SECTION – A (Reading)
1. Read the following passage and answer the questions given below it :
(A) The human body can tolerate only a small range of temperature, especially when the person is engaged in vigorous activity. Heat reactions usually occur when large amounts of water and salt are lost through excessive sweating following stern exercise. When the body becomes overheated and cannot eliminate this excess heat, heat exhaustion and heat stroke are possible.
(B) Heat exhaustion is generally characterized by clammy skin, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, profuse perspiration and sometimes fainting, resulting from an inadequate intake of water and the loss of fluids. First aid treatment for this condition includes having the victim lie down, raising the feet 8 to 12 inches, applying cool, wet clothes to the skin and giving the victim sips of salt water (one tea- spoon per glass, half a glass every 15 minutes) over a one- hour period.
(C) Heat stroke is much more serious. It is an immediate life threatening situation. The characteristics of heat stroke are a high body temperature (which may reach 106°F or more), a rapid pulse, hot, dry skin and a blocked sweating mechanism. Victims of this condition may be unconscious and first aid measures should be directed at quickly cooling the body. The victim should be placed in a tub of cold water or repeatedly sponged with cool water until his or her temperature is sufficiently lowered. Fan or air-conditioners will also help with the cooling process. Care should be taken, however, not to overchill the victim once the temperature is below 102°F.

रात अंधेरी थी। बारह बजे थे। कुत्ते भी नहीं भौक रहे थे। मैं गहरी नींद में था। यकायक एक तेज आवाज ने मुझे जगा दिया। जागने पर मैंने देखा कि बहुत से लोग एक ही ओर भागे जा रहे थे। कुछ लोग पानी लेकर जा रहे थे। कुछ लोग अपने हाथों में लाठी लिए हुए थे, जबकि दूसरे लोग खाली हाथ जा रहे थे। कुछ देर तक मैं समझ न सका कि क्या बात है। शीघ्र ही आसमान से बहुत – सा धुआँ और प्रकाश दिखाई पड़ा। एक मकान में आग लगी थी। घर के सब लोग भाग गए थे परन्तु एक माँ अपने बच्चे के लिए जल भरी थी। माँ के महान प्रेम को कौन नहीं जानता।
