English is one of the most easy subject to deal with as per the exam point of view as per exam preparation point of view but at the same time it required little attention for gaining excellent marks in the Board Exams. As a graduate, I have tried to prepare following sample paper that contains Grammar Section and Literature Section. Both the sections cover all important topics that come in the exams. While preparing this paper all the grammar questions are taken from the previous year board paper and some help have been taken from few standard Grammar books. The questions are entirely based on the syllabus of English Class IX Karnataka Board Class X. To enhance your practice in a more better way you can also take help from Class 9 Chemistry Formulae.
