    Read the following passages carefully and using the options provided, answer the questions that follow.
    Prem looked at his examination results slip with a heavy heart. He knew that he had disappointed his mother. One day, Prem was asked to come to the staff room. To his surprise, there was nobody there. But he suddenly noticed something jutting out of the record book. The words "Final Semester Test" were written on the paper. Prem's hand reached out for the paper, but he could not look at it. His mother had always emphasised that the labour of hard work was rewarding while dishonesty would only bring misfortune. Prem quickly turned away to leave the staff room. He was shocked to see his History teacher observing him. She was pleased that Prem had decided not to cheat. She offered to tutor him after school. Prem scored 2 A's and 3 B's in the final semester. His mother was very proud of him. Prem was glad that he had listened to his mother's advice.
    What, according to the passage, would have happened if he had not listened to his mother's advice ?

    A)  His mother would have been disappointed with him.

    B)               His mother would have scolded him.

    C)  His teacher would have punished him then and there.  

    D)  He would have failed in the final examination next year.

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

     According to the passage, only option [c] is correct. Refer to the sentence" He was shocked to see his History teacher observing him". [d] is not apt because from the passage, it cannot be inferred that just because he failed in one semester, he would fail in another semester.
