    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    According to the scriptures, one way to live a pure, honest and violence-free life is to have meals that are 100 percent vegetarian, contain cereals, grains, fruits and consumable dairy products. The scriptures term such food as satvik, one which is believed to induce pure thoughts.
    With Janmashtami just a day away, the meals all around tend to take a satvik hue. At Deepa Kher's Culinary Academy Deepa and her daughter, Ambika showed that satvik food can be sumptuous too which one can consume when one is fasting. "Many people do not know what food to make for Janmashtami and how exactly to make it. We have come up with delicious satvik recipes that can be cooked at home on this auspicious day One can also invite others to taste the same like you do on Diwali and Holi," said Deepa. Lord Krishna is believed to have been fond of curd and milk so the main focus here is on dishes prepared from these. On the menu are nariyal cutlets, potatoes in Kaju magaz masala, makhaane ki kheer, dhaniya panjiri nariyal magaz prasad, apple malpuas and mishti srikhand.
    Satvik food is simple and easily digestible. It is cooked with minimal heat, does not involve extensive processing and hence, is usually closest to the way food items exist in their natural form. Satvik food is usually eaten fresh and immediately after it is prepared.
    As per the above passage what is the way to live a pure and violence free life?

    A) To have non-vegetarian meals

    B) To take yoga classes

    C) To take alcohol daily

    D) To have vegetarian meals

    E)  None of these

    Adilabad Fort is one of the lesser known of the many forts dotting the capital's landscape. Delhi may be known as the city of tombs and forts, but this 14th century edifice located in the outskirts of the city lies neglected and almost forgotten. Built by Mohammad-bin-Tughlaq, Adilabad Fort is referred to by historians as the fourth fort of Delhi, in the footsteps of famous contemporaries like Red Fort, Old fort and the adjacent Tughlaqabad Fort. But despite being under the protection of the Archeological Survey of India (ASI), Adilabad Fort remains a rare, hidden treasure of Delhi with very few people even aware of its existence. The first obstacle any visitor wanting to explore the fort faces is the lack of proper access. Even asking locals in Tughlaquabad area for directions elicit blank looks. The only sure way of finding the way to Adilabad Fort is by asking ASI officials at the ticket counter of Tughlaquabad Fort. The road is not easy. A maze of Kuchha paths lead to the beautiful fortress located southeast of Tughlaqabad Fort, partially hidden by foliage and undergrowth. The first thing that strikes one is the absence of the blue ASI board at the site, as well as the fact that there seems to be no caretaker around. Though one of the oldest forts in the capital and one of the remaining examples of Tughlaq-era architecture, Adilabad Fort has managed to remain elusive for years. Completely overshadowed by Ghiyasuddin Tughlaq's Fort. As it is not that too many people visit Tughlaqabad Fort, so its only once in a blue moon that Adilabad gets a visitor. Most people have not even heard of it, said the lone ASI official at Tughlaqabad.
    Where is Adilabad Fort located ?

    A) In Mumbai

    B) In Delhi

    C) In Chennai

    D) In Kolkata
