Answer :

That day my father came home with a kitten and it was the cutest animal that I have ever seen! After a lot of thinking, we all agreed to name him Dumpy. It soon became very friendly with the household and I also gave him milk from time to time. But things starting to go down when my mother noticed that some food had disappeared. During the next few days, we started noticing scratches on furniture and our socks being turned into shreds. It thus became clear to us that these were all a result of Dumpy’s misbehavior. From being tired of all this, my mother gave away Dumpy to one of our neighbors. Although this made me sad at the beginning, I have realized that it’s for the best.

Read the passage given below and complete the statements that follow choosing the most appropriate options from those given below.

Cheraw is the most colourful Mizo dance. Bamboos are used in this dance. Hence the dancer moves by stepping alternatively in and out from between and across a pair of horizontal bamboos, held against the ground by people sitting face to face at either side. They tap the bamboos open and close in rhythmic beats. Two bases support the bamboos, placed horizontally one at each end. The bamboos, when clapped, produce a shaip sound, which forms the rhythm of the dance. It indicates the timing of the dance as well. The dancers step in and out to the beats of the bamboos with ease and grace. The patterns and stepping of the dance have many variations. Sometimes the stepping are made in imitation of the movements of birds, sometimes the swaying of trees and so on.


Little is known about the origin of Cheraw. It may be possible that the forefathers of the Mizos brought it with them when they left home in far east- Asia. Cheraw is performed on any occasion these days. But so goes the legend. It used to be performed in earlier times only to ensure a safe passage for a dead child to paradise. Cheraw is, therefore, a dance of sanctification and redemption performed with great care, precision and elegance.
