    CTET-TET PART IV ENGLISH LANGUAGE- I Previous Years solved Question Papers

    Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow (Q. No. 1 to 9) by selecting the most appropriate option.

    Surviving a Snakebite

    1 Annually, there are a million cases of snakebite in India and of these, close to 50,000 succumb to the bites.

    2 When you look around the countryside, where most bites occur, and notice people's habits and lifestyles, these figures aren't surprising. People walk barefoot without a torch at night when they are most likely to step on a foraging venomous snake.

    3 We encourage rodents by disposing waste food out in the open, or by storing foodgrains in the house. Attracted by the smell of rats, snakes enter houses and when one crawls over someone asleep on the floor and the person twitches or rolls over, it may bite in defence.

    4 Once bitten, we don't rush to the hospital. Instead, we seek out the nearest conman, tie tourniquets, eat vile tasting herbal chutneys, apply poultices or spurious stones, cut/slice/suck the bitten spot, and other ghastly time-consuming deadly "remedies".

    5 As Rom cattily remarks : "If the snake hasn't injected enough venom, even popping an aspirin can save your life." That's the key - snakes inject venom voluntarily and we have no way of knowing if it has injected venom, and if it is a lethal dose. The only first aid is to immobilise the bitten limb like you would a fracture, and get to a hospital for anti-venom serum without wasting time.

    6. In the instance of a snakebite, what should we do immediately?

    (2) Life can be saved even by swallowing an aspirin, even though the snake hasn't injected enough venom.

    (3) Even popping an aspirin can save your life, in spite of a snake not having injected enough venom.

    (4) As long as you are popping an aspirin to save your life, the snake will not inject enough venom.
