Answer question Nos. 13 to 18 based on either the English passage or the Marathi passage : In the lack of good knowledge of grammar, it is impossible for one to write correctly and effectively. It must be borne in mind that all well-informed and knowledgeable persons judge a man’s mind by his writing or speaking. Indeed, to acquire the knowledge of grammar is not an easy task. The grammar is not like arithmetic — a science consisting of several distinct departments, some of which may be dispensed with; it is a whole and the whole must be learnt, or no part is learnt. Its learning demands much reflection and much patience, but when one task is performed it is performed for life, and in everyday of that life it will be found to be, in a greater or less degree, a source of pleasure or profit, or both together. The learning of grammar needs no bodily exertion; it exposes the student to no cold, no hunger, no suffering of any sort. What more, the study does not affect the hours of business, nor the hours of necessary exercise, but the hours usually spent on the tea and coffee shops and in the mere gossip which accompanies them. The wasted hours of only one year, employed in the study of English grammar, would make you a correct speaker and writer for the rest of your life. One needs no school, no study room, no expenses and not many tuitions and coachings of any sort. If you are willing, you can accomplish this undertaking with ease whether you are poor, pressed with business or other conveniences and have many other sorts of problems.
