Section - A (Reading) 
A.1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. 
Sunday is the day most looked forward to by everyone. But, it is also the one day which 
suddenly evaporates before you know where you are. Everyone knows the Saturday evening 
feeling with all the pleasures of expectancy, and the Sunday evening feeling already ruined by 
the thoughts of Monday. What happens to the day? It is the day on which so many items are 
thrust – promises made to children for an outing, promise of a little shopping, calling on 
someone, and so on and so forth. There is no way out except by stretching the twenty-four hours 
to do the work of forty-eight. Before one notices it the forenoon is gone. 
 
In the morning one decides to stay a little longer in bed and one does it till one is worried out of 
bed by the noises, which start earlier than usual, because it is Sunday. A motor car with its 
engine going to pieces, children?s shouts of joy because they have no school – all this goes on 
when the Sunday devotee is planning to spend an hour longer in the bed. The man gets up in a 
slightly frustrated mood and that is not a very good way to start the day. It knocks all charm out 
of existence at the very start itself. In this mood there is no use looking for a good day. It is better 
to accept that Sunday is gone for him. 
A.1.1. On the basis of your reading of the passage, complete the following.                [8] 
 
(i) Although everyone waits for Sunday eagerly, it __________. 
(ii) Every one is happy on Saturday evenings because __________. 
(iii) Sunday evenings find people a little gloomy as __________. 
(iv) People plan many things for a Sunday. They are  
(a) __________________________________________________. 
(b) __________________________________________________. 
(c) __________________________________________________. 
(v) The person who plans to sleep for a little longer on a Sunday is not able to do so, 
as ______________. 
(vi) The Sunday devotee sometimes gets up in a frustrated mood because _______.
