Part I Question 1

Write on the adage which says "silence is (a source) of peace ".


This was the least attempted of all the four questions by the candidates. Candidates were
expected to write about 120 words including definition of the word silence/introduction, in the
body of their essay writing, mention was expected to be made of at least five points on the
importance and significance of silence in relation to peace and peaceful co-existence among
people, bringing relevant Quranic and Apostolic references with wise sayings. In all, some of
\the candidates who chose the question did justice to it while a few of them could not adequately
thrash the question.
