Directions (Q. 11-20): Read the following passage carefully and choose the most suitable answer to each question:

When I came home from the hostel for the first time, I was looking quite pulled down and pale. There I had lost interest in food and this naturally showed in my lackluster face and sunken eyes. I must have looked like a rogue when I stepped out of the Tonga, for, my father, from the terrace, showered me with his patent set of four-letter words, “You buffoon”, “good-for-nothing fellow”, etc. He was an officer, yet his stock of four-letter words was rather limited and so he welcomed me with a softer set of words and did not care to see me again. But after the vacation when I set off for the hostel, there was a servant walking with me with a huge tin of home-made ghee and a large sack of super-fine rice. He cooked my food separately in the hostel. By and by I grew pink and hefty. I generally survived on rice and slept a lot. I am fond of sleep till date. Once I slept for thirty-six hours at a stretch. Having a short nap after the breakfast is my hobby almost. For that I have been missing my lunch too. At night also it is extremely painful for me to keep awake after dinner. Evening have always appeared ominous to me; so this part of the day I spent either in making preparations for supper or in going for a film show. My interest in films has been of a classical kind, in items like who has produced the film, who all have acted in it, etc. Almost the same amount of time as I spent in viewing a film did I spent in procuring information about these. Raising a debate and making an issue of a non-issue is my favourite pastime.
