SAMPLE QUESTION PAPER ENGLISH ELECTIVE-CBSE GRADE XII Time allowed: 3 Hrs The Question paper is divided into three sections: Section A Reading Section B Writing and Grammar Section C Literature Maximum Marks: 100 20 marks 40 marks 40 marks General Instructions: i. ii. iii. All the questions are compulsory. You may attempt any section at a time. All questions of a particular section must be attempted in the correct order. SECTION-A (Reading : 20) 1 Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow : 1. The Ring at Casterbridge was merely the local name of one of the finest Roman amphitheaters, if not the very finest remaining in Britain.
