(Official Answer Key)
Directions : Read the passage given below and answer the questions (Q. Nos. 91 – 99) We follow by selecting the correct/most appropriate options :
The very nature of the mind is restlessness. It cannot stay in one place for long or hold one thought for long. For every thought which appears, there are comments, judgement and associations. Thinking is a continuous activity. The mind jumps from one thought to another and gives us no rest from morning till night. Like clouds in the sky or waves in the ocean, the thoughts appear and disappear as if in ceaseless activity.
However, all the thoughts that pass through our mind do not affect us. We get affected when our ego is hit. Then the mind whirls and creates a tornado of restlessness within. A variety of probable scenarios crop up. ‘how dare he insult me; What does she think of herself? Where I am not respected, I will not go; If he speaks thus I will reply so’. And so it goes on and on.
We have an inbuilt filter in our mind which chooses the types of thoughts or subjects to brood upon. We are not born with this filter but we acquire it over the years with the kind of books we read and the company we keep and the subjects that we are interested in.
That is why some people are obsessed with football or cricket or fashions and others could not care less about such things. This filter is built day by day by our actions, suggestions, teachings and influence of others. We can ultimately choose our own filter. So let us learn to build our filter wisely and strengthen it daily.

That time of year thou mayst in me behold,
When yellow leaves, or none, or few do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.

As after sunset fadeth in the west,
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death’s second self that seals up all in rest.
In me thou seest the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the death-bed, whereon it must expire,
Consumed with that which it was nourished by.

To love that well, which thou must leave the long.
