There was a tailor who had a shop in the market. Every day, a rich man’s elephant would pass by on the road in front of his shop, led by its mahout. The tailor would offer the elephant food to eat, but one day he had nothing to give. When the elephant held out its trunk, the tailor, unable to offer anything, pricked it with a needle, causing the elephant much pain. The next day, the elephant carried foul water in its trunk and, when passing by the tailor’s shop, poured it onto the tailor’s body, as a tit-for-tat for the needle prick.

Reading Comprehension Quiz #5

Everyone knows that paper is made from trees. But when one looks at trees, one cannot imagine that something so soft and fragile as the paper is made is so hard and strong. Plant materials such as wood are made of fibers known as cellulose. It is the primary ingredient in paper making. Raw wood is first converted into pulp consisting of a mixture of Cellulose, lignin, water, and some chemicals. The pulp can be made mechanically through grinders or through chemical processes.

Short fibers are produced by mechanical grinding. The paper produced in this way is weak and is used to make newspapers, magazines, and phonebooks. Through the chemical pulping process, strong paper is produced. Cellulose pulp is sprayed to form mats on moving conveyor screens. These mats are then dried, dyed, and cut as required.

Reading Comprehension Quiz #7

Like Mahatma Gandhi, African leader Nelson Mandela battled against the oppression of the South African people by whites. He received a legal lawyer education. However, he joined the African National Congress and dedicated himself to the goal of achieving equality among all Africans—white and black—by fighting against the policy of apartheid, or the segregation of the black native Africans from all positions of power and privilege. Instead of living comfortably and in luxury as a successful lawyer, he did the opposite. Mandela was sentenced to life in jail by the reactionary South African government in 1962.

Mandela was finally released from jail on February 11, 1990, after 27 years and 9 months of imprisonment, as a result of other African National Congress leaders’ ongoing fight for freedom. Nelson Mandela became the first black African to hold the office of President of the Republic of South Africa when the African National Congress won the general election on the basis of the universal adult franchise that had been implemented by the administration of President F.D.H. Clarke.

Mandela’s greatness stems not only from his success in convincing the white South African government to abolish the hateful and inhuman apartheid, but also from his inspiring call to blacks not to seek vengeance on whites for past acts of tyranny, injustice, and exploitation.

Reading Comprehension Quiz #8

Child labor has been quite a problem down the ages. Child labor means the labor done by children below the age of eighteen. Employing little boys and girls not only saves money but also helps the employer avoid labor unrest. Young boys and girls can be paid lesser wages and they do not form unions to realize demands for higher pay.

The types of work children have to do are many and various. In tea stalls and small hotels, they clean the utensils, mop the floors and serve at the table. In garages, they wash the cars, buses, and lorries. The female children serve as maid-servants in various families. Though child labor is a cruel practice it saves many families from starvation. The income of the adult members of these families is not sufficient even for their hand-to-mouth living. If the children do not work to supplement their income, the families will have to starve. So simply banning the use of child labor could not solve the problem.

In recent times the government of India has become aware of the evils of the system. But it can be hard to do away with it all of a sudden. Abolition of the employment of child labor must be preceded by a process of improving the economic condition of the families concerned. Proper methods should be adopted so that the children are educated and not sent to workplaces that destroy both the body and the soul of these unfortunate creatures.

Long ago, a village faced famine, and hunger became a terrible problem. In the village lived a kind-hearted rich man who cared deeply for the people. Seeing their suffering, he decided to provide bread to feed them daily. Every day, children gathered outside his house, eagerly waiting for loaves of bread. But when the servants brought out the bread, chaos erupted. Kids fought and pushed to get their share, except for one little girl.

This girl stood apart from the commotion. Patiently, she waited her turn and always chose the smallest loaf, even though it meant waiting till the end. The rich man noticed her and admired her patience. He wanted to reward her. He placed some money inside the smallest loaf of bread the following day.

Reading Comprehension Quiz #11

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it plowed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
They make us cringe for metal-point on stone.
But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone…………….by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep…………………by Robert Frost

In a village lived a hardworking farmer with four sons. Sadly, the sons were lazy and constantly fought among themselves. They spent their days sleeping and arguing while their father worked hard in the fields. The father’s attempts to involve them in work fell on deaf ears. Wanting to teach them a lesson, he devised a plan.

One day, the father asked his sons to bring a bundle of sticks. They did so, and he told them to break the bundle. Try as they might, they couldn’t break the bundle of sticks. Then, the farmer instructed them to break the sticks individually. When they separated the sticks and tried breaking them one by one, they succeeded easily. The farmer then explained, “See, my sons, these sticks have a lesson for you. When you’re united, like the sticks in the bundle, you’ll be strong and nobody can harm you. You can achieve a lot together. But if you’re apart and divided, like the separate sticks, you’ll be weak and won’t achieve much.”

These words opened the sons’ eyes. They realized the importance of unity and stopped quarreling. Instead, they started working hard and working together, making their father very happy.

The Constitution of India safeguards the independence of the judiciary through various means:

Appointment of Supreme Court judges involves consultation with the President, Prime Minister, Cabinet, and other judges from the Supreme Court and High Court, ensuring participation from both the executive and judiciary. Removal of a judge is a rigorous process, requiring proven misbehavior or incapacity. The President addresses charges against the judge before both Houses of Parliament, necessitating a two-thirds majority in both Houses for removal through impeachment. A judge can serve until the age of 65 and can only be removed through the impeachment process.

The salaries and allowances of judges are drawn from the Consolidated Fund of India and cannot be diminished to their disadvantage. Judges are free to deliver their decisions without fear of public or press criticism. The Highest Court has the power to punish individuals for contempt if they refuse to abide by the court’s decisions.

Parliament cannot engage in discussions or debates regarding a judge’s conduct or their court decisions. After retirement, judges are not allowed to continue practicing law to prevent any potential influence on their former colleagues in the judiciary.

Reading Comprehension Quiz #15

An underdeveloped economy is characterized by low per capita income and a low standard of living for its people. The majority of the population lives below the poverty line. Consequently, people in this economy live in miserable conditions. In most underdeveloped economies, the population growth rate is very high as compared to other economies. Also, because of improved medical facilities, the mortality rate among all sections of society is reduced. As a result, as the population increases, the consumption of limited resources also increases, resulting in less saving of resources and a slower growth rate.

For many underdeveloped economies enriched with large and sufficient resources, most of these resources remain underutilized because of a lack of skilled personnel and technology. Underdeveloped economies suffer from widespread unemployment. Because of various reasons, such as rapid population growth and lack of investment, unemployment prevails in such an economy. Inequality in the distribution of income is prevalent in these economies. As a large part of the national income goes to smaller sections of society, the larger sections of society have to be satisfied with whatever part of income is available to them.

Human evolution has been a remarkable journey, extensively studied using various tools like excavations, carbon dating, fossil analysis, and DNA sequencing to trace evolutionary relationships.

The diversity in the human body and its features has always been vast.

Research indicates that early Homo sapiens originated in Africa. Over a hundred years ago, some of our ancestors migrated from Africa, while others remained. Thus, regardless of our current locations, all human species can be traced back to Africa. The earliest human fossils include Australopithecus, followed by Homo habilis, H. erectus, H. heidelbergensis, and eventually modern-day Homo sapiens.

Around 25-30 million years ago, hominoid stock began transitioning from tree-dwelling to ground-dwelling creatures, leading to the evolution of apes and humans.

The separation between apes and human ancestors is estimated to have started around 5 million years ago, which eventually led to the development of the Pongidae (apes) and Hominidae (humans) families.

The Harappan civilization is regarded as an advanced stage of human cultural development. Between 4000 BC and 3000 BC was a period when many civilizations were flourishing. Ancient civilizations started near river banks as rivers provided water for drinking and irrigation. The discovery and use of metals enabled man to advance to a new stage in the progress of civilization. Copper was the first metal used by humans. The period in which both stone and copper were used to make tools is called the Chalcolithic period.

Later, people began mixing copper with tin or zinc to create an alloy called bronze. Since bronze was hard, it began to be used to make agricultural implements and weapons. As a result four civilizations developed in the world. Bronze played an important role in the development of these civilizations, hence they came to be known as Bronze Age civilizations. Harappan civilization, Mesopotamian civilization, Chinese civilization, and Egyptian civilization were Bronze Age civilizations.
