[Free PDF] Article Writing MCQs | Q&A | CBSE Class 12 [TERM 1]


Recently in a video conference, CBSE has announced that they will be revising the question pattern for almost all subjects in the upcoming examinations. So, my dear students, I think it’s time for you to be comprehensively aware of the regulations by CBSE and get prepared. 

In the video conference, CBSE has declared that from now on 50% of the total questions will be in a multiple-choice based pattern. This regulation applies to all subjects. The board members also conveyed that questions will be framed in such a way that the paper will be more efficient to analyse the students’ overall comprehension skills rather than evaluating their memorization ability. 

The same applies to English Writing too. CBSE has specifically mentioned that questions based on the format of the English writings will no longer be asked. Rather the paper will focus more on evaluating the students’ overall understanding and comprehensive ability on the writing.

Based on this regulation released by CBSE, we decided to come up with sessions containing suggestive model MCQs related to different English comprehension writings. We have already come up with sessions on model questions related to Letter Writing MCQs, Classified Advertisement Writing MCQs, as well as Notice Writing MCQs. All those sessions are still available on our website. You can check them out and download those sessions in PDF format for your further help in future

Today, I’m going to present to you a comprehensive session on model MCQs related specifically to article writing. Follow the session with the utmost attention and try to understand the question pattern suggested by CBSE and their questioning mentality.

The invention of mobile phones is one of the major advancements in human history. They have impacted the way people communicate with each other. They have created an easier platform for the spread of information from one person to another despite distances. The advantages of mobile phones are many. However, the mobile also has its disadvantages. Adolescents and teenagers are usually in a distracted state because of mobile phones. They are seen talking and texting at all places even while on the road while driving and even during classes. This can be detrimental as it may cause accidents and also prevent them from reaching their potential in academics. Anti-social elements are known to use mobiles for nefarious activities and terrorist acts. Research has also shown that overuse of mobile phones may cause harm to our bodies. Certain self-control measures over the use of mobiles will help us use them for our benefit and reduce their harmful effects.
