Section-A – Reading
Q-1 Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
Man is a gregarious animal that lives in society. His neighbors are the people immediately around him. Due to their proximity and constant pressure from society, they play a crucial role in our lives. Its importance was recognized by Jesus Christ more than two thousand years ago when in one of the Ten Commandments he said: “Love your neighbor as you love God.” He subscribes to the view that God is present in all human beings. By loving our neighbor, we should not only have peace and happiness, but also draw closer to God. Just as love begets love, if we show love and compassion to our neighbor, they are bound to reciprocate. This relationship can bring immense joy and happiness in our lives because they are always available to help us in our hour of need. In today’s highly mobile and competitive society, our friends or family are rarely available near or around us when we need them most. It is in these difficult times that the help and assistance of our immediate neighbor comes as a blessing to us. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we have good and friendly relations with our neighbors.
