Q:

A passage is given with 5 questions following it. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.

Even the majority of elders turn their homes into hives of worry as they have too little to do in too much time. Those who have retired thus find retirement tiresome when hobbies, instead, could have turned it into a period of creativity and contentment.

This common problem of inability to utilise leisure pleasurably and profitability is not restricted to Indians. In fact, Japanese are the worse sufferers. Their weekends, rather than increase their enjoyment of life, have wreaked havoc on their health and happiness. Unable to while away the long, unstructured hours, many of them have become addicts to coffee or hard liquor, and have even taken to gambling.

How has this social malady come about? Ironically, the syllabus-loaded education system is the main culprit. It places a heavy work-load on children and youth, laying emphasis as it does on memory rather than intelligence.

 

The author thinks that

 

A) Authorities are more appreciative of the syllabus-loaded education system B) Hobbies play an important role in changing the unfortunate situation
C) Co-curricular activities are discouraged D) Only Indians suffer from inability to utilise leisure

Answer:   B) Hobbies play an important role in changing the unfortunate situation
