SECTION II: Textual Passages – 20 marks
Q.2. (A) Read the following passage and complete the activities. (10 Marks)
A1. : State whether the following statements are true or false. (2)
(i) Parents of young seagull guided his brothers and sisters in the art of flying (ii)The whole family kept taunting young seagull for his cowardice.
(iii) The young seagull mustered up courage to take that plunge.
(iv)The young seagull was with his mother on his ledge.
The young seagull was alone on his ledge. His two brothers and his sister had
already flown away the day before. He had been afraid to fly with them. Somehow when he had taken a little run forward to the brink of the ledge and attempted to flap his wings he became afraid. The great expanse of sea stretched down beneath, and it was such a long way down – miles down. He felt certain that his wings would never support him; so he bent his head and ran away back to the little hole under the ledge where he slept at night. Even when each of his brothers and his little sister, whose wings were far shorter than his own, ran to the brink, flapped their wings, and flew away, he failed to muster up courage to take that plunge which appeared to hi so desperate. His father and mother had come around calling to him shrilly, upbraiding him, threatening to let him starve on his ledge unless he flew away. But for the life of him he could not move.
That was twenty-four hours ago. Since then nobody had come near him. The day before, all day long, he had watched his parents flying about with his brothers and sister, perfecting them in the art of flight, teaching them how to skim the waves and how to dive for fish. He had, in fact, seen his older brother catch his first herring and devour it, standing on a rock, while his parents circled around raising a proud cackle. And all the morning the whole family had walked about on the big plateau midway down the opposite cliff taunting him for his cowardice.
A2. Describe the attempts made by the seagull to fly.
A3. Match the Pairs.
i) Upbraiding a) a high steep face of a rock
ii) Devour b) utter a shrill cry
iii) cliff c) scolding

A1) Write whether you ‘Agree’ or ‘Disagree’ with the statements: (2)
i) To accomplish goals, experts recommend a ten step approach. ii) The champions have to have the skill and the will. iii) For anyone, setting goal is not easy but challenging. iv) If we do not take actions to achieve goals, we shall not achieve them.
Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. Successful professionals thrive in the same manner. We all have natural talents. If we use that talent to set our goal in life, we can easily get success in life. We shall not achieve our goals if we do not take action to achieve them.
Setting goals has two valuable assets – a sense of originality and a stepping stone to illuminate the path. Goals put one at the helm of life; pursuing them acknowledges a better future situation. They help to steer a course of life rather than simply drifting along and letting things happen.
Setting goals may appear easy, but, for some, it is quite challenging. Fear of failure may be avoided in the absence of any goals. After all, one has to decide what one wants to achieve in the end. To accomplish goals, experts recommend a five step approach.
A2) Complete the following web: 02
Write the adjectives of the following:
i) success -_____________ 2) nature -_____________
They have to have the skill and the will. ( Use ‘not only—but also’)
We shall not achieve our goals. ( Choose correct ‘Q-tag)
a) shall we ? b) shan’t we ? c) do we ?
A5) Write your any one goal and what do you do to achieve it ?

(ii) The age of beggar’s granddaughter –
(iii) The writer’s role model –
(iv) The things that the writer used to give to beggar everyday –
‘Then what’s the secret of your energy?’ I asked, like Tendulkar does in the advertisement.
She smiled, ‘A beggar changed my life.’
I was absolutely dumbfounded and she could see it.
‘Yes, a beggar,’ she repeated, as if to reassure me. ‘He was old and used to stay in front of my house with his five-year-old granddaughter. As you know, I was a chronic pessimist. I used to give my leftovers to this beggar every day. I never spoke to him. Nor did he speak to me. One monsoon day, I looked out of my bedroom window and started cursing the rain. I don’t know why I did that because I wasn’t even getting wet. That day I couldn’t give the beggar and his granddaughter their daily quota of leftovers. They went hungry, I am sure.
‘However, what I saw from my window surprised me. The beggar and the young girl were playing on the road because there was no traffic. They were laughing, clapping and screaming joyously, as if they were in paradise. Hunger and rain did not matter.
They were totally drenched and totally happy. I envied their zest for life.’
‘That scene forced me to look at my own life. I realized I had so many comforts, none of which they had. But they had the most important of all assets, one which I lacked. They knew how to be happy with life as it was. I felt ashamed of myself. I even started to make a list of what I had and what I did not have. I found I had more to be grateful for than most people could imagine.
That day, I decided to change my attitude towards life, using the beggar as my role model.’

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

In form and feature, face and limb,
I grew so like my brother,
That folks got taking me for him, And each for one another.
It puzzled all our kith and kin, It reached a fearful pitch;
For one of us was born a twin, Yet not a soul knew which.
One day, to make the matter worse, Before our names were fixed,
As we were being washed by nurse, We got completely mixed;
And thus, you see, by fate’s decree, Or rather nurse’s whim,
My brother John got christened me, And I got christened him.
This fatal likeness even dogged
My footsteps, when at school,
And I was always getting flogged, For John turned out a fool.
I put this question, fruitlessly,
To everyone I knew,
‘What would you do, if you were me, To prove that you were you?’
Our close resemblance turned the tide
Of my domestic life,
For somehow, my intended bride Became my brother’s wife.
In fact, year after year the same
Absurd mistakes went on,
And when I died, the neighbours came And buried brother John.

A1. Complete the following sentences.

A sparrow is a small bird which is found throughout the world. There are many different
species of sparrows. Sparrows are only about four to six inches in length. Many people
appreciate their beautiful song. Sparrows prefer to build their nests in low places-usually on the
ground clumps of grass low trees and low bushes. In cities they build their nests in building
nooks or holes. They rarely build their nests in high places. They build their nests out of twigs
grasses and plant fibres. Their nests are usually small and well-built structures.
Female sparrows lay four to six eggs at a time. The eggs are white with reddish brown
spots. They hatch within eleven to fourteen days. Both the male and female parents care for the
young. Insects are fed to the young after hatching. The large feet of the sparrows are used for
scratching seeds. Adult sparrows mainly eat seeds. Sparrows can be found almost everywhere
where there are humans. Many people throughout the world enjoy these delightful birds.
The sparrows are some of the few birds that engage in dust bathing. Sparrows will first
scratch a hole in the ground with their feet then lie in it and fling dirt or sand over their bodies
with flicks of their wings. They will also bathe in water or in dry or melting snow. Water bathing
is similar to dust bathing with the sparrow standing in shallow water and flicking water over its
back with its wings also ducking its head under the water. Both activities are social with upto a
hundred birds participating at once and are followed by preening and sometimes group singing.

King Krishnadeva Raya would perform heavy exercises every morning. He regularly applied oil on his body and thereafter worked out till all the oil came out with the sweat. This was followed by a long ride on his horse. Once the king started leading a sedentary lifestyle, and he stopped exercising. He no longer went horse-riding either. The king overate and as a result grew fat and heavy. The king‟s temperament also underwent a sea change.
Noticing this, the royal physicians cautioned the king against the ill-effects of overeating and explained to him the risks posed by obesity. They advised the king to regulate his diet, exercise and take care of his health. The repeated advice he got from the physicians to eat less made him so angry that one day he announced a reward for anyone who could find him an easy cure. But there was one condition: those who failed would have their heads off. None dared to advise the king in this regard. The situation became precarious and as usual Tenali Raman was approached by the courtiers for a remedy. Tenali heard the problem and assured the courtiers of a viable solution. The next day, an astrologer predicted that the king had only a month left to live. When the king came to know of this, he was furious. The astrologer was ordered by the king to be imprisoned for a month, so that his prediction could be put to test and so the hapless forecaster was sent to prison.

While preparing to plant trees in a residential colony, highways or anywhere, one should consider three factors taking decision. What kind of (species) trees, where to plant and what kind of soil. He should consider the qualities of a tree such as pattern of branching and its height. If it is a school, you need shade-giving trees of moderate height so that children can play under them and not be hurt when they climb on to them.
In residential colonies, trees with thick branches, like eucalyptus or Ashoka should be chosen to control pollution and trap dust. Similarly, the nature of the soil too should be considered. If you are planting trees by the road side, it withstands the topical monsoon and provides shade in summer.
On highways the well-known choice would be the native trees tamarind or peepal. Being hardly, they do not need much care. Birds and animals interact more easily with native trees than the exotics. Villagers too consider such native trees to be sacred as the abode of gods.
