Direction (Q. No. 44 to 47): Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate option.
There is nothing men desire more fervently than this mighty will. It may be the most selfish or unselfish of desires. We may long for it for its own sake or for the sake of some purpose that means more to us than praise. We are eager to escape from that continuous promises of humiliation of the promises we have made to ourselves and broken, It’s all very well to talk about being baffled to fight better, but that implies a will on the heroic scale. Most of us, as we see our resolutions fly out into the sun, only to “fall with broken wings before they have more than begun their journey, are inclined at times to relapse into despair. On the other hand, Nature is prodigal, and nothing so much as good resolutions. In spite of the experience of half a lifetime of failure, we can still draw upon her for these with the excitement of faith in our hearts. Perhaps there is some instinct for perfection in us which thus makes us deny our past and stride off into the future forgetful of our chains. It is the first step that counts, says the proverb. Alas! we know that is the step that nearly everybody can take. It is when we are about to take the steps that follow that our ankle feels the drag of old habit. For even for those of us who are richest in good resolutions are the creatures of habit just as the badly virtuous are. The only difference is that we are the slaves of old habits while they are the masters of new ones.
