Section A: Reading Skills (20 marks)

Question 1.
Read the following text. (10)

Donated Organs and their Transportation

1. Once an organ donor’s family gives its consent and the organs are matched to a recipient, medical professionals are faced with the onerous challenge of transporting organs while ensuring that the harvested organ reaches its destination in the shortest possible time. This is done in order to preserve the harvested organs which involves the police especially the traffic police department.

2. The traditional method of transporting organs by road is referred to as a “green corridor”. The first green corridor in India was created by Chennai Traffic Police in September 2008, when they accomplished their task of enabling an ambulance to reach its destination within 11 minutes during peak hour traffic. That organ saved a nine year- old girl’whose life depended on the transplant. Similarly, such green corridors have been created by traffic police of various cities such as Pune, Mumbai, Delhi NCR, etc.

3. Experts point out the lack of a robust system to transport organs to super-speciality hospitals in least possible time. National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO), the country’s apex organ donation agency, is now framing a proposal to airlift cadaver organs and will send a report to the Union Health Ministry. “Cadaver organs have a short life and so transplant should be done within a few golden hours.” Director (NOTTO) expressed, “Therefore, we are preparing a proposal for airlifting organs at any given moment.”

4. Most states do not have enough well-trained experts to retrieve or perform transplant procedures. Also, there is an acute shortage of advanced healthcare facilities to carry out a transplant. So, it is referred to other big centres in metropolitan cities. Organs retrieved from Aurangabad, Indore, Surat and Pune are sent to Mumbai as these cities do not have super-speciality healthcare centres, informed officials.

5. “In India, about fifty thousand to one lakh patients are suffering from acute heart failure and need heart transplant at any point of time. In a private set-up, a heart transplant costs 115-20 lakhs, which is followed up by postoperative medication of about ? 30,000 per month lifelong.” Moreover, the risk factor is great hindrance.

Question 2.
Read the following text. (10)

1. Human life changes constantly over time. Mobile phones were previously seen only among few high-class people and were considered as something lavish. Then slowly, even the average or the common men on the street, like a cobbler or vegetable vendor, could be seen having a cell-phone. In the world today, even young kids and school going children are found busily chatting away on their mobile phones. Now kids as young as seven and eight too have started owning a mobile phone. Welcome to the new age world!

2. Studies recommend that mobile phones should only be given to children above sixteen years of age. Children below the age of sixteen should not be given mobile phones since their brain is too sensitive to withstand the effects of mobile radiation. Since the tissues in the brain and body are still developing, these radiations can cause cell damage. Due to the absorption of radiation, children can have severe health issues. Although, adults also get affected by these radiations it will be more severe in children because of increased absorption of these radiation levels. Experts also believe there is a link between childhood cancer and mobile phone usage among children.

3. A survey was conducted to get the views of the parents and teachers as to whether the children below sixteen years of age should be given mobiles or not. The responses received were formulated into a pie diagram as under:

He loved his countrymen very much so the nation called him Bapu – the Father of the Nation. Gandhiji’s main principles were truth and nonviolence. He believed in universal brotherhood and love.

He was of the opinion that if we had conflict with Englishmen, let us not hate the Englishmen because both Englishmen and Indians are offsprings of the same Divinity. He respected all religions equally because he said the essence of all religions is Truth. He advocated universal brotherhood over and above wavering loyalties to nations and religions. On January 30,1948 he was shot dead by Nathu Ram Vinayak Godse in a prayer assembly at Birla House, Delhi.

(B) Write about a time when you were late for an important event. What lesson on punctuality did you learn? Write a descriptive paragraph on the above given situation in 100 – 120 words.
Answer:
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. I learned it a little late and at a very heavy cost. A few years back in 2015,1 had to participate in an Inter-School Championship in Taekwando. I remember my mother waking me up asking me why I was on the sofa. To my surprise, when I saw the time on the wall clock it was 9 a.m. I was late! I dashed to the bathroom, skipped bath, got ready within 10 minutes. But it was all in vain. When I reached the competition spot, the Trophy and Black Belt had already been given to the other player because I didn’t turn up on time. I didn’t lose the competition, it was worse. I didn’t even get a chance to compete and it was all my fault. This taught me the lesson of punctuality thereafter. Now, I am a very responsible, serious, and punctual person.

Question 5.
Attempt ANY ONE from A and B given below.

Answer:
Tuesday

10.00 p.m.

Dear Diary

A person is known by his company, what type of friends he has and how he reacts before them. I am fortunate enough to have a good circle of friends. They are extremely helpful and good-natured people but sometimes I feel quite embarrassed because they all have a good command over English while I do not have as I have done my schooling from a Telugu medium school. Therefore, I hesitate to speak in English before them. It is my heartfelt desire to improve my English speaking skills. Now I want to end this hesitation and move forward in getting fluent in it. In order to increase proficiency in learning the skill of English speaking, one needs to maintain the use of the language. The best way to improve and enhance any skill is that regular practice should be initiated. The best way to acquire the language is to use it with the friends, family, and others continuously. With regular and continuous practice, the language becomes accessible and fluent. Dear Diary! I promise you that I will improve my English speaking skills very soon.

Then ………..
Answer:

Army of Ants

Today, my English paper finished early. While waiting to submit the paper, I had a nice time observing an army of ants on the right hand side wall of the classroom. A red headed fat ant seemed to be the commander and was ordering the rest of the ant army. Then, they started moving in a disciplined manner. Then I noticed a dead bee, lying on the floor near the teacher’s table. The army of ants seemed to be determined to carry that bee to their shelter.

One thing that the army of ants displayed was their unity. Unity is definitely the key to success. The ants were working in a united way and their coordination with one another helped them to carry that body – much bigger and heavier than that of their own. Finally they reached their destination with that bee. Indeed, group work can be effective when work is done with a team spirit.

Albert Einstein could not speak for about two and a half years. And when he learnt to speak, he uttered every word twice. Even his playmates called him ‘Brother Boring’. His head was of abnormally large size. So, his mother thought of him as a freak. Everywhere among his playmates as well as at school, he was regarded stupid and his headmaster considered him to be good for nothing. He felt suffocated and tired in the school due to its strict regimentation. What to say of others, his mother lacked trust in his potentials. She should have accepted her son’s different nature. Later his qualities of tolerance and awareness of global issues made him a world famous personality that proved everyone wrong, including his mother who thought of him as a freak.

OR

(B) Does the poem reflect the human suffering being initiated by wind? Explain with examples.
Answer:
I believe that wind is a poignant example of the metaphor of God’s will for a variety of reasons. First, the wind is invisible, but the effects it has on other aspects of this world, are clear and evident. The poem reflects upon the constructive and destructive paths taken by the wind. Wind is extreme and violent, but not necessarily legitimate with anger and emotions. Wind creates compassion, but apathy at the same time in human life. Winds emphasise the passionate, intense nature of the poet, while the decay and death inherent in the metaphor suggests the sacrifice and suffering of humans. We also see that wind is a metaphor for the God’s will because its effects in this world can be both beneficial or ostensibly destructive.

Question 11.

The disciple in the story didn’t look into the depth of the matter and took a hasty decision of not leaving the kingdom of fools. The disciple was wavered by the prices of the commodities. Anything could be bought with a ‘Duddu’. Either it could be a mass of rice or a bunch of bananas. So, the disciple decided to stay back not listening to his Guru who advised his disciple that it was dangerous to stay back in the kingdom of fools, as there was no justice prevalent in such kingdom. It was when the disciple was chosen as the suitable person for execution, then he realised his mistake. He regretted his decision of staying back. Just one small decision cost his life.

OR

(B) When the Happy Prince was alive he could never come to know anything of sorrow and misery. What do you think he could not learn from his life then ? Describe in about 100 – 120 words.
Answer:
When the Happy Prince was alive, he had no knowledge of sorrow and tears. He was kept away from all the sufferings and sorrows. He always saw people who were happy all around him in his kingdom. He never knew people could be poor and have problems. After his death, he was placed on a tall column. He was covered with golden leaves and had rubies and sapphires studded on him. Standing on the tali column, the Prince could see the miserable condition of the poor people. He helped all the people around him with the help of the swallow.
