SECTION – A
Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and ability. Their chief use for delight is in privateers and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment and disposition of business. For expert, men can execute, and perhaps judge of particulars, one by one; but the general counsels, and the plots and marshaling of affairs, come best from those that are learned. To spend too much time in studies is sloth; to use them too much for ornament, is affection; to make judgment wholly by their rules, is the humour of a scholar. They perfect nature, and are perfected by experience: for natural abilities are like natural plants that need pruning by study; and studies themselves do give forth directions too much at large, except they be bounded in by experience. Crafty men condemn studies, simple men admire them, and wise men use them; for they teach not their own use; but that is wisdom without them, and above them, won by observation. Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; not to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tested, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested; that is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly and with diligence and attention. Some books also may be read by deputy, and extracts made of them by others; but that would be only in the less important arguments, and the meaner sort of books; else distilled books are like common distilled waters, flashy things.
Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. And therefore, if a man writes little, he has need to have a great memory; if he confers little, he has need to ha e a present wit; and if he reads little, he has need to have much cunning, to seem to know that he does not. Histories make man wise; poems witty; the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy deep, moral grave; logic and rhetoric able to contend. Abeunt studia in mores: Studies pass into the character, Nay there is no stand or impediment in the wit, but may be wrought out by fit studies: like as diseases of the body may have appropriate exercise. Bowling is good for the stone and reins, shooting for the lungs and breast; gentle walking for the stomach; riding for the head; and the like. So if a man’s wit by wandering let him study the mathematics; for in demonstrations, if his wit be called away never so little, he must begin again. If his wit be not apt to distinguish or find differences, let him study the school men; for they are cymini sectors. If he is not apt to bear over matters and to call up one thing to prove and illustrate another, let him study the lawyers’ cases. So every defect of the mind may have a special receipt.

Read the passage given below and answer the questions:
Information technology and library services are two faces of the same coin. In a village set up mostly the young and the old use libraries and the middle-aged make little use of these libraries. They need job related information to update their skills and knowledge. The library and information services play a dominant role in catering to education, information and recreational requirements of society. Library is an instrument of social change. All along the concept of library has been associated with literacy and books, and the librarian was considered the keeper of books. Concurrent with changes in society, the concept of library has changed. It is a multimedia center and a place for learning resources for the literate as well as the illiterate. Education is the key to individual achievement and national strength.
Integrated approach in starting at least a reading room in every hamlet is the need of the hour. Coordination between the Department of education and Panchayati Raj in spreading the library movement is of paramount importance. Amalgamation of adult education programmers with the library programmers also needs to be given a greater thought. The school can function in a hamlet or a village serving the common needs of students and public. The massive permanent building programmers for weaker sections in rural areas should earmark at least one house for every 1,000 houses or in every cluster for library purpose. The services of a retired teacher or a retired employee in that hamlet can be achieved. A person residing in the same hamlet is more useful with inherent advantages than an outsider for library work as the library has to function in the evening hours and to be extended for TV and Internet operations also. Information technology, Internet and e-commerce have great potential in catering to public needs. However, we have to be pragmatic in our approach in terms of electronic access to information in rural areas. Availability, affordability, accessibility, acceptability, and sustainability of the service should also be kept in view. Once a common service place is identified, the IT-based services can conveniently be cushioned on. It is hoped that the State and Central governments will give top priority to this minimum facility.
