the unforgettable history part 2 model question
PART-1: READING TEST
1. Read the passage and answer the questions A and B. [U-1, L-1]
Mr. Bhutto came here: he carried out discussions with us: he had said that the doors of negotiations had not been shut and that there would be further negotiations. I then had talks with other leaders: I said to them. “Come and sit down with us; let’s create a constitution for ourselves through discussions.” But Mr. Bhutto declared that if West Pakistani members came here the Assembly would end up as a slaughterhouse. He claimed that whoever came here would be slaughtered. He said that if anyone showed up here all shops from Peshawar to Karachi would be shut down.
I declared that the Assembly would continue to meet. But suddenly on the 1st of March the Assembly was shut down. Mr. Yahya Khan called the session of the Assembly in his capacity as the President and I declared I would be attending it. Mr. Bhutto said he wouldn’t be part of it. Thirty-five members of the Assembly came from West Pakistan to take part in its proceedings. But it was dissolved all of a sudden. The blame was put on the people of Bengal, the finger was pointed at me!
After the Assembly’s session was prorogued, the people of this country protested. I told them. “Observe the General Strike we have called peacefully.” I told them “Shut down all mills and factories.” Our people responded to my call. They came to the streets spontaneously. They expressed their firm determination to carry out the struggle peacefully.
What have we got in return? Those who brought arms with our money to defend us from external enemies are now using those arms on the poor, the wretched, the downtrodden people of the land. Bullets are being aimed at their hearts. We constitute the majority in Pakistan: but whenever we Bengalis have tried to assume power they have used force on us.
I have had a talk with Mr. Yahya Khan. I told him. “Mr. Yahya, you are the President of Pakistan: come and observe how the poor people of my country are being mowed down with bullets; come and see how our mothers are being deprived of their children: how my people are being massacred. Come, observe, and only then pass a judgment on what is going on.
He has apparently said that I had agreed to attend a Round Table Conference on the 10th of March. Didn’t I say a long time back: what is the point of another Round Table conference? Who will I sit with? Should I sit with those who have shed the blood of my people? He has suddenly dissolved the Assembly without carrying out any discussions with me; after sitting in a secret meeting for five hours he gave a speech where he has put all the blame on me. He has even blamed the Bengali people!

2. Read the passage and complete the table below with the given information.
Dreams have fascinated philosophers for thousands of years, but only recently have dreams been subjected to empirical research and scientific study. Chances are that you’ve often found yourself puzzling over the content of a dream, or perhaps you’ve wondered why you dream at all. First, let’s start by answering a basic question: What is a dream? A dream can include any of the images, thoughts and emotions that are experienced during sleep. Dreams can be extraordinarily vivid or very vague: filled with joyful emotions or frightening images: focused and understandable or unclear and confusing.
Why do we dream? What purpose do dreams serve? While many theories have been proposed, no consensus has emerged. Considering the time we spend in a dreaming state, the fact that researchers do not yet understand the purpose of dreams may seem baffling. However, it important to consider that science is still unraveling the exact purpose and function of sleep itself Some researchers suggest that dreams serve no real purpose, while others believe that dreaming is essential to mental, emotional and physical well-being.
3. Write a summary of the following text.
When I first met Sheikh Kamal at the end of 1969. he was already known everywhere in the country as the eldest son of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the undisputed leader of Bengalls, the man we love to think of as Friend of Bengal. I, on the other hand, was the son of middle-class parents and not exceptional in any sense. And yet when I was introduced to him in front of the entry to Kala Bhaban or the Arts Building of the University of Dhaka by a mutual friend, he greeted me with the friendliest of smiles and a warm handshake. He made me feel instantly that I would be his friend!
He was hugely popular in his own right by then. I already knew a lot about him from my Dhanmondi friends. For example, I knew that he was quite good at basketball and cricket, actively interested in music, always lively and full of good spirits. These qualities never deserted him. He was also known to be a tireless organizer- in student politics, of course, but also in the sports and cultural arenas. Although we never met regularly after 1971. he continued to be warm and friendly, whenever we met. Inside or outside the university.
