SECTION-III Q. 4) Precise the following passage into one-third of the original.(15 Marks) How often one hears children wishing they were grown up, and older people wishing they were young again. Each age has its own pleasures and pains, and happiest person is the one who enjoys what age gives him without wasting his time in useless regrets. Childhood is a time when there are few responsibilities to make life difficult. A child is fed and looked after by his parents. It is impossible that he will be ever again so much without having to do anything in return. In addition, life is always representing new things to the child-things that have lost their interest for older people because they are too familiar. A child finds pleasure in playing in the rain or in the snow. His first visit to the sea side is a marvelous adventure. But a child has his pains, he is not so free as he wishes to be and as he thinks older people are. He is continuously being told not to do things, or being punished for what he has done wrong. His life, therefore, is not completely happy.
  4. 4. Q. 5) If man began with speech, and civilization with agriculture, industry began with fire. Man did not invent it; probably nature produce the marvel for him by the friction of leaves and twigs, stroke of lightening, or a chance union of chemicals; man merely had the saving wit to imitate nature, and to improve upon her. He put the wonder to a thousand uses. First, perhaps, he made it serve as a torch to conquer his fearsome enemy, the dark; then he used it for warmth, and move about freely from his native tropics to less enervating zones, slowly making the planets human; then he applied it to metals, softening them, tempering them, and combining them into forms stronger and more supple than those in which they had come to his hand. It was fire that created the old and honourable art of cooking, extending the diet of man to a thousand foods that could not be eaten before. So beneficent and strange was it that fire always remained a miracle to primitive man, fit to be worshipped as a god; he offered it countless ceremonies of devotion, and made it thus centre or focus of his life and home: he carried it carefully with him as he moved from place to place in his wonderings and would not willingly let it die. Even the romance punished with death the careless virgins of temple of Vesta who allowed the sacred fire to be extinguished. Answer the following question on the passage given above:- i) Fire is called a ‘wonder’. What other single words in the passage convey the same idea? ii) What did the primitive man fear greatly? iii) Explain: “Man merely has the saving wit to imitate nature.” iv) What were the results of the application of fire to metals? v) Which word suggests that man’s original home was in the tropics? vi) How did man sit about making the planet human? vii) How did fire aid man in his diet? viii)What was the principal duty of the virgins in the temple of Vesta? ix) Suggest a suitable phrase as a title for the passage.
