“That you want us to call him Nikhil.” “That is correct.” Mrs. Lapidus nods. “The reason being?” “That is our wish.” “I’m not sure I follow you, Mr. Ganguli. Do you mean that Nikhil is a middle name? Or a nickname? Many of the children go by nicknames here. On this form there is a space—” “No, no, it’s not a middle name,” Ashoke says. He is beginning to lose patience. “He has no middle name. No nickname. The boy’s good name, his school name, is Nikhil.” Mrs. Lapidus presses her lips together and smiles. “But clearly he doesn’t respond.” “Please, Mrs. Lapidus,” Ashoke says. “It is very common for a child to be confused at first.

Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

Learning about civics gives you a foundation for forming educated opinions about


The correct option is “Learning to read Chinese”

Kublai Khan was the fifth and last great khan (1260-1294) of the Mongol Empire and the first Chinese emperor of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1294). The empire was separated, creating four khanates, each governed by a khan and supervised by the great khan. The Golden Horde ruled Russia; Ilkhanate ruled the Middle East, the Khanate of Chagatai ruled the center of Asia and the Great Khanate ruled Mongolia and the whole of China. The empire reached its maximum extension with the conquest of Kublai of the Song dynasty in 1279.

In 1271 Kublai officially created the Yuan Dynasty, and established the new capital at Dadu (present-day Beijing) the following year. To unify China, Kublai began a huge offensive against the last remnants of the Song dynasty in southern China, and ended his conquest of China in 1279. As emperor of China, Kublai worked to minimize the influences of the regional governors who had immense power before and during the Song dynasty. His distrust of the Han ethnic group caused him to appoint officers from other ethnic groups.
