SECTION – A (Reading)
1. Read the following passage and answer the questions given below it :
Buddha found that all men are unhappy – rich or poor. Wealth brings comfort, a fleeting fancy of joy, but no real happiness. While he was in this mood, he came across one of the saints who still performed penance far from the crowd. A passionate desire to do likewise took hold of Gautama. Just then the news was brought to him of his first born son. This is another ‘tie to break’, said Gautama. He felt like a man whose house is on fire. At night he awoke in a great agony of spirit, went into the bright moonshine; mounted his horse and rode off into the wood. He met a holy hermit in the Vindhya mountains and talked to him but he was not satisfied. Then he went to the jungle with five disciples and there he gave himself up to fasting and penance. But it brought him no sense of truth. Then he gave up fasting and began to feed himself fully. He realised that truth may be reached best by nourished brain in a healthy body.

(i) Buddha found out a very specific thing. What was that? 3
(ii) Why did Buddha go to jungle? 3
