Question nos. 51 to 53 : Read the following passage carefully and answer the question given below. Several years ago my parents, my wife, my son and I ate at a restaurant. After a wonderful dinner, the waiter set the bill in the middle of the table. That is when it happened : my father did not reach for the bill. Conversation continued. Finally it dawned on me. I was supposed to pay the bill. After hundreds of restaurant meals with my parents, after life-time of thinking of my father as the one with the money, it had all changed. I reached for the bill, and my view of myself suddenly altered. I was an adult.

Some people mark off their lives in years; I measure mine in small evernts in rites of passage. I did not become a young man at a particular age, like 13, but rather when a boy strolled into the shop where I worked and called me “mister”. The realisation hit me like a punch : I was suddenly a mister.

I never thought I would prefer to stay at home, but now I find myself forgoing parties. I used to think that people who watched birds were weird, but this summer I found myself watching them, and maybe I’ll get a book on the subject. I yearn for a religious conviction that I never thought I’d want, feel close to my ancestors long gone, and echo my father in argument with my son. I still lose.One day I became a father, and too long after that I picked up the bill for my own son. I thought then it was a rite of passage for me. But one day when I was a little older, I realised it was one for him too.

51 : The passage tells about the author that he is becoming ........

1) learned.
2) an adult.
3) rich.
4) an artist.

52 : The author had begun to forgo parties because he had ......

1) become a party–hater.
2) become somewhat abnormal.
3) begun to take interests in watching birds.
4) become self–centred.

53 : ‘I was suddenly a mister’ here means ......

1) author felt that he had become an adult.
2) the author was highly respected.
3) the author was addressed as the owner of the shop.
4) the author was now a responsible person.

Question nos. 54 to 56 : Read the following passage and answer the questions given below.

The villager has customarily been very conservative in his attitude and approach. He is reluctant to change his traditional way of thinking and doing things. His attitude, in many respects, is : “home–made is best”. For instance, most cattle-farmers in the villages, prefer to feed their cows and buffaloes with a home–mix comprising local oil–cakes like mustard or cottonseed, pulses, jaggery, salt, etc. It takes numerous visits, hard-convincing, daily trials and experiments to convince the rural cattle–farmer that compound feeds, scientifically formulated, improve the yields of milk, without any incremental costs.

The age–old values and attitudes towards caste, creed, women, time and money take time to change. The villager has traditionally been a believer in the philosophy of karma or fate. He has found it more convenient to blame his economic destitution, poor living conditions, and straightened social status on ‘bhagya’, ‘karma’ or ‘fate.’ The security that the villagers find in the ‘status quo’, acts as a disincentive to change and experiment, in the short-run. Many of these antiquated attitude, value-system and outlooks are changing, due to improved levels of awareness and education. However, the rate of change is sluggish. Attitudes that have fossilised over the centuries, do take the time to change.

54 : Which one of the following is not the usual reason offered by an average Indian villager for his poverty ?

1) It is God’s will
2) It is a result of some of his bad deeds committed in this previous birth.
3) It is because of his resistance to new ideas.
4) It is his destiny

55 : When will you call a person conservative in his attitude and approach ?

1) When he imputes motive to change agents.
2) When he would like to try out every new idea before accepting it.
3) When he sticks to old ways of thinking and doing.
4) When he solves his problems through tried out methods.

56 : Why does a villager feel secure in maintaining ‘status quo’ ?

1) Because whatever is known should be the best.
2) Because change is seldom for the better.
3) Because too many people go about advising him.
4) Because of the imagined risk involved in trying a new approach.

Question nos. 57 to 59 : Persuasion is the art of convincing someone to agree with your point of view. According to the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle, there are three basic tools of persuasion : ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is a speaker’s way of convincing the audience that she is a credible source. An audience will consider a speaker credible if she seems trustworthy, reliable, and sincere. This can be done in many ways. For example, a speaker can develop ethos by explaining how much experience or education she has in the field. After all, you would be more likely to listen to advice about how to take care of your teeth from a dentist than a firefighter. A speaker can also create ethos by convincing the audience that she is good person who has their best interests at heart. If an audience cannot trust you, you will not be able to persuade them. Pathos is a speaker’s way of connecting with an audience’s emotions. For example, a speaker who is trying to convince an audience to vote for him might say that he alone can save the country from a terrible war. These words are intended to fill the audience with fear, thus making them want to vote for him. Similarly, a charity organization that helps animals might show an audience pirctures of injured dogs and cats. These images are intended to fill the viewers with pity. If the audience feels bad for the animals, they will be more likely to donate money. Logos is the use of facts, information, statistics, or other evidence to make your argument more convincing. An audience will be more likely to belive you if have data to back up your claims. For example, a commercial for soap might tell you that laboratory tests have shown that their soap kills all 7,000,000 of the bacteria living on your hands right now. This piece of information might make you more likely to buy their brand of soap. Presenting this evidence is much more convincing than simply saying “Our soap is the best!” Use of logos can also increase a speaker’s ethos; the more facts a speaker includes in his argument, the more likely you are to think that he is educated and trustworthy. Although ethos, pathos, and logos all have their strengths, they are often most effective when they are used together. Indeed, most speakers use a comination of ethos, pathos, and logos to persuade their audiences. The next time you listen to a speech, watch a commercial, or listen to a friend try to convince you to lend him some money, be on the lookout for these ancient Greek tools of persuasion.

57 : Amy is trying to convince her mother to buy her a pair of shoes worth Rs. 200. She says: “Mom, the shoes I have are really old and ugly. If I don’t get these new shoes, everyone at school is going to laugh at me. I will be so embarrassed that I will want to die.” What form of persuasion is Amy using here?

1) Pathos
2) Ethos
3) Logos
4) A combination of ethos, pathos, and logos

58 : According to the passage, the most effetive tool of persuasion is ......

1) ethos, because you cannot persuade an audience that does not trust you.
2) logos, because it can also be used to build ethos.
3) a combination of ethos, pathos, and logos.
4) pathos, because human beings are most easily persuaded by emotion.

59 : According to the passage, logos can build ethos because ......

1) an audience is more easily conivenced by facts and information than simply appeals to emotions like pity or fear.
2) an audience is more likely to trust a speaker who uses evidence to support his argument.
3) a speaker who overuses pathos might make an audience too emotional; audiences who are too frightened or too sad are unlikely to be persuaded.
4) a speaker can use misleading or false information to make his argument seem more convincing.

Question nos. 60 to 62 : Nationalism, of course, is a curious phenomenon which at a certain stage in a country’s history gives life, growth and unity, but, at the same time, it has a tendency to limit one, because one thinks of one’s country as something different from the rest of the world. One’s perspective changes and one is continuously thinking of one’s own struggles and virtues and failing to the exclusion of other thoughts. The result is that the same nationalism which is the symbol of growth for a people becomes a symbol of the cessation of that growth in the mind. Nationalism, when it becomes successful sometimes goes on spreading in an aggressive way and becomes a danger internationally. Whatever line of thought you follow, you arrive at the conclusion that some kind of balance must be found. Otherwise something that was good can turn into evil. Culture, which is essentially good becomes not only static but aggressive and something that breeds conflict and hatred when looked at from a wrong point of view. How are you to find a balance, I don’t know. Apart from the political and economic problems of the age, perhaps this is the greatest problem today because behind it there is a tremendous search for something which it cannot find. We turn to economic theories because they have an undoubted importance. It is folly to talk of culture or even of God when human being starve and die. Before one can talk about anything else one must provide the normal essentials of life to human beings. That is where economics comes in. Human beings today are not in the mood to tolerate this suffering and starvation and inequality when they see that the burden is not equally shared. Others profit while they only bear the burden.

1) breeds threat to international relations.
2) leads to stunted growth.

1) selfish
2) indifferent

3) share the economic burden equally?
