Q1. Read the following passage carefully: 

We enjoy winter only because we have ways of keeping our body warm. But this season is not a comfortable one for many animals. If they did not have enough fur or feathers, they could not have borne the cold. Their body temperature drops in winter and they keep alive by hibernating. Animals that are cold blooded, like frogs, toads, lizards, snakes and turtles sleep through the winter and are stirred into activity only when the environment gets comfortably warm. Warm-blooded animals go through phases of sleep and wakefulness. They sleep through most of the winter, but get up once in a while to feed or find some food, which is usually stored up in their winter home. Hedgehogs, badgers, bears, bats and squirrels are some warm blooded hibernators. A number of insects die in winter while many others survive the cold by hibernating in the form of eggs, larva or pupa. Adult insects like butterflies, moths, house flies and mosquitoes hibernate in storehouses, holes in the ground, caves or other sheltered places.

Q2. Read the following passage carefully: 

According to a legend, the world originated in the Garden of Eden—a place of virgin/ beauty and nature‟s bounty. Words such as pollution, disaster, poverty, population were unheard of. Today, we see this beautiful Eden being continually ravaged and destroyed. The root cause of this destruction is that man has forgotten that he did not weave the web of life and that he is merely a thread in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does unto himself. For the sake of industrial development and raising the standards of living, man has shamefully and grossly neglected the fellow members of the living world and the environment in general. A big chunk of responsibility for controlling the disease hurting our polluted and populous planet rests with industries and business. Three major impacts that industries have had on the world are water contamination, air pollution and deforestation. All these factors have brought about great ecological imbalance which in turn is affecting crucial elements such as rainfall and climate and also challenging the existence of certain plants and animals.

(a) This „Garden of Eden‟ is being harmed by __________.

   (i) pollution.       (ii) poverty.

   (iii) population.   (iv) all of the above.

(b) To develop the standards of living, man had ignored __________.

   (i) industrial development.

   (ii) web of life.

   (iii) living world and environment.

   (iv) fellow members
