(Q. Nos. 69 t 78)

Read the passage given below and choose the best answer for each of the questions that
follow
What writers struggle to express through numerous columns, the cartoon in a pointed
one liner. Little wonder then, that the first thing most of us like to see when we pick up a
newspaper is the cartoon. Simple though it may seem, making a cartoon is an art that
requires a combination of hard work, training and a good sense of humour. Cartoonists say
that the cartoons that make us laugh the most are in fact the cartoons that are hardest to
make. Even celebrated cartoonists like R. K. Laxman admit that making a cartoon is not a
piece of cake. Laxman says he has to wait for over six hours, which includes spending a lot
of time scanning newspapers and television channels before any idea strikes him.
How does one become a cartoonist? There are few colleges or schools for cartoonists.
