DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL, CHANDIGARH

Summative Assessment-II, Session 2012-13

Class : VI, Subject : English (Sample Paper)

Q.1 Read the passage carefully:

1. Susan Howlet Butcher was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Her love of the wilderness and animals drew her to Alaska. She eventually rose to become the most famous dog musher in the world. A musher is a person who travels with a dog-sled team.

2. A disciplined and fearless adventurer, she was the first person to win three consecutive Iditarod championships, from 1986 to 1988. The Iditarod is a 1,152- mile race across the Alaskan wilderness. Butcher, who raced in her first Iditarod in 1978, finished in the top five from 1980 to 1984. In 1985, she was leading in the early stages of the race when a sick and dying moose blundered into her path on the trail and then two of her dogs were dead, others were injured and she was out of the race.

3. She believed that one has to be very selfless in their dedication to the dogs. Her success was the result of long training. According to her, the most strenuous is going over the rough terrain and having to steer the sled. The sled weighs 150 to 200 pounds with all the gear in it.

4. In the years following her death, the State of Alaska honoured her in a number of ways. In 2008, the state legislature established Susan Butcher Day, to be observed on the first Saturday of March each year. Later that year, the University of Alaska at Fairbanks announced the creation of the Susan Butcher Institute, to develop public service and leadership skills among young Alaskans.

Q.2 Read the passage carefully:

During the school holidays my parents and I spent a week in Illam which is in the far eastern part of Nepal. We visited many places of interest but I liked the tea estates most. The tea bushes are planted on the slopes, usually on high ground. They are trimmed and kept short so that the workers can pluck the leaves. Each worker carries a basket on her back and throws the shoots over her shoulders into the basket. There are five stages in the manufacturing of tea: First the leaves are laid out on racks. Warm air is blown over them which causes them to become withered.

Next, the tea leaves are rolled in a special machine. The leaves become twisted and broken. After that, they are put in trays to ferment. Then, the tea leaves are dried in a special drier. The leaves become black and give off a pleasant smell. Finally, the leaves are graded by a special machine. The fine leaves are separated from the coarse ones. The tea is packed in boxes and sent to markets
