Question 42
42-46: Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow based on your understanding of the passage: Despite the difficulties, stabilization of the world’s population appears to be a necessary step if the future’s problems are ever to be solved. Without this, whatever else is done, the world’s inability to provide enough food seems inevitable. Up until about 1950, growth in the world’s food supply came almost entirely from expanding the amount of land under cultivation. Since then, it has come increasingly from high energy inputs of chemical fertilizers that new high-yield varieties of crops depend upon, of pesticides and herbicides, and of fuel to run tractors and other mechanical equipment, including irrigation pumps. The source of almost all this energy is oil, yet, although the demand for food is projected to rise until at least the middle of the 21st century, oil supplies are diminishing and becoming more expensive. Surely, these trends will continue. Insufficient food supplies are bound to result in increased structural violence in the form of higher death rates in the world’s “underdeveloped” countries. This surely will have an impact on the “developed” countries, with their relatively stable populations and high living standards. It is hard to imagine how such countries could exist peacefully side by side with others experiencing high death rates and abysmally low living standards. (In 1993. 1.3 billion people lived on less than $ 1 per day and another 3 billion lived on less than $2 per day; the situation today is no better.) Already, the combination of overpopulation and poverty is causing a rising tide of migration from the impoverished to the more affluent countries of Europe and North America, with a consequent rise of intolerance, antiforeign feeling, and general social unrest.What becomes necessary if the future’s problems are to be solved?
A
Equitable distribution
B
Population stabilization
C
Political stabilization
D
Environmental protection
Question 43
The major reason for the growth in world food supply after 1950       
A
High energy fertilizers
B
Pesticides and herbicides
C
Fuel to run tractors
D
All the above
Question 44
Insufficient food supply is one of the reasons for the structural violence in       
A
Developed countries
B
Developing countries
C
Underdeveloped countries
D
In the whole world
Question 45
A general social unrest results from        
A
Poverty and overpopulation
B
Migration
C
High living standards
D
Low death rates
Question 46
By the middle of 21st century the demand is going to increase for        
A
Power
B

C
Food

Water

Question 69
69-73: Read the passage below and answer the following questions based on your understanding of the passage. The specialities of one group may be known to the other members of the society and yet not used by them, because they are not patterns for their behavior. Many American adult men know the Boy Scout salute, having once been scouts, but they do not use it as a form of greeting after they have left scouting behind. In a complex society, however, most specialities remain unknown to most of the people. This may be because the specialities require unique aptitudes or a rigorous course of training which is undertaken by only a few, or it may be that the specialities are the secret and hidden knowledge of a few, kept within their closed circle for the benefits that may be derived from secretiveness. The result is that no individual can ever acquire or personally manifest all the elements of his or her society’s culture. It means also that no anthropologist, even the most assiduous, can ever make note of, to say nothing of record, all the aspects of any culture, even the simplest known to humanity. This, then, provides one answer to the questions, often asked :“ How can one speak of American culture when there is such a difference between the culture of New Yorkers and that of Kentucky mountaineers ? — between the Italians of Lower Manhattan and the Scandinavians of Minnesota ? — between the Yankees of Vermont and the paisanos of Monterey?” The universals shared by all Americans are the common binding and integrating elements of American culture and society. The specialities of the different regional groups and socioeconomic classes are internally differentiating elements which when taken together, are referred to as subcultures. Sub cultures are
