|English and Pedagogy MCQ Questions with Answer|
Directions (Q. 1-9): Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option.
It is easy to make a delicious-looking hamburger at home. But would this hamburger still look delicious after it sat on your kitchen table under very bright lights for six or seven-hour? If someone took a picture or made a video of this hamburger after the seventh hour, would anyone want to eat it? These are the questions that fast food companies worry about when they produce commercials. Video and photo shoot often last many hours. Because of this, the menu items in fast-food commercials are probably not actually edible.
As an example, the first step towards building the perfect commercial hamburger is the bun. The food stylist – a person employed by the company to make sure the products look perfect – sorts through hundreds of buns until he or she finds one with no wrinkles. Next, the stylist carefully rearranges the sesame seeds on the bun using glue and tweezers for maximum visual appeal. The bun is then sprayed with a waterproofing solution so that it will not get soggy from contact with other ingredients, the lights, or the humidity in the room. Next, the food stylist shapes a meat patty into a perfect circle and paints the outside with a mixture of oil, molasses and brown food colouring. Grill marks are either painted on or seared into the meat using hot metal skewers. Finally, the food stylist searches through dozens of tomatoes and heads of lettuce to find the best-looking produce. One leaf of the crispest lettuce and one centre slice of the reddest tomato are selected and then sprayed with glycerine to keep them looking fresh. So, the next time you see a delectable hamburger in a fast-food commercial, remember: you’re actually looking at glue, paint, raw meat, and glycerine! Regularly

Out of the night that covers me.
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods maybe
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeoning of chance

Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find, me unafraid.
…….William Ernest Henley
