& Model Question papers
Note : The Text book for I year English in C-16 curriculum ( Common to all Engineering branches) is the same one that was used in C-14 Curriculum. However, it is proposed to modify the Unit Test and End exam Question papers slightly by giving due weightage to all the topics. A special emphasis is given to enrich vocabulary of the students by introducing a Long Answer question. Students are expected to learn as many words as they can from all the possible lessons and use them in their expressions.
While setting question papers:
·         It is highly desired that the questions should be clear, specific without any ambiguity and should not miss the focus from the objective.
·         There should be no repetition of the questions and should be adhered to the given weightage.
·          If the topic or objective is present in both Short and Long Answer questions as per weightage, see that the way of asking questions and sub topics are different.
·         The format of asking Short answer questions may be filling in the blanks, giving substitute, rewrite, convert, using expression related to a situation…etc. It could be a short note if it is based on writing skill.
·         Every question should have the instructions that are precise and clear.
·         The marks should be allotted to the right words/phrases/expressions for the Short Answer questions.
·         The marks for Long Answer questions may be allotted for content, relevant expressions, grammatical accuracy and skill of writing a Paragraph / Report/ Letter / Resume. ..etc
·         Try to frame the questions of different grades based on their difficulty level like easy, moderate, difficult. Frame suitable questions for Short/Long answer questions based on the scope, length, number of sub points of that answer.
·         Guide lines/A blue print is given for framing each Unit Test and End exam Question paper to maintain accuracy and uniformity.

Traffic signals should be seriously viewed. Offenders should not be spared. Pedestrians should be encouraged to use footpaths and zebra lines for crossing the roads. All these measures would help ease the traffic problem. Road safety would then be a reality.

                   Another kind of oil is mineral oil. This  oil that drives tanks, aero planes and warships, motorcars and diesel locomotives. This is the oil that has changed the life of the common man. This kind of oil comes out of the earth. It burns well and so  it is used as fuel. Many big ships now use oil instead of coal. Many homes are still illuminated with oil burning lamps.

We all speak and write, whether or not we are able to state rules governing the words we use. To be effective, we must achieve clarity of expression. We need to know how to present ideas forcefully without confusion or unnecessary words, by choosing language suited to our purpose. In order to use English correctly and gracefully, it is necessary to recognize and to practice using good grammar. Listening to speakers who are accustomed to speaking grammatically, helps to train the ear to correct usage.  Simple, idiomatic English is desirable for both writing and speaking, but it requires some effort from language users.

ii)  How should we present our ideas?
