Paraphrasing Read the following passage and answer questions 71 to 75: Dr. Johnson described sleep as a ‘gentle tyrant’. ‘Sleep’ is a tyrant because nobody can escape its regimen; ‘gentle’ because there is some flexibility …of course, within limits … in the distribution of the hours of sleeping and being awake. We go to sleep way 15 to 16 hours; and sleep for about 8 hours in a 24 hours cycle. The outer limit for keeping sleep at bay for the average individual is 72 hours. An average individual cannot keep continuously awake for more than 72 hours. Of course, there have been exceptional individuals like the tyrant Napoleon and Arjuna. ‘Sleep’ and ‘Education’ are intimate enemies. Most often they go together but they always work against each other. Often students lose sleep thanks to fear of failing in the examinations. However, when they sit down to study sleep overpower them. Is it possible to develop and impart education about sleep ? Has anybody successfully done it ? What should be the aims of education vis-à-vis sleep? What are the best agencies for imparting education about sleep? What should be a curriculum for sleep education be like?
