    The Fifth Part of the novel is titled "A New Life, Far From Home" because Malala's injury from the Taliban attack forced her and her family to leave Pakistan and seek safety in Birmingham, UK. The threat posed by the Taliban made it necessary for them to be away from their home for an extended period of time.

    • D.

      Protective Services Unit

    Correct Answer
    C. Intensive Care Unit
    Explanation
    Malala was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) when she first came to after the injury. The ICU is a specialized department in hospitals that provides constant monitoring and care for critically ill patients. Given that Malala had suffered a head injury, it is likely that she required close observation and specialized treatment, which would be provided in the ICU. The Head Trauma Department and Cardiology Department may also be relevant for her condition, but the ICU is the most appropriate answer based on the information provided. The Protective Services Unit is unrelated to her medical care and can be eliminated as an option.

    After thinking about how her dad's voice sounded, Malala realized that he had been told not to cry when he talked with her. The probable reason for this is that he didn't want her to worry about him or her family so much. By keeping his voice bright and not showing any signs of distress, he was trying to reassure Malala and focus her attention on getting better rather than on their difficult situation.

This suggests that Malala valued the power of dialogue and communication, and she believed that through conversation, she could have potentially influenced the Taliban's perspective or conveyed her own thoughts and beliefs.

  • 15. 

    Before Malala's parents and family arrived in Birmingham, Malala would probably most describe her stay at the hospital as being........

    • A.

      Boredom filled

    • B.

      Exciting and invigorating

    • C.

      Pessimistc feeling

    • D.

      Filled with freedom because she was glad to be out of Pakistan and away from the Taliban!

    Correct Answer
    A. Boredom filled
    Explanation
    Based on the information given, Malala's stay at the hospital before her family arrived in Birmingham would most likely be described as "boredom filled." This can be inferred from the fact that she was in a hospital, which is typically not an exciting or invigorating environment. Additionally, the other options of feeling pessimistic or filled with freedom do not align with the context of being in a hospital. Therefore, "boredom filled" is the most suitable description for her stay at the hospital.

This suggests that the doctor made a decision that was contrary to the opinions or recommendations of his superiors, indicating that he took initiative and prioritized Malala's immediate medical needs.
