QUALITATIVE
Passage Based MCQ
Passage No. 1
Disability refers to any kind of physical or mental incapacity that limits a
persons ability to work. Yet it is seldom that we have thanked God for the
gift of Good health and well being. The smallest actions like seeing the
sunrise, brushing our teeth, popping peanuts into your mouth come so
naturally and effortlessly, and Yet we are never satisfied, always
discontented. It is not so for the disabled. For them it requires immense
concentration, effort, will power, energy and a lot of time. Despite this, it
could be a long way of perfection.
It takes great courage and determination to cope with disability.Give them
encouragement, facilities and resources, and then watch them as they
learn, earn, play, work and even start their families.
Very often we find that a person lacking in one faculty is gifted in some
other way. Thats natures way of maintaining balance. Some of the most
beautiful greeting cards are made by disabled children, using one hand,
one foot or even mouth. Nothing stops them from using their talent,
intelligence and their knowledge.

Passage No. 2
Once a man saw three masons who along with some labourers were
constructing a temple. He observed the masons for some days and found
that though the three of them were doing the same kind of work, there was
a marked difference in their approach to their job.
He saw that the first mason reported for his work late, did his work halfheartedly and sluggishly enjoyed longer respite, frequently checked the
time on his wrist-watch and left the work before time.
The second mason was very punctual in arriving and leaving, and did his
work methodically and conscientiously. The third mason,however, would
come before time, took little rest in the interval and often worked overtime.
The man naturally got curious and wanted to know the three masons
outlook towards their work. He asked them what they were doing. The first
92

Passage No. 4
Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :

What is soil?
Soil is the loose top layer of Earths surface. Plants, depend on soil. It
holds them up. It provides them with food and water.
Soil is made of particles. These very small pieces mostly come from rocks
broken down by weathering. Other soil particles come from rotting
remains of plants and animals. The part of soil that comes from living
things is called organic matter.
Many small organisms live in soil. They include worms, bacteria and
fungi. Fungi are like plants, but they arent green. And they have no
leaves, flowers or roots. The organisms feed on dead plants and animals.
They cause them to decay or break down. The decayed plant and animal
matter is called humus. Humus makes the soil dark. It provides the
nutrients, plants need to grow.
Soil develops in layers. The top layer consists mostly of humus. It is called
topsoil. The next layer down is called subsoil. Subsoil contains more rock
particles than topsoil and less humus. It is not as good for growing plants.
The layer below the subsoil has many pieces of rocks. The pieces get
bigger when they are deeper in the ground. Most plants cannot grow in
this rocky layer. The soil layers all rest on solid rock. It is called bedrock.
There are many types of soil. Soil can be of many colours. They can also
have different textures. Texture is the size of the particles that make up
soil.
Clay is a type of soil with many small particles. The particles are packed
together tightly. Clay can hold a lot of water, which makes it heavy and
sticky. Sand has much larger particles than clay. It feels rough. Theres a
lot of air space between the particles, so water drains through this soil
easily.
Loam contains a mix of sand and clay. Loam is the best soil for growing
plants. It lets just the right amount of water pass through for plant roots to

Passage No. 5
Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :
Some animals in a forest decided to start a school. The students included
a bird, a squirrel, a fish, a dog, a rabbit and a mentally retarded eel. A
board was formed to determine the curriculum and it was decided that
flying, tree climbing, swimming and burrowing would give a broad-based
education. All animals were required to take all subjects.
The bird was excellent at flying and was getting As but when it came to
burrowing, it kept breaking its break and wings and started failing. Pretty
soon, it started making Cs in flying and, of course, in tree climbing and
swimming it was getting Fs. The squirrel was great at tree climbing, but
was failing in swimming. The fish was the best swimmer but couldnt get
out of the water and thus got Fs in everything else. The dog didnt join the
school, stopped paying taxes, and kept fighting with the administration to
include barking as part of the curriculum. The rabbit got As in burrowing
but tree climbing was a real problem. It kept falling and landing on its
head, suffered brain damage, and soon couldnt even burrow properly
100

and got Cs in that too.


The mentally retarded eel, who did everything half as well, became the
valedictorian of the class. The board was happy because everybody was
getting a broad-based education.

Passage No. 8
Education is for life, not merely for a livelihood! So long as we are
unmindful of this truth the quality of our educational curriculum as well as
that of our teachers and students will remain inadequate. It is not enough
for a society to have experts. It needs human beings who can think, feel,
and act generously, the kind of people who cannot be replaced by the
computers and robots. The great faults of our present age is its emphasis
on efficiency at the cost of humanity.
1. The author talks about ....................... in the above passage.
(a) Human beings

Passage No. 7

Sound is a kind of energy and it needs a medium to travel as it is a kind of


longitudinal wave. The speed of sound in different medium is different.
Along with the nature of the medium temperature also affects the speed of
the sound. At 25C speed of sound in some medium is given below :
1.

Air

346 m/.s

2.

Water (Distilled)

1498 m/s

3.

Water (Sea)

1531 m/s

4.

Flint Glass

3980 m/s

5.

Steel

5960 m/s

Sound energy gets reflected through a suitable reflecting surface. An


echo is a reflected sound which is heard separately. The sensation of
sound persists in our brain for about 0.1sec. To hear the echo clearly at
22C, the minimum distance between the source of sound and obstacle
should be 17.2 m as the speed of sound in air at that temperature is 344
m/s.
1.

The speed of sound is more in sea water than in distilled water


at the same temperature because of
(i)

taste of sea water is different from distilled water

(ii)

density of sea water is more than distilled water

(iii) sea water can conduct electricity


(iv) animals can survive in sea water.
2.

An echo is returned in 3 sec. at 22C in a hall. What will be the


distance of reflecting surface from the source.

Passage No. 8
In everyday life, we see some objects at rest and others in motion. An
object may appear to be moving for one person and stationary for some
other. Most motions are complex. Some objects may move in a straight
line, others may take a circular path. The simplest type of motion is the
motion along a straight line. The shortest distance measured from the
initial to the final position of an object is known as the displacement.
If the object covers equal distance in equal intervals of time, it is said to be
in uniform motion. During uniform motion of an object along a straight line,
the velocity remainse constant with time. In this case, the change in
velocity of the object for any time interval is zero. However, in non-uniform
motion, velocity varies with time. Non-uniform motion is of two types
uniform acceleration and non-uniform acceleration. If a car travelling
along a straight road increases its speed by unequal amount in equal
intervals of time, the car is said to be moving with non-uniform
acceleration whereas, if its speed increases or decreases by equal
144

amount in equal interval of time, it is said to be moving with uniform


acceleration.

Passage No. 9

There are two forms of mechanical energy in an object kinetic energy


and potential energy. Kinetic energy is associated with an objects motion,
while potential energy is the stored energy in an object as a result of its
vertical position i.e. height. The total amount of mechanical energy is the
sum of these two forms of energy. A group of students are studying the
relationship between the Potential Energy(PE), Kinetic Energy (KE) and
total mechanical energy (TME) for a cart rolling down and up on the incline
plane. The four different locations of the cart in (cm) are given below in fig
1 and energy values of the cart in fig 2. On the basis of these observations
answer the following questions.

In 1918-19 there was a serious outbreak of flu.


The virus was known as Spanish flu and
it is estimated that it killed more than 20
million people. Recent research which had been conducted
into the structure of this virus has shed important
light on this killer disease. The scientists conducting
the research used viral DNA sequences from
the biopsies which was taken from American
soldiers who died in the pandemic of 1918-19
worringly the results of the research suggest
that the 1918-19 virus may have had its origin in
birds and that it jumped the species barier to
infect human beings.

It is said that word is done upon on abject whenever a force acts
upon it and displaces it. For example if plough is moved across a
field, usually a bullock or a tractor supplies the force to do the work
on the plough. Energy is acquired by the object upon which work is
done and this energy is known as mechanical energy. This implies
that mechanical energy is the energy possessed by an object due
to its motion or due its position. Mechanical energy can be either
kinetic energy (energy of motion) or potential energy ( stored
energy of position). A moving ball. for example, possesses
mechanical energy due to both its high speed and its vertical
position above the ground.
The total amount of mechanical energy is the sum of the potential energy
and the Kinetic energy. This sum is simply referred to as the total
mechanical energy (TME)

Total Mechanical Energy = Potential Energy + Kinetic Energy

A form of potential energy is gravitational potential energy There is a direct


relation between the gravitational potential energy and the mass of an
object. Objects with more mass have greater gravitational potential energy
There is also a direct relation between gravitational potential energy and
the object is elevated, the greater is the gradational potential energy.
These relationships are expressed by the following equation.

177

IX PSA

Potential energy (gravitational) = mass x g x height


where m - mass of the object
g- acceleration due to gravity
h - height of the object
Since the gravitational potential energy is directly proportional to the height
of the object, doubling of the height will result in the doubling of the
gravitational potential energy. A tripling of the height, will result intripling of
the gravitational potential energy.

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion and depends upon two


variables - mass (m) of the object and speed (v) of the object. The following
equation is used to represent the kinetic energy of an object.
Kinetic energy = 1/2 mv2
The kinetic energy is directly proportional to the square of the speed. That
means that for a two fold increase in speed. the kinetic energy will increase
by a factor of four.

Paper chromatography can be used to identify metal ions in waste water a
drop of water sample solution is placed on filter paper. The bottom of the
paper is set in a solvent that travels up the paper (see figures )

The solvent carries the ions up the paper. Some ions move faster, and
therefore farther than others, resulting in a separation as they move up the
paper. The paper is dried, them stained, causing the ions to appear as
coloured spots. Rf values are calculated for each spot.
Rf =

Total linear distance travelled by ion


Total linear distance travelled by solvent

Table 1 shows Rf values for 5 ions and Table 2 shows Rf values of ions
present in 3 samples of wastewater. The same solvent was used for all ions
and samples.

Tow friends, Bina and Amita, always walked home from school together an
exclusive restaurant, often visited by foreign tourist.
One day, just as they were walking past the restaurant, a well-dressed woman
tourist bustled out of the main entrance. She made for a taxi waiting at the curb,
and in her haste, `1,000 note fluttered from her handbag to the footpath beside
Amita's feet. Amita bent to pick up the nots to return to the woman, but before she
could do that, Bina stepped on the notes, hiding them from view. Before Amita
could react, the woman scrambled into the texi which accelerated away into the
traffic.
Amita quickly turned to face Bina who had deftly scooped up the money and
stuffed it into the top of her school shirt. "What are you doing?" she raged. "That
money doesn't to you!" It does now" smirked Bina, "finders keepers. This will my
family pay some bills and we'll still have enough left over to buy ourselves a treat!"
Amita was shocked at this. "But it's not your money. You've stolen it! I'm not

Way back in 1870, when the technology to print coloured pictures was developed,
tobacco companies began using it to promote their cigarettes.
Famous people, including athletes and movies stars, were pictured on cards that
were included in each cigarette packet.
For years, cigarette were advertised in magazines, newspaper and cinemas. These
advertisements used many strategies to promote positive attitudes towards
smoking. Doctors, famous people and healthy looking teenagers having fun with
friends were shown in cigarette advertisements. There wasn't a dirty ashtray in
sight!
It isn't surprise, therefore, that addiction to cigarette among teenagers and adults
increased greatly. Not only did addiction increase, but smoking-related deaths also
increased.
International groups claim that tobacco is a legal consumer product that kills. This
makes it a perplexing product. Recently, some countries introduced laws to force
cigrattete makers to place warnings against smoking on every packet of cigarettes.
The warnings show some of the consequences of smoking, such as diseased lungs
and mouth cancers, but many people continue to smoke.

A
Everything on this planet is made up of atoms. Each atom contains a
positively charged centre, or nucleus, which is surrounding by negatively
charges and because they cancel each other out, the object ends up with no
overall electric charge. However, it is possible for objects to gain an
overall negative or positive charge.
When objects made of different materials are rubbed together, electrons
may jump from one object to the other. Objects become positively charged
if they lose electrons and negatively charges if they gain electrons. You can
predict which way the charges will jump by referring to a triboelectric

IX PSA

This list of common materials is arranged in order of how likely they are to
lose electrons. In general, when two materials are rubbed together, the
material that is higher on the list will lose electrons to the materials listed
below it. For example, if a perspex rod is rubbed with a piece of wool, the
wool will lose electrons to the perspex so the wool will end up with an
overall positive charge and the perspex will end up negatively charged.
The further apart the materials are on the list, he more easily the electrons
are transferred between them (which means that you don't have to rub
them together very long to get them to charge up). If you were to rub glass
with rabbit's fur, far fewer electrons will move to the glass than if you were
to rub the rabbit fur on something like ebonite.

Lenses are objects made of transparent materials such as glass or clear plastic that
has curved surfaces. There are two main kinds of lenses. Diverging lenses are
thicker at their edges than in their centres and they make light rays passing through
them spread out. Converging lenses are thicker in the middle than at their edges
and were the earliest kind of lens made. The earliest examples of these date back
280

two thousand years. They have been used in spectacles to help people with poor
vision see better since at least the tenth century.
These days, as well as being used in spectacles, converging lenses are used in
many other devices. Magnifying glasses, microscopes and some types of
telescopes use converging lenses to make small things much larger, microscopes
and some types of telescopes use converging lenses to make small things appear
much larger or to make distant objects appear much closer. Converging lenses
magnify by bending the rays of light that pass through them to meet to a point. This
point is called the focus. the thicker that a converging lens is in its centre, the more
it magnifies and the closer the focus is to they
lens.

The magnifying power of a single converging lens such as that used in a camera or
magnifying glass is equal to the length of the enlarged image divided by the length
of the original object. For example, if a 2cm long beetle appears to be 6cm long
when viewed through a magnifying glass, the glass' magnifying power is 3 written
as "3x"). Similarly, a 10x lens would make an object look 10 times longer. It will
also look 10 times wider.
