Q.1 SECTION A (READING) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. A fisherman, enfeebled with age, could no longer go out to sea so began fishing in the river. Every morning he would go down to the river and sit there fishing the whole day long. In the evening he would sell whatever he had caught, buy food for himself and go home.
