SSC Stenographer Last Year Paper Question No: 19

We live in a world where we are surrounded by constantly streaming images and voices of negative and rarely positive incidents. The constantly changing reality around us- the political scenario, the economic reforms, the communal tension, the climatic change, apart from personal setbacks and tragedies creates a depressing atmosphere and thus we are unable to remain in a happy and cheerful mood. Now, the question arises what exactly is happiness? To some, happiness is the state of mind where person is fully satisfied with respect to his needs and desires. While to some others, happiness is when the things are happening according to their whims. Thus, they depend upon circumstances which will make them happy or sad. For instance, the new car, the diamond ring or cute outfit makes a person happy. Indeed, it will be short-lived and will leave him longing for the next high. As of now the new car’s colour fades, the diamond collects dust, the outfits become outdated, the happiness is lost. After then, the new desires crop up and as we all know that a person’s desires are unlimited and rarely all the desires are fulfilled, thus making a person distressed as and when any of the desire is not fulfilled. This emphasizes upon the fact that fulfilment of a person’s desires decide the person’s happiness. True happiness is thus what we call LONG LASTING well-being state of mind and which never fades away. To attain true happiness in our life, have positive thoughts, meditate, accept situations as it is, and stop worrying.

According to the passage, a person’s desires are _____________

Option A : unlimited

Option B : necessities

Option C : not fulfilled

Option D : constant

Option A: unlimited

SSC Stenographer Group C and D Question No: 20

Born in Prague in 1883 to a Jewish father who excelled in business, Franz Kafka, along with his three sisters, had a comfortable childhood. He earned a doctorate of law degree by the time he was twenty-three and began working for a government agency, where he distinguished himself by publishing reports about worker safety that appeared in professional journals. He retired as Senior Secretary and was awarded a medal of honor for his contribution to the establishment and management of hospitals and rest homes. To his friends, Kafka was warm and charming. He had several girlfriends and two serious relationships, but he never married. Instead, Kafka devoted his life to writing, publishing his first story in 1909. He was well known among the small literary circles of Prague, and he often read his stories out loud to groups of friends. Kafka continued writing until his death at forty-one from tuberculosis in 1924, correcting the final proofs of the story “A Hunger Artist” while on his deathbed. In the world of literature, Kafka holds a coveted distinction. Like William Shakespeare and George Orwell, he is one of the few authors whose name has become an integral part of the vocabulary used to characterize not only other literature but also the workings of the world around him. The term “Kafkaesque” has come to describe a nightmarish atmosphere resulting from pervasive, sinister, impersonal forces; feelings of guilt, fear, and loss of identity; and
the sense of evil that permeates the logic of ruling powers.

What is “Kafkaesque”?

Option A : a sense of evil

Option B : a nightmarish atmosphere

Option C : working of the world

Option D : coveted distinction
