[Q] Directions (3-7) : In the following questions you have some passage with 5 questions following each passage. Read the passage carefully and choose best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
Real policemen, both in Britain and the United States, hardly recognize any resemblance between their lives and what they see on TV- if they ever get home in time. There are similarities, of course, but the cops don’t think much of them. The first difference is that a policeman’s real life revolves round the law. Most of his training is in criminal law. He has to know exactly what actions are crimes and what evidence can be used to prove them in court. He has to know nearly as much law as a professional lawyer, and what is more, he has to apply It on his feet, in the dark and rain, running down an alley after someone he wants to talk to.
Little of his time is spent in chatting to scantily-clad ladies or in dramatic confrontations with desperate criminals. He will spend most of his working life typing millions of words on thousands of forms about hundreds of sad, unimportant people who are guilty-or not-of stupid, petty crimes.
Most television crime drama is about finding the criminal : as he’s arrested, the story is over. In real life, finding criminals is seldom much of a problem. Except in very serious cases like murders and terrorist attacks where failure to produce results reflects on the standing of the police-little effort is spent on searching. The police have an elaborate machinery which eventually shows up most wanted men.
Q3. The everyday life of a policeman or detective is :
- exciting and glamorous
- full of danger
- spent in recording details about small thefts and crimes
- wasted on unimportant matter
Q4. When murders and terrorist attacks occur the police :
- prefer to wait for the criminal to give himself away
- spend a lot of effort on trying to track their man down
- try to make a quick arrest in order to keep up their reputation
- usually fail to produce results
