NTSE Sample Questions 2016-17 : Rajasthan Language (Stage-1)

Direction for  Question  No. 1 - 5 : Read  the passage    and  answer   the questions   based  on it.

I have  three  visions  for India.  In 3000 'years  of our  history  people -frorn all. over  the  world  have  come  and  invaded  us,  captured   our  lands,   conquered'  our minds.   From   Alexander   onwards   the   Greeks,   the'  Turks,    the   . Moguls,  the Portuguese,   the  British,  the  French,  the  Dutch,  all of them  came  and  looted us,took over what  was ours.  Yet we have not done this  to any other  nation.  We have' not  conquered   anyo~e .. We have  not  grabbed  their  land,  their  culture   and  their history  and  tried to enforce our way of life on them.  Why?  Because  we respet  the freedom  of others.  That  is why my FIRST VISION is that  of FREEDOM. I believe that   India   got  its .first  vision  of  this   in  1857,  when  we  started   the  Wat  of Independence.   It is this  freedom that  we must  protect  and  nurture   and  build  on.If we are not free,  no one will respect  us.                                                                          .
We have  10 per cent growth in most areas.  Our poverty levels are falling. Our  achievements   are being globally recognised  today.  Yet we lack  the  self confidence to  see  ourselves  as  a developed  nation,   self-reliant   and  self assured.   Isn't. this incorrect?    MY SECOND VISION for India  is DEVELOPMENT. For  fifty years  we have  been  a. developing nation.  It is time we see ourselves  as a developed  nation. We are among  top five nations  in' the world in terms  of GDP. I have THIRD VISION India  must  stand  up to the world. Because  I believe that  unless   India  stands   up to the world, no one will-respect  us.  Only strength  respects   strength:   We must  be strong  not only as a military power but  also as an economic  power.
