Q.I.(A) Read the following extract and answer the questions given below : (11)

As Deoli plat-form receded, I decided that one day I would have to break journey there, spend a day in the town, make inquiries and find the girl who had stolen my heart with nothing but a look from her dark eyes.

With this thought I consoled myself throughout my last term in college. I went to Dehra again in summer and when, in the early hours of the morning, the night train drew into Deoli station, I looked up and down the platform for signs of the girl, knowing I wouldn’t find her but hoping just the same.

Somehow I couldn’t bring myself to break journey at Deoli.   I think I was afraid to do this   I was afraid of discovering what really happened to the girl.   Perhaps she was no longer in Deoli, perhaps she was married, perhaps she had fallen ill.
