Direction (Q. No. 66-70) : Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option :
Happy is the man who acquires habit of reading when he is young. He has secured a life-long source of pleasure, instruction and inspiration. Ruskin calls books, “King’s treasures”-treasuries filled, not with gold and silver and precious stones but with riches much more valuable than these – knowledge, noble thoughts and high ideals. Poor indeed is the man who does not read and empty is his life.
The blessings which the reading habit confers on its possessor are many. Provided we choose the right kind of books. Reading gives the highest kind of pleasure. Some books we read simply for pleasure and amusement. For example, good novels. And novels and books of imagination must have their place in everybody’s reading.
But to read nothing but books of fiction is like eating nothing but cakes and sweetmeats. As we need plain, wholesome food for the body, so we must have serious reading for the mind. And here we can choose according to our taste. There are many noble books on history, biography, philosophy, religion, travel and science which we ought to read and which will give us not only pleasure but an education.
Nor should poetry be neglected, for poetry gives us noble thoughts and beautiful imaginings clothed in lovely and musical language.
