4. 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.


5. S1: A father, having offered to take the baby out in a perambulator, was tempted by the sunny morning to slip into a pub for a glass of beer.

8. S1: You might say that all through history there have been wars and that mankind has survived inspite of them.
S6: Man has now discovered how to release the colossal forces locked up in the atom.

P: Now, if his purposes are those of destruction, each fresh advance in his mastery of nature only increases the danger from war, as, men learn to destroy one another in ever great numbers, from ever great distances, and in ever more varied and ingenious ways.
Q: He has learned to tap the hidden forces of our planet and use them for his purposes.
R: It has even developed and become civilised inspite of-them.
S: This is true, but unfortunately as part of his development man has enormously increased his power over nature.


9. 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.
R: The yellow metal will soon be treated as an investment instrument.
S: The maxim, "Larger the gold reserves, richer the country" will not hold good for a long time.


10. 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.
