Summative Assessment – I, 2011


Class - X


Q1. Read the following passage carefully: 

Back at the camp, as we rested for the night, I was struck by the absolute calm of the place. Oh, what a great bliss it was to get away from the unending stream of cars and trucks continuously blaring their horns even if it was only for a few days ! The peace and tranquility, we experienced, was really welcome. Next day, we awoke to the sound of the village cock. We washed at a brook rumbling near by, with clear and cool water fit to drink and cook with. The villagers insisted on cooking our meals for us and would not take a ‗no‘ for an answer. We toured the village again, visiting the ‗Balwadi school‘. Then we went to a few houses and were really surprised that they had electricity, radio sets and even a community TV provided by the government for the whole village. The chief occupation of the villagers was, of course, agriculture. A number of crops were grown and sold in the cities. I was delighted to see tube wells, sprinklers and fertilizers being used by the farmers. Truly, the villagers were progressing towards a good future. The men left their homes at dawn to work in the fields, coming home only for lunch and some rest, returning again to till the soil until dusk. The women helped them during the harvesting of the crops. They also sold their handicraft to a local cottage industry, thus contributing their share to the family income. Answer the following questions by selecting the most appropriate options from the ones given below :

(a) What struck the author back at the camp ?

   (i) the unending stream of cars and trucks blaring

   (ii) the absolute peace that was there in the rural place

   (iii) the comfort of the multi-storeyed buildings in the village

   (iv) the school in the village

(b) Who prepared the meals for the author and his friends ?

   (i) the villagers who were simple and helpful

   (ii) the village sarpanch

   (iii) the author himself with his friends

   (iv) none of the above

(c) Why did the author feel that the villagers were progressing towards a good future ?

   (i) because the villagers, both men and women, were hard -

   (ii) working and each one contributed his/her share to the family income

  (iii) because the villagers were farmers but used advanced technology intelligently because many houses had electricity, radio sets and even a community TV and a ‗Balwadi school‘ to educate children

   (iv) all of the above

(d) The meaning of the word ‗rumble‘ is :

   (i) move things about

   (ii) crumple

   (iii) disturb the peace, around

   (iv) make a deep, heavy, continuous sound

(e) The writer is a man from :

   (i) a village    (ii) a city

   (iii) a forest   (iv) a foreign country
