Reading Comprehension English For Bank Test Series 3

PASSAGE 1

In the second week of August 1998, just a few days after the incidents of bombing the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar-es-Salaam, a high-powered, brain-storming session was held near Washington D.C., to discuss various aspects of terrorism. The meeting was attended by ten of America‘s leading experts in various fields such as germ and chemical warfare, public health, disease control and also by the doctors and the law- enforcing officers. Being asked to describe the horror of possible bio-attack, one of the experts narrated the following gloomy scenario. A culprit in a crowded business centre or in a busy shopping mall of a town empties a test tube containing some fluid, which in turn creates an unseen cloud of germ of a dreaded disease like anthrax capable of inflicting a horrible death within 5 days on any one who inhales it. At first 500,  or so victims feel that they have mild influenza which may recede after a day or two. Then the symptoms return again and their lungs start filling with fluid. They rush to local hospitals for treatment, but the panic-stricken people may find that the medicare services run quickly out of drugs due to excessive demand. But no one would be able to realize that a terrorist attack has occurred. One cannot deny the possibility that the germ involved would be of contagious variety capable of causing an epidemic. The meeting concluded that such attacks, apart from causing immediate human tragedy, would have dire long-term effects on the political and social fabric of a country by way of ending people‘s trust on the competence of the government. The experts also said that the bombs used in Kenya and Tanzania were of the old-fashion variety and involved quantities of high explosives, but new terrorism will prove to be more deadly and probably more elusive than hijacking an aeroplane or a gelignite of previous decades. According to Bruce Hoffman, an American specialist on political violence, old terrorism generally had a  specific manifesto-to overthrow a colonial power or the capitalist system and so on.

These terrorists were not shy about planting a bomb or hijacking an aircraft and they set some limit to their brutality. Killing so many innocent people might turn their natural supporters off. Political terrorists want a lot of people watching but not a lot of people dead. ―Old terrorism sought to change the world while the new sort is often practised by those who believe that the world has gone beyond redemption‖, he added. Hoffman says, ―New terrorism has no long- term agenda but is ruthless in its short-term intentions. It is often just a cacophonous cry of protest or an outburst of religious intolerance or a protest against the West in general and the US in particular. Its perpetrators may be religious fanatics or diehard opponent of a government and see no reason to show restraint. They are simply  intent on inflicting the maximum amount of pain on the victim.‖

PASSAGAE 2

An independent, able and upright judiciary is the hallmark of a free democratic country. Therefore, the process of judicial appointments is of vital importance. At present, on account of the Supreme Court‘s last advisory opinion, the role of the executive and its interference in the appointment of judges is minimal, which, in light of our previous experience, is most welcome. However, there is a strong demand for a National Judicial Commission on the ground of wider participation in the appointment process and for greater transparency. The composition, the role and the procedures of the proposed National Judicial Commission, must be clearly spelt out, lest it be a case of jumping from the frying-pan into the fire. Recently, there has been a lively debate in England on the subject. A judicial commission has been proposed but there are not many takers for that proposal.

In the paper issued this month by the Lord Chancellor‘s Department on judicial appointments, the Lord Chancellor has said, ―I want every vacancy on the Bench to be filled by the best person available. Appointments must and will be made on merit, irrespective of ethnic origin, gender, marital startus, political affiliation, sexual orientation, religion or disability. These are not mere words. They are firm principles. I will not tolerate any form of discrimination.‖ At present, there are hardly any persons from the ethnic minorities manning the higher judiciary and so far not a single woman has made it to the House of Lords. The most significant part of Lord Chancellor‘s paper is the requirement that ―allegations of professional misconduct made in the course of consultations about a candidate for judicial office must be specific and subject to disclosure to the candidate‖. This should go a long way in ensuring that principles of natural justice and fair play are not jettisoned in the appointment process, which is not an uncommon phenomenon.

PASSAGE 1

The happy man is the man who lives objectively, who has free affections and wide interests, who secures his happiness through these interests and affections and through the fact that they in turn make him an object of interest and affection to many others. To be the recipient of affection is a potent cause of happiness, but the man who demands affection is not the man upon whom it is bestowed. The man who receives affection is, speaking broadly, the man who gives it. But it is useless to attempt to give it as a calculation, in the way in which one might lend money at interest, for a calculated affection is not genuine and is not felt to be so by the recipient. What then can a man do who is unhappy because he is encased in self? So long as he continues to think about the causes of his unhappiness, he continues to be self-centered and therefore does not get outside it. It must be by genuine interest, not by simulated interests adopted merely as a medicine. Although this difficulty is real, there is nevertheless much that he can do if he has rightly diagnosed his trouble. If for example, his trouble is due to a sense of sin, conscious or unconscious, he has no reason to feel sinful, and then proceed, to plant this rational conviction in his unconscious mind, concerning himself meanwhile with some more or less neutral activity. If he succeeds in dispelling the sense of sin, it is possible that genuine objective interests will arise spontaneously. If his trouble is self-pity, he can deal with it in the same manner after first persuading himself that there is nothing extraordinarily unfortunate in his circumstances. If fear is his trouble, let him practice exercises designed to give courage. Courage has been recognized from time immemorial as an important virtue, and a great part of the training of boys and young men has been devoted to producing a type of character capable of fearlessness in battle. But moral courage and intellectual courage have been much less studied. They also, however, have their technique. Admit to yourself every day at least one painful truth, you will find it quite useful. Teach yourself to feel that life would still be worth living even if you were not, as of course you are, immeasurably superior to all your friends in virtue and in intelligence. Exercises of this sort prolonged through several years will at last enable can first persuade his conscious mind that he doing, free you from the empire of fear over a very large field.

PASSAGE 2

Management is a set of processes that can keep a complicated system of people and technology running smoothly. The most important aspects of management include planning, budgeting, organizing, staffing, controlling, and problem-solving. Leadership is a set of processes that creates organisations in the first place or adapts them to significantly changing circumstances. Leadership defines what  the future should look like, aligns people with that vision, and inspires them to make it happen despite the obstacles. This distinction is absolutely crucial for our purposes here: Successful transformation is 70 to 90 per cent leadership and only 10 to 30 per cent management. Yet for historical reasons, many organisations today don‘t have much leadership. And almost everyone thinks about the problems here as one of managing change. For most of this century, as we created thousands and thousands of large organizations for the first time in human history, we didn‘t have enough good managers to keep all those burrreaucracies functioning. So many companies and universities developed management programmes, and hundreds and thousands of people were encouraged to learn management on the job. And they did. But, people were taught little about leadership. To some degree, management was emphasized because it‘s easier to teach than leadership. But even more so, management was the main item on the twentieth-century agenda because that‘s what was needed. For every entrepreneur or business builder who was a leader, we needed hundreds of managers to run their ever growing enterprises. Unfortunately for us today, this emphasis on management has often been institutionalized in corporate cultures that discourage employees from learning how to lead. Ironically, past success is usually the key ingredient in producing this outcome. The syndrome, as I have observed it on many occasions, goes like this: success creates some degree of market dominance, which in turn produces much growth. After a while keeping the ever larger organizations under control becomes the primary challenge. So attention turns inward, and managerial competencies are nurtured. With a strong emphasis on management but not on leadership, bureaucracy and an inward focus take over. But with continued success, the result mostly of market dominance, the problem often goes unaddressed and an unhealthy arrogance begins to evolve. All of these characteristics then make any transformation effort much more difficult. Arrogant managers can over- evaluate their current performance and competitive position, listen poorly, and learn slowly. Inwardly focused employees can have difficulty seeing the very forces that present threats and opportunities. Bureaucratic cultures an smother those who want to respond to shifting conditions. And the lack of leadership leaves no fore inside  these organizations to break out of the morass.

Directions : You have one brief passage with live questions. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
What one wonders is the lowest common denominator of Indian culture today. The attractive Hema Malinil The songs of Vividh Bharati Or the mouth-watering Masala Dosa Delectable as these may be each yields pride of place to that false symbol of a new era-the synthetic iber. In less than twenty years the nylon sari and the
ethylene shirt have swept the countryside penetrated to the farthest corners of the land and persuaded every common man women and child that the key to success
in the present day world lies in artificial fibers glass nylon crepe nylon tery mixes polyesters and what have you More than the bicycles the wristwatch or the
transistor radio synthetic clothes have come to represent the first step away from the village square.  The village lass treasures the flashy nylon sari in her
trousseau most dearly the village youth gets a great kick out of his cheap terry cot shirt and trousers the nearest he can approximate to the expensive synthetic sported by his wealthy city bred contemporaries. And the Neorich craze for phoren is nowhere more apparent than in the price that people will pay for smuggled stolen begged borrowed secondhand or thrown away synthetics. Alas even the unique richness of the traditional tribal costume is being fast eroded by the
deadening uniformity of nylon.

Directions :      You have one brief passage with live questions. Read the passage carefully and            choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives. 

Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action

do anything about it. Our civilization is decadent and our language so the argument runs must inevitably share in the general collapse. It follows that any struggle against the abuse of language is a sentimental archaism     like preferring cartels to electric light or handsome cabs to aero planes. Underneath this lies the half-conscious belief that language is a natural growth and not an instrument which we shape for our own purposes. Now it is clear that the decline of a language must ultimately have political and economic causes    It is not simply due to the bad influence of this or that individual writer. But an effect can become a cause     reinforcing the original cause and     producing the same effect in an intensified form    and so on indefinitely. A man may take to drink because he feels himself to be a failure and then fails all the more completely because he drinks. It is rather the same thing that is happening to the English language It becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish     but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts. The point is that the process is reversible. Modern English      especially written English is full of bad habits which spread by imitation and which can be avoided if one is willing to take the necessary trouble. If one gets rid of these habits  one can think more clearly     and to think clearly is a necessary first step towards political regeneration      so that the fight against bad English Is not frivolous and is not the exclusive concern of professional writers.

Q6.

Many people believe that nothing can be done about the

English language because

(a)bad habits spread by imitation.

(b)we live in a decadent civilization.

(c)(3 ) there are too many bad writers.

(d) people are too lazy to change their bad habits.

 

Q7.

The author believes that

(a)it s now too late to do anything about the problem.

(b)language is a natural growth and cannot be shaped

for our own purposes.

(c)the decline in the language can be stopped.

(d)the process of an increasingly bad language cannot be

stopped.

 

Q8. 

The author believes that the first stage towards the

political regeneration of the language would be

(a)taking the necessary trouble to avoid bad habits.

(b)avoiding being frivolous about it.

(c)clear thinking.

(d)for professional writers to help.

 

Q9.

The author believes that

(a)English is becoming ugly.

(b)bad language habits are inevitable.

(c)our thoughts are becoming uglier because we are

making the language uglier

(d)our civilization is decadent so nothing can be done to

stop the decline of the language.

 

Q10.

What causes bad language in the end ?

(a)The bad influence of individual writers.

(b)The imitation of bad language habits.

(c)Political and economic causes.

(d)An assumption that nothing can be done about it.
