1.Read the poem given below and complete the summary, by filling in the appropriate word. Supply one word for each blank.

The birth of a girl child, what should it bring?

A life, joyful  and happy;

But what does it bring?

A sad life of sorrow and misery.

What is  the future for her?

In this  dark world,  occupied by the distinguished  man.

A life by day or by night.

Woman, you have woken up and found your true place,

In today's  world  of maze.

Now, here she is shining bright

Gingerly  but surely ascending the throne of radiating light.

Woman, behold  your future empire,

Ruled by your dynamic will

Your fame will engulf this earth like a raging fire

And you woman will flow steadily and still.

The birth of a girl child  should make one's 

(a)_________ happy. But, why  do people feel  sad and (b)________? To her, the world  seems to be dark, because it is occupied by the distinguished man. However, she manages to find a (c)________for herself,  in today's  world  of maze. The woman is  sure to (d)_________the throne of glory. Her fame can be compared to a (e)________fire.

2.     Read the passage given below  and complete the statements which  follow :

Happiness has been defined as, "the  enjoyment or pleasurable    satisfaction  attendant upon well-being or welfare of some kind or other." It is regarded by many as "the state of satisfaction, which is experienced in the pursuit, but more obviously in the attainment, of that which is regarded as desirable or good."  A man who becomes a money-making machine,  regards money as the highest  goal.  He claims  that money is  the secret of happiness. But, does mere money make a man happy?  What about the dyspeptic; insomniac  unhappy millionaires?  They cannot buy appetite,  sleep  or happiness with any amount of money.  It is happiness that we all seek in one form or the other. Man's misconception  of happiness has taken him astray.  It is  his  avarice for money that stands as an obstacle  in the way.

(1)    Happiness is  the satisfaction  experienced with  the attainment of (a)                   

(2)     A  man  who  has  become  a  money-making  machine  (b)                  

(3)    Money cannot buy the millionaires  (c)                   

(4)     Man  is  led  astray  by  his  (d)                  

(5)     The  obstacle  in  his  way  to  progress  is  (e)
