General Instructions to the examinees:
- Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow: The people of Gujarat were mostly farmers. They reared cattle but remained poor. Despite their hard work, they always remained in want. The poor plight of these farmers moved the heart of the Iron Man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. He was determined to bring prosperity into their lives. So, he decided to organise them into a co-operative force and provide them with a steady source of income. This task was assigned to Mr. Tribhuvandas Patel. He united the disorganised farmers and started a co-operative dairy unit. This system of co-operative effort eliminated the middlemen who harassed and exploited the ignorant farmers.

- Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :-
At the age of six, Bismillah Khan moved to Varanasi (earlier known as Banaras), where his maternal uncle, Ali Baksh ‘Vilayatu’was the official ‘Shehnai’player at the famous Vishwanath Temple. Ali Baksh noticed that Bismillah was a keen music learner, so he took him under his tutelage. Thus, Bismillah Khan started learning to play the ‘Shehnal’from his uncle. Ali Baksh played ‘Shehnai’at the Vishwanath Temple and practised in one of the temple rooms at Balaji Ghat. Bismillah Khan’s routine was to follow his uncle the whole day to both the temples, and practise for hours together without any play time, school and sometimes even regular meals.
Bismillah Khan religiously practised the ‘Shehnai‘ and attained perfection in a very short time. The flowing waters of the River Ganga inspired him to improvise and invent ‘ragas’ that were earlier considered to be beyond the range of ‘Shehnai‘. He often played the ‘Shehnai‘ at the Vishwanath Temple on the banks of River Ganga. He was also a devotee of Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of wisdom and arts.
Ustad Bismillah Khan was perhaps single-handedly responsible for making the ‘Shehnai‘ a famous and popular musical instrument and bringing it into the mainstream Indian classical music. His concert at the All India Music Conference (1937) in Calcutta brought ‘Shehnai’ into the limelight, and was hugely appreciated by music lovers.

A Story use for Class 10th Board Exam paper students
A Clever Fox and A Foolish Crow
Once upon a time there was a fox. She was very hungry. She went here and there in search of food, but she could not find food anywhere. At last she went to a garden. There he saw the crow sitting on the tree. He had a piece of cheese in his beak. Seeing him, the fox’s mouth watered. She wanted to have that piece of cheese. He thought of a trick and went to the crow and said – “Uncle! Uncle! Your voice is very sweet. You sing a song for me.” The foolish crow was pleased to hear this. The crow opened its beak to sing a song. The piece of cheese fell down. The fox quickly picked it up, ate it and went away.
Moral: – Stay away from sycophants. Otherwise, they can harm you for their small selfishness.
