1. Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions that follow 

Look at the opposition between the pen and the sword. The sword can only destroy, ideas also can destroy – the ideas of Bolshevism destroyed Czarism; the ideas of Voltaire and Rousseau destroyed the French aristocracy. But ideas can also build, whereas the sword can only destroy.

It is in fact the power of ideas which has brought us out of barbarism into such civilization as we have been able to achieve. “In what”, asked Aristotle, ” Does man differ from the animal ?” and answered, “it is by virtue of a reason.” The greatnes

s of man consists in his thinking. The universe is vast, and man is tiny, but man has one advantage over the universe. He Knows it is vast and he is tiny, but the universe does not.

In this sense, that it is to ideas and not to violence, to the pen and not to the sword, that man owes whatever has distinguished him from animals, whatever has enabled him to rise above a purely savage condition. For the pen is the vehicle of thought, and it is by thought that man is enabled to voyage through the infinite in philosophy, to unlock the secrets of the universe, to create beauty and to commune with God.


a. (i) What destroyed Czarism ? 1

(ii) Who were responsible for the fall of the French aristocracy ? 1

(iii) What has brought humankind out of barbarism into civilization ? 1

(iv) What does the pen represent here ? 1

(v) How do ideas and the sword differ from each other ? 2

(vi) What, according to Aristotle, makes man different from the animal ? 2

(vii) What is the one advantages that man has over the universe ? 2

b. Pick out words from the passage that mean the following: 1×2 = 2

(i) People of noble birth or rank.

(ii) Primitive condition.

2. Read the following passages carefully and answer the questions that follow :

1.      There are two problems which cause great worry to our educationists – the problem of religious and moral instruction in a land of many faiths and the problem arising out of a large variety of languages.

2.      Taking up the education of children, we see that they should be trained to love one another, to be kind and helpful to all, to be tender towards the lower animals and to observe and think right. The task of teaching them how to read and write and to count and calculate is important, but it should not make us lose sight of the primary aim of moulding personality in the right way.

3.      For this, it is necessary to call into aid, culture, tradition and religion. But in our country we have, in the same school, to look after boys and girls born in different faiths and belonging to families that live diverse ways of life and follow different forms of worship associated with different denominations of religion. It will not do to tread the easy path of evading the difficulty by attending solely to physical culture and intellectual education. We have to evolve a suitable teaching method for seving the spiritual needs of school children professing different faiths. We should thereby promote an atmosphere of mutual respect, a fuller understanding and helpful cooperation among the different communities in our society. Again we must remain one people and we have therefore to give basic training in our schools to speak and understand more languages than one and to appreciate and respect the different religions prevailing in India. It is not right for us in India to be dissuaded from this by considerations as to overtaking the young mind. What is necessary must be done.

4.      Any attempt to do away with or steamroll the differences through governmental coercion and indirect pressure would be as futile as it would be unwise. Any imposition of a single way of life and form of worship on all children or neglect of a section of the pupils in this respect or barren secularization will lead to conflict between school and home life which is harmful. On the other hand, if we give due recognition to the different prevailing faiths in the educational institutions by organising suitable facilities for religious teaching for boys and girls of all communities, this may itself serve as a broadening influence of great national value.


A. On the basis of your reading of the above passage, make notes on it, using recognizable abbreviations whenever necessary. Add a suitable title to it.    5

B. Make summary of the above passage in about 80 words. 3
