 Directions (Questions 11-15) : Read the following passages to answer these questions.The greatest enemy of mankind, as people have discovered, is not science, but war.  Science merely reflects the prevailing social forces.  It is found that, when there is peace, science is constructive: when there is war, science is perverted to destructive ends.  The weapons which science gives us do not necessarily cause war; they make war increasingly terrible.  Till now, it has brought us to the doorstep of doom.  Our main problem, therefore, is not to curb science, but to stop war – to substitute law for force, and international government for anarchy in the relations of one nation with another.  That is a job in which everybody must participate, including the scientists.  But the bombing of Hiroshima suddenly woke us up to the fact that we have very little time.  The hour is late and our work has scarcely begun.  Now we are face to face with an urgent question- “Can education and tolerance, understanding and creative intelligence run fast enough to keep us abreast with our own mounting capacity to destroy?”  That is the question which we shall have to answer one way or the other in this generation.  Science must help us in arriving at the answer, but the main decision lies within ourselves.11.  According to the writer, the main problem we arefaced with is toA)  stop science from reflecting social forcesB)  stop scientific activities everywhere

C)  abolish war

D)  prevent scientists from participating in destructive


12.  The expression ‘bring to the doorstep of

doom’ means


A)  carry close to death and destruction

B)  lead to the threshold of a new destiny

C)  indulge in a ruinous activity

D)  introduce to an unpredictable destiny


13.  Which of the following is opposite in meaning to

the word ‘anarchy’ in the middle of the passage?



A)  Law and order

B)  Political dominance

C)  Economic prosperity

D)  Communal harmony


14.  Which of the following would be the most

suitable title for the passage?


A)  Science and social forces

B)  Science and the horrors of war

C)  Science and world peace
