  • 2. bitterness of my characters increased. Some of them became real monsters, while others showed fewer signs of sanity. I was amazed at the powerful creations that my emotions had unleashed. Not only had my emotions helped to create a world of my own; they had made me a writer as well. (1) Earlier when I wrote, I undermined the power of emotions and preferred to be inspired by facts. (2) When I was disgusted or hurt, I wrote. (3) Writing style truly represents the source of a writer’s inspiration and ideas. (4) My negative experiences translated into vicious characters on paper. (5) I am a victim of my emotions.4. Owned by the Wrigleys, this magnificent piece of art had walls made from Portland stone.

It was an unknown architect’s brilliant creation that displayed a refined taste and superior technical knowledge. (1) For centuries, the Wrigley family had bought numerous properties all over the world. (2) The Wrigley’s mansion was one of the best properties in this area. (3) The mansion was not too different from any others in this part of the country. (4) Its architectural beauty had drawn many admirers from all over the world. (5) The house was , if it could be called one, was magnificient.DIRECTIONS for Questions 5 to 7: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow.“A boy is not happy owing to his age; boys who are called happy are being congratulated by reason ofthe hopes we have for them. For there is required not only complete virtue, but also a complete life,since many changes occur in life, and all manner of chances, and the most prosperous may fall intogreat misfortunes in old age.”In other words, what Aristotle is saying is that what is required for happiness is “a complete life” whichobviously no young person has while he is still young. He makes the same point in another way. Herefers to the story of Croesus and Solon, as told by the ancient Greek historian, Herodotus. Croesus wasKing of Lydia, and one of the richest and most powerful rulers of his day. Solon was one of the wisestmen of Greece. Here is the story of their conversation.“Solon set out upon his travels, in the course of which he came on a visit to Croesus at Sardis. Croesusreceived him as his guest, and lodged him in the royal palace, and had his servants conduct him over histreasures, and show him all their greatness and magnificence. And when Solon had seen them all.Croesus said, ‘Stranger of Athens, I have heard much of your wisdom and of your travels through manylands. I am curious therefore to ask you, whom of all the men that you have seen, you consider the mosthappy?’ This he asked because he thought himself the happiest of mortals: but Solon answered himwithout flattery: ‘Tell us of Athens, sire.’ Astonished at what he heard, Croesus demanded sharply,‘And why do you consider Tell us the happiest of men?’ To which the other replied, ‘First because hiscountry was flourishing in his days, and he himself had sons both beautiful and good, and he lived tosee children born to each of them, and these children all grew up; and further because, after a life spentin what our people look upon as comfort his end was glorious. In a battle between tie Athenians andtheir neighbors near Eleusis, he died gallantly upon the field. And the Athenians gave him a publicfuneral and paid him the highest honors.” Thus, Solon admonished Croesus by the example of Tell us. www.zioneducationonline.com 9899758900, 9891638000 Leading institute for MBA/GMAT/GRE/BBA/BCA/Hotel Mgt/Law entrance exams Centres at: North Campus, Pitampura, Rajinder Nagar, Noida, Greater Noida, Indirapuram(Ghaziabad)
  • 3. When he had ended, Croesus asked angrily, ‘Is my happiness, then, so little to you that you do not evenput me on a level with private men?’5. It can be inferred from the passage that according to Aristotle (1) Young people cannot be happy. (2) Young people lack complete virtue. (3) Young people can be happy if they have children. (4) There are many factors which need to be fulfilled for a young person to be happy. (5) Young people can be happy if they have high hopes.6. Which of the following is most likely to follow the passage as Solon’s answer to Croesus? (1) ‘I see that You are wonderfully rich and are the lord of many nations, and as for your question, I would like to hear of the wealth that you have amassed’. (2) ‘I see that You are wonderfully rich and are the lord of many nations, but as for your question, I have no answer to give until I hear that you have closed your life happily’ (3) ‘I see that You are wonderfully rich and are the lord of many nations, but as for your question, I have no answer to give until I hear about your children and grandchildren’ (4) ‘I see that You are wonderfully rich and are the lord of many nations, but as for your question, I have no answer to give until I hear that you have led a virtuous life’. (5) ‘I see that You are wonderfully rich and are the lord of many nations, but as for your question, I have no answer to give until I hear how you have faced misfortune’.7. A tone /emotion which is not part of the passage would be? (1) Rebuke (2) Rhetorical (3) Narration 4) Didactic (5) PityDIRECTIONS for Questions 8 to 10: Arrange the sentences A, B, C and D to form a logical sequencebetween sentences 1 and 6.8. 1. Meeting people after nine to ten years, almost to the day, is a very weird experience. A. It genuinely felt awkward to meet people, some married and some with children, others married but who forgot to send out 200 cards to school friends, others, divorced. B. I did find out that the marriage was unhappy for all the wrong reasons, none because of the obnoxious twit that he is. C. I actually felt sorry for one of those guys, because, and if you knew equation with him in the school bus where we almost killed each other a few times, I would not have wished a divorce on him -though, I would not have wished any woman on him either. D. I am in close touch with a couple of school friends - Doc, for example is an ass I can still call my best friend after twenty years - but my god, did he (or rather his overheating BMW) push my patience on Saturday night. 6.

Climate change will trigger a chain of events that is likely to prompt an increase in HIV rates world wide, an expert has warned. A. Daniel Tarantola of the University of New South Wales (UNSW) said the disadvantage in developing countries must be addressed if the world is to prevent a dramatic escalation of the HIV epidemic as well as other health problems. B. "It was clear soon after the emergence of the HIV epidemic that discrimination, gender inequality and lack of access to essential services have made some populations more vulnerable than others, "Tarantola said on Wednesday. C. "Today, additional threats are lurking on the horizon as the global economic situation deteriorates, food scarcity worsens and climate change begins to affect those who were already dependent on survival economies," Tarantola said. D. David Cooper, also of UNSW, said: “Science has achieved great strides towards shaping a more effective response to HIV. 6. Yet research has not succeeded in producing the hoped-for magic bullets of either a cure or a vaccine.” (1) BACD (2) DCBA (3) CDBA (4) ABCD (5) ADCBDIRECTIONS for questions 11 to 14: Fill in the blanks with the correct option given below:11.

(B) a contradiction to the intent of the passage. (C) a far-fetched conclusion. (D) Irrelevant to the passage.PassageRamesh Melwani joined a leading leather company. An entrepreneur-driven, fast growing, exporter ofleather accessories, the company had been doubling its turnover every year for the last six years.Melwani joined with a 2.5-fold jump in salary. Within a week he was back in his old company. Reason:he couldnt survive the ruthless, 16-hour-a-day regimen, where the individual was given no respect.Today hes a lot poorer, a lot happier.15. High salaries do not necessarily motivate or help retain talent in an organisation.16. The entrepreneur alone can make or break an organisation.17. The irrevocable bottom line in the new age organisations is human resource development.DIRECTIONS for question 18 Relate to the following passage and answer the question:An important question remains: Why has atheism and skepticism toward religion suddenly emerged asa question of great current interest, at least among the literate, in the past few years? Clearly somethinghas happened to break atheists of their tendency to nurture their disbelief privately and to keep theiropinions to themselves.It seems obvious that politics has a lot to do with this, specifically the cultivation of the religious rightas a phalanx of conservative storm-troopers who are rewarded by conservative politicians by havingtheir singular dogmas incorporated, as much as possible, into public policy. The increasing pressure onwomen’s reproductive rights, the suppression of stem cell research and, most egregiously, the freshintrusion of creationism into public schools are primary instances of this. Beyond these concretehorrors, there is no escaping the fact that the miasma of compulsory religiosity has thickened anddiffused throughout society. For instance, one notes, rather queasily, the success of the Evangelicals inturning the Air Force Academy into a virtual fundamentalist seminary where cadets from all sorts ofbackgrounds are relentlessly pressured by officers and upperclassmen into declaring for the Born-Agains. www.zioneducationonline.com 9899758900, 9891638000 Leading institute for MBA/GMAT/GRE/BBA/BCA/Hotel Mgt/Law entrance exams Centres at: North Campus, Pitampura, Rajinder Nagar, Noida, Greater Noida, Indirapuram(Ghaziabad)
  • 6. Atheists, who, despite polls, have never been all that rare, have come to mistrust the notion that theycan believe as they will, undisturbed, provided they remain discreet about it. The mood fostered by thereligious right seems to tend toward the inquisitorial. Scientists, in particular, representing the onevocation in which non-belief is the norm, rather than the outlier, have sensibly concluded that theculture in which they have quietly lived is being attacked at its foundations. It’s one thing to send yourkids to a public school where “under god” is formulaically recited as part of the daily Pledge ofAllegiance. It’s quite another to have your kid’s elementary biology class interrupted by haranguesagainst ‘Darwinism’, or to see the Bible, taught as literal truth, surreptitiously introduced into thecurriculum. When matter shave come to that pass, scientists, among others, see little point in notfighting back openly. Thus, one now sees a torrent of books, largely by scientists and sympatheticphilosophers, striking back not only at the enemies of stem-cell research and the proponents ofIntelligent Design Theory, but at the very roots of the cultural tic that provides these miscreants suchfertile ground: supernatural religion predicated upon a supreme being.Then, too, one must consider the possibility that, as the ostensible religious uniformity of the nationbegins to dissolve, the sort of person who habitually responds to questionnaires about faith by listinghimself as ‘unaffiliated, but a believer’ has, at long last, become more honest with himself and with therest of us, frankly acknowledging the deep vein of skepticism underlying his disinclination to become achurchgoer. I suspect that many of the readers of the New Atheists’ books fall into this category, andare more willing to let their doubts see the light of day.18. In the light of your reading of the passage above, identify the option that contains the set of words CLOSEST in the meaning to the words in CAPITALS: EGREGIOUS: SKEPTICISM: INQUISITORIAL (A) blatant: suspicion : intolerant (B) intolerant : certitude : keen (C) balanced: confident : inane (D) mean : interrogation : impatient (E) unsure: bored: crazyDIRECTIONS for Question 19: Each of the following questions has a paragraph from which the lastsentence has been deleted.From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.19. The difference between the revolutionary and the terrorist lies in the reason for which each fights. For whoever stands by a just cause and fights for the freedom and liberation of his land from the invaders, the settlers and the colonialists cannot possibly be called terrorist, otherwise the American people in their struggle for liberation from the British colonialists would have been terrorists the European resistance against the Nazis would be terrorism, the struggle of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples would also be terrorism, and many of you who are in this Assembly hall were considered terrorists. This is actually a just and proper struggle consecrated by the United Nations Charter and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As to those who fight against the just causes, those who wage war to occupy, colonize and oppress other people, those are the terrorists. (1) They are the ones who invade everywhere; they are the ones with no clear goal. (2) Because the justice of the cause determines the right to struggle. (3) The end is as important as the means. www.zioneducationonline.com 9899758900, 9891638000 Leading institute for MBA/GMAT/GRE/BBA/BCA/Hotel Mgt/Law entrance exams Centres at: North Campus, Pitampura, Rajinder Nagar, Noida, Greater Noida, Indirapuram(Ghaziabad)

Native Chinese geography begins in the Warring States period (5th century BC). It expands its scope beyond the Chinese homeland with the growth of the Chinese Empire under the Han Dynasty.
