(Q.Nos 75 to 79) Read the following passage. Select the best answer from among the given choices for each question: Most of us use the products of science – railways, aeroplanes, electricity, phones and thousands of others – without thinking how they came into existence. We take them for granted, as if we are entitled to them as a matter of right. And we are very proud of the fact that we live in an advanced age and are ourselves so very advanced. There is no doubt that our age is a very different one from previous ages and I think it is perfectly correct to say that it is far more advanced.
