Look at what you're eating now and make changes where you see fit. If you are susceptible to snacking, keep a piece of fruit or a few nuts at hand. The key is to eat small meals throughout the day. Reduce portion sizes, remove white bread and replace with whole grains and make sure each meal contains at least one portion of fruit and - or vegetables. Healthy food doesn't have to be expensive in the least bit, and you can get an abundance of low priced fruit and veggies, like apples, bananas, potatoes and peas.

Take a look at your current lifestyle and make a small list of everything you do that is not good for your health. This could be anything, from eating too much junk food or drinking too much caffeine, to smoking or drinking. Start the process of breaking these habits one by one. Some will be easy, while others may take months or maybe years to get rid of and eradicate completely from your life, but the sooner you start fighting, the better.


Some addictions (like smoking, drugs or alcohol) are incredibly bad not only to your health, but also to your pocketbook. If you smoke and/or drink, start by cutting back on how many drinks you have, or cigarettes you smoke, in a day, and if necessary, seek medical advice and assistance to make further steps towards stopping completely.

This can be pretty much anything that is physical, like walking, cycling, running, swimming to weightlifting, etc. This too does not have to be expensive, and you can get a great work out without joining any costly gyms. Most of these exercises are inexpensive, and just doing a cardiovascular exercise, like walking, jogging, or walking on a treadmill a few times a week will do your body (and heart) good.

The phrase “along the line” suggests that people should have a common and united feeling of nationality and they should not be divided and discriminated against based on their ethnicity, culture, religion, politics, and economy. 

Space and time in a psychological sense means all 4 dimensions of the universe. It means that everywhere will be happiness when people are united. It is the Poet's belief that the people's life would be filled with happiness. They will be able to live in harmony and peace. The consequence will be a wonderful experience. Many people in Nigeria are united and they know how bad things have been in the past. Now, they are united by the common motto of nationalism and are on the way to making a happy harvest.

3. Write long answers to the following questions. (2X5=10)

a. Sketch the character of a Famous Actress. How is she different from Earnest Woman? (A Matter of Husbands)

Ans : ‘A matter of husbands’ is a famous one act play which shows how the talented actors and actresses can make the audience fall into illusion. The central characters of this play are the famous actress and the Earnest young woman.  

A well-known actress is a wise woman. She is well-known and quite attractive, as her name suggests. On the exterior, she seems innocent and harmless, yet she is a cruel and wicked person on the inside. Because Alfred was discovered at her house, the manner she tells that lady that her husband isn't cheating on her reveals that she is lying. It demonstrates that she has had inappropriate relations with other men.


Unlike the famous actress, Earnest Young Woman is shown in "A Matter of Husband" as a simple and scared woman who was easily fooled by the actress's fabricated story. She comes to the actress's house in tears because she thinks her husband is cheating on her because he is having an affair with the actress. After hearing her explanations, she comes back happy. She believes the story about how her husband tried to make her jealous to get her back. She trusted her and did not ask a single question. 

We (the audience) finally found out that her husband was in her room at the end of the story. 

In nutshell, the simple distinction between the famous actress and the ordinary lady was that the actress was smarter than an Earnest Young Woman.


b. Write a short summary of the poem “A Day” by Emily Dickinson.

Ans: Emily Dickinson's poem “A Day” is recounted from the viewpoint of a child. A child's perspective of dawn and sunset is presented in this poem. This poem can be interpreted by two means, one is by it’s direct meaning and another one is by metaphysical sense. The poem represents the passage from life to death.

In literal sense, morning sun means birth, day means life and sunset means death. Like we don’t know how we die, the speaker also doesn't have any idea how the sun set

The speaker starts by describing how the sun rises. The sunrays seem like a ribbon in the air. In the sunshine, the church steeples become a rich violet, like amethyst. Sunrise news spreads like a squirrel run. This lovely scene shows how swiftly things happen after the sun rises or in real life, how fast life goes on after someone’s birth.

The opening verse is cheerful and promising. In the second verse, the hills loosen their bonnets. The mist/fog that covers the hills disappears as the sun rises. After that, the bobolinks start their morning singing.

The speaker loses confidence in describing the beautiful sunset. When the sun sets, a purple gate emerges. The yellow kids climb the purple stile. The purple stile denotes a horizon, a line between land and sky. The owners of the child's take them to their home. It somehow tries to mean that the god takes us to paradise after our death.

A dominie leads the yellow lads and girls away at night. The dominie is a priest or a schoolmaster who softly raises the nighttime bars and safely returns the youngsters. Day is figuratively ended by night (death). Evening bars represent safety.

Overall, In this poem, metaphors are evident and spiritual. It offers insight into nature and life by Emily Dickinson. This is a great poem about life and death.


4. What is the most useful thing that you have ever learnt? Write two or three paragraphs about it. (7)

Most useful thing that I have ever learnt

The ability to communicate in English is by far the most valuable skill I've learnt. When you can speak in a language other than your own and others can understand you, it's a wonderful feeling.


It has taken me at least 15 years to learn English well, and it hasn't been an easy road since English instruction in Nepali schools (specially the government ones) is rare to nonexistent. The best assistant for me was Television. I used to watch a lot of English movies, cartoons, and shows and it definitely helped me shape my vocabulary and learn better english.


I was always a bookworm when I was a child. I used to have a lot of english books and also a big oxford dictionary. I used to study a lot of stories and make English familiar to my brain. Whenever I got stuck on some words, I used to search for them right then in the dictionary and started to use it in my own English so I could better familiarize with it. 


I never left any single chance to talk with tourists. Being a citizen of a tourism-blessed nation, a lot of people used to come to the locale as well. Whenever any tourist, I used to approach them, introduce myself, and start talking with them, without caring Grammar, pronunciations, or coherency. This way, It really helped me polish my English. In addition, I often watch English-language films in order to enhance my language skills.


English is widely studied all over the globe, as we all know, and we must do our best to master it.


It's a great language to be able to express oneself in and read and comprehend to the whole world, and I'm as enthusiastic about learning it as I used to be.

Some school friends of mine are visiting your village soon for a week's touring holiday. They would like to travel around your local area and understand its history. Can you tell me about some of the places they could visit please? What's the best way to travel around-bus, car, bike or on foot?



Write a reply email to Nitesh.  ( 8 )


From: Ram

To: Nitesh

Subject: Re: Holiday

Hi Nitesh!

Great to hear from you, and what a treat it will be to see some of your old school pals!

They've found a beautiful location for a week-long vacation. There are several tourist attractions in our Baglung.

Baglung offers plenty of natural and cultural resources for exploration. Kalika Temple is the first spot they may visit while also enjoying the longest suspension bridge of Nepal, ie. Baglung - Aduwabari Bridge. 

If you guys want adventure, our place is the best pick for you. Here, you can enjoy rafting in Kaligandaki River. Not only this, Kushma- Balewa taller bridges, rope-cycling, bungee-jumping etc are some of the adventurous things you guys can do here.

Panchakot is another must see place in Baglung. They may witness Dhawalagiri Himal's beautiful view from there. Another lovely lake may be found away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Begnas Lake is a secluded and tranquil spot. The stroll around the lake here is really restorative.

Another interesting site to see is BhairavSthan Mandir. Trekking on foot to that temple would definitely help you collect some of the best unforgettable memories of your trip. 

In Baglung, you and your traveling companions may engage in activities including hiking, trekking, boating, and paragliding. With regards to cuisine, there is a wide range of options available in this area. Both Green Momo and Thakali khana are quite common dishes, and I highly suggest both. 

Traveling about Baglung is best done on foot if you want to get the most out of this place. 

Looking forward to meeting you all!




6. Many students in Nepal tend to choose to study abroad. To what extent does this trend benefit the students and the country? What are the drawbacks? Write an essay to explain your thoughts in about 300 words. ( 10 )


Advantages and Disadvantages of Studying Abroad

Studying abroad is a dream for many Nepalese students. Traveling and getting a taste of a different culture may be a life-changing event. It contributes to making learning an experience. You'll be able to adapt to the new situation and have more fun at the same time. 

A new way of life and a new culture broaden your perspective on the value of the seemingly little details of everyday existence. To give you an idea of how minor things may add up while you're living overseas, here's an example. After studying German culture and language as a major, I didn't anticipate much difference between Germany and the United States, which are both more Western-style countries. Even though society is similar in both nations, the more time I spend living here and integrating, the more I observe how even tiny changes in behavior or the availability of specific services or goods can alter the way you see a place, your life, and the lives of everyone else. 

Additionally, learning a new language may be quite beneficial and provide a plethora of new opportunities. Making new friends and experiencing new things because you can interact with individuals who don't speak your original language is not only enjoyable, but it also gives you a greater awareness of how even the most minute differences in communication can have a significant impact.

Seeing more of the world makes you appreciate everything more, and seeing new things that aren't comparable to what you're used to back home simply makes you feel better.

In developed nations, there are new benefits. Healthcare quality is much higher. With student health insurance, which costs just a few dollars per day, students can see a doctor whenever they need one, undergo certain procedures, and even stroll into clinics for emergencies without paying anything.

The salaries are also often greater, so one may make more money than one spends studying abroad, particularly when fantastic options for scholarships, grants, stipends etc. exclusively earmarked for study abroad students are taken into consideration.

Every coin has it’s two sides. Without a doubt, the most significant drawback is the inability to participate in activities at home, particularly with family. This is less of an issue for other students, particularly those who are just planning to remain for a semester or a year. But, it's the most challenging and frustrating element of studying abroad.One of the less visible drawbacks of long-term international relocation is the difficulty in establishing a sense of home in each new location. 

In addition, depending on your long-term goals, you may have to put in more effort than you'd want. Some students are fortunate enough to complete their study abroad experience during their final year, when they still have a limited number of courses to complete before graduation. This gives them plenty of time to relax and enjoy their adventure. For other students, the opportunity to travel the globe may be overshadowed by the fact that they must work on a new major or take more classes in order to complete their present degree in a reasonable amount of time while abroad. 

As previously indicated, much of this will be determined by your course of study, your origins, and your intended destination. Studying abroad may be the finest choice you ever make if you know exactly what you're getting yourself into and choose a location you believe you'll love. It's also a huge plus for future job applications, especially for those with a global outlook. Not to mention, it looks amazing on resumes! If you're not already a global citizen, you may become one after studying abroad.

Not only this, some unethical practices may be adopted in their home countries as they learn and adapt to new cultural norms as a result of this constant exposure to other cultures. Because of this, students need to be very aware of what is good and wrong for themselves. The fact that they will be away from family and friends may cause them to feel alone and homesick. Experiencing prejudice and harassment in a new environment is another challenge for students. They'll need to be resilient and vigilant in order to be safe in such a scenario.

Most of the students who study abroad do not return to Nepal. You should consider relocating to another country if you're planning to do that. There are several benefits of studying abroad, but there are also a few drawbacks. Is it a good idea for pupils to take it or not?
