ENGLISH

(Language and Literature)

SECTION A — (Reading) 15

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

Most of us pay little attention to courtesies. How often do we say ‘please’ when we ask for something or ‘thank you’ when we get it ? ‘Please’ and ‘thank you’ are the niceties of ordinary conversation which we prefer to ignore. Courtesies are not just a matter of good breeding but also good manners. They are more than just saying the right thing at the right time. We are supposed to know what we are doing. We should also ensure that our inefficiency or ignorance does not hurt even unintentionally. For example, if we want to invite someone we do not know, we may invite him formally through written invitation or through telephone personally. But getting it done by an assistant is an act of discourtesy.

(a) How can we know if we are paying any attention to the courtesies of ordinary conversation ? 

(b) What do the expressions ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ indicate ? 

(c) How are courtesies ‘more than just saying the right thing at the right time’ ? 

(d) When does an act of inviting someone we do not know become discourteous ? 

(e) Which word in the passage means ‘ancestry/with hereditary qualities’ ? 

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

From the ancient times people have considered the lion as a wonderful animal. A full grown male lion looks majestic and strong with its beautiful, thick bushy mane. People admire the lion so much that he has been called the king of all wild animals and has found an important place in the art and literature of the world. Long ago, the lions were found everywhere in India. Today they are confined to the Gir forests of Kathiawar. Their number has declined considerably due to the indiscriminate killing by the people who hunt them for sport. The lions live in groups called prides. A pride may have four or more, sometimes even twenty lions of all ages. The lioness in a pride does most of the killing.

(a) How does a full grown male lion look like ? .
