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 role of the precious yellow metal is undergoing a dramatic change.
S6: Again, it would not be an economic proposition to buy and sell gold ornaments as an instrument of investment as buying would be costlier and selling will be at a discount.

P: In developing countries like India, where gold is used mainly for ornaments, a distinct change in attitude is in the offing.
Q: Slowly, the use of gold in the form of ornaments will be on the decline and even if gold prices shoot up, women folk would not like to sell off their ornaments.

S6: It was colder than usual.

6. 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.

P: And the answer he got was that they were weaving carpets there.
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.


7. S1: There are examinations at school which a pupil can pass by cramming the texts.
S6: Thus, reading, reflection and experience are the three stages in, gaining spiritual knowledge.

P: But for spiritual knowledge mere memory of holy texts will be of no use in passing the texts.
Q: One can score in them by the power of memory.
R: A competent guru alone can provide the necessary guidance to an earnest disciple.
S: What the text says has to be reflected upon and experienced by the speaker.


8. S1: She used to work at the desk next to mine in the office several years ago.
S6: I am glad that their demands have been accepted.

P: But it must have been exasperating that a male sitting beside her was 'doing the same work as she was and being paid more.
Q: She is certain to be still there, in the same old brown suit and fur lined boots.
R: She was as kind as she was efficient.
S: Now she and all her friends have won their long campaign for the justice of equal pay to be recognised.


9. S1: Of the scholars who compose a university, some may be expected to devote an unbroken leisure to learning, their fellows having the advantage of their knowledge from their conversation, and the world perhaps from their writings.
S6: There classes of persons, then, go to compose a university as we know it - the scholar, the scholar who is also a teacher, and those who come to be taught, the undergraduate.

P: Others, however, will engage themselves to teach as well as to learn.
Q: Those who come to be taught at a university have to provide evidence that they are not merely beginners and not only do they have displayed before them the learning of their teachers, but they are offered a curriculum of study, to be followed by a test and the award of a degree.
R: But here again, it is the special manner of the pedagogic enterprise which distinguishes a university.
S: A place of learning without this could . scarcely be called a university.


10. S1: Nobody likes staying at home on a public holiday- especially if the weather is fine.
S6: It was very peaceful in the cool grass-until we heard bells ringing at the top of the hill.

P: We had brought plenty of food with us and we got it out of the car.
Q: The only difficulty was that millions of other people had the same idea.
R: Now everything was ready so we sat down near a path at the foot of a hill.
S: We moved out of the city slowly behind a long line of cars, but at last we came to a quiet country road and, after sometime, stopped at a lonely farm.
