A.l. Read the  passage carefully and answer the questions that follow  : 
 
Most of us have a sweet tooth and a favorite form of confectionery is chocolate, whether 
this comes in the form of sweets, chocolate bars or cakes. The huge range of chocolate 
products on display in sweet shops and supermarkets show us how popular chocolate is. 
Indeed, some of  us are so fond of  it that we become chocoholics. 
We are regularly told that a diet containing too much sugar and too much fat is bad for us, 
and chocolate contains a great deal of both of these. Thus, we have got used to the idea that 
eating chocolate  is a sinful pleasure. 
Eating chocolate often makes us feel good. Even some health experts do not deny this, 
because it is thought to have a biochemical effect on the part of the brain that is concerned 
with pleasure. If you are feeling depressed eating chocolate can be a real tonic which cheers 
you up instantly. Unfortunately this effect is transitory and you soon feel down again. 
Nutritionists have tended to concentrate on the negative side effects of chocolate, pointing 
out that the combination of a high fat content and a high sugar content can be a cause of 
obesity in people who overindulge in it. They also rem

ind us that food which are high in fat 
can lead to heart disease. Chocolate is also said to cause headaches in some people, and is
