Q.1-10. Read the following passages carefully and answer the given questions. 

Passage-1 

A recent report of the UN has named India among the worst countries for poor quality of water. The ranks 122 countries according to the quality of their water as well as their ability and commitment to improve the situation. Belgium is considered the worst basically because of the quality of its ground water. 

Rains failed in most parts of India in 2009-10 and the vast areas of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Orissa were in the grip of devastating drought. People without water turn desperate and violent Villagers in Rajasthan last year attacked the Food Corporation godowns. Worse may be coming. With main polluters refusing to control pollution (America, the world's greatest polluter, refuses to cooperate with other countries) the world is getting hotter. This means that the great ice shelves weighing billions of tons) of the Antarctic are collapsing. We cannot even conceptualize the dangerous consequences. Last century, sea levels in Venice rose by one step of a staircase. This century they are expected to rise by five steps. An additional cause for Venice's sinking is the draining of underground water table due to industrialization. The water tables in our cities have also been going lower and lower. When ocean level rises. Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean will be the first to go under the waves. Citizens of that country are already migrating to New Zealand.

Passage-2 

Most of us use the products of science-railways, aeroplanes, electricity, wireless and thousands of others without thinking how did they come into existence. We take them for granted, as if we were entitled to them as a matter of right. And we are very proud of the fact that we live in an advanced age and are ourselves so very advanced. Now there is no doubt that our age is a very different one from previous ages and I think it is perfectly correct to say that it is far more advanced. But that is a different thing from saying that we as individuals or groups are more advanced. It would be the height of absurdity to say that because an engine driver can run an engine and Plato or Socrates could not, the engine driver is more advanced than, or is superior to, Plato or Socrates. But it would be perfectly correct to say that the engine itself is a more advanced method of locomotion than Plato's chariot was.
