Verbal Section : Reading Comprehension

Read the following comprehension and answer the following question.

  1. It is to growth in the human sciences that we should look to open the tribulations which have resulted from facts of the material world hastily and apparently obtained by populations unaware of the changes in them that the new facts has made very important. The road to a more contented world than any known in the history lies open before us if atavistic unhelpful passion can be kept in restraint while the essential adaptation are made. Fears are predictable in our time, but hopes are similarly balanced and far more probable to bear fine fruit. We should study to believe rather less of the hazard to be avoided than of the superior that will lie inside our grasp if we can consider in it and let it control our feelings. Science, anything obnoxious cost it may have by the way, is in its very temperament a liberator, a liberator of repression to physical personality and in time to come, a liberator from the burden of unhelpful passion. We are on the doorsill of thorough tragedy or unprecedentedly magnificent attainment. No earlier age has been burdened with troubles so important, and it is to knowledge that we should look to for a content future.
