Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions thatfollow by Selecting the Prost appropriate option.
Many years ago, I was the chief guest at a function. This was held in ahostel for poor students that had been build by a philanthropist, Food andshelter were free, but students had to bear other expenses like tuition andclothing.
In my younger days, I have come across many families, who would look afterstudents who were economically backward but otherwise bright. They used to helpthem with their fees or clothing and often with their food as well. In thosedays, most colleges were located in larger towns. Many poor students who cameto study in these towns used to stay with these families and would be treatedas part of the family. The Woman of the house considered this a good deed andhelped the poor students wholeheartedly. Today, the situation is different.Even smaller towns have schools and colleges, so this custom has disappeared
. While I was sitting on the dais, I remembered the past and congratulated theperson who had built the hostel. It was a good deed and of great help to manystudents. The hostel secretary told me about some of the students in the hostelwho had secured ranks but had a problem paying their tuition fees,
He said, “Madam, this year we have three students from differentdisciplines who have secured rankas. All of them are from extremely poorfamilies. They have one more year to complete their degrees.”
 “What are they studying?” “One isin medicine, the second in engineering and the third in commerce.”
“Can I meet them after the function?”
The function went on as usual. Often, at such functions too much praise islavished on the chief guest, Sometimes, they even make exaggerated and falseclaims about the chief guest, I feel this unnecessary praising is the highestform of corruption where people are easily fooled, and it encourages those whoare praised to develop an inflated opinion of themselves. That’s why in thetwelfth century, in Karnataka, the great revolutionary leader Basaveshwarawarned in his teaching that praise is like a golden gallows.
After the function, I met the three poor bright boys whom the secretary hadtold me about. They were a little puzzled, shy and nervous. All of them had thesame story: father in a small job unable to make ends meet, a large family backin the village, no land or any other asset. Only sheer determination to excelin studies had brought them here against all odds.
