Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, Lucknow Region Pre-board Examination II, 2020-21 ENGLISH CORE-301 CLASS- XII Time allowed- 3 Hrs. Maximum Marks- 80 General Instructions: 1. This paper is divided into two sections: A & B. Both the sections are compulsory. 2. Separate instructions are given with each section and question, wherever necessary. Read these instructions very carefully and follow them faithfully. 3. Do not exceed the prescribed word limit while answering subjective questions. Part -A (40 Marks) READING 1. Read the passage given below. (20 marks) (1x10=10) 1.There were hundreds of us in the lecture hall, watching the descent of the Vikram Lander, with the Pragyan rover descending on the lunar surface, its thrusters in full force, slowing down the free fall of the delicate component of the Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft, all 1498 kg of it hurtling down, pulled by the gravity of Moon. It had separated from the rest of the spacecraft four days ago. leaving the orbiter in its path about 100 km above the lunar surface, where it is going to spend at least 7 years, with its eight excellent instruments sending back crucial scientific information about the Moon, its environment and even the Sun. 2.We were applauding as the green dot on the plot of the landing trajectory, showing the altitude and the range of the lander, reached about two km above the surface, at which point its speed was about 50mls. Far too high still, we thought- it had to come well below 5 m/s for a soft landing as it reached the ground. Then our spirits fell as it deviated from the expected course, and got stuck, indicating that we had lost communication. This is the phase, which the ISRO Chairperson Dr K Sivan had described as the, 15 minutes of terror . We still haven t recovered communication, but thermal imaging from the orbiter s cameras has located the site of the landing on Sunday. The extent of the damage to Vikram is still being assessed If things had gone according to plan, India would have joined an elite club of three other nations that have landed in one piece on an extra- terrestrial surface the Moon, Mars or an asteroid. If the Rover had been out on its 14 days prowl. We would have learnt about the traces of gaseous elements near the surface of the Moon and also about the low level Moonquakes from the embedded seismometer.
