5. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :

Sometimes it is hard to believe that I’ve been up here in the hills all these years – fifty summers, and monsoons and winters and Himalayan springs (there is no real spring in the plains) — because when I look back to the time of my first coming here, it seems like yesterday.

That probably sums it all up. Time passes, and yet it doesn’t pass; people come and go, the mountains remain. Mountains are permanent things. They are stubborn, they refuse to move. You can blast holes out of them for their mineral wealth; or strip them of their trees and foliage, or dam their streams and divert their currents; or make tunnels and roads and bridges; but no matter how hard they try, humans cannot actually get rid of the mountains. That’s what I like about them; they are here to stay.

i like to think that I have become a part of this mountain, this particular range, and that by living here for so
long. I am able to claim a relationship with the trees, wild flowers, even the rocks that are an integral part of it. Yesterday, at twilight, when I passed beneath the oak leaves which formed a roof over me, I felt that I was a part of the forest. I put out my hand and touched the bark of an old tree, and as I turned away, its leaves brushed against my face, as if to acknowledge me.

(a) State whether the following statements are True or False. Write ‘T’ for True and ‘F’ for False. ( You need not write the sentences, write the numbers only) 1 x 4 = 4

(i) The oak leaves formed a roof over the author.

(ii) The author does not like the fact that mountains are permanent things.

(iii) The author means to say that he has lived through all the seasons in the mountains.

(iv) Humans cannot live without the mountains.

(b) Answer each of the following questions in about 30 words : 2 x 3 = 6

(i) What can man do to mountains ?

(ii) What does the author claim a relationship with ?

(iii) Why is it hard to believe for the author that he has lived in the hills for fifty years ?

6. (a) Write a report on a campaign on “Educate the Girl Child’ organised by your school. Mention the role of both students and teachers, purpose of this campaign, participation, response and so on. The report will be published in your school magazine. (Word limit : 150 words ) 2 + 8 = 10

OR

(b) Write a letter to the Editor of an English Daily about the unhealthy food items sold in and around your school, affecting the health of the students. ( Word limit : 150 words) 2 + 8 = 10

OR

(c) Write a letter to the headmaster / headmistress of your school requesting him / her to make more variety of books available in the library. ( Word limit : 150 words) 2 + 8 = 10

(d) Write a précis of the following passage. Add a suitable title: 2 + 8 = 10

Charlie Chaplin once said, “In this age of scientific inventions, we think too much, we feel too little.” Science boosts up the modern craze for material prosperity. It has revolutionized our lives. It has made lite more comfortable with various amenities. It is undoubtedly the driving force behind any human excellence. But it kills the soul of a man. Our skills and habits are changed by science. Excessive mechanization brings unhappiness because human faculties are slighted. A person starts believing that machines will do all for him, and this tendency becomes fatal in this high-tech world. But none can doubt that science has helped us to discover the hidden truth in nature. Can we ever imagine the modern age without computers, lasers, antibiotics, biotechnology or different electronic gadgets ? That is why it is said that science gives knowledge and power but not wisdom.
