Stand in the line at
the shop while you wait to pay for your items and count how many women you see.
Perhaps you have four ahead of you. Out of those four, there is at least one of

As such, these students are often referred to as slow learners because they encounter difficulties in grasping the rudimentary and therefore, should be allowed to learn at their own pace.

Remedial classes are synonymous to a medicine necessary to cure the slow learners of their learning difficulties and hence, improve their educational performance.

Often they don’t take part in the interactive session. Sometimes they are humiliated in the formal classroom for their disinterest.
