7. Read the following passages and answer the questions given at the end:

Donating organs following the death can help save many lives and very appropriately, this act has been labelled the gift of life. Although the individual has died, he or she continues to live on in others by this act of donation. Every day there are more and more people with end-stage organ failure who can benefit from transplantation. Organ transplantation is a success story of modern medicine. Countless people have benefited from the kidney, liver, small intestine, pancreas, heart and lung transplantation. Better understanding Of the principles of organs harvesting, preservation, and subsequent implementation is helping us become better givers and receivers. The body is trained to reject any external organ it receives, but immunosuppressive medicines control it effectively.
Traditionally, organ donation has from brain dead donors. These were individuals who suffered irreversible damage to their brain, thereby losing not just their consciousness, but also control of brain stem functions such as respiration, temperature control and control of the cardiovascular system. If they were taken off the life-supporting ventilator, they would succumb to a cardiac arrest though their ECG tracing on the monitor appeared normal and patient just seemed to be in coma.
As there is oxygenated blood being circulated to all organs even in this condition, these organs are functioning right. If the family agrees, these organs can be harvested and used for transplantation. Since it is impossible to maintain good perfusion of organs artificially for a long time, the window for donation is usually less than 24—48 hours once the diagnosis of brain death. This is because cardiac arrest is inevitable in these patients and at such a time, the organ will become unsuitable for harvesting.
Most brain-dead patients are either victims of major road accidents or would have suffered from massive bleeding in the brain through other ways. Patients with tumours in the brain can also become brain dead and can potentially donate, provided their tumours have not spread outside the brain. Patients who have suffered major hypoxic brain damage as a result of severe asthma can also donate.


(i) How could organs be harvested from brain dead patients?
(ii) Why is the window for donation usually less than 24—48 hours?

There are of course no friends like living, breathing, corporeal men and women; my devotion to reading has never made me a recluse. How could it? Books are of the people, by the people, for the people. Literature is the immortal part of history; it is the best and most enduring part of personality. But book friends have this advantage over living friends; you can enjoy the most truly aristocratic society in the world whenever you want it. The great dead are beyond our physical reach, and the great living is usually almost as inaccessible; as for our personal friends and acquaintance, we cannot always see them. Perchance they are asleep or away on a journey. But in private library, you can at any moment converse with Socrates or Shakespeare or Carlyle or Dumas or Dickens or Shaw or Barrie or Galsworthy.
And there is no doubt that in these books you see these men at their best. They wrote for you. They "laid themselves out", they did their ultimate best to entertain you, to make a favourable impression. You are necessary to them as an audience is to an actor, only instead of seeing them marked, you look into their inmost heart of heart.

(ii) Why does the author say that he has not become a recluse in spite of spending most of his indoor life in the company of books?
(iii) What is the difference/similarity between the "great dead" and the "great living"?
(iv) "You are necessary to them as an audience is to an actor."
(a) Who is 'you' here and to whom does 'them' refer to?
(b) "The great dead are beyond our physical reach," list three such great dead mentioned in the passage.
(v) (A) perchance, they are asleep or away on a journey. Here 'they' refer to:
(a) Book friends

(b) Living friends
(c) Aristocrats
(d) Acquaintances
     (B) Give the noun form of 'entertain'.

8. Read the following poetic passage and answer the questions given at the end:

It shook out their hearts, the yellow leaves,
Scattered them over the ground.
Anyone could trample them out of shape
Undisturbed by a single moan of protest.

Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.
