Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions no. 41 to 45 given below it:

The Election Commission and political leaders have been trying to sell the idea of voting to the people by telling them that casting their ballot is their civic duty, a responsibility they must shoulder. This is entirely the wrong approach and the wrong choice of words. Terms like ‘duty’ and ‘responsibility’, laudable as they are, have connotations of the wearisome burdens that the common man or Aam Admi must labour under in day to day life. The last thing that the common man wants to hear about is yet another duty, yet another chore that must be performed.

How does one turn a dreary chore into an exciting enterprise? By doing what Mark Twain’s Tom Sawyer did when he was given the task of painting the family fence. He went at the job with such gusto that he convinced his watchers that painting fences was a fun activity, and soon had them willingly do the chore for him.

Those who want the common man to vote, should use Tom Sawyer’s carrot of exciting entertainment instead of the stick of stem duty. For most of the time, so called common citizens are acutely aware – both in the metaphorical as well as literal sense, thanks to frequent electricity failures – that they are quite powerless.

However, the one occasion they can turn tables on their rulers and wrest power from them is on voting day, when ejecting a smug incumbent from office or giving a brash contender a well-deserved comeuppance. It becomes as enjoyable and satisfying a spectator-cum-participatory sport as watching Sachin hit a sixer. Just as cricket has its glorious uncertainties, elections with its inglorious uncertainties can provide greater sport.

Like painting Tom Sawyer’s fence, elections can be made entertaining and empowering activity. It should be an invitation to the populace to come and enjoy the process of pushing in or pushing out a campaigning hopeful.

  1. In the passage the writer is referring to some vital issues. Choose the correct options.

(a) Election is not a mere civic duty.

(b) Voting should not only be a duty or responsibility.

(c) Common citizens are aware of their powerlessness.

(d) Common citizens can enjoy voting as a sport.

(1) Only a and b

(2) Only b and c

(3) None of these

(4) All of these

  1. Choose the correct options. When Tom Sawyer was given the difficult job to paint the fence alone, people willingly came forward to paint because

(a) He called them to join him as a duty

(b) He went about his job with great enthusiasm

(c) His work attracted others as a fun activity

(d) He made people aware of their failures

(1) Only a and b

(2) Only b and c

(3) Only c and d

(4) Only a and c

  1. The phrase ‘carrot and stick’ means

(1) Dealing with a horse

(2) Chew a stick

(3) Reward and punishment
