Q-1 Read the following passage carefully and answers the questions given below it:-

Punctuality is a necessary habit in all public affairs of a civilized society without it nothing could ever be brought to a conclusion. Everything would be in a state of chaos. Only in a sparsely populated rural community it is possible to disregard it. In ordinary living there can be some tolerance of unpunctuality. The in intellectual who is working on some difficult problem has everything co-ordinated and organized for the matter in hand. He is therefore, forgiven, if late for the dinner party. It is hard for energetic quick minded people to, waste time so they are often tempted to finish a job before setting out to keep an appointment. If no accidents occur on the way, like punctured tyres, diversion of traffic and sudden descent of fog, they will be on time. They are often more industrious useful citizens than those who are never late. The over punctual can as much be a trial to others as the unpunctual . The guest who arrives half an hour too soon is the greatest nuisance. Some friends of my family had this irritating habit. The only thing to do was to ask them to come half an hour later than the other guest. Then they arrived just when we wanted them. If you are catching a train it is always better to be comfortably early, than even a fraction of a minute too late.

Q-2 Games and sports are an important part of education. They help in the development of the physique and mind of the student. A sound body possesses a sound mind. If we are weak and sick, we can not have a fertile brain. Games and sports keep us healthy. They keep us active and make us smart. Mere bookish Knowledge would not lead to be blended in a suitable proportion so that the students can have the best of them. They should not only develop the mind but also the body. Both are essential for a wholesome personality. Games and sports do not merely keep us healthy and physically fit, they also include in young people the duty of loyalty. The first and foremost thing that games teach us is to take victory and defeat a like. The players ought not to differentiate between one another on the basis of nationality, caste, creed or color.
