Question 80
Read the following passage and answer the questions given below:
An amateur rugby player, who was forced to eat the body parts of his dead teammates when the plane carrying his Old Christians club to Chile crashed in 1972, Gustavo Carlos Zerbino has motivated mercurial Uruguayan striker Luis Suarev to keep him from biting his opponents.
Gustavo Carlos Zerbino, was once Uruguay’s mental conditioning coach. He gave a motivational talk to Uruguay’s squad before its departure for Moscow. He spoke particularly to Suarez whose 2014 world cup had ended in ignominy after he was handed a four month ban for biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini during the team’s last group game.
“Those were moments of indiscretion by a very emotional player. The Suarez that we see now is in control of his emotions…...He is an excellent player and human being…… I told him to focus on how he plays and not what others do on the field. I told the players that to have extraordinary results you have to do extraordinary things. You have to want the cup, believe in it and do everything in your power to claim it,” Zerbino said.
The plane crash in October 1972 had left Zerbino and 25 others stranded in the Andes for 72 days at 15,000 ft with temperature as low as -35 degree centigrade with low oxygen and no water and no water or good. A second year medical student then, he convinced other to eat the dead bodies to survive. After two months three survivors were able to trek miles through the snow to raise help. Only 16 survived and the story told in the 1993 film ‘Alive’.
“If I could beat the most outrageous misfortune, the team could surely overcome the challenges that other teams throw at them and come out trumps,” Zerbino, who had worked with the national team for the last 12 years, told the Uruguayan squad.
Q) Choose the correct option.
Q)  Refer to second paragraph last two sentences. What lesson can we learn from Zerboni’s advice to the Uruguayan squad?
A
To be successful, we must know our goal and then work very hard to achieve it.
B
We have to achieve our goal by fair means or foul.
C
Every possible means can be used to keep our rivals out of our way.
D
There is no need to be scrupulous to achieve goal we have in mind.
