Answer the Question, Based on the Following Information. - English Language

MCQ

Answer the question, based on the following information. Indicate which of the statements given with that particular question, is consistent with the information given in the passage below.

A Holistic Viewpoint

It is now recognised by modern science that the universe at the subatomic level does not have solid material objects, but consists of only wavelike patterns which represent probabilities of interconnections between other interconnections, all of which together constitute an inseparable web of inter-relationships constituting the entire universe. Fritz of Capra therefore, views the universe not as “an assemblage of independent parts” but as “a dynamic web of inter-related events” in which each part of the web determines the structure of the whole. Geoffrey Chew views such inter-penetrating and interdependent relationships in the universe in terms of a “bootstrap” theory which implies that all forces in the universe are inseparably linked together, every part affects every other part, and the whole world is held together so to say, by bootstraps. David Bohm refers to a holographic concept which implies not only that every part is connected with every other part within the whole but also that, in a sense, each part contains the whole. This, according to David Bohm, recognises the “Undivided wholeness” of the entire universe instead of the classical idea of analysability of the world into separately and independently existent parts. Choose the appropriate option.

Options

  • there are many solid material objects in the universe

  • the entire universe has a web of inter-relationships

  • the universe comprises of a number of independent parts

  • these independent parts determine the structure of the web

Solution

the entire universe has a web of inter-relationships

Explanation:

The entire universe has a web of inter-relationships  The passage explains the inter-relationships of the universe in terms of bootstrap theory.  Both 'there are many solid material objects in the universe' and 'the universe comprises of a number of independent parts' are contradictory to what is stated in the passage. 'these independent parts determine the structure of the web' continues from 'the universe comprises of a number of independent parts' so it is also incorrect. 'the entire universe has a web of inter-relationships' refers to lines 2-3.
