Q.NO. 17 to 19. Read the following passage and answer the question that follow.
Most human beings are awake during the day and sleep at night. Owls live the opposite way. Owls are nocturnal. This means that they sleep all day and stay awake at night. Because owls are nocturnal, this means they must eat at night. But finding food in the dark is difficult. To help them, they have special eyes and ears. Owls also have very large eyes. These eyes absorb more light than normal. Since there is little light during night, it is helpful to be able to absorb more of it. This helps owls find food in the dark. Owls also have very good hearing. Even when owls are in the trees, they can hear small animals moving in the grass below. This helps owls catch their prey even when it is very dark. Like owls, mice are also nocturnal animals. Mice have an excellent sense of smell. This helps them find food in the dark. Being nocturnal helps mice to hide from many different animals that want to eat them. Most of the birds, snakes and lizards that like to eat mice sleep at night – expect, of course, owls!

Nos. 39 –44) that follow by selecting the correct/most appropriate options : That time of year thou mayst in me behold, When yellow leaves, or none, or few do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou seest the twilight of such day, As after sunset fadeth in the west, Which by and by black night doth take away, Death’s second self that seals up all in rest. In me thou seest the glowing of such fire, That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the death-bed, whereon it must expire, Consumed with that which it was nourished by. This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong, To love that well, which thou must leave ere long.
