1 . Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

As soon as he arrived in the $vicinity$ of the tea shop, the youngsters sitting in the shop would bestir themselves in the expectation of the ensuing fun and teasing remarks which would hover in the air. Ghulamu Chacha would $flare \,\,\,up$. He would call someone to hell; he would send someone's father to the funeral pyre and someone else's mother to no one knew where. $Gradually$, the intensity of the shock $faded\,\,\, away$ and Chacha got inured to the jest. When people teased him, he would abuse them and move on. By now he had become quite old. He walked with a $stoop$ and all his front teeth had come off. His patients never paid up, which led to the stopping of his medical practice and the pension papers could not be made ready yet. The household articles got older and older still. Chacha's life had no other charm except the teasing of the people in ever-inventive ways and his equally forceful and lively $riposte$. It had become almost a routine affair. As soon as he came on the road, his black coat and dirty pyjama on, vainly trying to straighten his bent waist, the youngsters of the 'mohalla' busy in their household chores would immediately guess that Chacha had set out on his daily $odyssey$ on the road

A.  He got used to them B.    He lost his peace of mind.
C.  His medical practice suffered D.    His pension papers were not ready yet
E.    None of these
