At the new place, it had roots and grew successfully. The process of transplantation was a grand success.

Context: This sentence is taken from the essay “In Celebration of Being Alive” written by Dr. Christian Barnard. When the writer thought about the suffering prevailing in the world, he remembered an accident in his life. He described the accident in the essay.

Whatever is to be given by God, is given. He has a plan for Milton and that will be adopted. Whether the development is slow or fast it is to be accepted by the individual. So, the poet has to wait upon God and get his lot.

III. Answer ANY TWO of the following questions in about 10-15 lines each questions : (2 × 4 = 8)

Question 1.
What according to Bacon is the theme of ’Of Studies’?
Francis Bacon was a great english essayist. ‘Of Studies’ is an interesting essay depicting the benefits and disadvantages of studies. Reading books gives us happiness. It helps us to become more intelligent in communication. Natural abilities can be developed by reading books. Sometimes it becomes harmful if too-much time is spent on it. Showy tendency should be avoided. There are books to be skipped through, books to be read completely and some others to be read with great care and to be digested. Through studies an individual becomes a full man. The author tells that the study of different subjects helps us to cure the weaknesses of the mind.

Question 2.
How can the miseries of the world becured, according to Swami Vivekananda ?
Swami Vivekananda was a great thinker and an orator. He became the disciple of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. He said “Work is Worship”. According to Vivekananda the secret of work in this world is non-attachment. Because of ignorance, many problems have been growing. Continuous work helps us to get good results. All the miseries of the world will be cured, if there is purity in the minds of people. Good nature of the mind should come out and the bad nature has to be destroyed. Thus character is the result of good work. A person with character can change the miseries of the world. This is the secret of work.

Question 3.
How did J.C. Bose record the heartbeats of a plant ?
Aldous Huxley was an English Writer. He wrote a number of books. ‘J.C.Bose’ is an essay taken from the book “Testing Pilate”. It is about the experimenting on Science and Technology. When the author visited the institute of Bose in Calcutta,, he was shown how the heart beats of a plant were recorded. Heart beats of a plant occur under the . outer rind of the stem. They are magnified millions of times and recorded on the smoked glass. With the help of the most powerful microscope they can be seen. A grain of caffeine or camphor affects the plant’s heart and the graph has a change. If poison is applied, the heart beat becomes more rapid. The death agony can be seen on the screen through the graph. The graph flattens when the plant is dead. There are no ups and downs on the graph. The irregular lines on the graph show the death agony.

Question 4.
What were the views of Dr. Barmard’s father about suffering ? In what way did Barmard’s views differ from his father’s ?
Dr. Christian Barnard was a great surgeon and a writer. He wrote the essay “In Celebration of Being Alive” giving his experiences at the time of an accident. When Barnard and his wife were caught in the accident, he thought that it was an injustice over him. He recollected his father’s words that God would test people with suffering. When there was the test, the character of an individual would be refined. But Barnard cquld not accept. Later when he looked to two small boys, who started and drove the breakfast trolly, he knew that one has to bear the difficulties and live. He should learn how to live accepting the will of God.
The two boys, one with blindness and other with a hole in the heart, lived comfortably at their level. Though the views of the writer differed from those of his father, finally the art of living should be adopted.

IV. Answer ANY TWO of the following questions in about 10-15 lines each. (2 × 4 = 8)

Question 1.
Time and Tide wait for no man’ is an old saying. Discuss this in the context of the poem “On His Having Arrived at the Age of Twenty Three”.
John Milton was an epic poet. He writes in a grand style. “On His Having Arrived at the Age of Twenty Three” is a sonnet, written by this poet. Here the saying of “Time and Tide wait for no man’ is suitable to be discussed. It is a fact that the tides in the sea move on to the shores at a high speed and they cannot be stopped by anything. Similarly time doesnot stay or stop at any place. It is a natural pheno¬mena. The consumption of time is a continuous process. Milton looks to himself and wonders how his years have passed away. He cannot find a reason in the beginning. So he complains against God. But after introspection, he finds a solace. He thinks that time does not wait for him or for his maturity. Thus the saying can be applied to the views of John Milton.

Question 2.
Why does Wordsworth consider nature to be a good teacher ?
‘The Tables Turned’ is a famous poem written by William Wordsworth. He was a romantic poet and his love towards nature is of great value. The poet believes that nature is the main source for education. From books, we learn only a little but nature gives us complete knowledge. The beautiful scenery, the lustrous plants and trees, the birds and all that is there give us complete knowledge of the creation. The birds do not read books but they know the secrets of this world. For research, we dissect and kill certain creatures. But if we have an affectionate heart, we can acquire a lot of knowledge from the nature. So, the poet thinks that the nature is a good teacher.

Question 3.
The poem ‘Any woman’ is a celebration of the glory of womanhood. Illustrate.
The poem “Any Woman” was written by Katharine Tynan, a British writer. She produced a number of novels and poems and became a noted writer. Any. woman is a poem depicting the supremacy of a woman in the family. She loves her children and guards them carefully. Without a woman, there is no house of recognition. A mother takes care of the children providing food and shelter. She keeps the house neat and tidy. She protects them at the time of danger. If the mother leaves a child, he will be spoiled. She is like a pillar in the house and keeps the house graceful. A good woman brings respect to the family.

Question 4.
What is the theme of the poem “A challenge to Fate” ? What is the life lesson we can learn from the poem ?
A challenge to Fate’ is an interesting poem written by Sarojini Naidu. She was a great poet and an Orator. She was called the ‘Nightingale of India’. The poem is a celebration of the writer’s courage to challenge ‘Fate’. Everybody is afraid of Fate. It leads the individual into a pitiable condition. But the writer does not hesitate to describe the events of happiness. The natural beauty around, the melodious music of the birds and creatures, the sweet memories of life can be taken away by Fate. The power of Oratory and the courage may be subdued by Fate. But all the trials of Fate, shall become void. She will not come under Fate’s spell. One has to know that whatever problems crop up, in our way of progress, we have to attack them and move forward.

V. Answer ANY ONE of the following questions in about 25 lines : (1 × 8 = 8)

Question 1.
Write a character sketch of’Tom Sawyer’.
Tom Sawyer was the young hero in the novel ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” written by Mark Twaim, an American writer. Tom was a boy of a tender age. He was a misfit in the school. His behaviour with Becky Thatcher is interesting because he had a liking for her. He expressed it boldy. He was equally like by the girl. TOm had another friend, Huck- leberry Finn, who was emtidy, and spent his time fishing and swimming. Tom liked this boy because he wanted to have adven¬tures in life.

Tom went to the graveyard one day along with Huck, to see the ghosts. It was a mysterious experience for him. The three men who came there to rob a dead body quarrelled among themselves. One of them, a doctor was killed by Injun Joe. Tom was frightened to watch Injun killing the doctor. Tom had a liking to wander and his stay at Jackson’s island, was wonderful.

The parents arranged a funeral, thinking that Tom and Huck were dead, which indeed created a humorous occasion for Tom’s jolly mind. Tom’s presence at the church created a hilarious situation. Tom’s determination to save Muff Potter and his brave witness at the court, adds to his virtuous behaviour. His relationship with Becky Thatcher was very much appreciative.

Tom wanted to save Widow Bougals. His determination to punish Injun Joe and his pursuasion in the search of the treasure in the cave, were note worthy. Tom got the treasure and changed Huck, the dirty, lazy and unworthy boy to a neat and tidy boy. Thus Tom was typical of the days of Mark Twainer in America.

Question 2.
What are the turning points in the story ? Discuss the main events in the plot.
Mark Twain, wrote the novel “The adventures of Tom Sawyer”. The story of Tom Sawyer is narrated by the writer, with interesting turning points at different places. The story moves round the tender boy Tom Sawyer. He was being brought up by Aunt Polly. At the school, there was an interesting episode. He got punishment but he drew a beautiful picture. He showed love towards Becky, a girl in the class. There is a turning point at the graveyard. The murder of the doctor, by Injun Joe, created frustration in the minds of Tom and Huck. It continued throughout the story until the person died in the cave.

There is an important point, when they attended the funeral function. It adds to the humour of the novel. Muff Potter was jailed but Tom gave witness before the judge and he was set free. Becky’s parents arranged a picnic. Tom and Becky were caught in the cave but were saved. The judge arranged an iron door. This door became the cause for the death of the villain Injun Joe at the end. Huck was adopted by Widow Dougals. He became a person with culture.

Afterwards Tom wanted to form a pirate gang and Huck would become the bold pirate. Thus, there are some turning points which make the story interesting.

Question 3.
Give a character analysis of Huckleberry Finn.
Huckleberry Finn is an important character along with Tom Sawyer. Though Tom happens to be the prominent and dynamic character, its role become complete with the help of this character.

Huck was an outcast, without a house to live in. He had his father but he was a drunkard without paying any interest at the life of Huck. Huck became a friend to Tom because he seemed to be adven¬turous. Huck could attract Tom with his strange descriptions and Oaths. When Tom wanted to go to as a pirate, Huck accompanied him. When they attended the funeral mourning of themselves, Huck’s behaviour was acceptable to Tom.

When there was the search for the hidden treasure, Huck helped Tom. Huck was daring enough to pursue things lonely. Huck knew the plan of Injun and his companion, to kill Widow Dougals. He did not hesitate to interfere in the matter. Moreover he took the help of Mr. Welsh. Thus his role becomes important at the right time. Huck is untidy in the beginning but became civilised in course of time. He could not enter into anybody’s house in the beginning, but became an important figure, when he saved the life of Widow Dougals. The character of Huck supplements the character of Tom. The novelist showed his skill in carving the characters, in the novel, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”.

Other instruments are made of brass, the trumpet and the horn, for example. There are also various other wind instruments like such as the mouth organ and the bagpipes.

Some instruments are played by banging or striking them. One obvious example is the drum, of which there are various kinds. Instruments like this are called percussion instruments.
