1.      Read the following passage, complete the statements by choosing the correct option.

The fire which  broke out in a Colaba  guest house recently  shows that elementary precautions  against fire hazards are not being  taken in the city. Rooms are built on mezzanine floors without  providing either windows  or ventilations. Often, there is no separate exit  in these structures which  are added on to buildings  situated  in  narrow lanes in highly congested areas. Fortunately, the fire at Colaba broke out in the afternoon when most of the guests were out. Otherwise, the poisonous fumes  from the synthetic material within would have suffocated and killed scores of people. The fire could have spread to the entire  building which is  full of wooden beams and stair cases. Such scandalous fire traps invariably endanger the lives  of the fire-fighting staff as well. What is worse, even newly constructed buildings in Mumbai ignore fire-safety norms. Clearly, the municipal staff is not doing its duty. Ironically, the building which caught fire in Colaba, houses an architects office. Had it gone up in flames, the tragedy would have been doubly compounded because society  looks  up to these professionals  for guidance and norms. Unfortunately,  with  the Municipal  Corporation  also proving increasingly  incapable  ofprotecting  citizen's  interests,  it is  now upto the people to come together and oppose illegal  constructions  in their  areas.
