    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    In spite of all the honours that were heaped upon him, Pasteur, as it has been said, remained simple at heart. Perhaps, the imagery of his boyhood days, when he drew the familiar scenes of this birthplace and his longing to be a great artist, never wholly left him.
    In truth, he did become a great artist, although he abandoned the brush forever after the age of 16.
    Like every artist of worth, he put his whole soul and energy into his work, and it was this very energy that in the end wore him out. For him, each sufferer was something more than just a case that has to be cured. He looked upon the fight against hydrophobia as a battle and he was absorbed in his determination to win.
    The sight of injured children particularly moved him to an indescribable extent. He suffered with this patients and yet he would not deny himself a share in their suffering. His greatest grief was when sheer physical exhaustion made him give up his active work. But even then, in that pain, he loved to see his former pupils and its was then that he would reiterate his life's principles, that is never cease to work. So well had he kept his percept that he rapidly began to sink from exhaustion.
    Finally, on September 27, 1895, when someone leaned over his bed to offer him a cup of milk, he said sadly, "I cannot". With a look of perfect resignation and peace, he seemed to have fallen asleep. He never again opened his eyes to the cares and suffering of the world, which he had done so much to relieve and to conquer. He was within three months of his seventy-third birthday.
    (i) How did Pasteur view those who suffered from diseases?
    (ii) What tells us that he wanted to become an artist?
    (iii) Elaborate the phrase "cannot" in context with the article.
    (iv) What was his greatest grief?

    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    Water is one of the most precious gifts of nature, but it is unfortunate that we do not understand its worth and over-exploit this resource for our selfish purposes. It is a matter of serious attention that water must be conserved at all costs. We need water for daily use at home and for agriculture.
    Drinking water is however limited as we get it mainly from the clouds and glaciers. If this resource is used wisely, then there will be no problem. But unfortunately, it is being over-exploited. Our ever-increasing population has created scarcity of water. It is predicted that by the year 2025, nearly two billion people will live in absolute water scarcity. This is a signal to be cautious enough in the use of water. Every drop of water is precious and it must not go in vain. Water shortage is a grim reality for the cities as well as villages. We need to wake up to it now than be sorry later. We must conserve water in ponds and tanks. We should try our best to use water cautiously. If we continue to use it recklessly, we will have to face dire consequences. By saving water, we will save ourselves.
    (i) Why is water the most precious gift of nature?
    (ii) What is the main cause of water scarcity?
    (iii) How do you think we can conserve water?
    (iv) What will be the result of using water carelessly?
