TCS NQT Reading Comprehension Quiz-1

Question 1

Time: 00:00:00
Nothing happens – the march of darkness halts at the door to the house, and all the clamor of fading falls silent, makes а thick skin like on hot milk cooling. The contours of the buildings against the backdrop of the sky stretch out into infinity, slowly lose their sharp angles, corners, edges. The dimming light takes the air with it – there’s nothing left to breathe. Now the dark soaks into my skin. Sounds have curled up inside themselves, withdrawn their snail’s eyes; the orchestra of the world has departed, vanishing into the park.

Question 6

Time: 00:00:00
Good health is a boon. It is the real jewel of life, the most precious possession of man. If a man loses his health, the world loses all its charms for him. A good wealth of health can be obtained in a number of ways. It needs regular exercise, good food, good thoughts, and cleanliness. A healthy person does not spend money on medicines and visiting doctors. Just opposite, a sluggish person is another form of disease.

The simplest and most traditional definition of health is that it is the freedom of sickness and diseases. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, health is physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease. Next to life itself, good health is the most precious gift and is necessary for a purposeful existence.

‘Sound mind in a sound body’ is an old saying. Healthy people can work for long hours without getting tired. They can enjoy all the pleasures of life, whereas unhealthy people can’t. The world has no charm for them. They are always worried due to their physical complications. Wealth has no importance for them.

What is the reason behind a man's worldly possessions?

Unhappy mind

Unhappy mind

Proper Well-being
