1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow : 

1 Sirpur is to Chhattisgarh what Nalanda is to Bihar. But the difference is, Nalanda was discovered a long time ago while Sirpur is the new entrant on the Buddhist circuit. Situated on the Mahanadi, this Chhattisgarh city is set to surpass other Buddhist destinations in the country.

2 Excavations in recent years by the Archaeological Survey of India have bared a Buddha statue going back to 6th century A.D. and other Indian sculptures, including a temple complex, which is four times bigger than Nalanda and contains stone carvings that outdo even those found in Khajuraho.

3 Sirpur had added a new tourism dimension to the multi-faceted Chhattisgarh, already endowed with a unique and rich cultural heritage. Amazing ancient monuments, palaces, exquisitely carved temples, ancient caves, rock paintings, rare and endangered wildlife, scenic beauty, unique tribal culture, and now Sirpur, with its wonderful ancient moorings, have turned Chhattisgarh into an exciting and rewarding holiday destination.

4 Archaeologists claim that Sirpur was an important Buddhist study centre, four times bigger than Nalanda. Sirpur was the place where a major civilisation of Central India flourished. Excavations have revealed that Sirpur was the capital of the Somvanshi kings of Dakshin Koshala. Chinese chronicler Hiuen Tsang‖s travelogue gives a picture of a prosperous city, Shripur. He mentions in the travelogue that there were about 100 Buddhist monasteries and nearly 10000 priests, all from the Mahayana sect, and that the king had deep faith in Buddhism. According to legends, the queen of Sirpur was very spiritual. After her daily bath at the river, she would sit on a lotus leaf and meditate. The city was prosperous and no taxes were levied on its citizens. It was a ―golden era‖ in the true sense of the term as it ―rained‖ gold coins for two-and-a-half days each year.

1.1 On the basis of your reading of the above passage, answer the following questions :

(a) Both Nalanda and Sirpur are related to Buddhism. What is the difference between the two ?
