PRACTICE QUESTION PAPER No. 2 (2020 21) ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERTURE CLASS X (RATIONALISED SYLLABUS) Time allowed: 3 Hrs. Maximum Marks: 80 General Instructions: 1. This 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. Part A (40 Marks) READING (20 marks) 1. Read the passage given below. 1. A youngster quit Facebook in December after spending over three years on the social networking site. With that one act, he bid a silent adieu to more than 300 contacts that he had added to his account during the period. Like almost everyone from his friends circle, the 20 year old was a regular on the service; visiting it everyday to post photos and status updates. But last week, a new feature on Facebook called Timeline forced him to reconsider the pros and cons of being on the networking site. 2. Everyone has some skeletons in their closet and I am just not comfortable with Facebook digging up and displaying all the facets of my life on a bulletin board, says this youngster who joined the network in July 2007 while he was in Class 11. 3. Facebook, you see, had compressed the time he spent on the site and arranged it in chronological order. And while he initially liked the new, neatly organised scrapbook like feature, he wasn t happy to reveal posts from the past, those that, until recently, were hidden under layers and layers of recent updates. Just clicking on a date on the timeline could transport his friends back in time and enable them to view every embarrassing comment, link or photo he had posted on his profile. 4. I think it s a recipe for disaster, he says. In 2007, I had some wall posts, which seemed appropriate at the time, but now after a lapse of four years, I have moved on and don t want them to be openly displayed for all to see. 5. And he is not alone. Many users, worried about how Facebook activity could possibly affect their offline lives, are choosing to commit Facebook suicide . While some have privacy concerns, others feel that the site that was meant to bring them closer to their friends actually does the opposite it reduces their friendship to something superficial. 6. Poking and liking are not enough to keep a friendship going, says a business analyst. Having quit Facebook three years ago, she prefers meeting her real friends face to face, instead of reading their trite posts online. 7. On Facebook, people hype everyday issues including what they ate and where they went on a daily basis, says this analyst who continues to use Twitter.
