Q. 6. Let’s learn some grammar:

(a) In the story you came across the words happy, angry and beaufiful. Each of these words tells us something about the related noun e.g. a beautiful child. Here the word beautiful describes the quality of the child. Such words that describe the quality of something or some one are called adjectives.

Note that adjeetives have three degrees of comparison positive, comparative and superlative.

(i) Positive degree : Tomorrow cach of us will bring a child whom we find beautiful. In this sentence the adjective describes the quality of one person. 

(ii) Comparative degree : There is no child more beautiful than my grandson. In this sentence, the adjective is used to compare one child with another.

(iii) Superlative degree : I have found a child who is the most beautiful child in the entire village.

     The adjective in this sentence compares one child with all other children. We can arrange adjectives in their degrees as shown in the columns below. 

Positive degreeComparative degreeSuperlative degree 
1. BeautifulMore beautifulMost beautiful happiest
2. Happy HappierHappiest

     When the adjective has more than two syllables (i.c when the word is longer) we use more + adjective in the comparative and most+adjective in the superlative degrees.

     When the adjective is a short word we add er in the comparative and est in the superlative degree.

    Note that when the adjecive ends in ‘y’ we change it into ‘i’ before adding ‘er’. There are a very small number of adjectives outside this rule.

(b) Let’s practise using adjectives of degree and see how much you remember.

Fill in the columns below with the correct forms of the adjective.

PositiveComparativeSuperlative
1.Ugly…………….…………….
2. …………………….angriest
3. ……..dirtier…………….
4.big…………….…………….

Ans :

PositiveComparativeSuperlative
1.UglyUglierUgliest
2. AngryAngrierAngriest
3. DirtyDirtierDirtiest
4. BigBiggerBiggest

(c) Now in your note book, make three sentences using an adjective from each of the three columns.

Ans : angry : Akbar became (grew) angry at Birbal.

  uglier : Akbar had never seen a child uglier than that child.

  biggest : Guwahati is the biggest town in Assam.

Q. 7. Let’s come back to clauses. You have learned that a clause is a group of words that contains a verb that shows tense. The verb which shows tense is called a finite verb.

(a) Look at the following sentences :

(i) The child’s mother overheard Akbar.

(ii) Akbar beccame angry when he heard this.

     Notice that the whole sentence in (i) has been underlined as a group of words whereas sentence (i) has been under- lined as two groups of words. The underlined parts are called Clauses.

(b) Read the following sentences. Identify the subject and the finite verb in cach clause in the sentences. Write ‘S’ under the subject and ‘F’ under the finite verb.

(i) He plays cricket for the school team.

(ii) Rita will not come to day because she has gone to town.

(iii) She took the umbrella as it was raining.

(iv) I forgot to bring my book.

(v) Ron was reading a novel when I came to his house.

Ans : (i) He   plays cricket for the school team.

S F

(ii) Rita  will not come to day because  she  has  gone to town.

SFSF

(iii) She   took the umbrella as it   was raining.

SFSF

(iv) I   forgot to bring my book.

      S      F

(v) Ron    was reading a novel when I came to his house.

      S                F

     The predicate contains the finite verb which may be followed by phrases. But it may not be so always. Some times the predicate may just be a one-word verb. For ex- ample. :

     The child cried.

In this sentence, ‘The child’ is the subject. The predicate contains only the finite verb ‘cried’. Here the sentence is made up of one clause.

 A clause may be a sentence of a part of sentence. Now, look at the sentence (i) and sentence (ii) again.

(i) The child’s mother overheard Akbar.

(ii) Akbar became angry when he heard this.

     You might have noticed that sentence (i) is formed with one clause whereas sentence (ii) is formed with two clauses.

(c) Underline the clause in the following sentence.

(i) Whoever came to this house was chased by that dog.

(ii) After the man came, the boy closed the library door.

(iii) Swimming is my favourite summer time activity.

(iv) The bananas look ripe but they are not ready to be eaten.

(v) she ate an apple from the basket.

Ans : (i) Whoever came to this house was chased by that dog.

(ii) After the man came, the boy closed the library door.

(iii) Swimming is my favourite summer time activity.

(iv) The bananas look ripe but they are not ready to be eaten.

(v) She ate an apple from the basket.

Q. 8. Learning how to debate :

     Your teacher will divide the class into four groups and ask each group to read the following content that explains what a debate is and the rules of debate.

Ans : Do Your Self.

Q. 9. Write a short paragraph on what you understand from the following statement-‘ All children seem beautiful to their parents.’

Ans : It is a natural fact that every parents love their children. Even when others consider a child to be ugly, the perents get angry and consider their child to be beautiful. There are so disabled or specially able children. All these children are loved by their parents. They do never expect that some- many one should say their children not beautiful.

10. Read the conversation below. Some of the sentences are missing. Write to them and enact the conversation in the class.:

Akbar : Look, how beautiful my grandson is!

Minister : Yes, Huzur, there is no child more beautiful than your grandson.

Birbal : The young prince is very beautiful, but …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Akbar : Then, let’s find out tomorrow.
