Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives. It is a labour of love and the result of painstaking research. Chikankari - A Lucknawi Tradition by Paola Manfredi an Italian is a book that shows her close and long association with the craft. Lucknow s chikankari is known across the world yet very little research or documentation has been done. Articles or features have appeared off and on but this book is amongst the first of its kind which aims to document the vast treasure called Chikan. What makes the book extremely interesting is that unlike other books that tend to rely on second hand material with exhaustive references and quotes Paola Manfredi has filled her tome with passionate grass-roots level research. The narrative more in the nature of a personal journey with all the quirks and street-smart practicality makes the book refreshing. As Paola says in the book it is not a scholarly or academic research but more of a documentation of the world of chikankari.Paola questions the use of chikan as a word for embroidery highlighting that it has a broader connotation encompassing haute couture the fine art of making a garment embroidering it and finishing it with finesse. She is no stranger to chikankari having worked with SEWA and several craftsmen. Her love for white on white embroidery also found a calling in chikan. Paola came to India to work in textile exports and as she says If you like textiles ... India is a heaven an inexhaustible treasure trove. Why did Paola come to India?
1.To visit Lucknow
2.To write a book
3.To study chikankari
4.To work in textile exports
Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives. Many plays and films have depicted the life story of Gautama Buddha but what made the musical play The Way Across unique was its regional focus. Directed by G. Kumara Swamy the play adapted from the book Telangana lo Buddhism focused on the enlightenment of a cursed Brahmin Bawari and his 16 curious disciples willing to understand the deeper truths of birth death rebirth and brotherhood. From the impressive use of projector visuals music and shadow-play there was every effort to lend authenticity to the theme. Despite the play s focus on Telangana the native essence was compromised due to the English rendition (done for a wider reach). The lines appeared jaded with literal translations. The honest performances from the crew impacted only on a surface-level. Kiran Kumar s Bawari act and Krishna Chaitanya Joshi as Pingiya (said to have propagated Buddhism from Telangana to several regions across South India) grab your attention. What was sacrificed to keep the play in English?
1.A wider audience
3.Depiction of reality
4.A bit of native essence

But when you take time to look closely at the statue you will marvel at its sheer grandeur. Sculpted by Sir Thomas Brock the 11 feet high marble statue is larger than life. It brings out the personality of Queen Victoria who had been the Monarch of Great Britain from 1837 till 1901 depicting a rather proud stern person with pronounced features.In 1906 the statue was unveiled in the city by George Frederick Ernest Albert Prince of Wales and Duke of Cornwall and York making it stand in all its glory in its 111th year. Even though there is a wealth of history to the statue and it was made to appear imposing the busy Bengalureans would probably refer to it as just another landmark. As the workers are busy in discussion on the instructions given to them life continues as usual in the Park.How many people unveiled the Queen Victoria statue at Cubbon Park?
Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.Everyone expected Mary Zophres to win for her retro-revival Technicolor clothes in La La Land - the eventual winner Colleen Atwood for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them seemed surprised too. But as other awards began to slip away from the well-reviewed musical a theme could be teased out. What is Fantastic Beasts if not a plea for equal treatment of people magical or otherwise? Then Arrival a film about the inherent benignity of aliens (read immigrants) won for Best Sound Editing. Hacksaw Ridge which is in a way an anti-guns movie won in two categories. Fences about an African-American father who fears racial discrimination took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Earlier Moonlight featuring two minority communities (black and gay) won for Best Supporting Actor. This turned out to be one of those years the Oscar voter was underestimated. As a majority of voters are actors there was the tendency to think they d reward La La Land a celebration of creation: the heroine wants to make movies the hero wants to make jazz. It looked like the year of The Artist all over again. Which movie for sure won two awards?
Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.Prebiotics are the lesser-known gut-health promoters which serve as food for good bacteria inside the gut. We found that dietary prebiotics can improve non-REM (random eye movement) sleep as well as REM sleep after a stressful event said Robert Thompson a PhD researcher at University of Colorado Boulder in the U.S. Prebiotics are dietary fibres found naturally in foods like artichokes raw garlic leeks and onions.When beneficial bacteria digest prebiotic fibre they not only multiply improving overall gut health but they also release metabolic by-products. Researchers fed three-week-old male rats a diet of either standard chow or chow that included prebiotics. They then monitored the rats body temperature gut bacteria and sleep-wake cycles â€” using electroencephalogram (EEG) or brain activity testing over time. Findings revealed that the rats on the prebiotic diet spent more time in non-rapid-eye-movement (NREM) sleep which is restful and restorative than those on the non-prebiotic diet.How are metabolic by-products released?
1.When good bacteria help sleep
2.When good bacteria digest dietary fibres
3.When gut becomes rich in nutrients
4.After recovery from stress due to sleep

Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.Tryst with Destiny was a speech delivered by Jawaharlal Nehru the first Prime Minister of independent India to the Indian Constituent Assembly in Parliament on 14th August 1947. It is considered to be one of the greatest speeches of all times and to be a landmark oration that captures the essence of the triumphant culmination of the largely nonÂviolent Indian independence struggle against the British Empire in India.Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge not wholly or in full measure but very substantially. Freedom and power bring responsibility. The responsibility rests upon the assembly a sovereign body representing the sovereign people of India. The service of India means the service of the millions who suffer. It means the ending of poverty and ignorance and disease and inequality of opportunity. We cannot encourage communalism or narrowÂmindedness for no nation can be great whose people are narrow in thought or in action.To the people of India whose representatives we are this is no time for petty and destructive criticism no time for ill will or blaming others. We have to build the noble mansion of free India where all her children may dwell. The most dominant voice in the speech is
1.the voice of optimism
2.the voice of surrender
3.the voice of negligence
4.the voice of weakness
