Qn. 1-10 are based on the passage given below. Read the passage carefully before answering the  questions. 
The expression ‘the bird’ appearing in the questions may be taken to mean the bird described in the passage)The size of the bird is that of a house crow about 32cm. It is a familiar slaty grey bird with glistening metallic green,purple and magenta sheen on neck and upper breast. There are two dark bars on wings, and a band across the end oftail.sexes are alike. In the field the bird is seen in focks and colonies, about cliffs and human habitations. Distribution is throughout the Indian Union locally upto 4,000 meters in the Himalayas; Bangladesh; Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. Resident, but also partial local migrant. Two races concern us, differentiated on size and colouration details. In its perfectly wild state the bird affects open country with cliffs and rocky hills. Mostly seen in semi-domesticated condition, living as a commensal of man and largely adulterated through inter breeding with fancy artificial strains. This semi feral stock has become thoroughly inured to the din and bustle of urban life and is now well established in most Indian towns. Grain warehouses, railway stations, and old or disused buildings are their favourite hunts. Wild birds occupy cliffs, and crumbling battlements of hill forts, etc., and glean in outlying cultivation. Food includes cereals, pulses etc. Nestingseason is undefined, practically all year in semi-feral birds. Nest is a flimsy collection of a few sticks on a ledge, in a fissure of cliff, on  ceilings of dwelling houses etc.
