10. What was the main cause of poor health conditions of women in India? Read the passage and answer.

At one time in the history of India, most women knew very well how to bring up their infants and they lived a perfectly healthy life, free from diseases. The overall standard of women and children in the country was much better than that of other civilizations of that period. But ever since India was exposed to frequent foreign invasions from foreign nations, life was unsafe and property unprotected, the people were forced to congregate in towns in such a compact way that it led to awful insanitation and diseases. The traditional knowledge of domestic and personal health and hygiene was ignored. Women were confined indoors for fear of insults and a train of social and unhealthy dangers followed all around. It is a problem how now we can restore the original conditions of a healthy and happy life in India. This is a socio-economic problem that needs to be given priority to bring back the original culture and restore the welfare of women and children in India.

13. What does the art of writing do to man's character? Read the passage and answer.

Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, 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 may also 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 maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man. And, therefore, if a man writes little, he had need have a good memory; if he confers little, he had need have a present wit; and if he read little, he had need have much cunning to seem to know that he doth not. “Histories make men wise, poets witty, the mathematics subtle, natural philosophy deep, moral, logic and rhetoric able to contend.”
