Directions : Read the passage given below and answer the

appropriate option.
Surviving a Snakebite
1 Annually, there are a million cases of
snakebite in India and of these, close to
50,000 succumb to the bites.
2 When you look around the countryside,
where most bites occur, and notice
people’s habits and lifestyles, these
figures aren’t surprising. People walk
barefoot without a torch at night when
they are most likely to step on a
foraging venomous snake.
3 We encourage rodents by disposing
waste food out in the open, or by storing
foodgrains in the house. Attracted by
the smell of rats, snakes enter houses
and when one crawls over someone
asleep on the floor and the person
twitches or rolls over, it may bite in
4 Once bitten, we don’t rush to the
hospital. Instead, we seek out the
nearest conman, tie tourniquets, eat
vile tasting herbal chutneys, apply
poultices or spurious stones,
cut/slice/suck the bitten spot, and other
ghastly time-consuming deadly
5 As Rom cattily remarks : ‘‘If the snake
hasn’t injected enough venom, even
popping an aspirin can save your life.’’
That’s the key — snakes inject venom
voluntarily and we have no way of
knowing if it has injected venom, and if
it is a lethal dose. The only first aid is to
immobilise the bitten limb like you
would a fracture, and get to a hospital
for anti-venom serum without wasting
91. Of the people who are bitten by snakes in
India, the fatality rate is
(1) 5%
(2) 25%
(3) 50%
(4) 100%
92. According to the author, people living in
which parts are more prone to snake bites ?
(1) Crowded cities
(2) The open
(3) Villages
(4) Forests
93. Storing foodgrains in the house is one of the
causes for snake bites because
(1) foodgrains attract rats which in turn
attract snakes
(2) snakes enter houses in search of stored
(3) the smell of foodgrains brings both
snakes and other animals into the
(4) stored foodgrains create convenient
hiding places for snakes within houses
94. ‘... it may bite in defence’ (para-3). This
observation implies that
(1) a snake is very good at defending itself
(2) a snake may bite a human being in
order to defend its prey
(3) human beings are defenceless against
(4) a snake bites a human only when it is
95. What, according to the author, is the reason
for the high fatality rate due to snakebites in
India ?
( 48 )
(1) Shortage of medical facilities
(2) Lack of scientific knowledge about
(3) Shortage of anti-venom serum
(4) Shortage of doctors
96. In the instance of a snakebite, what should
we do immediately ?
(1) Tie torniquets
(2) Eat herbal chutneys
(3) Immobilise the bitten part and get antivenom
(4) Cut-slice-suck the bitten spot
97. Pick out a word from the passage which
means ‘to go around in search of food’. (Para
(1) foraging
(2) countryside
(3) venomous
(4) barefoot
98. ‘‘If the snake hasn’t injected enough venom,
even popping an aspirin can save your life.’’
This sentence can be rewritten without
changing the meaning as
(1) When a snake has not injected enough
venom, life can be saved even by
swallowing an aspirin.
(2) Life can be saved even by swallowing an
aspirin, even though the snake hasn’t
injected enough venom.
(3) Even popping an aspirin can save your
life, in spite of a snake not having
injected enough venom.
(4) As long as you are popping an aspirin to
save your life, the snake will not inject
enough venom.
99. Pick out a word from the passage, that means
‘having the power to cause death’. (Para 5)
(1) immobilise
(2) voluntarily
(3) lethal
(4) serum

questions that follow (Q. No. 100–105) by selecting the

Common Cold
1 Go hang yourself, you old M.D.!
You shall not sneer at me.
Pick up your hat and stethoscope,
Go wash your mouth with laundry soap;
I contemplate a joy exquisite
I’m not paying you for your visit.
I did not call you to be told
My malady is a common cold.
2 By pounding brow and swollen lip;
By fever’s hot and scaly grip;
By those two red redundant eyes
That weep like woeful April skies;

By handkerchief after handkerchief;
This cold you wave away as naught
Is the damnedest cold man ever caught !
3 Bacilli swarm within my portals
Such as were ne’er conceived by mortals,

In some Olympic laboratory;

answer the questions that follow (Q. No. 121 to 129)
by selecting the most appropriate option.
1 If you are living in a house with a child on
the cusp of becoming a teenager,
congratulations. I’m not being sarcastic; you
are about to embark on an amazing voyage.
It may be a bumpy ride, but on the journey
your child will grow, change and blossom
into the adult she will one day become. If
you are living with an older teenager, I won’t
try to sugar coat it : you will meet
challenges. The raging hormones; the
pressures of exams; the angst of
relationships with friends and eventually
lovers — modern teenagers are under so
much pressure, it’s no wonder they get
moody !
2 Living with teens can be difficult because
your child is in the process of great change.
Gone is the baby who adored you without
question; only shadows remain of the child
who hung on your every word of wisdom.
Your teenager is becoming a young adult,
trying to find his way in the world. He is
now programmed to reject your values and
kick against your authority. Some days,
when arguments are raging, music is
blaring, dishes pile up in the sink and your
daughter misses her curfew again, you may
feel that you just can’t bear it any longer.
3 But if you take a step backwards, breathing
deeply for a moment, you will be able to see
that most of the problems and irritations we
have parenting teens are small ones. It’s
only because we are so close to them that
they look so big. It’s all about perspective.
Your baby is metamorphosing into the adult
he or she will be, and it’s hard to watch. You
want to save them from making your
mistakes, and make their lives easier. News
flash : you can’t. What you can—and must—
do is always be there to listen. There will be
times when you are the last person she
wants to talk to, but you must make sure
the opportunity is always there. Be

The Hand Holders:
A Tribute To Caregivers
There is no job more important than yours,
no job anywhere else in the land.
You are the keepers of the future;
you hold the smallest of hands.
Into your care you are trusted
to nurture and care for the young,
and for all of your everyday heroics,
your talents and skills go unsung.
You wipe tears from the eyes of the injured.
You rock babies brand new in your arms.
You encourage the shy and unsure child.
You make sure they are safe from all harm.
You foster the bonds of friendships,
letting no child go away mad.
You respect and you honour their emotions.
You give hugs to each child when they’re sad.
You have more impact than does a professor,
a child’s mind is moulded by four;
so whatever you lay on the table
is whatever the child will explore.
Give each child the tools for adventure,
let them be artists and writers and more;
let them fly on the wind and dance on the stars
and build castles of sand on the shore.
It is true that you don’t make much money
and you don’t get a whole lot of praise,
but when one small child says ‘‘I love you’’,
you’re reminded of how this job pays.
