Read the Passages given below and answer the questions:-

What is it that enables some people to gain whatever goal they set for themselves while others do not succeed? What makes some men winners in the world and others losers? If you want to win, we must find the right answer to this very important question. Are there certain qualities or techniques which a person can use to achieve success regardless of his goal? To confirm this we must carefully study the lives of successful men of the past as well as the present day. No doubt there are certain characteristics which are commonly found among all these great people. But an academic or college education is not necessarily one of them. Such an education perhaps could be an asset. But then considering how many of our educated youth are keen to take on a job of clerk and end up their lives as clerks one may even doubt whether the college education is really an asset.

Let us remember this. College education by itself is neither good nor bad. It all depends on what use you put it to. The important thing is, if you happen to possess it you can use it to advantage. If you do not have it, there is no real cause to worry. Many have succeeded not only in India but also in other industrially advanced countries having attained great success without college education. For instance, Thomas Edison had taken only three month's schooling. The great Abraham Lincoln was practically self-educated. Benjamin Franklin did not attend the school at all. The Wright Brothers were not scientists but bicycle mechanics by their basic profession. Success also does not necessarily depend upon one's birth, environment, wealth etc. H.G Wells was born in poverty and had to fight ill health continually

The study of the great, successful, self-made men all over the world, whether of the past or of the present, spotlights very important common factors. They knew how to get along successfully with others. They knew how to sell themselves to strangers and friends, to their employers and employees, to their neighbours, families, in fact to everyone with whom they came into contact daily. They knew how to sell their ideas, knowledge, talent and service. They knew how to get along with men, influence and motivate them.

Success depends to a great extent on what you do with your ideas, talents or gifts Invariably it is not what you know but what you do about what you know. It is not what have, but what is done about it that spells the difference between success and failure.

Answer the following Questions:

Can college education be a factor to ensure success?

1.Why is it doubtful that college education can be even an asset?

2.Does success depend on external factors?

3.Which is the most important factor behind a man's success?

4.How can one's ideas, talents or gifts contribute to one's succeed?

5.Do you think that the qualities of head and heart alone can make a man successful?

Find out a word from the passage which means

1.Something that you hope to achieve

2.Succeeded in getting something 

Suggested answers of the above Question:-

1.No, college education is not necessarily a factor to ensure success. At best it can be an asset one can make use of

2.Many of educated youths are keen to become clerks. This shows that college education being even an asset is doubtful.

3.No, success does not depend on external factors such as birth, environment, wealth etc.

4.The most important factor behind a man's success is his ability to get along successfully with others.

5.One can make use of one's ideas, talents or gifts to win people and inspire them.

6.I think so. Success does not necessarily depend on one's birth, environment wealth etc.
