DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL, JAMMU. ASSIGNMENT(Pre-Board 2) SESSION: 2019-20 Class: XII Subject: ENGLISH INSTRUCTIONS i) This paper is divided into three sections: A, B and C. All 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. 1 1 2 3 SECTION A (READING) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. The elephant at last came up and was brought below the porch of the house. They are truly ugly beasts, with their grey wrinkled, hairless hides, the huge ragged flappers which cover their ears and with which they fan themselves ceaselessly, the small mean eyes, the hideous trunk which coils itself snakishly round everything, the formless legs, the piggish back, with the steep slope down to the mean, bare tail, creatures so unlikely any other familiar and friendly beast. Before I came back from England, I dreamt of howdahs and cloth of gold trappings, but my elephant had neither. In fact there was nothing grand about him but his ugliness. I dropped into one of two baskets on either side of his back from the porch, a young Malay lad dropped into the other and my bag was tied on behind with more ropes. My ride was not comfortable. One sits facing forwardswith the feet dangling over the edge of the basket. This edge soon produces a sharp ache or cramp, and, when one tries to get relief by leaning back on anything, the awkward rolling position is so painful that one reverts to the former position till it again becomes intolerable. After we had travelled two hours,the baskets slipped down very dangerously and the great bulk of the elephant without any warning gently subsided behind and then just as gently in front, the huge, ugly legs being extended ahead of him. When the pack was adjusted, the driver jumped on the elephant s back, and giving me his hand hauled me up over the head, after which the creature rose gently from the ground and we went on our journey. Soon the driver abandoned the elephant for a gossip and a smoke, leaving the animalto go to its own way for a mile or more. The elephant turned into the jungle, where he began to rend and tear the trees and going to a mud hole, he drew what water there was out of it and squirted it with a loud noise over himself and his riders, soaking my clothes with it. When he turned back to the road again, he several times stopped and seemed to stand on his head stiffening his trunk and leaning upon it, and when I hit it with my umbrella, he uttered the loudest roar I ever heard. My Malay fellow-rider jumped off and ran back for the driver, at which the baskets both came down on my side of the elephant.
