What Can Be Concluded from the Above? - Logical Reasoning

Question

MCQ

Direction: Read the following passage and answer the question that follows:

With that deadline now a decade away, the world is set to miss most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Just two of them — eliminating preventable deaths among newborns and under-fives and getting children into primary schools — are closest among all the goals of being achieved. By contrast, the goal to eliminate extreme poverty will not be met because some 430 million people are expected still to be living in such conditions in 2030. Targets to end hunger and to protect climate and biodiversity are completely off track. Whereas some of the richer countries are making a degree of progress in the SDGs overall, two-thirds of poorer ones are not expected to meet those that relate even to their most basic needs.

What can be concluded from the above?

Options

  • Sustainable development remains a utopia for most of the world.

  • There is a lack of commitment to the SDGs among most of the developed countries

  • The world is close to eliminating preventable deaths among newborns.

  • Today, every child in the world is enrolled in a primary school.
