PSEB Class 8th English Model Questions
Section-A (Reading Skills):
1. Read the passage and answer the questions that follow. (5 Marks) Daffodils, the trumpet-shaped flowers bloom during the spring. In fact, daffodils are the first sign of spring and they symbolise rebirth, new beginnings, and friendship. It is the flower of those born in March. Daffodils are native to the Mediterranean region but are cultivated all over the world. The flower is called Nargis in Hindi, perhaps because of its association with the egotistical Greek God Narcissus. It is believed that Narcissus fell in love with his own image in a pool of water.
He was so enamoured by his own image that he fell into the water and drowned. The flower, also called Narcissus, grew where he died. This led it to becoming a symbol of unrequited love. A gift of daffodil flowers is believed to ensure happiness. It is a common decoration flower during the Chinese New Year. Feng Shui experts believe that if a daffodil bulb blooms during the New Year, it will bring good luck to your home. Daffodil bulbs, because of their astringent properties, are pounded and made into a paste to be applied to wounds. Pharma companies use daffodil extracts to make drugs that are used to treat Alzheimer’s and Polio.
