1. Read the part of the poem and do the tasks. [5]

This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I;
When showers betumble the chestnut spikes
And nestling fly:
And the little brown nightingale bills his best,
And they sit outside at ‘The Travellers Rest’,
And maids come forth spring-muslin dressed
and citizens dream of the south and west,
And so do I.
This is the weather the cuckoo shuns
and so do I;
When beeches drip in brown and duns.
And thresh and ply;
And hill-hid tides throb, throe and throe,
And drops on gate-bars hang in a row,
And rooks in families homewards go,
And so do I.
-Thomas Hardy

If you talk about festivals in Nepal you must talk about Teej, a festival celebrated mostly by married Hindu women. On the day of Teej, the women wear beautiful dresses and dazzling ornaments and pray for the health and long life of their husbands. The women who celebrate the festival neither eat nor drink anything, not even a single drop of water, on Teej day. Some of them invite purohitas to perform religious rituals, but most, dressed in their best saris and ornaments, go out into the street to sing and dance. Some also go to their maiti to see their relatives. They share their happiness and sorrow by telling the story of their successful marriage, or using their fate for not being able to make their husbands happy. Their songs reflect their mixed emotions.

Have you ever seen Chandi Naach ? If you are lucky, you might see it at Tudikhel, Kathmandu. But if you want to experience its real flavour, you have to go to the eastern hills of Nepal. It’s a festival which is celebrated by Rai people on Baishakh Purnima. They celebrate it with the help of their priests who perform rituals to worship their ancestors. Men and women, old and young, everybody participates and enjoys the occasion. First they form a circle by holding each other’s hands. With the beating of the drum people start dancing, at a slow pace in the beginning but faster as drum beats more quickly. The festival provides an opportunity for young Rai men and women to meet and get to know each other. Their song and dance reflects their simple life.

Psychology is the study of human behaviour of how people behave and why they behave in just the way they do. Its chief purpose is to know more about human nature and human activity. In the past psychology was defined as the science of soul or mind but it is not possible to have any direct knowledge of the soul or mind. While behaviour is objective and can be observed, both soul and mind are just assumptions, and even if we agree that they are justifiable assumptions, they cannot be observed and are not a proper object of scientific study. Later psychology was defined as the science of consciousness or conscious experience, but nobody has been able to say what makes us conscious of things and people around us, and in any case there are a number of things an individual does without being aware of them. Many people bite their
nails or move their heads and are surprised when their attention is drawn to these acts. They perform them unconsciously. Besides anybody’s experience is his own private and personal world into which others cannot enter. It is known directly only to him who has that experience. But a person’s behaviour is open to everybody to observe, it can be directly studied and it is better to confine the study of psychology to behavior alone, to those activities of the individual which case be observed, compared and analysed by all. It is a systematic study of all that man does in response to his world of things and person.
A. Find the words form the text that mean the following: [4x0.5=2]
a. the sprit
b. based on observe facts
c. suppositions
d. restrict

B. Answer the following questions: [4x2=8]
a. What is the main aim of psychology ?
b. Why isn’t the past definition of psychology satisfactory ?
c. Why should psychology be limited to the study of a person’s behaviour ?
d. What, according to the passage, is a more satisfying definition of psychology?
