Q. 1- Read the following passage carefully. (8)

Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world. He lit up the world with his invention of electric light. Without him, the world might still be a dark place.

However, the electric light was not his only invention. He also invented phonograph, motion picture camera, and over 1,200 other things. About every two weeks he created something new.

Thomas A. Edison was born in Milan, Ohio, on February 11, 1847. His family moved to Port Huron, Michigan, when he was seven years old. Surprisingly, he attended school for only two months. His mother, a former teacher, taught him a few things, but Thomas was mostly self educated. His natural curiosity led him to start experimenting at a young age with electrical and mechanical things at home. When he was 12 years old, he got his first job. He became a newsboy on a train that ran between Port Huron and Detroit. He set up a laboratory in a baggage car of the train so that he could continue his experiments in his spare time.

Unfortunately, his first work experience did not end well. Thomas was fired when he accidentally set fire to the floor of the baggage car. Thomas then work for five years as a telegraph operator, but he continued to spend much of his time on the job conducting experiments. He got his first patent in 1868 for a voice recorder run by electricity however, the voice recorder was not a success. In 1870, he sold another invention, a stock-ticker for $40000.stock ticker is a machine that automatically prints stock prices on a tape.He was unable to build his first shop in Newark, New Jersey.

Thomas Edison was totally deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in other, but thought of his deafness is a blessing in many ways. It kept conversation short so that he could have more time for work.

Q. 2- Read the following passage carefully.(12)

1- Kiwis originated in China and are also called Chinese gooseberry. The fruit was introduced to New Zealand in 1906 and here it was christened after its national bird. A latecomer in the international market, kiwi cultivation was largely confined to China, Italy, Spain, France, New Zealand and California until recently. In India, it was introduced only a few years ago and still belongs to the exotic fruit category. Despite this, the fruit’s popularity has grown and local varieties have been grown successfully. The fruit is both aesthetically appealing and tasty but its health benefits are often not known.

2- When most foods boast of one or two nutrients, kiwi offers an unusual combination of health promoting substances. For example, it is extremely rich in vitamin C. A single kiwi per day can help meet an adult’s daily requirement for vitamin C. It also offers several other cardio protective nutrients including folic acid, potassium, vitamin E and carotenoids.

3- Kiwis are also rich in pectin, a type of soluble fiber which helps in cholesterol reduction. Kiwi has a significant amount of polyphenols, chlorophyll and glutathione. With only 90 calories, this makes it an immensely nutrient dense food. Thus it has the name, super food.

4- Kiwi consumption can help boost body’s antioxidants as they are a powerhouse of nutrients and substances that help free radicals. Free radicals damage healthy cells of our body, leading to inflammation and a variety of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, etc.

5- Kiwis are a unique non-leafy green source of carotenoid. This group of nutrients has been associated with a decreased risk for cataracts, and muscular degeneration. A recent study showed enhanced iron absorption in women with kiwi intake of four weeks as compared to other fruits. Although low in iron, kiwis have been found to increase iron absorption significantly as compared to other fruits. This could be of great significance in the Indian context where 60 to 70 per centof our women are anemic.
