    Education of man does not begin at school, it begins at birth. It ends, not when he graduate from the university, but at this death. Hence education is a life-long process. "Any modification brought about in the behavior of an individual as a result of his interaction with the environment constituted learning.” The child learns through his experience. It goes on forever without any break or barrier. Thus education becomes an active and dynamic process. It is much more than schooling, memorizing or learning a prescribed syllabus. Therefore, J.S. Mackenzie rightly says, "education is a process that goes on through out life, and is promoted by almost every experience in life.” When the learner comes in contact with real situation, he utilized all his past experiences that are relevant to it and gains new experiences. Thus the child goes on reconstructing experiences throughout the whole life. Therefore, education is considered by the educationists as an active and dynamic process.

    Idea Solution :

    Every one knows discontent is not good for anyone. There are many problems related to our life by which we become unhappy. Do you know what it means to be discontented? It is very difficult to understand discontent, because most of us canalize discontent in a certain direction and thereby smother it. That is, our only concern is to establish ourselves in a secure position with well-established interests and prestige, so as not to be disturbed. It happens in homes and in schools too. The teachers don't want to be disturbed, and that is why they follow the old routine; because the moment one is really discontented and begins to inquire, to question, there is bound to be disturbance. But it is only through real discontent that one has initiative.

    Q:

    After carefully reading the above text, choose the correct option from the following:

    1) A
    2) D
    3) B
    4) C
    5) A
