SmartSkillsSanskritiSchoolREADINGI.Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:1. It is rare to find someone with good technical and communication skills. You can get far ahead ofyour colleagues if you combine the two early in your career. People will judge, evaluate, promoteor block you based on your communication skills. Since habits form by repeating both good andbad forms of communication, learn to observe great, communicators and adopt their styles andtraits – in written and verbal forms. The art of listening and learning from each and everyinteraction, is another secret recipe. Develop the subconscious habit of listening to yourself as youspeak and know when to pause.2. Learning what not to say is probably more important than learning what to say. As your careerdevelops, you will realise that the wise speak less. Speak when you have value to add, else refrain.Poorly constructed emails with grammatical errors are acceptable between friends, but theyshould be seriously avoided while communicating formally with your seniors. Avoid anycommunication in an emotional state when you might say things you will regret later. Oneunnecessary word uttered at the wrong time or place can ruin a relationship, career or even yourlife. Such is the power of words. If such a thing happens, you should immediately apologise, elseit may haunt you for life.3. Another problem to overcome is speaking too fast. Since our minds are working faster than ourspeech, we are inclined to speak fast. This does not necessarily mean that the person hearing itwill get it any faster. On the contrary, it is always the reverse. So slow down, and think beforeyou speak. ―When I get ready to speak to people.‖ Abraham Lincoln said, ―I spend two-thirds ofthe time thinking what they want to hear and one-third thinking what I want to say.‖ Addinghumour and wit is also essential. But realise that no all jokes are funny and observe certainboundaries. Never say anything that could offend. Remember you are not a comedian who mustoffend as many people as you can to be witty.On the basis of your reading of the above passage answer the following questions briefly:Q.1Why is it necessary to have good communication skills?Q.2How can communication skills be developed?Q.3What according to the writer, should be avoided while communicating?Q.4Why should you be careful when you tend to be humorous?Choose the most appropriate meanings of the given words from the options provided:Page 10 Class IX ENGLISH

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :Chess is called the game of kings. It has been around for a long time. People have been playing itfor over 500 years. The chess we play today is from Europe. Chess is a two - player game. Oneplayer uses the white pieces. The other uses the black pieces. Each piece moves in a special way.One piece is called the king. Each player has one. The players take turns moving their pieces. Ifa player lands on a piece, he or she takes it. The game ends when a player loses his or her king.There are a few more rules, but these are the basics.Some people think that chess is more than a game. They think that it makes the mind stronger.Good chess players use their brains. They take their time. They think about what will happennext. These skills are useful in life and in chess. Chess is like a workout for the brain.You don't always have lots of time to think when playing chess. There is a type of chess withshort time limits. It's called blitz chess. In blitz chess, each player gets ten minutes to use for thewhole game. Your clock runs during your turn. You hit the time clock after your move. Thisstops your clock. It also starts the other player's clock. If you run out of time, you lose. Games ofblitz chess are fast - paced.Chess is not just for people. Computers have been playing chess since the 1970s. At first they didnot play well. They made mistakes. As time went on they grew stronger. In 1997, a computerbeat the best player in the world for the first time. It was a computer called Deep Blue. Deep Bluewas big. It took up a whole room. By 2006 a cell phone could beat the best players in the world.Chess sure has come a long way. Don't you think so?(a) How does a game of chess end?(b) How is playing chess good for people?(c) How is chess more than a game?(d) How is blitz chess different from regular chess?Page 11 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchool(e) If it's your turn in blitz chess, what happens when you hit the clock?(f) What is the main idea of the fourth paragraph?(g) When did a computer first beat a strong human player in chess?(h) How have computer chess programs changed over time?3. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:Like all bad news and the common cold, allergies can pop up when you least expect them. I‘vebeen there, having suddenly developed an allergy to crocin (paracetamol) some years ago afterhaving had it all my life to treat everything from headaches to fever and toothache. A seafoodloving friend found himself unable to breathe after having Thai food for dinner. A battery ofexpensive tests later, he was told that the tightness was not caused by a heart attack but by anallergy to shellfish something he ate once a week and had never reacted to before.A stuffed or drippy nose, frequent sneezing, an itchy throat, rash, sinus, ear pain, difficulty inbreathing, stomach cramps, and itchy, red or watery eyes are some of the common symptoms ofan allergic reaction. Pollen dust, polluted outdoor air and indoor pollutants such as dust mites,animal dander, cigarette smoke and mould are among the common environmental pollutants,while other triggers include medicines, paints and chemicals in cleaners and cosmetics such ashair color and skin creams. Among foods, eight allergens amount to 90% of food allergies: milk,soy, wheat, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish and shellfish.Most of us wrongly believe that people with allergies are either born with the condition ordevelop identifiable symptoms in early childhood. You couldn‘t be more wrong. An allergy canoccur at any time in your life and experts say its prevalence among adults is rising. While mostpeople who develop allergies as adults have experienced some allergic reaction- either to the sameor an unrelated trigger- before, a few have no history of sensitivity. In an acute immune reaction,the allergy trigger may be one but the symptoms are usually caused by a combination of factors.Stress, a sterile environment that prevents the body from developing a robust natural immunityand lifestyle-induced changes in the body‘s hormonal balance are thought to be some triggers.This is borne out by clinical evidence that shows that women are more likely to develop allergiesat puberty, after pregnancy and at menopause, all of which point to hormonal causes.Page 12 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchoolOf course, avoiding the allergy trigger and taking an anti- allergy as soon as you can afterexposure to an allergen is the best possible protection. Since pollen levels peak in the morning,people with breathing airway sensitivity or asthma should postpone outdoor exercises to later inthe day or stick to exercising indoors as deeper and more rapid breathing induced by aerobicexercise causes more pollen and dust being inhaled which can wreck your airways and lungs.Since air pollutants tend to stick to clothes and hair, changing your clothes and washing your hairbefore going to bed lowers exposure.Allergies in adults can be treated by using anti-allergy medicines. For those who do not respond tostandard treatment, there‘s always the option of a series of allergy shots to help the immunesystem to build up a tolerance to the allergy. In most cases, though identifying and avoiding theallergen is enough to stay free of trouble.Based on your reading of the passage, answer the following questions:1. What are the common symptoms of an allergy?2. What all can trigger an allergy? Mention triggers of all given categories.3. What is an acute immune reaction?4. How can you prevent yourself from getting allergies?Answer the following by choosing the most appropriate option:1. The opposite of ‗expensive’: (para 1)(a)Costly (b) cheap (c) rare (d) less2.What do understand by ‗trigger’ in para 3:(a) Set off (b) set from (c) set to (d) set up3.The word ‗prevalence‘ in para 3 means:(a)Avalanche (b) occurrence (c) unexpected (d) unfulfilling4.The word ‗wreck’ in para 4 means :(a) Save (b) sink (c) ruin (d)rackPage 13 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchool4. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:Yet, the whole incident is ironical. I must thank Mr Tarapore for making me twice as determinedto be a fast bowler. I have never forgotten that taunting tone of his, ‗There are no fast bowlers inIndia. Ha!‘The problem of choosing the right diet was to come up again soon in my life. And how differentlymy family handled it! My first coach , Mr Desh Prem Azad , had come home once and informedmy parents that I had the potential to be a pace bowler and that more care should be paid towardsmy diet. He recommended that I should drink a lot of milk and eat a lot of butter and other dairyproducts in order to gain physical strength. My father went out the next day and bought a buffalo!This was encouragement of the highest order. That buffalo was tied in the courtyard of our timbershop and there was not a day in my early life when an extra glass of milk was not available when Ineeded it. Such a gesture, coming from a man who knew nothing of sports, was indeed touching.The more I think of my father these days the more I admire him and respect him for what he didfor me and how readily he did it. For a reasonably wealthy man, one buffalo might not havemeant much but to take the trouble to go and buy one and ‗park‘ it needed nobility of characterand I am proud to say my father had that quality.My brothers encouraged me a great deal too. They knew what cricket was. Romesh had studiedonly up to Matriculation before joining the family business. He had played some sports in his lifebut his heroes had been wrestlers. I don‘t mean it as a disrespect for him but I mention it only tobring out what Chandigarh was like in those days. It was still only a little more than a village.It was Bhushan who represented the University in football and cricket and, in fact, led the cricketteam too. He believed in giving the ball a whack or two and in our area he was a hero- thebatsman who loved to hit the ball. And I can tell you he was fairly consistent too. He had much todo towards shaping my attitudes towards cricket and particularly towards batting. Bhushan toowent into the family business after getting a degree in law.What I appreciated most in my brothers was the selfless way in which they encouraged me topursue my goals in cricket. They always said to me-‗You go ahead and play as long as you want toand we will look after the family business.‘ That was really nice of them. And we have alwaysbeen a close knit family. After all, to both of them I was not Kapil Dev, the cricket super star butjust Kapil, their kid brother.Based on your reading of the passage, answer the following questions:1. To whom is the author grateful and why?2. What is ironical about the whole incident?3. What influence did Kapil Dev‘s coach have on his diet?Page 14 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchool4. What was the ‗encouragement of the highest order‘?5. What does the author acknowledge about his father‘s character?6. Why does the author say that ‘I don‘t mean it as a disrespect‘ while mentioning that Romeshidolized wrestling?7. What sporting talent did Bhushan have to his credit?8. What does the author appreciate about his brothers?5. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:The habit of reading is one of the greatest resources of mankind; and we enjoy reading books thatbelong to us much more than if they are borrowed. A borrowed book is a guest in the house; it mustbe treated with punctiliousness, with certain considerate formality. You must see that it sustains nodamage; it must not suffer while under your roof. You cannot turn down the pages, you cannot use itfamiliarly. And then, someday, although this is seldom done, you really ought to return it.But your own books belong to you; you treat them with that affectionate intimacy that annihilatesformality. Books are for use, not for show; you should own no book that you afraid to mark up, orafraid to place on the table, wide open, and face down. A good reason for marking favorite passages inbooks is that this practice enables you to remember more easily the significant sayings, to refer to themquickly, and then in later years, it is like visiting a forest where you once blazed a trail. You have thepleasure of going over old ground, and recalling both the intellectual scenery and your own earlierself.Everyone should begin collecting a private library in youth; the instinct of private property, which isfundamental in human beings, can be cultivated with every advantage and no evils. One should haveone‘s own bookshelves, which should not have doors, glass windows, or keys; they should be free andaccessible to the hand as well as to the eye. The best of mural decorations are in books; they are morevaried in colour and appearance than any wallpaper, they are more attractive in design, and they havethe prime advantage of being separate personalities so that if you sit alone in the room containing sixthousand books; and I have a stock answer to the invariable question that comes from strangers.―Have you read all of these books?‖ ―Some of them twice.‖ This reply is both true and unexpected.There are of course no friends like living, breathing, corporeal men and women; my devotion toreading has never made me a recluse. How could it? Books are of the people, by the people, for thepeople. Literature is the immortal part of history; it is the best and more enduring part of personality.But book-friends have this advantage over living friends; you can enjoy the most truly aristocraticPage 15 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchoolsociety in the world whenever you want it. The great dead are beyond our physical reach and thegreat living are usually almost as inaccessible; as for our personal friends and acquaintances, wecannot always see them. Perchance they are asleep, or away on a journey. But in a private library, youcan at any moment converse with Socrates or Shakespeare or Carlyle or Dumas or Dickens or Shaw orBarrie or Galsworthy. And there is no doubt that in these books you see these men at their best. Theywrote for you. They ―laid themselves out‖, they did their ultimately their best to entertain you, tomake a favourable impression. You are necessary to them as an audience to an actor; only instead ofseeing them masked, you look into their innermost heart of hearts.1. On the basis of the reading of the above passage, answer the following questions:(a) Why are borrowed books considered as guests?(b) What are the markings in books compared to?(c) What are the two advantages of a private library?(d) What are the advantages that book-friends have over living friends?(e) Explain the line ‗Laid themselves out. ‘2 Find words in the passage that mean the same as:a)particular about following rules (para 1)b)destroy(para 2)c) basic (para 3)d) lasting (para 4)6. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:We wish to offer today our thanks to the men and women of all races who have striven for India‘sfreedom, the scholars of Europe who restored to us our pride and ancient culture, to the antiquariansand the archaeologists who discovered for us our own ruined cities, to the missionaries of all countrieswho chose the life of poverty in villages and served the poor and the desolate. To all we owe thanks.Page 16 Class IX ENGLISH

SmartSkillsSanskritiSchoolToday, I remember those abroad who were the pioneers of our dream of freedom, men who are exilesif they are alive, forgotten if they are dead, who never sought, nor received recognition nor reward,only privation, persecution and death. But, all these today are immortal in our minds. We thank theEnglishmen who were our friends, though many Englishmen were our enemies, not personal enemiesbut the victims themselves of a system of iniquitous imperialism. But those Englishmen who servedus, became part of our Indian history, part of our struggle for India‘s independence. All of them wethank.The battle of freedom is over. The struggle for peace begins. And my country, my India, that has neverexcluded friend or foe from her hospitality, my India that has taken knowledge from all over theworld, that has offered knowledge and wisdom to the world, once more will she stand in the forefrontof the world civilization, once more will she bring the message of peace, once more will she carry herlamp into the darkness of strife and hatred; and the nations of the world who are free, nations of theworld who are not free, we pledge you our comradeship, our understanding, our love. Let us movetogether towards the great world fellowship of which we dream. Let us work together for the peacethat will never be ended. Let us work for justice, for equity, for human rights but not privileges, forhuman duties but not prerogatives, let us be fellow citizens of a great free world of which ourancestors dreamed and for which we have striven. Men and women together, men and women of acommon humanity, let no religion, no community, no text, no tongues divide us, for ours is a commondestiny. Ours is a common wish and ambition to rebuild this broken world into the image of ourheart‘s desire. And which country but India can take the lead in restoring the world to its pristineglory? We who have been the dreamers, the seers of visions, the creators of wisdom, the followers ofrenunciation, we, who have given the heroes of the independence struggle for India. We have runthrough the whole gamut of the world‘s adventures, of the world‘s emotions. We are the wise. We arereborn today of the crucible of your sufferings.Nations of the world, I greet you in the name of India, my mother, my mother whose home has a roofof snow, whose walls are of living seas, whose doors are always open to you. Do you seek peace orwisdom, do you seek love and understanding, come to us. Come to us in faith, come to us in hope,come to us believing that all gifts are ours to give. Today, in the name of India, I give for the wholeworld the freedom of this India that had never died in the past, that shall be indestructible in thefuture and shall lead the world to ultimate peace.a) Who are the foreigners whom the author thanks on the day of India‘s independence?
