DAV PUBLIC/MODEL SCHOOLS, WEST BENGAL ZONE PRE BOARD EXAMINATION Session: 2020-2021 Class: XII Subject: English Core Maximum Marks: 80 Time: 3 hours General Instructions: 1. This question paper is divided into two parts: A and B. All questions are compulsory. 2. Separate instructions are given with each section and question, wherever necessary. Read these instructions very carefully and follow them. 3. Do not exceed the prescribed word limit while answering the questions. 4. Please check that this question paper contains 13 typed pages and 13 questions. Part A (40 marks) READING: 20 marks 1. Read the passage given below: 1. Modern life can be stressful enough already, but COVID-19 is likely to have made matters worse for many of us be it financially, through isolation or other challenges. While we ve evolved to have biological responses that help us handle risks and challenges, unfortunately, that was for a time when threats usually took the form of things, we could either scarper away from or bash on the head. The chemicals released by adrenal glands effectively set us up for either of those options but are more of a hindrance now particularly when those responses can be triggered many times in a day. 2. Fortunately, there are ways we can take back control of our bodies with techniques to help us calm down and relax. While no handy one size fits all formula exists yet (as far as I know), there are different paths to the same goal and, hopefully, some of the ideas below may work for you. These can sometimes work together with a cumulative benefit and can lead to other changes go to bed relaxed, and you will probably get a better night s sleep and so be better able to cope with the next day. 3. Have a personal space and time available for you each day to act as a buffer, a chance to unwind. Great if you have some form of Man Cave or She Shed if not, look for somewhere that you can reserve for you. If relevant, having a break between coming back from work and resuming home life can be very helpful. 4. Anything that slows our breathing down helps send an all-clear to our body that the threat has passed. Activities such as painting, writing (keep a journal?), jigsaws, Sudoku, crosswords, model making can all help with this, as can listening to relaxing music. Meditation and mindfulness can help. If you have a smartphone, there are free metronome apps you can experiment with to practice slowing your breathing. Walking is a great way to combine fitness with relaxation. Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga can all help as well. While the latter is probably best done with an experienced teacher, there are YouTube videos available for the others. 1X10=10
