XAT 2017 Question 2

Question 2

Read the following excerpt and answer the question that follows:

Fragrant with steam
were the days and the nights red with many braziers
in the beloved house
of my father, my mother.

Which of the following options is the closest expression of the poet’s feeling?


"Brazier" is a portable heater consisting of a pan or stand for holding lighted coals. Option C, which fondly recalls the climate, is a better choice than option D. The verse is about the fond remembrance of the climatic atmosphere and not really about "missing the braziers and steam."
