Part IV: Language I English

Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow (Q. 91–99) by selecting the most appropriate option.
The fossil remains of the first flying vertebrates, the pterosaurs, have intrigued paleontologists for more than two centuries.
How such large creatures, which had wing spans from 8 to 12 metres, solved the problems of powered flight, and exactly what these creatures were – reptiles or birds – are among the questions scientists have puzzled over.
Perhaps the least controversial assertion about the pterosaurs is that they were reptiles. Their skulls, pelvises and hind feet were reptilian. The anatomy of their wings suggests that they did not evolve into the class of birds. In pterosaurs, a greatly elongated fourth finger of each forelimb supported a wing-like membrane. In birds, the second finger is the principal strut of the wing. If the pterosaur walked or remained stationary, the fourth finger and with it the wing could only turn upward in an extended inverted V-shape alongside of the animal’s body. Both the pterosaurs and the birds have hollow bones, a feature that represents a saving in weight. In birds, however, these bones are reinforced more massively by internal struts.
Although scales typically cover reptiles, pterosaurs probably had hairy coats. The recent discovery of a pterosaur specimen, covered in long, dense and relatively thick hair-like fossil material, was the first clear evidence that this reasoning was correct. Efforts to explain, how the pterosaurs became airborne have led to suggestions that they launched themselves by jumping from cliffs, by dropping from trees, or even by rising into light winds from the crests of waves.
Q91. The skeleton of a pterosaur can be distinguished from a bird’s by the
(a) size of its wing span.
(b) presence of hollow bones.

Ans: (a)
Q92. Which is the characteristic of pterosaurs?
(a) They hung upside down like bats before flight.
(b) They flew to capture prey.
(c) They were unable to fold their wing fully at rest.
(d) They lived mostly in the forest.
Ans: (c)
Q93. The elongated finger in the ______ supported the outstretched wings.
(a) pterosaurs
(b) birds
(c) both
(d) neither
Ans: (a)
Q94. The body of the pterosaurs was covered in

(d) smooth skin
Ans: (c)
Q95. The pterosaurs flew by
(a) jumping off a mountain ledge
(b) pushed by wind before take-off

To a Butterfly I’ve watched you now a full half-hour; Self-poised upon that yellow flower; And, little Butterfly; indeed I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless;—not frozen seas More motionless; and then What joy awaits you, when the breeze Hath found you out among the trees, And calls you forth again; This plot of orchard-ground is ours; My trees they are, my Sister’s flowers; Here rest your wings when they are weary; Here lodge as in a sanctuary; Come often to us, fear no wrong; Sit near us on the bough; We’ll talk of sunshine and of song, And summer days when we were young; Sweet childish days, that were as long As twenty days are now.
