Directions for Questions from 41 to 46: Read the passages given below and answer the questions that follow them. Passage - 1 400M people speak English as their first language; another 1.4 billion as a second tongue. Born 1,600 years ago among the Germanic tribes of northern Europe, English became global as a result of trade, conquest, migration, the media and the rise of the economic power of America. A new exhibition at the British Library just down the road from two of Londons main immigrant entry points, Kings Cross and Euston railway stations, traces for the first time the incredible journey launched by the Frisians, Saxons, Angles and Jutes who sailed to south-east England and whose descendants created the Vespasian Psalter in the eighth century. Alongside an image of King David playing the harp are the words, Dominus inluminatio mea and underneath Dryhten inlihtnis mine (The Lord is my light). Difficult to understand for todays English speaker, the roots of the language are nonetheless discernibly there. From the Vespasian Psalter the journey moves on through Englands early literary heroes, Beowulf, Sir Gawayne and the Grene Knight, and on to Jonathan Swift, who wrote that the English Language, as it is spoken by the politest part of the nation, and as it stands in the writings of our most approved authors, often offends against every part of Grammar. Henry Alford was among the earliest grammar policemen to write a Plea for the Queens Style Guide as was Robert Lowth, bishop of London and professor of poetry at Oxford University, whose anonymous grammar was reprinted 45 times between 1762 and 1800. Lowth had a lifelong fascination for the preposition, but could never make up his mind whether it was indeed a sin of taste to end a sentence with one. Others who came later were made of sterner stuff, prompting the famous comment perhaps apocryphally attributed to Winston Churchill: this was regulated English up with which we will not put. The curators of Evolving English have been clever to focus not just on English at school and English at work, but English at play. From spoonerisms to malapropisms, puns and palindromes and the 1,800 words invented by William Shakespeareamong them "green-eyed", "go-between", "well-read" and "zany". Strange then that the exhibition fails to explore the one thing that, above all, gives English its witty flexibility, its gift for pun and double meaning, and that is the absence of accents and grammatical gender. No masculine, feminine, neuter, acute, grave or cedilla for your free-spirited Anglophone. Not only was Shakespeare the greatest English writer, he could have been no other kind. 41. Which of the following has been referred to in passage, in context to the English language? 1. The influence of Shakespeare on the development of English language 2. The cultural influence that English language has experienced in the due course of its development 3. The flexibility, with which English language can be used to create double meanings 4. All of the above

Passage 2 I met an oriental man in an authentic-looking dark costume, with a Fu Manchu mustache, dark orange skin, a black oriental skullcap, who I knew brought with him certain essences of oriental wisdom. I wanted to ask him questions, to get answers, but I didnt know what to ask. I asked him why oriental wisdom stressed passivity and passive reaction. And he didnt exactly answer. Then somehow I found myself doing a task, as if he directed me to do it, as if he was my master guide, sort of like the oriental teacher from the old television show, Kung Fu. The task was not very physical, I could do it sitting down somewhere; but it was a frustrating task and made me tense and somewhat hostile to my teacher. But then I realized I was approaching a sort of recognition about how trust and frustration and discouragement relate and about how you arrive at a moment of tension and hostility where you dont know how to do something, or you dont want to do it anymore. I realized that there is a certain kind of understanding to be learned from this type of experience of being suspicious but going on anyway. But I sensed that for me there is a central link, not related to logic, between that experience of being at the edge of your patience, feeling frustrated and yet involved in the experience. It is also important to me that I met such a distinctly and thoroughly traditional oriental, even an historic stereotype oriental. This tells me something about my respect for oriental wisdom and gives me some issues I might think more about in my life these days. Nearly everyone agrees that it takes imagination for a person to produce the liveliest and effective writing possible. English teachers can certainly be counted among those in academia who have long paid at least lip service to the value of the imagination. But it is only recently as more and more fields of study have focused on the imagination and its importance to us that we seem to have become actively concerned with teaching the imagination. As a profession we are novices at organizing and describing the ingredients of pedagogy of the imagination, although some English teachers have no doubt had great individual successes in working with the creative possibilities of the mind. In this essay I claim no such history of personal success, however. I simply wish to report on an experiment I have engaged in during the last year or so to attempt to teach my students to use their imaginations more effectively. The above vision of the oriental man was the mental experience I had the first time. I tried to lead my students in probing their imagination in a writing class.

The primary purpose of the author of the passage is: 1. To highlight the importance of creative thinking and show how oriental thinking is required for creative writing. 2.

To highlight the shortcomings of the existing English teachers and show how they can undergo self improvement. 4. To show the need for creative thinking in writing as well as teaching English and how one should probe ones imagination. The tone adopted by the author of the passage can be said to be: 1. Predatory 2. Effusive 3. Probing 4. Expounding The authors experience with the oriental man served which out of the following purposes: I. He found that such exercises really served no tangible utility, one that could be clearly labeled and named. II. He became aware of his respect for oriental wisdom. III. He developed a certain understanding of experience wherein one is suspicious but still goes on with the task at hand. 1. II only 2. I and II 3. II and III 4. I and III.
