Read the following passage carefully and answer questions 44 to 48:

The literary distaste for politics, however, seems to be focused not so much on the largely
murky practice of politics in itself as a subject of literary representation but rather more on how
it is often depicted in literature, i.e., on the very politics of such representation. A political novel
often turns out to be not merely a novel about politics but a novel with a politics of its own, for it
seeks not merely to show us how things are but has fairly definite ideas about how things should
be, and precisely what one should think and do in order to make things move in that desired
direction. In short, it seeks to convert and enlist the reader to a particular cause or ideology; it
often is (in an only too familiar phrase) not literature but propaganda. This is said to violate the
very spirit of literature which is to broaden our understanding of the world and the range of our
sympathies rather than to narrow them down through partisan commitment. As John Keats said,
We hate poetry that has a palpable design upon us.
Another reason why politics does not seem amenable to the highest kind of literary
representation seems to arise from the fact that politics by its very nature is constituted of ideas
and ideologies. If political situations do not lend themselves to happy literary treatment, political
ideas present perhaps an even greater problem in this regard. Literature, it is argued, is about
human experiences rather than about intellectual abstractions; it deals in what is called the felt
reality of human flesh and blood, and in sap and savour. (rasa) rather than in and lifeless ideas.
In an extensive discussion of the matter in her book Ideas and the Novel, the American novelist
Mary McCarthy observed that ideas are still today felt to be unsightly in the novel though that
was not so in former days, i.e., in the 18th and 19th centuries. Her formulation of the precise
nature of the incompatibility between ideas on the one hand and the novel on the other betrays

perhaps a divided conscience in the matter and a sense of dilemma shared by many writers and
readers: An idea cannot have loose ends, but a novel, I almost think, needs them. Nevertheless,
there is enough in common for the novelists to feel the attraction of ideas while taking up arms
against them most often with weapons of mockery.

Read the following passage and answer the question No. 24-29.
Nationalism, of course, is a curious phenomenon which at a certain stage in a countrys
history gives life, growth and unity but, at the same time, it has a tendency to limit one, because
one thinks of ones country as something different from the rest of the world. Ones perspective
changes and one is continuously thinking of ones own struggles and virtues to the exclusion of
other thoughts. The result is that the same nationalism which is the symbol of growth for a
people becomes a symbol of the cessation of that growth. Nationalism, when it becomes
successful sometimes goes on spreading in an aggressive way and becomes a danger
internationally. Whatever line of thought you follow, you arrive at the conclusion that some kind
of balance must be found. Otherwise, something that was good can turn into evil. Culture, which
is essentially good becomes not only static but aggressive and something that breeds conflict and
hatred when looked at from a long point of view. How do you find a balance, I dont know. Apart
from the political and economic problems of the age, perhaps, that is the greatest problem today
because behind it there is tremendous search for something which it cannot find. We turn to
economic theories because they have an undoubted importance. It is folly to talk of culture or
even god, when human beings starve and die. Before one can talk about anything else one must
provide the normal essentials of life of human beings. That is where economics comes in. Human
beings today are not in a mood to tolerate this suffering, starvation and inequality when they see
that the burden is not equally shared. Others profit while they only bear the burden.

24. The greatest problem in the middle of the passage refers to the question
(A) How to mitigate hardship to human being
