(a) COMPEHENSION PASSAGE WITH OR WITHOU A TITLE
Read the following passage carefully, and then answer the question’s which follow:
The raven came flying around the hills in raiding parties; sometimes, I think with the express purpose of annoying the falcons which nest there. The falcons quick to anger at any time, were obviously in a heat of fury when the ravens came scouting along the cliff. Hunting down time after, the wing almost closed. The falcon would attempt to drive away the raven. The latter, however, flew unconcernedly to and fro; only at the last split second of each falcon’s ready for the death blow, did the raven turn over sideway to present that remarkable wedge of break which could transfix the falcon were it to continue its wild descend. But the falcon, knowing its match, does not strike an adult raven, though it may kill a young one which has not yet acquired the agility characteristic of its race Question:
- Describe brief it in your own words.
(a) The falcon’s method of attack
(b) The raven’s method of defense
(c) Two qualifies which, in the opinion of the write, are possessed by falcons.
- Discuss the author’s style of writing stating whether his story has been a success or a failure

I hear a sudden cry of Pain!
There is a rabbit in a snare
Now I hear the cry again
But I cannot kill from where
But I cannot tell from where
He is calling out for aid
Crying on the frightened air,
Making everything afraid
Making everything afraid
Wrinkling up his little face,
And the cry again for aid
And I cannot find the place!
And I cannot find the place
Where his paw is in the same
Little one! Oh little one!
I am searching everywhere.
