TET Practice Paper Set-14

(English)

Directions - Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow ( Q.No 1-9) by selecting the most appropriate option.
It is your duty to train and develop your mind and acquire knowledge, as much knowledge as you possibly can obtain. Knowledge is like a deep well, fed by perennial springs, and your Mind is the little bucket that you drop into it : you will get as much as you can assimilate. 
The Brain, which is the physical organ of the mind, is one of the two precious products of the aeons of Evolution : the other is the imponderable 'Social instinct', This wonderful Brain, whose every convolution represents millions of years of Time, really distinguishes you from the animals. Many animals have very powerful sense organs; the eagle, the ant and the dog have keener sense to sight than Man, But no animal has a more evolved Brain and higher Intelligence, If you do not develop and use this Brain to the utmost of your power, you are more akin to the beasts than to Homo- Sapiens,
Knowledge and metal self-culture will confer untold blessings upon yo. You will not b the victim if superstition and demagogy in religion and politics. You will know your duty and do it. To be wise and independent in your religion and your politics, not to be doped and duped by the selfish priests and the scheming politicians of Capitalism and so called
Socialism : is this not a noble aim worth striving for ? Most men and women today are not free and wise: they are like kites flown by the priests and politicians who hold the string. They are fleeced and fooled on account of their ignorance. Half the ills of man are due to ignorance.

Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions (Q. NO. 10-15) that follow by choosing the most appropriate option.

The study of history provides many benefits. First, we learn from the past. We may repeat mistakes, but, at least, we have the opportunity to avoid them. Second, history teachers us what questions to ask about the present. Contrary to some people’s view, the study of history is not the memorization of names, dates, and places. It is the thoughtful examination of the forces that have shaped the courses of human life. We can examine events from the past and then draw inferences about current events. History teaches us about likely outcomes.
Another benefit of the study of history id the broad range of human experience which is covered. War and peace are certainly covered as are national and international affairs.
However, matters of culture (art, literature and music) are also included in historical study. Human nature is an important part of history: emotions like passion, greed, and insecurity have influenced the shaping of world affairs.
