PRE-BOARD EXAMINATION-2020-21 SUBJECT - ENGLISH Class: XII (CBSE) Total Marks: 80 Date . Time: 3 hrs. General Guidelines: (i) This paper is divided into three Sections: A, B and C. All the sections are compulsory. (ii) Separate instructions are given with each section and question, wherever necessary. Read these instructions very carefully and follow them faithfully. (iii) Do not exceed the prescribed word limit while answering the questions. SECTION - A READING - 20 MARKS 1. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow: It is not cool to be fat, but that has not prevented an obesity epidemic from occurring among America s youth. Childhood obesity increased from 5% in 1964 to about 13% in 1994. Today it is about 20% and rising. Children, on average, spend up to five to six hours a day involved in sedentary activities like watching television, using the computer, and playing video games, which is partly to blame for this escalating rate. Perhaps it wouldn t matter if they were sufficiently active at other times, but most of them aren t. To make matters worse, children are bombarded with TV ads from fast food chains and other purveyors of high fat, high sugar meals and snacks. These highly effective advertising campaigns, combined with a physically inactive lifestyle, have produced a generation of kids who are at high risk for obesity-associated medical conditions. The major health threat is the early development of Type 2 diabetes (adult onset), particularly in children with a family history of disease. Doctors are reporting a surge in young adolescents developing Type 2 diabetes- which can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, stroke, limb amputations and blindness. People who develop diabetes in adolescence face a diminished quality of life and shortened life span, particularly if the disease progresses untreated. It s a scary prospect for our children, but, in many cases, obesity and diabetes are preventable. When children are spending most of their free time sitting infront of televisions and computers, they are not outside running, jumping or engaging in team sports that would keep their weight down. Parents need to set limits on the time their children are engaged in passive activities. Paediatricians recommend restricting children to one to two hours per day on TV and computers combined though older children may need additional time for learning activities. Page 1 of 5
