Passage - 1
In our approach to life, be it pragmatic or otherwise, basic fact that confronts us squarely and
unmistakenly s the desire for peace, security and happiness. Different forms of life at different level of
existence make up the teeming denizens of this earth of ours. And, no matter whether they belong to
the higher groups such as human beings or to the lower groups such as animals, all beings primarily

insect strives for protection against dangers that threaten its life. Just as each one of us wants to live
and not to die, so do all other creatures.

## 1. The author’s point is that

(A) different forms of life are found on earth
(B) different levels of existence are possible in nature

Passage - 2
In many of our schools, children who ‘complete’ Primary school are not fully functional in the language
that serves as the medium of their education. One would expect that a class VI student, almost twelve
years old with five years / of schooling behind him, would be able to read understand and write the
language. Unfortunately, surveys conducted among rural school children in the state reveal that this is
not the case. A majority of the school population was found to be at the frustration level in
understanding the texts. The surveys also reveal the enormous heterogeneity of the linguistic and
cultural background of the children, contrary to the belief that they all come from Hindi-speaking
backgrounds.

## 1. The phrase ‘not fully functional’ means that the children

(A) are not able to do any work on their own
(B) cannot read the textbook properly
(C) cannot write letters to their friends
(D) do not have any general knowledge

2. A class VI student who is twelve years old has ‘five years of schooling behind him’. This means that he
(A) has attended school for five years
(B) has skipped his primary school
(C) refuses to attach school till he is twelve
(D) does not attach any importance to primary education

## 3. The surveys conducted in the state reveal that

(A) there are very few primary schools in the rural areas
(B) there is no single medium of instruction for them
(C) all languages are taught in a haphazard manner
(D) the students cannot understand the textbooks

## 4. Before the surveys we had the belief that

(A) all the children were good students
(B) the schools taught Hindi very efficiently
(C) all the children spoke Hindi at home
(D) Hindi was a compulsory subject

5. In the given context, ‘the enormous heterogeneity of .... children’ is due to the fact that these children
(A) speak different languages
(B) come from various states
(C) belong to different classes of society
(D) come from different cultural milieux
Passage - 3
