33. I've played baseball ever since I could remember, but somehow, at fourteen, I still
wasn't very good at it. You'd think that ten years of summer leagues and two older
brothers who'd been the stars of their teams would have rubbed off on me, but you'd be
wrong. I mean, I wasn't completely hopeless. I was pretty fast, and I could hit my oldest
brother's fastball maybe three or four times out of ten, but I wasn't about to be scouted
for college teams.

My team that summer, the Bengals, wasn't anything special, either. We had one or two
pretty talented guys, but most, like me, were just barely what you could call decent. But
somehow we'd almost scraped through the first round of playoffs, with only one game
standing between us and semifinals. Predictably, the game had come down to the last
inning, the Bengals had two outs and players on second and third base, and it was my
turn at bat. It was like one of those moments you see in movies. The scrawny kid who
no one really believed in hits a miraculous home run, winning the big game for his
underdog team and becoming a local legend. Except my life wasn't The Sandlot, and
any hopes my teammates or coach might've had for a last-minute rally to victory were
crushed with my third swing-and-miss when the umpire sent me back to the dugout with
a "strike three - you're out!"

About a week later, some of my friends from the team got together at the park to hang
out. When I arrived, I was a little surprised that no one seemed to be mad at me - after
all, I'd lost the game, and they had to be disappointed about not making it to the
semifinals. It wasn't until we split into teams for an impromptu pickup game that I
started to realize why no one was upset. Maybe it was the excitement of reaching the
playoffs or the pressure of living up to my brothers' examples, but sometime during that
game, I'd lost sight of why most of us played summer league baseball. It wasn't to win
the championship, as cool as that would have been. It was because we all loved to play.
I didn't need a trophy or a Hollywood come-from-behind win to have fun playing
baseball with my friends, but maybe I needed to strike out to remember that.

Who wrote the story above?

A. A baseball player

B. The Bengals

C. The Sandlot

D. The brothers

35. e-Sports (alsoknownas electronicsports, competitive(video) gaming, professional


(video) gaming, or pro gaming) is a form of competition using video games. Most
commonly, e-Sports take the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions,
particularlybetween professional players. The most common video game genres
associated with e-Sports are real-time strategy, fighting, first-person shooter (FPS), and
multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). Tournaments such as The International, the
League of Legends World Championship, the Evolution Championship Series and the
Intel Extreme Masters provide live broadcasts of the competition, and prize money to
competitors. Although organized online and offline competitions have long been a part
of video game culture, these were largely between amateurs until the late 2000s when
participation by professional gamers and spectatorship in these events saw a large surge
in popularity. Many game developers now actively design toward a professional e-Sport
subculture.

Millions of people play games for fun. Some of them have become professional gamers,
playing games as their full-time job. It’s not easy being a professional gamer, though.
They practise for ten or more hours a day, five or six days a week. They do exercises
like typing something and trying to type it faster and faster. They also study videos of
other players and plan ways to beat them. As well as playing games, many people like
watching them too. Viewers can watch games on video sites like Twitch and YouTube
and in the UK there’s a TV channel showing e-Sports 24 hours a day. They can be
exciting to watch: just like other sports, there are close games, last-minute victories and
amazing performances. Sometimes online viewers can interact with the game. For
example, some games rename characters in the game with the names of online viewers.

43. Growing up on a small farm near Fairmount, Ind. (pop. 2,866), James Robert
Davis (born on July 28, 1945) figured he would follow in his father's footsteps and
become a farmer. But as severe bouts of asthma made that job seem unlikely, the
bedridden youngster began drawing to pass the time. It was the genesis for what would
become his career as a cartoonist and creator of one of America's best-loved characters-
Garfield the cat.
Davis wrote (or in some cases, co-wrote) all of the Garfield TV specials for CBS,
originally broadcast between 1982 and 1991; and was one of the producers behind
the Garfield & Friends Saturday Morning series, which aired on the channel from 1988

49. Dear Rohan,

I couldn’t believe my ears when your teacher called me yesterday and told me that you
had been caught cheating on your board examination. She also told me that you would
be barred from taking the examinations if you repeat the offence. The news was so
distressing that I couldn’t sleep properly last night.

My dear boy, it is a pity that you have resorted to such dishonest practices to score good
marks. How could you forget that success attained through unfair means is not a success
at all? By cheating on a test, you could perhaps pass, but it doesn’t give you any
knowledge. This lack of knowledge will ultimately lead to inferiority complex.
Remember that in the long run only honesty and hard work will pay.

Cheating on a test is heinous act. You must make a vow that you will not indulge in it
again.

Love,

Vishal
