SECTION –A: READING 
 
Read the following passage carefully:
 
1. For millions of people in India, river Ganga is the most sacred river. It is considered as a mother and goddess. It is also a lifeline to millions of Indians who live along its course and depend on it for their daily needs. River Ganga is the third largest river in the world by the amount of water that flows through it. It is the longest river in India. The water of Ganga is used for irrigation, transportation and fishing.
 
2. The Gangetic plain formed by river Ganga is one of the most fertile lands on the earth. This is why almost 10% of the world population lives here and earns its livelihood. The Ganga, in India is the most worshipped water body. The irony here is that inspite of being the most worshipped river, it is also the dirtiest one. It carries some metals thrown out by tanneries, waste produced by industries and urban waste from different cities. All this has made river Ganga the fifth most polluted river in the world.
 
3. Another major reason that adds to the Ganga river pollution is the coal based power plants on its banks which burn tons of coal every year and produce tons of fly ash. This ash mixed with domestic waste water is released in the river. This bad situation calls for an urgent need to make efforts to reduce pollution and revive river Ganga.
 
4. To achieve these objectives, the Government of India has started a programme named “Namami Gange Programme”. The main pillars of this programme are sewage treatment, river surface cleaning, afforestation, river front development and public awareness. The importance of the success of „Namami Gange Programme‟ can be seen through the following lines: “If Ganga dies, India dies. If Ganga thrives, India thrives. No Ganga, No India.”
 
1.1 On the basis of your understanding of the above passage answer any eight of the questions that follow:
 
(a) For whom is river Ganga a lifeline?
 
(b) For what purposes is the Ganga river water used?
 
(c) Why does almost ten percent of the world population live in the Gangetic Plain?
 
(d) What are the pollutants that make river Ganga very dirty?
 
(e) How do the coal based power plants pollute river Ganga?
