Attempt either Question 5 or 6 3. Your answer should be to the point. Adhere to the word limit given. Q.1 a) SECTION A READING 20 MARKS Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow: 1. The most spectacular and in many ways the most fundamental social change that the Gandhian movement effected in India is in respect of the position of women. Undoubtedly, women in ancient India enjoyed a much higher status than their descendents in the 18th and 19th century. From the earliest days, there have been many notable women in India poets, scholars, administrators, social reformers and leaders of various movements.
