(Read the following passage and answer the questions following it)
Dear Rohel,
I apologize for being failed in sending your letter’s reply. This is because last month there happened a tragic accident in my uncle’s family. My uncle died of chronic bronchitis.
He had the habit of smoking heavily. He was accustomed to this bad habit from teenage age. Recently both my uncle’s and our family became anxious about my uncle’s worsening health condition. He was having continuous coughing and chest pain. So we admitted him into a hospital. The doctor showed him his chest X-ray plates and endoscope image. There were dark marks on his lever and lungs. The doctor explained to him that the marks were the proof of his severe bronchitis. He also explained that a deadly and harmful substance called nicotine is in tobacco leaves; and cigarettes are made from tobacco leaves.
He explained that when a person smokes cigarettes, this nicotine enters into their lungs with every puff. If anybody smokes cigarettes for years, this deadly nicotine causes bronchitis, lung cancer, heart diseases etc. We all tried to stop him from smoking. He never paid any heed to our requests and warnings. He died an untimely death.
My uncle’s death brings a great shock for both families. He was the only earning person of his family. HE has a big family of six. So his family is in a great trouble for his sudden death. Now they have to depend on the help of our family. So we don’t know how long we may help them to survive.
However, pray for us to recover from the shock. Write me when you have the time. Give my regards to your parents.
Yours ever
Kahnopa
