    CBSE English (Language-and-Literature) Practice Paper 2013, given here.

    1. Read the passage below and write the option that you consider the most appropriate in your answer sheet.

    The idea of euthanasia, of hastening the death of someone from motives of compassion, covers two main situations. The first is where someone is close to death and can be kept alive briefly, with intensive medical care. The official reason for the use of every possible technique on patients, for whom there seems, little hope is that we never know that there is no hope of at least a brief recovery. The second situation, in which it is proposed to end the life of someone who is not expected to die at once from natural causes, is more morally doubtful. In so far as the suggestion may be based on the motive of the quality of life experienced by patients, this is an inadequate approach of human beings. At one extreme we may b dealing with a birth that cannot be called human at all: such a being likely to live at the most for only few hours. Many feel that during this time it ought to be given ordinary nursing care. Brining to an end of the life of say, a spastic child, by the deliberate refusal of the fullest medical care seems morally indefensible.

    3. The people who argue for euthanasia advocate it saying that-----
    a. The patient is not living a qualitative life

    d. It can be defended morally

    4. The words dealing with a birth that cannot be called „human‟ at all implies -----
    a. Humans have no control over birth and death
    b. The person may survive only for a brief period
    c. Doctors are incapable of saving people
