(B) Akcessible
(C) Accesseble
(D) Accesible

2. (A) Camouflage
(B) Camaflouge
(C) Cemoufleae
(D) Cemouflage

Directions: In Question Nos. 3 to 12, you have two brief passages with 5 questions following each passage. Read the passages carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.

Passage – I (Q. Nos. 3 – 7)
The Critical Faculty is the most potent one in the human make-up. Its pervasiveness and force have not properly been recognized because like breathing, it is so much a part and parcel of human activity. The difference between a  simpleton and an intelligent man, according to the man who is convinced that  he is of the latter  category, is that the former wholeheartedly accepts all things that he sees an ears while the latter never admits anything except after a most searching scrutiny. He imagines his intelligence to be a sieve of closely woven mesh through which nothing but the finest can pass.

The critical sense is essential for keeping social transactions in a warm state. Otherwise life would become very dull and goody -goody. The critical faculty is responsible for a lot of give and take in life. It increases our awareness of our surrondings; it sounds dignified no doubt, but it seems also to mean that we can watch someone else's back better than our own. We never know our own defects till they are pointed out to us, and even then we need not accept them. We alwaysquestion the bonafides of the man who tells us unpleasant facts. On the surface it is all very well to say, 'I want an honest criticism; that will help me, not compliments.' I wish people would mean it.

3. The negative side of the critical faculty is that
(A) it makes us critical of others.
(B) it makes us critical of ourselves.
(C) it sounds dignified but it is not actually so.
(D) it is a tool for creating classificatory division.

4. People who solicit others opinions (about themselves) generally want
(A) effusive compliments
(B) honest criticism
(C) harsh facts
(D) precise feedback

5. The critical faculty is defined as the `most potent one in human make-up' because
(A) it is all pervasive and powerful.
(B) it separates the simpleton from the intelligent man.
(C) it is a help in social transactions.
(D) All of the above

6. What, according to the writer, is the essential link between breathing and the critical faculty?
(A) Both are required in social relations
(B) Both are exercised by human beings
(C) Both grow with age
(D) Both stop with death

7. The self-defined intelligent man defines himself on the basis of
(A) his obvious divergence from the simpleton.
(B) his superior intelligence as a whole.
(C) his possession of the critical faculty.
(D) lar his heightened awareness of his surroundings.

Directions: In Question Nos. 8 to 10, some parts of the sentences have errors and some are correct. Find out which part of a sentence has an error

8. A chill wind blew (A)/ and icy fingers of death (B)/ crept up my spine(C) /No error (D)

9. Such rules (A)/ do not apply to (B)/ you and I(C)/ No error

10. The river(A)/has overflown(B)/its banks(C)/No error(D)

2) Ans. (A) Camouflage
3) Ans. (A) it makes us critical of others.
4) Ans. (A) effusive compliments
5) Ans. (A) it is all pervasive and powerful.
