1 . Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

Sultan Nasiruddin was a wise and $just$ ruler. Everybody sang his praises. He was kind to the poor. He used to distribute money to the poor and the needy. His treasury was full of wealth. In spite of having so much wealth, he did not spend anything on himself. He earned his living by copying the holy book of the Muslims, the Koran. Though a king, he felt that he must earn his own livelihood. He led a simple life. His wife was forced to do all the household chores. She had to cook her food, sweep the floor, make clothes and do many other household duties. At night, she complained of $severe$ pain in her body. She $muttered$ to herself, 'My life is so miserable. I am tired of working from morning to evening.'

One day, while cooking food, she burnt her fingers. She started weeping. On seeing her weeping, Sultan Nasiruddin asked her, 'Begum, what is the matter?' The queen started grumbling, 'See I have burnt my fingers. In spite of my being a queen, I have to work like other poor women. Why don't you employ some maid-servants?' Sultan Nasiruddin replied,'No Begum, I earn my livelihood by copying the Koran. My income does not permit me to spend $lavishly$.' The queen was annoyed. She said, 'Sultan, for whom is this treasury full? As a king you must spend on yourself and your family.'

Sultan Nasiruddin disagreed. He replied, 'Begum, you are mistaken. I cannot touch the treasury. It is people's wealth. I am answerable to God. I must earn my livelihood.' The Begum was $quiet$. She was convinced by the Sultan's argument and accepted it willingly.
