Directions (Q. 1-5): Read the following passages and answer the questions that follow.
Ever since the dawn of civilization, persons in power have tried to control education. During the
Christian Era, the ecclesiastics controlled the institution of education and diffused among the people the
gospel of the Bible and religious teachings. They taught the poor people to be meek and to earn their bread
with the sweat of their brow, while the priests and the landlords lived in luxury. During the Renaissance,
education passed from the clutches of the priests into the hands of the prince. It became more secular. Thus,
under the control of the monarch, education began to preach the infallibility of the monarch which meant
that the king could do no wrong. With the advent of Industrial Revolution, education no longer remaining
the privilege of the baron class, but was thrown open to the new rich merchant class. The philosophy in
vogue during this period was that of baissez Faire restricting the function of the state to merely keeping
law and order, while in actual practice the law of the jungle prevailed in the form of free competition and the
survival of the fittest.

Directions (Q. 51-55): Read the following passage carefully and choose the best answer to each
question out of the four given alternatives.
Just as there are basic laws and principles that control your physical world, there are basic laws and
principles that control your mental world as well. Before you can hope to operate your human success
system properly, you need to know the basic laws that determine your behaviour and affect your very being.
In this regard, you have no choice. You cannot decide to bypass these laws in all mental working and
will always operate successfully to bring about the results you keep telling your mind you want.
The human mind is very much like a sophisticated electronic computer. When you acquire any new
piece of advanced equipment, you normally take some time to carefully read the manual and basic operating
instructions before turning it on to make it work. Operating instructions are important. They tell you how to
get maximum performance out of the device, taking into account the specific tasks it was designed to
perform. It should be the same with operating your own miraculous built-in machine.
4 KALINGA ACADEMY
You were born as the most advanced living organism in the world, yet you lack the precise knowledge
to get the most out of your internal success system. Of Course, your automatic goal-stirring mechanism is
always successful. But it is properly more successful at getting you what you dont want in life rather than
what you do want. Understanding the mental laws will help you get what you do want, more often.
51. We need to know the basic laws that govern our behaviour patterns in order to
1. Be efficient in all we undertake 2. Manage our human success system properly
3. Know right from wrong 4. Emerge triumphant in all situations
52. These basic laws influence all mental workings and always operate successfully to achieve
1. What we cherish most 2. What we attempt to do
3. What we tell our minds we want 4. What we want in our subconscious
53. For all machines, operating instructions are important because
1. They teach us the basics about the machine
2. They tell us the machines value
3. They familiarize us with it
4. They teach us how to use the machine in a manner as to get the best possible results out of it.
54. According to the passage, the most advanced living organism in the word is
1. An electronic computer 2. Only the reader of the passage 3. The writer himself 4. Mankind
55. The automatic goal strirring mechanism of our body is successful mostly
1. In keeping us happy 2. In achieving what we dont want in life
3. In keeping alive the competitive spirit in us 4. In always encouraging us.
