Section A 
Q. 1 Read the passage given below and complete the statements that follow: 
Cancer has emerged as the second-leading cause of death globally after cardiovascular 
diseases. Proportion of deaths due to cancer around the would increased from 12% in 
1990 to 15% in 2013 while the number of new cases almost doubled in India during the 
period. 
In India, deaths from the disease have increased by 60%, according to the latest report 
‘Global Burden of Cancer-2013’, released worldwide on Friday. 
“Even if we adjust for the rise in population in India over this period, the new cancer 
cases have increased by 30% per unit population and deaths have risen by 10%, “says 
Lalit Dodona, co-author of the study and professor at the public health foundation of 
India and Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. 
In 2013, there were 14.9 million new cancer registered globally, whereas 8.2 million 
people died due to the disease. The report is based on a global study of 28 cancer groups 
in 188 countries by a consortium of international researchers from University of 
Washington an Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation. 
The report suggests that new cases of virtually all types of cancer are rising in countries 
globally –regardless of income-but the death rates from cancer are falling in many 
countries primarily due to its prevention and treatment. However, it says there is a 
threat of increasing incidence in developing countries due to ill-equipped health 
systems. 
While incidence of breast cancer is highest in India as well as globally, most number of 
cancer deaths in India are caused due to stomach cancer, which is globally the second 
most common reason for death. 
(a)Cancer is next only to _________ Diseases resulting in deaths, worldwide.

Q. 2 Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow: 
The dormant ngorongoro volcano and the wilderness that surrounds it are full of 
surprises. It is a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site Iocated in the 
Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. This is where I had one of my most dangerous 
encounters. Ngorongoro Crater, a dormant volcano, is as one of the Seven Natural 
Wonders of Africa. 
The Ngorongoro crater is home to the world’s most ferocious lions. These magnificent, 
black-mined lions are distinguished by their large size and thick black mane around the 
face. There are over 130 lions in this small area-the highest density of predators found 
anywhere in the world. They make their presence felt; thunderous roars reverberate 
through the crater every now and then. 
That morning, we were trying to film a newborn elephant. Zobee, my jeep driver and 
friend of many years, is an expert tracker. He had seen the mother elephant in the last 
stages of labor. We found her near a champ of acacia trees surrounded by thick Savanna 
grass. 
A ware of the power of a protective mother elephant, we stopped a safe distance away. 
She was tending to the newborn, who was struggling to stand up. The cow went down 
on her knees and gently used her tusks and trunk to support the calf. 
Suddenly, a group of impalas shot out of the thick grass. One female was bleeding 
heavily. Our forest guard looked through his binoculars. 
We could hear little bleats. It was probably a baby impala, dropped by its frightened 
mother while running from the leopard. The herd had disappeared there was no chance 
of the mother returning and the abandoned newborn had no chance of survival. 
(a) Where did the writer’s adventurous encounter take place? 
(b) How are black-mined lions different from others? 
(c) Why couldn’t the baby impala survive? 
(d) Why did the writer and his driver stop a safe distance away from the mother
