1. In the fourth century, when the arts were declining, the Roman style of architecture became debased, and the predominant features consisted of massive square plers or columns, without entablatures, from the imposts of which sprung arches of a semicircular form. It was in rude imitation of this style that the Saxon churches were constructed. The Roman basilicas, halls of justice some of which were subsequently converted into churches, furnished the plan for internal arrangement of churches of a large size, divided in the interior by rows or columns. From this division the nave and aisles of a church were derived. The Anglo- Saxon churches as far as can be ascertained were of no great dimensions and almost entirely devoid of ornamental moldings. Many of the earlier writers on this subject have, however, caused much confusion by applying the term ‘SAXON’ to all churches and other edifices contradistinction from the pointed style by semicircular headed doorways, windows and arches. But the vestiges of Anglo-saxon architecture have been as yet so little studied, In what their pecularities consist. The style may, however, be said to have approximated in appearance much nearer to the Debassed Roman style of masonry than the Norman, and to have been also much ruder. In the most ancient churches, we find arches constructed in Roman fashion.

Question: In which of the following respects does the architectural style of some of the Anglo-Saxon churches imitate the late Roman style?

a. Little ornamentation

b. Square piers

c. Large size

d. Arches of a semi-circular form

e. Pointed domes


2. Technically sound software for communication can be essential for saving time but critically analyzing it can never take over the supremacy that fact to face conversation enjoys. Studies have confirmed that communication has less to do with what one says than with the way it is expressed. The gestures and facial expressions involved mean much more than the content. An experiment performed on babies proved this point. A group of four month old babies were shown faces on a screen. Sometimes, the faces developed an eye contact with babies and sometimes they averted their stare. Slowly an observation was made that babies who had no verbal communication responded to facial non-verbal communication also. So we can well understand how important is a healing touch or a loving gesture of face to face conversation. The only ones who have benefited from these text communications are those who are shy. Some people have face anxiety and are at a loss of words at times of face to face communication. For them this type of distant chatting is quite helpful.
