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.
Anaesthesia in any part of the body means a loss of sensation, either permanent or temporary. The term is usually used to describe the artificially produced loss of sensation which makes a surgical operation painless.
There are four main types of anaesthesia: general, spinal, regional and local. Anaesthetics may be given as gases by inhalation, or as drugs injected into a vein. A patient given general anaesthesia loses consciousness. Anaesthesia of a fairly large area of the body results from injecting the anaesthetic drug into the spinal canal. All the portion of the body below the level at which the drug is injected is anaesthetised. Regional anaesthesia is the injecting of the nerves as they emerge from the spinal column. The anaesthesia induced by this method affects only that area of the body supplied by those nerves. In local anaesthesia, the drug is injected directly at the site of the operative incision and sometimes also into the nearby surrounding tissues.
Formerly the most commonly used local anaesthetic was cocaine, a drug extracted from the leaves of the coca bush. It was introduced in 1879. But cocaine had some disadvantages and, sometimes, undesirable side-effects. For spinal, regional and local anaesthetic, procaine, or one of the several modifications of procaine, is now widely used instead of cocaine. For very short operations, such as opening a small abscess, local anaesthesia may be induced by spraying
(rather than injecting) a chemical, ethyl chloride, on a small area of the skin; in changing from the liquid to the gaseous state, this drug freezes the area sprayed, and permits painless incision.

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 121–126)
में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। ऐसा नहीं है कि पहले सब कुछ पवित्र और निष्पाप था और अब सब चौपट हो गया है। पहले भी चीजों को तोड़ने-मरोड़ने, लांछन लगाने और छल-कपट करने की प्रवृत्ति थी, परन्तु उसका विरोध करने का एक दुर्दम्य साहस भी था। एक पत्रकार ने अखबारी नैतिकता की चर्चा करते हुए बताया कि एक बार शहर में चलने वाले सर्कस के बारे में संवाददाता की यह खबर छपी कि ‘सर्कस का हाथी पागल हो गया है।’ लेकिन जब सर्कस के मालिक ने सम्पादक को बताया कि संवाददाता 20 टिकट मुफ्त माँग रहा था, हमने नहीं दिए तो सम्पादक ने खोजबीन की। शिकायत को सही पाया। उसने दूसरे दिन, पहले से भी बड़ी खबर छापी कि ‘सर्कस’ का हाथी नहीं हमारा संवाददाता पागल हो गया है।
यह एक प्रतीकात्मक बात है। दरअसल हर क्षेत्र में ऐसे साहस की जरूरत है, खासकर विकासशील देशों को। यदि वे अपनी-अपनी आपसी टूट-फूट में उलझे रहे तो एक दिन निश्चित मारे जाएँगे। विकासशील देशों के बीच आर्थिक, सामरिक और सूचना-सम्बन्धी गठजोड़ ही नहीं, बल्कि प्रतिरोध और विरोध को जो एक संगठित आवाज का होना आज की सबसे बड़ी जरूरत है। इराक को उसके अकेलेपन ने मारा है और आक्रामक पहले अपने राजनय का उपयोग उन देश को अकेला करने में करता है। विकासोन्मुख देश मानें कि हम परस्पर अस्तित्व में है। इस मिलन के लिए थोड़ा लोभ, थोड़ी भय और थोड़ी ईर्ष्या छोड़नी होगी।
