SAMPLE PAPER AIR FORCE ENTER TECHNICAL GROUP ‘X’ EXAMINATION
SUBJECT – ENGLISH
Directions (1-4): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it in the context of the passage.
The war for Eelam was fought by the LTTE’s leadership at the behest of the displaced Tamil Diaspora spread across the U.S. and Europe. They had powerful lobbies judging from the fact many LTTE sympathizers had sought and got asylum in those countries to propagate the war. That included LTTE ideologue Anton Balasingam. That is now Norwegian interlocutors came in for third party mediation and succeeded remarkably in achieving a dramatic climb down on the part of Sri Lankan government. A ceasefire was called and implemented but the diaspora was against it. Even Col. Karuna, the defected LTTE leader, admitted that Parbhakaran was annoyed at the very idea of a federal devolution of powers even when Balasingam propounded it. It is this pressure group which made life miserable for millions of Sri Lankan Tamils.
