Q.2. Read the following paragraph and answer the questions given at the end: 3+3+3+3+3=15
It is usual to speak of courage as of two kinds: physical courage and moral courage. The distinction is quite sound; for a man can have one without the other. By physical courage, we mean the courage to face physical danger such as pain, injury, death, etc. By moral courage, we imply courage to face ridicule, hatred, and public disapproval for the sake of what we believe to be right. A soldier, who can face shells and guns, may be unable to face the mockery of his companions. He is physically brave, but a moral coward. On the other hand, those who dare to defy public opinion for conscience’s sake cannot face bodily torture. They are morally brave, but physically cowards. Moral courage is a test of character. Danger and physical risks test our nerves and strengths only but it requires an exceptional man to overcome temptations and stay honest when his children are starving. True manliness is of the mind, not of the body. The body suffers for a time and forgets all about it. But the torture and pain of the mind may continue for years. The man. who suffers patiently without complaining because he thinks he is in the right is truly brave.
