Read the following story and answer the questions that follow :
The milkmaid and her pail

A milkmaid was on her way to the market. On her head she carried a large pail of milk. As she walked along she thought of all the money she would have as soon as she sold the milk. "I shall buy hens from Farmer Brown," she thought, "and they will lay eggs every day. I will sell the eggs to the parson's wife. She will pay me well. With the money from the eggs, I will buy myself a new frock and bonnet. What colour shall they be? I think green - a lovely green, for that colour becomes me best. When I go to market, I will wear my new clothes. All the young men will want to speak to me, of course, but I shall pretend not to see them. When they follow me, I shall walk proudly on. I'll toss my head-like this." And with that, she tossed her head. The pail slipped off from her head, and the milk spilled all over the ground.
The milkmaid brought her empty pail and her sad tale home to her mother. "Ah, my daughter," said her mother, "Do not count your chickens before they are hatched."
Where was the milkmaid going?

A To sell eggs to the parson's wife.
B To buy hens from Farmer Brown.
C To the market to sell a pail of milk.
D To the market to buy a lovely dress.

The answer given is wrong. A verb in a sentence can't be transitive and intransitive at the same time. The given sentence is a complex sentence as follows:Sheenu was crying all day long (because) Mom had given the cookie to her sister, Shuchi.Here is "because" is understood. Here "was crying" is an intransitive verb and the whole of the 2nd part ("Mom had .... Shuchi") as adverbial clause of the principal clause "Sheenu was crying all day long"

The given verb is both transitive and intransitive. Intransitive because till before comma the object is not mentioned and transitive because the given object is mentioned after the comma. So with respect to the whole sentence both transitive and intransitive verb stand as the answer. Option C is the correct answer.

READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
The exhibition entitled 'Images of Nature' focuses on the marriage of science and art, two disciplines that we tend to separate today. Despite this, it manages to emphasise the importance of the combination of the two. There is a clear sense of how accurate drawing and imaging has aided in scientific observation, interpretation, and communication. However, the items on display are largely historical and there is no evidence of development of imaging techniques used for scientific analysis. In the distant past, scientists will have sketched their specimens and perhaps analysed these images when away from the object. Nowadays they will have a host of ways to preserve the specimen and be able to analyse them using advanced scientific techniques and instruments.
There are two exhibits that were particularly strong when it comes to conveying the importance of scientific imaging. There is an image of a dodo, an extinct bird that we know little about today. This image shows that sometimes, artistic flair can lead to inaccurate scientific interpretation. Yet this does not detract from the fact that, had the original images not been drawn, we would know even less about the dodo. The cartography exhibit, shows the first geological survey of England. It is important to remember that accurate mapping is in fact very modern and is still under development. Today we rely on maps and location accuracy, but it has not always been possible to access this information with ease. Looking at an old and inaccurate map can make people understand the advances that have been made and get an idea of how difficult they may have been to achieve.
The exhibition feels more like an art gallery than many of the other, more interactive exhibitions with high fact density. This is a good thing as it adds an element of diversity to the museum as a whole. The exhibition is highly visually appealing and accentuates how science can be artistic and how art can be useful in science. It may however benefit from a greater element of scientific description applied to some of the images. In short, this exhibition is quite a contrast to other at the museum, both in style and content. There are videos that do allow for further exploration of the exhibits for those that are more interested and able to spend the time watching them. The videos also offer insight into the life of researchers at the museum which makes the scientific studies they are doing feel more accessible. The audience is able to associate the science with individuals, which is another contemporary and attractive aspect of the exhibition. There are fewer interactive elements and buttons to press than in other parts of the museum, yet the drawing exhibit is highly innovative and very in keeping with the exhibition ambience. Here, people have been asked to draw their favourite part of the exhibit and the audiences pictures on display show that people of many ages had been inspired to draw their own images of nature. For the curator, this deftly marries audience participation and a focus on detail that is remarkably simple and in many cases, has led to repeat visits so patrons can see their own work displayed.
The real skill of the curators of the space is that fact that they have turned a complex, detailed historical genre into something that is easy to understand and approachable to all ages. This is something that runs through the core belief of the organisation and I think they have managed rather deftly navigate the pitfalls thus creating an astonishingly clear view of the topic.
What part of the exhibition is still changing?

A Map making
B Videography
C Animal drawing
D Preservation
