systems that treat students equally,

equal treatment results from unequal
interpretations of rules. The expectation for all children to stay in their
seats and not wander around the
room may be an unfair expectation
for some. In getting to know students

Directi0ns— Read the following passage and answer the
questions that follow-
Once, the word man meant
’person’ or ’human being’. lt was like
the Latin word ’homo’, a member of
the human species, not an adult male
of the species. But, man has,
gradually, become more specific in
meaning and is now a synonym for
an adult male human being only. In
the words of a popular dictionary for
children, “A boy grows up to be a
man. Father and Uncle George are
both men”, This is the meaning that
native speakers understand because
they hear used in everyday
speech in this way, si.nce childhood.
Later, we learn that has
another generic meaning, but we do
not accept it with the same certainty.
Studies of college students and school
children show that phrases such as
economic man and political man or
statements such as ’man domesticated animals’ and ’man is a dreamer’
create an image of male people only,
not female people or male and female
people together.
To go on using, in its former
sense, a word whose meaning has
changed, is unfair. The point is not
that we should recognise a semantic
change, but that, in order to be
precise, in order to be understood, we
must. Furthermore, only recently,
have we become aware that convention English usage, including the
generic use of and other
masculine gender words, often hides
the actions, the contributions and,
sometimes, the very presence of
women. We can refuse to accept this
view if we want, but if we do, it is
like teaching children that the Earth is
flat, Continuing to use English in
ways that have become misleading, is
no different from misusing information.

47. The passage is about•

(A) using language to give
correct information
(B) recognizing that language
is changing and use it appropriately
(C) linguistic confusion arising
from the change
(D) All of the above


48. The word ’man’ means-

(A) person and adult male
(B) only person
(C) only adult male
(D) None of the above


49. To use ’man’ as a generic term–

(A) leads to unnecessary con-
(B) makes women seem less
(C) is misleading
(D) All of the above


50. To use the term ’man’ as it stands
now is essential-

(A) as change in semantics must
be recognised
(B) in order to communicate
with exactitude
(C) Both (A) and (B)
(D) None of the above
