PASSAGE: I entered the room where the corpse lay, and was led up to the coffin. How can I describe my sensations on beholding it? I feel yet parched with horror, nor can I reflect on that terrible moment without shuddering and agony, that faintly reminds me of the anguish of the recognition. The trial, the presence of the magistrate and witnesses, passed like a dream from my memory, when I saw the lifeless form of Henry Clerval stretched before me. I gasped for breath; and, throwing myself on the body, I exclaimed, “Have my murderous machinations deprived you also, my dearest Henry of life? Two I have already destroyed; other victims await their destiny: but you, Clerval, my friend, my benefactor The human frame could no longer support the agonizing suffering that I endured, and 1 was carried out of the room in strong convulsions. A fever succeeded to this. I lay for two months on the point of death; my ravings, as 1 afterwards heard, were frightful; I called myself the murderer of William, of Justine, and of Clerval. Sometimes 1 entreated my attendants to assist me in the destruction of the fiend by whom I was tormented; and, at others, I felt the fingers of the monster already grasping my neck, and screamed aloud with agony and terror. Fortunately, as I spoke my native language, Mr. Kirwin alone understood me; but my gestures and bitter cries were sufficient to affright the other witnesses. Why did I not die? More miserable than man ever was before, why did I not sink into forgetfulness and rest? Death snatches away many blooming children, the only hopes of their doting parents; how many brides and youthful lovers have been one day in the bloom of health and hope, and the next a prey for worms and the decay of the tomb! Of what materials was I made, that 1 could thus resist so many shocks, which, like the turning of the wheel, continually renewed the torture?

(b) The violent body language of the narrator.
(c) The mental torments of the narrator expressed by a violent body language.
(d) The hallucinations in the mind of the narrator, arising out of his grief.
165. The narrator’s ravings could have been taken as an admission of guilt of being responsible for the death Henry Clerval, but for the fact that:
(a) He was speaking in his native language.
(b) He was suffering immensely.
(c) He was physically ill.

166. The word ‘machination’ means:
(a) Inventing a new machine.
(b) A crafty scheme.
(c) Foul intention.
(d) Understanding the working of something or someone.
167. The narrator appears to make several references to his own suffering, but ignores the suffering undergone by those he claimed to have murdered, or others bereaved by the deaths. Considering this, the style of the passage may best be described as:
(d) Self Centered
(I) I savor the remoteness and the rare times I’m alone on this muscular river in southern Utah, a precious ribbon of wild water between reservoirs and the suck holes of industry and agriculture.
(II) Officially, I’m here to have my peace disturbed. Floaters must have a permit to run this stretch of river. During the peak season a ranger checks lotterydrawn launch dates and a short list of gear related to safety and environmental protection. The permit system allows the federal agency in charge to hold numbers of floaters to a maximum of about 10,000 a year, set in 1979, when use increased 250 percent in just three seasons. Each year since, the actual number of people down the river has hovered close to this ceiling, which the agency believes is the river’s capacity for a “quality wilderness experience.” Socially, if not physically, however, “wilderness experience” seems to have become an illusion if not irrelevant. Right now I’m the voluntary ranger managing both the illusion and the irrelevance.
(III) Most people accept the permit system as a panacea for the explosion in numbers of river runners and the consequences for a fragile riparian corridor. Others find regulation about as painless as an IRS audit.
(IV) They see the Southwest as a region of federally neutered rivers where a person is no longer free to kill himself in a four-foot rubber ducky pulling an inner tube piled with beans, testosterone, and a small machete….
(V) The boat ramp is swarming with people and vehicles to be shuttled to the takeout. Someone’s dog is throwing up what appears to be rabbit parts. I’m approached by a pickup driven by a man waving a spray nozzle and hose hooked to a large barrel of allegedly lethal chemicals. He’s from county weed control, he says. Have I seen the loathsome pepperweed? Not a leaf, I lie.
(VI) Cheerfully I sign the permit of the outfitter who specializes in theme river trips – stress management seminars, outings for the crystal fondlers or fingernail technicians of East Jesus, New Jersey, overcoming, at last, their irrational fear of Nature. Today’s load is priests troubled by a lapsed faith – pale, anxious, overweight fellows in the early stages of heatstroke. 1 also check gear and answer questions about bugs, snakes, scorpions, camps, rapids and Indians (one side of the river is reservation land). Do I live here fulltime? they ask. No, I respond, except for an occasional shift at the put-in, I’m on the river eight days out of sixteen, six months a year.
(VII) …… Some rafts look as if they barely survived World War II.
(VIII) Others are outfitted with turbo-dynamic chrome-plated throw lines, heatwelded vinyl dry-bags, cargo nets spun from the fibers of dew-fed arachnids from Borneo, horseshoes, volleyball sets, sauna tents, coffin-sized coolers stuffed with sushi, a small fleet of squirt boats, whining packs of androgynous progeny who prefer to be at home fulfilling their needs electronically. All of this gear is color-coordinated With SPF 14 sunscreen and owned by business majors in Styrofoam pith helmets and Lycra body gloves, in which they were placed at birth. Once loaded, their boats are pieces of personal architecture, stunning but nevertheless stuck on the sandbar six feet out from the boat ramp after a dramatic send- off.
168. The author of the aforesaid passage may be best described as:
(a) Narrator of the events of the past.
(b) An ecologist concerned at the exploitation of the river.
(c) A ranger making an official report of the events.

(d) Children who would rather be playing video games.
172. The effect of the last sentence of the passage may be described as:
