  1. Read the following poem carefully and answer the following questions.

    Amalkanti (Nirendranath Chakrabarti)

    Amalkanti is a friend of mine, we were together at school. He often came late to class and never knew his lessons. When asked to conjugate a verb, he looked out of the window in such puzzlement that we all felt sorry for him.

    Some of us wanted to be teachers, some doctors, some lawyers. Amalkanti didn't want to be any of these. He wanted to be sunlight — the timid sunlight of late afternoon, when it stops raining and the crows call again, the sunlight that clings like a s mile to the leaves of the jaam and the jaamrul.

    Some of us have become teachers, some doctors, some lawyers. Amalkanti couldn't become sunlight. He works in a poorly lit room for a printer. He drops in now and then to see me, chats about this and th at over a cup of tea, then gets up to go. I see him off at the door.

    The one among us who's a teacher could easily have become a doctor. If the one who'd wanted to be a doctor had become a lawyer, it wouldn't have made much difference to him. All of us got more or less what we wanted, all except Amalkanti — who used to think so much about sunlight that he wanted to become sunlight.

The scientists who earlier uncovered why zebras have black - and - white strips, took the colouration question to giant pandas in the latest study. “Understanding why the giant panda has such striking colouration has been a long - standing problem in biology that has been difficult to tackle because virtually no other mammal has this appearance, making analogies difficult , ” said Tim Caro, a professor at the University of California, Davis in the U.S. “The breakthrough in the study was treating each part of the body as an independent area,” said Mr. Caro.
