UNIT TEST Class XII

Q. 1. (A) Read the following extract and answer the questions given below it. [11]

My own faith in Chaitanya started giving me abundant strength. I no longer wanted to hide myself from the glaring eyes of the world. I took him around with me. He went with us everywhere like any normal child. We were not sorry or uncomfortable carrying him around.

If I required help for him in public places, I was not embarrassed to seek people around. I did not mind telling them that he was a special child. I was not scared of people’s curious look and awkward questions. I could talk about Chaitanya’s problem calmly. As my mind opened up further, I could discern new hope springing in my heart. I felt happy I was a Special Mother.

The special school did Chaitanya a lot of good. He was now a much more confident person, adored by his teachers, his friends and his school staff. His speech improved and expression became clearer. His social manners become laudable.

Academically he was still lagging behind the expected standard of learning but it was okay. He started developing an all-round interest in craft, art, music dancing and sports. Early in 1997-98, when he returned from state level inter-school sports, he had two prizes to his credit and a silver medal. He had won his laurels in athletic events and silver medal in running race.
