UPSC CSE 2018 PRELIMS CSAT PART -7 AS EXAM Indian Administrative ServicesBY: AAKRITI
Passage 10: I am a scientist, privileged to be somebody who tries to understand nature using the tools of science. But it is also clear that there are some really important questions that science cannot really answer, such as : Why is there something instead of nothing? Why are we here? In those domains, I have found that faith provides a better path to answers. I find it oddly anachronistic that in today's culture there seems to be a widespread presumption that scientific and spiritual views are incompatible.
17. Which of the following is the most logical and rational inference that can be made from the above passage? (a) It is the faith and not science that can finally solve all the problems of mankind (b) Science and faith can be mutually complementary if their proper domains are understood. (c) There are some very fundamental questions which cannot be answered by either science or faith. (d) In today's culture, scientific views are given more importance than spiritual views.
Passage 11: . Though I have discarded much of past tradition and custom, and am anxious that India should rid herself of all shackles that bind and contain her and divide her people, and suppress vast numbers of them, and prevent the free development of the body and the spirit; though I seek all this, yet I do not wish to cut myself off from that past completely. I am proud of that great inheritance that has been and is, ours and I am conscious that I too, like all of us, am a link in that unbroken chain which goes back to the dawn of history in the immemorial past of India.
18. The author wants India to rid herself of certain past bonds because (a) he is not able to see the relevance of the past (b) there is not much to be proud of (c) he is not interested in the history of India (d) they obstruct her physical and spiritual growth
