Direction (Q. No. 66-70) : Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option :
Happy is the man who acquires habit of reading when he is young. He has secured a life-long source of pleasure, instruction and inspiration. Ruskin calls books, “King’s treasures”-treasuries filled, not with gold and silver and precious stones but with riches much more valuable than these – knowledge, noble thoughts and high ideals. Poor indeed is the man who does not read and empty is his life.
The blessings which the reading habit confers on its possessor are many. Provided we choose the right kind of books. Reading gives the highest kind of pleasure. Some books we read simply for pleasure and amusement. For example, good novels. And novels and books of imagination must have their place in everybody’s reading.
But to read nothing but books of fiction is like eating nothing but cakes and sweetmeats. As we need plain, wholesome food for the body, so we must have serious reading for the mind. And here we can choose according to our taste. There are many noble books on history, biography, philosophy, religion, travel and science which we ought to read and which will give us not only pleasure but an education.
Nor should poetry be neglected, for poetry gives us noble thoughts and beautiful imaginings clothed in lovely and musical language.

Q70. Choose the most appropriate title of the passage (Writer’s main thrust in the passage):
(A) Story of a happy man
(B) King’s treasures
(C) Habit of good reading
(D) Knowledge and education

Direction (Q. No. 71-75): Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option:
Human life is verily a play of mind. The Karmas we perform largely depend on our state of mind. So, it is the mind that determines the nature of a man. A calm and controlled mind propels a man towards attainment of divine attributes. An unbridled mind takes one towards demonical deeds and plays havoc in society and leads to bondage.
The mind of a man is virtual mirror of his attributes. A man may possess a particular ‘guna’ or be a mixture of all the three sattwa, rajas and tamas. People with sattwa guna have a calm and serene nature. The vibrations of such people have a salubrious effect on society. Tamas and rajas pull a man downwards. The various ills afflicting society come from these two attributes.
All actions are scripted by the mind. Our body is just an instrument to carry out the dictates of the mind. There is a deep connection between attributes and actions. Our Karmas depend on our propensities. A guna will make a person to perform an action that befits its nature. The self within is actionless. It is the silent witness.
Q71. What basically determine the nature of a man :
(A) Three gunas – sattwa, rajas and tamas
(B) Our Karmas or actions
(C) The self or consciousness
(D) None of these

Q72. What basically leads to demonical deeds:
(A) Presence of rajas and tamas gunas
(B) Man’s mind
(C) Karmas
(D) None of these

Q73. Divine attributes signify:
(A) Godly actions
(B) Godly qualities
(C) Godly dictates
(D) All of these

Q74. What, according to the author, remains passive:
(A) State of mind
(B) Attributes
(C) Karmas
(D) The self within

Q75. Find the word in the passage which means ‘habit of behaving in a particular way’:
(A) Propensities
(B) Attributes
(C) Salubrious
(D) None of these
