Read the passage and answer the question that Follow.

Palaeontologists in Egypt have discovered a 43-million-year-old fossil of a whale species with four legs that would have been capable of walking on land as well as hunting in water.
The previously unknown species belongs to the Protecetidae, a group of extinct creatures that were part of an evolutionary change in which mammals went from being land-dwelling herbivores to sea-dwelling carnivores over 10 million years.
The 3 m-long predator has been named ‘Phiomicetus anubis' after the ancient Egyptian God of death, not just for its assumed hunting abilities but also because its skull resembles the God's jackal head.
Weighing about 600 kg, it had powerful jaw muscles and amphibious skills that would have let it prey upon creatures such as crocodiles and small mammals, as well as the calves of other whale species, the researchers said.
"It was a successful, active predator," said Abdullah Gohar, a graduate student of vertebrate palaeontology at Mansoura University. "I think it was the god of death for most animals that lived alongside it."
The researchers spent over a decade studying fossilised fragments found in an area in the Fayum Depression southwest of Cairo that is known as the Valley of the Whales because of the marine fossils unearthed there.


The most unique feature of the fossil of whale was ___________.

Ahead like Gods
Bbeing four legged
Cbeing found in Egypt
Da strong tail

Read the following story and answer the questions that follow :
CHEEKY CHIKY

Cheeky Chiky was very upset today. Though Dusshera and Diwali were nearing, but the children were not at all showing enthusiasm. The society had unanimously decided that there would be no bursting of crackers this year. This was enough to dampen the spirits of the children. Wearing new clothes and having yummy sweetmeats was what they did on every festival, but Diwali's major fun was in crackers; and the elders took that away from the kids.
Cute Kate remarked, "The elders never think about pollution by vehicles and are banning our 'phuljharis'. Don't they know that even their vehicles cause pollution?"
In the meantime, Aunt Polly arrived there carrying a big bag over her shoulder. Aunt Polly took out a beautiful packet from her bag. To the children's excitement, it contained some crackers. But, it was not all.Aunt had brought one more packet! Children saw that there were some plants in it.
What is the meaning of 'enthusiasm'?

A Sadness
B To lessen
C Great interest
D Crackers

I don't think it would be A because it doesn't really make sense. The sentence's sense goes in which it would be framed as 'Jayanti's holidays were being enjoyed by Jayanti since Saturday'

Ans 3:

Class : Class 7
Shouldn't it be 'A'?

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Nobody likes travelling in a hot car, especially in the summer. If you are lucky you may have AC, but many cars either don't have ACs that work or don't have them at all. So, like most people when you get hot and stuffy you open the window to let in the passing air.
Now, what do you do if you are in an airplane? Well the easiest answer is to ask a crew member or try to reach the AC yourself. They are quite high on the ceiling of an airplane, which makes it difficult to reach for most people.
Recently, there have been two examples of what can happen when new travellers try to cool themselves down. One man said he had been feeling hot and needed some air for hours on a long flight. He got so warm that he decided to pull the handle next to him and below the window. He thought this would wind the window down. What happened next was a big shock. The whole door fell away from the plane. He panicked, but the plane landed safely, and no one was hurt. He got arrested and given a very big fine of around $11,000.
A second man did something very similar but this time it was before the plane had even taken off. He said that he needed a bit of fresh air before they left so that he wouldn't feel sick on the journey. The crew removed him from the plane and gave him a smaller fine of $500. The airplane was delayed by only 1 hour.
The moral behind these stories is probably that one should always read the instructions or ask someone for help in situations that are new and confusing. I think we all get baffled sometimes when we find ourselves in brand new places. It's quite fun!

It is fun to do new things, but they can be _____________ sometimes.

Asatisfying
Bamused
Cbruising
Dconfusing
