Question: Do you think Sophie is overambitious and Jansie is more practical? Discuss. [CBSE Sample Paper 2015]

Answer: Sophie and Jansie are class-fellows and friends. They belong to lower-middle-class families. Jansie understands her limitations well. She knows that both of them are earmarked for the biscuit factory. But Sophie is totally blind to the harsh realities of life. She dreams of big and beautiful things. She wants to have a boutique. She also entertains the idea of becoming an actress. She loves to be nice, grand and sophisticated. All her dreams are beyond her reach and resources. Though Jansie advises her, Sophie refuses to be sensible. She is nothing more than a romantic dreamer and is in awe of the footballer Danny Casey loves to live. Sophie and Jansie are poles apart in their thinking and temperament. Sophie is all lost to herself and her dreamy world. Sophie is an incurable escapist. She adores the young Irish footballer Danny Casey. She remains what she always is —a dreamer.
