Directions (Q. Nos. 182-186) Read the following passage and answer the questions given after it.

Twenty five years ago, while travelling and teaching in Turkey, Nepal and Iran., Bonnie Bergin noticed self-sufficient disabled people going about their unremarkable daily business, often using donkeys to hold pots, pans and other wares to be sold. She later returned to the United States to begin work on a master’s degree in special education. “I thought hard about what can be done to get people out of institutions and onto the streets, getting jobs and it came to me : dogs, says Bergin, who today has a doctorate in education and is the funder of the Assistance Dog Institute and originator of the service dog concept.

She ran into fierce resistance from academics and professionals at first : Dogs spread disease. Dogs are stupid. The disabled can’t take care of dogs, how could dogs take care of them? But the long list of negative reactions didn’t stop her. Her first trainee was Abdul, a golden retriever puppy someone had given her.

Her first dog assistance client was Kerry Knaus, a soft-spoken 19-year-old woman who had a neuromuscular disorder that had left her  unable to move her legs and much of her arms. If Knaus accidentally fell forward in her wheelchair, she could not get  up. She clearly lacked the physical force to train and maintain a dog.

But Bergin was undeterred. Bergin and Knaus concentrated no on physical gestures, but on verbal cues such as ‘sit’ or ‘stay’, using variations in tone of voice and facial expression to get Abdul to help Knaus. By the end of his training, the dog could push Knaus up from her in-chair falls, open doors, turn on lights, retrieve food and push levers to help her operate the chair lift to her van. Most important, Knaus developed a trusting emotional bond with Abdul simply by spending time with him, much in the way humans get to know one another and develop subtle, complex relationships based on mutual understanding.

Today, more that 150 programs provide similar services and an estimated 3500 service dogs are in place worldwide. Waiting lists for the dogs, who are worth around \$ 10000 by the end of training, can be long …….. sometimes five years …… because of the extensive breeding, training and bonding required.

182. What inspired Bonnie Bergin to help disabled people become self-sufficient?

(a)   Her observation of disabled people who managed everyday chores using donkeys.

(b)   Her Master’s degrees in Special Education.

(c)   Her training in handling dogs and teaching them to help people.

(d)   Her travels and teaching in foreign countries as part of her daily work.

183. The academics and professionals tried to dissuade Bonnie from using dogs to help the disabled basically because they

(a)   were convinced that dogs could not help the disabled.

(b)   thought dogs were stupid animals.

(c)   believed that dogs spread diseases.

(d)   knew that the disabled couldn’t take care of dogs.

184. Which of the following approaches did Bonnie and Knaus not adopt to train Abdul to help Knaus?

(a)   Variation in facial expressions

(b)   Verbal cues like ‘sit’ or ‘stay’

(c)   Physical gestures to direct the dog

(d)   Variations in tones of voice

185. At the end of the training, which of the following was the most important help that Abdul could provide to Knaus?

(a)   He could open doors and turn on lights

(b)   He could retrieve food

(c)   He could push Knaus up from her in-chair falls

(d)   He could help her operate the chair lift to her van

186. Which statement is not true according to the passage?

(a)   Today, more than 150 programs provide similar services of trained dogs to disabled people.

(b)   Today about 3500 service dogs are in place worldwide for helping the disabled.
