SECTION A – (Reading)

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

1 Once a man saw three masons along with some labourers constructing a temple. He observed the masons for three days and found that though the three of them were doing the same kind of work, there was a marked difference in their approach to their job.

2 He saw that the first mason reported for his work late, did his work halfheartedly and sluggishly, enjoyed a longer respite, frequently checked the time on his wristwatch and left the work before time.

3 The second mason was very punctual in arriving and leaving, and did his work methodically. The third mason, however, would come before time, take little rest in the interval and often worked overtime.

4 The man naturally got curious and wanted to know the three masons’ outlook on their work. He asked them what they were doing. The first mason tapped his big belly with his hand and said, ‘‘I am earning food for myself.’’ The second said, ‘‘I am constructing a building.’’ The third mason looked at the huge building and said, ‘‘I am building the house of God.’’
