As you want to get the model question papers of Kerala State SSLC Examination, so here I am providing the following model papers:

Kerala State SSLC Model Paper English

Read the following passage from ‘Tea-shops in Malayalam Cinema’ and
answer the questions that follow.
A customer at a tea-shop was regarded as simply an individual, not as a member
of particular caste or community. These individuals were also, in a sense, selfexiled
from their families. Persons who were considered worthless or
insignificant in their families often achieved a certain dignity at a tea-shop. In
serving as a space for free interaction of individuals who come from diverse
social backgrounds, a tea-shop is no different from a cinema theatre. The
atmosphere of a tea-shop often becomes tastier than the tea and snacks served!
It is, therefore, not surprising that tea-shops played and continue to play, a
significant role in energising the narrative of many Malayalam films.
1. What does the expression ‘simply an individual’ imply?
2. Why is the tea-shop a favourite hang-out for some people?
3. How, according to the author, does the tea-shop energise the narrative of
many Malayalam films?
4. What sort of people are considered ‘worthless and insignificant’ in their
families?
5. How, according to the author is ‘a tea-shop no different from a theatre’?
6. Categorise the words given in brackets into two and complete the table
below.
(insignificant, particular, regard, diverse, consider, come)



Sample Questions - English Standard X 4
Question II
Competencies: Reads and analyses literary pieces
Uses language elements contextually
Read the following passage from ‘Tea-shops in Malayalam Cinema’ and
answer the questions that follow.
The small wayside restaurants located mostly in villages and popularly known
as ‘tea-shops’, played a crucial role in making panthibhojanam a way of life in
Kerala. The tea-shops were the products of two important social changes that
were taking place at the time. One was the increasing freedom of movement in
public spaces acquired by the depressed sections of society. The other was the
emergence of an economy based on money. The tea-shop came into existence
at a time when wages began to be paid in cash, rather than in kind. It was also
the time when people were beginning to travel beyond the boundaries of their
villages to sell what they produced in their fields or small workshops.
1. In what ways do ‘tea-shops’ play a crucial role in Kerala’s social life?
2. When, according to the author, did tea-shops become a common thing in
Kerala?
3. Look at the sentence, ‘One was the increasing freedom of movement in public
spaces acquired by the depressed sections of society.’ In the sentence ‘one’
is used instead of a noun phrase. Write the noun phrase that can replace
‘one’ in the sentence.
4. How were wages paid in the past? Cite an example for such a payment
system.

Read the following passage from ‘Tea-shops in Malayalam Cinema’ and

one also finds local toughs, political workers and, of course, a host of strangers

at the tea-shop. The sheer variety of the customers and the possible activities -
reading newspapers, exchanging local news, discussing politics, gossiping or
just chatting - makes the tea-shop an ideal place to reveal the ‘messages’ and
concerns of the film. In every film which depicts the conflict between the
individual/family and society, the tea-shop, one can say, is a prominent
character.
1. Why is ‘tea-shop’ a favourite space for many customers?
2. What purpose do tea-shop scenes serve in films?
3. The variety of food served in a local tea-shop is very limited. But it offers
other two varieties. What are they?

connects two noun phrases.

He wanders among the trees, his eyes roving. He stops on seeing clouds of mist rising
from the ground a little away. As the boy watches intently, shapes emerge from the

A procession led by the groom and the bride with others in tow is on its way. The boy
watches, hidden from behind a tree. There is music in the background. The procession

that encloses a dagger. The boy draws out the dagger and then puts it back into the
sheath.
Mother: You are supposed to kill yourself. Go quickly and ask their forgiveness.

Thou wilt surely not contaminate thy lips by speaking to a common beggar

ought to pay him two millions. If I do pay him, it is all over with me: I shall be
utterly ruined.’
Fifteen years before, his millions had been beyond his reckoning; now he
was afraid to ask himself which were greater, his debts or his assets. ‘Cursed
bet!’ muttered the old man, clutching his head in despair, ‘Why didn’t the
man die? He is only forty now. He will take my last penny from me, he will
marry, will enjoy life, will gamble on the Exchange; while I shall look at him
with envy like a beggar, and hear from him every day the same sentence: ‘I

conversations. Among other things they had talked of capital punishment.
The majority of the guests, among whom were many journalists and intellectual

and a shaggy beard. His face was yellow with an earthy tint in it, his cheeks
were hollow, his back long and narrow and the hand on which his shaggy
head was propped was so thin and delicate that it was dreadful to look at it.

face, no one would have believed that he was only forty. He was
asleep.... In front of his bowed head there lay on the table a sheet of paper on
which there was something written in fine handwriting.
‘Poor creature!’ thought the banker, ‘he is asleep and most likely dreaming of

find no sign of a violent death. But let us first read what he has written here...’

Question XI
Competencies: Reads and analyses literary pieces
Uses apt vocabulary
Read the following passage from the speech, ‘Art that Heals’ and answer
the questions that follow:
One of my parents’ deepest fears, I suspect, was that society would not properly
value me as a musician, that I wouldn’t be appreciated. I had very good grades
in high school, I was good in science and math, and they imagined that as a
doctor or a research chemist or an engineer, I might be more appreciated than
I would be as a musician. On some level, I think, my parents were not sure
themselves what the value of music was, what its purpose was. And they
loved music, they listened to classical music all the time. They just weren’t
really clear about its function. We live in a society that puts music in the ‘arts
and entertainment’ section of the newspaper. Serious music, the kind your
kids are about to engage in, has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with
entertainment. In fact it’s the opposite of entertainment. Let me talk a little bit
about music, and how it works.

Sample Questions - English Standard X 12
1. Who is the ‘I’ referred to in the passage above?

that supports your view.

of somebody’.
6. What is the attitude of the society towards music?

creates his own spy gear. He also put in a model car kit and his stuffed
bear. He was ready to go! Going to visit his grandfather for a week was
always Ben's favourite part of summer vacation. Grandpa would take
him fishing and to baseball games. Grandpa also taught Ben how to fix
things around the house. Last year, when he was eight-years-old, Ben
had learned how to replace a broken doorknob and how to fix a leaky tap.
Grandpa was patient and did not mind taking many hours to show Ben
how to use his tools. Ben's mom came to his bedroom door. 'Grandpa's
here,' she said with a smile. Ben grabbed his backpack and ran into the

he kissed his mother good-bye, he felt his stomach rumble. 'We can eat
later!'

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
CLOCKS
The clock is a very old invention. Sundials were used in ancient times.
Sundials work by measuring shadows that are cast by the sun. Candle
clocks were used a very long time ago. Candle clocks work by measuring
the time it takes for the wax to melt. Hourglasses are similar to candle
clocks because they also measure the time it takes for something to happen.
Hourglasses work by measuring the time it takes for sand to pour through
a small opening into a glass. Mechanical clocks appeared in the 13th
century in Europe. They work with a system of moving gears. The gears
Sample Questions - English Standard X 21
always move at the same speed. Pendulum clocks work with a swinging
weight. The swinging weight is called pendulum. The pendulum makes
the clock parts move. Now people typically use mechanical clocks or

Question IV
Competencies: Reads and analyses unfamiliar text
Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
I arrived at the address and honked the horn. 'Just a minute', answered a
frail, elderly voice. After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman
in her eighties stood before me. She was wearing a faded silk sari and a
frill blouse, with a colourful shawl wrapped around her neck, like
somebody straight out of a 1970's family movie. By her side was a small
plastic suitcase. The house looked as if no one had lived in it for years.
'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said.
I took the suitcase to the cab. She took my arm and we walked slowly
toward the cab. She kept thanking me for my kindness.
'It's nothing', I told her. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would
want my mother treated.'
'Oh, you're such a good guy,' she said.
When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could
you drive me through the city? It's not the shortest way.'
'Oh, I don't mind,' I said.

Sample Questions - English Standard X 22
'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to an old age home,' she said.
I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening.
'My kids are far away, I don't have anyone here to take care of me,' she
continued in a soft voice. 'The doctor says I don't have very long.'
I quietly reached over and shut off the meter. 'What route would you like
me to take?' I asked.
For the next few hours, we drove through the city. She showed me the
building where she had once worked as a bank clerk. We drove through
the neighbourhood where she had lived before she got wed. She showed
me the park, where she walked hand in hand with the man she loved.
She had me pull up in front of a mall that had once been a wedding hall
where her kids had been married off. At the first hint of the sun dipping
below the horizon, she said, 'I'm tired. Let's go now'.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low block of
buildings. I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door.
'How much do I owe you?' she asked, reaching into her purse.
'Nothing,' I said 'You have to make a living,' she answered.
'There are other passengers,' I responded.
Almost without thinking, I held her hands and gave them a squeeze. She
held onto mine tightly. 'You gave an old woman a little moment of
unforgettable joy,' she said.
'Thank you.' I squeezed her hand, and then walked away into the fading
light. Behind me, a door shut.
1. Why does the narrator feel that the woman was 'somebody straight out of a
1970's family movie'?
2. What made the driver shut off the meter?
3. Pick out any two sentences/ expressions from the story that indicate the

MEMORIES
Memories of the past have something to do with tragedies: pain, insult,
loss, grief...
When I was a child, I was a good marksman. I was adept at aiming at any
mango or cashew fruit and bringing it down with stones. Once, while I
was going to school, I saw an owl on a tree. I don't know what came over
me. I aimed and threw a stone at it. And it dropped to the ground dead.
This painful memory has stayed with me since then and still haunts me.
There are many things in life that you can't repair later. Our house was in
the middle of a large garden with a variety of trees-mango, cashew,
coconut, arecanut, jackfruit, tamarind. There was hardly any tree I had
not climbed. Once on top of the tree I would forget about the laws of
gravitation. And naturally it was normal routine for me to fall off them.
As it became a regular affair, my mother kept a dish of herbal oil handy
so that she could take it with her every time she rushed to the spot where
I hit the ground with a big thud.
1. Why does the narrator call himself a good marksman?
2. What is the haunting memory that still pains the narrator?
3. What happened when the narrator forgot the laws of gravitation?
4. What made the narrator's mother keep a dish of herbal oil?
5. ‘Memories of the past have something to do with tragedies.’ How does the
narrator prove this?
