PREFACE The Directorate of Education has decided to initiate the formulation of support material for ‘Problem Solving Assessment’

(PSA) for all the government school

students of class IX (2012-13). This handy tool is a part of our endeavor to enhance the research and analytical life skills ability. It is a widely acknowledged fact that the ability to apply basic concepts to solve application based problems in mathematics and science and to comprehend and analyse written text are the skills which ensure success in higher studies and professional growth. These life skills will greatly assist learners in acquiring high order thinking skills such as problem solving and decision making. It will greatly assist the learners to crack the public entrance examinations. Quantitative Reasoning, Qualitative Reasoning and Language Conventions will greatly help the students to understand arithmetic problems, use logic in form of relationships ,analogies and directions. All these items would develop creative thinking, decision making, critical thinking, problem solving and communicational skills. It would assess student’s ability to process, interpret and use information. At the same time it would increase the curiosity of students and help in their intellectual growth.

The Supervisor and the team which diligently put together the material thank the Directorate and the Examination Branch for their belief and support.

QUALITATIVE Passage Based MCQ Passage No. – 1 Disability refers to any kind of physical or mental incapacity that limits a person‟s ability to work. Yet it is seldom that we have thanked God for the gift of Good health and well being. The smallest actions like seeing the sunrise, brushing our teeth, popping peanuts into your mouth come so naturally and effortlessly, and Yet we are never satisfied, always discontented. It is not so for the disabled. For them it requires immense concentration, effort, will power, energy and a lot of time. Despite this, it could be a long way of perfection. It takes great courage and determination to cope with disability. We can make life easier for them by becoming more sensitive to their handicap, their needs and their problems. Feeling of pity or under sympathy will only shake their confidence. Give them encouragement, facilities and resources, and then watch them as they learn, earn, play, work and even start their families. Very often we find that a person lacking in one faculty is gifted in some other way. That‟s nature‟s way of maintaining balance. Some of the most beautiful greeting cards are made by disabled children, using one hand, one foot or even mouth. Nothing stops them from using their talent, intelligence and their knowledge. 1.
