English Quiz For SSC Exam: Misc.

Directions (1-5): Read the following passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four given alternatives.

The Ages of Faith, which is praised by our neo-scholastics, were the times the clergy had all the things their own way. Daily life was full of miracles wrought by saints and wizardry, perpetrated by devils and necromancers.
Many thousands of witches were burnt at the stake. The sins of men were punished by pestilence, famine, earthquake, flood and fire. And yet, strange to say, they were even more sinful than they are nowadays.

To suppose that there are human beings at the antipodes was heresy. It was generally held, though modern Catholics took a milder view, that the immense majority of mankind was dammed. Dangers were held to lurk at every turn.
