Questions on Sitting Arrangement Based on Passage for CLAT 2020

Read the​​ Passage carefully and answer the following questions.

Passage I

It is impossible for a well-educated, intellectual or brave man to make money the chief object of his thought, just as it is for him to make his dinner the principal object of them. All healthy people like their dinners, but their dinner is not the main object of their lives. So all healthy minded people like making money - ought to like it, and to enjoy the sensation of winning it, but the main object of their life is not money; it is something better than money. A good soldier, for instance, mainly wishes to do his fighting well. He is glad of his pay, very properly so, and justly grumbles when you keep him ten years without it - still his main notion of life is to win battles, not to be paid for winning them. So of the doctor. They like fees, no doubt, ought to like them; yet if they are brave and well-educated, the entire object of their lives is not fees. They, on the whole, desire to cure the sick; and if they are good doctors, and the choice were fairly put to them, they would rather cure their patient, and lose the fees, then kill him and get it. And so with all other brave and rightly trained men; their work is first, their fees second – very important, no doubt, but still second. But in every nation, there are a vast number of people who are ill-educated, cowardly and stupid. And with these people, just as certainly, the fee is first and work second, as with brave people the work is first and fee second.
