6672 5x1=5

One morning the Giant was lying awake in bed. He heard some lovely music. It sounded so sweet to his ears that he thought it must be the king’s musicians passing by. It was only a little linnet singing outside the window, but it was so long since he had heard a bird sing in his garden that it seemed to him to be the most melodious music in the world. Then the Hail stopped dancing over his head, and the North wind ceased roaring and a delicious perfume came to him through the open casement. “I believe the spring has come at last”, said the Giant, and he jumped out of bed and looked out. Questions :



Where was the Giant lying ?


What did the Giant hear ?


What is the name of the bird that was singing the song ?


From where did the bird sing ?


Has the spring come at last ?

SECTION - C (Occupational Competency - Job Skills) (Marks : 15)




Write a summary of the following passage in about 100 words :


Sparrows are found in many parts of the world and they are of several kinds. The one that is the best known to us is the house - sparrow. But there is also the hedge - sparrow that makes its nest in hedges and bushes. A noisy bird, the house - sparrow has its own song, mainly made up of a series of calls and twitters. It makes its nest in some hole or some niche in the house. This nest is no more than an arrangement, not a very tidy one of paper and straw, which may be lined with wool and hair. The hedge - sparrow is more slender than the house - sparrow. It is in brown, black and bluish - green colour. It also sings, often a warbling song. Like the house - sparrow, it hops on the ground and makes its own untidy nest. Sparrows eat seeds of many different kinds but much more than seeds, they feed on insects. They lay about one to six eggs at a time.
