VI. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions.

Sleep is as important to a healthy life-style as eating properly and exercising. On an average, a healthy adult requires just over eight hours of sleep at night. Yet, polls show that increasing number of people is suffering from sleep disorders or significant sleep loss (six and a half hours or less of a sleep at night). A study shows that twenty-nine per cent of Indians went to sleep only after midnight and sixty-one per cent slept for seven hours or less. Sleep is crucial to maintaining your health. Without it, you increase your weakness to a wide rage of health problems, increasing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity and depression. Poor sleep can affect the immune system. The immune system works best when you are asleep. That is when the natural killer cells are generated in the bone marrow. These killer cells help in protecting the body against viruses, bacteria and even cancer. The killer cells do not work properly when there is sleep deficiency. 5 × 1 = 5

VII. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions.

Slavery can broadly be described as the ownership, buying and selling of human beings for the purpose of forced and unpaid labour. The institution of slavery is as old as civilization. Many nations and empires were built by the muscles of slaves. But what kinds of people were enslaved, and why? In ancient civilizations, slaves were usually war captives. The victors in battle might enslave the losers rather than kill them. Over time, people have found other reasons to justify slavery. Slaves were usually considered somehow different than their owners. They might belong to a different race, religion, nationality, or ethnic background. By focusing on such differences, slave owners felt that they could deny basic human rights to their slaves. The Greeks and the Romans kept slaves as soldiers, servants, labourers and even civil servants. The Romans captured slaves from what are now Britain, France and Germany. Slave armies were kept by the Ottomans and Egyptians. 5 × 1 = 5
