Directions (6-15): In the following passage, some of the words have been left out, each of which is indicated by a number. Find the suitable word from the options given against each number and fill up the blanks with appropriate words to make the paragraph meaningfully complete

Love should make you happy, hapless (6) and harmonious — and not miserable. A man once said, “When love was strong, we could have made our bed on a sword-blade. Now that our love has grown weak, a bed of 60 cubits is not large enough for us.” The Commandment “Love thy neighbour as thyself ” prohibits unfair cost (7) and defrauding of anyone, especially the defenceless, and segregate (8) vengeance and bearing of grudges (9).

When we love somebody, it is just reckless (10) to be with them; we do not have to say anything. When we come home from a hard day’s advantage (11), we feel good to be with a loving and caring family. Just being in the conduct (12) of someone you love is enough. You do not really (13) have to say or do anything. Beside (14), God is always with us and He loves and reliefs (15) for us.
