please i have some questions about a text so can anyone help me please
this is the text and the questions
Part one. Reading
Read the text carefully then do the activities
Do you want to study in High School or in College? These two options are very dissimilar, although in both you can learn a lot. These differences include homework, tests, and attendance policies.
The first difference is homework. In High School, most teachers will assign you to turn in your homework late if you give them an excuse such as "I forgot it at home" or "It is in my locker". In contrast, in College if you give your professor one of these excuses, they will say "Too bad" and you do not have another opportunity.
Another difference is the tests. There are also a lot of tests in High School; usually, there is a test every week or two. Although in College there are more tests, the work is not hard. Most of the time you will read aloud in class or go over every point of the homework so, there is no question of what you have to do.
The last difference is the attendance policies. In High School the teachers are always on you about attendance; that is, if you miss too many days, you can fail, so if you are not in class, they want to know why; in addition, they probably call your parents and let them know that you were not in class. On the contrary, in College the teachers do not care whether or not you are in class; it means that if you are not there, you are going to get a failing grade, so you have to be responsible to succeed. It is up to you.
To conclude, the main differences between High School and College are the assignments, exams, and absences. The High Schools teachers teach the students the responsibility by making them do their homework and by monitoring their attendance and College students are expected to have it. So, in my personal opinion, I prefer High School because I need more attention.
