Atal Bihari Vajpayee was born on 25 December 1924. He is the only

Minister of India from May 16-31, 1996, and then again from March 19,
1998 to May 13, 2004. With his swearing-in as Prime Minister after the
parliamentary election of October 1999, he became the first and only
person since Jawaharlal Nehru to occupy the office of the Prime
Minister of India through three successive Lok Sabhas. He is also the
first non-congress Prime Minister to serve a full five-year term. His
legacy as Prime Minister is a rich one that is remembered and
cherished forever. It includes the Pokhran nuclear tests, astute and
wise economic policies that laid the foundations of the longest period
of sustained growth in independent Indian history, massive
infrastructure projects such as those related to development of
national highways and the Golden Quadrilateral. Few Indian Prime
Ministers have left such a great impact on society. He retired from

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

Hudhud was a strong tropical cyclone that caused extensive damage to
the city of Visakhapatnam and the neighbouring districts of
Vizianagaram and Srikakulam of Andhra Pradesh on 12 October 2014
(Sunday). Damages are estimated to be at least 70000 crore (US$11
billion), with assessments still underway. It tore through the Steel
City, unleashing widespread destruction and bringing the otherwise
bustling city of nearly 20 lakh people to a grinding halt. The damage
caused by Hudhud not only changed the landscape of the Port City, but
also made it the first city in the country to be directly hit by a
cyclone since 1891 as per the records of the IMD. Under the impact of
Hudhud that made a landfall on Sunday, accompanied by gusty winds and
heavy rains, the City of Destiny looked like a war-ravaged zone with
lakhs of uprooted trees, knocked down cell towers, transformers, and
telephone poles lying strewn at several places. Essential services
were disrupted and people remained indoors to escape nature's fury.
However, before Hudhud approached the shores, the government
machineries at the centre and the state had pooled their resources
together to warn people, arrange evacuation, and deploy rapid action
teams. As a result of such preemptive measures, number of deaths
remained at less than 50. Fortunately, the cyclone hit on Sunday. Had
it been on a working day, there would
have been more number of deaths.

1. What are the other names to Visakhapatnam City according to the passage?
2. Why was Visakhapatnam looked like a war-ravaged zone after being
hit by Hudhud cyclone?
3. Find out the synonym of 'anger' in the passage?
4. No other city in India was directly hit by a cyclone before 12
October 2014. State 'True' or 'False'
5. Hudhud caused less number of deaths. What was the reason?

Choose the correct answer.
I. It was not a high intensity cyclone
II. It hit the city on Sunday
III. The central and state governments had taken precautionary
measures effectively.
A) I and II only B) II and III only
C) I and III only D) III only
