Read the following poem carefully:
FREEDOM TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT
Freedom is the right to do
Anything that pleases you,
As long as you keep in sight
That others also have a right.
Have you the right to kill a cat?
Oh no! It’s wrong, just consider that
The cat has the right to live like you
A right to eating and drinking too!
So remember that it’s certainly wrong
To deprive a nightingale its song,
To cheat the poor people, as rich men do
To rob the innocent, as robbers do.
To injure someone to win a race
To despise some and others embrace,
To disobey every order and rule
And drown a swimmer in the pool,
And shout and scream like a fool
Disrespecting the teachers in the school.
So never forget that although you are free,
You should think of others, not only ‘ME’.

(a)How are the rights of a cat similar to ours?

(d)Qualities one should undesired are?
(i)Rudeness and flouting of rules (ii) Dishonesty and falsehood
(iii)Arrogance and discrimination (iv) All of the above.
(e)The line that sums up the theme of the poem is-
(i)That others also have a right
