Section - A

I. Read the passage given below: 

  1. “Who doesn’t know how to cook rice? Cooking rice hardly takes time,” said my father. So, I challenged myself. I switched from news to YouTube and typed, “How to cook rice?” I took one and a half cups of rice. Since, I didn’t have access to a rice cooker, I put the rice in a big pot. Firstly, the rice has to be washed to get rid of dust and starch. I thought I won’t be able to drain the rice and that it will fall out of the pot. I observed the chef as I swirled the rice around and used my dexterous hands to drain it, not once, not twice, but three times. I looked down at the sink and saw less than 50 grains that made their way out of the pot. Suffice to say, I was up to the mark. 
  2. The video stated that the key to perfect rice is equal amounts of rice and water. I have heard that professionals don’t need to measure everything; they just know what the right amount is. But as this was my first time in the kitchen, I decided to experiment by not measuring the water needed for boiling the rice. I wanted the rice to be firm when bitten, just like pasta. I don’t enjoy the texture of mushy rice. It has to have that chutzpah; it has to resist my biting power just for a bit before disintegrating. 
  3. After what seemed like 10 minutes, all the water disappeared. I went in to give it a good stir. To my surprise, some of the rice got stuck to the pot. I tried to scrape it off but to no avail. At the same time, there was a burning smell coming from it. I quickly turned the stove off. “What have you done to the kitchen?” My mother shouted while coming towards the kitchen. I managed to ward her off. 
  4. Finally, when the time came to taste my creation, I was surprised! It wasn’t bad at all. The rice had the desired consistency. Sure, a little more salt would’ve been better, but I just added that while eating. The experience was fairly rewarding and memorable. It taught me a new sense of respect for those who cook food on a regular basis at home or are engaged in gourmet creations professionally.

Sir
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to express my concern over non-segregation of waste.
Waste segregation is the separation of wet waste and dry waste. The generation of waste is unavoidable and the materials carried in this waste impacts human and environmental health. This segregation is all the more important as dry waste can be recycled and wet waste can be composted.  When we segregate waste, there is reduction of waste that reaches landfills and occupies space. Air and water pollution rates are considerably reduced. The segregated waste makes it easier to apply different processes of Composting, Recycling and Incineration.
The RWA scan play a pivotal role in encouraging the households through a few minor changes. They need to (28) __________ to have two garbage disposal bins at home, one for dry waste and one for wet waste. Items like aluminium foils, tetra packs, glass, paper, plastics, metals, etc., fall under the dry waste category, whereas kitchen waste such as stale food, fruits and vegetables come under wet waste.
This can be done using door-to-door meetings with residents and by distributing information, education and communication material, organizing orientation programs on solid-waste management and training waste collectors on the segregation and composting of garbage. RWAs can regularly impart awareness to domestic helpers and residents in order to emphasize segregation and waste reduction at the source, so that a minimum amount of waste goes to the landfill. To conclude, segregation of waste is an important matter and must be adhered to at all levels. I hope that this letter of mine (29) __________ to bring a revolutionary change in the society. Thank you.

The yellowish light was going out. Then all efforts ceased. I relaxed. Even my legs felt limp and a blackness swept over my brain. It wiped out fear; it wiped out terror. There was no more panic. It was quiet and peaceful. Nothing to be afraid of. This is nice... to be drowsy... to go to sleep... no need to jump... too tired to jump... it’s nice to be carried gently... to float along in space.
