Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 
Rohan walked into the classroom and saw the girls crowding around Jason. He rolled his eyes and went to sit with his friends. The fight had been going on for the past four gears, from the moment Rohan was transferred to the school. The teachers and the discipline master had immediately taken a liking to him since he was very well-behaved and was an expert swimmer. Moreover, he topped the semestral examinations.

Jason laughed loudly and banged the table to get the attention of the others. Rohan and his friends remained calm and ignored him. Miss Wong was late. As she walked in, the class went quiet and got up to greet her. She started the lesson by choosing Rohan to be the Mathematics representative.

"That's not fair!" shouted Jason. He was upset and angry at not being able to get the post. "No one voted for him," he argued. Miss Wong sighed and leant against the board. She instructed the class to write down the name of whom they would like to have as their Mathematics representative and submit it to her by the end of the lesson.

Jason grinned smugly at Rohan and took his seat. The topic for the day-fractions-was not Jason's strongest. He scratched his head and kept looking at Vidushi's answers. Jason noticed Rohan writing continuously and felt discouraged. Maybe he would be given the position because he got all correct, he feared. He wiped the sweat off his brows and concentrated on the sums.

At the end of the lesson, Miss Wong collected the votes from the class and started counting them. She wrote the nominees' names on the whiteboard as well as the number of votes cast under their names. Miss Wong glared at Jason as she announced Rohan as the winner. "What a waste of time, Jason," she muttered and left.

Rohan turned in time and missed the punch coming his way. Jason grabbed Rohan's collar and dragged him to the wall. Just when the class thought that Jason had the upper hand, Rohan twisted Jason's arm, brought it to the back of his hip and held it firmly. He threatened to report the matter to the next teacher if he did not return to his place quietly. Rohan's friends stood by him. Jason knew he was cornered. He meekly nodded.
