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. Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920)
Ramanujan was born on December 2, 1887, in Erode (south India) as the eldest son in a family of six child-ren. In November 1892, he entered the Town High School at Kumbakonam as a half-fee scholarship-holder and passed the Matriculation Examination in 1904. In the school, he became a minor celebrity, walking off with merit certificates and prizes for academic brilliance. This school nourished him for six years, bringing him as close as he would ever come to a satisfying academic experience. When he was in the seventh standard, he gave clear evidence of his mathematical gifts; he could reel off the square root of a natural number to specified number of places; he could point to the indeterminate nature of zero divided by zero.
Ramanujan’s mother – the family being close to penury – took in college students as boarders who noticing Ramanujan’s interest in mathematics, brought him textbooks from the college library. Loney’s ‘Trigonometry’ was one such treasure which be mastered.
During 1906–1912, Ramanujan was constantly in search of an employer to earn his livelihood. With his “Notebooks” as his only recommendation, he sought the patronage of V.
Ramaswamy Iyer, the founder of the Indian Mathematical Society who was at Tirukovillur and asked for a clerical job in his office. The former had no mind to smother Ramanujan’s genius and sent him back to Madras with a letter of introduction to P.V. Seshu Aiyar, then at the Presidency College, Madras. He gave, in turn, Ramanujan a letter of recommendation to that true lover of mathematics, R.
Ramachandra Rao, District Collector, Nellore. This was the turning point in his life.
On the advice of P.V. Seshu Aiyar, Ramanujan communicated his theorems on divergent series in a historic letter dated January 16, 1913 to G.H. Hardy, who was ten years senior to Ramanujan. With the personal interest of Gilbert Walker and support given by Indian stalwarts the University of Madras awarded its first scholarship to Ramanujan to study in Cambridge. Over three months, Ramanujan received four long letters from Hardy, who had already sprung into action, advising the India Office of his wish to bring him to Cambridge.
