Read the following Passage:-

Books are the chief carriers of civilization: because of them, ideas live and spread. How important book s are, you can judge from the fact that very hot countries as it is well-known, are slow in becoming civilized in the modern sense. There are many reasons for this, but one of the most important is that the white ants which live in tropics eat up all the books. For example, in tropical South America, there are practically no books, more than forty y years or fifty years old. Where there are no books, there are no records and no literature; the ideas and knowledge of one generation can only be handed down by word of mouth, and it is much more difficult for the race to progress and become civilized. But it is not use having books unless people can read them, and learning to read is a part of what is called education.

4.When there are no books, there are no records and no literature and ideas, and knowledge of one generation can handed down by word of mouth. This retards growth of civilization.
