Question 1 (viii)

The writer says, “A true mountaineer may challenge the mountain, yet is always respectful to the powerful forces of nature.” (Paragraph 3)

Select the reason the mountaineer is respectful to the forces of nature, up in the mountains.

  1. survival
  2. experience
  3. tradition
  4. directive

 

Answer:

From the paragraph:

Mountain climbers are unanimous in agreeing that the unpredictable weather is what they fear the most. There may be sunshine one moment and a snowstorm the other. At higher altitudes, snow is a regular feature and being decisive about setting up camps or proceeding further is crucial. The icy sheets after ice storms make walking treacherous, while the powdery snow makes a mountaineer sink deep into the snow. Up there, where the intention is to embrace Nature’s wonder, one realises that it cannot be done without facing its formidable glory. A true mountaineer may challenge the mountain, yet is always respectful to the powerful forces of nature.

Checking the options: 

  • A. Survival - Survival is the main theme highlighted in the paragraph. So, this is correct
  • B. Experience - This is not relevant as per the theme of paragraph. So, this is not correct.
  • C. Tradition   - This is not relevant as per the theme of paragraph. So, this is not correct.
  • D. Directive   - This is not relevant as per the theme of paragraph. So, this is not correct.

So the correct answer is option A.
