Q4: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end. 25 Marks

Honesty is the surest way to success. The day at last comes when the dishonest man repents in sorrow and suffering. But no man ever needs to repent of having been honest. Even when the honest man fails through lacking other qualities such as energy, economy, or system, his failure is not the grievous thing as it is to the dishonest man. He can always rejoice in the fact that he has never defrauded a fellow being. Even in his darkest hour, he finds response in a clear conscience. Ignorant men imagine that dishonesty is short-cut to prosperity. This is why they practise it. The dishonest man is morally short-sighted. He is like the drunkard who sees the immediate pleasure of his habit, but not the ultimate degradation. He sees the immediate effect of a dishonest act - a large profit - but not its ultimate outcome.

دنیا میں ایسے آدمی بہت کم ہوتے ہیں جن کے سامنے کوئی بُلند مقصد ہو اور وہ اس کی خاطر اپنی جان تک قربان کر دیں ۔ ایسے ہی آدمیوں سے قوموں کی تاریخ بنتی ہے۔ ٹیپو سلطان شہید کا شمار ایسے ہی انسانوں میں ہوتا ہے ۔ اور  وہ کہا کرتے تھے  کہ "شیر کی زندگی کا ایک دن  گیدڑ کی زندگی کے ایک سو سال سے بہتر ہے" یہ بات بلکل درست ہے انسان کے لئے یہی لازم ہے کہ شیر کی طرح زندگی بسر کرے اور اللہ کے سوا کسی سے نہ ڈرے اور ملک کے دُشمن کے سامنے چٹان کی طرح جم جائے۔
