SECTION A – (Reading) 
1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow : 
1 Choice of profession and career is of great importance. Success depends on the right and timely choice of a career. There are a great variety of careers and professions. The lack of proper counselling worsens the situation. It also results in unemployment and frustration which means a lot of waste of money, time and energy. The students should take the help of elders, teachers, and professionals in deciding their careers.
They should choose their career according to their aptitude and resources.
2 Young people are ambitious, impatient and eager to achieve good positions. They want to become high officials, executives and have top positions without considering their qualifications, skills etc. This is a wrong attitude. One should be realistic. One may dream of becoming a super film star and end up as a mere casual artist. Such high ambitions lead to disillusionment and unhappiness.
3 It is better to choose a career at the high school level than go for higher studies aimlessly. One should go for a vocational course at this stage.
There are many careers, professions and vocations to choose from. There are teaching, engineering, medicine, law, technology, business, trade, computer application career, government employment, positions in the police and army etc. But each of these requires special aptitude, training, and resources. One may have proper qualifications and aptitude for a career of a doctor or engineer. But if there are no financial resources to train for it, one cannot choose it as one’s career.
4 Choice of a career is not simply a matter of likes and dislikes. Financial resources play a very important role in deciding to choose a profession. For lack of funds, one will have to choose a far humbler career. One can take to politics if one has an aptitude for public life. It is a profession of
hard labour and perseverance. If you have strong optimism, ambition for fame and are prepared to face the worst, you are best suited for politics. If you have enough money and resources and want to grow very rich, you can choose business as your career. Therefore, be practical, logical and reasonable in choosing your profession. This is a crucial choice.
1.1 On the basis of your understanding of the above passage, answer any four of the following questions in 30 – 40 words each :
(a) State the factors that can help young people decide their career.
(b) What leads to disillusionment and unhappiness among young people ?
(c) What is the right time to make a career choice ? Why ?
(d) Why are financial resources important while choosing a career ?
(e) What are the qualities needed to become a politician ?

(a) One’s success in life depends on ___________ .
(b) Lack of proper counselling leads to ___________ .
(c) _________ play an important role in one’s choice of profession.
1.3 Find out words/phrases from the passage that mean the same as the following. Attempt any two.
(a) guidance (para 1)
(b) aspire (para 2)
(c) funds (para 3)
2. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow : 
1 The time Uncle Ken and I went for a walk and he insisted on going the zigzag way, I did the same. It was fun. But like all things to do with Uncle Ken, it landed us in a situation where we had to make a hasty exit. While we were being chased away by an irate man from his fields and were dashing away, Uncle Ken’s hat flew off. Later, when we had stopped panting, I remembered what Granny had said about looking at the funny side of situations and had a good laugh. Unfortunately, I don’t think Uncle Ken saw the lighter side at that moment.
