6. Read the following passage and answer the questions below: [5 X 2 = 10]

Suppose that you are considering whether to become a vegetarian. You might consider this issue for at least two different sets of reasons. On the one hand you might feel this is essentially a moral issue – about the rights and wrongs of treating animals in particular way and eating them. Or you might see it mainly as a health issue – about the benefits and health risks associated with eating meat. Of course, you might think both sets of considerations are relevant, but it is very common for people to adopt one perspective or the other. The point is that you need to be as clear as possible about the background to the decision, the assumption which lie in the background, the context and so on if you are to weigh the case wisely. Although models of good decision making often fail to mention this requirement explicitly, it is implicit and getting clear about why a decision is necessary helps to focus one’s thinking.

Sometimes being clear about why a decision is necessary means identifying a problem and sometimes it will require you to think carefully about objectives – what you or others want to achieve. So for example, if you are considering which university to attend, you might realize you know very little about the institutions you could attend, so that is a problem. Alternatively someone might advise you could attend, so that is a problem. Alternatively someone might advise you to apply for university A ‘because that is the most prestigious place for the subjects in which you are interested’, but you may feel that this is not necessarily right for you, so you may need to think carefully about what you want to get from your university education, what you are looking for-what your objectives are.


a) Give two reasons why you want to become a vegetarian.
b) What do you mean by health issue?
c) Why do you need to be as clear as possible about the background to the decision?
d) What is a problem if you are considering which university to attend?
e) Give a suitable title for the passage.

7. Answer any two of the following questions: [2 X 10 = 20]

a. Write an essay about your favorite TV programme. Describe how often it is shown in a week. What in interesting about it and its drawbacks, if any.
b. Write a letter to your friend telling him or her about a festival you like most. (Don’t mention your name, school’s name and address. Write xyz in the place of your name and address)
c. Write a report on road accident you have recently seen or heard.

8. Express the ideas below using ‘if’

Example: He was reading a book in the waiting room – he missed the train.
If he hadn’t been reading a book, he wouldn’t have missed the train.
a. She did not set the alarm, so she overslept.
b. She didn’t hear the knock on the door, because she was listening to the radio.
c. He was walking alone the seashore when he found a gold ring.
d. He was not talking very loudly, so I couldn’t understand him.
