IGNOU B.Ed. Entrance Exam Previous Year Question Paper 2018 With Answer Key

IGNOU B.Ed. 2018 Question Paper

Directions (Q. Nos. 1-10): Read the following  passage carefully and choose the best answer out  of the four choices given after each question that  follows.  Among the most important themes in the Disney  movie ‘The Little Mermaid’ are those of questioning  conventional thinking and pursuing a dream. Not  only is Ariel the little me maid, demonstrating  original thought (something that many seem to think  she is lacking) but she is rebelling against her  speciesist father. When Ariel expresses her love for  the human prince, King Trident is furious. When  Ariel points out angrily that he does not understand  her, or even know the man whom she loves, Trident  retorts “know him? I don’t need to know him! He’s  a human!” In a very real way, Disney is encouraging  children to question preconceived ideas that we may  have against a certain group.  Disney also teaches children to pursue what  they love. We see that Ariel’s love for Prince Eric  is more important than all else. In turning to the sea  witch, Ursula, for help, Ariel makes a mistake but  no true hero or heroine is flawless. Ariel puts herself,  her family and all merfolk in danger, but we see  that with the help of her prince, she is able to put  everything to right.  At the end of the film, when Ursula has forced  King Trident to sacrifice his kingdom for his  daughter’s soul, the sea witch uses out of the water,  gigantic and terrifying, wearing the king’s crown  and holding his magic trident. She laughs evilly  and declares that she is the ruler of all mermen and  women. “So much for true love!” She screams victoriously. Eric, however, succeeds in piloting the  prow of his ship straight through her Belly,  vanquishing her. The moral here is that while we  all make mistakes, what is truly important is how  we right the wrongs we may do to others.
