1 . Read the following passage carefully andanswer the questions given below it. Certain words are printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
One day Hira rode his horse to the village fair. On his way back he met Somendra, the merchant. The merchant was a crafty man, ready to do anything to earn some money. The villagers knew this. In fact no one knew what trick he would be up to next. Now, Hira was poor and had no one in the world to call his own except a beautiful, white horse. He loved it more than anything else in the world. The merchant had his eye on the horse for a long time and tried to think of a way to get it for himself. Seeing Hira, the merchant thought, 'Hira is a simpleton. Let me see if I can trick him out of his house.' So he said to Hira, 'Yo live all along. How do you manage? What does a young boy like you need with a horse? Sell it to me and I shall make you rich in return.' Hira replied, 'No I don't want to sell my horse.' But the merchant refused to give up so easily. He offered Hira more money. Finally, when the offer reached five hundred gold coins, Hira paused and said, 'Five hundred good coins seems like a good price. But I have a condition. If you agree to it, I shall give you my horse.' 'What is it?' the merchant asked impatiently. 'Give me the money right now and I shall give you my horse when I have given you ten lashes, 'said Hira. 'Is that all?' asked the merchant. He could easily bear ten lashes. After all, he would resell the horse for over a thousand gold coins in the market. He would take twenty lashes for such a gain. He agreed instantly. He ran home and got the money for Hira and brought along his whip as well. Hira counted the money carefully, He, then, took the whip and the lashes fell on the merchant's back in quick succession. By the eighth lash the merchant was almost in tears but he told himself that there were only two lashes to go and the horse would be his! The merchant held his breath waiting for the final lash. But Hira had mounted his horse and was riding of, 'Wait!' shouted the merchant in anger. 'What about the tenth lash? Where are you going with the horse? We had a deal.' Hira stopped and said, 'I agreed to give you the horse only after I had given you ten lashes. But it is upsetting my horse. I'll give you the last lash later. Till then goodbye!' 'Come back you cheat!' the merchant shouted. But the crowd that had gathered around agreed with Hira. A deal was a deal. Till the last was given the horse could not belong to the merchant. Hira rode away richer by five hundred gold coins and Somendra waited in vain for several days for the final lash which never came!
