Pre Board Examination 2019 Std. 10 18-01-2019 Set 2 ENGLISH Max. Marks : 80 Time : 3 hrs. The Question paper is divided into three sections; Section A Reading (20 marks) Section B Writing and Grammar (30 marks) Section C Literature (30 marks) General Instructions: i) All questions are compulsory. ii) You may attempt any section at a time. iii) All questions of that particular section must be attempted in the correct order. Section A(Reading) 1. Read the following passage carefully: 1 Fear of failure is an attitude problem. All of us postpone things. We procrastinate. We rationalize. We make excuses. We foolishly believe that to be creative and to have a positive attitude and to simply do things, we have to have all kinds of preconditions.You can find several excuses for waiting to be more creative. But scratch the surface of these smooth and logical rationalizations, and if you are honest, you will see the face of a little demon, the fear of failure, hiding there.Zig Ziglar reminds us that this is nothing but an attitude problem. The future can be depressing or magnificent-it is not correlated to the present or the past, past failures or successes. It is only our attitude towards these failures or successes which determines our future. You can change yourself by changing your attitude without fear of error. 2 Problems cause stress and stress reduces our effectiveness. So it is very logical that once we solve our problems, we should be able to increase our efficiency and effectiveness. Incidentally, we can t eliminate problems unless we opt for the final exit-the very thought of this itself is stressful!What causes our problems? Well, roughly speaking one third of our problems are there because we are alive and kicking; another one-third of our problems are created by ourselves; and the remaining one-third of our problems exist because of greed and ego.When too many problems are causing you enormous stress and strain, do the following:Think there must be a better way to solve these problems. It helps to remember the crow and jug story! Recall similar stories and incidents.Ask, ask, ask from yourself and from others, how to do things in better ways. May be certain things should not be done at all or should be clubbed with other activities! Don t forget even stupid questions will get you intelligent and common sense answers. 3 Do it now! Start doing it. Don t forget that the first step towards solving a problem is to begin. The first step is the most difficult one, but taking it will kill procrastination-a disease or a problem in itself. Do not forget to prioritise your problems first. Those which are C category jobs should be delegated to others, but do not forget to check and recheck till these get done. There is always a silver lining in any gloomy situation, provided you starve the problems and feed the opportunities. For every problem, there could be several solutions, and solutions point towards opportunities.Apply the MISER concept to solve problems. MISER where M stands for Merge, I for Improve, S for Simplify, E for Eliminate and R for Reduce. MISER is an excellent conceptual sieve that helps in reducingproblems. 1.1 Answer the following questions: Answer any 8. a) Why do most people procrastinate? b) What determines our future? c) How does our effectiveness get reduced? d) Why can t we eliminate problems? e) What is the best way to tackle a problem? f) What does the word procrastinate mean?
