Comprehension:
Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow.

Renia's Diary: A Young Girl's Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust, is being published in the United States on September 17. After being lost for decades, the writings of Holocaust victim Renia Spiegel have been finding new admirers. The 18-year old Spiegel was murdered by the Nazis in 1942, but the rediscovery of her poetry-rich diary has some people referring to her as “Poland’s Anne Frank. ”Spiegel’s diary will soon be published in English for the first time, along with the release of a documentary film based on her life. Although the diary was already published in Poland, something of a mystery still hovers over the Jewish teen, whose name does not appear on Holocaust victim lists in Poland or Israel. Born in 1924, Spiegel grew up on her father’s estate near Poland’s border with Romania. Her younger sister, Ariana, was a child film star and the sisters lived with their grandparents in sleepy Przemyśl, a border town along the San River. When she began keeping her diary at the end of 1939, Spiegel explained, “I simply seek a friend.” Her first entry resembles Anne Frank’s initial essays, offering a candid account of her loneliness. Also quite similar to early entries in “The Diary of a Young Girl,” Spiegel includes biting commentary on her classmates. Alongside an active social life and her writing, Spiegel dabbled in illustrating. A few months before Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland, she fell in love with a student named Zygmunt Schwarzer, whose father was a well-known physician. Torture and degradation on the streets took place daily during those years and Spiegel wrote in the spring of 1942, “Oh God Almighty! Help us! Take care of us, give us your blessing.” On July 15, the Nazis established a ghetto in Przemysl. Before long, 24,000 Jews from the region were crammed into a small part of town. “Remember this day; remember it well, you will tell generations to come about it one day,” wrote Spiegel after the ghetto was fenced off. A few days later, on July 30, Spiegel was captured along with Schwarzer’s parents and shot. “Three shots! Three lives lost! It happened last night at 10:30pm. Fate has decided to take my dearest ones away from me,” wrote her friend Schwarzer. He did not write these words in his own journal, but in Spiegel’s yellow-paged diary, which had been entrusted to him a few days prior.

Q12. The name of Renia’s book is

a. Renia’s Diary
b. Poland’s Anne Frank
c. The Diary of a Young Girl
d. Renia's Diary: A Young Girl's Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust

SSC PHASE VII 2019 EXAM PAPER : Held on 14 October-2019 Shift-2

:: English Language Basic Knowledge ::

Q1. Identify the word that is misspelt.

a. Reality
b. Multiple
c. Speciality
d. Acomodate

Comprehension:
Read the passage and answer the questions given below it.

We are all aware of the danger posed to our lives by pollution. The evidence on pollution’s danger is powerful. It is linked not just to breathing problems but also to increased rates of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, dementia, premature birth and much more. Those who live with polluted air are more likely to die prematurely.
It is especially important to protect those most vulnerable to dirty air’s effects - children, older people and those with heart or lung conditions.
Here are some things we can do to help protect ourselves and our family.
One can begin by choosing one’s route wisely. There are variations in pollution levels, within the same city - even the same neighborhood. It has been found that individuals take in different amounts of toxic air, depending on exactly where they live, and where their routines take them.
This insight can help us to limit the pollution we are exposed to. When walking, running or biking, “the things you can very are, where do you go and when do you go, “said Darby Jack, Associate Professor of Environment Health at Columbia University. By doing these two things we can bring about a reduction in exposure to pollution. Limiting exposure is particularly important during exercise, when we take in more air.
Thus staying clear of the busiest roads, even just by choosing a parallel route a block away, can halve the pollution one breathe in.
Route choice is as important for drivers as for pedestrians, since exhaust fumes can become even more concentrated inside a car.
Being careful about the time of day one travels can also be very helpful in protecting oneself against pollution. It has been founded that travelling at less polluted times helps greatly because rush hours, as we all know, generally bring pollution peaks.
“It’s basically about awareness,” said frank kelly, director of the Environment Research Group at King’s College, London. “You need to understand where you are being exposed the most, and then you need to be able to take measures to avoid that.''

Q2. Select the correct option.
Air pollution is especially dangerous for

a. Pedestrians, cyclists and bus drivers.
b. Elderly, children and people with lung problems?
c. Men and women above fifty
d. Doctors who deal with respiratory diseases
