Q N0.8: Make a précis of the following passage and suggest a suitable title. ( 25 Marks)

The history of media in Pakistan shows that Pakistani print media came into existence with the mission to promulgate the ideology of Pakistan, which was seen as the best option for the Muslim minority in British India and as a form of self-defense against suppression from the Hindu majority. However, over the last decade, Pakistan's media has developed into harsh terrain which has certainly helped shape Pakistan's view towards domestic and foreign policy for better or for worse. Society and institutions in Pakistan tend to be rule-oriented. Social media has changed the dynamics of the Pakistani society with strong influence. Social media has become a driving force to mobilize people for collective action, social movements and even protests. When there is any injustice or incident that demands public demonstration, social media plays a key role in pushing them forward. Today one can easily engage people from diverse background simultaneously for a common agenda as it ties them up even if they are far across. as elsewhere, social media has become an important factor in Pakistan's domestic politics. Some believe that social media networking technologies, which offer an alternative to Pakistan's corrupt and state-controlled media, have the potential to transform Pakistani politics. In recent years, a growing number of Pakistanis have come to believe in the revolutionary potential of new technologies, particularly in the political context.

Q N0.9:. Translate the following passage into English ( 10 Marks)

عصرحاضرعلمی ترقی کی انتہاوں کوچھورہا ہے- ترقی یافتہ اقوام کا طرہ امتیاز اعلی تعلیمی معیارہے- اس مقصد کے حصول میں نصاب اور درسی کتب کو بنیادی اہمیت حاصل ہے- جن کو جدید تقاضوں سے ہم آہنگ کرنا حکومت کا تعلیمی میدان کو فوقیت دینا ثابت کرتا ہے- زندگی کے اعلی معیار کے حصول میں علمی ترقی اور اعلی معیار بنیاد کا درجہ رکھتے ہیں - حکومت اس معیار کی فراہمی کے لۓ مقدور بھر کوششیں کر رہی ہے - دعا ہے کہ نسل نو جدید تعلیمی تقاضوں کو مد نظر رکھ کر پاکستان کی تعمیر و ترقی میں بھر پور کردار ادا کرے -
To succeed,look at things not as they are,but as they can be.:)
