COMPREHENSION NO. 5


COMPREHENSION NO. 5 

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end.
     For three years the master and all his relatives lived in this valley. Many of the Muslims too joined them. All supplies to the valley were cut off. The Makkans saw to it that no food or drink reached the Banu Hashim. The poor Banu Hashim had to live on the leaves and roots of trees and bushes. The condition of children was particularly pitiable.
