Greeting cards are still the preferred choice when it comes to sending
greetings appropriately. Family members, especially adults like
grandparents, great uncles and aunts would appreciate cards rather
than an SMS greeting. Festivals are opportunities for companies to
send greetings to all their staff, customers and clients. It would not be
appropriate in this case to send an SMS. Moreover, receiving an SMS
is still not comparable to receiving a greeting card. We are all humans
driven by emotion and when a sender makes the effort to send a card,
it matters a lot to the receiver.

Based on the text, which of the following would most probably not mind receiving an SMS greeting?
A Friends
B Relatives
C Employees
D Casual acquaintances

A The sender is sensitive and caring.
B The sender is responsible and careful.
C The sender is insensitive and careless.
D The sender is fastidious and meticulous.

Questions 26 31 are based on the following passage.
1

To stay well hydrated, fluids play an important role in our body. With a demanding lifestyle,
the intake of fluids is often overlooked until the point of dehydration. Until you suffer from a
sweating brow and a parched mouth, you probably dont give much thought to fluids.
Events Highlight
Establishing a fluid plan, like a healthy eating plan, is important in ones daily life. Fluid intake
can vary from water, fruit or vegetable juices, isotonic drinks, milk and water-laden fruits and
5
vegetables.
The average adult loses about one or two litres of fluid daily through perspiration,
urination, breathing and bowel movements. We lose more fluids if we are physically
active.
20 ____________________
While the individual needs do vary depending on body weight, climate and activity level, it is
____________________
generally recommended that we drink at least eight glasses (based on 240 ml per
glass) per day, 10
which will
make
up
to
two
litres
of
fluids.

levels of fluid intake adequate. Every part of our body, from the individualcell
to the entire
circulation system, depends on fluid. Our kidneys, which filter out impurities from the
Farm Visits
bloodstream and excrete it through urine needs a minimum of one litre of fluid to function
15
properly. Without fluid, an individual will die within three days, whereas we
survive for up

Thirst is not a good indicator of the fluid requirement for an individual. In fact, it is a
sign that the body has entered a mild dehydration state. It is important that we replenish our
_______________________
body even before thirst sets in. Fluids_______________________
in moderate amounts should be drunk for every hour of
20
the working day. Some people overlooked fluid intake for different reasons. Some forget, some
say it is too troublesome while others say they do not want to go the toilet so frequently.
Nowadays, theres such a variety of fluids to choose from. Water, the old time great
choice can be drunk warm or cold. A slice of lemon added to water is such a refreshing change.
A glass of milk comes with calcium, protein and fluid altogether. Isotonic drinks are good for

code sweat is inevitable and especially
those who are active or engage in prolonged activity. They promote hydration by increasing
palatability. Fresh fruit or vegetable juices are a good way to start the day as they provide
_______________________
_______________________
vitamins and minerals. Fruit and vegetables in their original form contain up to 70 to 80 %
water. Tea, whether green, black or oolong, has been shown to contain flavonoids.
30
So, how do we make sure we get enough fluids? Drink a variety of fluids to prevent
boredom or taste bud fatigue. Leave a mug or container of fluid on your worktable and
replenish your mug frequently. When you stop for a break, take a drink to cool yourself. Carry
a drink with you wherever you go in your car or in your bag. If you are exercising or if the
weather is very hot, remember to flood your body with more fluids.
