Those of us who have the happiness of being pupils of the true teachers know
what this teacher-taught relation ought to be. A teacher who tries to frighten his
students into doing what he wishes does not see that they only obey him while
he is there, and that as soon as they are out of his sight they will pay no
attention to his rules, or even take a pleasure in breaking them because they
dislike him. But if he draws them to do what he wants because they love him,
they will keep his rules even in his absence, and so make his work much easier.
Question 1 of 15-What main point is the author trying to make?
1. The good teacher remembers his own youth, and so can feel with the student
who comes to him.
2. The love of the teacher for his pupil will bring out love from the pupil in turn.
3. If the teacher loves the student, the question of punishment will never arise.
4. The wise teacher will gain his ends through love

The Mickey Mouse who hit the movie houses in the late twenties was not quite
the well-behaved character most of us are familiar with today. He was
mischievous, to say the least, and even displayed a streak of cruelty. But Mickey
soon cleaned up his act, leaving to gossip and speculation only his unresolved
relationship with Minnie. Mickey had become virtually a national symbol, and as
such was expected to behave properly at all times. If he occasionally stepped out
of line, any number of letters would arrive at the Studio from citizens and
organizations who felt that the nation's moral well-being was in their hands.
Eventually he would be pressured into the role of straight man
Question 2 of 15-Which of the following most accurately summarizes
the opinion of the author in the text?
1. Mickey Mouse was not the well-behaved character to start with.
2. The cartoon character Mickey's personality softened under public pressure.
3. Mickey's character changed as per needs of his movie appearance.
4. Mickey Mouse became a rage after he was introduced to the movie world.

How is the bookseller to tell what, in an enormous output, will prove saleable,
before the full weight of unsold items affects the balance of his business, and
how is he, at the same time, to hold a stock large enough to enable the public to
choose freely? He may seek to escape from this dilemma by becoming the
passive sales representative of large publishing houses or distribution networks,
but he is then no longer a bookseller. He may take refuge in the sale of safe
items to a restricted circle of customers, but he thereby cuts himself off from all

that is vital in his trade and dooms himself to mediocrity and stagnation. On the
other hand, he may protect his business from the danger of idle stock by
speculating on the latest publications, but this is a dangerous game in that it
implies a constantly changing clientele: readers remain faithful to their own
discoveries and failure to follow up a book; an author or a type of literature
means dismissing the public responsible for their success.
This brings us back to the fact that books are indefinable.
Question 3 of 15
Which of the following statements in respect of a bookseller are true as
per the text?
1. He can cut his losses and achieve sustained growth through stocking of safe
items.
2. The safest and most business friendly course for him is to become part of a
distribution network.
3. Speculating about the success of latest publications will be a relatively riskfree preposition.
4. He has to walk a tight rope.
5. Readers preferences have always to be kept into consideration.

The learning of a foreign language should be an integral part of every university
student's education. As a discipline, it affords the mind excellent training. It
utilizes skills needed in so many other subjects: the concentration required for
memorizing music (not to mention developing the ear for tone and pitch); the
logical thinking for resolving mathematical problems, even the deductive
reasoning capabilities needed to comprehend philosophical concepts. The mind
is stretched through the simple act of learning the grammatical patterns,
vocabulary and phonological system of a language. At the same time, the
student of a foreign language is acquiring a useful tool. This tool has a double
advantage, for while most people (especially teachers) expound on the rewards
of being able to communicate in a second, third or fourth language, perhaps the
more promising of the two, is being able to understand and hopefully appreciate
another cultural group through their literature, their music and customs all of
which are best assimilated through the medium of their language.
Question 4 of 15
Which of the following statements about learning of a foreign language
can be supported from the text?
1. It enhances minds orientation to art and music.
2. It helps explore scope for cultural compatibility.
3. It enhances easy and speedy comprehension of other subjects.

4. The more the number of languages one knows, the greater the level of
scholarship.
5. The benefits go well beyond the academics.

3. No one has yet excavated a complete dinosaur skeleton from this site near
Colville River or anywhere else in Alaska.
4. Most come from just the period lasting from 75 million to 70 million years ago,
some five million years before the famous mass demise of the planet`s
dinosaurs.
5. Nevertheless, paleontologists have been able to identify from partial
skeletons, isolated bones, teeth and fossil footprints, eight types of dinosaurs
that lived as contemporaries in the far north

1. Never stop thinking of ways to make your products better, but dont get stuck
trying to achieve perfection.
2. Release the product and, at the same time, continue to refine it.
3. Im not suggesting that it is ever acceptable to deliver shoddy products.
4. The longer you hold out for perfection, the less likely you are to achieve it, and
youll lose whatever competitive edge you may have.
5. The product that beats the competition is seldom the best, and its never
perfect.

In a variety of ways, Americans wanted to get rich, and to do so with little effort.
Thorstein Veblen published The Theory of the Leisure Class in 1898 and Blank
1 the theory of consumerism. The first commercial radio station went on air in
the 1920s in Pittsburgh. By 1922, 3 million American households had radios, and
the annual sales rose to $850 million by 1929. Motion picture industries became
one of the ten largest industries in the US. In 1922, theatres sold 40 million
tickets a week. A floodtide of new electric appliances, vacuum cleaners, toasters,
washing machines and refrigerators Blank 2 American houses. The automobiles
required better roads, the infrastructure was developed, new highways were

nation. Cars broke down the Blank 3 between the urban and rural America, a new

The stones we see today represent Stonehenge in ruin. Many of the original
stones have fallen or been removed by previous generations for home
construction or road repair. There has been serious Blank 1 to some of the
smaller bluestones resulting from close visitor contact (prohibited since 1978)
and the prehistoric carvings on the larger sarsen stones show signs of Blank 2
wear.
In its day, the construction of Stonehenge was an impressive engineering feat,
requiring commitment, Blank 3 and vast amounts of manual labour. In its first
phase, Stonehenge was a large earthwork; a bank and ditch arrangement called
a henge, constructed approximately 5,000 years ago. It is believed that the

In its most recent stages, Western science is finally coming back to the views of
the early Greek and the Eastern philosophies. This time, however; it is not only
based on Blank 1, but also on experiments of great precision and sophistication,
and on a rigorous and consistent mathematical formalism.
The roots of physics, as of all Western science, are to be found in the first period
of Greek Blank 2 in the sixth century B.C., in a culture where science, philosophy
and religion were not separated. The sages were not concerned with such
distinctions. Their aim was to Blank 3 the essential nature, or real constitution,
of things that they called physics. The term physics is derived from this Greek
word and meant therefore, originally, the endeavor of seeing the Blank 4 nature
of all things.

For a mildmannered people who are forever begging your pardon and saying
"please" and "sorry," British journalists are a surprisingly macho lot. The British
media may not have Blank 1 anything on the scale of Watergate but that is
because for all its warts British politics remains relatively less corrupt than across
the pond. In other words, the British political class has not given its journalists
enough Blank 2 to expose something which would sit in the same class as
Watergate.
Yet it has had its share of political scalps. At the best of times, there is a media
frenzy abroad, fed partly by the demands of the 24hour rolling TV news and
partly by a compulsive desire on the part of journalists to do "in" a government
which lives by "spin" and will go to any length to use them to mislead the
country. Beneath the Blank 3, there is perpetual tension with the two constantly
wrestling to out spin each other, resulting in a loss of Blank 4 for both. Opinion

polls show that an overwhelming majority of people do not believe a word of

Governments are encouraging the bio fuel industry by giving liberal Blank 2
such as cut in duties, tax brakes and subsidies. Both bio diesel and ethanol are
