Read the following passage and answer the questions below by selecting the correct option from the given five options.

The most fundamental right of one and all on the planet earth is freedom. It is one of the things that all the living beings look for from their first breath till the end of their lives. It is better to prefer death than to live in slavery. But, political freedom is not the only thing that one needs. Apart from the political freedom there are a lot of areas where the evil of slavery still exist. These factors include the issues such as slavery, blind faith, untouchability, poverty, dependence on false beliefs are some of the major issues of which the complete human population is a slave. It is very much necessary to achieve freedom from all such issues as soon as possible before it is too late.

It is the responsibility of each and every individual to throw all such evils out of the human society and make the world a better place to live in for each and every one of us. These issues are very general in the rural areas. More number of girl child's are facing very worse consequences in life because of all these factors. In most of the parts of the world the ratio between the total number of girls and boys is so unbelievable that you will find it very impossible to believe the result. For example, the girl is to boy ratio in some rural parts is around 1:10. This means that there is only one girl with respect to a count of 10 boys. This is very shameful for all of us. So instead of sitting and letting this situation continue, let us all come together to uproot this problem from our human society.

Another major issue of which we are slaves is poverty. Because of the increasing rate of corruption all over the world, it is becoming very difficult for one and all of the common man to fulfill even the basic need of him and his family namely food, clothing and shelter. This has further given rise to many other unsocial activities such as theft, robberies and many more. Instead of choosing the right path of life, people prefer to go on the unethical path to earn their living and fulfill all their needs.

With the aim of earning fast money instead of trying to earn hard money, more and more numbers of people are choosing the wrong path of life which is the path of falsehood and selfishness. Majority of this population includes youngsters which can prove to be very dangerous for the society with time if they are not treated as soon as possible.

Poverty is another big thing that is spreading like fire in the society the problem of slavery. The rich are becoming richer and the poor are becoming poorer with the passage of time. Corruption is the major reason for this economical imbalance in the society. Hence, in order to get rid of poverty and therefore slavery, we all should strive to eradicate corruption completely from the society.
