Q6-10 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

The Bengal Renaissance refers to a social reform movement during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in the region of Bengal in Undivided Indian during the period of British rule. The Bengal renaissance can be said to have started with Raja Ram Mohan Roy (177533) and ended with Rabindranath Tagore (186141), although there have been many stalwarts thereafter embodying particular aspects of the unique intellectual and creative output. Nineteenth century Bengal was a unique blend of religious and social reformers, scholars, literary giants, journalists, patriotic orators and scientists, all merging to form the image of a renaissance, and marked the transition from the ‘medieval’ to the ‘modern.

During this period, Bengal witnessed an intellectual awakening that is in some way similar to the European Renaissance during the 16th century, although Europeans of that age were not confronted with the challenge and influence of alien colonialism. This movement questioned existing orthodoxies, particularly with respect to women, marriage, the dowry system, the caste system and religion. One of the earliest social movements that emerged during this time was the Young Bengal movement, that espoused rationalism and atheism as the common denominators of civil conduct among upper caste educated Hindus.

The parallel socio-religious movement, the Brahmo Samaj, developed during this time period and counted many of the leaders of the Bengal Renaissance among its followers.

A. Europeans did not have the dowry system.

B. Raja Rammohan Roy and Tagore were not born in the 16th century.

C. The Bengal Renaissance was an essentially Hindu movement.

D. Unlike the Bengalis, Europeans were not under foreign rule.

Q7 The spirit of Renaissance:

A. is to embrace atheism

B. is to get inspiration from Western intellectual thought

C. lies in breaking all shackles of backwardness

D. is essentially scientific

Q8 The Bengal Renaissance movement:

A. wanted to overthrow colonialism

B. wanted to propagate Brahmoism

C. wanted social reform to improve the lot of the weak and the downtrodden

D. None of the above

Q9 The Bengal Renaissance gathered momentum in the 19th century because:

A. the British had colonised India

B. there was an abundance of intellectual and creative activities in Bengal then.
