QID : 366 - Read the given passage carefully and select the best answer to each question out of the four given alternatives. We live in a world where we are surrounded by constantly streaming images and voices of negative and rarely positive incidents. The constantly changing reality around us- the political scenario, the economic reforms, the communal tension, the climatic change, apart from personal setbacks and tragedies creates a depressing atmosphere and thus we are unable to remain in a happy and cheerful mood. Now, the question arises what exactly is happiness? To some, happiness is the state of mind where person is fully satisfied with respect to his needs and desires. While to some others, happiness is when the things are happening according to their whims. Thus, they depend upon circumstances which will make them happy or sad. For instance, the new car, the diamond ring or cute outfit makes a person happy. Indeed, it will be short-lived and will leave him longing for the next high. As of now the new car’s colour fades, the diamond collects dust, the outfits become outdated, the happiness is lost. After then, the new desires crop up and as we all know that a person's desires are unlimited and rarely all the desires are fulfilled, thus making a person distressed as and when any of the desire is not fulfilled. This emphasizes upon the fact that fulfilment of a person's desires decide the person's happiness.

QID : 371 - Read the given passage carefully and select the best answer to each question out of the four given alternatives. Born in Prague in 1883 to a Jewish father who excelled in business, Franz Kafka, along with his three sisters, had a comfortable childhood. He earned a doctorate of law degree by the time he was twenty-three and began working for a government agency, where he distinguished himself by publishing reports about worker safety that appeared in professional journals. He retired as Senior Secretary and was awarded a medal of honor for his contribution to the establishment and management of hospitals and rest homes. To his friends, Kafka was warm and charming. He had several girlfriends and two serious relationships, but he never married. Instead, Kafka devoted his life to writing, publishing his first story in 1909. He was well known among the small literary circles of Prague, and he often read his stories out loud to groups of friends. Kafka continued writing until his death at forty-one from tuberculosis in 1924, correcting the final proofs of the story "A Hunger Artist" while on his deathbed. In the world of literature, Kafka holds a coveted distinction. Like William Shakespeare and George Orwell, he is one of the few authors whose name has become an integral part of the vocabulary used to characterize not only other literature but also the workings of the world around him. The term "Kafkaesque" has come to describe a nightmarish atmosphere resulting from pervasive, sinister, impersonal forces; feelings of guilt, fear, and loss of identity; and the sense of evil that permeates the logic of ruling powers.

When did Kafka earned his doctorate?
 
Options:
1) By the time he was twenty-three.
2) When he started working in a Government Agency.
3) When he started reading stories.
4) When he excelled in business. 
Correct Answer: By the time he was twenty-three.

QID : 376 - Read the given passage carefully and select the best answer to each question out of the four given alternatives. Kate Chopin was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1850, one of the five children but the only one to live through her twenties. Her father, Thomas O’Flaherty died when she was five, and she spent her childhood among women: her mother, Eliza; grandmother; great-grandmother; and the nuns who ran her school. In 1870, Chopin married Oscar Chopin and moved with him to New Orleans, where they had six children.Chopin was an independent spirit who smoked cigarettes, walked alone through the city, and argued passionately with others about politics and social problems, much to the dismay of the other New Orleans housewives in her social circle. Not long after the family moved to Cloutierville, Louisiana, Oscar died unexpectedly. Chopin mourned his death deeply but eventually embraced her independence, even going so far as to having an affair with a married man. Chopin soon returned to St. Louis, where she would spend the rest of her life.She published her first novel, At Fault, in 1890, when she was forty.

"The Story of an Hour" was published in 1894 and, along with "The Storm" (1898), is among Chopin’s most famous stories. Although Chopin’s female protagonists act in unconventional, even scandalous ways, readers accepted this as a simply part of the storytelling and didn’t suspect Chopin of moralizing or trying to insert her personal opinions into her work.
