Section – A (Reading) [25 MARKS]
1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow each : (10 marks)
It was in Germany and France that the first successful attempts were made to produce an internal-
combustion engine driven by petrol. In England, people were strangely timid about horseless vehicles.
English inventors were handicapped by a quaint old law that forbade any such vehicle to attain a
greater speed than four miles an hour, and compelled each one to be preceded by a man carrying a red
flag. This law was not repealed until 1896.
The earliest motor cars were looked upon as mere jokes, or as rather dangerous playthings, by
everyone except their inventors. Some of them were single-seaters, others would carry two or even
three people; but all were noisy, clumsy, queer looking things. When in 1888, Carl Benz, a German,
produced a three-wheeled, internal-combustion car, a great forward stride had been made. Another
German, whose name, Daimler, is often seen on motor cars to this day, was experimenting about the
same time, and testing a petrol-driven engine.
It is easy to understand how the introduction of the petrol-driven engine revolutionized road transport
throughout the world. Until then the necessary power to push a vehicle along could not be obtained
without the cumbersome tanks, boilers and furnaces of the steam engine. The internal-combustion
engine is light in weight and small in size by comparison; the fuel is burned in it, so that there is no
waste, like the dusty cinders of a coal fire.
(i) How did most people regard early motor cars? (2 marks)

(ii) What were all early motor cars? (2 marks)
(A) A plaything or toy (B) A vehicle better than horse-driven vehicle

(iii) What made the English inventors handicapped? (2 marks)
(A) The general public did not welcome the invention
(B) The quaint old law that forbade any such vehicle to attain a greater speed than four miles/hour
(C) Non-availability of adequate fuel to power the engine
(D) None of these
(iv) What does 'repealed' mean? (2 marks)
(A) repeated (B) abolished (C) contradicted (D) enforced
(v) Which among the following words is as closely opposite to 'clumsy'? (2 marks)
(A) unhandy (B) refined (C) unusually large (D) unusual

2. Read the following poem carefully and answer the questions that follow each: (15 Marks)

Dear Lord in the battle that goes on through life
I ask but a field that is fair
A chance that is equal with all in the strife
A courage to strive and to dare
And if should win, let it by the code
With my faith and my honor held high.
And if I should lose, let me stand by the road
And cheer as the winner go by
And Lord may my shouts be ungrudging and clear
Let me not cherish a snare or a snarl
Or play any sniveling per
Let me say, There they ride, on whom laurels bestowed
Since they played the game better than I
Let me stand with a smile by the side of the road
And cheer as the winner goes by.
So grant me to conquer, if conquer I can
By proving my worth in the fray
But teach me to lose like a regular man
And not like a craven I pray
Let me take of my hat to the warriors who strode
To the victory splendid and high
Yea, teach me to stand by the side of the road
And cheer as the winners go by
