    How many kinds of irony are usually known? Define.
    There are two kinds of irony are usually known:

    1...Situational irony occurs when the discrepancy lies in the situation itself. You expect something but something else happens. Or a situation calls for an expected response but something unexpected happens instead e.g. there is a house on fire and you expect the fire fighter to aim a water hose / pipe at the fire, but instead he aims a petrol pipe / hose. That would be very
    Ironical.

    2...Verbal irony occurs when there is discrepancy between what is said and what is meant. e.g. Usually the exact opposite, or a near opposite, is what is meant: an eager cricket player looks out of the window and sees that it is raining.
    “Oh, great!” he says, meaning exactly the opposite. Another example to illustrate this: After seeing a terrible performance by an actor in a movie someone might say “Now that’s an actor who is sure to win the Best Actor Award for this year!” – Both e.gs. Illustrate verbal irony.

    Write a précis of the given passage in your own words. The précis should be one third of the passage.

    In 1828, baby Leo was born into the rich and powerful Tolstoy family of Central Russia. He would grow up to write two of the greatest novels in the history of literature and inspire social reform that would make an impact on the world. Not just another Russian author, Leo Tolstoy was a teacher, a philosopher, and the grandfather of non-violent revolution.

    Tolstoy was an unsettled young man. He was a poor student who left his university when he could find no meaning in his studies. He joined the army but could not endure the violence and soon left that as well. By this time, Tolstoy was being noticed as a writer but he still felt unfulfilled. It was during this time that Tolstoy wrote his most famous books, ‘War and Peace’ and ‘Anna Karenina’. In them, Tolstoy offered a new kind of fiction to Russian readers. He described events and characters so detailed and convincing that they blurred the line between the imaginary and real life. In Tolstoy's version, it was not great leaders that moved history, but the common people. His work has been called, "not art, but a piece of life."

    Tolstoy suffered a mid-life crisis after writing ‘Anna Karenina’. Giving up his fortune to live among the peasants, he decided he must find the meaning of life or else kill himself. What he found came from the core of his Christian faith—universal love and passive resistance to evil. Gandhi later adopted this message in his campaign to free India. Martin Luther King, Jr. did the same in his fight for racial equality in America. The effects of passive resistance can still be felt today. Tolstoy was a gifted writer, but it was his revolutionary ideas that changed the course of history and the world in which we live.

    Question No: 13 ( Marks: 3 )
    Recall your memory about ‘Making inferences’ and identify the statements as True/False.
    1. When the meaning of a word is not implied by the general sense of its context or by examples, it may be implied by an antonym or by a contrasting thought in a context. 2. A paragraph without a topic sentence may have an implied main idea. 3. .A paragraph without a topic sentence does not have supporting details.






    Question No: 14 ( Marks: 3 )
    Read the following text and state the main idea of the passage. To many parents, the infant's crying may be mainly an irritation, especially if it continues for long periods. But crying serves important functions for the child as well as for the parents. For the child, crying helps improve lung capacity and the respiratory system. Perhaps more important, the cry serves as a signal of distress. When babies cry, they indicate that they are hungry or in pain, and this is important information for parents.


    Question No: 15 ( Marks: 5 )
    Write the correct prefix in the blanks to make negative forms of the adjectives. 1. I love high heels but they're rather _practical. 2. It is an _logical statement, because if one part is true, then the other must be false. 3. It is polite to point at people. 4. It was possible to sleep because of the noise. 5. it’s totally rational, but I'm frightened of mice.


    Question No: 16 ( Marks: 5 )
    Read the following paragraph and write the sentence that best states the implied main idea. Is there any one day of the year you dread?
    For some people, it is their birthday. After all, a birthday is a reminder that we are getting older. Others are anxious as April 15 approaches. This is the day that federal taxes are due. For others, the most feared day is Friday the 13th. On this day, wedding chapels are usually shut down. Toy stores sell out Ouija boards. Travel is down, especially on airplanes. And people have been known to stay in their house the entire day rather than risk anything happening to them.


    Question No: 17 ( Marks: 5 )
    Read this paragraph and identify the main idea.
    Dogs are good for children because they teach children to be responsible. Children who have to feed the dog and perform other works related to dogs, learn to be responsible for the life of another being. Cats also teach children responsibility, and along with this, children who own a cat learn about independence since cats are quick to teach this. Rabbits teach children about having babies because as anyone who has owned more than one rabbit knows; they have a lot of babies. Snakes, rats, fish and gerbils are also good to teach children about cleanliness and proper bathing habits. Most pets teach children valuable lessons.
