CBSE class 10 English MCQs Term 1 Exam important  Questions

The question paper will be divided proportionally. The most likely reason for proportionally divided questions is that they will be more accessible to pupils of various intelligence levels and levels of preparation. It’s possible that a portion of the question paper will go undetected. These types of questions are best tackled by students who have a strong grasp of the English language. Furthermore, the literature accounts for nearly half of the exam. CBSE has also made it simple for students by making the literature section only half of the question paper. RTCs are used in 20 of the 30 questions, so even if students remember the chapters, they can readily attempt them.
The majority of the stand-alone MCQs can also be successfully completed by students. It will be easier for pupils to answer these questions if they take the time to read them carefully. Students will be able to understand the questions after reading them a few times. Furthermore, this Class 10 English MCQ-based question structure now assesses students’ comprehension rather than their language abilities.

Class 10 English MCQ Term 1:  tips to get a good score

Below mentioned are some tips and tricks for you to prepare yourself in the language paper:

  • Carefully read the entire question as well as the options. Doing this will aid in the maximum comprehension of the question for the language paper, as only a well-understood question can be well-answered.
  • Remove any incorrect responses. This strategy of deleting the incorrect ones first allows you to save time. Eliminating the wrong ones, especially in a language document, leads to finding the proper one.
  • Choose the most straightforward response. When choosing amongst the MCQs, always choose the one that is to the point and exact to what you have studied.
  • Because you’ll be using an OMR sheet, start with the known questions. Simply keep circling as you wish, but leave enough time to double-check before circling one of the OMR sheet’s responses.
  • Make an effort to answer all of the questions. Because there is no negative marking this time, you should try your luck even on questions where you are unsure of the answers, allowing you to make a calculated guess.
  • Take note of the words/phrases. Words like “not true,” “true,” “included,” “not included,” and others may perplex you and lead you to an incorrect response.
  • Several times over, read the statements. This will assist you in determining whether a statement is true or not.
  • At the very end, you should tackle the reading segment. Because it is fresh to the kids, it will take more time for them to remember it.
  • It is essential to know the names of the writers/authors and poets.
  • Read the contextual reference carefully. Do this to ensure a successful attempt, as all RTC-based questions may be answered from the provided text.

Section- A (Reading)                                                    (Q 1-14)

 

  1. Read the passage given below.

 

  1. Nature is our mother, our first teacher. The greatest lesson that she teaches us is to maintain an equilibrium in life. We learn to maintain composure through our joys, sorrows and fears. In fact, there are a thousand lessons that nature can teach us, provided we look for them.

 

  1. With time, a sapling grows into a full-grown tree; something so tiny and delicate develops into a strong tree capable of supporting others. No matter how tall it grows, how much it may flourish, or how many animals and birds it may support, its roots are firmly buried from where it once rose. That’s a lesson – to keep ourselves grounded, respect and embrace our roots, and give something back to those humble beginnings that nurtured us into who we are.

 

III. Then there is the message of peaceful coexistence. ‘I am because we are.’ Nature provides every creature a chance to exist. However, the existence of one creature or being depends on the existence of the other. The tiger eats the antelope; without the antelope, the tiger wouldn’t survive. Likewise, without tigers, the over-abundance of

antelopes would cause them to starve to death.

 

  1. I wonder if you have noticed that when birds or squirrels see a predator, they give out an alarm call to their fellow creatures, of the lurking danger. They put themselves in danger to save the lives of others. Many animals, like the salmon, usually die after they spawn, but this doesn’t stop them. One life extinguished for the betterment of others is a small price to pay.

 

  1. The snow melts in the warmth of spring to give birth to fresh green leaves. In autumn these leaves age into shades of gold only to be buried in the cold grave of winter. Change is inevitable; the sooner we embrace this, the better it is for us. We must also understand that even in pain there is growth. If you cut a hole in the tree, it will grow around it. No matter what may come in its way, a river will continue to flow. Similarly, no matter what grief may break your heart, nature teaches us that life goes on.

 

  1. Keep in mind life isn’t about making lists and trying to be one step ahead of others. Life is to live. Take a break-stop being a workaholic, and smell the roses, do whatever makes you feel happy and most of all spend some time with nature to pick up invaluable lessons.

  1. Read the passage given below.

 

  1. Research from the Publishers Association has shown that films based on books take 44%

more at the box office revenue in the UK and 53% more worldwide than original

screenplays. The report explores what impact a book has when adapted for film and TV.

 

  1. The report reads: “Published material is the basis of 52% of top UK films in the last 10 years, and accounts for an even higher share of revenue from these leading performers, at 61% of UK box office gross and 65% of worldwide gross.” The Hollywood adaptation of “My Cousin Rachel” was shown to have a significant impact on the sales of the Daphne Du Maurier thriller.

The sales of the book in 2017 alone accounted for 23% of all sales since 1992.

 

III. The research suggests that adapted films tend to perform better, because films can

“leverage the popularity” of well-known books through an existing audience. Films adapted from books also tend to have a richer, more fully-developed story to draw on.

In terms of TV adaptation, it was revealed that a quarter of dramas were based on literary sources and attracted a 56% larger share of the audience than those based on original scripts. Fourteen of the 35 high end series produced in the UK in the period between January and September 2017 were based on books, compared to seven based on true stories or historical events and five based on pre-existing films or TV stories.

 

  1. In the case of the 2016 BBC broadcast of “The Night Manager”, research revealed that while the novel was in circulation for over 25 years, 82% of the copies it sold were in 2016 and 2017. Sales of the paperback edition remained strong in 2017 even after the series went off the air.

 

  1. In conclusion, the report states that “there is a strong two-way relationship between publishing and the wider creative economy, wherein a successful adaptation often has spill-over effects and gives a substantial boost to the sales of the original book.”

But the decades of oppression and brutality had another unintended effect, and that was that it produced the Oliver Tambos, the Walter Sisulus, the Chief Luthulis, the Yusuf Dadoos, the Bram Fischers, the Robert Sobukwes of our times — men of such extraordinary courage, wisdom and generosity that their like may never be known again.
