CBSE Class 5 English Unseen Passage G. Students should do unseen passages for Class 6 English which will help them to get better marks in English class tests and exams. Unseen passages are really scoring and practicing them on regular basis will be very useful. Refer to the unseen passage below with answers.

Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions given below:

It seems to be essential to the mental health and happiness of every individual that he should have something to which he can assert exclusive possession- something, as we say, that he can call his own. Delight in owning things usually shows itself as early as the second year of life, when the words "my" and "mine" are among the first that the child learns to utter.

Parents and teachers can make use of this characteristic of human nature in many ways. In the home a child can be led to acquire orderly habits by being encouraged to arrange his own possessions tidily; and this valuable training can be continued at school, where he can be helped to keep carefully arranged samples of his own handiwork, such as drawings, paintings, specimens of his handwriting, well done arithmetic exercises and the like.

Closely linked with pride of possession is an impulse that appears early in the life of most children-the impulse to collect things. This too the educator can use to good effect. By the exercise of a little tact he can inspire a child to collect postage stamps, and may thus lead him to a lasting interest in history and geography. Or, by encouraging him to collect wild flowers, shells or pebbles, he may help him to become a naturalist.
