प्रश्न 1   Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow
It is very important that you should have a clear and. accurate conception of the subject of the essay before you attempt to write on it - what exactly it is and (equally important) what it is not.
Some subjects are so simple that you can scarcely make a mistake about them; but some want looking into to define them exactly. For example, "The uses of computers." The subject is not how computers work. Nor is it the history of computers. Yet some students, carelessly reading the subject, might easily take up a large part of their essay with such topics.
In a short-school-essay there is no room for irrelevant matter. You have to come to the point at once, and start away with the subject. The subject in this case is the uses of computers in offices, in industries, in aircraft, in space craft, etc. It is, therefore, very necessary that you should define the subject clearly in your mind, or you may waste much time and paper in writing on more or less irrelevant matters.

Q. ‘Exact’ is synonym of one of the following words used in the passage.

 (अ) scarcely
 (ब) irrelevant
 (स) conception
 (द) accurate
