Directions for Qs 181-185
Read the following passage and answer the questions below
Human being is a singular creature. He has a set of gifts which make him unique among the animals: so that, unlike them, he is not figure in the landscape – he is a shaper of the landscape. In body and in mind he is the explorer of nature, the ubiquitous animal, who did not find but has made his home in every continent.
It is reported that when the Spaniards arrived overland at the Pacific Ocean in 1769 the California Indians used to say that all full moon the fish came and danced on these batches. And it is true that there is a local variety of fish, the grunion that comes up out of the water and lays its eggs above the normal high-tide mark. The females bury themselves tail first in the sand and the males gyrate round them and fertilize the eggs as they are being laid. The full moon is important, because it gives the time needed for the eggs to incubate undisturbed in the sand, nine or ten days, between these very high tides and the next ones that will wash the hatched fish out to seed again.
So millions of years of evolution have shaped the grunion to fit and sit exactly with the tides. But nature – that is, biological evolution – has not fitted man to any specific environment. On the contrary, by comparison with the grunion he has a rather crude survival kit; and yet- this is the paradox of the human condition – one that fits him to all environments. Among the multitude of animals which scamper, fly, burrow, and swim around us, human being is the only one who is not locked into his environment. His imagination, his reason, his emotional subtlety and toughness, make it possible for him not to accept the environment but to change it. And that series of inventions, by which man from age to age has remade his environment, is a different kind of evolution – not biological, but cultural evolution. I call that brilliant sequence of cultural peaks the ascent of Man.
Of course, it is tempting to a scientist – to hope that the most original achievement of the mind are also the most recent. And we do indeed have cause to be proud of some modern work. Think of the unraveling of the code of heredity in the DNA spiral; or the work going forward on the special faculties of the human brain. Think of the philosophic insight that saw into the theory of relativity or the minute behavior of matter on the atomic scale.
Yet to admire only our own successes, as if they had no past (and were of the future)Would make a caricature of knowledge. For human achievement, and science in particular, is not a museum of finished constructions. It is a progress, in which the first experiments of the alchemists also have a formative place, and the sophisticated arithmetic that the Mayan astronomers of Central America invented for themselves independently of the Old World. The stone work of Machu Picchu in the Andes and the geometry of the Alhambra in Moorish Spain seem to us, five centuries later, exquisite works of decorative art. But if we stop our appreciation there, we miss the originality of the two cultures that made them. Within their time, they are constructions as arresting and important for their peoples as the architectures of DNA for us.
181. The writer’s view that man did not find but his made his home means that
other animals has no choice but to live wherever they got protection.
man’s dominance of nature was so complete that he could decide where to build his home.
man has learnt to co-exist with other animals.
all of the above
182. The writer cites the example of the grunion’s reproduction method to stress that
the natural law of reproduction of species is at work everywhere.
evolution helps every species adapt itself to fit into its environment.
the law of survival of the fittest operates even at the lowest level.
evolution took the first steps on the beaches of the world.
183. According to the author, the paradox of man’s condition is that
his crude survival kit has not helped man to fit into some kind of environment.
with his crude survival kit, man has developed capacity to fit into all type of environment.
Man cannot scamper, fly or burrow, yet he has locked himself into his Environment.
all of the above.
184. Why do we hope that the most original achievement of the mind are also the most recent ?
We are too prejudiced to admit the past achievement of our forefathers.
We believe that the earlier inventions were too primitive to be of any use to be of any use to us.
We do not realize that progress is a matter of continuity, so we view every past achievement in isolation from our own.
We regard progress as mere change.
185. Man does not accept the environment but becomes the shaper of the landscape of:
his love for exploration
his ability to plan, imagine, and put different talents together.
the genetic change that he introduced in his own species.
all of the above

Passage – 2
Reading a story-book is, for a child as for an adult, a way of discussing what might happen; to ask what if, in the open dialogue of speech, or the concealed dialogue of imagination. Reading and writing create a mental space for thinking, the space that children inhabit early in their play. From studies of now children’s language develops we learn that individuals boys and girl follow different patterns in speech and in thought as they learn to make sense of the world and to reflect on their lives. There is no straight line to abstract thinking. Language and thinkings meet and change each other at the bumpy intersections of events. There are, however, schooled ways of regulating thinking, conventions for writing about sciences or poetry, for example, that children have to learn. By learning to write and read like a poet or a scientist, pupils in school learn the conventions of poetry and the discourse of the sciences, which control what counts as thinking in these roles. They join the group of those whose literacy they learn, so their thinking becomes a social as well as an individual intellectual activity. Young thinkers look for apprenticeships with those whose words and thoughts interest them. The same holds for footballers as well as photographers, actresses as well as accountants.
97. The disciplined ways of regulating thinking in a child are
familiarity with elementary terms in science and rhyming.
learning to follow the rules of the games when the child is at play.
learning conventions for writing about science or poetry
developing good handwriting by copy book writing.
98.As children develop ability to regulate their thinking,
they begin to imitate the ways of their parents,
they join other groups and learn their ways of thinking and talking.
they make their thinking a social and individuals intellectual activity
[2] and [3] only.
99.Young thinkers develop into budding footballers and actresses by
opting for pre-professional courses at school.
joining training instititues for these roles.
constant exposure to the achievement of their masters in visual media.
serving apprenticeship with those having the same aptitude for the activity.
100.When we read a story for a child,
we create word-picture that stimulate the child’s imagination.
we create that ‘what-if’ possibility in the story context to stir up the child’s imagination.
we teach the child to relate its won experience to the world outside.
all of the above .
101.The mental space for thinking that children develop through reading and writing
supplements their mechanical skills
is created when are at play in the early stages.
is discourages by parents by insistence on formal learning process
helps them to develop creatively in painting, music, etc.
Passage – 3
Captive breeding is a method of breeding in Zoos or reserves, those species of animals, plants, birds, and fish that are close to destruction. The breeding programmes take a great deal of care, particularly during the transition back to the wild, and there have been some notable successes,the red Wolf, the black-footed ferret, the rhinoceros, the California condor, the golden lion tamarind monkey which is a distinct species of monkey, and the bearded vultures of the Alps. Great care is taken, while the animals are in bondage, to keep them as separate as possible in surroundings that resemble as much as possible the original habitats. Efforts are made to ensure that they do not become too accepting of humans. In California, at the Animal Planet Research Centre, elaborate steps are taken to ensure that the chicks of the bald eagle, which is bred in bondage, do not “stamp” humans as parents, which would mean they could not be able to survive alone in the world. The chicks are fed via a glove puppet with an eagle head. Programmes to prepare animals for their relaease include public meetings to reassure local human population and training for the animals in how to go about hunting live prey in readiness for the wild. Once released, the animals are kept in reserves and a strict monitoring programmes is maintained, using radio collars in some cases so that deviating animals can be returned to the reserves or taken back into bondage if they are though to be in danger.
102.Breeding animals in bondage must ensure that they do not become too trusting of humans because
After being taken to the reserve, they must be able to forage for food on their own.
When released in the wild, they must be able to survive, trusting their own instincts.
in their natural habitat later they must be able to protect themselves from enemies.
all of the above.
103. In order that the chicks of the bald eagle in bondage do not “stamp” humans as parents,
they are fed through a glove puppet with an eagle head.
they are given live prey to feed on.
pre-recorded sound from the eagle head simulates it scream.
none of the above.
104. Once released in the wild,
Some animals are made to carry radio collars.
a strict watch is kept on the animal’ reflexes.
Animals are kept in reserves with strict monitoring programmes.
[1] and [3] only.
105.Programmes to prepare captive animals for release in the wild, include all of the following except.
Training the animal in how to go about hunting live prey.
Public meetings to inform the local human population.
Helping animals to sharpen their natural instincts through Pavlovian approach.
[1] and [2] only.
106.Notable successes in captive breeding include all of the following, except
the black-footed ferret.
the californian condor.
The cottontail rabbit.
The golden lion tamarind monkey.
107.To which of the following disciplines does the passage correctly relate ?

Passage – 4
Gailleo’s pioneering achievements look small besides the enormous accomplishments of the succeeding generation of physicists – primarily, of course, those of Sir Isaac Newton. His mathematical tools, improved as they were over those of medieval scientists, were still rudimentary and awkward. He had neither analytic geometry nor calculus to assist him in the description of his ideas and discoveries. Despite the incalculable help of the telescope in observation of the heavens, he lacked date to support his theories. Many of the experiments he described were performed only in his mind in order to illustrate theories, which had been formed without them. But none of this detracts from Galileo’s supreme position as a scientific revolutionary; his conception of the mathematical expression of physical facts and the abstract nature of physical laws makes his work a watershed in Western history. Galileo did not supply conclusive answers to physical questions – his experimentation and mathematics were too faulty – but like Copernicus, he raised questions of tremendous significance.
108.State which of the following statements is false in terms of Galileo’s contributions to science.
He foreshadows Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
He was a scientific revolutionary who laid the foundation of modern science.
He developed the conception of explaning physics facts in mathematical terms.
The question he raised helped latter day scientists.
109.With his discovery of telescope, Galileo could have achieved more than the later age scientists, but for the fact that.
He had to arrive at his theories without performing experiments.
He lacked the data to support these theories.
He had to reckon with the Church, which opposed his theories.

110.State which of the following statements is true.
Galileo and Newton were contemporaries.
Galileo’s mathematics and experimentation were not good enough to let him give definite answers to physical questions.
Newton discovered the telescope.

111.The generation of scientists who succeeded Galileo had better mathematical tools in
quantum analysis calculus analytical geometry [2] and [3] only
112.According to the writer, Newton’s achievement look bigger than Galileo’s for the following reasons except
Newton’s discoveries had the advantage of using Calculus and analytic geometry.
Newton had the advantage of using Galileo’s pioneering work as basis for his own discoveries.
Newton postulated the laws of motion, which Galileo did not.
Newton could perform experiments for his theories, unlike Galileo.
