UIIC – English Language Model Question Paper
DIRECTIONS (41-55) Read the following passage carefully and answer the question given below it. Certain words are printed in bold to help you to locate them while answering some of the questions.
Compulsory sport in schools has often provoked bitter controversy and both parents and their children have expressed themselves forcefully on the subject. Their chief arguments have been based on the accepted fact that both mentally and physically youngsters are widely different. A child through disinclination or through inability to play any game well prefers not to join in school games, should be allowed to follow his own particular bent, preferably by doing extra work on a subject within the school curriculum, or taking part in the activities of one of the school societies. Those who are unsuited to any particular game or physical efforts because of a frail physique or bodily defect should be given more sympathetic consideration.
While those pleas from the parents deserve a kindly hearing, the good of the children as a whole must be kept in mind. If we are not careful, the logical conclusion will be reached where only those who excel in athletics will take part in school games, and nobody would accept that as sensible. This must also be borne in mind that both parents and children are apt to exaggerate conditions and the former only too often become overconcerned for the safety and well-being of their offspring. Too many times have those ?excused games? been found involved in adventures requiring far more physical effort and danger than the games from which they have been excused. Experts have declared that in games and athletics with the possible exception of the ?tug-of-war?, the body will stop functioning long before any physical harm can be caused.
