Summative Assessment – I, 2011


Class - X


Q1. Read the following passage carefully:

My late husband Albert was on the front line of polio research. In 1961, 30 years after he began studying polio, his oral vaccine was introduced in the United States and distributed widely. Forty years since polio has been eradicated in the Western Hemisphere, the WHO reports, that with a fullscale effort, polio could be eliminated from the rest of the world too. Without animal research, polio would be claiming thousands of lives each year. Animals are needed to test every new batch of vaccine that is produced for today‟s children. Animal activists claim that vaccines really didn‟t end the epidemic ---that, with improvements in social hygiene, polio was dying out anyway, before the vaccines were developed. This is untrue. In fact, advanced sanitation was responsible in part for the dramatic rise in the number of paralytic polio cases in the 50s. Improvements in sanitation practices reduced the rate of infection, and the average age of those infected by the polio virus went up. Older children and young adults were more likely than infants to develop paralysis from their exposure to the polio virus. The polio-free generations have grown up to be doctors, teachers, business leaders, government officials and parents. Cancer, heart disease, strokes and AIDS are far more lethal realities to them now than polio. Yet, those who support an „animal rights‟ agenda that would cripple research and halt medical science in its tracks are slamming the door on the possibilities of new treatments and cures. by Heloisa Sabin
