  1.     Read the following passage carefully.                                                        

The idea  of euthanasia,  of hastening  the death of someone from motives  of compassion,  covers two main situations.    The first is  where someone is  close  to death and can be kept alive  briefly, with  intensive  medical  care. The official  reason for the use of every possible technique on patients, for whom there seems, little hope is that we never know that there is no hope of at least a brief recovery.

The second situation, in which it is proposed to end the life of someone who is not expected to die at once from natural causes, is more morally doubtful.  In so far as the suggestion may be based on the motion of the 'quality of life' experienced by the patient, this  is  an inadequate  approach to human beings.    At one extreme we may be dealing with a birth that cannot be called 'human' at all: such a being likely to live at the most for only a few hours.  Many feel  that during  this  time  it ought to be given  ordinary nursing care.  Bringing to an end of the life of say, a spastic  child, by the deliberate refusal of the fullest medical care seems morally indefensible.

Read the questions  given  below  and write  the option  you consider the most appropriate  in your answer sheet.

(1)    Euthanasia  means :

(a)    a place in Asia.

(b)    bringing about gentle  and easy death.

(c)    enthusiasm.

(d)    the youth in Asia.

(2)    One reason for trying all possible measures to save a person is :

(a)    death is  horrifying.

(b)    there is possibility of a brief recovery.

(c)    doctors need to be compassionate.

(d)    science  may invent  more sophisticated  machines  later.

(3)    The people who argue for euthanasia  advocate it saying  :

(a)    the patient is not living a qualitative life.

(b)    we must not spend quality resources on a sick person.

(c)    we should not bother about the ailing.

(d)    it can be defended morally.
