PASSAGE I
Read the passage carefully and then answer the
questions that follow.
The primary function of the teacher is not to impart
useful information, but to stimulate by every device at his
disposal the questioning attitude - of mind, and to
provide the student with technical equipment for
following up his questions. The requisite technical
equipment will vary from subject to subject. It ranges
from that involved in the solution of a mathematical
problem to that employed in the writing of an essay. At
one extreme the problem set admits only a single
answer; at the other it calls for the maximum of
individuality. This is, perhaps, the chief limitation of the
essay as an instrument of education. It requires the
student to fly before he has learnt to walk. Between the
extremes of a purely mechanical reproduction of a lesson
or the mechanical application of formal rules, and
constructive work of an essay, many intervening stages
require to be traversed. The first step is the 'paraphrase'
in which what is presented in the passive vocabulary is
translated into its active counterpart. Allied to this is the
exercise of translating experience into words. The
student should be able to give a plain, descriptive report
of a simple sequence of event - an account, say of an
accident in the street. This should possess the elementary
merits of simplicity, accuracy, and coherence, which
would commend it to the police. Next he should be able
to reproduce, in his own words' and in a simplified and
condensed form the substance of a reasoned argument.
The essential requirements here are brevity, precision,
and a sense of logical connection. The next stage is the
commentary. The student should acquire facility in, the
expression of his personal reaction to a passage read. The
comment may be one of elucidation, illustration, logical,
factual, or literary criticism. The sole essential condition
to which judicious comment must conform is that it
should fall within the generous bounds allowed by
relevance. Technical exercises appropriate to special
branches of study, so far as they are not mechanical, are
variations and elaborations of the commentary. The fulldress
essay is the last and most difficult member of the
series. It requires the most complex organization of
individual controls. We have found two principal clues to
individuality and originality of thought. These qualities
are fostered by the interaction of suitably related trains
of thought. They are fostered, too, by active questioning
habits of mind. These two points, perhaps, are only one;
for only active trains of thought can interact. It follows
that the student would be well advised to give careful
thought to the selection of his subjects and to his
methods of works. For the selection he must seek advice
appropriate to his special case. But whatever the subjects
selected he should explore their mutual relations, and he
should try to apply in all whatever he learns in each.

impart useful information (b) To help his students
develop a questioning attitude (c) To play with his
students (d) To enforce discipline

insulting to the teacher (c) Foster individuality and
originality of thought (d) Are not required of students
PASSAGE II
Read the passage carefully and then answer the
questions that follow.
Read the following passage carefully and answer the
questions on it. Sometimes a person's attempt to read
fast and comprehend much may be faced with a number
of problems. Some of these obstacles can be traced to
the reader's own habits developed over the years. Others
are however no fault of the reader's but can be traced to
natural causes. In this passage, we will consider some of
such natural factors. First consider a person whose level
of natura1 intelligence is lamentably low. Intelligence is
God given and sometimes there is very little a person can
do to improve his level of intelligence. So when there is a
child with a low level of intelligence, he would normally
be slow, in learning to read and would read slowly and
poorly. Nervous disorders also affect one's reading
ability. When a person has brain damage, he will have
problems in his intellectual activities including reading
performance. Furthermore, children develop at different
rates. Some develop at a slower rate than others. If a
child is pushed into a reading programme before he
reaches the appropriate level of development, failure
might be expected. However such a child may still catch
up when he reached the right age. While it has not been
conclusively established, there is evidence to attest that
eye defects may adversely affect the reading ability of
both good and poor readers. A person with bad eyes
suffers considerable strain when reading, and it is this
strain that discourages a liking for reading. This hinders
constant practice and results in poor reading
performances. Finally, children who have failed in
learning to read and write often show signs of emotional
problems such as anxiety, fear, truancy, restlessness, nailbiting
etc.

Question 2
Suggest a title for the passage a) Reading is enjoyable b)
Reading and effects on your eyes. c) Good reading skill
and biological functions d) Reasons for poor reading skills
Question 3
What factor does not affect a person's reading efficiency?
a) Comprehension b) Nervous disorder c) Eye defect d)
Low intelligence
Question 4
What could happen if a child is Pre-mature pushed into a
reading programme? a) He will perform very well b) He
may not perform very well c) His nervous system will be
affected d) It will affect his eye sight
Question 5
What is the passage's position on when a child reaches
the right age? a) He will be too intelligent b) He will give
up reading tasks c) He will be shy d) He might meet up
with expected reading tasks
Question 6
It is unfair to blame a child for low intelligence because
.................. a) It is a natural thing b) It is inevitable c) It is
strenuous d) It is his fault
Question 7
Eye defect can result in a child's ................ a) Liking for
reading b) Dislike for reading c) Nervousness d) Low
intelligence
Question 8
Eye defect can affect ................ a) Good readers b) Poor
readers c) Slow readers d) Both good and poor readers
Question 9

with natural intelligence d) A child that is learning how to
read

PASSAGE III
USE THIS PASSAGE TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING:
Typhoid fever is caused by typhoid bacteria. The disease
is contracted through food or water contaminated with
faeces or urine. Patients and carriers of typhoid (the
latter may not suffer from the disease), pass the
organism in urine or stool. If such stool or urine get in
contact with food or drinking water then, whoever takes
such food or water can get typhoid. Flies which settle on
typhoid-bearing faeces or urine and then settle on food
and water, contaminate it, endangering the health of
anyone who eats the food. One could get typhoid by
eating unwashed mangoes that had fallen on the ground
where someone had passed stool around with a high
bacteria count of typhoid. Roadside food sellers are big
offenders in transmitting typhoid. A lot of them do not
practice much hygiene. They may go to the toilet without
washing their hands properly afterwards', and may
contaminate the food or water they sell to their
customers. This applies to any commercial food selling
place. In rural areas and even some city areas where
water is insufficient in quantity and when the water is not
safe, the people are exposed a lot more to typhoid
infection. Adequate and safe water is therefore one of
the bedrocks of preventing typhoid. In such situations
where water is a scarce commodity, people hardly
observe simple hygiene rules like washing hands or fruits
before eating, and washing hands after visiting the toilet
or latrine. This group of people increases chances of
contracting infection. In some homes there is also, the
problem of lack of proper toilet and sanitary facilities,
and people just go to the backyard when they feel like
'easing' themselves, or throw rubbish or garbage
anywhere, encouraging the breeding of germs which can
be a source of contamination. Even where there are
toilets like the pit latrines, if they are not properly made,
used and covered, flies can fly in and out of the latrines
and deposit faeces carrying bacteria on uncovered food
or drink. As far as epidemics are concerned, it is not usual
for typhoid to assume epidemic proportions in the urban
centres, because most water corporations treat water. A

person suspected to have malariafever, who does not
respond to treatment for malaria, has typhoid fever
unless proved otherwise. A typhoid victim's stool and
urine should be properly disposed of so as to avoid
transmitting the disease to others. They must also ensure
that they are adequately treated. Infection may confer
only temporary and partial protection against further
infection.

Question 12

(a) Food (b) Water (c) Contaminated food (d) typhoid
