    Passage (Five Questions)
    The question of race has caused bloodbaths throughout history. Take the case of the Negro, a negro is someone with black skin who comes from Africa. It is an old fashioned word and is offensive. Some people used to write that way deliberately. The word was later replaced by “colored” which gave way to “black”. Black is a color with negative suggestions. So we have expressions like “black day” and “blackmail”. So no wonder the work “black” too assumed unfavorable meanings. (Although in the 1960’s the famous slogan ‘Black is beautiful’ was coined, and it did not help.) The blacks of the United Stats therefore came to be called Afro-Americans. Now, the politically correct phrase is African.

    If a country should have a message for its people, it should be a message of human dignity. The ideals of a nation should be of the freedom of ideas, speech, press, the right to assemble and the right to worship.

    Passage (Five Questions)
    Nobody can argue that the acquisition of knowledge is more fun and easier with computers. The mere activity of touching an exploring this device constituted an enjoyable task for a child. This, accompanied by the relaxing attitude and software interactivity, usually contributes to a better grasping of new knowledge. At a higher educational level the availability of digital books, simulators and other academic materials provide the student with an ever accessible source of information, that otherwise would not be at hand.

    Passage (Five Questions)
    The world is becoming a dangerous place to live in, and this is despite our claims of being civilized, of having evolved from the primitive to the modern man and from the cave man to cultured being.
    Many reasons can be attributed to this. A man longs to be the king of all kingdoms, but is too extravagant and idle. He desires that his writ should run through the whole world. But then he is lazy and lethargic. Man is mean, far inferior to other species. We are more human than humane. We have negative qualities such as anger, ego, envy, greed, hatred, and jealousy, that we should consider overcoming.
    We have allowed these qualities to become our consuming passions. We think that we are mightier than most. We think we are capable of destroying anything by using our might. Today, we have acquired weapons of mass destruction, which are capable of obliterating all life from the face of this planet.
