    Direction: Read the passage given below carefully and answer the questions that follow.
    Mini was twelve years old and a spastic. A spastic is a person who has no control over his hands and legs from birth. Mini could not walk, or button up her shirt, but she could crawl and had learnt to use her hand to brush her teeth and use a spoon to eat. She could also maneuver her wheelchair. She went to a special school where she was taught exercises and underwent speech therapy, as well as learnt the usual subjects like other children. But Mini had no friends. Ever since they had come to this house six months ago, Mini had no one to play with. All the neighborhood children seemed to be busy with their own games and schools, and they had never become friendly with Mini. It was Mini's routine to watch the children at play.
    Big drops of rain started falling. But the children went on with their game. The big red ball bounced up and down. Suddenly there was another ball among the children. A brown one. The girls started screaming, and the boys shouted at the top of their voices. A boy bent down to touch the ball, when it suddenly flapped its wings and flew up. Before Mini knew what was happening, the new ball had flown into her balcony and landed on her lap. It took a moment before Mini recovered from her shock. She saw that the thing in her lap was not a ball at all, but a bird! It was sitting in her lap, all huddled up in fright. It suddenly started raining heavily.
    Which one of the following activities could be performed by Mini in spite of being a spastic child?

    B) Playing with the neighbourhood kids
