1.   
a) Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow: 
KEEPING YOUR BRAIN YOUNG 
You probably don’t give it much thought, but you brain needs good nutrition, workout, and 
good sleep, as much as any other major muscle group. These can help boost creativity, 
memory and keep the brain young. Excess dietary fat, especially saturated fat, usually clogs 
the arteries reducing the blood flow to the brain can causing it to age prematurely. 
Conversely, the lower the saturated fat in your diet, the body will eventually flush out the 
excess fat from arteries restoring normal blood supply to the brain, for it rejuvenation. A 
healthy diet rich in colorful fruit, omega-3 fatty acids and whole grain aids improved 
functioning of the brain. Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants 
which benefit brain chemistry. Colored vegetables and fruits, walnuts, flax seeds, green tea, 
fish etc. are brain food in the real sense. Exercise seems to support the brain the same way as 
it helps cardiac health; by improving the blood flow which means more oxygen and nutrients 
reach the brain cells and sustain their optimal functioning. A good night’s sleep is immensely 
de-stressing and good for your brain. Stress hormones which get released in response to 
mental stress can have a negative impact on the brain. Putting away all your gadgets – phone, 
remote tablet etc. – and enjoying a little time relaxing during the day is a good idea. Mental 
gamers are fun, challenging and competitive – a great way to exercise your mind. When it 
comes to brain fitness, the bottom line is ‘to use it or lose it’. 
 
On the basis of your reading of the above passage, answer the following questions: 
a) When the author says ‘to use or lose it’, he means that ____________

b) Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow: 
I am onto my third month at Yale and surprisingly my experience has been as much about 
motherhood as it has been about the fellowship. As I sit down to write after an evening of 
trick-or-treating on Halloween-a first for Vihaan and me- I feel a sense of joy and fatigue. We 
went house to house, with a bag, to be admired for Vihaan’s spotted cow costume and 
rewarded with mini chocolates or a plastic spider. While he soaked in this new experience, 
we both disliked the fake spider webs enveloping porches of the houses with jiggling 
skeletons, and wondered why most children were dressed as ghosts and scary beasts. He 
already began to ask amusing questions – why are they scaring children? Why is it funny to 
look like you are dead? If chocolates are so bad, then why are they all giving us so many? 
My typical day starts at 6 am, when I reply urgent mails, get ready myself, then get Vihaan to 
speed after negotiating through excuses to laze ground, and run to catch the Yale shuttle bus 
to the day care. From there I go to my classes, attend meetings, give a talk or screen a film, do 
whatever the day throws up. And when the clock strikes 5, I pick him up and we are back 
home where I cook, clean, bathe him, tell stories and put him to bed. 
 
Answer the given questions briefly: 
a) Where did ‘we’ go with a bag? 
b) What did the narrator dislike? 
c) How does the narrator’s day start? 
d) What happens when the clock strikes 5? 
e) Give the word from the passage which means ‘soaked’? 
 
2. Theme: “India’s Tryst with Mars” 
a) Imagine you are a student-astronaut, who had participated in the Mars Mission. Write an 
article for you school magazine describing how you are trained before going on the 
mission. 
b) The Mars mission can be visualized as a serious challenge. A lot of planning is done in 
conjunction with the defined objectives. What skills will be learnt from the mission?
