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.
1. Karuna Verma is bewildered. “I don’t know how she did it,” she says about her mother, Renu Chopra. Karuna’s childhood memories are of her father leaving late for office so that, by then, her mother would be back from work – of her parents working in sync to make sure the kids were well taken care of – of her mother handling kitchen and classroom with ease.
2. When her own daughter was born, Karuna too wanted to do the balancing act. But it did not turn out to be as easy as it seemed. For starters, her parents’ era was different from hers. As she was living with her husband in Andheri, Mumbai, away from their families, resuming work would have meant leaving her daughter with a maid while she was away. Her daughter’s formative years would be spent with an outsider, a thought that did not appeal to Karuna. She quit her teaching job in a school.
3. For a woman who was encouraged to be independent throughout her life, the decision to quit and stay at home was a difficult one. Ironically, it was her mother who urged her to quit the job and become a full-time mother. For Karuna, being a housewife is one of the tougher jobs she has had. “I have no time for myself,” says Karuna. “I make sure all my personal work is done when Avni is asleep. Earlier I had a set routine. My husband and I used to wake up at 6 a.m. I would reheat the food the maid had cooked the day before and pack it for lunch. Then we used to head off to work, and at night, we would go out. I had a lot of time to myself and for my husband then,” says Karuna.
4. The routine is quite different now. Karuna has taken to cooking. She wakes up quite early and makes sure all her work is done before the baby is up. The rest of the day flies by pandering to two-year-old Avni’s needs.
Q91. Karuna Verma is bewildered at
(a) the amount of work that she has to do afterbecoming a mother
(b) the late hours of work that her father followed
(c) the responsibility of bringing up a daughter in a bigcity

Ans: (d)
Q92. ‘… parents working in sync’ means

Q93. ‘… Karuna too wanted to do the balancing act’. In this sentence, the term ‘balancing act’ implies
(a) sharing of responsibilities by both husband and wife
(b) a mother’s ability to look after her child withoutquitting her job
(c) managing the time efficiently so that parents canspend quality time with their children
(d) making adjustments in order to balance work and leisure properly
Ans: (b)
Q94. ‘As she was living with her husband in Andheri, Mumbai, away from their families.’ In this sentence, ‘their families’ refers to
(a) Karuna’s mother and father’s families
(b) Karuna’s husband’s family
(c) Families of friends in Andheri, Mumbai
(d) Karuna’s parents and in-laws
Ans: (d)
Q95. Karuna’s parents and her husband’s parents probably lived
(a) in Andheri, Mumbai
(b) in some other city

(d) with Karuna and her husband
Ans: (b)
Q96. Karuna decided to quit her job because
(a) she was not interested in her teaching job
(b) she did not want her daughter to spend her earlyyears with a maid
(c) she wanted to have more time to herself and for herhusband
(d) she wanted to pay more attention to her cooking

एक ही विचार की अभिव्यक्ति के लिए पाँच वाक्यों में तीन ‘स्वीकृत’ माने जा सकते हैं, एक को स्वीकार किया जा सकता है और एक अस्वीकृत या अमान्य। मुख्य समस्या अस्वीकृत तथा अमान्य वाक्यों से बचने की है। कभी-कभी ऐसे वाक्यों के अर्थ में अस्पष्टता होती है और कभी कोई भिन्न अर्थ निकलता है।
