The English Language paper comes in different sections including the summary section. In most cases, students find it difficult to answer the summary question leading them to score lower marks under that section.
As a candidate, it’s always too good to solve more of the summary if you want to have a greater understanding of how to solve the summary question in your final year examination.
In our previous articles, we have given out some of the English Language past questions both papers one and two. In this article, we are going to single out the English language Summary Section of the WAEC Exams and solve them so you can have a better understanding.

See Below the Answers to the Above Summary Passage.
(a) Food available is not distributed according to the needs of the people.
(I) Poor road network linking farms to cities.
(ii) Overpopulation in the cities affects food security.
(iii) High rate of migration from rural areas to the cities also affects food security.
(iv) Industrialization in the cities will affect food security.
From the passage, under paragraph two, the writer defines food security as the “access by all people at all times to enough food for an active healthy life”.
The writer also added that The food available worldwide would be sufficient to meet the needs of the earth’s population if it were distributed according to need.
This is the reason why millions of people go to bed every night without food according to the writer.
The above factors listed in question (b) are being summarized from the statements below from the passage. In the passage, the writer highlighted that:
“As cities grow, the surrounding fields once dedicated to agricultural production are progressively lost to new housing, industries, and roads. Often, little or no food is grown within the cities.”
“In many developing countries, the roads along which produce is transported from farms to cities are inadequate. This means longer transportation time, greater wastage, and, in the end, higher prices to consumers, many of whom are very poor.”
