Section - A

I. Read the following passage carefully:                                                                                                [5 Marks]

  • As the family finally sets off from home after many arguments, there is a moment of lull as the car takes off. “Alright, so where are we going for dinner now?” asks the one at the driving wheel. What follows is a chaos, as multiple voices makes as many suggestions.
  • By the time, order is restored and a decision is arrived at, tempers have risen, feelings injured and there is at least one person grumbling.
  • Twenty years ago, you would step out of home, decision of meal and venue already made with no arguments or opposition and everybody looked forward to the meal with equal enthusiasm. The decision was made by the head of the family and the others fell in line. Today every member of the family has a say in every decision which also promotes a sense of togetherness and bonding.
  • We empower our kids to take their own decisions from a very early age. We ask them the cuisine they prefer, the movie they want to see, the holiday they wish to go on and the subjects they wish to study.
  • It’s a closely connected world out there, where children consult and guide each other. A parent’s well meaning advice can sound like nothing more than unnecessary preaching. How then do we reach our children through all the conflicting views and make the voice of reason be heard? Children today question choices and prefer to go with the flow.
  • What then is the best path to take? I would say the most important thing one can do is to listen. Listen to your children and their silences. Ensure that you keep some time aside for them, insist that they share their stories with you. Step into their world. It is not as complicated as it sounds; just a daily half an hour of the quality time would do the trick.

Based on your understanding of the passage, answer ANY FIVE questions from the six given below.
Q.1. What kind of chaos follows a decision, according to the passage?

According to the passage, by the time, an order is restored and a decision is arrived at, tempers rise, feelings are injured and there is at least one person grumbling.


Q.2. Why is it important for every member of the family to have a say in every decision?

It is important for every member of the family to participate in decision making as it promotes a sense of togetherness and bonding.


Q.3. What do children prefer these days?

Now-a-days, children prefer to go with the flow and they question choices.


Q.4. Pick the synonym of ‘hurt’ from paragraph 2.

Injured


Q.5. The antonym of ‘simple’ in paragraph 6 is __________.

Complicated


Q.6. What message does this passage convey?

The passage conveys that parents should give some space to children. They should listen to their children and their silences. They should let their children solve their problems by helping them from the back.

II. Read the following excerpt from a case study titled 'Sustainable Tourism'.           [5 Marks]

  • The white tiger is an offspring of Bengal tiger, which has the necessary gene for white colouring. It has beautiful black stripes on a white coat. This species of animal has blue eyes and a pink nose.
  • A pure white tiger is totally white without any stripe, which is due to the presence of double recessive allele in the genetic code. It happens only in the Bengal tiger subspecies, and only one in 10,000 births can have it naturally. White tigers are rarely seen in the wild, and only twelve of them have been spotted in India since last one-hundred years. Tigers have a life-span of 10-15 years. They are solitary animals, and are fond of hunting at night. Their diet consists of any animals that they can catch, and can eat up to 40 pounds of meat at one time. After such a big meal, they usually remain away for several days from food.
  • They are slow runners, but good swimmers. They are poor climbers and cannot climb a tree easily. They live in an area ranging from 10 to 30 square miles depending upon the availability of prey, water and shelter. Habitat loss, poaching and expansion of human population have together contributed to their becoming endangered. They are widely hunted for their bodyparts, which are used in traditional Chinese medicines.
  • Genetic inbreeding is another reason for their endangerment. Due to shortage in their number, this species of animal has been subjected to inbreeding. It has resulted in high mortality rates and severe disabilities. About 80 percent of the white tiger cubs are born with serious birthdefects related to inbreeding, and they soon die-off.
  • The critical condition of this animal has attracted the attention of conservationists worldwide. World Wildlife Federation (WWF), defenders of wildlife, and many other wildlife organisations are working with the support of the government for the cause of protecting them from becoming extinct. Once they become extinct, it will not be possible to bring them back to life.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY V/S CHILDREN
A survey was conducted by XYZ school to discuss the role played by Computers and Information Technology in the growth and development of children. Only a margin 8% of the people opined that computers enhance creativity thus showing that they were not in favour of it. As many as 10% people believed that computers cause eye strain due to long sitting hours of children in front of it where as 12% people were of the opinion that children get access to so many sites that are inappropriate for their age. In fact 30% people, believed that Information Technology increases knowledge and helps in the growth and development of a child as compared to 25% people who were of the view that computers attract a child towards itself which results in the reduction of their outdoor activities. Very few people (15%) had the opinion that it helps academically. Hence, we can sum up that 53% of the people were in favour of computer usage by children where there were still 47% who did not favour it.

Specimen answer to assist content points

  • Rajvir: Hey Pranjol! I think we should be visiting Coorg. It is a beautiful place with coffee plantations. I can smell the aroma already!
  • Pranjol: We visited a tea plantation last year, in Assam; I want to…
  • Rajvir: There is a lot more to do in Coorg than smelling the coffee! The place has rainforests, so the mega fauna will be worth watching. Not just this, Coorg provides opportunities to indulge in adventure sports like river rafting, rappelling, mountain biking, to name a few.
  • Pranjol: That sounds interesting, but I would prefer some serene moments too, away from this post-pandemic hustle-bustle.
  • Rajvir: Oh! The answer is Coorg again!
  • Pranjol: Oh, come on! You can’t be serious…
  • Rajvir: Believe me, I am. Coorg is the place. It has beautiful natural walking trails and the Brahmagiri hills offer a panoramic view. I read that the place has the largest Tibetan settlement, so the environment will reflect peace and spirituality, I’m sure.
  • Pranjol: Have to say, you’ve presented a fine case in favour of Coorg and convinced me. Let’s plan to leave for Coorg next Wednesday!
