What is it that determines an artist's success in his career ? That is a


question to which it is almost impossible to give a satisfactory answer off-hand.
Many people would be ready to contend that the merit of his work is the
deciding factor, that he succeeds simply because the evidence he affords to his
ability is too convincing to be disputed; and to support their arguments they are
undeniably able to quote as exarnples a number of universally acknowledged
masters who throughout their lives were honoured and held in high regard. Yet
against this contention it is possible to find in art history even more numerous
instances of men not less great, who struggled year after year for a recognition
which did not comg till long after they had died, neglected and disappointed.
Again, if it is by merit alone that success is won, how does it happen that the
chosen favourite of the public is not frequently someone. whose obviously
indifferent capacity does not entitle him to position assigned by his
contemporaries.
Read the following passage and answer the questions that

follow

One day, when Newton was fifty years old and had been hard at work for
more than twenty years studying the theory of light, he went out of his chamber,
leaving his little dog asleep before the fire. On the table lay a heap of
manuscript papers containing all the discoveries which Newton had made
during those twenty years. When his master went out, uprose little dog, jumped
upon the table and overthrew the candle. The papers immediately caught fire
and the labour of twenty years were reduced to a heap of ashes. Newton came
in and saw what had happened. He simply patted the dog on the head with his
usual kindness, although the grief in his heart was $eat. "Oh, Diamond !
Diamond !" He exclaimed, "You littte know the mischief you have done !"
