Q.No.2: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end.
            Real beauty is as much an affair of the inner as of shape, of colour, of surface texture. The jar may be empty or tenanted by spiders, full of honey or stinking slime-it makes no difference to its beauty or ugliness. But a woman is alive, and her beauty is therefore not skin deep. The surface of the human vessel is affected by the nature of its spiritual contents. I have seen women who, by the standards of a connoisseur of porcelain, were ravishingly lovely. Their shape, their colour, their surface texture were perfect. And yet they were not beautiful. For the lovely vase was either empty or filled with some corruption. Spiritual emptiness or ugliness shows through. And conversely, there is an interior light that can transfigure forms that the pure aesthetician would regard as imperfect or downright ugly. There are numerous forms of psychological ugliness. There is an ugliness of stupidity, for example, of unawareness (distressing common among pretty women), an ugliness also of greed, of lasciviousness, of avarice. All the deadly sins, indeed, have their own peculiar negation of beauty. On the pretty faces of those especially who are trying to have a continuous good time, one sees very often a kind of bored sullenness that ruins all their charm.
1. What does real beauty signify?
Answer: Real beauty is the outcome of spiritual nobility. It should be inward as well as outward.
2. Where does the beauty of porcelain jar lie?
Answer: The beauty of proclaim jar is outward. Inwardly, it may be empty or it may contain spiders.
3. Differentiate between inner beauty and outer beauty?
Answer: Outward beauty is a matter of face or skin. On the other hand, real beauty is the outcome of spiritual nobility.
4. Point out some forms of psychological ugliness.
Answer: Stupidity, greed and avarice are the forms of psychological ugliness.
5. Suggest a suitable title for the passage.
Answer: Title: Real Beauty OR What is Real Beauty?
6. Make a précis of the passage.
Answer: Précis: In this paragraph, the writer says that outward beauty is a matter of face or skin. On the other hand, real beauty is the outcome of spiritual nobility. So to be really beautiful, a woman should avoid all the forms of psychological ugliness including stupidity, greed and avarice. They should also avoid the deadly sins which deprive a woman of being beautiful spiritually.

                                                                                                                                     May 2, 2017.
The Editor,
The News,
Subject:                       Request for the Opening of a New Library
      Ours is one of the most populated areas of Pakistan. But, it is very sad that there is no library in the city. Libraries are a rich treasure of knowledge and wisdom. They enlighten the learners’ mind with the light of learning. The nations make progress owing to education. Education is at promotion in our city. The step which can further do the work of inspiration for the students is the establishment of a library in the city. It will create fondness among the students to enhance their knowledge. It will also discourage the negative activities among our students.
In this regard, it is requested that a library should be opened as soon as possible so that the students and common man may enhance their knowledge and become good citizens of society to play their vital role in the progress of their country.
I am sure that the concerned authorities would take some reasonable steps to set up a library.

Q.No.6: translate the following passage into English. (15)
ہم جانتے ہیں کہ ہمارے ملک میں عام سماجی بے چینی موجود ہے۔ اکثر لوگ ناخوش ہیں اور اپنی موجوہ حالت سے مطمئن نہیں ہیں۔ لوگ جنگ کے خطرات، بڑھتی ہوئی مہنگائی اور جرائم کے اضافے سے پریشان ہیں۔ خراب سماجی و معاشی حالات طلباء کے اندر بےچینی کا باعث ہیں۔ مثال کے طور پر بےروزگاری انہیں یہ سوچنے پر آمادہ کرتی ہے کہ انکی کی تعلیم انہیں روزگار دلانے میں مدد نہ دے سکے گی۔ دھوکہ دہی، جھوٹ، نا انصافی اور عدم مساوات جیسی برائیاں بھی طلباء کے اندر پریشانی کا باعث ہیں۔                                                                                                
Translation: We know that social unrest exists in our country. Most of the people are unhappy and dissatisfied with their present situation. They people are worried due to threats of war, increasing dearness and increase in crimes. Poor social and economic conditions are a cause of restlessness among the students. For example, unemployment persuades them to think that their education would not help them in getting employment. Evils such as fraud, falsehood, injustice and inequality are also the source of worry among the students.
