Q.No.1. Read the following passage and answer the questions given at the end:

Men pass from birth to death, sometimes happy; sometimes unhappy; sometimes generous, something grasping and petty; sometimes heroic, sometimes cowardly and servile. To the man who views the procession as a whole, certain things stand out as worthy of admiration. Some men have been inspired by the love of mankind; some by supreme intellect has helped us to understand the world in which we live, and some by exceptional sensitiveness has created beauty. Thus, men have done what lay in their power to make human life a better thing than the brief turbulence of savages. The civilized man, where he cannot admire, will aim rather at understanding than at reprobating. He will seek rather discover and remove the impersonal causes of evil than to hate the men who are in its grip.
