ICICI Bank Clerk Exam - Solved English Paper - Part 1

Directions-(Q. 1-15) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. Once a pundit was crossing a field and while walking, suddenly, he felt that there was something in his mouth so he immediately spat it out. It turned out to be a heron’s feather. He could not understand how and when it had gone into his mouth and it perplexed him a great deal. When he reached home he told his wife about the incident but asked her not to tell anyone lest somebody gets a bad impression about him. His wife was even more intrigued by the strange occurrence and felt the need to confide in someone. So sheswore her neighbour to secrecy and told her what had happened. Perhaps it was the way she told it, but her neighbour got the impression that several feathers had come out of the pundit’s mouth. She was shocked, however, she assured the pundit’s wife that such things could happen and advised her not to worry about it. Though the neighbour had sworn secrecy, she longed to tell someone. Later, she saw her friend passing by and told her the whole incident, but, she made it sound as if a whole heron had come out of the pundit’s mouth. “I have never heard such a thing,” said the friend, her eyes popping with excitement, “and he being a vegetarian and all that, but one can never tell… “She went away promising not to tell anyone but on the way she met the tailor and the whole story sort of tumbled out of her mouth. Perhaps in her excitement she said ‘herons’ instead of ‘heron’ or perhaps the tailor just imagined she had said ‘herons’ but when he told his wife about the pundit, sometime later, he was emphatic that a whole flock of herons had come out of the pundit’s mouth. And as the story spread, “herons” became “herons and other birds” and then “hundreds of birds of all shapes and sizes”. By evening the whole village and several other neighbouring villages had heard the story and people began to arrive in droves at the pundit’s house to witness the miraculous happenings there. The people started a huge commotion and called the pundit out of his house. The village head said, “Punditji, we have come to know that a miracle has taken place. You have the ability to produce hundreds of beautiful birds from your mouth. We would like to witness this miracle. Please do it once more.” The pundit steadfastly denied that any bird had come out of his mouth but nobody would believe him and everybody begged him to demonstrate his wonderful power of producing birds from his mouth. The pundit was dumbfounded at this request. He tried his best to convince the villagers that no such thing had happened but to no avail.
Finally in exasperation, he asked all of them to sit in front of his house and when they had done so, he ran out through the backdoor and hid in the jungle. He stayed there for several days till the excitement died down and the people realized that the news was false.”
The rumor spread like wild fire and caused inconvenience to the poor pundit for no fault of his.
