There are three main groups of oils-animal, vegetable and mineral. Great quantities of animal oil come from whales, those enormous creatures of the sea, which are the largest of the animals remaining in the world. To protect the whales from the cold of the Arctic seas, nature has provided them with a thick covering of fat, called blubber. When the whale is killed, the blubber is stripped off and boiled down. It produces a great quantity of oil which can be made into food for human consumption. A few other creatures yield oil, but none so much as the whale. The livers of the cod and-halibut, two kinds of fish, yield nourishing oil. Both cod liver oil and halibut oil are given to sick children and other Invalids who need certain vitamins. Vegetable oil has been known from very old times. No household can get on without it, for it is used in cooking. Perfumes may be made from the oils of certain flowers.

Q-3 Read the passage carefully and make notes on it and also give a suitable title.

There are about 980 flying mammals referred to as bats. They are the only real flying mammals on Earth. Most bats feed on a diet of insects. Some feed on flowers and fruits, but the most interesting are the vampire bats of the Americas, which suck the blood of large birds and other mammals. Unfortunately, these vampire bats are capable of transmitting rabies and are for this reason considered dangerous. The other types of bats are of no danger to man and are even considered helpers of nature by way of their diet which helps control the insect population in various areas of the world. Although the misunderstood bat has represented fear and terror in 3/6 west, it is seen as a sign of good luck and long life in the east.

Q-5 Write an essay on any one of the topics in about 150 words.

(A) Terrorism

(B) The Pollution Problem

(C) Your Ideal Person

(D) Science and Technology

Ans.(A) Terrorism

1. Introduction, 2. Causes, 3. Bad effects, 4. Conclusion.

 Introduction –Terrorism is the use of violence by a small group of people to get its demands fulfilled. Every morning we read in the newspapers about the cruel acts of terrorism committed by terrorists. Sometimes it is a murder of a number of innocent persons, sometimes it is the murder of some eminent leader or journalist. Reports of bomb explosions on the crowded platforms or in the main markets of the big cities are often heard and seen. Fish plates are removed from railway tracks causing many railway accidents. No person is safe these days due to this great evil of terrorism.

Causes – Terrorism is an outcome of some people's selfish motives. There are some narrow minded people who on regional, linguistic and other basis want to divide our nation into small compartments. They want to establish their supremacy. Nowadays some of the politicians are also responsible for increasing terrorism. They don't want the problems to be sorted out. Due to lack of ethics in Indian politics, vote banks of different parties exist on the basis of caste, creed, religion etc. Hence they want the problems to continue.

Bad effects –Terrorism is growing day by day. Thousands of innocent persons have met their tragic end in the Punjab due to it. In many other places also besides the Punjab, the terrorists have made life a hell for people. The terrorists caused serious train accidents in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Communal terrorism has appeared again in the new shape. Thus the terrorists throw bombs on peaceful religious processions in order to create terror and disturb the normal life. Such acts are harmful to the society. People are so terrified that they hesitate in going out of their houses. They fear to assemble in the marriage parties. Man has lost faith in man. We are afraid of travelling in the aeroplanes due to these terrorists.


If we want to live in peace, we should face terrorism boldly. Government should take the strongest action against these people as they are the greatest enemies of the human society. Peace and prosperity can prevail if terrorism is ended. To make the world free from terrorism and make it a happier place to live in we have to rise above all narrow loyalties. Not only in terrorism affected areas but in other parts also routine and higher activities of mankind get disrupted. Every year lot of money, energy and time is spent on it so the governments of such countries should take some decisive actions to root out the problem of terrorism on permanent basis.
