Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow (Q. 91–99) by selecting the most appropriate option.
One Sunday morning, I was travelling on the subway in Mumbai. People were sitting quietly – some reading newspaper, some lost in thought. It was a calm, peaceful scene.
Then suddenly, a man and his children entered the subway
car. The children were so loud and rambunctious that instantly the whole climate changed.
The man sat next to me and closed his eyes, apparently oblivious to the situation. The children were yelling back and forth, thronging things, even grabbing people’s papers. It was very disturbing. And yet, the man sitting next to me did nothing.
It was difficult not to feel irritated. I could not believe that he could be so insensitive as to let his children run wild and do nothing about it. It was easy to see that everyone else on the subway felt irritated too. So finally, I turned to him and said, “Sir, your children are really disturbing a lot of people. I wonder if you couldn’t control them a little more?” The man lifted his gaze as if to come to a consciousness of the situation for the first time and said softly, “Oh, you’re right. I guess I should do something about it. We just came from the hospital where their mother died an hour ago, I don’t know what to think and I guess they don’t know how to handle it either”.
Can you imagine what I felt at that moment. My paradigm shifted. Suddenly I saw things differently. My irritation vanished; my heart was filled with the man’s pain. Feelings of sympathy and compassion flowed freely. “Your wife just died?

You came from within, from just beneath my heart It’s there you’ll always be though your own life will now start.
You’re growing so fast it sends me a whirl, With misty eyes I ask, Where’s my little girl?
I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair, But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.
The next few years will so quickly fly, With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry.
As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know, You’ll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.
You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear.
For all your dreams and goals, sit before you very near.
With God’s love in your heart and the world by its tail, You’ll always be my winner, and victory will prevail.
For you this poem was written, with help from above, To tell you in a rhythm of your Mother’s heartfelt love Kay Theese

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 127–135) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। स्थान-विशेष की जलवायु तथा वातावरण के अनुरूप एक जाति रंग-रूप और स्वभाव में दूसरी से भिन्न रही है और प्रत्येक में अपनी विशेषताओं की रक्षा के लिए स्वभावगत प्रेरणा की प्रचुर मात्रा रहती है। आत्मरक्षा के अतिरिक्त उन्हें अपनी जातिगत विशेषताओं की चिन्ता भी थी, अत: उनमें व्यवहार के लिए ऐसे विशेष नियम भी बनने लगे जिनका पालन व्यक्ति की आत्मरक्षा के लिए न होकर जाति की विशेषताओं की रक्षा के लिए अनिवार्य था। आत्मरक्षा की भावना के साथ-साथ मनुष्य में जाति की विशेषताओं की रक्षा की भावना भी बढ़ती गई जिससे उसके जीवन सम्बन्धी नियम, विस्तृत और जटिल होने लगे। समूह-द्वारा निश्चित नियम-सम्बन्धी समझौते के विरूद्ध आचरण करनेवाले को दण्ड मिलने का विधान था, परन्तु इस विधान द्वारा छिपकर विरूद्धचरण करने वालों को नहीं रोका जा सकता था। अतएव कालान्तर में उन नियमों के साथ पारलौकिक सुख-दु:खों की भावना भी वैध गई। मनुष्य को स्वभाव से ही अज्ञात का भय था, इसी से उसके निर्माण के सब कार्यो में एक अज्ञात कर्ता प्रमुख रहा है। इस अज्ञात का दण्ड और पुरस्कार मनुष्य के आचरण को इतना अधिक प्रभावित करता आ रहा है कि अब इस महत्त्व में समाज के वास्तविक दण्ड और पुरस्कार के साथ एक ही तुला पर तौला जा सकता है। आरम्भ में, यदि समाज के रोष या प्रसाद से उत्पन्न लौकिक हानि और लाभ आचरण को ढालने के कठोर साँचे थे, तो पार-लौकिक सुख-दु:खों की भावना उस मानसिक संस्कार का दृढ़ आधार थी, जिससे आचरण को रूप मिलता है। इस प्रकार लौकिक सुविधा की नींव पर नैतिक उपकरणों से, धार्मिकता का रंग देकर हमारी सामाजिकता का प्रसाद निर्मित हो सका। जिस क्रम से मनुष्य सभ्यता के मार्ग पर अग्रसर होता गया उसी क्रम से समाज के नियम अधिकाधिक परिष्कृत होते गऐ और पूर्ण विकसित तथा व्यवस्थित समाज में वे केवल व्यावहारिक सुविधा के साधनमात्र न रहकर सदस्यों के नैतिक तथा धार्मिक विकास के साधन भी हो गए।
