Part II
Q.2. Make a precise of the following passage and suggest a suitable heading. (20)
One of the most ominous and discreditable symptoms of the want of candour in present-day sociology is the deliberate neglect of the population question. It is or should be transparently clear that if the State is resolved, on humanitarian grounds, to inhibit the operation of natural selection, some rational regulation of population, both as regards quantity and quality, is imperatively necessary. There is no self-acting adjustment, apart from starvation, of numbers to the means of subsistence. If all natural checks are removed, a population in advance of the optimum number will be produced, and maintained at the cost of a reduction in the standard of living. When this pressure begins to be felt, that section of the population which is capable of reflection, and which has a standard of living which may be lost, will voluntarily restrict its numbers, even to the point of failing to replace deaths by an equivalent number of new births; while the underworld, which always exists in every civilised society the failures and misfits and derelicts, moral and physical will exercise no restraint, and will be a constantly increasing drain upon the national resources. The population will thus be recruited, in a very undue proportion, by those strata of society which do not possess the qualities of useful citizens.

The importance of the problem would seem to be sufficiently obvious. But politicians know that the subject is unpopular. The unborn have no votes. Employers like a surplus of labour, which can be drawn upon when trade is good. Militarists want as much food for powder as they can get. Revolutionists instinctively oppose any real remedy for social evils; they know that every unwanted child is a potential insurgent. All three can appeal to a quasi-religious prejudice, resting apparently on the ancient theory of natural rights, which were supposed to include the right of unlimited procreation. This objection is now chiefly urged by celibate or childless priests; but it is held with such fanatical vehemence that the fear of losing the votes which they control is a welcome excuse for the baser sort of politician to shelve the subject as inopportune. The Socialist calculation is probably erroneous; for experience has shown that it is the aspiration, not desperation, that makes revolutions.

Q.3. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow. Use your own language. (20)
Human beings are afraid of death just as children feel afraid of darkness. The fear of darkness of kids increased by the stories of the heard ghosts and thieves. In the same way, the fear of human being is increased by the stories which they heard about the agony of dying man. If a human being regards death as a kind of punishment for his sins he has committed and if he looks upon death as a means of making an entry into another world, he is certainly taking a religious and sacred view of death. But if a human being looks upon death as a law of nature and then feels afraid of it, his attitude is of cowardice. However, even in religious meditations about death there is sometimes a mixture of folly and superstition. Monks have written books in which they have described the painful experiences which they underwent by inflicting physical tortures upon themselves as a form of self purification. Thus, one may think that the pains of death must be indescribably agonizing. Such books and such thoughts increase a man’s fear of death.

Seneca, the Roman Philosopher is of the view that the circumstances and ceremonies of death frighten people more than death itself would do. A dyeing man is heard uttering groans; his body is seen undergoing convulsions; his face appears to be absolutely bloodless and pale; at his death his friends begin to weep and his relations put on mourning clothes; various rituals are performed. All such facts make death appear more horrible than it would be otherwise.

(1). What is the difference between human beings’ fear of death and children’s fear of darkness?
(2) What is a religious and sacred view of death?
(3) What are the painful experiences described by the Monks in their books?
(4) What are the views of Seneca about death?
(5) What are the facts that make death appear more horrible than it would be otherwise?

Q.4 Write a comprehensive note (250 – 300) on any ONE of the following:
(i) Self done is Well done
(ii) The Bough that bears most bend most
(iii) Nearer the Church, farther from God
(iv) Rich men have no fault
(v) Cut your coat according to your cloth

Q.5 Use ONLY FIVE of the following in sentences which illustrate their meaning. Extra attempt shall not be considered.
(i) Wool gathering (ii) Under the harrow (iii) Cold comfort (iv) A gold digger (v) Walk with God (vi) On the thin ice (vii) A queer fish (viii) Unearthly hour

Q.6 (a) Correct ONLY FIVE of the following: Extra attempt shall not be considered.5
(i) A ten feet long snake made people run here and there
(ii) We are going to the concert, and so they are.
(iii) Enclosed with this letter was a signed Affidavit and a carbon copy of his request to our main office.
(iv) Fear from God.
(v) Pakistan has and will support the Kashmiris.
(vi) He has come yesterday.
(vii) Arshad’s down fall was due to nothing else than pride.
(viii) Do not avoid to consult a doctor.

Q.6 (b) Change the narration from direct to indirect or indirect to direct speech (DO ONLY FIVE). Extra attempt shall not be considered.5
(i) He said to us, “You cannot do this problem alone”.
(ii) The beggar asked the rich lady if she could not pity the sufferings of an old and miserable man and help him with a rupee or two.
(iii) The Commander said to the soldiers, “March on”.
(iv) He entreated his master respectfully to pardon him as it was his first fault.
(v) “Do you really come from America? How do you feel in Pakistan?” Said I the stranger.

    Thanks for the tips you have shared here. Something important I would like to convey is that personal computer memory requirements generally rise along with other advances in the know-how. For instance, when new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there’s usually a corresponding increase in the scale preferences of all personal computer memory as well as hard drive space. This is because the application operated by means of these processors will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technological know-how.

    One thing I have actually noticed is that often there are plenty of fallacies regarding the banking institutions intentions if talking about property foreclosures. One misconception in particular is the fact the bank needs to have your house. The bank wants your hard earned cash, not your home. They want the amount of money they loaned you together with interest. Avoiding the bank will simply draw some sort of foreclosed summary. Thanks for your post.

    Thanks for your post. I would really like to say that the tariff of car insurance differs a lot from one insurance policy to another, since there are so many different issues which bring about the overall cost. For instance, the brand name of the motor vehicle will have a significant bearing on the cost. A reliable ancient family motor vehicle will have a more economical premium compared to a flashy expensive car.

    I do believe that a property foreclosure can have a important effect on the client’s life. Foreclosures can have a 8 to ten years negative effects on a applicant’s credit report. Any borrower having applied for home financing or just about any loans for that matter, knows that a worse credit rating can be, the more hard it is for any decent mortgage. In addition, it could possibly affect a borrower’s capacity to find a good place to lease or rent, if that turns into the alternative housing solution. Thanks for your blog post.

    I have observed that car insurance organizations know the cars and trucks which are at risk of accidents along with risks. Additionally, these people know what sort of cars are inclined to higher risk as well as the higher risk they have got the higher the premium fee. Understanding the straightforward basics involving car insurance will allow you to choose the right kind of insurance policy that will take care of your requirements in case you get involved in any accident. Thank you for sharing your ideas with your blog.
