Question 1
PASSAGE 1In this age, when people’s involvement in day-to-day matters is mounting, it is the electronic system that offers a potential service infrastructure which could, with careful programming, probably take care of a very large element of what we describe as mechanical, procedural governance without all the distortions, corruptions and harassments which constitute the daily misery of the average citizens. Of course, the electronic system will only behave to the extent that they are properly programmed, but this is not a difficult job today. Once we move our minds beyond the more use of electronic revolution for business efficiency and higher profit abilities and apply it to the task of reducing the routine repetitive activities of governance, we will conserve time and energy for more important and creative-tasks. We can rather say that electronic revaluation can make far better and more effective handling of real everyday problems, additionally providing the basic service of computerized information banks. Even in less developed conditions, the potential of the electronic network to take over a great deal of what is called bureaucratic ‘paper work’ has been vividly demonstrated. Licensing system involving endless form-filling in endless copies; tax matters which baffle millions of citizens, particularly those who have nothing to hide; election systems which require massive supervisory mobilization of referendums based on mini-scale samples which seldom reflect the reality at the social base. At all these points, the electronic advantage is seen and recognized. However, we must proceed further. It is not a difficult task to foresee a situation where the citizen with his personalized computer entry card, his ‘number’, is able to enter the electronic network for a variety of needs now serviced by regiments of officials, high and low. In fact, it is already happening in a lot of countries. From simple needs, we will move to a more complex servicing, and ultimately into creativity or what is called ‘artificial intelligence’.According to the passage, what is the limitation of the electronic system?

Question 6
PASSAGE 2What is immediately needed today is the establishment of a World Government or an International Federation of Mankind. It is the utmost necessity of the world today, and all those persons who wish to see all human beings happy and prosperous naturally feel it keenly. Of course, at times, we all feel that many of our problems of our political, social and cultural life would come to an end if there were one Government all over the world. Travellers, businessmen, seekers of knowledge and teachers of righteousness know very well that great impediments and obstructions are faced by them when they pass from one country to another, exchange goods, get informa-tion, and make an effort to spread their good gospel among their fellow-men. In the past religious sects divided one set of people against another, colour of the skin or construction of the body set one against the other. But today when philosophical light has exploded the darkness that was created by religious differences, and when scientific knowledge has falsified the theory of social superiority and when modern inventions have enabled human beings of all religious views and of all races and colours to come in frequent contact with one another, it is the governments of various countries that keep people of one country apart from those of another. They create artificial barriers, unnatural distinctions, unhealthy isola-tion, unnecessary fears and dangers in the minds of the common men who by their nature want to live in friendship with their fellow-men. But all these evils would cease to exist if there were one Government all over the world.What is the urgent need of the world today ?
