BSE Andhra Pradesh SSC Second Language English Model Questions

Section – A : Reading Comprehension
Questions (1 – 5) : Read the following passage carefully.
It was a fine sight : the temple elephant yoked to the engine by means of stout ropes, with fifty determined men pushing it from behind, and my friend Joseph sitting in the driving seat. A huge crowd stood around and watched in great glee. The engine began to move. It seemed to me the greatest moment in my life. When it came out of the Gymkhana and reached the road, it began to behave in a strange manner.

Instead of going straight down the road it showed a tendency to wobble and move zigzag. The elephant dragged it one way, Joseph turned the wheel for all he was worth without any idea of where he was going, and fifty men behind it clung to it in every possible manner and pushed it just where they liked. As a result of all this confused dragging, the engine ran straight into the opposite compound wall and reduced a good length of it powder. At this the crowd let out a joyous yell.

The pigeon is a strong flier. It can fly long distance without stopping or resting. The strangest thing about the pigeon is that it will always fly back home. You may take a pigeon across mountains and seas, but it will always fly back home. That is why they are called homing pigeons or ‘homers’.
