Questions on Box Puzzle Based on Passage for CLAT 2020

Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions.

Passage​​ I

A research report published by a reputed international organisation states that one-fourth of the​​ women, who die in the world today, are Indian. The report adds that the situation in the country was​​ very grave during the last two decades of this century as the deaths were mostly due to malnutrition​​ and disease. Despite this fact, it is found that the media is indifferent to building public awareness in​​ this regard. From a month-long study of newspapers and periodicals, it was clear that there was no​​ deliberate, systematic or sustained effort to sensitise the public by investigative and factual coverage​​ on the women. It was also found that the meagre coverage, not more than one percent, was related to​​ issues of women-education, liberation etc, but not with survival and development. The rural woman​​ hardly figured in the media so says the report.​​ The​​ expectant mothers are undernourished, anaemic and hence they give birth to children who are​​ handicapped. These children do not receive prenatal care. Even if such children survive, four to six​​ months later they become susceptible to diarrhoea, respiratory or other infections because of​​ insufficient nutrition, incomplete immunisation and improper treatment. The result is that by the time​​ such children reach 3 years of age, they start showing signs of wasting. They do not grow to their full​​ mental and physical potential.​​ Unfortunately, the bias against girl baby is still continues. In​​ the slum areas in the India’s Metropolitan cities, there is still exist a bias against immunization of baby girls. The report expresses a feeling that of social awareness and not merely laws could provide women with the protection and the facilities they deserve.
