SECTION - A (Reading) 

A.1 Read the following poem carefully :

A GREEN CORNFIELD

                                                                          The earth was green, the sky was blue;

                                                                                 I saw and heard one sunny morn

                                                                          A skylark hang between the two,

                                                                                 A singing speck above the corn.

                                                                          A stage below in gay accord,

                                                                                  White butterflies danced on wing,

                                                                          And still the singing skylark soared,

                                                                                   And silent sank and soared to sing.

                                                                          The cornfield stretched a tender green

                                                                                    To right and left beside my walks;

                                                                          I knew he had a nest unseen

                                                                                    Somewhere among the million stalks.

                                                                          And as I paused to hear his song

                                                                                     While swift the sunny moments slid,

                                                                          Perhaps his mate sat listening long,

                                                                                     And listened longer than I did.

A.2 Read the passage given below : 

1. Why is it that there are very few women players in our orchestras ? If one could reply flatly - sex discrimination: they don’t want women in orchestras - that would be a definite answer. But one can’t say that. As a matter of fact there are, if not many, a few women playing today in symphony orchestras. Nevertheless, it is true that male orchestral players are in an overwhelming majority. Why is that ? I’m afraid, there is no one answer. There are physical reasons why women don’t perform well on certain instruments. The average woman is not likely to possess sufficient lung power and sheer muscular strength to play the tuba just as an average woman’s hands are not likely to be large enough to finger a double bass satisfactorily. But what about the other instruments ?
