Q.4 Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :
All round development of man is the true aim of education. It should train not only the
head, but also the hands and the heart. But our present system of education has miserably
failed to achieve this aim. It suffer from many grave defects. The present system of
education was founded by the British for their own convenience. Lord Macaulay was the
father and the founder of this system. He wanted it to produce clerks to help the British in
running their administration. Today the English have gone but the same old system of
education still continuous. We are free but we are still slavishly following the system
evolved by the British. This system of education has many defects. It must be changed and
The greatest defect in our present system of education is that it is too theoretical. An
educated man has only bookish knowledge. He knows nothing about practical things. He
finds that his education has not made him fit to do any useful work for his society. The
present system of education does not teach us the dignity of labour. A student is not taught
or trained to do things with his hands. Manual or physical labour finds no place in
education. Educated young men are fit only to be clerks in offices. They look down upon
manual labour. They consider it below their dignity to work with their hands in fields or
Vocational education is the need of the hour. We need more and more technicians,
engineers and doctor. But the number of vocational institution-Engineering and Medical
colleges, Polytechnics and I.T.I.s-are limited. A large number of young men and women,
who can do well as technicians, are deprived of technical or vocational knowledge.
The present system of education gives too much importance to English. At many places, it is
the medium of instruction, English may be an international language. It may have rich
treasures of science and litreture. But it can never be our national language. Education
must be imparted in the mother tongue. This will save much talent of the country from
A number of commissions have been set up since that dawn of indenpendence to plan
afresh the country’s system of education. After much thought, the 10+2+3 system was
introduced. It was designed to divert the students to different fields and vocations
according to their talent and the needs of the society. But different states have taken to it
only half-heartedly. As the things stand today, the 10+2+3 system has become a riddle. No
one knows that exactly it is.
Meanwhile, our education system is as rotten and muddy as it used to be . students find it
purposeless. Therefore, they feel restive and go on strikes. The take no interest in their
studies because they know that after finishing their education, they will only join the army
of unemployed Mass. There is an urjent need that the present system should be overhauled
and made purposeful.

Q.5 Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :
2. Effective speaking depends on effective listening. Its takes energy to concentrate on
hearing and to concentrate on understanding what has been heard. Incompetent listeners
fail in a number of ways. First, they may drift. Their attention drifts from what the speaker
is saying. Second they may counter. They find counter arguments to whatever a speaker
may be saying. Third, they compete. Then, they filter. They exclude from their
understanding those parts of the message which do not readily fit with their own frame of
reference. Finally they react. They let personal feelings about speaker or subject override
the singnificance of the message which is being sent.
What can a listener do to be more effective? The first key to effective listening is the art of
concentration. If a listener positively wishes to concentrate on receiving a message, his
chances of success are high.
It may need determination. Some speakers are difficult to follow, either because
of voice problems, or because of the form in which they send a message. There is then a
particular need for the determination of a listener to concentrate on what is being said.
Concentration is helped by alertness. Mental alertness is helped by physical alertness. It is
not simply physical fitness, but positioning of the body, the limbs and the head. Some
people also find it helpful to concentrate if they hold the head slightly to one side. One
useful way for achieving concentration is intensive note-taking, by trying to capture the
important points the speaker is referring to.
Note-taking has been recommended as an aid to the listener. Its helps the speaker too. It
gives him confidence when he sees that listener are sufficiently interested to take notes;
the patterns of eye contact with the listener can be very positive. The speaker also make
effective use of pauses.
Posture too is important. Consider the impact made by a less competent listener who
pushes his chair backward and slouches. An upright posture helps a listener’s
concentration. At the same time it is seen by the speaker to be a positive amongst his
listener. Effective listening skills have an impact on both the listener and the speaker.
