It was a raw, cold day in early April. Since morning, the clouds had been gathering, which now hung, dark and heavy, over both land and sea. The wind, which had been steadily increasing for hours in violence, now blew little short of a gale. It evidently was going to be a terrible night, and that night was nearly at hand.
No one realised this more than the boy who, with a small bundle in one hand and a stout staff in the other, was walking rapidly along the road, in sight of Long Island Sound, from New Haven to New London.
He was a youth that would have attracted attention anywhere. Tall for his age, and not more than eighteen years, he was also of good proportions. He walked with an ease and stride which suggested reserved strength and muscular development. But it was the boy’s face that was most noticeable. Frank, open, of singular beauty in feature and outline, there was also upon it unmistakable evidences of intelligence, resoluteness and honesty of purpose. A close observer might also have detected traces of suffering or of sorrow.
The boy was warmly clad for the chilly air and piercing wind. Now and then, he drew his light overcoat about him, as though even his rapid walking did not make him entirely comfortable. He, moreover, looked eagerly ahead, like one who was watching for some signs of his destination. Reaching at length the foot of a long hill, he drew a sigh of relief, and said, aloud: “I must be near the place now. They said it was at the top of the first long hill I came to, and this must be it.” As he spoke, he quickened his pace to a run and soon reached the summit, quite out of breath, but with genial warmth in his body that he had not experienced for some hours.
Pausing now for a moment to catch his breath, he looked about him. Dim as was the light of the fast-falling evening, he could not help giving an exclamation of delight at the view he saw. To the west of him he saw the twinkling lights of several villages, through which he had already passed. To the north, there was a vast stretch of land, shrouded in darkness. To the south was the sound, its tossing waves capped with white, its islands like so many gems on the bosom of the angry waters. “It must be a beautiful place to live in, and I hope to find a home here,” he remarked, as he resumed his journey.

22. Why was it going to be a ‘terrible night’?
A. It was a cold day in April.
B. A storm was coming.
C. It was nearly night.
D. It was windy.
Answer : B

23. How does the author describe the traveller?
A. Tall, well-built youth
B. Weak youth with a bundle
C. Slim and beautiful
D. Strong but unattractive
Answer : A

24. What does the boy see to the south from the summit?
A. The flickering lights of villages
B. A vast land cloaked by nightfall
C. His destination with its islands and waves
D. Precious stones in the stormy waters
Answer : C

25. Why did the boy draw ‘a sigh of relief’ and ‘quicken his pace’?
A. He was far from his destination.
B. He was at the base of the first hill.
C. he reached the hill top.
D. he was breathless.
Answer : B

26. What were the boy’s possessions?
A. A worn-out suitcase and an overcoat
B. A small bundle of clothes and a heavy   stick
C. Warm clothes and some food
D. Unlimited wealth and nice clothes
Answer : B

27. What was not noticeable about the boy’s face?
A. Frank, open expression
B. Singular beauty in facial features
C. Intelligence, resoluteness
D. Dishonest intentions
Answer : D

28. What did the boy hope to find?
A. Home sweet home
B. A beautiful island
C. Numerous villages
D. Vast expanse of land
Answer : A


There never was a happier or more devoted husband than the male bluebird. He is the gay champion and escort of the female at all times. And while she is sitting he feeds her regularly. It is very pretty to watch them building their nest. The male is very active in hunting out a place and exploring the boxes and cavities. But he seems to have no choice in the matter and is anxious only to please and encourage his mate, who has the practical turn and knows what will do and what will not. After she has suited herself he applauds her immensely, and away the two go in quest of material for the nest, the male acting as guard and flying above and in advance of the female. She brings all the material and does all the work of building, he looks on and encourages her with gesture and song.
He acts also as inspector of her work, but I fear is a very partial one. She enters the nest with her bit of dry grass or straw, and, having adjusted it to her notion, withdraws and waits nearby while he goes in and looks it over. On coming out he exclaims very plainly, “Excellent! Excellent!” and away the two go again for more material.
I was much amused one bright summer day on seeing a bluebird feeding her young one in the shaded street of a large town. She had captured a cicada or harvest-fly, and after bruising it awhile on the ground, she flew with it to a tree and placed it in the beak of the young bird. It was a large morsel, and the mother seemed to have doubts of her chick’s ability to dispose it of, for she stood near and watched its efforts with great solicitude. The young bird struggled valiantly with the cicada, but made no headway in swallowing it, when the mother took it from him and flew to the sidewalk, and proceeded to break and bruise it more thoroughly. Then she again placed it in his beak, and seemed to say, “There, try it now,” and sympathised so thoroughly with his efforts that she repeated many of his motions and contortions.
