5. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

RAHUL GANDHI

Part of the fifth generation of India's most reverend, influential and charismatic political family, Rahul Gandhi is also, like sister Priyanka, natural at public life.

The low-profile Rahul surprised the nation with his energy, humility and charisma when he plunged into electoral politics, winning from Amethi on a Congress ticket. Sceptics wondered whether this young man who'd spent most of his life in the US and Britain, would be able to adjust to the rough-and-tumble of Indian political life. But not only did the young Rahul take to politics like the proverbial duck to water, he also exhibited impressive confidence and maturity. Today, he is very much part of the Congress party's new crop of bright young politicians.

Q5.1 Answer the following questions:
(a) To whom has Rahul been compared with?
(b) How did he surprise the nation?
(c) What kind of a person is Rahul?
(d) What did the skeptics wonder?

and He also has written answers …

Q5.1 Answer the following questions:
(a) To whom has Rahul been compared with?
Rahul Gandhi has been compared with his sister Priyanka, who is also a part of the fifth generation of India's most reverend (?!), influential and charismatic political family. It is claimed that Priyanka is a natural at public life and that Rahul Gandhi follows suit.

(b) How did he surprise the nation?
Apparently, Rahul was very low profile before he plunged into electoral politics. Then one day, he asked his mother with a lot of energy, humility and charisma for permission to contest in Amethi, which is a sure-shot win for congress (It's another matter how well the city's potholes have been taken care of) and to everyone's surprise (wink wink!) he won it! Let's celebrate!

(c) What kind of a person is Rahul?
Someone who stands tall on nepotism and dynastic politics and claims to be honest. (Dichotomy, anyone?)

Well coming back to the answer (I need full marks), Rahul was brought up in the US and Britain (where he dropped in and dropped out of universities). To be in Indian politics one has to be rough. Rahul was rough. And he jumped into the pond of politics and became a duck. (Not a sitting one, yet). He has also exhibited impressive confidence and maturity as in the video below.

(d) What did the skeptics wonder?
Skeptics wondered many things. They still wonder. No one listens to them. Sad story. The end.

(Fine, I don't want full marks!)
