Directions (Questions 96 to 100): Read the given passage and answer the questions.
Many speakers ignore their hearers; stare over their heads or at the floor. They seem to be delivering a soliloquy. There is no sense of communication, no give and take between the audience and the speaker. That kind of attitude would kill a conversation; it also kills a speech. Good delivery is conversational tone and directness enlarge (d) Talk to the Community Chest just as you would to John Smith. What is the Chest Committee, after all, but a collection of John Smiths? Everyone has the ability to deliver a talk. If you question this statement, try it out for yourself; knock down the most ignorant man you know; when he gets on his feet will probably say some things, and his manner of saying them will be almost flawless. We want you to take that same naturalness with you when you speak in public. To develop it, you must practice. Do not imitate others. If you speak spontaneously you will speak differently from anyone else in the world. Put your
own individuality, your own characteristic manner into your delivery.

A two-year dilly-dallying on the part of the Maharashtra government to defend its stand vis- a-vis protecting an unauthorized dargah at the tomb of 17th century warrior Afzal Khan has led the Supreme Court to order its demolition. Milind Ekbote, a former corporator from city, won the legal battle stretching over about five years as the apex court dismissed a special leave petition filed by the state against the demolition of the dargah at the foothills of Pratapgad fort. The Supreme Court order came after the state government failed to file an affidavit within the set deadline of 15 c mentioning its intention behind keeping the darj. intact.

Directions (Questions 106 to 110): Read the given passage and answer the questions.
There were—and are—two kinds of challenge. One is called a ‘peremptory’ challenge. This means that the accused can say ‘I object’ without giving any reason: and the juror has to stand down. The other is called challenge for ‘cause’. This means that the accused has to show good cause in order to justify his objection. ‘Peremptory’ challenge is more difficult to justify. Blackstone suggested that it is confined to capital cases where the accused may be sentenced to death if he is convicted. He should be able to object to a man if he does not like the look of him. Simplest and shortest is to abolish the right to make ‘peremptory’ challenges. The origin of this right, as I have shown, was in the days when the death penalty was inflicted for many offences. Blackstone felt it was justified in favorem vitae (in favour of life). The accused man knew nothing of the man to whom he objected. He had no good cause to urge why he should not be on the jury. He could only go by the ‘look of him’. That seems to me altogether an insufficient basis for giving the accused this right.

Directions (Questions 111 to 115): Read the given passage and answer the questions.
When the billion strong poor have no political freedom to agitate for prime needs, when despair drives chunks of people to turn militant in defence of their right to live in dignity and equal opportunity, the State, controlled by the proprietariat, would seek to suppress the proletariat by arbitrary laws. Another line adopted is to release police terror, regardless of human rights legality. Institutional protection of victims of State vio¬lence is often inadequate and repressive organs and violent gangs revel in assaults on people’s rights. Civilian morale slumps when the State itself takes sides. And courts look unperturbed at the harsh laws, however undemocratic or despotic they be, and basic freedoms become judicial casualty. The TADA, the MISA, the Emergency Laws et al, on which I will dwell later, are cases where lachryma tions about breaches of human rights have found poor response and even brutal violations pass judicial scrutiny.

Directions (Questions 116 to 120): Read the given passage and answer the questions.
Death Penalty only in Rarest Cases; SC ‘Awarding of life imprisonment would be a rule, while ‘death’ would be the exception. The term ‘rarest of rare’ case which is the consistent determinative rule declared by this court, itself suggests that it has to be an exceptional case’, said a bench comprising Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice Swatanter Kumar in its judgment on Tuesday. Commuting the death sentence awarded to four convicts into life term the bench said, ‘most of the heinous crimes under the IPC are punishable by death penalty or life imprisonment. That by itself does not suggest that in all such offences, penalty of death alone should be awarded’. The law contemplates recording of special reasons and, therefore, the expression ‘special’ has to be given a definite meaning and connotation. The court has to consider matters like nature of the offence, how and under what circumstances it was committed, the extent of brutality with which the offence was committed, the motive for the offence.
