CLASS VI - CBSE

DPP NO. 1
Direction (1 to 5) :Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below.
The camel is the oldest of domestic animals. It has been used for thousands of years, by the desert people
of Africa and Asia to supply many of their needs. On the fertile edges of the desert, camels pull ploughs, the
wheels to irrigate the fields and carry goods to market. In the desert itself, they are still almost the only
means of transport.
They supply food, milk and clothing in the form of wool and leather.
This useful animal is well adapted to life in harsh, arid lands. The Arabian camel has one hump; the Bactrian
camel has two. The hump is, in fact, a store of fat which is used as a source of energy when food and water
are scarce. The camel can take up to 100 litres of water in ten minutes.
The camel has broad, soft feet for a steady grip in the sand. A thick skin protects it from the fierce daytime
sun and bitterly cold nights. The camel's eyes have three eyelids to help keep out sand; its ears and nose
are also adapted to keep out sand storms. Often called 'The ships of the desert', they can carry loads of 200
kilos and more, travelling up to 160 kilometres a day.

1. Camel is the mainstay of the desert people of the world because it ____________.
(A) does many works relating to their life (B) ploughs
(C) transports things (D) supplies them many things

2. Without camels the life of the desert people shall stop because ____________.
(A) camels supply them many things (B) they do various duties
(C) they provide them with essential things (D) they are domestic animals

(A) they store it in their bodies (B) they don't have much thirst

(A) without them desert life is not possible (B) they do many jobs
(C) they help the desert people in many ways (D) they are never tired

## 5. The word 'fierce' means ____________.

(A) very much (B) great (C) very strange (D) very strong

Direction (6 to 10) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below.
In India, working women lead a life of dual responsibilities if they are married and have a family. In the West
many women are hard-headed careerists and are committed to their jobs. Here in India women still have
traditional roles to fulfil and prefer a career to avoid domestic drudgery.
There are four categories of working women in India. Some work while they are waiting for matrimony. A
majority work because they are qualified, want a second income and a different kind of life for part of the day.
A small section consists of career-women. A sizeable section of women are bread-winners.
It is quite apparent that with a majority of working women the family becomes secondary over the job. They
prefer to stay in joint families where their children can be taken care of while they are at work. When they
come back in the evenings from the relatively modern surroundings of their work-spots, their personalities
have to undergo a change to accommodate the demands of their time and attention by different family
members whose powerful feelings are of having been neglected.

## 6. The dual life of Indian working women is ____________.

(A) domestic drudgery (B) serving their children and husbands
(C) married life's duties (D) jobs and domestic responsibilities

7. A major number of Indian working women work ____________.
