READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTION THAT FOLLOW.

The Maharaja of Pratibandapuram is the hero of this story. He may be identified as His Highness Jamedar - General, Khiledar - Major, Sata Vyaghra Samhari, Maharajadhiraja Visva Bhuvana Samrat, Sir Jilani Jung Jung Bahadur, M.A.D., A.C.T.C., or C.R.C.K. But this name is often shortened to the Tiger King. I have come forward to tell you why he came to be known as Tiger King. I have no intention of pretending to advance only to end in a strategic withdrawal. Even the threat of a Stuka bomber will not throw me off tract. The Stuka, if it likes, can beat a hasty retreat from my story. Right at the start, it is imperative to disclose a matter of vital importance about the Tiger King. Everyone who reads of him will experience the natural desire to meet a man of his indomitable courage face-to-face. But there is no chance of its fulfilment. As Bharata said to Rama about Dasaratha, the Tiger King has reached that final abode of all living creatures. In other words, the Tiger King is dead. The manner of his death is a matter of extraordinary interest. It can be revealed only at the end of the tale. The most fantastic aspect of his demise was that as soon as he was born, astrologers had foretold that one day the Tiger King would actually have to die.

"The child will grow up to become the warrior of warriors, hero of heroes, champion of champions. But..." they bit their lips and swallowed hard. When compelled to continue, the astrologers came out with it. "This is a secret which should not be revealed at all. And yet we are forced to speak out. The child born under this star will one day have to meet its death." At that very moment a great miracle took place. An astonishing phrase emerged from the lips of the ten-day-old Jilani Jung Jung Bahadur, "O wise prophets!" Everyone stood transfixed in stupefaction. They looked wildly at each other and blinked. "O wise prophets! It was I who spoke."This time there were no grounds for doubt. It was the infant born just ten days ago who had enunciated the words so clearly.

The chief astrologer took off his spectacles and gazed intently at the baby. "All those who are born will one day have to die. We don't need your predictions to know that. There would be some sense in it if you could tell us the manner of that death," the royal infant uttered these words in his little squeaky voice. The chief astrologer placed his finger on his nose in wonder. A baby, barely ten days old, opens its lips in speech! Not only that, it also raises intelligent questions! Incredible! Rather like the bulletins issued by the war office, than facts. The chief astrologer took his finger off his nose and fixed his eyes upon the little prince. "The prince was born in the hour of the Bull. The Bull and the Tiger are enemies, therefore, death comes from the Tiger," he explained. You may think that crown prince Jung Jung Bahadur was thrown into a quake when he heard the word 'Tiger'. That was exactly what did not happen. As soon as he heard it pronounced, the crown prince gave a deep growl. Terrifying words emerged from his lips.

"Let tigers beware!" This account is only a rumour rife in Pratibandapuram. But with hindsight we may conclude it was based on some truth.

The astrologers predicted that __________.

A the newborn prince Jung Jung Bahadur would grow up to be a great warrior
B he would come to be known as the Tiger King
C he would die when he grows and a tiger would be the cause of his death
D both A and C

A 58–year–old grandmother in Massachusetts won one of the biggest prizes in U.S. history—$294 million. If she had taken the 26–year payout, Doris Stevens would have received $11 million a year for 26 years, before taxes. Mrs. Stevens decided to take the lump sum payment. People who take the lump sum get paid within 60 days, but their total payment is reduced by almost 40 percent. Mrs. Stevens' lump sum was $168 million, but luckily, she didn't have to pay federal tax on her winnings. What is Mrs. Stevens going to do with her windfall? "Well, the first thing I'm going to do is to help out my children and grandchildren, of course. Second, I hope to revolutionise the housecleaning industry." A housecleaner for her entire life, Mrs. Stevens says she's going to establish a National Housecleaner Helper Corporation to help other cleaners open their own companies. Her corporation would focus on giving money to various people and research firms to develop more efficient and more powerful housecleaning solvents and tools.
"When was the last time you saw something new in housecleaning?" Mrs. Stevens asked. "They keep claiming they've invented new cleaning products that remove any and all blemishes, but they still haven't invented a product that removes an ordinary ballpoint ink stain from your ordinary white shirt. This industry needs some new products. I hope to revolutionise the cleaning world, so that my 'sisters' will have an easier time of it in the future. We've all spent too much time on our hands and knees. If men had to do housecleaning, you know that they'd be inventing more powerful products every week."
Why did she lose nearly half of her money?

A She took it in one payment.
B She had to pay taxes.
C She wanted to start a business.
D She gave it to her grandchildren.

Read the following passages and choose the correct option to answer the questions that follow :
Newspapers

It is said that in modern age, newspapers have great power. It is not only for daily news that we should read newspapers, but also to increase our general knowledge. A person who does not read newspapers to know what is going on around him, or, in other parts of the world, is like a frog confined to a well. There are good newspapers as well as bad ones. We should avoid reading such newspapers, which indulge in giving sensational and untrue reports. We should not support newspapers which try to incite communal friction. Therefore, instead of picking up cheap newspapers, we should read the newspapers available in our school library.
What is the meaning of the word 'friction' in this context?

A Sensitivity
B Peace
C Disagreement
D None of these
