SECTION A (READESG :20 marks) 
1. Read the passage given below and complete the statements that follow : 8 
One need not speak in order to communicate - signs, gestures, looks, sounds, smells and even
light can convey a message.
Animals communicate with one another in many interesting ways. These may consist of signs,
gestures, looks, sounds, smells or even light produced by the body. Song and dance are two other
means of communication.
When faced with danger, animals warn others using signals such as mock charges, grimaces or
sound. They also call their friends or inform other members of the group about the sources of
food and 'teach' the young the ways of the world. Baby birds call their parents for help and
attention and demand food.
Far from being a silent world, the ocean is a noisy place. Fishes, mollusks, sea lions, walruses and
dolphins chatter away in the water using a variety of sounds - whistles, squeaks, clicks and groans
which range from low-pitch to ultrasonic sounds that are beyond the range of human hearing.
Whales and dolphins are sometimes called the 'musicians of the sea', as birds are of the sky.
Many fishes are known to give 'distress calls' when alarmed. Some fishes, like insects, produce
sounds by rubbing together parts of their body. Some make a point by grinding their teeth and
certain kinds of molluscs do so by striking their two shells together.
The use of biological  light is one of the most remarkable forms of animal communications in the
case of deep sea fish of the dark waters and insects such as fireflies and glow-worms.
A number of animals also communicate in 'chemical language1. Pheromones are smelly
chemicals secreted by some insects to pass messages. Others pick up these messages with the
help of antennae where the sense organs are located.   Communication within a termite colony is
ensured by using chemical commands. Mammals communicate largely with facial expressions
and sounds. Chimps and gorillas, for example, have a rich variety of expressions that reflect
different moods.

2. Read the passage given below carefully: 12 
(1) In the 21st century we all are aware of the development of science and technology and of the
progress made by mankind. Science has always given us a lot and one of the gifts of science 
is mass-media which includes television, radio etc. Television is having a great impact on our 
minds and as a result we learn word to word utterances of the persons acting before us. This 
is true whether they are in serials or in advertisements.

2. Read the passage given below carefully: 12 
(1) In the 21st century we all are aware of the development of science and technology and of the
progress made by mankind. Science has always given us a lot and one of the gifts of science 
is mass-media which includes television, radio etc. Television is having a great impact on our 
minds and as a result we learn word to word utterances of the persons acting before us. This 
is true whether they are in serials or in advertisements. 
(2) Nowadays, we find that children pay more attention towards television than to study or 
game. Today, advertisement has become a media for making a product popular in a short 
period of time and this is the only reason for the impact of new products in the mind of 
children. 
(3) Previously, whenever any movie was about to be released there was a newsbreak in 
between but now there are several breaks for the advertisement. Today, if any 
advertisement is shown, then even before the actor or actress speaks, the child starts 
pronouncing the lines of the advertisement much before it is advertised. 
(4) Thus we can see that children know all the names of the performers, colour of their dresses 
and the product they advertise. Yesterday, while I was passing across the street, I heard a 
boy telling his friends that a new advertisement was released and the person who was 
advertising it was Sachin Tendulkar. I looked at that boy and found that he was not even 
seven years and I was surprised that his memory was so sharp to remember the television 
programmes. but I doubt if it was the same in regard to his studies. 
(5) I found this out not only in that boy but in all the young children of today. Besides, seven 
year old children, even much younger children are attracted towards television. For 
example, one of my teachers was saying that her brother's daughter is so keen for watching 
television that if television is switched off, then she starts crying. You will be surprised to 
know that she is only seven months old. 
(6) Today the children have developed too expensive tastes. They always ask their parents for 
new products. However, I don't mean that advertisements should be totally banned, but 
their impact should be minimised. 
(1)  Answer the following questions briefly :  (2x4) 
(a) How is Mass-media having a great impact on our minds? 
(b) How can a product be made popular in a short period of time? 
(c) How can we say that the students are attracted towards the advertisements? 
(d) Why have our children developed expensive tastes? 
(2)  Answer the following questions :  (1x4) 
(a) Which word in the Para 1 means the same as 'speech'? 
fb) Find a word in Para 3 which means the same as 'announce'.
