Directions (1-8): Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow by choosing the best alternative.

What is the future which awaits our children? The underlying assumption of the question that Indian children are the future is itself dubious. It can legitimately be asked whether a student who is well fed, attending a boarding school in the salubrious climate of the hills and learning to use computers has any future in common with a malnourished child who goes to a school with no blackboards, if indeed he does go to school. The latter may have no worthwhile future at all. And it might be worthwhile to analyze the significance of this marginalization of more than 75% of the children of this country. The failure to provide an infrastructure for primary education in the villages of India more than 60 years after independence is in sharp contrast with the sophisticated institutions, for technical institutes of higher education are funded by the government, which essentially means that the money to support them comes from taxes. And since indirect taxation forms a substantial part of the taxes collected by the government, the financial burden is borne by all the people. LK Jha put it graphically when he observed that 25 paise of every rupee spent on educating an IIT student comes from the pockets of men and women whose children may never enter a proper classroom.
