Two men were once walking along a forest path, talking of courage and loyalty. The bigger one, who had a gun, was boasting of his own bravery and fidelity, when suddenly a large bear came from behind a rock close in front of them, and stood in their way growling angrily. The boaster fled to the nearest tree, dropped his gun, and climbed to a safe place without thinking of his poor friend. The latter flung himself upon his face as though dead. The bear smelt his body, turned him over, licked his face, and supposing him to be dead, went on its way leaving him unhurt.
The other man came down from the tree, and going to his friend said “Well, what secrets did he whisper so quietly in your ear?”. To which the little man, who owed his life to his own presence of mind and not to the boasted bravery and fidelity of his companion, replied, “why, he said, ‘put not your trust in braggarts,’ and I shall take his advice.”

Q15. Every inch a gentleman
Sol. “This material is not enough for me.” Other options are absurd since double comparative and wrong adverb is used.
Sol. “This is a change from my usual work.” Preposition ‘from’ is correct. which shows separation.
Sol. “Maharana Pratap killed many enemy soldiers with his sword.” for instruments we use preposition ‘with’ not ‘by’.
Sol. Everyone hoped for good weather on the day of the wedding. ‘hope for’ is correct phrasal verb.
Sol. He asked the child to go and play with some other. here ‘other’ is used as indefinite pronoun which shows another child.
Sol. It is mentioned in the first two lines of the passage that the two men were talking about “courage and loyalty” while walking along the forest path.
Sol. fidelity-faithfulness to a person, cause, or belief, demonstrated by continuing loyalty and support.
Sol. After seeing the bear, the boaster fled and climbed up the nearest tree.
Sol. The bear examined the person lying on the ground and the bear thought the man was dead.
Sol. The little man was saved by his presence of mind.
Sol. VENIAL-(of a fault or offence) slight and pardonable.
Sol. DIFFIDENT-modest or shy because of a lack of self-confidence.
Sol. Monologue-a long speech by one actor in a play or film, or as part of a theatrical or broadcast programme. ‘Monologue’ is correct spelling.
Sol. make light of something-to treat something as if it were unimportant or humorous.
Sol. every inch a something-completely; in every way. (Usually strengthening a following adjective.)
