Read the following passage and answer questions

Passage:
How many times have you asked, “Why did he do that ? Why did she say that ? Why does nothing ever work out for me ? Why didn’t I get what I wanted ? Why does this keep happening in my life ?” “Whyology” is the obsessive need to know why things happen as they do, which results in emotional paralysis, keeping you stuck. Why do you need to know why things happen ? If you did know, would it make that much difference ? Many people will say, “Yes, it would make a difference, because then I would be able to move on and let go.” The truth is that the letting-go experience has nothing to do with knowing why things happen as they do. In fact the more you need to know why,the less likely you are to let go and more on. Unless you release this cycle, you will be robbed of your ability to appreciate and enjoy the moment you are living in right now. Think of all the energy that you could use to create in life if you left the practice of keeping vigil on tombstones. Internal stress comes when you resist what is in life. When you release your need to know why, an amazing thing starts to happen. You begin to connect with your inner creativity, which helps you find creative solutions to your situation.

Passage:
Tea has always been an integral part of our beverage culture. Its origins are the stuff of legend. A Chinese story says that when an Emperorwaspurifying waterin the shelter of a tea tree, some leaves fell into the pot. The liquid that emerged after boiling was of a wonderful fragrance, colour and taste, and the first tea to be brewed. In India, we are told of a Prince, who left his homeland to preach Buddhism and decided notto sleep duringhis. nine-year mission. At the end of his third year, overtaken by exhaustion, he chewed a few leaves of a tea shrub, which apparently enabled him to stay awake for the remaining six years. Over the years, tea drinking was refined into an art and indeed has even been elevated into an elaborate, almost sacred rite as in the Japanese tea ceremony. But if there was one culture that adopted tea drinking and madeit an iconic ritual and time of day in itself, it was the English.
