Q.2. Make the precis of the following passage and suggest a suitable heading. (20+2=22)

Culture, in human societies, has two main aspects; an external, formal aspect and an inner, ideological aspect. The external forms of culture, social or artistic, are merely an organized expression of its inner ideological aspect, and both are an inherent component of a given social structure. They are changed or modified when this structure. They are changed and modified when this structure is changed or modified and because of this organic link they also help and influence such changes in their parent organism. Cultural Problems, therefore, cannot be studied or understood or solved in isolation from social problems, i.e. problems of political and economic relationships. The cultural problems of the underdeveloped countries, therefore, have to be understood and solved in the light of larger perspective, in the context of underlying social problems. Very broadly speaking, these problems are primarily the problems of arrested growth; they originate primarily from long years of imperialist-Colonialist domination and the remnants of a backward outmoded social structure. This should not require much elaboration European Imperialism caught up with the countries of Asia, Africa or Latin America between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. Some of them were fairly developed feudal societies with ancient traditions of advanced feudal culture. Others had yet to progress beyond primitive pastoral tribalism. Social and cultural development of them all was frozen at the point of their political subjugation and remained frozen until the coming of political independence. The culture of these ancient feudal societies, in spite of much technical and intellectual excellence, was restricted to a small privileged class and rarely intermingled with the parallel unsophisticated folk culture of the general masses. Primitive tribal culture, in spite of its child like beauty, had little intellectual content. Both feudal and tribal societies living contagiously in the same homelands were constantly engaged in tribal, racial and religious or other feuds with their tribal and feudal rivals. Colonialist – imperialist domination accentuated this dual fragmentation, the vertical division among different tribal and national groups, the horizontal division among different classes within the same tribal or national groups. This is the basic ground structure, social and cultural, bequeathed to the newly liberated countries by their former over lords.

Q.3 Read the following passage and answer the question that follows. Use your own language. (20)

The civilization of China, as everyone knows, is based upon the teaching of Confucius, who flourished five hundred years before Christ. Like the Greeks and Romans, he did not think of human society as naturally progressive; on the contrary, he believed that in remote antiquity rulers had been wise, and the people had been happy to a degree which the degenerate present could admire but hardly achieve. This, of course, was a delusion. But the practical result was that Confucius, like other teachers of antiquity, aimed at creating a stable society, maintaining a certain level of excellence, but not always striving after new successes. In this, he was more successful than any other men who ever lived. His personality has been stamped on Chinese civilization from his day to our own. During his lifetime the Chinese occupied only a small part of present-day China, and were divided into a number of warring states. During the next three hundred years they established themselves throughout what is now China proper, and founded an empire exceeding in territory and population any other that existed until the last fifty years. In spite of barbarian invasions, Mongol and Manchu dynasties, and occasional longer or shorter periods of chaos and civil war, the Confucian system survived, bringing with it art and literature and a civilized way of life. A system which has had this extra ordinary power of survival must have great merits, and certainly deserves our respect and consideration. It is not a religion, as we understand the word,because it is not associated with the supernatural or with mystical beliefs. It is a purely ethical system, but its ethics, unlike those of Christianity, are not too exalted for ordinary men to practice. In essence, what Confucius teaches is something very like the old-fashioned ideal of a ‘gentleman’ as it existed in the eighteenth century. One of his sayings will illustrate this: ‘The true gentleman is never contentious … he courteously salutes his opponents before taking up his position … so that even when competing he remains a true gentleman’.

  1. Why do you think the author calls Confucius’ belief about the progress of human society as a delusion?
  2. How did Confucius’ though affect China to develop into a stable and ‘Proper’ China?
  3. Why does the author think that Confucian system deserves respect and admiration?
  4. Why does the author call Confucian system a purely ethical system and not a religion?
  5. Briefly argue whether you agree or disagree to Confucius’ ideal of a gentleman?

Q4. Write a comprehensive note (250-300 words) on any ONE of the following: (20)
(i) Revolution versus Evolution (ii) Let us agree to disagree in an agree-able way (iii) Say not, struggle not availth (iv) Beneath every cloud there is always a silver thing (v) Is democracy an ideal form of government?

Q.5. (a) Use ONLY FOUR of the following in sentences which illustrate their meaning: (Extra attempt shall not be considered). (04)
(i) The milk of human kindness (ii) A rule of thumb (iii) Out and out (iv) To wash one’s dirty linen in public (v) To pay through the nose (vi) To lose face

Q.5. (b) Use ONLY FOUR of the following pair of words in sentences which illustrate their meaning: (Extra attempt shall not be considered). (04)
(i) Adjoin, Adjourn (ii) Allay, Ally (iii) Bases, Basis (iv) Click, Clique (v) Distract, Detract (vi) Liable, Libel

Q.6. (a) Correct ONLY FIVE of the following. An extra attempt shall not be considered. (05)
1. My boss agreed with my plan.
2. If he was here, he would be as wise as he was during the war.
3. We have amusements in form of music.
4. You get hungry for all the work you have to do
5. We were glad for being there.
6. I prefer the fifth act of Shakespeare King Lear the best of all.
7. After finishing my lecture, the bell rang.
8. We needed not to be afraid.

Q.6. (b) Change the narration from direct to indirect speech. (DO ONLY FIVE) An extra attempt shall not be considered.
1. “If I had spoken to my father as you speak to me he’d have beaten me,” he said to me.
2. “How far is it”? I said, “and how long will take me to get there”?
3. “Do you know anybody in this area or could you get a reference from your landlady?“ he asked me.
4. She told me to look where I was going as the road was full of holes and very badly lit.
5. He wanted to know if I was going to concert and suggested that we should make up a party and go together.
6. He said, I must’nt mind if the first one wasn’t any good.
7. “What a nuisance! Now I’ll have to do it all over again”, he exclaimed.
8. “I must go to the dentist tomorrow”, he said. “ I have an appointment”.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas here. The other point is that any time a problem takes place with a personal computer motherboard, individuals should not consider the risk connected with repairing this themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to permanent damage to an entire laptop. It is usually safe to approach the dealer of a laptop for any repair of that motherboard. They have technicians who’ve an experience in dealing with mobile computer motherboard problems and can make the right diagnosis and accomplish repairs.

    Thanks for the article. My spouse and i have often noticed that many people are wanting to lose weight because they wish to show up slim in addition to looking attractive. Nevertheless, they do not usually realize that there are other benefits for you to losing weight also. Doctors say that over weight people come across a variety of diseases that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. Fortunately that people who’re overweight as well as suffering from different diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their illnesses by simply losing weight. You possibly can see a continuous but marked improvement in health if even a small amount of weight reduction is reached.

    A lot of of the things you claim happens to be astonishingly precise and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This article truly did turn the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes.

    Along with every little thing which appears to be building within this specific area, all your viewpoints are generally very radical. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not give credence to your whole suggestion, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to us that your commentary are actually not totally validated and in simple fact you are generally yourself not entirely convinced of your assertion. In any event I did appreciate examining it.

    Thanks for the a new challenge you have exposed in your text. One thing I’d like to touch upon is that FSBO relationships are built with time. By launching yourself to the owners the first few days their FSBO will be announced, prior to a masses get started calling on Wednesday, you produce a good association. By sending them resources, educational supplies, free records, and forms, you become a great ally. Through a personal affinity for them and also their situation, you make a solid connection that, on most occasions, pays off once the owners opt with an adviser they know and trust — preferably you actually.

    Interesting post here. One thing I would like to say is the fact most professional career fields consider the Bachelors Degree like thejust like the entry level requirement for an online course. Even though Associate Diplomas are a great way to get started, completing the Bachelors opens up many opportunities to various professions, there are numerous on-line Bachelor Diploma Programs available coming from institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another issue is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online types of their qualifications but usually for a drastically higher cost than the organizations that specialize in online diploma plans.

    Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I should also believe is always that credit cards presenting a 0 interest often bait consumers in with zero rate of interest, instant endorsement and easy over-the-internet balance transfers, but beware of the main factor that will void the 0 easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and also throw one out into the very poor house rapid.

  • November 19, 2023 at 7:21 am

    Another thing I’ve noticed is the fact for many people, bad credit is the reaction of circumstances beyond their control. By way of example they may be really saddled with illness so they really have higher bills going to collections. It would be due to a job loss or maybe the inability to go to work. Sometimes breakup can truly send the money in the wrong direction. Thanks sharing your notions on this weblog.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
