Directions (Qs. 55 to 60): Read the following passage carefully and answer
The catalytic fact of the twentieth century is uncontrollable development,
consumerist society, political-materialism, and spiritual devaluation. This
inordinate development has led to the transcendental ‘second reality’ of sacred
