Question 1 – C

English Comprehension:

For children too there is no greater instrument of education than the conversation they hear at home. It is unjust to them when nothing is spoken before them but the trifles of dress, the gossip of the neighborhood, the cares of the household which press too heavily upon the parents, the follies and vanities of the world, which are hardly apprehended by their innocent minds. They are naturally initiative, and a great part of their character is derived from their parents. If there is no life or mirth in a house, the children of the house will be commonly dull and stupid; and if they never hear subjects rationally discussed, they will not learn to think or reason; if the world in which we live is allowed to pass unheeded by, they will be without interest, listless and unobservant. This home education which they acquire insensibly is as important as the more formal work of the school, and it is as much our duty to provide food for their minds as for their bodies. They do not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth.

1) What sort of conversation does the author think good for the children?

A) They don’t play. B) They watch TV. C) Due to lack of life in house. D) Due to education.

3) What conversation helps children to think and reason?

A) Rational B) Irrational. C) Dull. D) Spiritual.

4) What should parents do to prevent children becoming “without interest, listless and unobservant”?

A) Should play with them. B) Should not allowed the ‘world to pass unheeded by. C) Should take interest in them. D) Should take care of them.
