4 V. Make a precis of the following passage in about one-third of its length: (1 10=10) 22. We have been inventing machines at a growing pace now for about three hundred years. This is a short span even in our recorded history and it is not a thousand part of our history as men. In that short moment of our time, we have found a remarkable insight into the workings of nature. We have used it to make ourselves for more flexible in our adaptation to the outside world than any other animal has ever been. We can survive in climates which even germs find difficult. We can grow our own food and meat. We can travel over land and we can tunnel and swim and fly all in one body. More important than any of these, we have come nearest to the dream, which landmark had that animals might inherit the skills which their parents learnt. We have discovered the means to record our experience so that others may live it again. The history of other animal species shows that the most successful in the struggle for survival have been those which were most

5 adaptable to changes in their world. We have made ourselves by means of our tools beyond all measure more adaptable from any other species, living or extinct and we continue to do so with gathering speed. Yet today we are afraid of our own shadow. USAGE - A 23.
