Read the passage to answer questions 5-6


Preventing a war is difficult. It is a part of high politics. Feelings run high. Attempts to bring about peace are open to misunderstanding. Instead of bringing people together, attempts at peace-making sometimes set them further apart. The path of the peace-maker is indeed hard. The UN has succeeded, in a few cases, in bringing peace where there was no peace before. But in a great many cases, the results have not been satisfactory. The world is full of little quarrels between nations. Any one of these little quarrels might be responsible for the outbreak of a new world war. But let us not despair, for there is one part of the work of the UN that fills us with hope. This is the work of fighting social evils. 5. The UN has remained more successful in: A. B. C. D.

For one week in the fall, Desert X gets consistent rainfall. The environment around Desert X is ideally suited to the needs of Plant Y.
