Question 11:

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow.

Mr. Ravi had been living in a small town with his family for many years. He decided to shift to a city when he learnt that a nuclear power plant would be built in his town. His son Prakash, who was a science teacher, did not agree with his father’s decision. Prakash explained to his father how mass defect during nuclear fission released energy. He assured his father that the authorities were taking all the possible safety measures to avoid any kind of nuclear mishap. Mr. Ravi understood the scientific explanation given by his son and decided not to shift to another place.

  1. The writings are good but if they were not handwritten, or if typed notes, they would be easier to understand. You can keep the watermark just make it a computerized version of notes.
