Some people say that mans desire for war is due to his fight for survival and that war is necessary to preserve his virility.
Yet war nowadays leaves a legacy of the weakest men and stimulates not the noble but the bestial qualities of mankind.
Adventure of some kind is necessary for man; he will inevitably deteriorate physically and mentally if his life is one of
ease and luxury lived in an atmosphere of' Safety First. This is the real reason behind our love of sports in the open air.
It is no use being a millionaire if one suffers from chronic indigestion; a tramp with good innards is far happier. Nothing
that money can buy is worthwhile without good health. There is no better way to perfect health and physical fitness
than to walk over or climb hills and mountains. But mountains give us much more than mere physical fitness; they

Placebo literally means "I shall please. Placebos are inert substances given to some volunteers in a given study while
other volunteers are treated with experimental drugs whose effect is tested by measuring the difference in response
to the powerless placebo and to the drug. Some of a group of volunteers who had just had their wisdom teeth extracted
were given morphine to alleviate their pain; the others swallowed a placebo they believed to be morphine. Many of the
placebo recipients said they experienced dramatic relief from their pain. However, when a drug that blocks the effects of
enaorphine was given them, the pain returned almost immediately .The test confirmed something very important:
When a patient believes he or she has been given a pain reliever, the brain releases chemicals to substantiate that
belief. In short, the placebo effect is an act of faith. Very recent studies have determined that the placebo effect is much
more powerful than previously imagined. So be careful what you believe and pretend it may come to pass.
Q134. What is peculiar about the volunteers response to drugs given following the consumption of placebo ?
(A) They experienced relief after taking the medicine
(B) They , felt pain after taking them

There is a general impression among the public that our schools and colleges educate students. That some kind of
uncritical knowledge is imparted to the students is beyond any doubt.
Students are made to copy notes, learn them by heart, and reproduce it during examination. Those who learn by heart
and reproduce it to the exact letter are considered as the best. Others who do not succeed in the exercise are termed
'failures.' The examination results are all a grading in memory work which has nothing to do with education. An
educated person is one who has developed qualities of mind and heart, and who can critically evaluate things and
objectively decide the course of his action based on factual information.
The impressions that the students gather in the years of their academic life are important for their future. In fact,
attitudes to life are built on what is happening in the academic institutions. The type, of things that are taught, the ways
and methods of communication and the mental attitudes of those who teach are primary in education. What are some
of the things taught in our institutions? The first thing that the student learns is that the teacher is always right. Students
do not know.
Q139.What is the impression of the author about our schools and colleges ?
(A)That they educate students
(B)That they help students to develop qualities of mind and heart
(C)That at best they impart some kind of uncritical knowledge

PASSAGE-IV
A dog is very sensitive to atmosphere. He knows when you have lost your temper almost before you do and if you want
to do anything with a dog never lose your temper! Whatever you do with him, do calmly and under full control,
especially when you correct him. Talking of this awareness of atmosphere, his utter loyalty can lead to great jealousy.
When I married, my little dog-Paragon was his name-nearly wrecked the home with- his jealousy. The bottom, had fallen
out of his life when an intruder came into the management of the house, and he would sit about with his back to us, his
back a speaking picture of misery, looking blindly into space. It was years before he would condescend to recognize my
wife's existence. More dangerous is the jealousy a dog can develop towards a new baby in the family. Another thing to
remember is that a dog is fond of company, specially the company of his own kind. In a wild state, they habitually go
about in groups, either small family groups or in packs, and you see the same instinct at work, in civilization. Dogs left
loose in streets and in parks will nearly always gravitate into gangs, following each other looking around for mischief,
adventure like so many urchins. So it is a good thing to let your dog have plenty of friends. The lonely dog will often
become a fighter.
Q144.The word gravitate in the context means :
(A) join
(B) form
(C) be attracted

For the past several years, scientists have issued ominous warnings about the future of the Earth's climate. Predictions
of dramatic global change arising from the continued dumping of industrial by- products into the atmosphere and forest
loss of massive scale can no longer be ignored. Compelling scientific evidence strongly suggests that world climate
patterns, previously regarded as reliably stable, could be thrust into a state of turmoil. Emissions of natural and
synthetic gases are increasing the heat-trapping capacity of the atmosphere through a phenomenon known as the
greenhouse effect. The projected impacts of this worldwide climatic disruption dwarf many of the environmental
problems of the past.

PASSAGE-6
Real policemen, both in Britain and the United States, hardly recognize any resemblance between their lives and what
they see on TV- if they ever get home in time. There are similarities, of course, but the cops don't think much of them.
The first difference is that a policemans real life revolves round the law. Most of his training is in criminal law. He has to
know exactly what actions are crimes and what evidence can be used to prove them in court. He has to know nearly as
much law as a professional lawyer, and what is more, he has to apply It on his feet, in the dark and rain, running down
an alley after someone he wants to talk to.
Little of his time is spent in chatting to scantily-clad ladies or in dramatic confrontations with desperate criminals. He will
spend most of his working life typing millions of words on thousands of forms about hundreds of sad, unimportant
people who are guilty-or not-of stupid, petty crimes.
Most television crime drama is about finding the criminal : as hes arrested, the story is over. In real life, finding criminals
is seldom much of a problem. Except in very serious cases like murders and terrorist attacks where failure to produce
results reflects on the standing of the police-little effort is spent on searching. The police have an elaborate machinery
which eventually shows up most wanted men.
Q154. The everyday life of a policeman or detective is :
(A) exciting and glamorous
(B) full of danger
(C) spent in recording details about small thefts and crimes
(D) wasted on unimportant matter
Q155. When murders and terrorist attacks occur the police :
(A) prefer to wait for the criminal to give himself away
(B) spend a lot of effort on trying to track their man down
(C) try to make a quick arrest in order to keep up their reputation
(D) usually fail to produce results
Q156. Which of the following statements is correct ?
(A) Policemen feel that the image of their lives shown on TV is not accurate
(B) Policemen feel there is a close resemblance between their lives and what they see on TV
(C) Policemen recognize no similarity in their lives and what they see on TV
(D) Policemen love their image as projected on TV
Q157. Which of the following statements is false?
(A) A policeman requires training
(B) A policeman should know criminal law
(C) A policeman must provide evidence in the court of law
(D) A policeman does not need to know as much law as a professional lawyer
Q158. It is essential for a policeman to be trained in criminals law
