(Reading - 20 Marks)

1.     Read the passage given below  carefully  and answer the questions that follow by choosing the most appropriate  options  from  the ones given.

1.     The word 'Petroleum' comes from the Latin phrase petra oleum. The word petra means " rock " and oleum  means " oil ". Thus " petroleum  " means mineral  oil that forms underground  and is  obtained from wells  sunk into the ground.

2.      Petroleum and its products are of great importance to modern life. These products include gasoline (petrol), kerosene (paraffin), diesel oil, fuel oil, lubricants, bitumen and wax. No industrialist  can do without  them. Petrol  is  used in motor cars. Kerosene is used in oil lamps.Diesel oil is used in diesel engines for buses, lorries and ships. Fuel oil is burned to make steam in the boilers of steam ships and in furnaces of many kinds, such as the ones used in the manufacture of steel,  glass  and pottery. Lubricants are the oils and greases needed to make machinery of any kind run smoothly and easily. Bitumen is used in asphalt (a black sticky substance used for making roads).

3.     Petroleum was probably formed from dead plant and animal life of the seas. The dead remains decayed on the seabed until only fatty and oily substances were left.  These substances became buried under mud and as time  went on, the mud was squeezed into a layer  of rock while  the oily substances were changed into petroleum  and gas.

4.     The oil seldom remained in the rock where it was formed. Sometimes it travelled many miles  through  pores in the rock until it met a hard, non - porous rock which it could not get through. Here, trapped beneath a cap of non - porous rock, the oil can be found contained in the lower surface, like water in a sponge. Only drilling can prove that oil exists  at a particular place.

(A)    Petroleum,  generally,  means                 .

(a)    petra oleum                 (b)    rock oil

(c)    petrol                          (d)    mineral oil

(B) _____________ is  not a "petroleum"  product.

(a)    paraffin                        (b)    olive oil

 (c)    wax                              (d)    fuel oil

(C)    "Asphalt  " means __________.

(a)    a black  sticky  substance called  bitumen     (b)    a black sticky substance used for making roads

(c)    a mixture of lubricants used for making roads (d)    None of these

(D)    The existence  of oil at a particular place can be proved                   

(a)     by digging                  (b)    by using a stick

(c)    by going to that place (d)    by drilling

(E)    The word, in the passage, is  opposite  of 'hardly'  (In paragraph 2)

(a)    easily                            (b)    smoothly

(c)    great                            (d)    oily
