    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:               
    In 1947, Ken Arnold, a pilot/ saw something very strange. While flying/ he looked out of the window and saw nine saucer-like objects flying past/ in line. Each 'saucer', a hundred feet wide, was travelling at a great speed-around 1200 miles per hour. What were these objects?
    After he landed, Arnold reported what he had seen. Scientists seemed to have no answer. So, the objects came to be known as "Unidentified Flying Objects" or "UFO's".
    Since 1947 more than 60/000 UFO's have been reported. The US Air Force checked out the reports of 11/109 UFO sightings and found that 94% or 10/432 of these reports were 'misidentified7. That is, people mistook stars, flights of geese, comets, meteors, sunlight on clouds, weather balloons, satellites and other such objects for UFOs.
    But there are reasons to believe that UFO's have been actually sighted. One astronomer saw a UFO in broad daylight while travelling by train. The UFO was flying parallel to the train. He could see it for four or five minutes/ before it rose out of sight and disappeared.
    While most sights described as UFOs turn out to be misidentified as known natural and artificial phenomena, many hundreds do not. It is these that form the core of the UFO mystery. That UFOs constitute a distinct category of describable sights is based on hundreds of highly detailed and consistent descriptions by professionals (especially airline and military pilots) of their close-up, broad daylight observations of unique flying machines.
    Careful review of the vast array of relevant evidence clearly leads to the conclusion that some unidentified flying objects are intelligently controlled vehicles/ whose origin is outside our solar system. All the arguments against the extra-terrestrial origin seem to be based upon false reasoning, misrepresentation of evidence, negligence of relevant information, ignorance of relevant technology/or pseudo sophisticated assumptions about alien appearance, motivation, or government secrecy.
    (i) How was the term - UFO coined?
    (ii) Why most reports were called 'misidentifications'?
    (iii) What reasons does the writer give us that UFOs exist?
    (iv) What does careful review of these sightings suggest?
    (v) What is meant by 'distinct'? (Para 5)
    (vi) What is meant by 'neglect'? (Para 6)
    (vii) Find the word opposite in meaning to 'unrelated?. (Para 6)
    (viii) Find the word opposite in meaning to 'natural'. (Para 5)

    The Third Voyage of Sindbad The Sailor
    I had a horrible experience during my third voyage. It so happened that the ship in which we were sailing was caught in a violent storm. The ship was dragged ashore by hairy savages who ordered us to vacate the ship and then they took the ship to an unknown Island. Soon we came to a palace like building and on entering one of its room we were struck with horror at the repulsive display of crude things - heaps of men's bones, a large number of skewers/ for roasting joints of meat/ were scattered. Suddenly there appeared a terrible ogre in the room with a roar. The big monster was as tall as a tree and had a huge eye in the middle of his forehead. His ears flapped down like those of an elephant.

    (ii) Who dragged the ship ashore and what did they do?
    (iii) What did Sindbad and his companions see on entering one of the rooms in the palace?
