Akkineni Nageswara Rao (20 September 1923 - 22 January 2014), popularly known as ANR, was an Indian film actor and producer, predominantly in the Telugu cinema. He was discovered, by chance, by the film producer, Ghantasala Balaramaiah, at the Vijayawada railway station, and cast in the film Dharmapatni. In the early days of his career, he was best known for playing female characters, because women at that time were prohibited from acting. He starred in several films of various genres during his 75-year acting career and came to be known as one of the two pillars of the Telugu cinema along with N.T. Rama Rao. He acted in over 255 films, spanning the Telugu, Tamil and Hindi languages and became one of the most prominent figures in the history of Telugu cinema. A majority of his films were both commercial and critical successes. Despite being an atheist, ANR acted in various movies with strong religious themes such as Vipranarayana,Tukaram, Sriramadasu, Sriramarajyam etc. Manam was the last film of Akkineni Nageswara Rao, where he shared screen space with his son and grandson. He was a recipient of the Dada Saheb Phalke Award, the highest individual lifetime achievement award for films in India. He was honoured with the Padma Vibhushan, India's second highest civilian award, for his contribution towards Indian cinema.

VII. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow. 5 × 1 = 5

Fast food is the term given to food that can be prepared and served
very quickly, first popularized in the 1950s in the United States. While
any meal with low preparation time can be considered fast food, typically
the term refers to food sold in a restaurant or store with preheated
or precooked ingredients, and served to the customer in a packaged
form. Fast food restaurants are traditionally separated by their ability to
serve food via a drive-through. The term "fast food" was recognized in
a dictionary by Merriam - Webster in 1951. Outlets may be stands or
kiosks, which may provide no shelter or seating, or fast food restaurants
(also known as quick service restaurants). Franchise operations that
are part of restaurant chains have standardized foodstuffs shipped to
each restaurant from central locations. Fast food chains have come
under criticism over concerns ranging from claimed negative health
effects, alleged animal cruelty, cases of worker exploitation, and claims
of cultural degradation via shifts in people's eating patterns away from
traditional foods. The intake of fast food is increasing worldwide. Astudy
done in Jeddah has shown that current fast food habits are related to
the increase of obesity among adolescents in Saudi Arabia.
