A.1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.

Sunday is the day most looked forward to by everyone. But, it is also the one day which suddenly evaporates before you know where you are. Everyone knows the Saturday evening feeling with all the pleasures of expectancy, and the Sunday evening feeling already ruined by the thoughts of Monday. What happens to the day? It is the day on which so many items are thrust – promises made to children for an outing, promise of a little shopping, calling on someone, and so on and so forth. There is no way out except by stretching the twenty-four hours to do the work of forty-eight. Before one notices it the forenoon is gone.

In the morning one decides to stay a little longer in bed and one does it till one is worried out of bed by the noises, which start earlier than usual, because it is Sunday. A motor car with its engine going to pieces, children‟s shouts of joy because they have no school – all this goes on when the Sunday devotee is planning to spend an hour longer in the bed. The man gets up in a slightly frustrated mood and that is not a very good way to start the day. It knocks all charm out of existence at the very start itself. In this mood there is no use looking for a good day. It is better to accept that Sunday is gone for him.
