The only continent that bees do not live on is Antarctica! I understand why they don’t live in Antarctica. It’s too cold! Most of the time, bees are nice to humans. If you do not bother them, they will not bother you. Have fun watching bees this summer.

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:

WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER

You can work all day on a vital project without making any apparent progress into it — even though you have slogged hard, focused all your energies and even give up your lunch break to squeeze in more time. Your colleague, on the other hand, completes the same task in half-a-day and without any errors and leaves office with a smile. So why this huge difference in output? The answer lies in not being able to maximize productivity and minimize timelines. There is a vital difference between working hard and working smart and the letter is the way to accomplishing more in less time. Here are some ways in which you can become a smarter worker.

Plan and Assess: The biggest secret of success of smart workers is planning. Half the job is accomplished if you are able to plan in advance. Assess the work at hand, think about each aspect of
it in detail and then draw up a plan of action—either in your mind or on your paper. It allows you to tackle the job with focus and prevents oversights, wrong turns or misjudgements.

Reading Comprehension 

Set - 12
English Language Reading Comprehension Test - 12  (#cbsenotes)(#eduvictors)


Read the following passage and answer the questions given below:

There are two problems which cause great worry to our educationists, the problem of religious and moral instruction in a land of many faiths and the problem arising out of a large variety of languages. Taking up the education of children, we see that they should be trained to love one another, to be kind and helpful to all, to be tender to the lower animals and to observe and think right. The task of teaching them how to read and write and to count and calculate is important, but it should not make us lose sight of the primary aim of moulding personality in the right way. For this, it is necessary to call into aid, culture, tradition and religion. But in our country we have, in the same school, to look after boys and girls born in different faiths and belonging to families that live diverse ways of life and follow different forms of worship associated with different denominations of religion. It will not do to tread the easy path of evading the difficulty by attending solely to physical culture and intellectual education. We have to evolve a suitable technique and method for serving the spiritual needs of school children professing different faiths. We would thereby promote an atmosphere of mutual respect, a fuller understanding and helpful co-operation among the different communities in our society. Again we must remain one people and we have therefore to give basic training in our schools to speak and understand more languages than one and to appreciate and respect the different religions prevailing in India. It is not right for us in India to be dissuaded from this by considerations as to overtaking the young mind. What is necessary must be done. And it is not in fact too great a burden.
