(20 MARKS)
(Time Suggested : 20 Minutes)

Question 4
Read the following passage.
The Internet is one of the greatest inventions of this modern age. It has transformed our lives in
many ways especially in providing lis access to information and opening up channels of
communication.
For students, the Internet is an invaluable tool that can provide important benefits. It has
opened up vast opportunities for learning at the click of the button. All you have to do is type in
the keywords of the information you are looking for and click the 'Enter' button on your
computer's keyboard and you will practically have hundreds ot articles to choose lrom within
seconds. In the past, one had to sift through books and magazines for hours before getting
relevant information on a topic.
The other advantage of the Internet is communication. Now we can communicate in a
fraction of second with a person who is in another part of the country or even the world. With
new advancement in mobile phones and other technological devices like the tablet,
communication has become cheap and easy. Many students also interact and socialise through
online social networks.
Despite the ease at which the Internet provides information and makes it easier to
communicate, over reliance on this technology can also bring problems. One of the main
problems associated with the Internet is copying. Nowadays, it has become easy for students to
copy someone else's work without even understanding the content. Another problem that has
cropped up is the dissemination of false or inaccurate information. If we are unable to analyse
or judge the information we read on the Internet, we may be misled into believing false claims.
Over reliance of today's younger generation on their mobile phones and laptops as a means
of communication is also taking its toll on their interpersonal skills. Experts believe that
spending increasing amounts of time online and communicating through the Internet rather
than face-to-face can be detrimental to our ability to form healthy relationships with others in
the future.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like stars at night.

No time to turn at Beautys glance,
And watch her feet how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
