b.     Comprehension. --- five questions to be given from the selected passage.
Without the knowledge of grammar, it is impossible for you to write correctly; It is by mere accident if you speak correctly; and pray, bear in mind, that the well-informed persons judge of a man’s mind (until they have other means of judging) by his writing or speaking. The labour necessary to acquire this is indeed not trifling. Grammar is not like arithmetic, a science consisting of several distinct departments, some of which may be dispensed with; it is a whole, and the whole must be learnt, or no part is learnt. The subject is abstruse, it demands much reflection and much patience, but when once the task is performed for life, and in everyday of that life it will be found to be in a greater or less degree, a source of pleasure or of profit, or both together. And what is the labour? It consists of no labour exertion; it exposes the student to no cold, no hunger, no suffering of any sort. The hours usually spent on the tea and coffee shops and in the mere gossip which accompany them; those wasted hours, of only one year, employed in the study of English grammar would make you a correct speaker and writer for the rest of your life.
i. Why is the study of grammar essential?
ii. How should grammar be learnt?
iii. How will the well-informed person judge people?
iv. Does the study of grammar involve labour?
v. What is indeed not trifling?
