GENERAL ENGLISH
Directions for Questions 41 to 50:
Read the following passage and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases in the passage have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions. Marc Rodin flickedoff      witch of his transistor radio and rose from the table, leaving the breakfast tray almost untouched. He walked over to the window, lit another in the endless chain of cigarettes and gazed out at the snowencrusted landscape  hich the late arriving spring had not yet started to dismantle. He murmured a word quietly and with great venom, following up with other strong nouns and epithets that expressed his feeling towards the French President, his Government and the Action Service. Rodin was unlike his predecessor in almost every way.
Tall and spare, with a cadaverous face hollowed by the hatred within, he usually masked his emotions with an unLatin frigidity. For him there had been no Ecole Polytechnic to open doors to promotion. The son of a cobbler, he had escaped to England by fishing boat in the halcyon days of his late teens when the Germans overran France, and had enlisted as a private soldier under the banner of the Cross of Lorraine.
Promotion through sergeant to warrant officer had come the hard way, in bloody battles across the face on North Africa under Koenig and later through the hedgerows  of Normandy with Leclerc. A field commission during the fight for Paris had got him the officer’s chevrons his education and breeding could never have obtained and in postwar France the choice had been between reverting to civillian life or staying in the Army.
But revert to what? He had no trade but that of cobber which his father had taught him, and he found the working class of his native country dominated by Communists, who had also taken over the Resistance and the Free  rench of the Interior. So he stayed in the Army, later to experience the bitterness of an officer from the ranks who saw a new young generation of educated boys graduating from the officer schools, earning the theoretical lessons carried out in classrooms the same chevrons he had sweated blood for. As he wanted them pass him in tank and privilege the bitterness started to set in. There was only one thing left to do, and that was join one of the colonial regiments, the tough crack soliders who did the flighting while the conscript army paraded round drill squares. He managed a transfer to the colonial paratroops. Within a year he had been a company commander in IndoChina, living among other men who spoke and throught as he did. For a young man from a cobbler’s bench, promotion could still be otained through combat, and more combat. By the  end of the IndoChina campaign he was a major and after an unhappy and frustrating year in France he was sent to Algeria. The French withdrawal from IndoChina dn the year he spent in France had turned his latent bitterness a consuming loathing of politicians and Communists, whom he regarded as one and the same thing. Not until Franco was ruled by a soldier could she ever be weaned away from the grip of the treators and lickspittles.  who permeated her public life. Only in the Army were both breeds extinct. Like most combat officers who had seen their men die and occasionally buried the hideously mutilated bodies of those unlucky enough to be taken  alive. Rodin worshipped soldiers as the true salt of the earth, the men who sacrificed themselves in blood so that the bourgeoisie could live at home in comfort. To learn from the civilians of native land after eight years of  combat in the forests of IndoChina  batt most of them Cared not a fig for the soldiery, to read the denunciations of the millitary by the leftwing intellectuals for more trifles like the to turing of prisoners to obtain vital information, had set off inside March Rodin a reaction  hi ch combined with the native bitterness stemming from his own lack of opportunity, had turned into zealotry. He remained convinced that given enough backing by the civil authorities on the spot and the Government and people back home, Army could have beaten the VietMinh. The cession of IndoChina had been a massive betrayal of the thousands of fine young men who had died there seemingly for nothing. For Rodin ther would be,  could be, no more betrayals. Algeria would prove it. He left the shore of Marseilles in the spring of 1956 as ner a happy man as he would ever be, convinced that the distant hills of Algeria would see the consummation of what  he regarded as his life’s work, the apotheosis of the French Army in the eyes of the world.
