Test 2 – English Comprehension
Q.13 -25 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Power and possession have been central pursuits of modern civilization for a long time. They blocked out or
distorted other features of the Western Renaissance (revival) which promised so much for humanity. What
people have been and are still being taught to prize are money, success, control over the lives of others,
and acquisition of more and more objects. Modern social, political and economic systems, whether
capitalists, fascist or communist, reject in their working the basic principle that the free and creative
unfoldment of every man, woman and child is the true measure of the worth of any society. Such
unfoldment requires understanding and imagination, integrity and compassion, co-operation among people,
and harmony between the human species and the rest of nature. Acquisitiveness and the pursuit of power
have made the modern man an aggressor against everything that is non-human, an exploiter and
oppressor of those who are poor, meek and unorganized, a pathological type which hates and distrusts the
world and suffers from both acute loneliness and false pride.
The need for a new renaissance is deeply felt by those sensitive and conscientious men and women who
not only perceive the dimensions of the crisis of our age but who also realize that only through conscious
and co-operative human effort may this crisis be met and probably even overcome.
