1. Read the passage and answer- [10 Marks]
About 400 years ago, the Greeks began to move across from their home in the mountains of Asia
towards the Western Mediterranean Sea. At this time they were wandering shepherds, living in groups
of families called tribes. They had no real government such a thing was unnecessary because there
was no public business, there were no taxes, and nobody owned any land , since the tribe moved from
place to place the whole time looking for grass for its sheep and goats. There were also no law cases
and no lawyers, and men were controlled by a few customs, such as the one that said that if one man
killed another, one of the dead man’s relations had to find and kill the killer.
(i) How did the Greeks live 400 years ago ? Where did they begin to migrate to ? [3 Marks]
(ii) Why did they not have any government? [1 Marks]
(iii) Why did the tribes move from place to place? [1 Marks]
(iv) What did the Greeks have in place of laws? [1 Marks]

[2 Marks]
(vii) Pick out from the passage the word which is opposite of ‘alive’. [1 Marks]
2. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow : [10 marks]
I heard this story from my teacher. In this story there are two persons, quite healthy and not advanced
much in age, had been lying under the shade of a tree. At dawn, one of them marked a horse-man
passing by. He called out the horse-man and requested him to put the fruit into his mouth, which had
been lying on his chest. He replied of course with a pinch of anger, "You seem to be very idle". It is
strange to know that you cannot lift the thing lying so close. The other person got the moment to expose
himself and told the horse-man, "Yes sir, he is criminally idle". He did not care to scare away the dog
that licked my cheeks for the whole night. The horse-man obliged the person number one by putting the
fruit into his mouth and sped away.
They have lost the will to move limbs. They are just like dead bodies or are immovable piece of wood or
stone. Cooper has rightly remarked that idleness is the grave in which a living person buries himself
without the help of any outside agency. No movement, no life, is the simple formula to make sure
whether the thing before you is a living entity or not. A person who knows only to sleep and eat, that
too, with the help of some other person,is worse than animal, makes efforts to manage its food.
Idleness is the most dangerous enemy of man. Even the lion, the uncrowned king of the jungle has to
go about in search of his prey, because no animal would come to enter his mouth. In a nutshell it may
be said that every living thing acts. Where there is no action there is no life.
(i) According to the passage what is the most dangerous enemy of man.
(A) action (B) idleness (C) stupidity (D) calmness
(ii) What is the central idea of the passage ?
(A) We should embrace idleness (B) We should never try to be active
(C) We should not think anything (D) We should shake off idleness
(iii) What does Cooper want to say about idleness ?
(A) Idleness is an orchard (B) Idleness is a river
(C) Idleness is a rock (D) Idleness is a grave
(iv) What is the criterion to judge a thing lying before us is living or dead ?
(A) movement (B) constant (C) stupidity (D) attraction
