1. S1: The commonest form of forgetfulness, I suppose, occurs in the matter of posting letters.
S6: Weary of holding it in my hand, I then put it for safety into one of my pockets and forget all about it.

P: So common is it that I am always reluctant to trust a departing visitor to post an important letter.
Q: As for myself, anyone who asks me to post a letter is a poor judge of character.
R: Even if I carry the letter in my hand I am always past the first pillar box before I remember that I ought to have posted it.
S: So little I rely on his mem?,ry that I put him on his oath before handing the letter to him.


2. S1: In other words, grammar grows and changeg, and there is no such thing as correct use of English for the past, the present and the future.
S6: All the words that man has invented are divided into eight classes, which are called parts of speech.

P: "The door is broke."
Q: Yet this would have been correct in Shakespeare's time.
R: Today, only an uneducated person would say, "My arm is broke."
S: For example, in Shakespeare's play Hamlet, there is the line.


3. S1: American private lives may seem shallow.
S6: This would not happen in China, he said.

P: Students would walk away with books they had not paid for.
Q: A Chinese journalist commented on a curious institution: the library.
R: Their public morality, however, impressed visitors.
S: But in general they returned them.


4. S1: He could not rise.
S6: It was colder than usual.

P: All at once, in the distance, he heard an elephant trumpet.
Q: He tried again with all his might, but to no use.
R: The next,moment he was on his feet.
S: He stepped into the river.


5. S1: Go to the library and see the clerk.
S6: He stamps the books with a date.

P: When you have chosen the books you wish to take home, you take them to the clerk with the tickets.
Q: You will probably have to sign a form promising to take care of the books.
R: Then you are usually given two or three tickets with your name and address on them.

S6: Then he continued to draw on it.

P: But when the fit of coughing was over, he replaced it between his lips.

7. S1: Welcome to Madam Tussaud's.

R: Don't be surprised at anything you see here.
S: See how many you can recognise.


8. S1: The role of the precious yellow metal is undergoing a dramatic change.
S6: Again, it would not be an economic proposition to buy and sell gold ornaments as an instrument of investment as buying would be costlier and selling will be at a discount.

P: In developing countries like India, where gold is used mainly for ornaments, a distinct change in attitude is in the offing.
Q: Slowly, the use of gold in the form of ornaments will be on the decline and even if gold prices shoot up, women folk would not like to sell off their ornaments.
R: The yellow metal will soon be treated as an investment instrument.
S: The maxim, "Larger the gold reserves, richer the country" will not hold good for a long time.

Q: Then he stepped into the room.
R: He waited for a minute or two.
S: It opened easily and he peeped in.


10. S1: Growing up means not only getting larger, but also using our senses and our brains to become more aware of the things around us.
S6: In other words, we must develop and use our ability to reason, because the destruction or the preservation of the places in which we live depends on us.

P: Not only does he have a memory but he is able to think and reason.
Q: In this, man differs from all other animals.
R: Before we spray our roadside plants or turn sewage into our rivers, we should pause to think what the results of our actions are likely to be.
