates should be taught that in storytelling, the tense used should be the past.
