Note : Answer all the questions.

1. Read the passage given below and answer the

questions that follow :

Eight years might have passed since the visit to

Baku that gave Narendra Modi the idea, but his

chess initiative is still a good one. For one, it has a

sound basis. Baku has produced eight

grandmasters through the years, including one of

the game's all - time greats, Garry Kasparov. This

has been possible only because the children in the

city are introduced to chess at an early age. And

independently; faster creative thinking enhance

memory, language and mathematical abilities,

and develop analytical skills to name just a few.

The benefits of ensuring that schools

introduce their students to chess are thus obvious.

The costs involved on the other hand, are

negligible. As far as equipment goes, chess sets

are all that is required, which are inexpensive

compared to the paraphernalia needed to play

any other popular sport such as cricket or hockey.

Training teachers is not difficult either with 1200

already having been trained in Gujarat.

All schools already have physical training

classes. Incorporating chess into them will ensure

that there is no extra load on the children.

Supplementing education and physical sports

with an extra curricular activity of this kind will

go a long way towards fostering well rounded

development. If in the process, the unhealthy

dominance of certain sports that cripples the

growth of all others can be tempered, that is all to

the good.
