The steamship Rangoon was a fast as the Magnolia, but not as comfortable. During the first part of the journey to Hong Kong, which was three thousand five hundred miles, the weather was very good and the ship sped along.
Mrs. Aouda came to know Mr Fogg. She was very grateful to him for what he had done for her. When Mr Fogg listened to her conversation he never showed any sign of emotion. He was always careful to see that she had
everything she wanted. At certain hours he came regularly to either talk with her, or just listen to her. He was always polite but seemed to behave more like a machine than a man. Mrs Aouda did not know what to think of him.
Luckily, Passepartout explained to her what sort of character his master was. He told her of the bet which was taking them around the world. Mrs Aouda had smiled when she heard that. She felt that since she owed her life to this strange man, he could not lose his bet.

Question nos. 54 to 56 : Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow –
Dr. Kiran Bedi is the first lady to qualify for the Indian Police Service (IPS). The qualities of honesty, courage, empathy for fellow humans, hard work, determination and patriotism are the ones that personify this unique woman. 
Bedi had a hard time getting her way through the male dominated profession. She saw in her role as a police officer an opportunity to help the people, to show them the way to a better life. She applied this philosophy at every
stage of her career as a traffic cop, an anti-narcotics cell officer, an anti-terrorist specialist, and an administrator. Bedi did not fear anybody. To her the law was the same for all, be it the President of India or a commoner. It is said
that she once towed Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s car for parking violation while she was on the way to the United Sates. The greatest challenge to her philosophy came in 1994 when she was promoted to the rank of Inspector General of Prisons and given the responsibility of managing the largest and most notorious prison in the Asia Pacific region – Tihar Jail in Delhi where the inmates numbered about 8,500. She would shock prisoners by personally visiting them, talking and listening to them. Bedi can be rightly acclaimed as the woman who scrubbled the dirt off the khaki of the police force by establishing herself and her life as an example worthy of emulation.

54 : The word closest in meaning to 'male dominated' is ...
1) authoritarian

2) matriarchal
3) paternal

55 : What does the expression 'scrubbing of the dirt' mean ?

2) made blame free.
3) do hard work.

4) work to sincerely.

56 : What philosophy did Dr. Bedi apply at every stage of her life ?
1) to be strict and dedicated to work.
2) to be humble to all.
3) to be successful and powerful.
4) to help people towards a better life.

Question nos. 57 to 59 : Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow –
What is discipline after all? it is expending time and energy trying not to do the things you really want to do. Or, forcing yourself to do something that your mind and body rebel against. There are some things that must be done even if you force yourself to do them for the sake of your own growth, health and hygiene, or for general sociability and compatibility with fellow beings. Once that is taken care of, I find externally imposed discipline to be just an albatross around the neck. It puts me of rather than gets me into doing something. This however does not mean that I give any less energy, attention and passion to what I do, or that I ignore tasks that I set myself or the world sets for me. It just means that rather than disciplining myself into doing tasks, I look for and connect with aspect that excite me arouse my passion if such element are not to be found, I try to infuse the same and end up creating a passionate affair with every task that comes my way. And with this the task rather than a must do becomes a love to do. Dreams and aspirations to me are greater motivators and means of achieving goals rather than dreaded discipline. My dreams should be such a compelling motivator that I should be seduced to working towards it. In this way I would enjoy the journey as well as the destination. We all need motivation to achieve anything be it a better physique, climbing a mountain, writing a book, earning money or success, gaining power, becoming a world-class sportsperson or the world’s best homemaker. Discipline is required if the motivation isn’t strong enough.
And if that is so, it means the dream is not compelling enough; we are probably dreaming the wrong dream. Why should one have to be flogged (read disciplined) into pursuing one’s own dream.

57 : Externally imposed discipline can be ....
1) an albatross around a neck.
2) beneficial for your growth health and hygiene.
3) helpful for general sociability and compatibility.
4) none of the above.

58 : In the writer's opinion, true discipline means.......
1) forcing yourself to do things you don't like.
2) creating a passionate affair with every task that comes in a way.
3) doing things because they are must.
4) motivators for earning money, success, power.

59 : Why are our dreams meaningful ?
1) They are greater motivators and means of achieving our goals.
2) We can achieve anything with our dreams.
3) Dreams reveal who we truly are.
4) They help us to bring discipline in our lives.

Question nos. 60 to 62 : Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow –
One of the greatest delusions of modern times is the prevailing belief that we are more civilized than our ancestors. At no other period in the history of mankind has the word ‘Civilization’ been so often misused and 
misunderstood. It is not in the abundance of material goods alone that civilization lies. Neither does it consist in the advance of scientific knowledge however amazing it may be. The inventions and discoveries of science have
undoubtedly brought unheard blessings and comforts to us. But they are not civilization. What we have failed to see is that civilization is a special way of human behaviour, of thought and feeling. The essential quality of  civilization lies in the spirit of man, in his attitude to himself, to his fellowmen and to life as a whole. Looking everywhere around us today, we will find that man has made no progress since the dawn of history, in his attitude towards his fellowmen. On all the highest pillars in the cities of the world, you will find the figure of a conqueror or a general soldier. We know more about our killers and destroyers than about our saviours and saints. The heroes of the world are the heroes of war.

1) strong

2) confasing

3) existing
