All the time, we heard about cruelty, wars, atomic bomb attacks, accidents, mishaps etc. But it’s not our will to abstain from these things.

    Write an essay on any one of the given topics. It should comprise of 200-230 words. You can write in favor or against the topic.

    "Young generation is more cautious about their physical appearance." Comment.
    OR
    Should there still be colleges and schools just for men/boys and some just for women/girls?
    Islam is our religion. We should obey the teachings and fulfill its demand. Being a Muslim, we should know that Allah almighty has ordered the men and women not to disclose one another without marriage. Women should keep their matters, institutions, and working departments separate. Allah also ordered men to keep their eyes in control, and not to stare at any girl or women.
    Colleges are the places where student interact with one another. They share study, want help from one another. During break timings, friends go to cafeteria and spend a lot of time in library also. So this may also create wrong impact on their life. May be which will affect their whole life. Some students react in strange manner. They even leave their study and become indulge in clubs, parties and fun with girls. Not all boys and girl are alike but we should abstain from the matters which are forbidden in Islam.

    A person however pious he/she may be, indulge in the society he/she keeps. As we know that “A man is known by the company he keeps.” So, if we join a co-education may be our friends(both girls and boys) do not match with our behavior and we may lose our Iman, which is the most precious thing for a Muslim. At last, which I think is that men and women, girl and boys, should study alone, they should not interact with one another as it will pollute the environment in another way.



    Question No: 20 (Marks: 10 )
    Write an essay on any one of the given topics. It should comprise of 200-230 words.

    Abuse at home and domestic violence should be punished.
    OR
    Media violence has a negative effect.

    Childhood is the age of getting and loosing habits. If a child, from the beginning starts hard work, he/she will become habitual of it, which will provide benefit to him/her in his/her whole life. Conversely, if a child becomes habitual of some ill mannered acts such as abusing at home he/she will suffer a lot in future. After all he/ she has to came out of home at some stage and when he entered in practical life what other people think about him. People will think that parents didn’t instruct their child and are careless.

    Similarly in our homes, it is seen that people used to do violence even, between father and mother. Such a child which from childhood used to see these things will be greatly affected. The quarrel between the children at home is also very common. But if a child is not controlled, then he will become so habitual that he may do violence on others in practical life ,may be his friends, wife or any other.

    So the point I want to clear is that, we should punish the child or anyone at home because, home is the first place from where the child get up things after mother’s lap. But do not punish so intently that the child may left the home or any other misdeed he did. If we will not do so, it will have big drawbacks in future for all
    members of family.

    Solution:
    1- Tommy and John were hot and sweaty as they sat outside the principal’s office. Dirt smeared both of their faces, and they could hear their teacher’s voice as she gave Mr. Jones her account of what had happened. Tommy sneered at John and John returned the angry glare. As Miss Brown left Mr. Jones’ office, the boys hung their heads so they wouldn’t have to look her in the eye.
    From this paragraph you can infer that...
    a) The boys were best friends.
    b) The boys had disappointed their teacher.
    c) The principal was a nice man.
    What do you infer about the boys from the passage?

    Question No: 68 ( Marks: 5 )
    Express your views on the given topic in paragraph form. It should comprise of 100-130 words.
    The Pen is Mightier than the Sword.

    It all started with that question. The one that all writers dread. The one that every one thinks is original and that we do not mind talking about it. Such a simple question, but one that has caused me so much trouble.

    What's worse, I ruined my best fountain pen. The one I've always used to work with. None of this pc, Mac, word processor stuff for me. No, a decent pad of paper and my favorite fountain pen.

    I had nothing against the man but he wasn't the first to ask it at the party. Every time I declared myself to be a writer that question came, with its gloss of false interest. Then the ideas for plots. How do you think of plots, are clocks important for alibis. I tried once to say that I wrote romance rather than crime, but got loads of embarrassing questions about sex. I'm not a therapist you know.

    And then people would ask my name. “Your not. The one who wrote that book?” I hate that book. I hate that character with his know it all ways and mismatched clothes. I suppose I should have gone home and poisoned him off. Only then people would have wanted me to resurrect him like Conan Doyle did to Holmes.

    I had my pen in my hand. People had been warned that I would be there, so they brought their books along. How underhand to organize a book signing without giving me a fee. Soon there was a queue of them. All excited about meeting me. How they were a great fan. How did I think of my plots? And that question.

    I suppose I had a brain storm. Writing psychological fiction I must have read about them. But when he asked it I snapped. The fact that his tie was out of date and an offensive color may have been a factor, that and his bad breath. Any way I was provoked.

    I struck a blow. Having read up on pathology and human biology I must have subconsciously gone for a vital spot. But when I struck that blow I did so for writers every where.

    If he hadn't asked the question he would be alive now. I never knew there was something in ink that stopped blood clotting. If he hadn't asked the question I would still have my fountain pen. If he hadn't asked the question I would not be experiencing what goes on after the book is finished, what happens to those who-done-it after they have been caught.

    But I'll tell you this. People won't be saying “Oh you're a writer. Are you writing anything at the moment?” Too soon. And if they do – watch out.
    Question No: 69 ( Marks: 5 )
    Read the following passage carefully and summarize it avoiding repetition:
    There is a fourth dimension to any garden that may often be overlooked. This is the dimension of fragrance, and although its appreciation is not new, it seems to have been cast aside to make room for texture, form and color. Fragrance is subjective, and opinions of it diverse, but it is unquestionable that the garden planted with scented flowers offers the added bonus of fragrance in addition to form and color. It has been said that smell is the sense that is most memorable and that none of the other senses is more subtle in its suggestions or more reminiscent of a certain time. The purpose of a flower's fragrance is thought to be very attractive for nectar-feeding insects.
