Entrance Tests Model Paper
Five-Year Integrated M. A. [B.A. (Honours)]
English Programme

Time: 2hrs Max. Marks:100
Section A (40 Marks)
I. Fill in the blanks with appropriate words. The first letter of the appropriate word in
each case has been provided to help you. (10x1=10)
In every society, whether traditional or 1m____________, age is an indicator of the roles which a person is 2e____________ to play. In Western cultures, for 3e____________, we restrict certain activities such as the consumption of 4l____________, to those over a 5c______________ age. Becoming legally an 6a____________ is a matter solely of attaining a given chronological status. Subsequently, we pass 7t____________ various age-related status positions – middle-aged, elderly, etc. At each point we tend to form bonds and affiliations more readily with other 8m___________ of the particular age set we have reached than with members of 9o___________ age sets. Teenagers bond with 10 t_____________; the elderly find new opportunities for social ties in the clubs and institutions which cater for them.

II. Read the passage and answer the questions that follow. In each case, choose the best option.
Contrary to appearances, all the world does not know English. As many as six thousand languages are spoken, although it’s sadly true that the number drops every year. In some respects, languages are analogous to organisms like plants and animals. If, like plants and animals, their populations dwindle enough, they become extinct.
English is not on the endangered list. It ranks second among mother tongue speakers and is the world’s premier auxiliary language. A December 2000 survey found that 56 percent of fifteen European Union member countries spoke English, 40 percent as acquired language. Nearly all countries’ TV ads were partly in English. English is an official language in more than forty countries and an ‘associate’ official language in India and Pakistan.
English speaking countries, notably the United States and Britain, are accused of linguistic imperialism, even cultural genocide. But no matter how much English is used in business and the mass media, those who have it as a second language typically rely on their own tongue to communicate anything to do with family, friendship, and love. Although English is the dominant language in the Internet, it’s been estimated that more than 60 percent of those online have a different language.
Nonetheless, the dream of the nineteenth-century Polish medical doctor Ludovic Zamenhof has been fulfilled, but not in the way he hoped. Zamenhof invented Esperanto (from a Romance language root for ‘hope’), which was devoid of irregular verbs and almost free of tricky idioms. About three-quarters of its vocabulary derives from Romance languages. (An Esperanto sentence handy for customers is ‘Mi preferas plendi, dankon’ meaning ‘I prefer to complain, thanks.’) Esperanto has about fifty thousand fluent speakers.
In the 1940s, C. K. Ogden and I. A. Richards compiled Basic English, a word list that consists of 850 words: one hundred for operations (come, be), four hundred for general things (motion, mountain), two hundred picturables (angle, sail), one hundred general qualities (able, free), fifty opposites (bitter, loud, hard, soft) with a few simple rules. But, although, it strongly influenced language teaching, Basic English didn’t fare any better than Esperanto in becoming a universal medium.
(Questions 11 to 15) Say whether the following statements are True or False (5x1=5)
11. Languages and life forms all behave in the same way. ……...
12. The passage suggests that non-native speakers of English prefer their own language to express emotions.……...
13. More people have English as a second language than any other. ……...
14. Zamenhof wanted to invent a language that did not have the peculiarities of English. ……...
15. In the opinion of the writer, cultural genocide is worse than linguistic imperialism. ……...
(Questions 16 to 20) For each of these questions choose the best option and right its number in the brackets provided. (5x1=5)

B. most people in these countries know some English.
C. an English word in the ad guarantees sales.
D. people demand that some English words be present in the ad.

A. He chose words that are easy to remember. B)He kept out English words.
C. He excluded idioms and irregular verbs. D)He anticipated all the language problems that a person can face.
19. What is the dominance of English based on? [ ]

B. English is peculiarly suited to the needs of the modern world.
C. English is quietly establishing itself by co-existing with other languages.
D. The Internet ensures that English spreads all over the world.
20. What does the passage suggest is a guarantee that other languages will survive the onslaught of the English language? [ ]
A. People who use English do not really like it.
B. English is used widely in business and the mass media, but not in other important aspects of life.
C. English is being popularized through British and US force, and will weaken once these countries weaken.
D. English is full of exceptions and confusing idioms.

IV. Some lines in the passage below contain an error each. Underline the error and
write the correction in the space provided. One has been done for you.
The earliest examples in voluntary shaving of the beard appear to have
been connected to the desire off display “enslavement to a god.” Young
men would offer their beards as a sign of loyal submission for their
deities. Priests would shave off their beards for a symbol of humility.
But shaving on a more permanent and widespread base seems to have
been introduced in ancient Greece and Rome. Alexander the Great is
reputed to instruct his soldiers to remove their beards in order
to improve their chances for close combat. It was considered that long
beards will make useful handholds for the enemy – as one sometimes
sees today in professional wrestle bouts. Roman soldiers were told
to shave their beards for reasons of identification. Their shaven chins
were easily distinguished from those of the hairy barbarians they
were fighting. There was too the question of hygeine, although it is not
certain what big a role this played.

Section B: Vocabulary
Read the following passage and choose the most suitable word/phrase to fill in the
blanks in the passage. 10 X 1 = 10 marks

The father of evolution was a nervous parent. Few things _11__Charles Darwin more than
the challenge of explaining how nature's most complex structures, such as the eye, came to
be. "The eye to this day_12_ me a cold shudder," he wrote to a friend in 1860.
Today biologists are beginning to understand the origins of life's _13_ - the exquisite optical
mechanism of the eye, the masterly engineering of the arm, the choreography that allows
trillions of cells to cooperate in a single organism.
The fundamental answer is clear: In_14_, all these wonders evolved. "The basic idea of
evolution is so elegant, so simple," says Howard Berg, a Harvard researcher studying the
spinning tail of common bacteria. "The idea is simply that you fiddle around, change
something and_15_ you ask: Does it improve my survival or not? And if it does, you keep
fiddling around, improving. It's _16_ powerful technique."
But nearly 150 years after Darwin, the evolution of complex structures can still be hard to
accept. Most of us can envision natural selection tweaking a simple trait—making an animal
furrier, for example. Yet it's _17_ to picture evolution producing a new complex organ,
complete with all its precisely interlocking parts. Creationists claim that life is so complex
that it could not have evolved. They _18_ that such complexity must be the direct product of
"intelligent design" by a superior being.
The _19_majority of biologists do not share this belief. Studying how complex structures
came to be is one of the most exciting frontiers in evolutionary biology, with clues coming at
remarkable speed. Scientists still have _20_before they understand the evolution of
complexity, which isn't surprising since many of life's devices evolved hundreds of millions
of years ago.

11. A. worried B. excited C. disconcerted
12. A. gives B. provides C. renders
13. A. difficulty B. complexity C. complexness
14. A. one way or another B. every which way C. one way or the other
15. A. therefore B. subsequently C. then
16. A. an enormously B. a heavily C. a hugely
17. A. simpler B. tougher C. harder
18. A. conjecture B. argue C. proclaim
19. A. immense B. big C. vast
20. A a long way to go B. come a long way C. a long distance to cover

Section C: Reading
Read the following texts and answer the questions that follow. 5 X 1 = 5
Passage 1
Orang-utans “require less food than humans, pound-for-pound,” lead author Herman Pontzer
said. When they do eat orang-utans nibble mostly on ripe fruit, along with smaller portions of
leaves and seed. Even in captivity, this diet doesn’t diminish an orang-utan’s get-up-and-go.
“They wake up early, after a long night’s sleep,” explained Pontzer, an assistant professor of
anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis. “Then they spend the day socializing,
exploring their indoor or outdoor enclosures. They also regularly engage in games with
According to a study, published in the latest Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences, these activities of the orangutan’s, taken together add up to the same level of
exercise performed by humans in physically demanding agricultural lifestyles.
In the wild, orang-utans live in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra where food availability
is highly variable and unpredictable, Pontzer added. Like fresh fruit from the garden, the
pickings are often feast or famine. “But the trade-off,” he added, “is that low-energy
throughout means less energy is available to do things like grow and reproduce. So orangutans
grow slowly and reproduce slowly, which is evolutionarily risky because an orang-utan
might die before it passes on its genes.” Human mothers can have a child every two to four
years, but orang-utans in the wild only reproduce every seven to eight years.
Orang-utans are highly endangered, with many lost due to human activities such as logging,
mining and the illegal pet trade. Pontzer hopes the study will highlight “how much
information we lose about our closest relatives and our own evolutionary history if we let
them go extinct.”

21. Orang-utans eat _____ humans do.
A. less than
B. more than
C. nearly as much as

22. According to Pontzer, orang-utans are
A. lazy.
B. slow.
C. energetic.

23. According to the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of
A. orang-utans and farmers do the same amount of physical activity.
B. orang-utans do the same exercises as farmers.
C. orang-utans and farmers have similar lifestyles.

24. Orang-utans grow slowly and reproduce slowly because they
A. don’t get sufficient food.
B. don’t get fresh fruit from the garden.
C. don’t eat enough food.

25. Select the statement that is NOT TRUE.
A. The orang-utan reproductive cycle is slow.
B. All orang-utans may not reproduce.
C. Orang-utans give birth every four years.
