Direction (Q. No. 37 to 40) : Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option.

When we are suddenly confronted with any terrible danger, the change of nature we undergo is equally great. In some cases fear paralyses us. Like animals, we stand still, powerless to move a step in fright or to lift a hand in defence of our lives, and sometimes we are seized with panic, and again, act more like the inferior animals than rational beings. On the other hand, frequently in cases of sudden extreme peril, which cannot be escaped by flight, and must be instantly faced, even the most timid men at once as if by miracle, become possessed of the necessary courage, sharp quick apprehension and swift decision. This is a miracle very common in nature. Man and the inferior animals alike, when confronted with almost certain death ‘gather resolution from despair’ but there can really be no trace of so debilitating a feeling in the person fighting, or prepared to fight for dear life. At such times the mind is clearer than it has ever been; the nerves are steel, there is nothing felt but a wonderful strength and daring. Looking back at certain perilous moments in my own life, I remember them with a kind of joy, not that there was any joyful excitement then; but because they brought me a new experience – a new nature, as it were – and lifted me for a time above myself.

Far far from gusty waves these children’s faces. Like rootless weeds, the hair torn around their pallor.
The tall girl with her weighed-down head.
The paper seeming boy, with rats eyes.
The stunted, unlucky heir of twisted bones, reciting a father’s gnarled disease.
His lesson from his desk. At back of dim class
One unnoted, sweet and young. His eyes live in a dream
Of squirrel’s game, in the tree room, other than this.
