Read the poem carefully and answer the questions that follow :
Rise, brothers, rise; the wakening skies pray to the morning light, The wind lies asleep in the arms of the dawn like a child that has cried all night. Come, let us gather our nets from the shore, and set our catamarans free, To capture the leaping wealth of the tide, for we are the kings of the sea!
No longer delay, let us hasten away in the track of the seagull’s call, The sea is our mother, the cloud is our brother, the waves are our comrades all. What though we toss at the fall of the sun where the hand of the sea-god drives? He who holds the storm by the hair, will hide in his breast our lives.
Sweet is the shade of the coconut glade, and the scent of the mango grove, And sweet are the sands at the full o’ the moon with the sound of the voices we love; But sweeter, O brothers, the kiss of the spray, and the dance of the wild foam’s glee; Row, brothers row to the edge of the verge, where the low sky mates with the sea.
–Sarojini Naidu

The answer will be among because it is impossible to go inside the children and distribute the sweets. Also, distributing between the children would mean distributing sweets while the person is standing between the students. The answer cannot be on because that would mean that a person would be distributing sweets while standing on the children. Thus, the only logical answer left is among, which would mean that the sweets are being distributed only to the children.

The passage and answer the questions that follow.
RAINBOWS
Rainbows are often seen when the sun comes out after or during a rainstorm. Rainbows are caused when sunlight shines through drops of water in the sky at a particular angle. When white sunlight enters a raindrop, it exits the raindrop a different colour. When light exits lots of different raindrops at different angles, it produces the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet that you see in a rainbow. Together, these colours are known as the spectrum. These colours can sometimes be seen in waterfalls and fountains as well. Did you know that there are double rainbows also? In a double rainbow, light reflects twice inside water droplets and forms two arcs. In most double rainbows, the colours of the top arc are opposite from those in the bottom arc. In other words, the order of colours starts with purple on top and ends with the red on bottom. Rainbows sometimes appear as white arcs at night. These rainbows are called moonbows. Moonbows are caused by moonlight shining through drops of water.

What is the colour of a moonbow?

AYellow
BWhite
CGrey
DBlack

Once, Gandhi was on an expedition to collect funds from various cities and villages for an organization to help the poor. He went to several places and finally reached Orissa. He organized a meeting in Orissa. There, he gave a speech to the public, requesting them to give him funds for the organization. At the end of his speech, a very old woman with bent back, tattered clothing, white hair, and shrunken skin got up. She requested the volunteers to allow her to reach Gandhi. However, the volunteers stopped her. She did not give up. She fought with them and reached Gandhi. She touched the feet of Gandhi. Then she took out a copper coin kept in the folds of her saree and placed it at his feet. Then the old lady left the stage. Gandhi very carefully took the coin. The treasurer of the organization for the poor asked Gandhi for the copper coin, but he refused to give it. “I keep cheques worth thousands of rupees,” said the treasurer. “Yet you won’t trust me with a copper coin!” Gandhi said, “This copper coin is worth much more than those thousands. If a man has several lakhs and he gives away a thousand or two, it doesn’t mean much.” Yes, the coin might have been the only thing that the poor old woman possessed. She did not even have proper clothes and could not afford good food. Still, she gave everything she had. That is why Gandhi regarded the coin as very precious. Questions: 1. Identify any 4 adverbs 2. Write a sentence with a conjunction and identify it's type

The Holiness of Saint Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc was a young girl of seventeen. She believed that if France could put together a strong army, it could free itself from foreign rule. France was at that time ruled by Prince Henry of England. Joan was a simple, uneducated daughter of a farmer. Girls those days did not have the freedom they have now. It was amazing that a simple girl like Joan should have such ambitious ideas. Her conviction that her country could be free was so strong that she met Prince Charles of France and convinced him that he was the rightful ruler of the country. After a great deal of persuasion, Joan of Arc convinced Prince Charles to allow her to command a force to relieve Orleans. Prince Charles gave his permission and Joan of Arc led an army of French soldiers to the city of Orleans which had been conquered by the English. So great was the courage of her conviction that this young girl whipped up tremendous enthusiasm and patriotism among her soldiers. They fought fearlessly against the English. The English soldiers were taken aback by the fervour of the attacking French soldiers and retreated from Orleans. After this grand victory, she persuaded Charles to be crowned as "King of France". She led the armies of France in many other campaigns after this and restored her country’s national pride. Joan of Arc thus achieved what had seemed an impossible task through her courage and determination. She continued to lead the French army from victory to victory but was captured in an encounter in 1420 and handed over to the English. The English put her through a trial which was a mockery of justice and burned her at the stake as a witch. The French people adore Joan as their greatest national heroine. She was made a saint in 1920.
