Directions (1-5) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it in the context of the passage.
The world of today has achieved much, but for all its declared love for humanity it has based itself far more on hatred and violence than on the virtues that make man human. War is the negation of truth and humanity. War may be unaviodable sometimes but its progeny are terrible to contemplate. Not mere killing, for man must die, but the deliberate and persistent propagation of hatred and falsehood, which gradually become the normal habits of the people. It is dangerous and harmful to be guided in our life’s course by hatreds and aversions, for they are waste of energy and limit and twist the mind, and prevent it from perceiving the truth.
Question-1 : According to the author, the achievements of the world are not impressive because—
there is nothing much to boast of
they are mostly in the field of violence
its love of humanity is a pretence
the world hasn’t made any achievement
