SUMMARY OF THE CHAPTER
The ant being a smallest insect is an intelligent and hardworking creature. As it is the commonest insect, we know a number of facts about it. An ant has feelers which is also called antennae. It uses them to talk and greet other ants while moving up or down the wall.. The black or red ones are the commonest among them. They live in their comfortable homes, generally called nests or anthills, just below the surface of the soil. Each anthill has hundreds of little rooms and passages. The queen ant lays eggs in some of these rooms. Other rooms are nurseries, stores, reserved quarters and separate barracks etc. ants. Ants of each category carry their duty sincerely without disturbing the other. This is the reason why the ant enjoys a peaceful life.
The queen ant is the mother of entire population of the colony. Its life span is about fifteen years. After wedding flight with a male ant (drone) on a hot summer day, it comes back to earth without wings to lay eggs. In a few days grubs come out of the eggs. Soldier ants guard them while worker ants feed them and help them in growing up. After two or three week grubs become cocoons which then break and perfect ants appear. New ants are taught and trained by old ants. After a few weeks’ training, the small ants become ready to work. An anthill is also the home of other creatures like beetles, lesser breed of ants and the greenfly. The ants give them shelter because they get sweet juices and pleasant smell from them. The greenfly is the ants’ cow. The ants give training to them to give honeydew with a touch of their antennae. Man can learn hard work, sense of duty and discipline, cleanliness, care for the young ones from it.

Q.1 On the basis of your reading of the above passage, complete the following statements by choosing the correct option from those given below –
The oldest stone buildings in the world are the pyramids of Egypt. They have stood nearly for 5000 years, and it seems likely that they will continue to stand for thousands of years yet. They are over eighty of them scattered along the bank of the Nile, some of which are different in shape from true pyramids. The most of these are the ‘Step’ pyramid and the ‘Bent’ pyramid. Most of the damage suffered by the pyramids has been at the hands of men who were looking for treasure, or more often, for stone to use in the modern buildings. The dry climate of Egypt has helped to preserve the pyramids and their very shape has made them less likely to fall into ruins.
One thing is certain: there must have been months of planning before they could begin to build. Certain rules had to be followed and certain problems overcome. The pyramid has to build on the west side of the Nile ; the side on which the sun sets. This was for religious reasons.

The pyramid could not be too far from the Nile, however, as the stones to build it needed to be carried in boats down the nearest point. The builders also had to find to find rock, which was not likely to crack under the great weight of the Pyramid. Finally, the pyramid to be near the capital, or better still, near the king’s palace so that he could visit it easily and personally check the progress being made on the final resting place of his body.
