SECTION - A (READING)
1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
With every passing day the world is shrinking, and the globalization process is taking place. Advances in communication, transportation, and computer technology have all played a role in making the world a smaller place. With the right equipment, people can talk to friends and amily from the other side of the world. Travelling from America to Europe, which once required days at sea, now only takes hours in the air.Computer networking and fax machines allow world businesses to conduct negotiations within a matter of seconds. Images and personas such as the McDonalds's golden arches and Mickey Mouse are recognized worldwide. When Saddam Hussein was captured, nearly every country knew about it within a matter of hours. Yet, while globalization is taking place, it is not doing so without dispute. Many countries, in fact, feel threatened by Western culture and consequently, are acting out to preserve their own identities.
After all, one would not expect to find tacos served in Italian restaurants, nor would one expect pasta and breadsticks to be the major selling items in Mexican restaurants. So, while globalization is taking place on different levels, fundamental differences in culture and pride in one's own heritage both exist as strong forces preventing the emergence of a homogenized world society.
Slimness of the body is possibly the most defining characteristic of an attractive person. Movie stars and pop musicians such as Russell Crowe and Madonna are known worldwide. Mickey Mouse is the most recognized rodent on the planet! Coca-cola is one of the most requested beverages of choice while McDonalds's Big Mac is a popular meal eaten throughout the world. Technological advances seem to make the world a smaller place to live and businesses emerge in the most unexpected of places, different cultures of the world still maintain enough of a unique identity to dispel the notion that the world has become one global society.
a) Elaborate on the meaning of the statement `the world is shrinking‟.
b) What has made access to information an instant process?
c) Despite the fact that the world is shrinking, what is stopping us from staying united?
d) What do the facts given in the last paragraph conclude?
e) Give an advantage and disadvantage each of globalization.
f) How are the businesses getting affected due to developing technology?
g) Give a synonym of the word 'negotiation'.
h) Give an antonym of the word 'dispute'.
