    Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow:
    Daffodils, the trumpet-shaped flowers bloom during the spring. In fact, daffodils are the first sign of spring and they symbolize rebirth, new beginnings, and friendship. It is the flower of those born in March. Daffodils are native to the Mediterranean region but are cultivated all over the world. The flower is called Nargis in Hindi, perhaps because of its association with the egotistical Greek God Narcissus. Legend has it that Narcissus fell in love with his own image in a pool of water. He was so enamoured by his own image that he fell into the water and drowned. The flower, also called Narcissus, grew where he died. This led to it becoming a symbol of unrequited love. A gift of daffodil flowers is believed to ensure happiness. It is a common decoration flower during the Chinese New Year. Feng Shui experts believe that if a daffodil bulb blooms during the New Year, it will bring good luck to your home. The flowers have been viewed as symbols of Christ's resurrection and the promise of eternal life. In Wales, it is a symbol of the patron saint, David. Daffodil bulbs, because of their astringent properties, are pounded and made into a paste to be applied to wounds. Pharma companies use daffodil extracts to make drugs that are used to treat Alzheimer's and Polio.

    The moon's role in causing tides is much more high and important than that the sun me reason is mat the moon enjoys more proximity to the earth than the sun as such its force of attraction is stronger than that of the sun in attracting the surface water. Tides are of immense importance. In trade, navigation and fishing, tides are very useful. During the high tide, the water depth near the coast goes up and helps big ships to reach the ports. Kandia port in Gujarat and Diamond Harbour in West Bengal owe theirvery existence to the tides only. The significance of both London and Kolkata also depends on the tides.
    Tides also keep the harbours clear of refuse and mud brought down by rivers and thus they do not allow the harbours to be silted. Commonly, the tidal rivers are navigable. For the purpose of generating electricity, tidal waves are harnessed. Tides do not allow the sea water to be frozen by keeping the sea water in motion. Tides are also made use by the fishermen for sailing into the sea and returning to the harbour. In the countries like Canada, U.K., France and Japan, tidal power stations are set up.
    Why does the moon play a greater role than the sun in causing tides?

    A) The moon is closer to the earth as compared to the sun.  

    B) The moon has greater gravitational pull.

    C) The moon shines in night.

    D) None of the above.

    'He who hesitates is lost' is a well-known proverb. A leader who cannot decide on a plan of action will not be able to accomplish anything worthwhile. Indecision leads to confusion because people do not know what to do. Prompt decision-making is of great use in an emergency. A young doctor once had a patient who complained of intense pain. The doctor consulted two other doctors to find out if an operation should be performed. The other doctors felt that the patient's condition should be observed for a few days. But the young doctor, who felt responsible for the patient, examined him once again and decided to operate immediately When the operation was performed, the other doctors realised that a delay of even a few hours would have proved fatal to the patient. A prompt decision by the young doctor saved the life of his patient.
    We are often faced with difficult problems. It is up to us to take prompt decisions that could make the difference between success and failure. We must be able to say 'yes' or 'no' without delay, and no 'maybe' or 'perhaps' after hours of deliberation.
    This does not mean we should say 'yes' or 'no' without thinking. We must cultivate the ability to quickly think out all the favourable and unfavourable circumstances of a situation and then decide whether we should say 'yes' or 'no'. To linger over a decision for days and months will get us nowhere. Hence, prompt decision-making is very important, if one wants to achieve success.
    Give a suitable title to this passage.

    A) 'A Doctor and a Patient'

    B) 'Qualities of a Leader'

    C) 'Prompt Decision-Making: Tool for success'

    Read the poem carefully and answer the questions that follow:
    When I'm An Old Lady
    When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
    And bring so much happiness just as they did.
    I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
    Returning each deed. Oh, they'll be so excited!
    I’ll write on the walls with reds, whites and blues,
    And bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes,
    I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
    I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout.
    When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
    I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
    Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
    And when that is done, I'll hide under the bed.
    When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
    I'll not eat my green beans and salad or meat.
    I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
    And when they get angry I'll run if I'm able.
    I'll sit close to the T.V., through the channels I'll click
    I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick
    I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
    And play in the mud till the end of the day.
    And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
    I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
    My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping.
    And say with a groan, ".She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"
    -Barabara Hall

    Read the poem carefully and answer the questions that follow:
    When I'm An Old Lady
    When I'm an old lady, I'll live with each kid,
    And bring so much happiness just as they did.
    I want to pay back all the joy they've provided.
    Returning each deed. Oh, they'll be so excited!
    I’ll write on the walls with reds, whites and blues,
    And bounce on the furniture wearing my shoes,
    I'll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
    I'll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they'll shout.
    When they're on the phone and just out of reach,
    I'll get into things like sugar and bleach.
    Oh, they'll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
    And when that is done, I'll hide under the bed.
    When they cook dinner and call me to eat,
    I'll not eat my green beans and salad or meat.
    I'll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
    And when they get angry I'll run if I'm able.
    I'll sit close to the T.V., through the channels I'll click
    I'll cross both eyes just to see if they stick
    I'll take off my socks and throw one away,
    And play in the mud till the end of the day.
    And later in bed, I'll lay back and sigh,
    I'll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
    My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping.
    And say with a groan, ".She's so sweet when she's sleeping!"
    -Barabara Hall
