A1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:                                                      (8 marks) 1.  It is hard to think of an Indian snack that is not fried.  However, we need to be aware of what happens to oil when it is heated.  When oil begins to smoke, it is a good indication that it has been heated too much.  At this temperature, chemical changes begin to take place, which have many health risks.  Of course, this is tricky.  If the oil is not hot enough, then more of it is absorbed, and the resultant product is quite soggy and unfit to eat.

2. Further, prolonged heating of oil at high temperature, i.e., at its smoking point or higher, leads to its degradation.  A substance called acrolein is formed which can irritate the stomach lining.  Oil that has decomposed to acrolein will be dark and viscous. Normally, this does not happen when food is fried at home.  But as oil is expensive we are not willing to put it down the drain after having used it only once. The common tendency is to set aside any oil that is left over to use another time. And repeated use of the same oil guarantees the formation of acrolein with all its undesirable effects.
