SECTION A — (Reading) 15

1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :

The hyena is part cat, part dog. Its legs and feet are those of a dog. Other parts of the body resemble the build of cats. The hyena is not a hunter. It is timid and cowardly. It depends for its food on what is left of animals killed by the bigger cats, such as the tigers or panthers. Because of this it has come to be known as the scavenger of the animal world. The hyena sometimes attacks animals which cannot either defend themselves or are sick or wounded. They are shy of man and usually avoid him. But sometimes they are known to have carried away children. The hyena does not roar or bark but laughs’. It produces a sound which, when heard at a distance, seems like laughter.

(a) How is the hyena ‘part cat’ and ‘part dog’ ? 

(b) Why has it been called ‘the scavenger of the animal world’ ? 

(c) How does the sound produced by the hyena seem like to the human ear ? 

(d) When does the hyena attack the animals ? 

(e) Find the word, from the passage, which means ‘easily frightened’. 

2. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :

Anger is the most commonly experienced emotion. If not managed in the correct way, it threatens to rule our lives in a hostile manner. It varies in intensity from mild irritation to violent anger. When you get angry, your heart rate increases and blood pressure rises, as do the levels of your energy hormones. Even when you have angry thoughts, it results in an increase in the blood pressure and the heart rate. Anger turned inward is an unexpressed anger. It can create its own set of problems. It may cause depression. One may also get a paralytic attack or a heart attack. People who are constantly putting others down, criticising everything haven’t learnt how to express their anger constructively. They aren’t likely to have many successful relationships.

(a) How does your body react when you are angry ? 

(b) What is anger ? 

(c) Mention shortcomings of people who keep on criticising everything and everybody. 

(d) What is an ‘anger turned inward’ ? 

(e) Which word in the passage means ‘unfriendly/showing enmity’ ?
