ENGLISH
Time: 3 Hours Total Marks: 80
Section ‘A’
(Prose)
(Reading Skills, Vocabulary, Grammar)
Q.1. (A) Read and understand the following passage and complete the activities given below. [10]
In the book Anirudh’s dream, the reader is transported to the mist-clad mountains
surrounding Khadakvasla dam near Pune. The initial part of the adventure is set in the
sprawling and green campus of National Defence Academy (NDA). The author is successful
in recreating the charm and spirit of a rainy day on the Khadakvasla lake beautifully. There is
action, emotion, courage, presence of mind and friendship that are depicted in this tale of
adventure. After the initial sail boat race at Khadakvasla, the scene shifts to the mountain
forts of Sahyadri with a bit of Shivaji Maharaj’s history added to the trekking adventure. The
observations of the author pertaining to the flora, fauna and culture of the place are very
minute. Dialogues throughout the book are lively. Suddenly there is a twist in the storyline
and the characters and locations change in flashback that is shown as a dream sequence. The
reader is transported back to the old world colonial charm of Mumbai and its surroundings
that were teeming with greenery and wildlife in those times (probably 150 years ago). The
main protagonist − Anirudh (Irfan in the dream sequence, which sounds like the past birth of
Anirudh) is a mixed personality, daring in some situations and afraid in others. His band of
friends completes a youthful spirit of adventure.

i. The initial part of the adventure is set in the sprawling and green campus of ________.

3. Read the passage and find out words of similar meaning: [2]
i. change ii. animals
iii. daring experience iv. reconstructing

4. Frame two sentences of your own using ‘after’ and ‘back’. [2]

5. Do you like trekking? Why? [2]

(B) Read and understand the following passage and complete the activities given below. [10]
The next morning was unnaturally uneventful. We lazed around all day, my sister
watching cartoons on the idiot box and I reading a Jeffrey Archer. Throughout, my mind kept
wandering back to that morning.
At around noon, Grandma left home with my sister in town, to buy vegetables. The
moment the door banged shut, Grandpa abandoned his newspaper, and called me to his room.
“Beta”, he called out, “help me with these… sort these papers out. One-Side-used over here,
both-sides-used here, and blank papers here.” The work was easy, but time-consuming.
“What are you going to do with these, Grandpa?” I asked him, trying my best to sound
non-accusatory.
“These computer people don’t respect paper. Everyday, they throw away all these
sheets. They’ve given me the keys to open the gate for the sweeper when he comes at 6 am.
He takes and gives them to the kabadiwala, who disposes them carelessly. So, instead, I do
half his job for him.”
I was amazed by how much importance he was giving to such a trivial matter.
Everyday, my friends and I would waste hundreds of sheets at the drop of a hat.
Pointing to the ‘used up pile’, which was the smallest, he said, “These, I’ll give to the
moori wala downstairs. I’ll use the one-side-used papers for my accounts, and also give some
to the poor children at the NGO. They practice maths on them.”
I was shocked. I learned that the old man had been doing this for months now. This
wasn’t any spying mission, but a real, concrete, genuine effort to save paper and the planet.
I stared at the septuagenarian in awe. No school education on the environment had ever
made an impression on me or my classmates or anyone, so to speak. But his lone endeavour
made me realize it all. For the first time, I truly understood.

Questions:
1. State whether the following statements are true or false. [2]
i. The next morning was naturally eventful.
ii. The writer’s sister was reading Jeffrey Archer.
iii. The writer’s Grandma left home with his sister in town, to buy vegetables.
iv. The writer’s Grandpa said that the computer people did not respect paper.

2. Fill in the blanks with appropriate words from the passage. [2]
i. At around noon, Grandma left _______ with my sister in town, to buy vegetables.
ii. I was amazed by how much importance he was giving to such a ________ matter.

ii. pile a sudden upsetting or surprising experience

iv. genuine a number of things lying on top of one another.

ii. Grandpa abandoned his newspaper. He called me to his room.
5. Write your opinion about ‘Saving paper’. [2]

Q.2. (A) Read the passage and complete the activity given below. [10]

The Ajanta caves, we were told, lay in the side of a ravine in wild and desolate country
some 350 miles to the north-west, at the extreme tip of Hyderabad state where it touches the
Bombay Province. Properly speaking they were not caves at all, but temples which had
excavated from the living rock by Buddhist monks. These monks had first come to the ravine
somewhere in the second century before Christ and they had begun by hacking out the rock
by hand and hurling it down into the river below. Then, probably with large mirrors to reflect
the sunshine from the ravine outside, they set about the decoration of walls, the doorways and
the ceilings. They continued for the next eight hundred years, always painting and sculpturing
Lord Buddha, but setting him against an idyllic background of folk tales and the everyday life
of their own time. In much the same way as in the Italian Renaissance which over a thousand
years later, the work was subsidised by wealthy merchants and the princes of the surrounding
countryside.
Questions:
1. Choose the correct alternative and complete the sentences. [2]
i. Properly speaking they were not _________ at all.
a. temples b. rocks c. caves

ii. They continued for the next _________ hundred years.
a. seven b. eight c. six

2. Provide a meaningful and catchy title to the given passage and justify it. [2]
3. Write from the passage the words of similar meaning. [2]
i. bleak and empty
ii. remove earth from an area to find buried remains.

4. Do as Directed [2]
i. They had begun by hacking out the rock by hand and hurling it down into the river
below. (Change the voice)
ii. The work was subsidised by the wealthy merchants and the princes of the surrounding
countryside. (Rewrite using ‘not only ………. but also’)
5. What are your impressions of the writer from reading this passage? [2]

(B) Read the passage and complete the activity given below. [10]

Quite often, it is not the names of places, but people who are responsible for
misguiding the new arrivals, making them end up at wrong places. I have come across
different types of such ‘guides’ – well intentioned, overfriendly, rather confused, reticent and
even rude.
The overfriendly type most of the time is not very helpful. “Where is Banyan Tree
Street?” you ask him. He takes a long look at you, “Are you new to this place?” he asks. You
nod. The overfriendly type asks more questions of a personal nature. “Oh you are going to
meet Govindaswamy. I know his cousin’s brother-in-law who went to college with my elder
brother’s second cousin.”
Questions:
1. Choose the correct option and complete the sentence. [2]
i. The overfriendly type most of the time is ____________.
a. not very useful

b. not very helpful

c. not very caring

ii. The overfriendly type asks more questions of ____________.
a. a political nature

b. a religious nature

c. a personal nature

2. Complete the sentences using suitable responses. [2]
i. Quite often, it is not the names of places, but people who are responsible for
misguiding the new arrivals, __________________________.

ii. The overfriendly type most of the time is not very helpful because ____________.

3. i. Choose a word from the passage opposite in meaning to the given word [1]
a. demonstrating

b. polite

ii. Write the adjective from the passage which are used for the following nouns. [1]
a. places

b. guides

4. Prepare two ‘Wh’questions to get the underlined part as the answer. [2]
i. I have come across different types of such guides.
ii. The overfriendly type most of the time is not very helpful.

5. What do you know about guides? Have you ever come in contact with a guide? What was
your experience? [2]

There was a roaring in the wind all night;
The rain came heavily and fell in floods;
But now the sun is rising calm and bright,
The birds are singing in the distant woods;
Over his own sweet voice the Stock-dove broods;
The Jay makes answer as the Magpie chatters;
And all the air is filled with pleasant noise of waters.
All things that love the sun are out of doors;
The sky rejoices in the morning’s birth;
The grass is bright with raindrops−on the moors
The hare is running races in her mirth;
And with her feet she from the plashy earth
Raises a mist; that, glittering in the sun,
Runs with her all the way, wherever she doth run.

Tell me is it right
That we sleep well at night

For tomorrow’s greedy fight

And when good food goes to waste
The valleys of the earth bury their paste

Our world is an institution
Of environmental pollution
We choose not to care
For our future generations
