Direction (16 – 25) : In the following passage, you have two brief passage with 5 questions following each

passage. Read the passages carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives

and blacken the appropriate rectangles in the Answer-sheet.

Passage - I
“The Law is an ass’, declared Mr. Bumble in “Oliver Twist”, and it often seems he was right. For punishment

does not always fit the crime and it rarely happens that a prison term reforms a criminal.”

Consider the following tow cases. The first one had happened in a village in Madural District. One Gopal One

Gopal Yadhav, a hard-core criminal undergoing life sentence in the Madural Prison came out on ball for two

days to perform the last rites of his mother. But he was rearrested on the same evening on the charges of

murdering his neighbour’s son the settle old scores.

The second case too came to Madural Court recently. Deserted by her husband a drunkard, his grief-stricken

wife mixed rate poison in the food and gave it to her four children aged between 1 ½ and 9 years. Before she

could swallow the same food she was unable to bear the pritiable sight of her children writhing in pain. She

rushed them to hospital where she disclosed everything. She was able to save the lives of the first three

children, but the law of the country awarded her tow years imprisonment (later commuted to one year) on the

charges of plotting to kill her children. Would you say women like here are a danger to the society? Would you

call them criminal? It is high time that we found other ways of registering our disapproval of wrong doing. To

imprison the bad is expedient – when they are dangerous. To imprison the mad and the merely sad, as we do, is

not only unnecessary, it is uncivilized.

Q.16) The writer says ‘The Law is an ass’ because

(1) it is as patient as an ass

(2) it does not punish the criminals severely

(3) punishments do not help to reform criminals

(4) criminals can escape punishment.

Q.17) Gopal Yadhav came out on ball

(1) in order to murder his enemy

(2) to cremate his mother

(3) so that he could be rearrested

(4) to see his four children undergoing treatment in the hospital

Q.18) The mother in the second case cannot be called a criminal because she

(1) rushed her children to the hospital

(2) mixed an ineffective poison in the food

(3) was able to save three out of four children

(4) was deserted by her husband.

Q.19) The writer argues that punishments for people like the woman in the second case are not necessary

because they

(1) don’t commit crimes frequently

(2) are less dangerous than other criminals

(3) represent poor society

(4) should not be clubbed with other criminals

Q.20) The main difference between the two case is

(1) the first is about a man and the other is about a woman

(2) the woman regrets what she has done, but not the man

(3) the man is a lifer but the woman is not

(4) the man and the woman belong to different communities

Passage - II

The United Nations Fourth World Women’s Conference had a colourful start at Beijing on September 4th. This

is the century’s most crucial conference which aimed at changing the status quo of women’s lives

characterized by inequality.

In a preliminary session, Ms. Aung Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace Prize winner said that expanding women’s

power will bring greater peace and tolerance to the world.

“It is not the prerogative of men alone to bring light to this world. Women with their capacity for compassion

and self-sacrifice, with their courage and perseverance have done much to dissipate the darkness of intolerance

and hate”, said Ms. Suu Kyi.

In the afternoon session Ms. Ayako Yamaguchi, a Japanese delegate, launched a petition against beauty

pageants. “What right do men have to evaluate women in a few minutes? All women are beautiful. Beauty is

something different for everyone”, Ms Ayako Yamaguchi said.

“Beauty contests are used as trade and exploitation. The training is very vigorous but it is the organizers, not

the women, who get the full benefit”, said Ms Ranjana Bhargava. “After the competition, the women become

trapped and the abuse and the bad things begin. The women are tainted no one else will accept them”.

Q.21) The Women’s World Conference was very important because

(1) Ms Aung Suu Kyi has just been awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize

(2) Ms Aung Suu Kyi was taking part in the Conference

(3) its main purpose was to change inequalities between men and women

(4) it was to protest against beauty contests

Q.22) Which of the following arguments of Ms Aung Suu Kyi is not true?

(1) Women also can bring greater peace to the world.

(2) Men cannot claim they have done more for peace.

(3) Women have the capacity for compassion and sacrifice.

(4) Men have done nothing to dissipate ignorance.

Q.23) The main emphasis in Ms. Ayako Yamaguchi’s argument is

(1) men have no right to judge women.

(2) men should be given more time to evaluate women.

(3) all women are beautiful in a way.

(4) beauty contests are not necessary.

Q.24) “Beauty is something different for everyone”.

This statement means

(1) beauty is certainly different from ugliness.

(2) beautiful women do not mingle with other women.

(3) beauty cannot be defined adequately.

(4) each woman is beautiful.

Q.25) “Colourful start” in the first sentence refers to

(1) participants who were all beautiful

(2) a lot of excitement and cheerfulness in the conference hall

(3) absence of black coloured girls

(4) flags of various colours outside the conference hall

Directions—(Q. 1–15) Read the following passage carefully and answer the

questions given below it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold

to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

Mihir and Mahadev lived in the same village. While Mahadev owned the

largest shop in the village, Mihir was a poor farmer. Both had large

families, with many sons, daughtersin-law and grandchildren. One day,

Mihir, tired of not being able to make ends meet, decided to leave the

village and move to the city where they were sure to make enough to feed

everyone. They said their goodbyes, packed their few belongings and set

off. When night fell, they stopped under a large tree. There was a stream

running nearby, where they could refresh themselves. Mihir told his sons

to clear the area below the tree. He told his wife to fetch water. He

instructed his daughters-in-law to make up the fire and started cutting

wood from the tree himself. Now, in the branches of that tree sat a

thief. He watched as Mihir’s family worked together. He also noticed they

had nothing to cook. Mihir’s wife too thought the same, for she said to

her husband, “Everything is ready. But what shall we eat ?” Mihir raised

his hands to heaven and said, “Don’t worry. He is watching all this from

above. He will help us.”

The thief was worried. He had seen that the family was large and worked

well together. Surely they did not know he was hiding in the branches ?

He decided to make a quick getaway. He climbed down swiftly when they

were not looking and ran for his life. But, he left behind his bundle of

stolen jewels and money, which dropped down into Mihir’s lap. He opened

it and jumped with joy when he saw the contents. The family promptly

gathered its belongings and returned to the village. There was great

excitement when they told everyone how they got rich.

Mahadev thought this was a nice quick way to earn some money ! He

commanded his family to pack some clothes and they set off as if on a

journey. They stopped under the same tree and Mahadev started commanding

everyone as Mihir had done. But no one in his family was willing to obey

orders. They were used to having servants wait on them – so the one who

went to the river to fetch water had a nice bath. The one who went to

gather wood for the fire went off to sleep beneath the tree. And Mahadev

only ordered everyone about, not bothering to do anything himself.

Meanwhile the thief had returned to the tree. He noticed the family

members were greedy and selfish. They would never be able to put up a

fight together. Then, Mahadev and his wife started the conversation that

they had rehearsed carefully. Mahadev’s wife said, “Everything is ready.

But what shall we eat ?” Mahadev raised his hands upwards and said,

“Don’t worry. He is watching all this from above. He will help us”.

At this, the thief jumped down from the tree, knife in hand. Seeing him,

everyone started running helter skelter to save themselves. The thief

stole everything. Mahadev and his family had to return to the village

empty-handed, having lost all the jewellery and gold they had taken with
