    (Units 1–5)

    Q.1 A. In Unit 1, you were asked very basic questions such as when you received your Compulsory English – 1 study package what did you do? You were given the following three options.

    a. Kept the book somewhere and forgot about it.
    b. Started reading it from page one without looking at it as a whole.
    c. Turned a few pages, looked at the pictures, and looked at the content list or just went through the different headings to have an idea about it.

    Which of these three options did you prefer and why? Explain in 4-5 lines. (5)

    B. Read the content list given at the start of the prescribed text book Compulsory English-I 386 and write in our own words any five functions you think you will find in the book. (5)

    Example: I think the book will include……

    C. In Unit 1, we have given you a few tips to study effectively. We are sure that you have gone through them carefully. Which of the given guidelines do
    you already follow in your studies and find useful. Read them once again and write any ten in your own words in your assignment. Follow the example given below. (10)

    Example: I motivate myself to learn by setting a clear and achievable goal. If I am not motivated, I will not learn.

    Q.2 The purpose of introducing yourself to someone is to get an opportunity to know one another. Introduction helps in creating a warm and friendly environment. Suppose you are introducing yourself to your class fellows, write ten sentences containing key information about yourself.

    i. Could I ask you a favour
    ii. I was wondering if I could
    iii. Is it all right
    iv. Do you mind if I

    These expressions have been used, in the unit, by Khalid to seek his father’s permission to visit Abbottabad. Now if you want to attend your friend’s birthday party how would you seek permission from your mother? Write a very brief dialogue of about five exchanges of seeking and granting permission. (10)

    Q.4 What expressions would you use in the following situations to refuse permission? (10)

    iii. You are the head of any organization. One employee requests you for loan. There are already many names on the list.
    iv. One of your friends is in the habit of borrowing everything. One day he asks for your dress which you are planning to wear in your brother’s wedding ceremony.
    v. You are going on a picnic with your friends. One of the friends asks you for the coat which you have recently bought. You know your friend is very careless.

    Q.5 In Unit 3, you read how to guess the meaning of difficult words through context. The following passage contains some highlighted words the meaning of which we might not know but they are related to the words which almost all of us know. Read the passage two or three times and see if you can guess the meaning of those words. Write the meaning in your assignment and then use each of these words in sentences of your own. (10)


    On many occasions, all of use face situations where our personal interests and interests of other clash. This is the testing time. It mostly depends on our relationship with them. Are they close to you, people you can never think of hurting. Different people will handle the test situations differently. Some of us will safeguard our own interests and some will be more self-sacrificing, where as some might end up nowhere.

    Q.6 In Unit 3, you learnt some punctuation rules, for example, a simple sentence beings with a capital letter and ends with a full stop. Punctuate the following paragraph while keeping in mind the guidelines given in Unit 3. (10)

    Q.10 As you learnt in Unit 5 skimming is a useful reading skill which enables us to: (10)

     Read faster
     Form a general idea or opinion about the text
     Save our time

    Given below is a very interesting account of an author’s purpose of writing. Skim these passages quickly and answer the questions given at the end.

    Have you ever wondered why authors write? Sometimes they are inspired to create stories. Other times they write to provide information about an interesting topic. Some authors write to convince us about something. Whatever the circumstances, authors have reasons for writing; this is called, the “author’s purpose.” The three most common types of author’s purpose are: to entertain, to inform, and to persuade.

    Think about the last time a story made you laugh, cry, or tremble with fright. These types of stories are written with a particular purpose in mind: to entertain the reader. Authors write many kinds of stories to entertain, including humorous fiction, realistic fiction, fantasy, fairy tales, and fables. While fiction entertains, non-fiction has a different purpose.

    Many non-fiction writings or texts are written with the purpose of giving information about an interesting topic. Authors who write to inform must research their subject to ensure that they convey accurate information to the reader. Some examples of texts that inform are encyclopedia entries, news articles, expository non-fiction books, and interviews. All of these types of writing give information about certain topics.

    Sometimes authors write because they want to convince their readers about something. This is called argumentative, or persuasive, writing. Oftentimes, texts that are meant to persuade use specific techniques to make the reader care about the subject and to think about it in a certain way. These techniques might be found in letters to the editor, argumentative essays, or persuasive speeches. Next time you read a text, see if your can figure what the author is trying to tell you. It might be easier than you think. Just ask yourself: what is the author’s purpose?

    1. Which of the following is most likely the title of a passage in which the author’s purpose is to entertain?
    A. Why dogs are Smarter than Cats
    B. An interview with J.K. Rowling
    C. The Adventures of Waldo Wizard
    D. An Argument for Shorter Classes

    2. According to the passage, authors who write to inform want to
    A. provide information about a certain topic
    B. make the reader laugh, cry or scream
    C. Convince the reader to do something
    D. invite the reader to critique their work

    3. The author’s purpose in writing this passage is
    A. to persuade
    B. to convince
    C. to entertain
    D. to inform

    4. Based on its use in paragraph 3, it can be understood that the word convey belongs to which of the following word groups?
    A. document, chronicle, note
    B. communicate, pass on, relay
    C. hide, obscure, cover
    D. detect, locate, discover

    5. According to the passage, texts that are meant to persuade often

    A. do not get as much attention as texts that entertain or inform
    B. are very entertaining because they convince readers to laugh
    C. use specific techniques to make the reader care about the subject
    D. require a lot of research in order to ensure accuracy of information.

    Q.5 Read the following paragraph and identify the topic sentence, the concluding sentence and the supporting details. (10)

    Caused by a number of viruses, contracting cold is common among people throughout the world and there are innumerable signs, cures and precautions associated with it. Although numerous theories exist regarding how to “cure” the cold, including taking doses of vitamins C, there is a little evidence to support any of them. In case of suffering from cold, the doctors usually advise to take bed rest, plenty of fluids and aspirin for relief of pain and discomfort. These are some of the most tried and true remedies. The rule of thumb is to keep your resistance level high. Also, avoiding people with newly developed cold appears to be the best strategy, since it is mostly contagious during the first 24-hours. Depending on the nature of the symptoms and seriousness, patients need to take appropriate measures and all of us need to be especially alert during changing seasons as these are the times when cold strikes… so believe in proverb “Prevention is better than cure”!!!

    Q.9 All of us have memories, good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant, happy or sad. When we think about past, we feel nostalgic, which means remembering beautiful and happy past incident or events of life. Do you remember any such incidents or events which make you happy when you recall them during your free times? Write a paragraph based on such types of memories. (10)

Kindly guide me how many words should be written to answer short questions and how many pages for long answers as i am new in this system and this is my first semester.


    • Haris Mughal

      Yes, I think Book is enough for preparation, Short answer should be at least 10 lines. Means two short questions in one page is enough to get good marks and for longs answers they should be from 4 to 6 pages each.
