Day Based Puzzle Practice Questions for CLAT

Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions.

Passage-I

There were of course utilitarian goods at the fair, but even as such they were not goods of work-a-day use. If there were​​ clothes they were mostly of silk. If there were caps, they were of embroidered velvet or fine muslin. There were chairs, tables and cupboards. The fair was the purveyor of luxuries for us, luxurious by virtue of being superfluous to the living of the daily life, and next, things which were luxuries only because they were unobtainable throughout the rest of the year. We literally craved for both, and fortunately got them cheap at the fair. We​​ made no distinction, till the nationalist movement came, between the goods made in the factories of Great Britain and​​ those made by our handicraftsmen. We still judge goods neither by their provenance nor their method of production, but their usefulness to us - the buyers. We paid equal attention to handmade and machine made goods but personally speaking, I rather neglected one row of handicrafts which I would like to see again. It was the row of our native cabinet makers who made the chests of which I have spoken in the rich golden timber of the jack fruit tree.
