Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

Rahul, a young householder, used to study the scriptures everyday under a Guru. One day the guru was explaining the following passage from the Upanishads: “No husband is loved by his wife for his own sake but it is all for the sake of the Self……….No sons are loved by their father for their sake but is all for the sake of the Self that the sons become dear to him.” At that stage, Rahul intervened and said, “Sir, in my case, both my parents and my wife love me so dearly for my own sake that if I am delayed by a few minutes in reaching home they get highly agitated and if something happens to me they will die.” The Guruji said, “You shall learn the truth of it tomorrow when you see the result of a test I am going to hold. Before going to bed tonight you must swallow this herbal powder. As a result, you will lie as if dead tomorrow morning but you will be able to hear all that is spoken in your presence. After a few hours when the effect of this medicine wears off, you will become normal and get up. You will see the fun.” Rahul did as instructed and in the morning his wife and parents found him ‘dead’–lying motionless without any pulse or heartbeat. The Guruji was apprised of the situation and he came over. They entreated him to bring Rahul back to life by using his divine powers. The Guruji asked for a jar full of water and said, “I shall draw out all the bad destiny responsible for your son’s death into his water. One of you will have to drink this water. The one who drinks will die immediately while Rahul will be restored to life. Tell me who among you is prepared to die for him ?” Both the parents refused, saying, “We are old and helping each other mutually. If one dies, the other will not have anybody to help. So our drinking the water is out of question”. Rahul’s young wife also said, “I am very young and have not seen anything of this world yet. When such old people, who have seen life in its fullness, do not want to die how can you expect me to volunteer for death?” A bright idea flashed into the mind of the father who told the Guruji, “Sir, you are a renunciate and have to relatives to mourn your death. Why don’t you drink the water yourself? We will conduct your funeral in a grand manner.”

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

Hiero, King of Syracuse, had commissioned from a goldsmith of the town a crown of pure gold, but, having taken delivery of the finished article, he was suspicious. There was reason to believe that the craftsman had mixed with the gold a certain amount of other metal of inferior value. But how to find out? There was no direct evidence, and it was therefore obviously a case for the learned men of the city. And who more learned than Archimedes ? The mathematician was therefore charged with the task which would now-a-days be considered a simple one, but was then a matter for serious thought. Nothing known to science could be brought forward to prove fraud or otherwise on the part of the goldsmith. It is more than probable that the human side of the problem interested Archimedes not at all, but the scientific puzzle worried him intensely. This worry pursed him everywhere he went for days, and persisted through the routine acts of his daily round. In the normal course of that routine, he went to the public baths. We can imagine him standing at the edge of the bath tub as he prepares to enter it, absently allowing the water to flow until he cannot help noticing it. Suddenly, he splashed out of his tub, shouting at the top of his voice: “Eureka! Eureka! (I have found it! I have found it!). Without waiting, or even thinking of such a detail as clothes, he tore out of the building and rushed through the streets of Syracuse, still shouting: Eureka! Eureka!.” Arrived at his house, the mathematician put his newly found discovery to a practical test, and found indeed that a body plunged in a fluid loses an amount of its weight which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by it. With this as a starting point-as it was to prove the starting point of many subsequent discoveries of importance–Archimedes was able to tell his king how much pure gold was in his crown. Thus was the first fundamental law in hydrostatics enunciated. Archimedes was by this time well known to his fellow townsmen, and his sometimes strange appearance and unusual actions probably met with indulgent smiles. He came from a good family; his father Pheidias was an astronomer; he was on intimate terms with, and–according to some–was even a kinsman of King Hiero himself.
