SECTION – A (Reading Comprehension)
Q. (1-7) Read the following passage.
Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and legs-but he doesn’t let the details stop him. The brave 26-year-old_who is mainly a torso _plays football and golf, swims and surfs, despite having no limbs.
Nick has a small foot on his left hip which helps him balance and enables him to kick. He uses his one foot to type, write with a pen and pick things up between his toes.
‘I call it my chicken drumstick’, joked Nick, who was born in Melbourne, Australia, but now lives in Los Angeles.  I’d be lost without it.
Due to his faith as an Evangelical Christian, Nick has chosen to remain a virgin until marriage.
‘He’s very modest but he gets marriage proposals from women all the time,; said Nick’s friend and publicist Steve Appel, from Los Angeles.
‘He would love to get married and start a family but he’s waiting for the right girl to come along.’
Water sports aren’t Nick’s only thing – he also plays golf with a club tucked under his chin, and is a huge fan of the English Premier League.
His parents decided not to send him to a special school – a decision he said was very hard for him, but which may have been the best decision they could have made for him.
When Nick was born his father was so shocked that he left the hospital room to vomit. His distraught mother couldn’t bring herself to hold him until he was four months old.
His disability came without any medical explanation – a rare occurrence called Phocomelia – and Nick and his parents spent many years asking why this cruel trick would happen to them. ‘My mother was a nurse and she did everything right during pregnancy but she still blamed herself,’ he said.
