Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow : [7]
An every country people imagine that they are the best and the cleverest and the others are not so good as they are. The English-man thinks that he and his country are the best; the Frenchman is very proud of France and everything French. The Germans and Italians think no less of their countries and many Indians imagine that India is in many ways the greatest country in the world. This is wrong. Everybody wants to think well of himself and his country. But really there is no person, who has not got some good and some bad qualities.

In the same way there is no country which is not partly good and partly bad. We must take the good wherever we find it and try to remove the bad whatever it may be. We are, of course, most concerned with our own country, India. Unhappily, it is in a bad way today. Most of our people are poor and unhappy. They have no joy in their lives. We have to find out how we can make them happier. We have to see what is good in our ways and customs and try to keep it, and whatever is bad we have to throw away. If we find anything good in other countries, we should certainly take it.

Time: The Twenty Fifth century.
Place: The Museum of Ancient History : Department of the Twentieth Century of the Planet Earth.
Before Rise: Spotlight shines on Historian, who is sitting at a table down right, on which is a movie projector. A sign on an easel beside her reads- Museum of Ancient History : Department of the Twentieth Century. She stands and bows to audience.
Historian: Good afternoon. Welcome to our Museum of Ancient History, and to my department curiosities of the good old, far-off twentieth century. The twentieth century was often called the Era of the Book. In those days, there were books about everything, from anteaters to Zulus. Books taught people how to, and when to, and where to, and why to. They illustrated, educated, punctuated, and even decorated. But the strangest thing a book ever did was to save the Earth. You haven’t heard about the Martian invasion of 2040?

(ii) How does the historian welcome to the audience?
(iii) Why and by which name was the twentieth century called?
(iv) Write the word from the passage which means: ‘ancient’.

Question 20.
Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow : [4 × 1 = 4]
I reflected on my life in the U.S.A. There, when prejudice is felt, it is open, obvious, blatant; the white man makes his position very clear, and the black man fights those prejudices with equal openness and fervour, using every constitutional device available to him. The rest of the world in general and Britain in particular are prone to point an angrily critical finger at American intolerance, forgetting that in its short history as a nation it has granted to its Negro citizens more opportunities for advancement and betterment per capita, than any other nation in the world with an indigenous Negro population.

Each violent episode, though greatly to be deplored, has invariably preceded some change, some improvement in the American Negro’s position. The things they have wanted were important enough for them to fight and die for, and those who died did not give their lives in vain. Furthermore, American Negroes have been generally established in communities in which their abilities as labourer, artisan, doctor, lawyer, scientist, educator and entertainer have been directly or indirectly of benefit to that community; in terms of social and religious intercourse they have been largely independent of white people.

(i) What prejudice did the speaker feel in the U.S.A.?
(ii) What is the policy of America for Negro in the eyes of other countries of the world?
(iii) What do Americans want from Negros?
