2. Read the following passage and answer the questions given at the end. (The answer must be in your
own words.
Space travel is by far the most expensive type of exploration ever undertaken by man. The vast expenditure
of money and human effort now being devoted to projects for putting man into space might well be applied to
ends more practically useful and more conducive to human happiness. It is a strange world in which tens of
millions of pounds are spent to give one man a ride round the earth at thousands of miles an hour, while beneath
him in his orbit live millions for whom life is a daily struggle to win a few coins to buy their daily bread. The
money and effort that go into the development and construction of a single type of space-rocket would more
than suffice to rid several countries of suchscourge as malaria or typhoid fever, to name only two of the diseases
that medical science has conquered but still persist in the world simply because not enough money and effort
are devoted to theireradication.Why should the richer countries of the world be pouring their resources into
space when poverty and disease on the earth are crying out of relief? One could give a cynical answer to this
question and assert that man's expensive adventures into space are merely the by-products of the struggle
between great powers for prestige and possible military advantage.

(i) Why is it a strange world?
