QuestionPaper Analysis and Answer Key



This years' SSLC EnglishExamination was not at all an easy walkover for most of the students.For the English medium students, it was OK. But for the commonmajority and the students from the rural schools it was the oppositecase. Many questions puzzled them. Unfamiliar question types like“Report of a Debate” and “Describing a Night” were examples.The wordings and style of most questions were complicated and beyondthe comprehension of the students. There was a 'technical' error ofmisplacing hints and even a more serious error like spelling mistake(see Q.20 hints)!



At the same time some studentsand teachers feel that it was a “standard” question paper withinnovative changes. They believe that it was a remarkable deviationfrom the traditional pattern and that it catered to the creativeskills of the students



Questions 1-6

  1. “To James Mortimer, M.R.C.S., from his friends of the C.C.H” (and the date “1884”)
  2. Sherlock Holmes had a well-polished, silver plated coffee pot in front of him and it reflected everything behind him.
  3. “ I believe you have eyes in the back of your head”
  4. They missed the visitor and had no idea of the purpose of his visit. Now they got the visitor's walking stick which might give them some hints about him. So the stick gained importance.
  5. The task assigned to Watson was to reconstruct the visitor by examination of the stick.

(this question was a little embarrassing to many students. It could be in simpler words)
