XAT 2020 Question 17

Question 17

Read the following paragraph and answer the question that follows:
If we can send a human to the Moon, why can’t we build sustainable cities? Defeat cancer? Tackle climate change? So, go the rallying cries inspired by one of humanity’s greatest achievements, the US effort that put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Moon on 20 July 1969.

Which of the following statements, if true, BEST communicates the intent of the paragraph?


From the passage, it is clear that despite having sent man to the moon, we are yet to come up with a solution for cancer or the development of sustainable cities. Hence from the paragraph, we can understand the intention to state that the lateral are more complex issues than the former. Therefore the correct answer is E.
