@ Sarfraz
one should avoid naming someone in examples?
There are 2 things in that. Some refrences from established history are very useful. But from current scenario an unproven or controversial fact/reference must be avoided.

WHAT IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHIDREN'S FEAR AND HUMAN BEINGS FEAR ?

Some wrote no difference and some wrote children's fear is due to real time events and human being fear due to hypothetical events. Second answer is totally out of scope of passage. My answer is bit different.

"THERE IS DIFFERENCE OF REASON. Human being fear is due to stories of death and children's fear is due to stories of thieves and ghosts"

i don't remember the exact answer. But crux were same. Please comment.

surely there is a difference between human being's fear and children's fear.children are psychologically, mentally and physically inexperienced and immature as compared to human beings who are more experienced and mature. generally human beings are not feared by darkness or ghosts/thieves ecause they have grown more practical and they know such things rarely happen in reality. but they do fear death because death is as real as life.

i think that explains your query.

Idioms of Exploring the world of english and Past papers idioms at least of 20 years are more than enough. As for as Idioms of 2012 is concern, though most it wasn't from above mention sources, but one could easily make out there meaning and make appropriate sentences.

I will advise u that dont bother about Idioms, as they only account for 5 marks, rather concentrate on Precise, Expansion, Comprehension, Direct indirect and sentence correction.

Default Solved paper css 2012 english (precis & composition)

SOLVED PAPER CSS 2012 ENGLISH (PRECIS & COMPOSITION)



THE SIGNIFICANCE OF POPULATION IN A SOCIETY


Ignoring population question is a deplorable symptom of lack of honesty in sociology. Obviously in the absence of natural checks, state alone can check the growth of population. As an increase in population affects the standard of living, the sensible rich will practise birth-control whereas the foolish and immoral poor continue increasing burden on natural resources. The politicians, the army and the revolutionists are against population-control as they want more and more rural votes, fighters and rebels respectively to serve their interests. Against population-control, they use a semi-religious bias that unchecked procreation is man's natural right. In this regard the socialists have a mistaken view as it is not hopelessness but a revolutionary fervour which is the force behind revolutions. [128]

Question. 3 (Question & Answer)

Q.1 What is the difference between human being's fear of death and children's fear of darkness.?
Ans : Human beings fear of death increases when they hear or read stories which tell of the pain that a man feels when he is on the point of death . Children's fear of darkness increases when they hear stories involving supernatural beings or criminals.

Q.2 What is a religious and sacred view of death?

Ans. Religious-minded persons believe in divine retribution. They think that death is a kind of punishment for the sins they have committed. They also consider death as a means to enter the hereafter. This is the religious and sacred view of death.

Q.3 What are the painful experiences described by the Monks in their books?

Ans: According to a religious belief, inflicting pain on oneself is a means of self-purification. Monks have described in books, those horrible ways in which they have been torturing themselves. The description of these painful, self-inflicted experiences create in the readers a dread for death.

Q.4 What are the views of Seneca about death?
Ans: According to Seneca, a Roman philosopher, the circumstances which cause death, and various customs and rites observed with regard to the dead man, are so frightening that they create a fear of death in the minds of the on-lookers.

Q:5 What are the facts that make death appear more horrible than it may really be?

Ans: The groans of a dying man, convulsions of his body, his pale and hopeless face, mourning clothes of the relatives and friends of the deceased person, the sombre rituals, all these facts make death appear much more horrible than it really is.

Q.(4) Cut your Coat according to your Cloth
A wise man lives within his means. He makes use of available resources or prevailing conditions to the best of his ability. It is only the shallow and pretentious people who live beyond their means. They put on airs to create a public image. Such people make themselves objects of ridicule. People laugh behind their back. Nobody is easily fooled by such false postures. Besides, if one lives beyond one's means, one never has anything to fall back upon on a rainy day. It is only during such adverse circumstances that one realizes the folly of showing off for effect. On the contrary, a man with some common sense never tries to create false impressions. He makes the best use of available means and also takes care to provide for any unforeseen event. True wisdom lies in living within one's means. He who cuts his coat according to his cloth, is certainly a practical man. This proverbial saying has a great truth in it. It teaches us a lesson. Basically ours is a class society. There are a number of meaningless customs and false values which we have adopted from the Hindus. To act on these customs, one needs a lot of money. The poor people of our society can't afford to spend money on them. But they borrow money or sell their land or other property. This further plunges them in poverty. As a result, their life is ruined. Hence the adage: “cut your coat according to your cloth,” is a practical piece of advice.


Question. 5 (Idioms)

Wool-gathering: absent-minded dreaming.
Usage:-Be practical and give up your habit of wool-gathering.
Under the harrow: In a difficult situation because of one's own blunder.
Usage:-I asked him not to resign and now he is under the harrow.
A gold digger: A woman who treats a man chiefly as a source of
material gain.
Usage:- His new lady-secretary is a gold-digger.
On the thin ice: To be in a delicate, difficult or potentially
embarrassing situation.
Usage:- He finds himself on the thin ice because of his careless attitude.
Cold comfort: Little if any comfort
Usage:- His small pension is just a cold comfort.
A queer fish: A person of odd habits.
Usage: My father-in-law is a queer fish.
At an unearthly hour: At a very odd time.
Usage: It is midnight; what brings you here at an unearthly hour?

1. A ten-foot long snake made people run here and there.
2. We are going to the concert and so are they.
3. Enclosed with this letter were a signed affidavit and a carbon copy of his request to our main office.
4. Fear God.
5. Pakistan has supported and will support the Kashmiris.
6. He came yesterday.
7. Arshad's downfall was because of nothing else other than pride.
8. Do not avoid consulting a doctor.
