10th June 2015 Max Marks 100
10: 00 am to 1: 00 pm

Note: Attempt all questions, all questions carry equal marks.
Question No:
01 Write an organized essay on any one of the following: 20
(i) A civil servant is a public servant
(ii) Education is the only panacea to all social evils present in the society today. Discuss
(iii) Black money
(iv) Computer, its uses and abuses

02 Make a précis of the following passage and give its appropriate heading: 20

If by some magic you could be granted one quick wish, perhaps you might wish to be popular being popular means being liked by a lot of people instead of just a few close friends and that is a big wish. All the same you too can be well liked if you are willing to be on guard against perils of popularity. Let us consider some of these, you cannot be polite and friendly to some and to others without word getting around as to what kind of person you really are, when you are considering other people take time to be friendly with the folks older than you are, your neighbors , teachers, parents and other relatives. If you treat them with respect, they are going to think of you as likable person not as a good for nothing boy. And do not forget to be kind to the little kids too. Again you must think of others and consider their wishes. A majority wins, you know, and if you are out voted in the discussion of what to do and where to go, remember that being a good sport is another way to help your popularity. A good lover does not complain, when the plans do not go this way. At the same time do not be afraid that you are risking your popularity to stand up for what you think is right. It takes courage to say so and is appreciated.
