SECTION – A
Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
We want purity-pure food, pure water, pure air. We long pure surroundings. We yearn for pure heart and pure love. We prefer pure environment and pure society. We are fond of purity because purity promotes health. Impurities are injurious to health, Purity provides peace of mind, Impurities impair the mind. Both for physical health and mental health, we do require environmental purity for overall health.
Purity of body is physical health. Purity of speech is unsullied truth. Purity of heart is unselfish love. Purity of thought is righteous reason. Purity of mind is wholesome peace. Purity of action is sincere and unselfish service. Purity of society is harmonious unity. Purity of environment is soul-elevating serenity.
In the Mahabharata, there is an interesting episode to illustrate the nature of purity. The Pandavas and the Kauravas were Drona’s disciples. They were once summoned by the preceptor Drona for a test. The eldest of the Pandavas, Yudhishthira, was asked to bring one bad person from the society. The eldest of the Kauravas, Duryodhana was asked to fetch one good person from the same society in Hastinapura. After a through search, both the cousins returned empty-handed. The pure-minded Yudhishthira found everyone to be pious and pure. The impure mind of Duryodhana found everyone to be evil and impure. As is the mind, so is the vision.
Purity of mind makes our vision, words, and deeds pure. It has also the power to purify people. Evil has no place in the presence of purity. Nor can it face purity, as darkness cannot face the sun. It only gets changed into purity. Fools who come to scoff remain to pray in the presence of purity. Villains who come to harm stand in adoration in the presence of purity. Murderers become votaries of peace in the presence of purity.
Pavaharibaba was a saint. He was pure and pious. He lived a very simple life. One day, when he was asleep, a thief entered his dwelling place and took away the vessel containing food. The saint woke up and saw the running thief. Immediately he picked up the remaining to vessels containing boiled vegetables and curd and ran after him. The thief stopped and the saint approached him with all purity of love and said, “Child, the food is insufficient for you. You may have this also. Please sit and eat without any hurry”. The thief was wonder-struck by the affectionate words of the pure soul. There was a change in him. He prostrated himself before the saint. Without being pure at heart, if anybody imitates the saint, the result would be different. The thief only gives a blow and takes away the vessels. The test of genuine purity is in its metamorphosing ability.
Why do we prefer purity? 
What are the various types of purity? 
Why could Yudhishthira not find a bad person? 
What effect does purity of mind have on people? 
What was the reaction of the words of the saint on the thief?

Read the passage given below and answer the questions
Modern life is sophisticated and complex. Simple living and high thinking is a thing of the past, Complex living and low thinking has replaced this motto. Most of the people are artificial and sophisticated. They have one thing in their heart and another on their lips. Majority of the people in the cities are deceitful. Face is no more the index of mind. Only expert psychologists can study the character of a man from the outlook of a person. The world is full of cheats and robbers. Many a man with simple looks may be a crook in reality. It is a world of make belief and show business, Acting and mannerism are the rules of the day. The new generation is clear and smart. It is beyond recognition. Very few people are dependable in respect of their character and integrity.
In this world of complexity and artificiality, manners are all important. You cannot move in society unless you know about good, manners and possess them. Even if you may not have good meals, you have to maintain certain minimum standards of dress and make-up. Manners have become a part and parcel of life. Without proper manners, you are not welcome anywhere. However honest may be your intention and however innocent your behavior unless you can put up tactful show of manners, you will not earn respect of your fellow beings. For good manners, you must maintain a good personality. A clean dress, a clean body, well-brushed hair, style of dress in keeping with times, a good power of speech and conversation, certain patients in giving ears to the other party are necessary qualifications of a person professing to know manners. These qualifications are important for success in any walk of life. Their importance is all-pervading in modern times. Simplicity, innocence, honesty and similar traits of this kind have lost their values. These traits make a simpleton of any intelligent person in modern society.
