Questions 1 to 5 are based on the following passages:

How men first learned to invent words is unknown. In other words, the origin of language is a mystery. All we really know is that men, unlike animals, somehow invented certain sounds to express thoughts and feelings, actions and thing, so that they could communicate with each other; and that later they agree upon certain signs, called letters which could be combined to represent those sounds, and which could be written down, Those sounds, whether spoken or written in letters, we call words.

The power of words, then, lies in their associations --- the things they bring up before our minds. Words become filled with meaning for us by experience; and the longer we live, the more certain words recall to us the glad and sad events of our past; and the more we read and learn, the more the number of words that mean something to us increases.
