Passage Reading and English Comprehension

Paragraph one

All the sound reasons ever given for conserving other natural resources apply to the conservation of wildlife – and with three-fold power. When a spendthrift squanders his capital it is lost to him and his heirs; yet it goes somewhere else. When a nation allows any one kind of natural resource to be squandered it must suffer a real, positive loss; yet substitutes of another kind can generally be found. But when wildlife is squandered it does not go elsewhere, like squandered money; it cannot possibly be replaced by any substitute, as some inorganic resources are: it is simply an absolute, dead loss, gone beyond even the hope of recall.

Paragraph two

The public still has a hazy idea that Nature has an overflowing sanctuary of her own, somewhere or other, which will fill up the gaps automatically. The result is that poaching is commonly regarded as a venial offence, poachers taken red-handed are rarely punished, and willing ears are always lent to the cry that rich sportsmen are trying to take the bread out of the poor settler's mouth. The poor settler does not reflect that he himself, and all other classes alike, really have a common interest in the conservation of any wildlife that does not conflict with legitimate human development.

1227. The author of paragraph one probably uses the expression ‘three-fold power’

(a) because there are three-times as many reasons for conserving wildlife
(b) to be more dramatic that saying “double-power”
(c) to emphasize the contrast between loss of money, loss of other resources, and loss of wildlife
(d) to stress the need for saving money, resources and time

1228. From the context, the word ‘venial’ in paragraph two most nearly means

(a) major
(b) criminal
(c) frequent
(d) trivial

1229. Both paragraphs apparently imply that

(a) there is no source from which wildlife, once exterminated, can be replaced
(b) poachers must be punished
(c) wildlife has much in common with other natural resources
(d) conservation is in conflict with human development

1230. It can be inferred that the spendthrift in paragraph one and the poor settler mentioned in paragraph two are alike in that they are

(a) in conflict with the aims of conservation
(b) inclined to waste natural resources
(c) more concerned with the present than the future
(d) unable to control their spending
