1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow: On his return from South Africa, Gandhi's first Ashram in India was established in the Kochrab area of Ahmedabad on 25 May 1915. The Ashram was then shifted on 17 June 1917 to a piece of open land on the banks of the river Sabarmati. Reasons for this shift included: he wanted to do some experiments in living e.g. farming, animal husbandry, cow breeding, Khadi and related constructive activities, for which he was in search of this kind of barren land; mythologically, it was the ashram site of Dadhichi Rishi who had donated his bones for a righteous war; it is between a jail and a crematorium as he believed that a satyagrahi has to invariably go to either place. The Sabarmati Ashram (also known as Harijan Ashram) was home to Mohandas Gandhi from 1917 until 1930 and served as one of the main centres of the Indian freedom struggle. Originally called the Satyagraha Ashram, reflecting the movement toward passive resistance launched by the Mahatma, the Ashram became home to the ideology that set India free. Sabarmati Ashram named for the river on which it sits, was created with a dual mission. To serve as an institution that would carry on a search for truth and a platform to bring together a group of workers committed to non-violence who would help secure freedom for India.

By conceiving such a vision Gandhi and his followers hoped to foster a new social construct of truth and non-violence that would help to revolutionize the existing pattern of like. While at the Ashram, Gandhi formed a school that focused on manual labour, agriculture, and literacy to advance his efforts for self-sufficiency. It was also from here on the 12 March 1930 that Gandhi launched the famous Dandi march 241 miles from the Ashram (with 78 companions) in protest of the British Salt Law, which taxed Indian salt in an effort to promote sales of British salt in India. This mass awakening filled the British jails with 60,000 freedom fighters. Later the government seized their property, Gandhi, in sympathy with them, responded by asking the Government to forfeit the Ashram. Then Government, however, did not oblige. He had by now already decided on 22 July 1933 to disband the Ashram, which later became asserted place after the detention of many freedom fighters, and then some local citizens decided to preserve it. On 12 March 1930 he vowed that he would not return to the Ashram until India won independence. Although this was won on 15 August 1947, when India was declared a free nation, Gandhi was assassinated in January 1948 and never returned.

2. Read the following passage given below and answer the questions that follow:

1. When Man first began to settle down, to live in groups in villages and to cultivate land, he found that he had to learn many new skills. One of these new skills was the ability to measure, to count and to calculate. He had to be able to count the animals he possessed. He had to be able to make simple measurements to enable him to build and to mark out the boundaries of his land; he had to be able to measure the passing of time and record it; and he had to trade. Therefore he began to think in terms of length, breadth, time and weight.

2.For many years, units of measurement were of a simple kind. For example, if Man had to measure, he used a part of his body as a unit. As a result, these units often differed from person to person. Therefore when Man settled down, the need for standardization arose. 

3.Before Man settled down, his life was not governed by the seasons, nor did he have to know what time of the day it was. Once he settled down to the agricultural way of life, he had to be able to calculate the change of seasons on which agriculture depended. So Man began to measure time, and first he looked for convenient units of measurements, one of which was the day. No one knows when Man first began to divide the day into twenty-four hours, and the hour into sixty minutes. But we know that Ptolemy, the famous Egyptian, used and recorded these divisions in the second century A.D. In order to calculate the passing of time, it was necessary for Man to record the number of days in each season. This was done by making a mark for each day on a tree trunk or on a piece of stick.

4.The next step was for Man to find longer units of time. He had observed the gradual changes in the shape of the moon. He discovered that from one full-moon to the next it took twenty eight days. And so he had another unit of time-a month. Then he observed that, if he added two days to some of the months, twelve of them nearly covered the four seasons which followed each other. This was the first simple calendar.
