Directions (Q. Nos. 19-30) Read the following passage and answer the given questions. Certain words/phrase are given in bold to help you locate them whole answering some of the questions.

There was once a king who died leaving four sons. The other three prices were extremely jealous of the youngest and conspired against him making him leave the palace. The queen went along with him( her beloved son). Now one day they were by the river when they spotted an abandoned boat. The young prince saw it and immediately began to plan a voyage. His mother pleaded. But the young prince was determined to seek his fortune with or without her. So at last time queen got into the boat. They set sail and journeyed for days till the river met the sea. They journeyed on and on till land was no longer visible and came upon a whirlpool. Strange red rocks were floating and disappearing from sight. As their boat drew alongside one such rock they could see it was ruby.

The prince cast a net and drew in a dozen large rubies. As he drew them on board, his mother said, “Perhaps they belong to someone who was shipwrecked and we’ll be taken as thieves”. So the prince threw them overboard, keeping just one which he hid among his clothes from his mother. They sailed on and at last came to a port. When they came ashore they realized it was the capital of a great king. They took some cheap rooms on the city outskirts. Now the prince was still young and longed for company of his age after working for a local merchant all day.

One day he came some youth of the town playing marbles and they Invited him to join them. But he couldn’t join in their game as he had no marbles of  his own. On the spur of the movement he used the red ruby. Now it so happened that the princess was passing by and seeing the brilliant ‘marble’ was enchanted. When she reached the palace she told her father that she had never seen such a marble and would like to possess it. The king ordered that the boy and the marble brought to the palace. ‘When the king saw the brilliant stone he realized it was a so rare a gem that he would be the envy of all.

He asked the boy how he had come upon it. The boy said that he had got it from the sea. The king offered a thousand rupees for the marble and the boy not realizing its true value readily parted with it. He took the money to his mother who was a little frightened, wondering if he h ad stolen it for they had nothing of such value to sell. On learning where he had got the money she calmed down. Now at the palace the princess happily put the ruby in her hair but her parrot said, “What princess puts just one ruby in her hair?” The princess went to her father in tears, “Where was he to get another ruby?” But she was adamant.

The king sent for the boy: He was unable to describe exactly where he had found the ruby but volunteered to go in search of more. The king offered the boy a handsome reward for he loved his daughter. The boy went his home and told his mother that he had to set off. She was frightened but nothing could deter him. He set off and finally after many days and getting out several times h e came upon the whirlpool.

This time through he wanted to discover the source of the rubies. He dived into the gap in the middle of the whirlpool and reached a beautiful palace. There he saw a young girl imprisoned and as her tears fell on the beautiful red corral these were transformed into rubies. Seeing the plight of the girl he was moved and picked up one of the golden rods lying outside her prison to break the lock when the rod floated from his hand and touched the bars which melted away.

The girl was astonished to see the boy and the two quickly ran from the palace before, he witch who had imprisoned her there realized. The two made off with some of the rubies and returned to the king who rewarded them. They were married and lived happily ever after and the whirlpool was never found again.
