    Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow:
    Julius Caesar, the great Roman emperor, was well known for making crucial decisions quickly. When he landed in Britain with his troops, he saw that the British were courageous and fearless fighters. Caesar realized that such brave soldiers would never surrender to his forces without a tough fight and might even defeat his troops. If they were defeated, they would have to retreat to their ships.
    Caesar thought that the presence of his fleet in the harbour would tempt his soldiers to give up the fight easily and withdraw to the safety of the ships. He decided to burn all his ships so that his troops could not withdraw from British shores, no matter what happened and would either have to fight and win or die fighting.
    With the hope of returning to their ships gone, the Roman soldiers fought relentlessly and won the battle in spite of the fact that they were pitted against superior forces. This ability to take such prompt decisions was the key to Caesar's success and he won many battles because he could take important decisions quickly. Great men like Caesar and Napoleon cultivated the power to decide instantly which course of action to pursue. By taking prompt decisions they inspired confidence, courage and trust in their soldiers.
    When Caesar landed in Britain, he realized that_______.

    A) the British would never surrender

    B) the British might defeat his army

    C) both A and B

    D) none of these

    Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow:
    Suppose an accident occurs as you are passing by. You see a person lying unconscious and helpless. What should you do? You could go past the injured person and look away, or you could stop and help him. It is our duty to help those who are in need of help. Imagine your plight if you had an accident and no one came to your aid! We must care about the lives of other people as much as we care about our own.
    It is also our duty to help those who are less fortunate than us. In his time. Raja Ram Mohan Roy sought to improve the lot of women in India. He set up schools and institutions to educate them. He worked hard to raise them to a position of respect and importance in the joint family system. He urged them to develop their minds and to acquire some skill. Raja Ram Mohan Roy had a social conscience. He realized that it was his duty to improve the lives of Indian women.
    Florence Nightingale cared so much for others that she gave up a life of luxury to devote herself to nursing the sick and the wounded. Elizabeth Fry and Mother Teresa worked all their lives to change the pitiable conditions of prisoners, beggars and all who were less fortunate than them. Both of them dedicated their lives to the cause of the poor, sick, and the handicapped.
    You, too, must develop within yourself this feeling of concern for the welfare of others. We all cannot be Florence Nightingales or Mother Teresas but we can certainly develop the ability to be kind-hearted towards other people.
    What should you do when you see someone injured on the road?

    A) We should go past without looking or caring for him,          

    B) We should stop to help him.

    Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow:
    By the time he was nine years old, Aftab Solanki weighed 49 kilos, nearly twice the normal weight for boys his age. His doting parents and neighbours considered him "healthy", often describing or calling Aftab "cute".
    His sluggishness and increasing appetite, his periodic breathlessness, occasional dizzy spells and pain in the knees were all dismissed as things that would disappear once he grew up. "But as his weight kept increasing, we became concerned and wanted to consult a good doctor," says Aftab's father Mohammed Ramzan Solanki.
    Kids like Aftab are part of a fast-growing national urban epidemic seen over the past few decades. It's an irony that despite there being more undernourished children in India than in any other country, we also have millions of obese and overweight urban school children. And experts say these obese children will one day face severe medical consequences. Compared to children of normal weight, obese ones face several times the risk for developing high blood pressure, respiratory complications, Type-2 diabetes (the most common form of disease) cardiovascular disease and cancer and indeed, much reduced life-spans.
    "The medical consequences of obesity are seen at all ages, even among kids," says Dr. Vaman Khadilkar, consultant pediatric endocrinologist at Jehangir Hospital, Pune. "Our youngest Type-2 diabetic is six-year-old, while a hypertensive patient is just eight. High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides-both of which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease-are seen in children very frequently nowadays, unlike in the past. And we routinely see these high levels in obese children."
    Aftab's sluggishness, increasing appetite, pain in the knees etc. were all dismissed because of the expected_______once he grew up.

    A) disappeared of these conditions

    B) disappearance of these conditions

    C) appearance of these conditions

    The Palaeolithic remains have been found in all parts of India, especially in the Deccan. In ancient times, south of the Vindhya Mountain and the Narmada River, was known as Daksh in a path; now it is called the Deccan. There were two main cultures in the Paleolithic Age, the Sonnian and the Acheulian. Some tools from the Sonnian culture have been found in the Shivalik hills of the Indian subcontinent. Most Sonnian tools belong to late middle period found in past Shivalik sediments. Sonnian artifacts have been recovered in Pakistan.
    Acheulian sites have been divided in early Acheulian and late Acheulian, on the basis of the tools produced. Early Acheulian tools have been recovered at the edge of the Vindhya hills in the Narmada Basin. Flake tools were the major features of the late Acheulian Age. Small and medium size hand axes and cleavers were main tools of this age used for chopping meat. Various sites of Acheulian in the Deccan are excavated like Chirki-Nevasa, Guhox, Saswad, Nasre, Yeduwadi, Attirampakkam and Bhimbetka. Various Acheulian tools have been discovered from Nevasa, a tributary of the Godavari in Maharashtra.
    All this indicates that Nevasa was a popular habitation of the Palaeolithic man for a long time. From these stone tools we come to know about food and shelters of early man. One of these sites is Attirampakkam valley in the northwest of Tamil Nadu. Archaelogical research has discovered evidence of fossil remains of animals and primitive stone implements in the northern Tamil Nadu around 300,000 BC. Man in Deccan lived in this Palaeolithic period for a long time, using only crude implements.
    Which of the following was known as 'Dakshinpath' in ancient times?

    A) North to Narmada river

Various sites of Acheulian in the Deccan are excavated like Chirki-Nevasa, Guhox, Saswad, Nasre, Yeduwadi, Attirampakkam and Bhimbetka. Various Acheulian tools have been discovered from Nevasa, a tributary of the Godavari in Maharashtra.
    All this indicates that Nevasa was a popular habitation of the Palaeolithic man for a long time. From these stone tools we come to know about food and shelters of early man. One of these sites is Attirampakkam valley in the northwest of Tamil Nadu. Archaelogical research has discovered evidence of fossil remains of animals and primitive stone implements in the northern Tamil Nadu around 300,000 BC. Man in Deccan lived in this Palaeolithic period for a long time, using only crude implements.
     
    What can we know about the early man from the stone tools?
    We can know about their ________.
     

    A) food and shelters                        

    B) victims                 

    C) ways of entertainment

    Leonardo da Vinci (pronounced Vinchi) was one of the finest artists the world has ever known. He was a sculptor, architect, engineer and a pioneer of many scientific achievements. He was a genius whose many-sided talent has seldom, if ever, been matched in the history of the world.
    When Leonardo was eighteen, his father who was a lawyer, sent him to Florence to study painting under an artist named Verrocchio. Here he learned to make his own paints, prepare canvas, mix oils and to generally assist his master. He soon became a proficient painter. He had a vivid imagination and a great love of beauty.
    Leonardo soon became an independent artist. He used the backyard of his small house as a studio where he spent many hours sketching models in various poses. He practised endlessly to perfect his drawings of the human head, hands and body. At the same time, he took great interest in architecture and sculpture.
    At that time, Florence was the centre of Italian culture. A noble known as Lorenzo the Magnificent, who took a lively interest in arts and crafts, became Leonardo's patron and benefactor. He helped him to become well known in art circles.
    Leonardo was the first artist to fully appreciate the beauty of nature and the effect of light and shade. He refused to follow old, traditional rules and patterns and used his imagination and originality to create a new school of painting. He, however, did not stop there. He had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He not only studied the human body but also Animal anatomy, Ophthalmic (the science of the eyes), the Laws of muscular movements, and Botany. He was a pioneer in these sciences. His enquiring mind and desire to know the laws which govern everyday occurrences like the movement of waves and tides, opened up many fields of interest. Leonardo had not forgotten his love of music. He made a new kind of lute of silver which had a much sweeter sound than the lutes which were in use at that time. He loved to improvise or invent new tunes on the spur of the moment. He had an amazing ability to do things in new, original ways. He also liked to perfect whatever he did.
    Leonardo da Vinci was a many-sided talented person whose genius can_______be matched in the history of the world.

    A) never                           

    B) often   

    C) rarely

    Early Memory
    I remember picking up a fistful
    of sand, smooth crystals, like hourglass sand
    and throwing it into the eyes of a boy. Johny or
    Danny or Kevin - he was not important.
    I was five and I knew he would cry.
    I remember everything about it -
    The sandbox in the corner of the room
    at Cinderella Day Care; Ms. Lee,
    Who ran over after the boy wailed for his mother,
    Her stern look as the words No snack formed on her lips.
    My hands with their gritty, half-mooned fingernails.
    I hid in the pockets of my blue and white dress.
    How she found them and uncurled small sandy fists.
    There must have been such rage in me, to give such pain
    to another person. This afternoon,
    I saw a man pull a gold chain off the neck
    of a woman as she crossed the street.
    She cried out with a sound that bleached me.
    I walked on, unable to help,
    knowing that fire in childhood

    Did I let you know that I was near?
    Did I ever stop to say I care
