Read the extracts given below and answer the questions that follow.

This morning, Saheb is on his way to the milk booth. In his hand is a steel canister. ‘I now work in a tea stall down the road,’ he says, pointing in the distance.

Q. What change occurs in Saheb’s life?

Detailed Solution for Test: Lost Spring- Extract Based Type Questions- 2 - Question 1 The change that occurs in Saheb's life is that he started working at a tea stall. He was paid 800 Rupees and all his meals were also taken care of but he had lost his freedom. The steel canister seemed heavier than the plastic bag he used to carry. He had to obey the owner of the tea stall and hence he was no longer his own master like he was at the rag-picking job. Hence we can conclude that though the change had some benefits, it was not a change for the better.
