From the population of 46, the researcher sampled 24 participants (20 pupils and 4 teachers). To collect data, document analysis, questionnaires and interviews were . The collected data was presented quantitatively as well as qualitatively using tables and bar graph as well as qualitatively. Analysis and discussion came after presentation of data. The study revealed that learners have challenges in answering questions from sources such as maps, cartoons, speeches and letters. These challenges were caused by lack of resources, failure to interpret sources, lack of adequate practise and teachers‟ and learners‟ negative attitude towards source-based questions. The researcher then recommended that resources should be provided by the schools, the teachers are encouraged to use various teaching methods to arouse interest in learners. In addition, the teachers to be staff developed on teaching source-based questions.
