Section A [Reading]
Read the passage bellow and answer the questions that follows –
It is only if we have character that freedom will produce happiness for the millions of our country . Character is not merely a copy – book ideal . It is the wisest national policy that can be conceived by any statesman . It is only if we have character that all things will work . Otherwise, not only freedom, education and the universities but the whole constitution will be mere waste paper . Hence the emphasis on character that has to be formed by the best type . I welcome the growing number of the girls in schools and colleges because it means that the schools and colleges are carried bodily into families . We will not need to multiply universities if only our mothers are all university products . Then every home will in itself be a university . All boys and girls that have to be looked after will be looked after from the earliest stages in the home by a worthy principal, namely the mother of the family . Do you then doubt the evaluation and 1 make that every girl graduate is worth five boy graduates taking the average of a family to be five?
We are in very serious times, because we are free . If we had not got freedom, the task would have been less serious . In the olden days, our task was only to fight, towrest freedom, enthuse one another and carry on the work . That was easy, as we know, but now that we have freedom and the entire burden of the future structure of our country is on our own shoulders, we must be as true in our conduct and thoughts as a brick that supports a building is true .
We can deceive one another, but can we deceive dynamics? Can we deceive the laws of nature? If bricks are not good and if they are not laid properly, the building will collapse, whatever may be engineers words or promises . In the natural structure we are dealing with, deception has no place .

आशा के बिना मानव जीवन असम्भव है। यदि आशा न होती तो मनुष्य का जीवन बड़ा बोझिल और दुखमय हो जाता । विद्यार्थी साल भर कड़ा परिश्रम करते हैं केवल इसी आशा पर कि वे सफलता का मुख देखेंगे। एक किसान घोर उष्णता और शीत का तनिक भी ध्यान नहीं करता। इसी प्रकार • व्यापारी लोग व्यापार में धन लगाते • केवल इसी आशा का आश्रय लेकर ताकि उनका व्यापार उनके लिए लाभकारी सिद्ध हो। तभी तो बुद्धिमान तथा महापुरुषों ने आशा को मानव रूपी जहाज का सम्बल कहा है।
