Passage – 1

 

It is impossible for a well-educated, intellectual or brave man to make money the chief object of his thought, just as it is for him to make his dinner the principal object of them. All healthy people like their dinners, but their dinner is not the main object of their lives. So all healthy-minded people like making money – ought to like it, and to enjoy the sensation of winning it; but the main object of their life is not money; it is something better than money. A good soldier, for instance, mainly wants to do his fighting well. He is glad of his pay, very properly so, and justly grumbles when you keep him ten years without it – still his main notion of life is to win battles, not to be paid for winning them. So of the doctor. They like fees, no doubt, ought to like them; yet if they are brave and well-educated, the entire object of their lives is not fees. They, on the whole, desire to cure the sick; and if they are good doctors, and the choice were fairly put to them, they would rather cure their patient, and lose the fees, then kill him and get it. And so with all other brave and rightly trained men; their work is first, their fees second- very important, no doubt, but still second. But in every nation, there are a vast number of people who are ill-educated, cowardly and stupid. And with these people, just as certainly, the fee is first and work second, as with brave people the work is first and fee second.

(b) The main object of a good soldier is to attach no importance to money.

Passage – 2

 

Unquestionably, a literary life is for the most part an unhappy life, because, if you have genius, you must suffer the penalty of genius; and if you have only talent there are so many cares and worries incidental to the circumstances of men of letters, as to make life exceedingly miserable. Besides the pangs of composition, and the continuous disappointment which a true artist feels at his- inability to reveal himself, there is the ‘ever-recurring difficulty of gaining the public ear. Young writers are buoyed up by the hope and the belief, that they have only to throw that poem at the world’s feet to get back in return the laurel crown; that they have only to push that novel into print to be acknowledged at once as a new light in literature. You can never convince a young author that the editors of magazines and the publishers of books are a practical body of men, who are by no means frantically anxious about placing the best  literature before the public. Nay, that, for the most part, they are mere brokers, who conduct their business on the hardest lines of a Profit and Loss account. But supposing your book fairly launches; its perils are only beginning. You have to run the gauntlet of the critics. To a young author, again, this seems to be a terrible order. When you are a little older, you will find that criticism is not much more serious than the bye-play of clowns in a circus, when they beat about the ring the victim with bladders slung at the end of long poles. A time comes in the life of every author when he regards critics as comical, rather than formidable; and goes his way unheeding. But there are sensitive souls that yield under the chastisement, and perhaps after suffering much silent torture, abandon the profession of the pen for ever. Keats, perhaps, is the saddest example of a fine spirit hounded to death by savage criticism; because, whatever his biographers may aver, that furious attack of Gifford and Terry undoubtedly expedited his death. But no doubt there are hundreds who suffer keenly from hostile and unscrupulous criticism; and who have to bear that suffering in silence, because it is a cardinal principle in literature that the most unwise thing in the world for an author is to take public notice of criticism in the way of defending himself. Silence is the only safeguard, as it is the only dignified protest against insult and offence.

 

Q68. The writer’s attitude towards the literary critics is of

(a) reverence

(b) indifference

(c) scorn

(d) respect

 

Q69. The writer’s advice to the literary artists regarding criticism of their work is to

(c) candid

(d) canny

 

Q72. The literary publishers publish only what is

(a) best

(b) saleable

(c) topical

(d) hand

 

Passage – 3

 

The situation of Columbus was daily becoming more and more critical. In proportion as he approached the regions where he expected to find land, the impatience of the crew augmented. The favourable signs which increased his confidence were derided by them as delusive; and there was danger of their rebelling and obliging him to turn back, when on the point of realising the object of all his labours. They beheld themselves with dismay still wafted onward, over the boundless wastes of what appeared to them a mere watery desert surrounding the habitable world. What was to become of them should their provisions fail? Their ships were too weak and defective even for the great voyage they had already made, but if they still were to press forward, adding at every moment to the immense expanse behind them, how should they ever be able to return, having no intervening port where they might victual and refit?
Were they to sail on until they perished, or until all return became impossible? In such case they would be the authors of their own destruction.

(b) that Columbus would complain about them
(c) that they would never find land
(d) that Columbus would have them in the lurch

Passage – 4

 

To write well you have to be able to write clearly and logically, and you cannot do this unless you can think clearly and logically. If you cannot do this, yet you should train yourself to do it by taking particular problems and following them through, point by point, to a solution, without leaving anything out and without avoiding any difficulties that you meet. At first you may find clear, step-by-step thought very difficult. You may find that your mind is not able to concentrate. Several unconnected ideas may occur together. But practice will improve your ability to concentrate on a single idea and think about it clearly and logically. In order to increase your vocabulary and to improve your style, you should read widely. Use a good dictionary to help you find the exact meaning and correct usage of words. Always remember that regular and frequent practice is necessary if you want to learn to write well. It is no good waiting
until you have an inspiration before you write. Even with the most famous writers, inspiration is rare. Someone said that writing is ninety-nine percent hard work and one percent inspiration, so the sooner you get into the habit of disciplining yourself to write, the better.
Q78. According to the passage, a good writer needs
(a) inspiration

(b) the ability to work hard and practise

(c) a single idea

(d) the ability to concentrate
