Section C – Language

Read the following passage and answer the questions (Questions 76 to 80)

Midas, the king, was a greedy person. He loved gold more than anything in the world. He had lots of wealth but was never really a happy person.
One day God Bacchus came to Midas. Midas had once helped god Bacchus and in return Bacchus offered him a gift. “What shall I give you to make you happy”, God asked him. Midas thought for a while and then said, “Please give me the power to turn everything I touch into gold”. Bacchus laughed and said, “Your wish is granted. As soon as the Sun rises tomorrow, you will have a golden touch”.
The next morning Midas woke up, and he had his golden touch. He touched his bed, the chairs, doors, windows and all became gold.
Suddenly, he felt very hungry. He sat at the table but soon as the food touched his lips, it turned into gold. So did the water. It seemed he could no longer eat or drink. After sometime, his daughter came to him. When he put his hand on her, she became a gold statue. In the end, Midas became very sad and prayed God Bacchus to take away the golden touch from him.
