Directions (Q. 41-55): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below
it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some
of the questions.
Long ago there was a poor Brahmin named Krishnan. He could not find enough work to do. Sometimes,
he and his family had to go without food. At last Krishnan decided to leave his village in search of work. Early
next morning, he left the house. He walked the whole day until he came to a thick jungle. He was tired, thirsty
and hungry. While looking around for water to drink, he found a well. He went to the well and looked in.
There he saw a jaguar, a monkey, a snake and a man. They had all fallen into the well. 0, noble Brahmin, the
jaguar called out to him, Please help me out, so that I can go back to my family. But you are a jaguar. said
Krishnan. How do I know you will not kill me? Dont be afraid of me. I promise I will not do you any
harm, replied the jaguar. Krishnan reached into the well and pulled out the jaguar. The jaguar thanked him
and said, Im Shersingh. I live in a cave in the mountains. I shall be most delighted if I can repay my debt to
you someday. Krishnan then heard the monkey calling out to him from the well. The Brahmin at once pulled
the monkey out. The monkey thanked the Brahmin. If you are ever in need of food, just drop in at my place
below that big mountain. Bali is my name. Now the snake called out to him for help. Help you ! exclaimed
Krishnan. You are a snake. What if you bite me? I shall never bite you, said the snake. So Krishnan pulled
the snake out of the well. The snake said. Remember, if you are ever in any difficulty, just call out my name
Naagesh, and wherever you are, I shall find you. The jaguar, the monkey and the snake took leave of the
Brahmin. But before they left, they spoke to him about the man in the well. Please do not help him, said
Shersingh. If you do, said Naagesh, you will be in trouble yourself. As soon as they left, the man in the well
began to call out for help. Krishnan felt sorry for the man and pulled him out of the well. Thank you for your
kindness, said the man. I am Seth Ghanshyamdas. I am a goldsmith. If you ever need my help, dont hesitate
to visit my humble house near the city. The goldsmith then left for home.
After some time, the Brahmin continued his journey. But he could not find any work. He then remembered Shersingh, Bali, Naagesh and Seth Ghanshyamdas. He thought it was time to seek their help. He first
went to Bali. The monkey was overjoyed to see him. He gave him a warm welcome and offered him some
really delicious fruits. The Brahmin told him how grateful he was. Now Krishnan went to see Shersingh, the
jaguar. As soon as Shersingh saw Krishnan coming, he ran out to welcome him. He gave Krishnan a beautiful
gold necklace and other precious jewellery. Krishnan thanked Shersingh for the jewellery and parted. His
journey had at last brought him luck, he thought. He would be able to sell the ornaments for a good price. But
who could help him to sell the ornaments? He then remembered Seth Ghanshyamdas. He went to him. The
goldsmith was glad to see Krishnan. I have come to ask for your help, said Krishnan. Here are some
ornaments. Please give me a good price for them. Seth Ghanshyamdas took the jewellery :and examined it
carefully. I shall certainly help you, he said. But let me show them to another goldsmith. Please wait here.
I will be right back. He then went out with the ornaments. Seth at once rushed to the Palace of the King. He
said. A man brought these ornaments to me and asked me to sell them. But they are the ornaments I made for
the Prince who is missing. Who is this man? Where is he ? thundered the King. This rogue must have
murdered my little Prince and robbed his jewels! He is a Brahmin named Krishnan, Your Majesty, replied
the goldsmith, and he is there, in my house, The King called for his most dreaded soldiers. Arrest the
Brahmin who is in the goldsmiths house and throw him into the darkest dungeons of the kingdom! roared the

King. The Kings guard stormed into the goldsmiths house and seized Krishnan. Krishnan was thrown into a
dark dungeon to await his execution. He then remembered the words of Naagesh, the snake. So he called out
to him. Suddenly, almost like magic, Naagesh slithered his way down a narrow window into the dingy cell.
O, Lord ! hissed Naagesh, how did you manage to get yourself arrested? Krishnan cried and then told the
snake what had happened. I have a plan. hissed Naagesh. I shall creep into the Queens room and bite
her, said Naagesh, She will faint. No matter what they do, she will remain asleep. The poison will remain in
her body until you place your hand on her, forehead, explained Naagesh. He then left Krishnan and went to
the palace. He crept into the Queens room and bit her. The Queen fainted. The sad news that the Queen had
been bitten by a snake spread all over the Kingdom. Vaidyas came from far and near, but their medicines had
no effect. No one could revive the Queen. Finally, the King declared that anyone who could cure the Queen
would be handsomely rewarded. Many people went to the palace but all of them failed. I can cure the
Queen, Krishnan told the guards. At once they took him to the palace and the King took him to the Queen.
Krishnan sat beside the Queen and placed his hand on her forehead. Soon, she opened her eyes and sat up.
The King was overjoyed and shed tears of happiness. He embraced Krishnan and thanked him. Your
Majesty, said Krishnan, I Was sent to prison for a crime I did not commit. Krishnan told the King the

goldsmith arrested. The King then presented Krishnan with a large house and a thousand pieces of gold.
