Default Practice of Precis Writing(PMS+CSS)

Here I'm going to practice precis writing not only for PMS but also for CSS.

Co-operation is "one of the keys" to success So Join me

Here is paragraph.


All human beings are liable to err. To be at peace with oneself,the realization of this fact is essential.Humanity is faced with numerous struggles and difficulties.We should view our own problems as part of a universal struggle and brace ourselves to meet every difficulty with fortitude.To be frantic and desperate n such occasions cannot help the situation .Perhaps the greatest folly is for each of us to hug his troubles to himself.Often the path through our worst worries can be made smoother if we seek the guidance of a trusted friend. But there are limits to human wisdom.The only adequate way to endure large evils is to find large consolations.The key to this search is prayer.The faith in a beneficent "Higher Power" can carry us through our most anxious moments.It has cured many people of their diseases and banished melancholy from their hearts.It was faith in God coupled with hardwork, which enabled Alexis Carrel to face ridicule and rejection calmly and finally became the recipient of the Nobel Prize.Finally ,how much less we should be if we could see our struggle as a part of the struggle of a whole creation intent on growth and renewal. By doing so, we not only make our lives easier ,but we also add our bit to the sum of human dignity and faith.

Precis

Man is not perfect so one should not take his mistakes on heart and consider his problems as universal struggle.The best way to combat evils and hopelessness,one should rely on divine medicine,that is prayer and faith in Almighty.Only hard work along with faith leads to success like as Alexis Carrel who achieved Nobel prize.One should consider his individual struggle as contribution in betterment of humanity.

Cool plz check

One should be comfortable to realize this that all humans are subject to mistakes because of diversity of problems. To face problem courageously it is needed to have trusted friend but the most reliable way is to have faith on God, which results are beyond human wisdom. Faith along with hard work restores many human lives and is also source of encouragement for individuals toward human betterment and growth.

"this that" don't suit together.It would be better if you omit "this".

because of=For me "Due to" will be more appropriate.

Faith on God=Faith in God nae ho ga?

It was really very good attempt.ap ne "koozay mein darya" band ker dia

Keep it up.

Original Passage: (369 words)

England has won the Jules Rimet trophy—the symbol of world supremacy—after a thrilling final requiring extra time to decide the winner; it had not only the entire England and German road deserted but also kept 400 million television viewers on tenterhooks (to keep someone in suspense). In these days of charged (thrilling, electric) political atmosphere it is but natural for a country’s victory to be tarnished by charges of favouritism, unfair play and biased refereeing. England as the host faced most of these charges. England’s victory ever Argentina in the quarter-finals brought about a near revolt in the FIFA and irked the Latin American countries who felt that Europe had combined and loaded the dice against them. Perhaps never before were there so many shocks in a World cup as came this year. It started with the theft of the gold trophy and its strange recovery by a dog. No Englishmen will steal it now for the cup is proudly and rightfully won. Again the short odd favourites such as Brazil were literally booted out in the pre-quarter final stages as was another favoured football nation, Italy. The tiny North Koreans provided the greatest shock first by reaching the last eight and then by snatching an amazing three-goal lead from Portugal. The Koreans did prove that Asians, too, can play good football. Portugal produced ‘black panther’ Eusebio whose amazing score of goals rocked the world and knocked ‘black pearl’ Pele out of the “World’s Best Forward” citadel. The matches also produced rough play and a very large number of players were sent off the field and later suspended for ungamely play. England owed its success largely to good, efficient and combined efforts and a fine team spirit under the dictatorial guidance of the team manager, General Alf Ramsey who had predicted all along that England would win. The Victory has put England on top of the football world and it is perhaps only just, for it was England who gave the world this great and most popular game. And, in crisis-ridden England this is perhaps the happiest news for Prime Minister Harold Wilson who dashed back from Canada for the final. It may well prove to be a rallying point for the jittery pound.

PRECIS:

England has won the Jules Rimet Trophy by defeating Germany in the finals. The match kept the people in suspense till the last moment and left all the streets in England and Germany bare. It has been the most eventful World cup so far which started with the stealing of the trophy and its surprising retrieval by a dog, then England’s win over Argentina in the quarter finals brought many allegations of partiality, bias and fraudulence of referees which annoyed Latin American teams and caused rift in FIFA, then Italy’s victory over one of the favourites Brazil in the quarter-finals, North Koreans reached in the quarters by beating Portugal with shocking performance proving that Asians could also play football. Besides all this, many players were also suspended owing to foul play during matches. Finally, England emerged as a victor for its well-organised and untiring efforts under the competent guidance of team manger General Alf Ramsay. Their Prime Minister Wilson flew back from Canada to witness the final. The victory may avert the economic crisis, and save the pound from devaluation.

Heading: England's Victory

Heading: England's Victory
If you add "Very last moment",it will be more appropriate.

Bare= Deserted isn't better? I mean "for streets"

England's win=I don't know if it's the right word.I never heard.England's victory?

Partiality,Bias=Both have same meaning so one word should be omitted as you know it's all about conveying meaning in few words.

Then Italy's.......=This sentence and the next one,both doesn't seem connected.It seems as you jumped to next line.Kindly connect them either by omitting "comma" or by putting a "full stop"

all this=additional words;Besides is enough.

well organised and untiring efforts=England emerged as a victor.It's very clear so I don't think why how should be added or one of these words will be enough as the next words explain well "under the "competent" guidance of..." It clears everything.


Excellent attempt.Let me tell you,I have least interest in matches stuff so may be I didn't evaluate well.

Keep it up
