Question

MCQ

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

When we corked open the champagne on January 1, 2010, we believed technology was a force leading us to a digitally enabled Promised Land. In the bright future that beckoned, all the world’s knowledge would be at everyone’s fingertips and 1984 would be just another book on the shelf rather than one that should be re-read for its cautionary tale of modern tyranny. Fast-forward as we ready to uncork the champagne once again, this time to greet the Roaring ’20s and even more disruption than we saw in the teen decade lies ahead. Quick-fire technological change has opened up whole new landscapes and minefields. Back in the early days of the past decade, we still thought we’d shape technology. Right now, though, that’s not happened and you’re happily working from home as you can be “virtually” in touch with your office 24x7. With the help of data mining, information has become freely accessible.

Out of the following options, which one is the most appropriate logical corollary to the given passage?

Options

  • The government will now act as a watchdog and keep an eye on invasion of privacy by data mining companies.

  • Individual privacy can become one of the biggest casualties in today’s age of easily accessible information.

  • Employers will ask their employees to be on their toes 24X7 because virtual work has become a reality nowadays, thanks to the enhanced technological advancements.

  • People have the option to safeguard their personal information from being pilfered by companies and organisations with ulterior motive.

Solution

Individual privacy can become one of the biggest casualties in today’s age of easily accessible information.

Explanation:

Refer to the last sentence of the caselet.

Individual privacy can become one of the biggest casualties in today’s age of easily accessible information is the most appropriate logical corollary because data mining might lead to an invasion of privacy.

Employers will ask their employees to be on their toes 24X7 because virtual work has become a reality nowadays, thanks to the enhanced technological advancements is out of scope because there is nothing to suggest that employers will now ask employees to work 24x7.

The government will now act as a watchdog and keep an eye on invasion of privacy by data mining companies is out of scope because there is nothing to suggest that the government will step up its surveillance.

People have the option to safeguard their personal information from being pilfered by companies and organisations with ulterior motive is wrong because the given passage does not give us any information on whether people have the option to safeguard their private space. Option (4) is merely a conjecture.
