Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
1. The gap between the old people and young boys and girls is called the generation gap. While the young people are inexperienced, rash and impatient, the elders endowed with wisdom, prudence and caution. This gap between the two generations is not a new phenomenon. It has existed since time immemorial.
2. The people belonging to the older generation always wonder as to what has gone wrong with the new generation. They feel that during their time, young boys and girls were better behaved, more obedient, and had greater respect for their elders. They feel that a lack of respect for the old will bring ruin and spell disaster for the young. Young people, on the other hand, feel that they are capable enough to learn on their own rather than lean heavily on the older generation for any guidance. Young people do not like to be spoon-fed by theirs elders.
3. The generation gap has widened to such an extent that the old and the people appear to be living in two separate worlds without any interaction. In order to bridge this generation gap, elders should adopt a more sympathetic approach towards the young, and try to understand the emotions, the aspirations and the problems of the young. The youth should realise that they have no experience of life. They should, therefore, value the advice and counsel of the elders. If the youth have any difference of opinion, they should put across their viewpoint before the elders in a very polite and respectful manner.
4. Although under the influence of the western education the problem of generation gap is also creating a lot of problems in India, yet its effect is still limited in our country due to the influence of the joint family system prevailing in India. There are definitely a lot of advantages in the joint family system. Therefore, we should not follow the western system blindly at the cost of the well-tried Indian social and family tradition.
5. But this does not mean that the youth are always at fault. The real meaning of 'Generation Gap' is the lack of understanding between old and new generations. It should be the duty of both generations to try to understand and respect one another's views. Only then this problem can be solved.
 
 
(a) According to the old people, what is the difference between young people of their generation and the new generation?
(b) What can elders bridge the generation gap?
(c) How should the youth behave in the presence of elders?
(d) What has limited the influence of western education to widen the generation gap?
(e) Find a word in para 1 which means the same as 'alertness'.
(f) Which word in para 3 means ‘ambition’?
(g) Find the antonym of the word 'unblessed' in para 1.
(h) Find the antonym of the word 'losing' in para 4.
