Question#1:-Read the text carefully and answer the questions given at the end of the passage.

THUNDER. THE THREE WITCHES ENTER, MEETING HECATE.

FIRST WITCH
What’s wrong, Hecate? You look angry.

HECATE
Don’t I have a reason to be angry, you disobedient hags? How dare you give Macbeth riddles and prophecies about his future without telling me? I am your boss and the source of your powers. I am the one who secretly decides what evil things happen, but you never called me to join in and show off my own powers. And what’s worse, you’ve done all this for a man who behaves like a spoiled brat, angry and hateful. Like all spoiled sons, he chases after what he wants and doesn’t care about you. But you can make it up to me. Go away now and in the morning meet me in the pit by the river in hell. Macbeth will go there to learn his destiny. You bring your cauldrons, your spells, your charms, and everything else. I’m about to fly away. I’ll spend tonight working to make something horrible happen. I have a lot to do before noon. An important droplet is hanging from the corner of the moon. I’ll catch it before it falls to the ground. When I work it over with magic spells, the drop will produce magical spirits that will trick Macbeth with illusions.
He will be fooled into thinking he is greater than fate, he will mock death, and he will think he is above wisdom, grace, and fear. As you all know, overconfidence is man’s greatest enemy.

MUSIC PLAYS OFFSTAGE, AND VOICES SING A SONG WITH THE WORDS “COME AWAY, COME AWAY.”

Listen! I’m being called. Look, my little spirit is sitting in a foggy cloud waiting for me.

Q2. Recall your knowledge of writing paragraphs and inferring a text. Read the given passages and poetic stanzas carefully and answer the questions that follow them.
 
 
1. The Road is one of the great fundamental institutions of mankind. Not only is the Road one of the great human institutions because it is fundamental to social existence, but also because it’s varied effects appear in every department of the State. It is the Road which determines the sites of many cities and the growth and nourishment of all. It is the Road which controls the development of strategies and fixes the sites of battles. It is the Road that gives its framework to all economic development. It is the Road which is the channel of all trade, and, what is more important, of all ideas. In its most humble function it is a necessary guide without which progress from place to place would be a ceaseless experiment; it is a sustenance without which organized society would be impossible, thus the Road moves and controls all history.

2. Black-marketing is another curse. Well, I know that black-marketers are frequently caught and punished. According to our judicial notions sentences are passed, and sometimes fines only are imposed. Now you have to tackle this monster which today is a colossal crime against society, in our distressed conditions, when we constantly face shortage of food and or the essential commodities of life. A citizen who does black-marketing commits, I think, a greater crime than the biggest and most grievous of crimes. These blackmarketers are really knowing, intelligent and ordinarily responsible people, and when they indulge in black-marketing, I think they ought to be very severely punished, because they undermine the entire system of control and regulation of food-stuffs and essential commodities, and cause wholesale starvation and want and even death.

2. Which of the following statements suggest the best way to control black marketing?

      Transparency should be introduced in financial transactions.
      Small fines should be imposed on black-marketers.

Black-marketers ought to be severely punished. 

          None of these

3. When I have fears that I may cease to be    Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain,
Before high-pil├Ęd books, in charactery,
   Hold like rich garners the full ripened grain;
When I behold, upon the night’s starred face,


3. What does the poet fear in the first stanza of the poem?

      Fear of becoming famous
 
Fear of death
      Fear of writing poetry
      None of these
       

4.         Without education it is complete darkness and with education it is light. Education is a matter of life and death to our nation. The world is moving so fast that if you do not educate yourselves you will be not only completely left behind, but will be finished up. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) had enjoined his followers to go even to China in the pursuit of knowledge. If that was the commandment in those days when communications were difficult, then, truly, Muslims as the true followers of the glorious heritage of Islam, should surely utilize all available opportunities. No sacrifice of time or personal comfort should be regarded too great for the advancement of the cause of education.

4. Which one of the following statements highlights the main idea of the above mentioned paragraph?

       Education is a matter of life and death to our nation.  
       Without education it is complete darkness and with education it is light.
       The world is moving so fast that if you do not educate yourselves you will be not only completely left behind.

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) had enjoined his followers to go even to China in the pursuit of knowledge.



5. I was angry with my friend;  
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe: 
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

Night & morning with my tears:  And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles. 
 


5. In the above lines, the speaker watered:
      Fear
      Love
      Anger

          Wrath
