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

In many countries only one language-mostly the mother-tongue—is enough to satisfy the need for expression of their inhabitants. In India, however, the position is more complicated. Here an educated man is called upon to master more than one language. There is, first of all the language that he learns on his mother's lap, and through which he expresses his first need and feelings. Naturally, it is in this that he gains the most proficiency, But, since India is a very large country, we really need an extra language as a means of communicating with states other than our own.

It is for this reason that many people want a lingua franca for India but even this is not enough. On top of this, an educated Indian requires the mastery of an international language, one that is widely understood and is used in the dealings of one country with another. Ideally speaking then, the educated Indian should be able to read and write in three languages and, moreover, should be able to express himself in all the three with ease and fluency. As our contact with the English language has been long and it is the most widely used language in the world, it is in our own interest to be proficient in this language.

1.For what is mother-tongue enough?
2.What is the position in India?
