Read the following passage first and then answer the questions given below:
I have always found astrology a fascinating though rather silly idea. Somehow I can’t believe that pieces of rock flying around in space should decide whether I’m intelligent or stupid, social or unsocial, generous or selfish. Astrologers say that our characters are influenced by the positions of the planets at the moment we are born. The Sun warms us they argue and helps things grow; the Moon causes the tides, and (according to some) can make people go mad. In the same way, say the astrologers, the planets and stars influence what we do, and the kind of people we are. I’m not convinced.
However, there’s no doubt that astrology is still very popular. I’m always amazed at the way normally sensible people carefully read their horoscopes in newspapers and magazines. ‘Of course, it’s all rubbish, really,’ they say, with an embarrassed smile on their faces, when they see you watching.
I’m the same myself. The other day I saw one of those Zodiac Star Guides in a station bookshop, and, of course, I put my hand in my pocket and took it away to read on the train- carefully hidden behind a newspaper. I’m a Gemini, and Geminis are supposed to be egotistical, so I turned straight to the Gemini pages and started reading about myself.
It began well. According to my Star Guide, I’m intellectual, quick thinking, imaginative, generous, charming, and everybody finds me extremely interesting to talk to. I also have a wide variety of interests, and am successful in everything I do. I began to feel sorry for the poor Taureans, who, according to the book, are rather boring, quiet, unimaginative people who never seem to do very much at all.
Grade 11 English Board Exam Questions
However, although all this was very enjoyable reading, it didn’t impress me: it’s easy to get people to believe nice things about themselves. But what about the faults? Will it get those too, I wondered as I read on.
I did. It seems that having a quick mind can have its disadvantages: besides being ‘as changeable as the British weather‘, I’m rather quick-tempered, easily bored, and find it difficult to make decisions. Because of my many interests, the book continued, I can’t concentrate on one thing at a time, and tend to be a ‘Jack of all trades and master of none‘. More worrying was the discovery that I ‘have no depth of feeling’, and am unreliable in matters of love. And I was particularly upset to read the Geminis are sometimes not entirely honest.
By this time I was beginning to wonder whether the writer of the book was a personal acquaintance of mine. I was even (like a true, changeable Gemini) beginning to change my mind about astrology, and to stop feeling sorry for people born under Taurus.
But then I saw the trick: everyone has these faults, not just Geminis. We all sometimes lose our tempers, get bored, and change our minds- and nobody can be single-minded, serious, reliable and honest all the time. Slightly relieved, I put the Star Guide away and looked through the newspaper, stopping, as usual, to look at my horoscope for the day.
‘Reading your horoscope?’ asked the man sitting next to me.
‘Yes,’ I replied, with an embarrassed smile. ‘Of course, it’s all rubbish, really.’
Now write answers to the following questions: (2×5=10)
