Directions (Q. Nos. 36-40) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
In this work of incessant and feverish activity, men have little time to think, much less to consider ideals and objectives. Yet how are we to act, even in the present, unless we know which way we are going and what our objectives are?
