1. S1: When Weiner was travelling in India, he visited a factory where he saw small frail children sitting on damp ground.
S6: Recently he has published this book and it is winning him acclaim all over the world.

Q: So he asked, "What are they doing there?"
R: And then he decided to study the problems of child labourers in India.
S: Weiner was shocked at the plight of the child workers.


2. S1: Instantly, the full load yanked Gordy towards the side of the bridge.
S6: Feeling a sharp burning sensation where the cable was speeding between his things, Gordy rose on tiptoe and as he did, the slithering coil of cable tightened around his left foot and yanked him over the railing.

P: But the pull of the cable was too much.
Q: He could hardly feel the cUble, slipping through his fingers, ripping off his gloves, and streaking over the railing like an escaping snake.
R: It smashed his hands hard against the top of the railing, causing a split - second feeling of fierce pain followed by numbness.
S: He held on to the cable; it had been hard work lifting it, and he did not want to have to start over again.


3. S1: The mail is first collected from different letter boxes.
S6: Finally it is delivered to us.

Q: It is then sorted out at the sorting office.
R: The mail is again sorted out at the head office by the concerned beat postman.
S: The sorted mail is sent to the zonal post office.


4. S1: Yawning or its absence has been related to various clinical conditions.
S6: It is in reality a releasing stimulus.

P: Interestingly, some clinicians claim that those with acute physical illness don't yawn until they are on the road to recovery.
Q: It can be a symptom of brain lesions, haemorrhage, motion sickness and encephalitis.
R: But what is currently known about yawning is essentially anecdotal, mostly because the yawn has not got the respect it deserves.
S: On the other hand, it has been reported that psychotics rarely yawn, except those suffering from brain damage.


5. S1: Suddenly it began to climb swiftly, and I knew it was speeding eastward again till it became a speck in the blue morning.
S6: In that case there might be a chance on the moors to the right or left.

P: I didn't know what force they could command, but I was certain it would be sufficient.
Q: My enemies had located me, and the next thing would be a cordon round me.
R: That made me do some savage thinking.
S: The aeroplane had seen my bicycle, and would conclude that I would try to escape by the road.



6. S1: There was once a Persian king called Shahryar who had a beautiful wife.
S6: After one day's marriage he would cut off her head and marry again.

Q: He gave orders that he was to be provided with a new wife every day
R: He loved her very much, but she was a wicked woman.
S: He decided that all women were wicked and that he would punish them.


7. S1: A transformation of consciousness is now beginning to express itself in the field of theoretical architecture.
S6: The relationship between culture and nature is changed, for the architect grows a house like a garden.

P: In the still theoretical structure an attempt is being made to create a house that is "a domestication of an ecosystem."
Q: What is happening in the architecture is a shift from the international style of the post industrial era to a symbolic structure.
R: Since architecture is the collective unconscious made visible, the architect does not himself always understand the full cultural implications of his own work.
S: The new form is not a celebration of power over new materials, but a celebration of cooperation with ecosystem.


8. S1: The commonest form of forgetfulness, I suppose, occurs in the matter of posting letters.
S6: Weary of holding it in my hand, I then put it for safety into one of my pockets and forget all about it.

P: So common is it that I am always reluctant to trust a departing visitor to post an important letter.
Q: As for myself, anyone who asks me to post a letter is a poor judge of character.
R: Even if I carry the letter in my hand I am always past the first pillar box before I remember that I ought to have posted it.
S: So little I rely on his mem?,ry that I put him on his oath before handing the letter to him.


9. S1: In other words, grammar grows and changeg, and there is no such thing as correct use of English for the past, the present and the future.
S6: All the words that man has invented are divided into eight classes, which are called parts of speech.

P: "The door is broke."
Q: Yet this would have been correct in Shakespeare's time.
R: Today, only an uneducated person would say, "My arm is broke."
S: For example, in Shakespeare's play Hamlet, there is the line.

S6: He was careful not to touch anything.
