In this Section you have four short. passages. After each passage, you will find some questions based on the passage. First, read a passage and answer the questions based on it. You are required to select your an~wers based on the contents of the passage and opinions of the author only. PASSAGE I Literature and history are twin sisters, inseparable, In the days of our own grandfathers, and -for many generations before them, the basis of education was the Greek and Roman classics for the educated, and the. Bible for all. In the classical authors. and in the Bible, history and literature were closely" intervolved, and it is that circumstance which made the old form of education so stimulating to the thought and imagination of our ancestors. To read the classical authors and to read the Bible was to read at once the history and the literature of the three greatest races of the ancient world. No doubt the classics and the Bible were read in a manner we now consider uncritical but they were read according to the best tenets of the time and formed a great humahistic education. Today the study both of the classics and of the Bible has dwindled to small proportions. What has taken their place? To some extent the' vacuum has been fi1led by a more correct knowledge of history and a wider range of literature. But I fear that the greater part of it has been filled up with rubbish,
